Friday’s Food and Fitness: A Little of This and A Little of That

Hi all!  Happy Friday!  Today I’m guest posting on Melissa@ValentineRD’s Blog!!  Melissa is starting her own private nutrition practice and in conjunction with this endeavor, she has started a Friday series called Friday’s Featured Female.  So head on over there and see what I had to say! 

So for this Friday’s Food and Fitness, I’ve got a little of this and a little of that going on.  So buckle up, here we go!

Food and Fitness Collage

FOOD

Did you all see my groceries from Wednesday’s post?  I guess I gave the impression that it was my grocery list.  It’s actually a screenshot of my grocery order from this week.  I order my groceries online so I have all my receipts online.  I wish my grocery list was that organized!  They do have a function that allows you to re-order groceries from your previous orders, so I guess in a way it could be considered my list.

So could you tell what I made this week from my receipt?  I’ll give you a hint, it rhymes with Philly and contains a bird we are all pretty thankful for.

turkey chili

Yep, turkey chili!  I love a great bowl of piping hot, spicy turkey chili.  I use fire roasted canned tomatoes, kidney beans, red pepper, jalapenos and lean ground turkey to make my recipe.  Yum!

The Hubs came home from Mexico late Wednesday night (or early Thursday morning) so I decided to make one of his favorites for dinner, mini veggie pizzas.  Ok, I lied.  His favorite is mini pepperoni pizzas but I said no to all the sodium and made him eat veggies instead!  The secret is to use naan bread crusts.  They are super delicious and the pizza is ready in ten minutes flat.  I used mushrooms, onions, garlic, eggplant and zucchini.  I like my pizza spicy so I add red pepper flakes.  Delicious!

Mini pizza

Because this was a busy week, I tried out these skillet meals from Bertolli.  They were good and really easy to make.  I actually preferred the chicken parm meal (not pictured).  I would definitely buy these again for nights when I’m too busy to worry about cooking.

FITNESS

On the fitness menus this week:

Turbo Fire…after a short hiatus I’m back on these DVDs!  Love them.  Does anyone else think Chalene Johnson is unbelievably happy and motivating without being annoying?  That’s a tough balance to strike!

Turbo Fire 1

Flywheel.  This is by far my favorite cycling studio.  I love the competition of competing against other riders on the torqboard.  And the type-A in me appreciates the fact that I can actually see my torw (resistance) and RPMs on the screen attached to my bike.  It really prevent me from slacking off!

These are my stats from last class.  Not too bad but not my very best.

– I’ve also been doing the Tone It Up Beach Babe 2 DVD.  I’ll have a review for you soon so check back soon!

Readers, tell me about your workouts this week.  How do you make your chili?  Have you ever ordered your groceries online?

    Add cocoa to your chili! It’a amazing. I like my pizza spicy too. One time I was at Ray’s Pizza in the east village (it was 4:00 am gah) and I was trying to pour out the chili flakes and the top came off and they spilled all over my pizza. I ate it anyway. The pizza guys were super impressed haha

    Girl, I am the total opposite. I hate spicy chili! I can barely handle the mild versions (such a baby). I had some great workouts this week. My fav was my Jillian Michaels Body Shred class at the gym! I love it! But I’m sad they only offer it once a week!

    I’ve never heard of turkey chili, sounds interesting. I love piand the more and more I read your blog, I’m inspired to cook. My workouts aren’t diverse but the new release of BODYCOMBAT that I’ve been teaching this week is fierce!

    I’ve never ordered groceries online… but it seems like a neat idea!! Also, love that you made a mini pizza on naan! What a great idea! 🙂

    I have not ordered my groceries online but a couple of you have mentioned it so now I’m wondering if I shouldn’t look into it. It would certainly be a time saver, I just assumed it would be much more expensive.

    I haven’t don’t done any of Chalene’s workouts but I always hear wonderful things about them.

    Never done cycling but I really do like the competition idea here. I’d just have to go practice someplace else first. 🙂

    I love making mini pizzas too! A few times lately I’ve made English muffin pizzas, and they’re so easy and yummy. I’ve never ordered my groceries online…How does that work, do you get them delivered to your place or do you pick them up at the store?

    Homemade mini pizzas are one of our faves too! I love them on portobello mushrooms or tortillas. Might have to give naan bread a shot!
