3. Divide turkey mixture into 4 equal portions and form into burger patties
4. Put on a plate; grab the 4 pineapple slices and head to the grill.
5. Place the burgers and the pineapple slices on the grill (the pineapple will cook for the same amount of time as the burgers to soften up and get that yummy smokey flavor
6. After approximately 8 minutes, flip the burgers and the pineapple slices (the underside should be nice and brown).
7. After approximately 4 minutes, place one pineapple slice onto the top of each burger.
8. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until burgers are cooked thoroughly and no longer pink in the center.
9. Turn off the grill. Using a long spatula, carefully remove the burgers from the grill (don’t lose those pineapples!) and onto a plate.

HEAVEN in my mouth right here!! I tried this recipe a few months ago and can't get enough of it!! We are a family that loves mexican food! We used to go out and eat it at least once a week... then we started really watching our foods and I started making clean eating versions of our favorite 'go out to eat' meals! This one is top notch! Try it now and you'll be happy you did!!

  • 1lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1 cup of cottage cheese
  • 1 cup of clean salsa
  • 1/2 cup of black beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 4 low carb whole wheat tortillas, cut into strips 

  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees.
  2. In a skillet pan sprayed with nonstick spray, cook the ground turkey and onion until brown.  Once cooked turn to low and add salsa, black beans and taco seasoning and mix together.  Set aside
  3. In a bowl, combine 3/4 cup of the cheddar cheese and the cup of cottage cheese.
  4. In a baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray, line the pan with 1/2 of the tortilla strips.  Scoop 1/2 of the meat mixture on top and spread out, covering the tortillas.  Then add 1/2 of the cheese mix on top of the meat and spread.  Repeat the layers again with remaining strips, meat, and cottage cheese.  Top with remaining cheese.
  5. Cover and bake for 40 minutes and enjoy!  Makes 4 servings at 350 calories each.

Crockpot Chicken Tacos

Okay- this recipe is DELICIOUS! We have it so much at our house.  It is one of those that taste great on a whole wheat tortilla shell, a taco shell or even on a bed of lettuce as a taco salad! I almost always double it so we have lots of leftovers and sometimes freeze it too! Easy recipe and everyone will love it!!


1 lb. chicken breasts
1 can organic black beans
1/2 tub fresh salsa 
1 packet taco seasoning
1/3 cup water
cream cheese

Put everything in the crockpot and cook on low 5-6 hours or high 3-4 hours. Shred chicken before serving.

Ginger Soy Flank Steak

This steak has loads of extra flavor, without much fat and just a little sugar added. So splurge on some steak once in a while. Just make sure to keep your portion size small, and add some vegetables and brown rice on the side. It's such a yummy meal with tons of protein! We don't eat steak that often, but when we do we do it right! This is a super yummy meal that we all enjoy! We almost always serve it with brown rice or quinoa and veggies! Kinda like a stir fry with the ginger/soy sauce! Hope you enjoy!

Ginger Soy Flank Steak
2 Tbsp. fresh ginger, minced
1 Tbsp. garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. red chili flakes
Lime juice from one lime
1 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 Tbsp. low sodium soy sauce
1 (1-1/2 pound) flank steak or tenderized round steak

In a small bowl, combine ginger, garlic, chili flakes, lime juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, and sesame seed oil. Pour mixture over steak and let marinate for 1 hour. Either grill, broil, or pan fry steak over high heat to medium rare or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature on your meat thermometer (see below). NOTE: This steak is best cooked rare to medium rare.
Rare – 120°F
Medium Rare – 125°F
Medium – 130°F

Remove from heat and let steak rest 5 minutes before slicing. With a sharp knife, slice steak thinly against (diagonal) the grain. Place on a platter or individual dinner plates. Makes 6 servings.

Have you been wanting to make a change in your life, but just don't know where to start? Or even how to start? Do you love to help others? Would you love to get paid to be fit and healthy? Would you love to know that your income is a direct reflection of how many lives you are changing? 

Maybe you're a stay at home momma looking for a little 'more?' Maybe you are a momma who is working full time outside of the home and you just want to be at home with your babes! Maybe you don't have kids but you are dreading going out in the bitter cold tomorrow morning to drive to a job that you don't really love. Maybe you are a man who just wants to provide more for your family.. Maybe you really just want an extra $100-$200 a week as play money or to buy that cool car you've been wanting!!

Whatever your reason, whatever your WHY.. consider this...

