CALLING ALL SOON-TO-BE BRIDES AND POST-HONEYMOON BRIDES!

I have a fun announcement to make…

It has been such a wonderful experience helping people get fit and healthy this summer in all of the amazing SUMMER SHREDS… well, it’s time to announce this year’s NHS BRIDAL SHRED committed to getting ‘shredded’ before “tying the knot” or needing a little detox from their amazing wedding festivities!

How fun would it be to be encouraged by other women that have the same goals as you do?!? I can’t wait to HELP these ladies to feel super confident as they either walk down the aisle ready to say “I do” or are returning to a new way of life as a married women!

CHECK OUT the details below and SIGN UP TODAY! This will go fast, so don’t miss your chance!!

 

The goal is 35 workouts in 48 days… and it will be challenging. The workouts are 20-45 minutes long and who doesn’t have that kind of time to workout each day?! The best part about this is you can do it from your home! Yes, you read it correctly… 35 workouts in 48 days. The “BRIDAL SHRED” will start on Sunday, August 10th and end Saturday, September 20th.

WORKOUTS:

Each week I will be posting and emailing a document of 5 workouts so you can plan your week accordingly. The workouts are intense, but there are always modifications. These workouts are always different so you will never get bored!

I will also be including a Running Plan in the workout schedule to do twice a week for those of you who would like to add some running to the mix!

MEAL PLAN:

I am encouraging you to have one cheat day a week (your choice) that you can enjoy sweets or an adult beverage (all in moderation, of course). That means six days to eat as clean and as balanced as possible; sticking to six small meals a day that incorporate a protein, complex carb and fat. I will also be sending you out a Meal Plan to stick to each week on Saturday mornings, as well as a BRIDAL SHRED specific shopping list! This will include vegetarian options as well! Obviously everyone’s needs are different, so I will be encouraging everyone to get onto MyFitnessPal and log their daily eats and workouts to meet their daily recommended number of calories to help them with their goals.

FACEBOOK GROUP: (optional)

I have created a secret Facebook Group for everyone in the BRIDAL SHRED to be on so that we can all encourage each other and share some motivation. If you don’t have a Facebook, you will need to let me know so I can email you all of the weekly documents.

YOUR PERSONAL TRAINER – ME:

The best part is, I will be at your service through the whole BRIDAL SHRED. If you need some advice about food, a workout move, or anything else… I am here for you!

- A Facebook account is highly recommended (but not mandatory) so you can access the private NHS Summer Shred Group. However, everything will be posted & emailed weekly
- Dumbbells or Kettlebells (Ranging from 5-15lbs)
- Box Jump or Step (or a place in the house that you can use as a Step-Up)
- Jump Rope
- Timer (Tabata Timer is a plus)
- Occasional Access to an Open Space or Track
- Yoga Mat

The cost is only $40!! That’s less then a $2 a workout! Couldn’t think of a better way to get ready for all of the NEW-NESS that you are preparing for!

Kale and Quinoa Stir-Fry

by Bobbi from nhershoes on July 28, 2014 · 1 comment

in Dinner,Food,Garden,Recipes

Our garden this summer has really taken off! I am so blessed to have married a man who loves to grow things for me, because I have the brownest thumb ever! I am pretty sure this has to be the most KALE we have ever grown. I am super excited that I get to go outside every morning and pick my very own kale for my smoothies. We also give a lot of it away because there is no way we could store it all. Some friends have given me some really great ideas like blending the kale up and storing it in ice-cube trays for smoothies and soups.

In order to make sure that I am eating kale and veggies from the garden as much as possible,  I really make sure to make my meal plan around what is growing. I love that RJ, loves kale (well blended in smoothies) because between the two of us we have put a little dent in it. :) This week I will be making green monsters everyday, kale salads, kale chips, kale pesto, kale and white bean soup, kale omelets, and kale egg casserole.

I started the KALE KICK OFF with a yummy Kale and Quinoa Stir-Fry that I literally had everything already on hand for. I took Spicy Kale and Coconut Stir Fry from Cookie and Cake and mixed it up a bit. It was so simple and tasted amazing the only thing I regretted was not making more!

kaleandquinostirfry

 

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 tbsp. Coconut Oil
  • 2 Eggs (beaten with a dash of salt)
  • 2 cloves Garlic large (pressed or minced)
  • ½ Onion
  • 1 bunch kale medium (ribs removed and leaves finely shredded)
  • ¼ tsp. Fine Grain Sea Salt
  • 2 c. Cooked Quinoa
  • 2 tsp. Reduced-Sodium Tamari or Soy Sauce
  • 1 Lime (halved)
  • Fresh Cilantro (for garnish)
  • Optional:
    • 1. c. Vegetables such as bell pepper, carrot, or Brussel sprouts (thinly sliced)
    • 2 tsp. Chili Garlic Sauce or Sriracha
    • Red Pepper Flakes (for garnish)
INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Heat a large (12-in. or wider) wok, cast iron skillet, or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot enough that a drop of water sizzles on contact, add 1 tsp. of oil. Pour in the eggs and cook, stirring occasionally, until the eggs are scrambled and lightly set. Take the eggs out and put aside for a moment.
  2. Add one tbsp. of oil to the pan and add the garlic, onions, and optional additional vegetables. Cook while stirring for 30 seconds or longer, until fragrant or until the vegetables are tender. Add the kale and ¼ tsp. salt. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the kale is wilted and tender, which will just take a couple of minutes. Transfer the contents of the pan to the bowl of eggs.
  3. Add the remaining two tsp. of oil to the pan. Add the quinoa to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until the quinoa is hot (approx. 3 minutes).
  4. Pour the contents of the bowl back into the pan. Add 2 tsp. of tamari (or soy sauce) and hot sauce (chili garlic sauce or sriracha). Stir to combine, then transfer the contents to serving plates or back to the bowl. Squeeze the juice of ½ of a lime over the dish. Garnish with a sprinkling of torn cilantro leaves and wedges of lime, with jars of chili garlic sauce, sriracha, and/or red pepper flakes on the side.

I can’t wait to share more recipes with you soon!

Question: What is your favorite thing to make with kale?
