Chili rubbed steak salad

This takes hardly anytime at all to make, so if you are in a rush for a high protein, lean meal….. go for this.

Chili rubbed steak salad


3 oz lean sirloin (I use lean stew meat, it’s already cut up in little pieces, the fat is trimmed and it’s cheaper!)
1/4 tsp chilli powder
2 cups shredded red cabbage (amazing crunch)
1/4 medium avocado
2 tbsp light balsamic vinaigrette
1 lime

Season sirloin with chili powder and if desired, sea salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat medium sized skillet on medium high heat.

Add sirloin, cook, stirring constantly, for  2 minutes or until cooked through.

Top cabbage with meat and avocado, drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and lime.

Tilapia Boats

Do you ever have those nights where you feel like there is nothing in the house to cook? The best thing to do when that happens is just start pulling out whatever healthy random things you DO have and just make something up! This was my story tonight. So I ended up with tilapia, romaine lettuce, onion, a carrot, lime and a bag of steamer edamame.

I left the Romaine lettuce whole, filled then with chopped onion, long sliced carrots (so one carrot would go further) and a good amount of steamed edamame peas…. peas?

I know they are soybeans, but I always want to call them peas. Lol

Next, season the tilapia with your favorite Mrs. Dash

(0 carbs, 0 calories, 0 sodium).

Grille fish on medium high heat 3-4 minutes,

flip, continue cooking until flaky.

Lay fish into romaine boats and

squeeze an insane amount of lime juice all over it…. 🙂

This meal was about 300-340 calories for two boats.


Fun fact about edamame “peas”….

Winter stair climb for that summer booty

I love this stair workout I got from a fellow coach…… who lives in California. She does this stair climb outside at a college. So lucky!  I live in Missouri, so winters are not the best for outdoor workouts. So inside it is! Most of my  workouts are easy to do at home, normally, no equipment needed 🙂

Be on the lookout in your own town for safe areas to do this at.

Tag me in your instagram pictures, can’t wait to see you doing this too!
