Recipe: Low Carb, Low Fat General Tso’s Turkey


Gen Tso’s Ground Turkey

Ingredients:

3lbs ground turkey 

2 red peppers (any color)

1 bag riced Cauliflower 

Mushrooms (I used fresh baby Bella’s this time)

Olive oil 

1/4 cup Braggs liquid aminos 


1/2 cup rice vinegar (no sodium no sugar added) 


1 spice packet of Gen Tsos chicken 


Meat seasoning optional: 

Cayenne pepper

Black pepper 

Chipotle pepper

And I topped it with jalepeno pepper flakes 

Directions:

Pour olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan a little extra is ok! 

Brown the meat and season it then drain offf the excess oil into the original container and throw out! Don’t clog your sink drain! 

Then add the remaining ingredients and stir thouroughly! 

Cover and cook on 5 for 10mins 

Add the jalepeno flakes garnish 

Remove from heat and allow to cool a little and then enjoy! It’s that easy! 


For the authentic Asian feel you can top with hot sauce and drizzle sirarcha mayo! 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!  


Recipe: Low carb, low fat, Taco Turkey Sola

This is a recipe given to me from female bodybuilder Women’s Physique competitor Caridad Sola! 


Ingredients: 

Olive oil 

3lbs ground turkey 

1 bag of Riced Cauliflower 

2 red bell peppers (any color will do)

1 packet of 30% less taco seasoning 

1 8oz can of tomato sauce 

Optional: 

Mushrooms

I added: 

Cayenne pepper 

Chipotle pepper 

Black pepper


My store wanted to charge $5.95 for riced cauliflower and this bag of diced up was $2.99 so I went with the better buy! 




You can go fresh mushrooms, I used can because they last longer and I will have them on hand. Make sure you buy the no sodium added! 

Directions:
Chop up peppers and mushrooms if you have to and set aside. 

Pour olive oil into a deep pan to cover the bottom, don’t worry if you pour too much the extra benefits will be good for you! 

Brown the turkey meat and pour off the extra fat back into the original container. Don’t pour it down the drain! You will eventually clog it! I cooked it on a 5 heat

Add the remaining ingredients cook on high for 10mins and then turn to 2 and simmer for 20mins. 

At first it will look like there isn’t enough liquid, but once you cook it, the juices from the pepper will release and add to the tomato sauce! 


Serve and enjoy! 

If you want to get shredded add this to your diet regimine and work your butt off in the gym! 

**Update** 1 hr later

I made a second batch and it came out much better! The only thing I did different was brown the meat with the additional spices. I still waited to add the taco spice packet after the meat was browned and the other ingredients were added. 


Spice it up! 

Try it you will like it! 

**Update** June 25th 2017 

This is the riced Cauliflower


This is the final dish


The riced Cauliflower is more money in my store. The benefit is in the cook time! 

10 mins on high and 5mins to simmer after the meat is brown because you don’t need the extra time to make the cauliflower bits to get soft. The riced Cauliflower cooks really fast. The extra 5 mins is to make sure the peppers are cooked and the juices released. 

Check it out try it both ways see what you like best! You can also grab a whole head of Cauliflower and pulse it in a food processor/vitamix for the ultra money saver! If you have one. 

**Update** July 2nd this time they only had Broccoli and Cauliflower rice mix, which is great because I love both!

Ok as you guys know, I have a good relationship with Cellucor. They are one of my favorite supplement companies! 

Now on to Super HD Xtreme! This stuff is nasty! Never since stacker 2 has a supplement given me the jitters like this has! I can also tell when the pill melts in my stomach and hits my bloodstream! I cannot tolerate it for a long time on an empty stomach! If I go over an hour without eating I feel like super shit! I am also allergic to caffeine, so this thing has me itching and hives all over! Some times I need a benedryl! Well; by a benedryl I mean 4 lol! I am currently 285lbs. On my way to 240! 

Be careful with this supplement and do what the directions say! DO NOT EXCEED 2 pills a day! I have only been using one pill and one regular Super Hd in the afternoon. I have seriously been afraid to have 2. 
That being said. Yesterday I got a new Nutrition coach: Leon Wong! 

