Consistency is Key!

You ready for the SECRET to weight loss SUCCESS?! It’s NOT a wrap, a pill, a fat burner, a skinny tea or a shake.
.
It can’t be BOTTLED up, marketed, or SOLD…. although everyone does try.
.
It’s not GLAMOUROUS, Fancy, or FAST… 
.
It’s CONSISTENCY. Day in and day out staying consistent with healthy habits. Even when you don’t really feel like it. Even when it feels like it’s taking forever. Even when you have a bad day. And despite all of your OBSTACLES and excuses, you still stick with it.
.
Just stay CONSISTENT. I promise…it works. Day one was a success…onto day two

The choice is yours, What would you choose?

A different type of transformation Tuesday…
I’ve been skinnier, but that girl on the left… WASN’T ME.
I was plagued by anxiety.
Exhausted ALL the time.
Antisocial. 
Freezing in the middle of summer.
Just plain miserable.
Mental health is JUST AS IMPORTANT as physical health.
The girl on the right is 40lbs heavier… yep that’s right and probably more but happy.
She has energy. Confidence. Lives life.
Which would you choose?!

Portobello Pizza

I’m not going to lie, one of the things I miss the MOST being gluten free is PIZZA!!! You just can’t beat it, but here’s a great healthy swap!!!

Source: Light Travels – Carly

INGREDIENTS:
3 large portobello mushrooms, wiped clean, stems removed
Olive oil
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp dried basil
¼ tsp dried oregano
1 cup pizza sauce
½ cup mixed veggies (onion, mushroom, tomato, green pepper, etc.)
Mozzarella cheese
Additional toppings: parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes, fresh basil, etc.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Place cleaned mushrooms on a baking sheet and lightly drizzle both sides with a little olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, basil and oregano, then bake for 5 minutes.

In the meantime, prep veggies and prepare pizza sauce if you haven’t done so already.

After 5 minutes in the oven, pull mushrooms out of the oven and top with desired amount of pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, and veggies. Bake again for 15-20 minutes, or until the veggies are mostly cooked.

Serve with fresh basil, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, etc.
