One of my favorite meals➡️ BURGERS😍

💡You don't have to eat bland boring chicken and rice for every meal to make gains and or lose weight! (Although you will make progress, you don't need to restrict or bore yourself)
💡You can honestly eat *whatever* you want for the most part, as long as it fits your macronutrient goals for that day😊💪🏽

Soy much flavor in every bite! Our tofu is marinated in a mole mix for 24 hours before it’s baked with love. Served with brown rice, corn & beans! 🌱🌱
💥Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt: Tiramisu💥
- FYI: I’m a pretty big fan of this line of yogurt, solid flavors, great greek yogurt consistency.
-FYIpt.2: Although I don’t crave literal “tiramisu”, it’s a coffee flavored pastry, so this is expected to provide a sweet, coffee + cake-like flavor. And THAT, my friends, is something I (& many people) crave.🤤☕️
-Don’t get me wrong, this was enjoyable... but it was NOT my favorite
-The coffee was there, & there WAS an underlying sweetness, but it aired more on the artificial side.
-Because of this, the yogurt tasted less italian-pastry-like, & more Skinny Latte-like, leaving somewhat of an unenjoyable aftertaste
- HOWEVER it was coffee (as promised)... and it wasn’t awful... -
(TBH, I ate it all just trying to figure out my feelings towards it.)
‼️Confusing info, yes I know. Overall, it is a yogurt with a solid coffee flavor, but lacks the pastry/cake/sugary expected by its name. Dannon would’ve been better to simply call it latte/cappuccino, rather than Tiramisu. I think the fake-sweetness didn’t work well with the coffee, but I didn’t hate it either. There are much better flavors in this line.‼️
It’s a 4/10 for me..... but if this confused you to the point of curiosity, then buy it at your own discretion & see for yourself🙂

Things aren’t always perfect in life. That’s ok. I still love the colors of the little dish.
And the whole family loved it.
Check out the bio link to learn more about why we switched to healthier lifestyle!
lunch in the great outdoors! Seasoned Chicken salad with zesty Italian dressing and bell peppers, side of potato and 2oz Almonds. 58g Protein, 69g Carbs, 30g Fat; 749 Calories.
When we are looking to eat healthy, the first meal that springs to mind is the dreaded salad -- but even a simple salad is missing important components for a healthy meal. What are these main components for a balanced meal? Macronutrients.
When we’re looking at macronutrients the key things we’re looking at are carbohydrates, fat and protein.
Macronutrients are the energy-giving components of our foods and help our bodies to function properly.
If the meals we eat are not macronutrient balanced, it can affect the way our bodies function.
If you’re eating unbalanced meals, you’ll possibly gain or lose weight in an undesirable way. You might not feel as well or energetic as you can.
This is a pitfall of low carb diets. So when eating a salad next time, add in those macronutrients and that “dreaded” salad 🥗 will no longer be so dreaded after all!