  
He said I need to eat 5 meals a day! So; I will be eating right after my dose in order to fit in 5 meals! 

This guy is awesome! And he has a Heart of Gold! He really truly cares about his clients! I have only spoken to him a few times as I was just introduced to him, but I can tell right away! 

I can’t wait to see what the next few months brings! 


Supplement Review: Trimfit water with Trisynex

  TRIMFIT IS THE FUTURE OF FUNCTIONAL BEVERAGES. A CATEGORY CREATOR.
All natural weight loss water clinically
proven to help people:

LOSE WEIGHT

LOWER BODY FAT

BUILD LEAN MUSCLE

TRIMFIT is a category-creating functional beverage containing a proprietary active ingredient that is patented and clinically proven to safely help people lose weight and lower body fat while building lean muscle. While diet colas and other zero calorie flavored waters are targeting those who are simply looking to avoid extra calories and weight gain, TrimFit is the only beverage that helps people lose weight. With the obesity epidemic affecting millions of Americans, the need for a true functional weight loss beverage couldn’t be greater.
UNIQUE FORMULATION

TrimFit is the only bevereage in the world containing the patented ingredient Trisynex. TrimFit’s formulation is:

ALL NATURAL

SUGAR-FREE

STIMULANT-FREE

GRAS CERTIFIED

5 CALORIES IN EACH 8OZ. SERVING

HOW IT WORKS

Trisynex naturally adjusts your “fuel gauge” hormone leptin and a “fat-burning” hormone called adiponectin. These two harmones elevate your fat-burning potential so you stay satisfied (less hungry), lose body fat, and build lean muscle. While results may vary, TrimFit, with a balanced diet and exercise program can help you achieve and maintain healthy weight levels and a toned body shape. 

THE TRIMFIT WAY

Our consumer marketing strategy is designed to drive awareness and trial by introducing TrimFit’s all natural, healthy approach to weight loss. 

 trisynex-featuresIn an eight week clinical trial at the prestigious University of Connecticut Human Performance Laboratory, the average weight lost among those consuming Trisynex was 21 lbs – 10.5% of their starting weight and 17% loss in Body Fat.

The clinical claims are as follows:

Significantly reduces body fat and body weight

Significantly reduces hip, waist and thigh circumference

Modulates the key “fat” hormones, Leptin and Adiponectin

Increases lean muscle

Increases energy

7 years of research and development at the University of Minnesota
US patent covering 29 structure function claims

Additional study at the Pennington Biomedical Research Lab

-revbrandsinc.com

This has a promising ingredient profile! That was the first thing that caught my eye! 

  

That label above is not what is on my water! Did they improve the ingredients? 

  
On the one bottle it says vegetable and fruit juice for color and on this one they add a bunch of vegetables and fruits. Yet it is still less than 1% 

This is what I hate to say: exactly what Michelle Obama is talking about! The 1st label is accurate! Fruit juice for color. Less than 1% means it will give you no benefits! 

However the new label lists them all out as they are in there and tricking you to believe they are benefiting you! 

You look at the label and say: Wow a sports water with spinach, carrot, beet, shiitake mushroom! Nice! But then if you pay attention (key word if) you see it is less than 1%! 

Not cool! But does the Trisynex really work? Stay tuned! 

I actually didn’t see the Erythritol when I first looked at the label! But I certainly tasted it! Yuk! 

**Update** April 4th 2016

Check this coolness out! I was having trouble finding the product. The gas station I typically get it at $2/bottle is out of stock. I wrote the company and they wrote back: you can save money and buy on Groupon. The offer was removed from Groupon and I wrote back telling them that. What happened next? The CEO called me directly telling me he will honor the price and Mailout the cases and I can send in a check after I receive them. How cool is that?? That’s awesome! 

**Update** April 28th 2016

I see a big difference in belly fat! I have gone through 3 cases of 12 and I have been having 2 drinks a day. 1 at 6am on an empty stomach and one at 430pm with a meal. 

