Lazy Man's Turkey Patties

Do you hate cooking prep and cooking for long hours to keep those abs in top shape?
Do you detest doing dishes from all the cooking you do to stay in shape!
Check this out....the Lazy Man's Turkey Patties in 5min! With NO dishes! 
Buy yourself some extra lean ground turkey.
Bonus points if your get it on sale (makes my fiancée happy)

Slice open the package and remove the under mats below the turkey (yeah I know what you are thinking, "he is going to use this as his bowl...dam that is smarts!")
Then add any spices you want.
I used:
Seasoning salt (no MSG)
Sea salt
Italian Seasoning 

Now get those hands dirty and mix up that turkey and say to yourself, "man this is easy, anyone can do this!".
You could take this to a new level and ask someone a favour in your house to make your patties. (those are Jedi skills) 

Make the patty size you need.
If you are on a guided Nutrition Prescription from me or another coach/program you will know the right weight or specific portion size for your individualized plan.
Now slap those badboys in a pan and cook them up. A couple minutes on either side will do on medium high heat.

You have now just made enough quality protein for three of your daily meals in 5minutes!
PLUS! You do not have to wash a bowl or measuring cups, spoons, plates, you only need to wash the frying pan! Or be really lazy and leave the pan on the stove and wash it later! 

Anyone can save time and do this!
ENJOY the Lazy Man's Turkey Patties!

A90 Success TIP #3

A90 Success TIP #3
Make The Change :-)
Looking for some inches off your waist line, hips and upper thighs?
:-) Change your grains to greens! 
~ One of the biggest areas I see clients have is trouble losing inches off the above areas. One of
 the major faults is due to a large intake of the easy to eat grains like; bread, pasta, cereals, bagels, muffins and the like.
If you were to slowly make the change from grains to greens, inches will start to come off when in the A90 program:-)
Breakfast (The Regular)
2 slices whole wheat bread
1tbsp cream
2 sugar
2 tbsp jam
8g protein
87g carbs
11g fat

Breakfast = (The Change)
1 egg + 1/2 cup egg whites
2 cups mixed chopped veggies (change for 1 slice)
1 handful spinach (change for the other slice)
1/2 cup blueberries
sprinkle some crushed almonds on top
Add any spices you want. Now mix this up and have your scramble!
Black coffee
21g protein
22g carbs
6g fat

You will have more energy, feel full but not too full 80% rule, feel more you will not crave the treats at work!

A90 Success TIP #2

A90 Success TIPS! #2
:-) Eat how the nutritional program says to eat.
:-( Skipping meals, eating well one day then not the other, drinking only protein powder or eating protein bars, eating the way a friend ate when they lost 10lbs....thes
e are all ways to not see any results!
~Those that have had success in the A90 program did exactly what the A90 program instructed them to do to the letter. Those who wonder from the plan to do their own "self directed" plan fall off the wagon again and again.
WHY? "CLARITY IS POWER" Those that have clarity in what they want need not search for the magic weight loss miracle because they have created the path!
A90 gives this path towards a successful transformation!
Trust the program, know what you want, go for it!

A90 Success TIP #1

A90 Success TIPS! #1
:-) Do your ESD cardio the way it says how to do it + throw in a small warm-up to get your body prepared: example 20min ESD + warm-up for 15min building up to what you are doing in the 20min ESD workout. 
:-( a large m
istake clients make is skipping the cardio or doing their own "self directed" cardio.
The A90 ESD cardio was created to elicit a fat burning response by using a specific energy system that day.
Doing your own "self directed" cardio simply put, you will not dig in and push hard enough to burn fat!
WHY? "self directed" cardio has a way out of hard work!

Busy Bee Workout/Nutrition Success

What can you commit to this week?

A lot of people have busy weeks with work and family...this is life.
This crazy schedule can get in the way and hinder larger goals.
A great way to flank the busy work week and attack it from a different a
ngle is to make a plan every Monday towards 'what you can commit to during that week'.
This Monday plan should have small weekly goals that are "behavioural based goals" like:
- I will do my HITT ESD cardio 3 x this week at 5:30am as I have made arrangements with my spouse to do so.
- Another great one is; I will eat 3 cups of veggies each day.
- And another good one is; If I do not get my exercise in that day, I will make myself a very lean dinner and snack.
These weekly based behavioural system can set you up for monthly success if you keep the Monday plan rolling and stay true to your goals.
Those who are super busy, please do not make "outcome based goals" like:
- I will lose 5lbs this week> what happens if you do not hit this target? You will probably fall off the wagon.
Think "behavioural goals" and set yourself up for success weekly!

Stuffed Zucchini

These are CRAZY good!
Easy to pack up and make bulk:-) 
Zucchini (medium, halved lengthwise) 2
Olive oil cooking spray
Onion (finely diced) ¼ cup
Fresh garlic (minced) 1 tsp
Shitake or portobello mushrooms (small diced) ¼ cup
Tomato (finely diced) ¼ cup
Low-fat feta cheese (crumbled) ¼ cup
Pecans (crushed) ¼ cup
Tomato sauce ½ cup

Serving Size
Serves 1 large or 2 small.
Preparation Time
5 min. Preparation Time
10 min. Cooking Time
This zucchini recipe blends together a number of potent flavors like feta cheese, shitake mushrooms, and pecans to create an awesome, nutrient-packed side dish that goes great with steamed fish. In addition to the taste and nutritional goodness, this recipe also looks really cool once plated. Enjoy.
Preheat the oven at 375°F. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise. Using a spoon and knife remove all the white centre flesh (do not discard the skin or flesh). If the green skin breaks don’t worry. Preheat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Lightly coat with spray and add the white zucchini flesh, onion, garlic and mushrooms. Sauté until onions are lightly browned and liquids have evaporated. Then remove from heat. Add tomato, feta cheese and pecans to the pan. Stuff the zucchini peel with the heated mixture. Reform the peel around the stuffing. Add to a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and serve with warm tomato sauce. Serves 1 large or 2 small.
Side Dish that works well with this (you will need a quality "eyes" protein source for this)