It’s almost last call! Order for Monday or Tuesday tonight! You know how you need us to get summer ready? 👙 We kind of need you to stick around in the summer too. 🤷🏼♀️ Order tonight at www.fueledbyelise.com or click the link in our bio now.
Dinner tonight!!! 🥦🥕🥑 My new obsession that I concocted made of @sietefoods
Cassava Flour tortillas, vegan pesto, baby spinach & chunks of avocado folded & heated on a skillet - and then I added a side of roasted carrots & broccoli! YUM! Roasting veggies make them taste so much more delicious than steaming them! 🙊🙊
And I don’t know about y’all but I’m not one of those people who makes perfect food! I use NON-toxic, tri-ply Stainless Steel Pans as well as @lecreuset
cast iron pans and that doesn’t always equal pretty food when working with delicate foods that stick easily (hence the hole in my tortilla!) BUT the most important thing is knowing that NO toxic chemicals leeched into my food! So let’s focus on cooking and eating healthy even if that means not making Instagram perfect food 😬
More beach snacks! 🏝 Some @vtsmoke
beef & pork meat sticks and a bag of @traderjoes
just a handful of almonds! 😊👍🏻
Turmeric Latte inspired quinoa porridge, chia, hemp seeds, berries and cinnamon
Cook quinoa in almond milk with a tsp turmeric and a tsp of maple, cook berries into a compote, add to bowl, too with turmeric quinoa, add cinnamon, sprinkle with hemp and chia and any other nuts and seeds you like. Could also use coconut milk/cream if you wanted it creamier or more like a dessert rice porridge 🌱 new fav breakfast
whaddaya do when you’re super short on time and can’t get to the gym but still want to get a workout in? ya pull out the dusty dumbbells from underneath your bed and get outside and make it happen!
I did 30 min of upper body moves with one pair of 8lb DBs and a few resistance bands and my shoulders were burnin! I didn’t really count reps and sets, just kept doing exercises for 30 min with a few water breaks!
here are some moves you can do with just a pair of DBs
💪🏼 standing DB shoulder press
💪🏼 standing lateral raises
💪🏼 standing front raises
💪🏼 bent over rear delt raises
💪🏼 overhead tricep extensions
💪🏼 bent over tricep kickbacks
💪🏼 standing bicep curls
💪🏼 standing hammer curls
and SO many more! I like to stand when I’m doing efficient workouts like these to engage my core and burn more calories in a short period of time. keeping rests short and intensity high can also help get your calorie bang for your buck when you’re short on time!
hope you’re having a great saturday, and gettin your workout in whether it be in a gym or not :)
The ideal intake of macronutrients is 80% carbs + 10% protein + 10% fat + water according to T Colin Campbell (human nutrition expert and Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University)
Major tidbits I learned from his Plant-Based Nutrition course: ✅
The amount of protein you need depends on your body weight (0.5 grams of protein per kg body weight per day). So if I weighed 130 lbs, that’s 48 grams of protein for me each day
Certain proteins have a “higher biological value” which means they help increase cell division and body growth. While this is essential, it’s not always a good thing since that increased growth can also apply to cancer cells. 🐓
Animals’ protein amino acid makeup very closely resembles ours which is why it’s deemed the “preferred” protein, helping us get “bigger and stronger”. 💪
But animal-based proteins have a higher biological value and trigger things like earlier menstruation in women and more breast cancer
A Yale study showed higher amounts of animal protein led to calcium bone loss (osteoporosis) 🙅🏻♀️
Animal-based proteins increase cholesterol levels while plant proteins lower them. (Our bodies naturally make the perfect amount of cholesterol so we don’t need to eat it)
In the 80s, Campbell studied protein deficiency in Asia and wanted to help them get more of it until he realized the wealthy kids who regularly ate a lot of meat were the ones getting diseases that are prominent in the US. He calls this “diseases of affluence” like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer. 🔍
He and his team found that when protein intake is 10% or higher, we start running into issues.
So while protein IS absolutely essential and we need it each day to replace the protein we excrete, getting too much of it has been linked to major problems.
There’s no such thing as protein deficiency in the first world. Plant proteins are different from animal-based ones with no negative side effects. 🍠
So then what’s the big deal with protein?
It was popularized by a doc in the 1800s thus starting the Almighty Protein brand

Is it just me or is summer burger season?! 😜🍔 but burgers can be SUPER macro unfriendly with a very high fat to protein ratio 😬 so I LOVE to make these super tasty, juicy, high protein, and nutrient dense Lean Ground Turkey Zucchini Patties 😍👌😋🙌
This is FOR SURE the best use of ground turkey I've ever done! Who knew lean ground turkey could be SO juicy! The water from the zucchini for sure helps! I want to try this again with extra lean ground turkey and see if that will still keep it juicy. Using the extra lean will bring the fat grams way down 👌
My MVP for my meal prep is the new Chile lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 👌🙌 0 cal 👍👍👍 100% delicious! .
Ingredients for 4 patties: 1 lb of lean ground turkey meat, 3 stalks of green onion, 200g zucchini, and Chile lime seasoning
Directions: Grate zucchini and green onion (I used the food processor grate option to made this REALLY simple), next combine meat, zucchini, onion, and seasoning in a bowl (just use your hands 😜) and form into 4 patties. Cook patties on a heated skillet/pan (DO NOT put them on the grill, they will fall through!) cook them on medium heat for 5 minutes on each side, then enjoy 🤤 .
Do you guys love turkey burgers?! If not, then this will convert you! 😆 My bf's uncle liked them and he hates turkey! Plus it sneaks in a little veggies 😘.
Be sure to tag a friend who loves turkey burgs and/or zucchini!! 🥒🍔 #SweatLoveMacroEats

