👩🏻🍳 🍝 🇮🇹 Red Beet gnocchi ❤️
The recipe is very simple and ready in 20 minutes. I simply added to the traditional potato gnocchi some boiled red beets. That’s it, nothing more!
👩🏻🍳 ❤️ What you will need:
✅230 gr. boiled red beets ( brought already cooked )
✅230 gr. boiled sweet potatoes
✅1 free range egg
✅300gr almond flour + one handful for dusting
✅pinch of pink salt
✅ pinch of 🎨❤️🖌️
Boil the sweet potatoes (20min from boiling).
In a big bowl add the flour and mash the beets with a potato masher. Mash and add the sweet potatoes too.
Add the egg and a pinch of salt.
Mix together with a fork first and with your hands later to create an airy and light dough.
On a flat surface dusted with some flour, roll a long cylinder of dough and cut it in 1 inch long cylinders.
Place the gnocchi on some parchment paper, one next to the other.
Fill a large pot with water and bring it to boil.
Add one tablespoon of oil in order not to let the gnocchi stick together and drop 10/12 gnocchi into the water. Don't overcrowd (I did 10 at the time).
After 3/4 minutes the gnocchi, once cooked, will come to surface.
Remove them from the pot and place them in a bowl. Ready! 🍝 ❤️
👩🏻🍳 Buon appetito! ❤️

Not sure how any of us are still smiling after today’s workout; must’ve been Vanessa’s positive attitude that carried us through. 😂 I might be whining but deep down I love these torturous workouts. I may need reminding of that tomorrow, when I can’t wash my hair and trying to sit down results in anarchy. What are your most hated but also loved workouts?
Either food prep for one or dinner for the fam. Taco salads are my favorite go to quick meal before heading off to work! The meal pictured here is something that I made for the boy and I but I also froze 4 smaller containers like this for later meals!
Chicken: Season 3 chicken breasts with taco seasoning and a 1/4 c. Salsa then let cook on medium heat in crock pot for 4-6 hours. Pull apart chicken (it’s super tender) and section off into portioned bags/ containers.
Rice: Prepare your favorite rice as label directs but add a little EVO and Trader Joe’s cilantro lime seasoning, the juice of one fresh lime, and maybe a lol fresh cilantro if you have it. Then let cool and portion off into freezer bags or containers.
Beans&Corn: Crack open a can of organic black or Tri bean blend beans and drain out the liquid. Pour into pan and set on the stovetop over low heat. Add in 1 cup of frozen fresh corn,leftover lime juice, and 1/4 c. Diced mixed peppers. Heat for about 5 -10 minutes then cool and portion off into containers.
Chow time: Get one bag/ container of all three ingredients out of the freezer at a time and heat up in a sauté pan with some salsa for moisture. Once thoroughly heated up place all your ingredients on bed of lettuce and spinach then top it off with your favorite Mexican fixings.
(Avocado, Salsa, fresh cheese, corn chips etc.)Also side note Trader Joe’s has some amazing corn shells that go great with this blend as well.
Easy meals that are prepped and frozen give you more long lasting sustainability and stretch your pantry life when only preparing a little food for yourself at one time. This meal in particular ensures that you are getting all your veggies cooked and fresh at the same time.
Ideally you like to cook and eat all your food the same day without freezing again for optimal nutrients and digestion .... however if you are like me and very busy and just don’t have time to cook before or after work hours then meal preps are a must and as good as it gets.

Before you fix inspiration we try to solve the problem with solutions. we need to understand the root of it, which it can be 2 things.. not enough clarity in life (which I’ve had many times) and or, your burnt out on ideas, captions etc.. .
How to fix? (In my case it works)
Journal.. grab a pen and write down ideas, pre write your captions.. make sure what your righting will give the audience a reason to follow you.
And 2 vision, understand the problem and envision the solution. Once you understood the problem you envision where you wanna go.
What’s your dream.. do he narrow minded and step out of your comfort zone. You don’t grow by staying in the same spot ☕️small wins over time ☕️

✨ROASTED BUTTERNUT SQUASH✨
This roasted Butternut Squash Recipe is one of my favorites. It's so easy to make, healthy, and economical. It tastes so good - kids love it. Not only does butternut squash taste good, it's so good for you. With its nutty flavor and mildly sweet taste, it is full of vitamins, minerals, and high in fiber. With its golden yellow color, it's a healthy side dish to add visual appeal to almost any meal.
1 medium to large butternut squash
3-4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Generous sprinkle of salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 375°F
Cut the butternut squash in half and scoop out the guts and seeds with a spoon; discard.
Place both squash halves in a broiler pan and drizzle them with a generous amount of extra-virgin olive oil, then sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
Bake in the oven, uncovered, for about 40-45 minutes, until the squash becomes really soft and can easily be pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Check from time to time to make sure the squash isn't burning. You want the water to eventually completely evaporate, which will allow the squash to caramelize, but you don't want things to burn. Add a little bit more water if you feel things are getting a tad too dry and dark...
When the squash is fully cooked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes until you can safely handle it, then scoop out the flesh with a spoon.
Serve as is or mash roughly with a fork or potato masher.
Made these meatballs and then kept them warm in a slow cooker in tomato sauce for a few hours before serving over some @eatbanza spaghetti!😍 swipe for details

Weight loss vs Weight gain with Pot Roast and Green Beans over a Potato Cauliflower Mash from page 24 of the Meal Prep Manual - 2nd Edition eBook 😎😎
I have made these bad boys using a crock pot and an instant pot and they turn out way better in the crockpot. I know a lot of you guys have asked for more instant pot recipes but Im always disappointed when I use the instant pot. The food just never comes out as good as it does in a crockpot. Maybe I just don’t know what I’m doing or maybe instant pots really do suck. More experimentation is necessary. If you guys have any good instant pot resources that I should read, let me know. .
The weight loss side of this meal uses mashed cauliflower instead of potatoes. I like to use frozen cauliflower instead of fresh because 1. It’s cheaper and 2. It’s easier to work with. You can put it in the microwave for a short time and then toss it into a blender. I much prefer this over raw cauliflower that you have to breakdown and steam first. I’ve never tried making this meal with chicken but I’m guessing you’d get a similar result and save even more calories. Next time I make this recipe I’ll give it a shot. .
The weight gain side uses mashed potatoes and has a lot more beef. A mixture of potatoes and cauliflower is also a great choice so you can still get some vegetables in and the potatoes will hemp mask the flavor!! Not many people will need a 957 calorie meal even if they are trying to gain weight but I got a little carried away when I was plating this one. Make your serving sizes as needed.

WHAT I EAT IN A DAY actually does not give you an accurate idea of how I eat. In fact what anyone eats in one meal, or one day, or one week, doesn't give you an idea of how they eat 🤷♀️ Ultimately your diet is a sum of what you eat over weeks and months. And everyone's idea of "balance" will look different 😊
Currently maintaining my weight on this intake and feel very happy with it!
