8-WEEK CHALLENGE TO BUILD HEALTHIER HABITS

8-WEEK CHALLENGE TO BUILD HEALTHIER HABITS

I am SO excited to FINALLY be rolling out the details of my 8-Weeks to Build Healthier Habits Challenge!!

 

I have been contemplating for a long time HOW to help the ladies around me who want to make changes in their lives. I knew I wanted to use the format of a challenge, but was overwhelmed at the thought of the many different directions it could go. When I took a step back and really thought about it, I decided to LISTEN to what questions I was being asked about how I have been so successful in my lifestyle change. The same question comes up over and over and over again--

 

"How did you make a change?"

 

And my answer is the same every time--

 

"I built healthier habits."

 

And that is EXACTLY what this challenge is about. Making changes to your lifestyle can be difficult. Knowing where to start, what to do, how to stay on track can be overwhelming. This challenge walks you through WHAT habit building is and HOW to do it. Each week covers a new topic so that your good habits can build in a progressive and seamless manner that fits YOUR life. It offers guidance, accountability, and support. In 8 weeks, you CAN make the changes you want to make and we are going to do it together.

 

Here's a little about the challenge--

[RECIPE]: Loaded Tortilla Soup

[RECIPE]: Loaded Tortilla Soup


Yesterday in Arkansas it snowed for like half a second and the whole state lost its mind!

 

 

 

In all seriousness, it was COLD. And all I wanted was a big bowl of soup. I normally go for a comfort food soup on a "snow" day with lots of fall flavors and seasonal produce, but something about the week before Thanksgiving has me avoiding those foods. Probably because I know I'll be eating them for an entire week straight and then....leftovers.

 

So I took a little break from Fall flavors and made one of my favorite recipes - my Loaded Tortilla Soup. I call it loaded because truthfully, I just throw everything in that I can and then use ALL the toppings.

 

This is a lot like my Taco Soup recipe, but uses more veggies and I use thin corn tortilla strips to top it as well as spicy pepperjack cheese.

 

Give this recipe a try on your next chilly day. It reheats great so you can batch make it as well. Just skip adding the zucchini until you're ready to eat it.

 

 

 

What You'll Need:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (93/7)
  • salt, pepper, onion powder
  • red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup golden corn
  • 1/2 cup white corn
  • 1 can rotel diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups zucchini, spiralized
  • 6 thin corn tortillas, cut into strips and baked
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons shredded pepperjack cheese
  • 1 avocado, cut into slices
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • ciltantro

 

What You'll Do:

  1. Brown ground beef in large stock pot over medium heat until no longer pink.
  2. Drain fat and remove pot to heat.
  3. Add bell pepper and salt, pepper, onion powder and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.
  4. Add beans through chili powder and stir to combine.
  5. Add beef broth to pot and turn heat to high, bringing liquid to a boil.
  6. Reduce to a simmer and let cook for 10 minutes.
  7. Add zucchini and let cook addition 5 minutes.
  8. Serve in bowls with 1/4 tortilla strips, 1 tablespoon cheese, 1/4 avocado, 1/4 cherry tomatoes, 1 tablespoon greek yogurt, and top with cilantro.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
