Happy Friday friends! The marinade challenge starts this weekend and I can’t wait to see member photos of all their marinades being prepped! Subscribers will prep all eight marinades which will be included on their weekly meal plan for 8 weeks! It’s a pretty sweet deal, 2 hours of work for 8 meals! Here is a preview of this weeks meal plan:
PS one of my new clients just lost 5lbs in one month of following the meal plans!

Shameless self-promo plug concluded. Now onto FFFF #91!
Friday night I couldn’t stand the loud fans that were still drying out the wall from the pipe leak we had so we went to Whole Foods for dinner. Luckily the hot bar has all the ingredients listed for every single item so I could make a choice that was compliant with my breastfeeding elimination diet. I got barbecue chicken and put it on top of a huge salad. I felt all was right in the world after that salad!
Last weekend we attempted these pizzas on a brown rice tortilla with Daiya mozzarella and uncured pepperoni. Daiya cheese is definitely the best cheese substitute out there, it melts really well compared to any other substitute! That being said we both thought the mozzarella kind of taste like cream cheese, so this was more of a cream cheese pizza. I mean, Mr. Hungry asked if I could get him a real pizza at Trader Joe’s so ya I don’t know if I would make it again, but at least we tried!
For lunch most of this week I finished up the samples of Dr. Praeger’s veggie cakes and “chicken” strips with ketchup or barbecue sauce and carrots. Super easy lunch and delicious!
We are officially obsessed with Frontera steak skillet sauce! We had steak tacos and steak salad two nights which was DELICIOUS!
We also loved this meal with Thrive Market chickpea pasta, Sabatino’s paleo sausage (Costco), roasted broccoli and marinara sauce! It lasted us two days as well!
Prior to having to go dairy free for the baby, I was drinking a ton of those premade Orgain protein shakes from Costco. Since I can’t drink those anymore I was struggling to get in a protein shake after working out or just enough protein in general. Then I remembered I used to meal prep Mr. Hungry’s protein shakes all the time (see here for simple meal prep tips for beginners.)
I just added 5 cups of unsweetened original flax milk to the blender with five scoops of protein powder (currently using Health Warrior Chocolate) then divided it among five mason jars.
It worked so well Mr. Hungry asked me to make him a few as well for next week!
Fri (3/1) – Total Body Circuit Workout from Post Baby Bod
Sat (3/2)- OFF
Sun (3/3) – Tempo Cardio Workout from Post Baby Bod – I was really feeling dead during this workout but I pushed through. I could barely get above 5.7 on the speed when last week I was running at over 6.0. Meh.
Mon (3/4) – Total Body Circuit Workout from Post Baby Bod
Tues (3/5) – OFF
Wed (3/6) – 30-minute 3-mile treadmill workout from Post Baby Bod – it was 20 minutes of a steady state with a speed surge the last 10 minutes – KILLER
Thurs (3/7) – 20 minute HIIT from Post Baby Bod (I’ve noticed with HIIT workouts I can kind of entertain the baby during the rest periods so it’s easier to get those done when he is awake than other workouts.)

YESSSSSSSS I saved this one to make as soon as I can introduce nut flour back in my diet!
I want to make ALL of these!
This toy is everything to Baby K and has been since Christmas. We take it EVERYWHERE!
