Deidra Penrose Mangus, healthy meatloaf recipe, stay fit during pregnancy, healthy family dinner recipes, turkey meatloaf, BBQ meatloaf, elite team beachbody coach PA, successful online fitness coach, online fitness support group, fitness motivation, clean eating tips, healthy pregnancy journey

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb lean turkey ground meat
  • 1/2 lb 90% lean ground beef (or 1 full lb of lean ground turkey meat)
  • ½ cup dry oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons sugar free barbecue sauce (I use G Hughes from Walmart)
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, use your hands to mix together the ground turkey, beef, oats, 1 tablespoon of the worcestershire sauce, mustard, 3 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce, onion, the salt, and pepper.
  2. Shape the mixture into a long, thick log and place in an oiled baking dish. Be careful not to pack the meat too tightly or you’ll end up with a very dense, tough loaf.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, the remaining 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce, and the honey. Spread evenly over the meatloaf bake for 45 minutes. Slice and serve!

This is a recipe that is perfect for the kids and family!! I mean, who doesn’t love meatloaf?!?! And they wont even know it’s healthy!!

Ingredients:

  • 2 (25 ounce) jars of pasta sauce
  • 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 pound UNCOOKED penne pasta (I used gluten free made with Quinoa from Aldi)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 15 oz ricotta cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 shredded mozzarella (I use low fat)Crock pot baked ziti, deidra penrose mangus, clean eating dinner recipe, healthy lasagna recipe, top beachbody coach PA, elite team beachbody coach PA, weight loss recipes, healthy pregnancy tips, military fitness, ricotta cheese, healthy recipes with turkey meat and lean ground beef, healthy spaghetti, getting fit for summer, healthy eating tips, spinach

Directions:

  1. Add both ground beef and turkey burger to large pan and cook on stove on medium high for 5 min (or until slightly pink- don’t worry, it will cook the rest of the way in the crock pot).
  2. Combine ricotta, eggs, and spinach in a bowl and stir well
  3. In a large bowl, combine both pasta sauces and tomato sauce together.
  4. Grate Parmesan cheese (I used around 2 cups) and set aside.
  5. Grease the inside of a 6 qt slow cooker (I used Olive oil spray but you can use whatever you have)
  6. Add 2⅓ cups of pasta sauce to the bottom of the slow cooker
  7. Add ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  8. Dot on half of the ricotta mixture and spread out evenly.
  9. Add half of the Parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
  10. Add another 2⅓ cups of sauce mixture
  11. Add an additional ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  12. Dot on the remaining ricotta and spread out.
  13. Sprinkle on the remaining parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
  14. Add the last ⅓ of the uncooked penne.
  15. Top with the remaining 2⅓ cups of sauce mixture
  16. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours, or until pasta is al dente (I found that toking on high for 2-3 hours helps prevent the noodles from getting too soggy)
  17. During the last few minutes, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese to the top and allow to melt
  18. Serve alone or topped with red pepper flakes and a side salad!
  19. Enjoy!

Staying FIT during Pregnancy… with your SPOUSE!

I hope my hubby doesn’t get mad at me for this!!!!😳🙈🙈🙈🙈

But babe.. I’m doing this for US!!!

Here’s the deal:

➡️I haven’t shared my actual before pics until AFTER my results came… and lately, I haven’t had results because I don’t keep my own self accountable enough….

➡️We BOTH have struggled because we let excuses get in the way:

Moving, getting married, pregnant and restricted workouts, etc…

REALITY:

👉🏽If we are going to really do this the right way and the hard way, we need to share the day 1 all the way to the day 30 or 60, etc.. and showing the world before pictures is a great accountability for us!

👉🏽The excuses haven’t helped us get the results we want… it simply prolongs our success… so pregnant, married, moved in, still busy, blah blah blah… let’s friggin kick some booty and do this!!

So yup… here it goes!!

I’m giving you my stats since I started my JANUARY NEW YEAR FITNESS GOALS and where I stand today:

👉🏽weight in Jan- 146

👉🏽weight today- 150 … and yes I’m 12 weeks pregnant but I still had some fat to lose!

I’m up 3 inches with my measurements from Jan… mostly around my belly though 😜 which I’m ok with!!

But my point is to do this as a TEAM and also have a healthy pregnancy where I’m not gaining 60 unhealthy lbs again!!

Brent, I love you and I’m thanking you now for taking one for the team!! 😜😘😘😘🙌🏽💪🏽👊🏽

Taking back old school to P90X3!! 30 days…. with good ol’ Tony Horton himself… rockin’ some pull ups, push ups, yoga, plyo, you name it!! ✌🏽

Day 1 P90X3 COMPLETE!!

Nutrition is all about protein control and making healthy choices!! When your pregnant, you only need 200 extra calories a day.. YOU ARE NOT EATING FOR 2!!! A fetus is NOT another person lol!!! Let’s stay focused and on track and know what is actual hunger and what is emotions and boredom!

So for me, when I’m craving my sweet and chocolate, my to-go is my Shakeology balls…. getting my nutrition but staying on track!!

Who doesn’t love sales and getting fit for summer all in one!?! I am a HUGE bargain person, so I thought I shouldn’t keep this to myself!!!

I know so many people say “being healthy is expensive”…. well, so is being unhealthy my friends!! McDonalds, Arby’s, or any fast food, restaurant, or junk food gets expensive! The difference is, you either can spend your money and invest in your health now, or waste your money on junk and get further away from your goals and then pay for doctor visits, medical expensive, and medication down the road! You pick! I pick to replace the unhealthy spending on reaching my goals and being the best I can be for myself and as a role model for my fam!!

With that said, let’s talk SALES and SAVINGS for that HEALTHY lifestyle!! Beachbody is the company I joined 4.5 years ago that changed my life!! I was able to workout at home, not drag my babies to the gym, or even pay for a gym membership… or a trainer… I wanted to be able to workout in the comfort of my OWN home, get results, and feel good… and THAT is exactly what Beachbody gave me! Now, I am excited to share this with YOU, because I know I am not the only one who struggled with their weight, body image, self-esteem, and energy!

So here are this summer’s Beachbody sales!! Please keep in mind, this is ONLY while supplies last!!