Making your own schedule- literally.
Being able to get your kids off and on the bus.
Making an extra $500-$1000 a week in your first six months.
Being your own boss.
Getting paid to workout.
Getting incentives each month.
Going on an all expense paid trip to Cancun next year.
And the list goes on....

I had been a stay at home mom for 5 years when I was given this amazing opportunity. I always knew that I wanted to be at home with my kids, but as they get older they really become more and more 'self sufficient' and that was the point that I started wondering what I was going to do. I was feeling lost and I really needed something for ME! I had gone through a few really 'tough spots' where I was questioning a lot in my life. I was back and forth about getting a job, but I also knew that I didn't want to leave my 'day job!' ha!! My kids are not only my life, but they are my priority. So, it was during this time of reevaluation and lots of prayer when 
Beachbody coaching was brought up by a friend. -- I had already done beachbody programs for 6 years!! And I never knew anything about actually being a coach for the company!!!!! So, here I am now... IN LOVE WITH MY WORLD. Able to stay at home with my precious little gems AND getting to help people change their lives--WHICH is MY CALLING! ALL the struggle... The pain, fear, and tough times were leading me to my destiny ALL ALONG!!!

My point is... In the THICK of it... Your life may seem out of control... it may feel like everything is going wrong... You might be struggling... Financially, spiritually, emotionally, and physically... But THE TRUTH IS... it may just be the thing needed to create your AMAZING future!!! Stay strong... Have faith! Everything is going to turn out just how God intends it to!

This is literally a dream job. A dream come true when I felt like I was never going to 'figure it all out.' A job that allows me to do what I love also while being present in my kids' lives and staying at home where I feel I belong to raise my kids and be here for my husband. A job where I get bonuses, all expense paid trips, rewards each month and the satisfaction and JOY of knowing that I am helping people change their LIVES! This is HUGE for me! This is my dreams becoming reality!

Are you ready to kick off a new season of your life? 

Enrolling now: 5 spots available for my February 3rd Coach Basics Program. Learn the ropes and start your new career off right. You will be trained by ME and we will get you off the ground running!

Almond Crusted Tilapia (or Chicken!)

This recipe is so good! It gives your fish or chicken an amazing flavor all while being super healthy! It gets an A+ from my family, so I want to share it with you!!


1 1/2-2 pounds of chicken or tilapia
1 pound bag of unsalted almonds
1 cup (maybe a little more) egg whites
onion powder
garlic powder

This makes a LOT of breading. I usually divide it in half and freeze the half I'm not using for next time! Simple and easy! I'm all about freezing leftovers or 1/2 of dinners so I can just pull them out next time we have it!


Okay- so first thing is first. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. It makes clean up so much easier!!

In a food processor blend the almonds, salt, pepper, paprika, onion and garlic powders until fine.  I honestly just guestimate the seasonings. I am sorry if you are a a measuring person!!! I just put a pinch here and a dash there!! Taste it along the way to see how you like it!

Okay, separate the mixture and freeze half at this point.

Now, take your meat. Cut it into slices. I will put mine in between plastic wrap and 'pound' them until thin. They cook faster and taste better when they are thin!! Usually 6-8 pieces! Put the egg whites in a bowl and now you will want to coat your meat in egg whites. I usually get it pretty wet with egg whites and then I dip the meat into the almond flour mixture! Coat it well and place it on the GREASED cookie sheet with the foil on it. To grease it, I just take a little bit of Olive Oil on a cooking brush and brush the foil with it before I put my chicken down on it. Works great.

If you are like me and like your chicken/fish CRISPY then bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes. At the 10 minute mark I take them out of the oven, flip them over (so they don't get soggy) and finish cooking. THEN I put them under the broiler for about 5 minutes to get the tops really crispy like "fried" chicken!!

Try it tonight! I hope you LOVE it as much as we do!

I generally serve with baked sweet potatoes and baked asparagus with LOTS of garlic ;)

Cinnamon Quinoa Bake

I have to say that this recipe is GREAT!!! Quinoa can be used in so many different dishes and I for one LOVE this recipe.  I will make it on Sunday, cut it into bars and have it for my family for the whole week. A lot of mornings are rush rush rush and it can be hard for my kids to eat breakfast when they wake up... so this recipe is great and they love the 'granola bars!' Give it a try!

Are you on of the MANY people who have made the New Year's Resolution to get fit and healthy this year? The first step is deciding to take action, but the hard part is doing it and following through. Life starts to get in the way, excuses creep in and before you know it, those 3 pounds that you lost in the first week start to come back on and you get overwhelmed and QUIT. Well, not this time. NOT YOU. It is time to commit. It is time to get a system. It is TIME for accountability and support. 

