I'm so happy it Friday!!! I live for the weekends; I love having my children home and spending quality time as a family. I also enjoy cooking and baking for my family and on the weekends I make sure I have plenty of delicious foods on hand and prepared for a fun weekend...

Today I prepared a family favorite, taco salad with chicken made in the Crockpot. It's delicious and highly nutritious; it's high in protein (which is a must), fiber, flavor, veggies, vitamins and minerals. And best of all ~ it's so easy to do!

Carol Whitaker's Low-Fat Chicken Mexican Salad

1 can black beans (low sodium)
1- 2 16 oz jar of your favorite salsa, plus extra
16 oz of fat-free cream cheese
3/4 cup sweet white corn
1 Tsp fresh cilantro
salt & pepper to taste (sea salt) optional
6 chicken breast (with all fat cut off)

Place ingredients in a Crockpot on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours, mix well every few hours.

2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped

1/2 avocado (optional)
1/2 cup fat free sour cream (optional)
extra salsa
1 medium tomatoe chopped
1/2 cup low-fat or fat-free cheese grated (optional)
Tortilla strips: Use whole grain low-carb tortillas cut into strips, spray with EVOO or cooking spray & sprinkle with sea salt if desired, broil for about 5 minutes and flip to other side, bake until browned.

Place lettuce in bowl, scoop delicious chicken mixture over salad, top with desired garnish. This meal is not only delicious but it's comforting on a cold winter's evening and it smells yummy!  Enjoy!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend... Liv Fit, Train Hard & Liv Happy! =)

It’s empowering to know that we can literally alter our life experiences & physique by tapping into the power of your mind.  By having thoughts and feelings that are positive, the mind will be able to create the world of your dreams in great detail.
Your thoughts are like a magnet, a simple thought will have a weak magnetic power just like a small magnet does. A powerful emotion such as joy or fear will have a much greater magnetic pull, thus it will magnetize more of what you are feeling into your life.
Our thoughts are magnetic on every level, that is why “like always attracts like”, it’s a universal law—the Law of Attraction. Being mindful of your thoughts through the power of prayer, visualization, mediation, goal setting and affirmations you will …

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Paleo Low Carb Protein Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

I absolutely LOVE this time of year! I relish the smell of fall in the air and joy of baking delicious fall desserts for my family. I enjoy baking traditional recipes for my family, however, I don't eat sugar nor do I eat wheat or high carb flours. 
Sugar and high carbs only cause weight gain and inflammation in the body, which is why I eat a clean diet free of trans fats, processed foods, sugars and high carbs.  Protein is also a high priority in my diet, I incorporate protein into my recipes when fitting. I use whey protein isolate in all my baked recipes. 
And for good reason, protein keeps blood sugar level and aids in maintaining muscle mass, which is a must for me to keep my lean physique. So needless to say, I make up a lot of low carb recipes to suite my diet and to continue to have fun baking for my family and friends.
