Who has set (and is still excited for) their big goals for themselves in 2016? I’m sure you’ve seen the “this is my year” posts on social media, but as corny as it sounds, it is MY year! I’m going to accomplish my fitness goals and continue to fight the mental battle and self doubt that comes with pushing your body physically. The reason for not being able to stick to a plan before was because of poor mindset, and feeling like I couldn’t do it for much longer. But guys, its ALL about mindset! If you think you can you can, if you think you can’t, you’re right about that too.
I’ve been eating very clean since the beginning of the year and not even two weeks into it I’m FREAKING OUT and thinking thoughts like, I can’t do this, this is so hard, its been a whole day and I can’t even see a difference (seriously, I think these things)! But lets just regroup and remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither will my six pack be. #MentalGoals
So I’m going to give my new meal plan a solid four weeks before I go jumping ship, w e’ve totally got this! To reach my goal of seeing my six pack, I’ve teamed up with Veggie Lisa for part two of our five clean breakfast ideas to keep you on track with your New Years resolutions, or just life resolutions. I’ve been trying to eat more proteins, I feel like I reach for eggs at least twice a day. They are easy to make, filling and also packed with lots of protein. So here’s a fun variation on the traditional scramled egg.Herbed Tomato and Cottage Cheese Scramble
- 5 cherry heirloom tomatoes cut in half
- 3 TBSP low fat cottage cheese
- 3 eggs (1 whole and 2 egg whites)
- Coconut Oil
- Fresh Basil
- Salt and Pepper
1. Place a small amount of coconut oil in frying pan to coat. Add tomatoes and sauté on medium high heat for 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add in minced basil and cook for one minute longer.
2. Remove tomatoes from pan. Wipe out pan with paper towel and add another small dab of coconut oil to coat. Beat eggs and pour into pan. Stir eggs to avoid browning. Add cottage cheese when eggs are still a bit runny but close to being done. Add salt and pepper if desired.
3. Place eggs and cottage cheese mixture on plate. Top with tomatoes and basil.
What healthy way do you make your eggs?