💥FAT LOSS VS WEIGHT LOSS💥
🔴FAT LOSS & WEIGHT LOSS🔴
Tag a friend in the comments to help them out 🙌🏻⤵️
Did you know this? 🤔👋🏻
I bet all of you wonder why, even if you start dieting, your weight just doesn’t want to go down. And no, it’s not because you’re “special”, “God hates you” or whatever your reason might be.. the simple answer is: Water retention.
And besides the muscle gains that could happen for beginners [(and still impair WEIGHT) but not fat loss] let’s take a finer look at what happens to the fat cells once you start dieting.
When you start eating at a caloric deficit, meaning that you’re now providing less nutrients to your body, for it to use its internal stores of energy, your fat cells start releasing fat for the “missing” energy not coming from your diet.
However, because these cells are VERY stubborn, they get refilled with water first, before saying the final goodbye.
It’s like a double check from your body which’s telling you: “are you really wanting me to release this precious stored energy?”
This means your weight could fluctuate alot and even go higher, freak you out more and make you quit, but you shouldn’t.
I know how frustrating it is to see your weight either stall or go higher when you’re depriving yourself, but that’s just the way it is!
You’re just one step further from finally losing the water weight which is literally MASKING your progress, and finally reveal your hard work done in the past weeks.
As always consistency is key. In everything✅

Yummy Turmeric Chicken with a side of spinach and guac for lunch!
🍗 Chicken breast sliced into chunks. Put some olive oil on a pan on low medium heat then toss the chunks in there (carefully, bc sizzling #ouch
🍴Season the chicken with turmeric and garlic on both sides. Keep it on the stove until it’s cooked throughout.
🥗 Spray a pan with no stick and throw a big handful of spinach on it and let it cook. I don’t put any olive oil in with the spinach because I don’t want the extra fat from the oil.
🥑 Scoop about 1.5 tablespoons of the guacamole of your choice on the side to eat with the chicken and...
WALLAHH - you have a healthy and tasty meal 😋
Turmeric has become my go to seasoning for chicken (not like I’m a very experienced chicken seasoner AT ALL). It’s my go to because it’s tasty and has a bunch of health benefits.
It’s a yellow-orange powder that comes from the ginger family.
~ It is a good anti-inflammator, meaning it fights inflammation. (And may help fight the cold or flu)
~ Some studies have found that turmeric can lower bad cholesterol.
~ it increases our body’s antioxidant capacity.
~ Some research has also shown that due to its antibacterial and anti-flammatory properties, that it helps fight acne.
~~ while I am no turmeric expert and I’m sure there is much more turmeric, I definitely believe it is a food that you should try incorporating into your diet!

Breakfast of champions this morning 🍳 🥑 🍌 ☕️ 🥥 —
- 3 eggs 2 yolks (cooked in olive oil)
- 1 plantain (cooked in coconut oil)
- 1/4 avocado - 1 cup of black coffee
This plate covered all of my macronutrients (carbs, protein, fat, and fiber). The protein and carbs provide my body with the fuel I need for some intense focus and physical activity and the high fat content of the plate will keep me feeling good for a while. —
(I normally wouldn’t ditch an egg yolk but this plate already had a high fat content and I wanted to do a pretty intense workout about 1.5 hours later.)
I ate the food and drank half of my coffee. I worked and wrote for about 1.5 hours and finished the 2nd half of my coffee 30 minutes before my workout. —
Not only was this breakfast delicious but I also felt great throughout my workout -satiated without being too full (no burping during my burpees).
Be smart about how you fuel your body! It’s all part of working smarter, not harder 😎
