The Value of Great Recipes

Posted by:

Having several great, fat-burning and health-supporting recipes at your fingertips is priceless.  It’s hard to come up with excuses for why you can’t eat healthy if you have a recipe for that!

This is why I place new recipes on our client-only forum on a regular basis.  If you use these recipes, you’re pretty much guaranteed to get the body you desire, and increase your health in leaps and bounds at the same time.

In the LeanBody Transformation e-book, I’ll also be giving you several awesome recipes, along with three months of pre-planned meals, so you always have something easy to go to.  And believe me, while I can be good at cooking a gourmet meal, I rarely have time to make a large supper, so most of the meals I’m going to give you will be quick, easy, and even made in the slow cooker.  That book is free, so request yours today!

We will never sell or rent your information. Your privacy is important to us!

Here are four awesome recipes that you can use any time. All four are currently included in Stage One (the first month).  That way, you can get started immediately (or spice up your current healthy eating plan)!

Recipe #1:
Banana Oatmeal

Need:
1/2 cup dry rolled oats (old-fashioned oatmeal)
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp cinnamon
1 packet of stevia or splenda (optional)
1 tbsp walnuts

Cook oatmeal by placing oats in a bowl and covering with just enough water, then place in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes. Alternatively, you can heat some water, then throw in oats and allow to simmer for 5 minutes.  After cooking, stir in banana, cinnamon, walnuts, and stevia/splenda.  Enjoy!

Recipe #2:
Kale Chips

Needed:
1 bunch kale, washed, stemmed, and cut into 4 inch pieces (thereabouts)
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (don’t over-oil them)
sea salt or your preferred spice mix

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place rack in middle of oven. Toss kale with olive oil and spread out on large cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt or spices. Bake in oven for 7-8 minutes. Stir once and bake for 5-7 more minutes. Enjoy immediately. These do not save well.

Recipe #3:
Taco & Black Bean Potatoes

Needed:
3 baby red potatoes, or 1 russet potato per person
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 onion
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 cup salsa, divided
Taco seasonings: chili powder, black pepper, paprika, basil

Wash, then bake potatoes in oven for one hour, or in the microwave for 4-7 minutes (until soft).  While they are baking, cook onions on medium-high heat until slightly browned in a skillet, then add the meat and cook through. Add the spices and 1/2 cup of the salsa.  Add the beans and cook until warm. Alternatively, you can warm the beans in a separate saucepan.  When the potatoes are done, serve meat and beans as a topping and enjoy with the other 1/2 cup salsa.  Goes great with spinach leaves and/or romaine lettuce.

Recipe #4:
Greens smoothie

Needed:
1 blender or food processor
1 cup strawberries, fresh or frozen
1 cup spinach leaves
1/2 cup sugar free vanilla yogurt
Water, enough for a smooth consistency (start with a 1/4 cup)
Ice (if you want cold or frosty)

Blend ingredients in blender and enjoy the fun looks you’ll get at this awesome-tasting, but green in color smoothie.  And I’m serious when I say it tastes great, as the spinach is virtually tasteless!

Enjoy these recipes! Please feel free to send this post on, so others can also benefit from these great recipes!

To your health,
