Spinach Casserole

If you want a quick and easy lunch or dinner. Try this Spinach Artichoke Egg Casserole. I added veggie chicken meal starters to it and it turned out perfect. For those who are not vegetarian try putting cooked chopped chicken in it before baking.

Creamy Caprese Cauliflower Casserole

I have discovered that finding new recipes to try that are diet friendly is exciting. Maintaining a healthy diet on top of taking my three step system every day is ensuring that I see weight loss results.

On Sunday I decided to cook this amazing Caprese Cauliflower Casserole and it turned out amazing. To add additional protein I added some vegetarian griller crumbles from morning star. This recipe would also be delicious if you put chicken breasts in the bottom of the casserole dish before adding the casserole ingredients on top.

Celebrating Our Freedom

I want to take a moment and wish all of you a wonderful 4th of July. As many of you may know, it can be difficult to follow a healthy lifestyle during holiday celebrations. I know all to well that keeping it strictly healthy on the holidays is almost impossible. My suggestion would be to just focus on dishes that you love at your BBQs and focus on making it healthier. For instance, I usually see Potato Salad at every family BBQ, this Loaded Cauliflower Mac N’ Cheese would be a great addition or replacement of your carb loaded potato salad. Enjoy! And don’t forget to share with family and most of all HAVE FUN!! 😊😊

Do You Want to Thrive?

The thrive Three Step System is an amazing system. I have gained so much energy and have lost weight on this program. There are many people who have had these same results and more. Just look at how awesome Christyna is doing!!

“My name is Christyna Marshall and this is my first time sharing my Thrive Experience!

Rewinding back to February 2017 I was feeling helpless, defeated, and all together exhausted. Mom guilt was in overload and I just couldn’t see myself out of it. I am a Full Time working mom who woke up never feeling fully rested. After working a full day and grabbing the kids, I would come home and lay on the couch, going to bed right after the kids did, barely getting the day to day chores done. Coffee in the morning, coffee in the afternoon. Soda, green tea with caffeine, energy sprays and lotions.. ANYTHING I could do to feel more awake. Nothing would get done during the week and with the limited time I had on the weekend.. the entire morning would be spent on the couch, coffee in hand, trying to get motivated. Before I knew it half the day was gone and I had done nothing.

Then my children started to notice, “Mommy, my dream for you would be that you could nap everyday so you wouldn’t be so tired”. Hearing this from my daughter broke my heart. How could I do this to them? This isn’t the life I wanted for myself either. I was stuck though and didn’t know where to go or what to do. I was dealing with general aches and discomforts that were affecting my overall quality of life. I started to wonder.. is this what 36 is?

One day I saw my friend post a picture of her DFT and hash tagged energized. And that got me! What is this she has and how do I get this energy?! I NEED to feel energized!! I had never heard of the Thrive Experience before which actually made it that more exciting to me, I had to try it! No hesitation here. After years and years of trying every diet, every fad, every vitamin, energy supplement I could, with no results.. I was (once again) ready to try something new.

From Day 1 I started to notice subtle changes.. every day a little more. By Day 10 I felt ALIVE again. It was pretty surreal.

I knew Thrive was something I could never stop and I had to share with everyone. My general aches and discomforts were calm. No more naps on the couch or dreaming of bedtime. I was awake, alert, and mentally “clear” – who knew I had been living in a fog for so long?!?!

It has become so common to hear “tired as a mother” or “coffee first”. It wasn’t until that fog was lifted that I realized how I do NOT have to feel so tired and should not settle for feeling like that. Life is way too precious to not be able to be FEEL yourself in the moment. Now I find myself just smiling because I feel amazing.. I laugh on the car ride into work and often sing to the kids when I wake them up every morning. My favorite is just to make someone else’s day with a kind word or a compliment because you know that everyone should be Thriving in life.

I am 100% more confident in myself and my abilities to handle things, thanks to those 3 simple steps (capsules, Lifestyle Mix, DFT). I know whatever life throws my way, I will have the energy, strength, mental clarity, and drive to get it done!

14 months later, I am thankful EVERY DAY that I took a chance on a product that changed my life (and my family’s life) forever.”

Exercise

I am not going to mince words, I hate leg day. I literally feel like I am dying after leg day. I’ve got bruises up and down my legs and my feet are killing me but every day that I force myself to do leg day I KNOW that I am getting stronger. If you want a killer routine that gets you the results you want with your legs pick your own weight limit and then try this break down. It’s a difficult but worthwhile workout.