I have been doing a low carb meal for 3 weeks and 1hr of cardio a day, but my weight hasn’t moved much. I am still 287-288. My arms are massive right now (on a low carb diet that is awesome) usually I’m flat after a while. 

**Update** May 5th 2016

I have now finished 4 cases 2 drinks a day! I had a carbohydrate refeed day and any weight lost is now back and my stomach is puffy. That tells me the loss was only water weight and the product doesn’t work to reduce fat! I am seriously disappointed! I am going to have to call this myth busted! (I miss myth busters)! 


Supplement Review: Quest Protein Chips

IMG_0205.JPG
CHIPSAREN’T WHAT THEY USED TO BEChips have always been delicious. No argument there. But the carb-loaded snacks have always been reserved for cheat days or impulsive munching… until now.With 21 grams of high-quality protein per bag, Quest Protein Chips are the ONLY chips you can enjoy at the gym, on-the-go, or as an anytime snack completely guilt-free.In fact, guilt has nothing to do with it. Every bold, mouthwatering flavor has only 5g total carbs and zero junk ingredients, so eat the whole bag!

COMPARE TO OTHER PROTEIN SOURCES
A PERFECT
CRUNCH
Ingredients:
Protein Blend (Milk Protein Isolate, Whey Protein Isolate), Dried Potatoes, Corn Starch, High Oleic Sunflower Oil. Contains less than 2% of the following: Sea Salt, Calcium Carbonate, Natural Flavors.

Sea Salt:
Savor the guilt free crunch of fresh sea salt sprinkled over baked, protein-chip goodness with 21g of healthy protein and only 5g total carbs per bag.

BBQ:
Smokey, backyard-BBQ flavor on a baked, savory chip. Bite into bold, BBQ flavor with a whopping 21g healthy protein and only 5g total carbs per bag.

Cheddar Sour Cream:
Tangy cheddar cheese and cool sour cream blend together for a delightfully sharp flavor you’ll love!!
-questnutrition.com

These chips are amazing!! They have 21g of protein! That’s ridiculous! What’s more ridiculous is they taste nothing like a protein bar! No chalky aftertaste! Now don’t go expecting a greasy potato chip! Because you can’t have your cake and eat it too! But you can have a satisfying Carb-like snack on a low carb diet that’s power packed with protein and low carb! But tastes like its a guilty pleasure! The BBQ chips are amazing! With the cheddar 2nd and the sea salt 3rd. I am not a big fan of potato chips! I need to dip them! The flavored chips don’t need any dip! The sea salt I had with P28 protein peanut butter!

IMG_0210.JPG that was delicious and ultra power packed with protein!

Would you believe me if I told you that this dessert is very easy to make and requires no cooking? No messing around in the kitchen – just a little bit of blending and stirring, put it in the fridge and it’s done. Only 4 ingredients needed.

CHOCOLATE AND RASPBERRY CHIA PUDDING
Rating: 5

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

Ingredients:

6 Tbsp chia seeds
2 cups coconut milk beverage or any non-dairy milk
6 large squares dark chocolate (yield about 2 Tbsp melted + 4 Tbsp grated chocolate to decorate)
½ cup fresh or frozen raspberries + a few raspberries to decorate
Instructions:

In a small pot melt about 4 chocolate squares over low heat (should yield about 2 tablespoon melted chocolate). Add 1 cup of the coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk and stir until combined making sure the mixture doesn’t become too hot. Turn off the heat and let it cool to the room temperature.
In the meantime, add the raspberries and 1 cup of coconut milk beverage or your favourite non-dairy milk to a blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator.
Once the chocolate mixture is cool, pour it into a jar or a glass container and add 3 tablespoons of the chia seeds. Mix well until all the chia seeds are covered with the liquid. Cover with a tight lid and place in the refrigerator. Keep the chia seeds in the fridge over night or for at least 8 hours.
Once ready to prepare the pudding, check the consistency of the chocolate chia. If you find it too thick add 2 or 3 tablespoons of the milk of your choice and mix well.
Divide the chocolate chia in half and place each half into 2 small bowls or dessert glasses. Divide the raspberry chia in half and place on top of the chocolate chia.
Grate the remaining 2 squares of the dark chocolate using a grater or shave it with a knife. To decorate the chia pudding, add about 2 tablespoons of the shaved chocolate and a few raspberries to each dessert glass.
Notes:

This dessert keeps well in the fridge for up to 10 hours. This recipe makes 2 puddings about 1 cup each. You can also make 4 mini-puddings about 1/2 cup each.
-mariaushakova.com

This looks delicious and amazing! I would add protein powder! To make it protein rich Raspberry Chocolate Chia Pudding!

I will definitely try this!

The best part about not being vegan is it can take this delicious recipe and add any protein I want! Do I want a quick uptake? Then I’ll use whey. Do I want a slow uptake? I’ll use casein. Do I want to keep it vegan? I can use plant/rice/hemp protein. Do I want to keep it organic grass fed? Then I’ll use grass fed organic whey etc…

The recipe is open to your lifestyle!


Supplement Review: Muscletech Platinum Pure CLA Powder *

20140620-062548-23148970.jpg
ULTRA-PURE CLA POWDER
Platinum Pure CLA Powder is an advanced and completely tasteless powder that mixes instantly in any shake – you can even drink it on its own. Researchers believe CLA works by down-regulating the TNF-alpha catabolic signaling molecule in muscle, thereby preventing your body from destroying lean muscle mass.
CLA has been clinically studied and shown to support muscle growth. In one clinical study, subjects taking 5g of CLA per day built more muscle than those using a placebo (2.8 lbs. vs 0.4 lbs.) in just 7 weeks. In the same study, resistance-trained male subjects significantly increased their bench press.

1060MG PURE CLA
100 SERVINGS

THE PLATINUM PURE CLA POWDER ADVANTAGE
Our unique isolation process has created a completely tasteless, ultra-pure CLA powder that easily mixes in any shake – or drink it on its own for the CLA boost you need to build the body you want! Platinum Pure CLA Powder starts by using only the highest quality filtered conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). We then use a multi-phase process that concentrates the CLA molecules. Platinum Pure CLA Powder is completely free of stimulants, making it an excellent addition to your musclebuilding stack.
HOW TO TAKE PLATINUM PURE CLA POWDER
Mix 1 serving (1 scoop) with 4 to 6 oz.of water or your favorite sports drink or protein shake, and consume 1 to 5 times daily. Do not use for more than 12 consecutive months. Read the entire label before use and follow directions provided.

20140620-061539-22539190.jpg

-Muscletech.com

No taste, mixes easily, makes your drink cloudy when you mix it .

Undetectable CLA, no pills to swallow, sounds pretty good!

Buy it and take advantage! I haven’t tried it in plain water yet, I guess I am doing that today!

Stay tuned!

-matefit.me

Ok lets start off with what’s in the package. It comes with 2 bags of loose leaf metabolic boost and 1 bag of loose leaf detox tea. It also comes with big goofy extra large obscenely sized tea bags that you can fill with the loose leaf tea. It also comes with a large quick direction card with ingredients

What I love straight off, is the opportunity to drink it either way (loose leaf or in a tea bag)

I am a tea connoisseur! I love tea! Call me a tea snob if you must lol. But I only like organic tea and I like loose leaf that I can see the blend and sometimes mix the teas to make a new creation from companies like Teavana and Mighty Tea (Mighty Tea is reviewed here on this site)

The taste isn’t bad! I’m used to drinking Oolong tea that tastes like sweat socks!
Enter Wu-Long slimming tea

20140511-104704.jpg
Not a great taste, but you do lose a little weight.

Yerba Mate on the other hand is sweet and has a pleasant taste. It cancels out the sweat sock taste of Oolong.

Do I enjoy drinking Mate Fit? No! Do I hate dread drinking it? No! It has a neutral taste for me. Meaning I can tolerate drinking it, but in not going out of my way to happily drink it, but we are not drinking it to enjoy it, we are drinking it for its metabolic boost!