You see, I have literally heard every excuse in the books. I dare someone to throw something at me that I haven't heard before. But, what it boils down to is the fact that YOU are afraid. Afraid of what MIGHT happen, afraid of what could be and afraid of the dreams and goals that you have set for yourself. It's common and it is NORMAL! We have all been there at some point or another. Whether it is health and fitness, a career choice, family, etc.. we all have fears because we are human. I want an opportunity to change your way of thinking. I want an opportunity to help you face those fears and take action. You are worth it. You are worth changing. You are worth being fit and healthy. YOU ARE WORTH IT! I want to help you change the negatives into positives. I want to help you focus on the baby steps that will get you to the BIG PICTURE. I want you to know that there is not going to be an option to give up. NEVER. GIVE. UP!! You are unique. You are amazing. and YOU are YOU! Don't you want to be the best version of you there can be?! I know you do. I know you can have a life that you've only dreamed of. It's all up to you. Are you ready to make it a priority to change?


My fit club is a place where anyone and everyone can come for a fun, FREE workout. We meet once (sometimes twice) a week at my home church and we get our sweat on together! Each week we do something different. Sometimes it is a T25 workout, other times a P90X3 workout, TurboFire, Brazilian Butt Lift and so many others. We also go over meal planning and recipes as well! This is a group of people who commit to each other each week. We commit to showing up, giving it our all and we talk through our week! We talk about the workouts that we have done on our own that week and we keep each other accountable and motivated. We LOVE to help each other strive to be better. It's about personal growth, personal strength and doing it together. Let's do life TOGETHER. It's never too late to start. 

How long does it last?

Our workouts are anywhere from 25-45 minutes. Usually most people get there a little early to find a spot in class, mingle, talk to new friends and just hang out! After the workout is over we ALWAYS high five and congratulate each other for a JOB WELL DONE!!! Then, we shake up some SHAKEOLOGY! We spend some time hanging out afterwards talking about different things beachbody has to offer, different workouts people want to try and some even decide right then and there that Beachbody is FOR THEM and we sign them up with a free account or their own fitness challenge packs!! It's just so awesome to be surrounded by so many like minded people!

I don't workout. I am older. Will this be too hard for me?

We always do a program that has a modifier!! So, I tell EVERYONE at EVERY fitness level that this is FOR YOU. There may be some moves that you will not be able to do AT FIRST, but that's okay. Modify and just keep moving. As long as you are doing SOMETHING, you are burning calories and bettering yourself! What do you have to lose? Just come and bring friends with you! See what all the hype is about!

Do I need to bring anything?

I ask everyone to bring a yoga mat or a towel because sometimes we are on our hands and knees and the floor is hard to get a grip on! Wear workout clothes and bring a bottle of water! That's it! 

What is Shakeology?

Shakeology is literally the healthiest meal of the day and in my opinion it's the tastiest!! Each week we try a new Shakeology recipe after class!! Sometimes it is the amazing vanilla Shakeology that I really like to turn into a Snickerdoodle or the chocolate Shakeology that we recently turned into chocolate covered cherries and OH MY GOSH... HEAVEN in our mouths!!  I always ask for people's preference, so we switch it up!  The sky is the limit on the ways to make our Shakeology! We share the benefits of this magic in a glass!-- check out this article. --->

Why do you have Fit Club? Since it is free, you probably don't make any money?

Hosting a fit club for me is not about money at all!!! I literally want to touch as many people's lives as I can to get them fit and healthy!! I want to inspire people to do more. I literally have a HUGE GOAL to reach as many people on the Gulf Coast to get healthy. It is never about someone's size, shape or whatever. It is about changing the mindset to WANT a change. It is about making a commitment and sticking with it. This is the goal that I have for so many, but it isn't about ME making the goal.. It is about YOU making the goal and following through with it. Fit clubs are a GREAT way for people to realize that working out IS FUN. And if you aren't having fun, then you won't stick with it. Period. Let's have fun together! Bring friends, encourage others, set realistic goals and strive to reach them. This is YOUR YEAR!

If you live in or near Gulfport/Biloxi Mississippi area, PLEASE come and join us every Thursday night at 6:30 pm and the 1st and 3rd Saturday each month for an amazing workout and to make new friends! This is just the beginning. Let's take the Coast by storm! Are you with me?! Contact me for more deets!!!

