Category: Recipes    

For those of you who follow me on Instagram (@missads1981) or on Facebook (facebook.com/jerseygirltalk) I posted my meal prep from this weekend and quite a few of you asked what I made and if I could write out what each of the items was on my list. Of course I love to share with you all so this post is just a quick run through on what I picked up at the grocery store and what I prepped for the next few days. As always the goal is to make staying on track easy so meal prepping helps me to stick t ...

Healthy Meal Prep Ideas to Pack for the Day

Category: Fitness     Recipes    

As many of you know from reading my blog I am a HUGE advocate of meal prepping. I don’t think I would be able to stick to any kind of routine with what I eat on a daily basis if I wasn’t planning and preparing for what I am going to eat daily. With a hectic work schedule that leaves me little to no time to go out for lunch or snacks, I make sure to pack all of my meals with me in the morning. This has been a practice of mine for over five years now and has been a big part of my succes ...

Category: Primary Menu     Fitness     Recipes    

Trying to stick to your macros and daily calories can be challenging when you are pressed for time. Whether you work a full time job with a crazy commute, are juggling the house and kids or are in school and bouncing from class to class, let’s face it – sometimes it’s easier to just grab something on the go from the vending machine or local convenience store. While it does take more work and time to pack and prepare your meals I have to say that doing so has kept me on ...

One of the best meats you can consume is grass fed organic ground beef – so this recipe includes this as well as lots of healthy ingredients and no bread crumbs!

Sunday is my favorite day to make dinner, not only because I grew up in an Italian family that does Sunday dinner (actually it is around 2pm in the afternoon, but still considered “dinner”) and they do it BIG, but because it is a day when I actually have a lot of time to go to shop for specific ingredients and take as long as I need in the kitchen. For the last week I have been plotting and planning to make chicken rollantini, which ...

Summer Meals that can be made in less than 10 minutes

When it comes to the summer time I love all things that can be made and eaten cold. When it is really warm out, like it is now in New Jersey, I feel like I could live on salads so what I like to do is test out new ones and add a ton of fresh, raw ingredients. The other day I was browsing on Instagram and saw a lump crab meat salad put inside an avocado, and it got me all excited to go to the store to bu ...

A healthy recipe for chicken quesadillas

One of my all time favorite things to order when I go to a diner or get diner food at the end of a long night out was always chicken quesadillas. The one thing that I always hated about them, was the wrap was always so soggy from all the grease and oil they were made in. Now I love to make these at home with all organic and natural ingredients and make them in a way that the wrap is so crispy and using no oil (the only oil used is a ...

A quick breakfast to fuel your morning - Ezekiel Toast, Almond Butter and Coffee Shake

Category: Recipes    

Getting out of the house on time while still making a decently healthy and nutritious breakfast is always a challenge. I am always going a mile a minute in the morning so I have to be able to make something quick that I can also eat on the go if I need to. Recently since I have not been able to list heavy (an injury I have been dealing with for the last 2 months with inflammation and pain in my sternum and rib cage) I keep my morning meal consistent. I am a huge fan of Ezekiel bread, which many p ...