Barbell squats – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

Walking dumbbell lunges – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

Stiff Leg barbell deadlifts – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

DB reverse lunges – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

Hamstring Curls – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

Body weight standing calf raises – 4 sets, 8-12 reps

Recipe – Healthy Eating

Most of the time diets are not fun! I have found many recipes that I love and coupled with proper exercise and a healthy Vitamin Supplement I am feeling amazing. Today I tried a vegetarian version of KETO Chicken Taquitos and they are amazing. For those who are vegetarian just substitute chicken with the meal starter veggie chicken from Morning Star. They are NOT KETO but they are low carb and delicious.

Lifestyle Mix

There are so many health benefits to the thrive program. It’s a three step, eight week, program that helps muscle support and weight management. The lifestyle mix is my personal favorite because I can use it as a breakfast replacement shake. Often the eight week program is so helpful that people continue to use it indefinitely. This lifestyle mix comes in multiple flavors, including Apple Pie & Strawberry. The following link provides the breakdown of all the health benefits.

Thriving

Here is another amazing thrive success story! The thrive three step system will change your life.

“1 year already? Time really does fly when you’re loving life! My name is Leah Hehnly and it’s my 1 year Thriversary!

Rewind a year ago and I was an exhausted momma of 2 very busy little boys. My days consisted of staying in bed as long as I could until I migrated to the couch and waited until nap time. I looked for every excuse to avoid any activity, which meant my boys were missing out on the fun childhood they deserved. I struggled to make it through a 12hr nursing shift relying on coffee and soda only to crash as soon as I sat down. I was miserable.

May 30th 2017 that all changed. I woke up and added 3 simple steps to my life and BAM I was a new person! I started waking up before my kids. Now I push off naptime so we can have more playtime. I dance and sing during my 12hr shifts. I no longer rely on soda and coffee! Instead of crashing by 7pm I’m cleaning the house and enjoying my life again. I’ve lost 30lbs and gained a tribe of friendships. I’ve earned multiple bonuses which are just that, a bonus, because I share my story so others can change their lives like I did.

I AM happy, confident, motivated, alive, grateful, thankful, blessed, and the mom I want to be for my boys! Thank you Le-Vel, Paul and Jason, Angie Foltz, The East Coast Thrive Tribe and my supportive Thriving husband, Zachary for all being a part of the “Me” I am today!”

Start Thriving!

My life, till I graduated in 2016, was full of work and school. I worked two full time jobs and I was completing a full college workload. But because of this I was not eating healthy and once I graduated I was exhausted and my health was very poor. As I am now a Thriver I wish I had of found these products sooner. They have been a huge help with energy and weight loss. They are amazing products. Here is another real life story of success with these thrive products.

“My name is Jenni Pitz and this is my Thrive Experience.

March was One Year since I took my life back. I gave my husband Gary of 21 years his girl back that he met then. Gave both my kids their momma back. I knew I wanted me back the happy, the go getter. She had been gone for a long time, I knew she was in there somewhere. Thanks to my Beautiful amazing niece Angie Harris, I am back and even better than before. I will admit was very skeptical but hey, I had tried everything else why not.

Before Thrive, I was exhausted, had health-related challenges, gained weight, was not sleeping soundly at night, but liked my naps in the afternoon. I always had a smile on my face, if you look closely at my pictures before Thrive that smile was FAKE. But not anymore, it’s for REAL. I was so excited to get started and I knew it would take time for me to feel it.

Day 1, did my 3 steps and had errands and appointments all day. But WOW, what a difference! I was feeling a great difference at that and Gary even noticed. I am wearing the size jeans I wore when I married my husband 21 years ago. And I am at the same weight too.

All I can say is thank you to my niece for sharing Thrive with me and thank you Thrive. I couldn’t have done it without you both. My family has ME back and I will be a Thriver for life.

To say Thrive has changed my life would be an understatement. I have more confidence now than I think I ever did.”

Enchiladas

If you’re like me, you love enchiladas. Or anything that resembles a burrito actually. I found the most delicious low carb enchilada recipes that I thought I would share with all of you. I did not add cilantro because I am allergic and removed the corn because it has lots of carbs. For those of you who are vegetarian, I substituted the chicken with veggie chicken strips. It was delicious! I am finishing off the last of it tonight. Click on this post to see the recipe (picture) attached.
