"Naked" Burger & Homemade Healthy Ketchup

Turkey Burger (or Lean Hamburger) seasoned with your favorite seasonings.  I like onion powder, garlic powder, salt & pepper.  Grill and lay on lettuce, with bacon, avocado, pickles, mustard and my homemade ketchup!! Put whatever you like on your burger.  I've also tried it with grilled pineapple....yummy!!

If  there is something that I want that doesn't have real healthy ingredients then I look at the label and see if I can make it myself. High Fructose Corn Syrup is one of the worst things for you and it's in almost every packaged food!! Look at your labels and see what you find. 

My Ketchup:
1 can 6 oz tomato paste
5 tsp distilled white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp onion powder
dash of chili powder
Mix well.  Add less or more seasonings to your liking.

Zuchinni Spaghetti

I never would have tried anything like this over a year ago! Zuchinni!! Blah! What???!! I would have only wanted that in Zuchinni bread  But, it's one of my favorite meals now!!

Brown some Ground Turkey (or Hamburger)
season with salt, pepper, minced garlic, garlic powder, onion powder, onion flakes or onions while cooking. Drain fat then add 3 or 4 cans of plain tomato sauce. Then to your taste again add salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, minced garlic...also add Italian seasoning. Heat on low, Stir to mix well and taste to make sure it's just right 

Meanwhile- peel 1 or 2 zuchinni (I use 1 zuchinni per serving and I always want 2 servings to myself) :) Peel with a potato peeler, then continue to peel to make long "noodles" (or better yet use a veggie noodle maker thingy)  Saute in a pan with a little butter or coconut oil and all the same seasonings you used in the sauce. Saute until tender but not soggy! Top with sauce....yummy!! Easy!

My family will usually eat this on gluten free noodles and I'll have the zuchinni :)
What is your first impression of this meal?? Would you try it?

Fit Mama Wannabe Challenge!!

I have come to realize that nobody is perfect in their eating! If you are a perfect eater then you are probably not being completely truthful. Usually when somebody wants to be perfect in their eating and they slip they feel major Guilt!! But, why?? Nobody is meant to be perfect.  The reason I get major guilt is because I really shouldn't eat some things and not only do I feel guilt but I feel Major sickness!!! Not only headache, stomache ache, dizziness, breathlessness, heart palpitations, but my acne prone sensitive face gets worse and that lasts for days, after the sickness settles, that is almost the worst part for me. I've been trying to clear up my skin for years and finally found the thing that does it.  The food I eat!!! If I had only known that years ago. :/ But, I'm still not ever going to be completely perfect with  my eating.  There are some things that are worth being sick for a couple days...haha.  It doesn't feel worth it when those consequences set in...LOL.  But, if feels worth it in the moment. Why not be able to enjoy things that you really love once in a while.  I'm not going to cause myself this sickness over random things.  They will be things that are more worth it to ME.  My moms homemade macoroni and cheese, banana cream pie, chocolate chip cookie dough oreos...haha...maybe! Those sound delicious :) It's all about the moment and if it's worth it at the time. 

I also know that when you focus 1 month on making the healthiest of habits you WILL feel the best you have ever felt and it CAN lead you to find the right path of healthy eating for YOU! You CAN do this for 1 month without cheats! If you do slip that is your choice, do it without guilt.  Make your focus about healthy food and this has the potential to help you find that balance for the rest of your life.  Detoxify your body, focus on healthier habits and move forward in health!! 

This is what I have decided to do for myself for February.  I need to tighten the reigns for myself again and get back on track.  I do plan on doing it all or nothing for February, beyond that it still is my focus because that's what works for me and my health.  But, if I slip every now and again after that it's ok, I'm not perfect, maybe that is MY Perfect!  If I ever need to tighten the reigns I'll just do it again.  

What do you say!! Are you ready to find YOUR perfect? Are you ready to challenge yourself to find your health?