Drinking more tea is not going to hurt! So; since it is loose leaf, you can add a teaspoon if your favorite loose leaf tea to the bag since it is obscenely large!

20140511-105747.jpg
Something you can’t do with other repackaged tea (such as Tiny Tea). Or you can always have a second cup of tea (your favorite) after you drink the Mate Fit.

I typically drink 5 cups of tea daily when on a cutting diet.

I can’t wait to try the Detox tea tonight!!

Stay tuned for more! The most important part… Does it work?

Trying my second cup with a tsp of Mighty Leaf Coco Chai

20140511-132828.jpg

20140511-132838.jpg
Much better! Tastes amazing and I get the benefit of both mixtures!

The perfect way to enjoy your Teatox without adding calories to the mix such as Honey and Lemon Juice (suggested sweetener in the directions)

It says use 1tbsp that’s an awfully large amount of tea to use per cup! My mighty leaf says use 1tsp per serving as does Teavana! What I am going to attempt is trying to make a second cup from the tea bag and I will still use 2tbsps daily as directed, but I will see if I can get 4 cups instead of 2, by drinking each tbsp twice. The 1st cup being a super powerful dose and the second being an additional stabilizing dose. That way I can have it every 2 hours till ride till lunch time.

**Update** May 12th 2014
Morning after the Detox tea first dose: wasn’t bad, I didn’t experience any harsh affects. No diarrhea, no excessive peeing. It wasn’t bad at all. My stomach does look flatter since the weekend. I also didn’t use my wheel yet (Ab Carver Pro).

**Update** May 13th 2014
Just to be clear, I add a tsp of high grade loose leaf tea to the metabolism boost (day tea) I don’t add anything to the detox (night tea)

**Update** May 15th 2014
My waist was measured today at 37″ and I’m 6′ 255lbs not bad! I want to get to 34″ and 235lbs can I do it with the the help of Mate Fit in the beginning of my cut? Will Shredz help me reach my goal? My stomach does seen flatter since using the Mate Fit! I’m liking it! Taking my 4th cup at 8pm and my nighttime cleanse at 10 or 12 depending what time I get sleepy! Will I reach my goal?

Stay tuned!

**Update** May 21st 2014
This week I am mixing it up!

It’s my belief that the directions are too excessive! Meaning you are severely wasting tea!

You can easily make this more than a 28day detox. However; you won’t have enough handy bags!

All loose leaf tea calls for 1tsp! Mate fit says 1 tbsp that’s 3 times the amount!

Today I am trying 1tsp and for my 2nd cup I will be having the Teatox challenge part 2 coming soon! One prepackaged tea bag of Tiny Tea. Then I will have my 2nd tsp of Mate fit followed by a final cup of Tiny Tea.

Lets see how this works!

2 Teatoxes blended as one, hand in hand in detox bliss 😝

Results:
One tsp had the same potency as 1tbsp! It tastes exactly the same as I suspected!

The verdict is in: do not waste your Mate Fit! Only use 1tsp and make it last 3 times as long! If you buy a 28day teatox from then use it the same way and you will have enough for 3 full 28day Teatoxes! Do not do them back to back! Follow the downtime instructions!

I tried Wu-Yi tea basically overpriced oolong tea. That’s the same thing with Wu-Long tea. They both taste like steeped sweat socks! Mate Fit contains Oolong but it also has Yerba Mate which is sweeter and other ingredients. It tastes pretty good, but remember above, I add high grade loose leaf from Mighty Tea or Teavana to spice it up!

I am not sure about this stuff!! It tastes exactly like Re-body SafSlim (reviewed here on this site) SafSlim didn’t work! Check out the review for more details! It even comes in the same bottle. It is Fish oil and not Safflower oil, so it might be better. However; it is extra creamy and sickening sweet! But absolutely not even a hint of a fishy taste!

In fact; I just threw out the expired unused remainder of my SafSlim.

Stay tuned for a performance review!