Clean Eating
 The soul of clean eating is consuming food in its most natural state, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it's a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation, leading to an improved life - one meal at a time. Remember, 80 % of your weight loss is dependent upon the food you eat.  If you workout every day and eat unhealthy, you cannot expect to get great results.  Your results come from the time, energy, and dedication you put into exercise and eating! 

Why Eat Clean?

Feel good about yourself
Reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes, and many other diseases
Have more energy
Reduce the large percentage of obesity
Save money on fad diets that do not keep your weight off
Live a longer life for your husband, children, significant other, and family
When they say you are what you eat, it is not a joke.  It is really something to think about.  If you eat cheeseburgers every day, your body is going to look and feel like one.  If you fill your body with vegetables, your going to most likely feel good, have energy, an look thinner as well!!  

How to Eat Clean:

Drink at least two liters of water a day (8 cups).  Also, limit your alcohol intake to one glass of antioxidant-rich red wine a day. Eat five to six times a day- Eat every 2-3 hours.  Three meals and two to three small snacks. Include a lean protein, plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, and a complex carbohydrate with each meal. This keeps your body energized and burning calories efficiently all day long. If it's hard for you to do 8 cups, really focus on getting 1/2 of your body weight in ounces of water each day! It's vital!

NEVER miss a meal, ESPECIALLY breakfast!!

Carry a cooler loaded with clean-eating foods to get you through the day (if you have the food handy, no excuse for stopping at fast food, pop machine/candy machine or eating other unhealthy food).

Get label savvy- Clean foods contain just one or two ingredients. Any product with a long ingredient list is human-made and not considered clean.
Avoid processed and refined foods- This includes white flour, sugar, bread and pasta. Enjoy complex carbohydrates such as whole grains instead.

Know thy enemies- Steer clear of anything high in saturated and trans fats, anything fried or anything high in sugar.

Avoid calorie-dense food that has no nutritional value

Shop with a conscience- Consume humanely raised and local meats.

Depend on fresh fruits and veggies for fiber, vitamins, and enzymes.

Consume healthy fats- Try to have essential fatty acids every day.

Learn about portion sizes- Work towards eating within them.

Reduce your carbon footprint- Eat produce that is seasonal and local. It is less taxing on your wallet and our environment.

Slow down and savor- Never rush through a meal. Food tastes best when savored. Enjoy every bite!

Make it a family affair- Food is a social glue that should be shared with loved ones. Improve the quality of your family's life along with your own.


Proteins- You should have a protein in each meal.  Your body can handle 25 grams of protein with each meal.

Carbohydrates- You should have between 2-4 servings of complex carbs from grains, bread, and starches per day.  When it comes to complex carbs such as fruits and veges, you should have one serving with each meal, which comes out to 6 servings per day

Fats- Your diet should include 20-30% of fats from your daily food intake.  Avoid trans fats completely.  Saturated fats is not completely bad for you and should have 30 grams or less per day.

Going grocery shopping can be a challenge.  It is important to make a list so you know what your looking for and only get what is one your list.  You save money this way.  Also, there is nothing wrong with buying the off brand food- it is still the same thing!! Frozen is also fine to use, just do not go for canned food! High is sodium and other additives!!

Sometimes, it may seem difficult to eat clean, but having cookbooks handy, such as “The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook” by Tosca Reno or “The Best of Clean Eating” from the Clean Eating Magazine, are some great books with amazing recipes for you and the family!!

   Water is another big factor that plays a part of your weight loss.  Water helps with suppressing your appetite, helps with digestion and relieving the "bloating" feeling people get quite often, flushes the toxins out of your body, and also helps with those cravings!  If you take your weight and divide by 2, you should be drinking that in ounces each day.  Now that does not count if you are pop or coffee drinkers, then you will need additional!!  But why bother putting all that caffeine and artificial flavors/sweeteners when you are trying to flush the toxins out of your body?  Try to stick to just water... it helps tremendously.. and if you are use to caffeine intake and need more energy, try using lemon water, especially first thing in the morning and can be drank through out the day.  Also, using green tea is awesome to help with your cravings (especially at night) and is made of all natural ingredients!  I promise you, if you get rid of the coffee and pop, or even cut down at least in half, you will notice a big difference with your feelings of bloat and cravings for more caffeine and junk!! In taking artificial sweeteners only makes you crave more, so get rid of it all together!!

