Zucchini Noodle Caprese With Chicken

by Jen on June 27, 2016

Zucchini noodles are a great low carb option for this caprese dish. I’ve also added in some chicken for a complete meal.

Zucchini Noodle Caprese with Chicken. A great low carb meal that is full of flavour.  21 Day Fix approved.

I’ve been scouring Pinterest lately for veggie noodle recipes! I absolutely love my veggie spiralizer. When I first bought it, I don’t think I used it for 3 months!! What was I thinking?!

I was actually scared to use it because I figured the kids probably wouldn’t like zucchini noodles that much. Boy, was I wrong! They actually prefer the zucchini noodles to pasta noodles! Say what?? That’s why you just gotta try new things with kids – they might surprise you.

I love anything caprese flavoured. It started with my Quinoa Caprese Salad and then my Spicy Caprese Lasagna. But then I wanted something lower in carbs, and that’s when I made this Caprese Spaghetti Squash Bake. Yum, so delicious! As I was looking through Pinterest one day, I came across Skinnytaste’s recipe for a zucchini noodle caprese dish. It looked amazing.

However, there were a couple of little tweaks I wanted to make to the original recipe, and that’s how this recipe came to be!

Zucchini Noodle Caprese With Chicken. A simple, low carb meal the whole family will enjoy.

This meal was absolutely delicious! I love adding the chicken because it makes it very filling with all that protein. My kids loved the fresh cheese, of course 😉

This Zucchini Noodle Caprese with Chicken is definitely a keeper! I think you’ll love it too.

What Does a Beachbody Coach Do

by Jen on June 23, 2016

Learn more about how YOU can get paid for your passion for fitness!

Sneak Peek Into what a Beachbody coach does. Turn your passion for fitness into a business and start earning money now!

Have you ever wondered why God puts certain things in your life?? Sometimes he gives us struggles and hardships, and sometimes it’s other things like the right person, the right place, and the right time and you are meant for a certain experience.

Before I got married, I wasn’t really into fitness or healthy eating. Sure, I watched what I ate a little bit, and I was a treadmill junkie because I thought the only way to lose weight was by running. But in my teens and early twenties, I never really had to worry about significant weight gain.

However, when I got blessed with 3 pregnancies, I started eating a LOT of junk food and stopped being active. I ate everything and anything. Eating the way I did and not remaining active totally destroyed my body and left me feeling tired and not confident.

My before and after. 90 pounds lost.

But it was because of this that working out and healthy eating came into my life. I know that my experience was meant to be, and it is a powerful gift from God so that I can empower and inspire other women to make the change too!!

Now, I’m a stay at home mom and a working mom, I feel like I get the best of both worlds!

While it’s hard some days trying to juggle my work, quality time with my husband and boys, household chores, being social, etc…I feel it’s worth it to me. I want to be able to be with my 3 boys as much as possible and know I’m also providing extra for our family! I’m earning an income based on work I do during my free time.

I’ve had some corporate jobs in the past and I could probably find a new job in my field no problem. But I just don’t want that. I wanted to be able to work with co-workers and teammates I like, clients I like, clients who respect me, who want to improve their health, and I want to work hours that allow me to be with my family!!

I know that for me, I love feeling like I have passion and purpose outside of the house. Not that being a mom isn’t enough, because Lord knows that is the best, most important job I’ll ever have. But I like being able to contribute financially, knowing I am helping other women gain more confidence with their bodies, their health, living healthier, preventing diseases, and feeling better!

You don’t have to have the typical 9-5 job and accept that that is just the way it has to be. There are other options if you’re willing to put in the effort.

I’m looking for women who are:
Go getters
Self motivated
Teachable
Passionate about helping others
And who value their health!

Whether you are stay-at-home mom like me, a full-time working woman with a great job, a part-time working mom, a fitness instructor, a personal trainer…or even if you just want a 25% discount on the Beachbody products you already love, YOU can be a Beachbody coach! This business can help you stay accountable to your own health and fitness goals, and it can help you build a substantial income. It’s all up to you – you get to choose how little or how much you work, which determines your bottom line.

I know it may sound too good to be true, and my hubby thought so too. He just rolled his eyes and laughed at my attempt to join yet another network marketing company. But now he sees it!! He sees the happiness coaching brings me each and every day. He sees I’m serious about this, that I’m committed and happy and I’m doing something valuable for our family and myself. And let’s face it, he also sees the paycheque I have every single week 😉

I want to teach you how to do this too!

On Monday, June 27th, I’m kicking off my free “3-Day Sneak Peek Into What I Do As A Beachbody Coach.” I’m running this private Facebook group where only members can see what is posted to the group. I’m going to post a quick 2-minute video each day that will cover topics such as:

  1. Why I’m a Beachbody coach and how I got started.
  2. What the time commitment is as a coach.
  3. How to make money as a coach.
  4. How much this whole coaching thing costs.
  5. If you need to be at a certain level of fitness to be a great coach.

You’ll be able to ask questions, get answers, and hear from me how I built this business with ZERO experience!

Are you interested in this no obligations group? Simply email me at thefithousewife@gmail.com to get added to the group! We will start on Monday, June 27th. **NOTE: if you found this post after the date listed, I will be running more of these in the future. Please email me and ask me when the next date is!!

**UPDATE! Brand new: If you’re not into the Facebook thing and prefer to do things on your own time, you can now get access to my Email Series! I’ll send you a quick email for 3  days about Beachbody coaching. SIGN UP HERE!

ONE LAST THING….

I feel very strong about getting my new coaches started off right! Each person is unique to our team. There is no “cookie cutter” mould for getting a coach started, that process needs to be individualized to that person’s needs, wants, and desires.

As a new coach on my team, you have a few options for signing up. You can sign up just for the discount, and receive 25% off everything you purchase as a coach. You can be in my monthly Drop a Dress Size groups and work on your own fitness journey. And then you can either become an active coach helping others reach their goals or, stay exactly where you are, just working on your own fitness goals!

If you decide to become an active business building coach, then I would plug you into my “New Coach Basics” training where we cover topics such as:

  • How to launch your business
  • How to invite
  • How to share vs sell
  • How to grow your social network
  • How to earn money

I don’t want you to sign up and then…nothing! My goal is to provide you with a duplicatable system that works and brings you success. You get access to all of our team documents, guides, scripts, resources, training, etc.

For me, it all started with a choice. A choice that I wanted to change more than I wanted to stay the same. I wanted to feel good about myself again and provide some value to our family and my life! Coaching has given us the freedom to live a life by design.

If you are feeling stuck in life and wanting to make a change, then I want YOU on our team! I will teach you everything you need to know as long as you are teachable!
