Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu

by Jen on March 1, 2015

This Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu tastes amazing and is full of healthy ingredients. Serve to company or for a special family dinner!

Skinny Chicken Cordon Bleu

I’ll be honest, I never used to like Chicken Cordon Bleu! I wasn’t a fan of swiss cheese, I found the flavour too overwhelming. However, I had also never made my OWN Chicken Cordon Bleu, it was always store-bought. So when I came across a recipe for a healthy version of Chicken Cordon Bleu, I wanted to try it to see if I would like it now. Well, I LOVE it!! This is one of my favourite recipes, it’s absolutely delicious!

Traditionally, when you order Chicken Cordon Bleu in a restaurant, it is fried. Who needs that extra unhealthy fat??! My Skinny version is baked in the oven, and trust me, you can’t even tell the difference.

This is a great meal to serve to company or even for a nice family dinner. If you have picky eaters, I bet they will love this recipe too! You can substitute part-skim mozzarella for the Swiss cheese if you like a more mild flavour. Add a side salad and you have a complete meal!

Enjoy!

3 Day Refresh is Now Available in Canada

by Jen on February 24, 2015

Are you ready to jumpstart your weight loss and get rid of some belly bloat? The 3 Day Refresh will help you do that, and it’s now available in Canada!

3 Day Refresh Now Available in Canada

Lets face it, no matter how healthy we think we eat, how much we think we exercise, there is always room for improvement!

Every time I challenge myself to keep track of my food, I notice big jumps in my fitness, my energy levels, and I just feel better.  I know personally how easy it is to get off track.  It starts with a cookie here and a bite of my kid’s snacks there, a few cocktails with friends and before you know it, you feel stuffed!  All the working out in the world isn’t going to take away that bloated & sluggish feeling you get when you over eat!  I know this because I totally did this the week of our trip to Mexico.

My 3 Day Refresh Results

After just 3 days, I lost 6 lbs of belly bloat and my abs started showing again!!!

As I sat brainstorming ideas for my next support group, this idea hit me!

How about celebrating the launch of the 3-Day Refresh Program in Canada by incorporating the 3 Day Refresh and a 30 day clean eating & shakeology group! YES!  This is perfect!  Ok, so why is this perfect you might ask?!

The 3 day refresh is designed to give you fast, clean, and efficient weight loss.  You can quickly drop a few pounds, break a bad habit and get back on track!  It’s 3 shakes a day, a fiber drink, plenty of water, fresh fruits, veggies, and healthy fats so that you keep your energy and  your metabolism going.  It is not a juice or fasting diet but a healthy diet that is going to give your body nutrition vs starvation.

3-day-refresh-results2

Then, once we jump start our weight loss and clear out the gunk, we can preserve our results and not slide back into old habits by continuing on for 30 days of clean eating!  I don’t want you to do the 3 day refresh and just go back to how it was before you started.  I want you to maintain and make progress.  So for 30 days, I am going to give you a great meal plan, share how easy it is to prepare family friendly healthy meals, teach you the importance of proper nutrition, the fundamentals of clean eating and how to fuel your body for energy and not comfort.

So how does this work?  Well if I am not your Team Beachbody Coach then you would make me your coach.  Contact me below by filling out the application below to join!  You are required to purchase the 3-day refresh challenge pack from me as your coach.  Then, you are accepted into my closed online support group that will begin on March 9th.

We will start with the 3 Day Refresh then 30 days of replacing 1 meal a day with Shakeology, healthy eating and any exercise of your choice.  It does not have to be a Beachbody Fitness Program, although I encourage you to do some form of physical activity for 30 minutes a day 5 days a week!  :)  (21 Day Fix,  Chalean Extreme, Piyo, T25)

Each day you will log into the group for your tip of the day, daily motivation, inspiration and accountability. I will share recipes along with ways to handle late night munchies, sugar cravings, emotional eating, temptations and more.  You will be accountable each day to report with the group your food and your workouts!

At the end of the 30 days we will measure our progress, submit our results and in 30 days you will have kicked bad habits, introduced new healthy habits and be on your way to creating life long health and wellness for you and your family!

Does this sound like something you would like to do? 

 If so, join me my completing the application below.

Then, create a free account so that I am your Team Beachbody Coach.

The cut off for registration is Tuesday, March 3rd!!!  So don’t wait until the last minute or you might miss an opportunity to truly transform your health and feel your best this spring!

 Stop saying tomorrow, stop putting off the small changes because you never know what tomorrow will bring!  You only have today, your health, your choices and this ONE life! It’s so precious and I can’t say enough about how important it is to take care of what we have!

So whether you need a total overhaul or just a few tweaks, now is your time!  From woman to woman, mom to mom, business owner to business owner, trust me YOU have TIME to put yourself FIRST for 30 minutes each day!

If you would like to be considered for my upcoming 3 Day Refresh and Clean Eating Support Group, please complete the form below.  I will contact you within 24 hours with further information regarding the group.