I get this question A LOT.. WHAT DO I EAT??!!! Well, I'm about to give you several ideas of what you can eat that is healthy and tasty all at the same time! I do not believe in eating foods that don't taste like food! You have to be satisfied in order to stay on track.  You don't want to dislike what you are eating because then you will continue to crave the 'bad stuff' and there will be no changes made! Let's eat yummy foods that are healthy, okay??!

These snacks are ideal and delicious! Here we go!

First thing is first-- You have to count your calories in order to stick to your daily goals. If you are trying to lose weight you especially have to watch what you are eating in order to restrict the calories to lose the pounds. It is science. So basically you will want  your snacks to be between 150-300 calories depending on your goals. And you should have 2-3 snacks a day and 3 meals.

You also need to focus on eating every 2 1/2 - 3 hours. You have to eat to lose weight! That is just how it all works! It will increase your metabolism and your body will work properly! It's not rocket science, food is FUEL! HOWEVER; it will not work if you are eating high calorie, high fat foods! Eat clean, healthy whole foods and you will notice a difference in your body almost immediately! Weight loss is 70% what you are eating! Clean eating is vital! And it is yummy :)

  • ShakeologyShakeology is a meal replacement protein shake that has over 70 NATURAL ingredients, but does so good for your health and heart, along with fighting cravings and giving you energy! You can even make yummy deserts, or on the run shake it in a shaker with water or almond milk and WALAH!!
  • 1 cup of veggies (such as carrots, cucumbers, peppers, etc. ) with 2-3 TBSP of hummus- I thought I would HATE hummus!! I even gagged it down the first few times I had it! But then I found a brand that I liked and stuck to it! Try different kinds before you throw out the idea all together!
  • 1 apple with 14 almonds OR cashews
  • 2 plain unsalted brown rice cakes with 1-2 TBSP of all natural peanut butter with 1/2 banana sliced on top
  • 5-6 egg whites with salsa
  • 1-2 cups of celery with 1-2 TBSP of all natural peanut butter
  • 2 cups of cubed watermelon with one serving of cashews 
  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese with 1/2 cup berries
  • cheese stick and one small apple
  • an orange and 3 cups of skinny pop popcorn (find at Sams)
  • 1 slice of cinnamon raisin ezekiel bread (found in freezer section) toasted with 1 tbsp. peanut butter and 1/2 a banana
  • 2 stalk of celery 1-2 TBSP peanut butter- crunchy and good! 
  • 1 cup cucumber slices and 14 almonds- you can find cocoa almonds and cinnamon almonds! They are delicious and taste like a treat! They are EMERALD brand! Try them, you'll be hooked!
  • 2 hard boiled eggs with 1 cup of sliced strawberries
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats (measured before cooking) with a handful of blueberries- I eat this for breakfast and for snacks! I love it! Play around with your oatmeal, it can be made so many different ways!
  • Dry- roasted Edamame- If you use ¼ cup, it is only 130 calories, 14 grams of protein and makes a delicious snack. Or try them raw!
  • Hard boiled eggs! So easy and they are grab and go! Make a bunch on Sundays so you have them all week!


This recipe is on the menu for tonight!!  I made it once before and we LOVED it!  I'm talking delicious.  My husband is the type of guy who will eat whatever I cook, but if he doesn't like it he's going to tell me about it!  But with this recipe, he and the kids gobbled it up and asked for it again.  So, here we are!  I'm making it again and sharing it with all of you!  I really focus on eating lean meats.  I am always trying to find new recipes to satisfy us since we eat a ton of chicken and turkey.  So, this takes the cake!  

Best part.. IT IS SO EASY TO MAKE!!  Seriously!! 6 Ingredients! BAM! It's simple.  I will be pairing it with some baked asparagus and quinoa! (And for those of you who are like "What the HECK is quinoa?!!"--- I used to be the same way! Had NO IDEA how to even say the word, let alone where to find it!)  But it's usually in the organic section of your grocery store (at least it is at mine) OR you can find it at Sam's Club or Costco for the best deal!


  • Turkey Breast Cutlets- I use 4.
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes- low sodium
  • 1 medium size onion- chop it up very fine. I use my food processor for it.
  • Garlic powder
  • Dried basil
  • 1/3 cup mozzarella cheese

  • You will need to grease a 9x13 casserole dish and put the turkey cutlets along the bottom of it. Sprinkle some basil and garlic powder on the meat and then pour the can of tomatoes over the top, then put the onions on top of that and lastly, sprinkle with cheese!!
  • COVER it with foil and bake at 400 degrees for 45 minutes!! 
  • ENJOY!
