Mindful Movement Studio Fitness Announcement

MMS fitness post.jpg

You may have heard that something BIG is coming for Lean and Green Body®!

Well the rumors are true!! It’s official … I am launching online FITNESS classes through the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO starting August 2019!

I am thrilled to have the opportunity to expand the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO.

I currently offer yoga and meditation classes online; 20, 40 and 60 minute options available, as well as 5-10 minute “quickies”. I will now be expanding to 10-30 minute workouts! These are workouts that you can do ANYWHERE with limited (if any) equipment, making this the perfect tool for those movers & shakers with the on the go entrepreneurial lifestyle.

The thing that I personally love about this online studio is the ability for me to take these workouts, yoga classes, and guided meditations, anywhere with me. My husband and I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to travel frequently and I always miss my workouts and yoga classes when I travel. So obviously, I decided I had to create a solution! A solution that was originally designed to fill a void in my life, and I hope it will help fill one in yours as well.

You can login to your MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO account from anywhere in the world (tropical vacation, Alaskan cruise… anywhere with wifi!) any time of day!! That’s what I love most!! It’s a workout or yoga class on YOUR schedule.

I have actually found that I have been using this studio a lot at home recently too! We are in the midst of a move, and the studios in my area don’t always offer classes that fit into my schedule … no problem! I simply login to the MINDFUL MOVEMENT STUDIO, select the type of class (yoga or fitness), select the length of class I want and the difficulty level. It’s that simple!

I have had the opportunity to work on several exciting projects since the start of Lean and Green Body® in 2015 and I have to say this is my most exciting project to date!

Breakfast Tacos

Looking to mix up your breakfast routine and stay on track at the same time??

I have the solution for you!

Even as a holistic nutritionist, I can only drink so many protein shakes a week, sometimes I want a real outside the box breakfast.

One of my favorite breakfasts for these days are tacos! Believe it or not, I love tacos for breakfast.

When thinking about putting your breakfast together consider the following 4 requirements ….

Protein - Healthy Fat - Fiber - Greens

These four powerhouse food groups will keep you on track, satiated, and ready for a big day ahead!

Here is one of my favorite breakfast taco recipes….

  • 2 cage free scrambled eggs {PROTEIN}

  • 1/4 cup black beans {FIBER}

  • 1/2 avocado {HEALTHY FAT}

  • 2 handfuls of spinach {GREENS}

  • 2 corn taco shells

  • (option to use large lettuce cups instead of shells to save carbs, great for Paleo and Keto diets)

4th of July - Chia Seed Pudding

Untitled design-23.png

Celebrate this 4th of July with a healthy treat that the whole family will love!

Chia seed pudding is one of my favorite treats … yes, and even sometimes my favorite breakfast!

I love the thick pudding like consistency and the slight sweetness from the berries and almond milk … but the best part is that it’s healthy!!

Chia seed pudding is packed with protein, fiber, and omega 3 fatty acids.

One ounce of chia seeds contains 4.7 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber!

The base is fairly easy to make and can last for a few days in the fridge.

For this special 4th of July chia seed pudding, I am topping mine with blueberries and strawberries!

For an extra special treat you can top yours with fresh almond milk whipped topping!!

Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup vanilla unsweetened almond milk (or nut milk of your choice) (1 cup plain Greek yogurt) - optional

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds

  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and chopped

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, gently whisk the almond milk, yogurt, and the vanilla until just blended.

  2. Whisk in the chia seeds; let stand 30 minutes.

  3. Stir to distribute the seeds if they have settled. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

  4. The next day, in a medium bowl, toss the berries and mix in the almonds.
