Coconut Curry Soup

Standard

I am obsessed with this soup. Seriously. Not only is it dairy free, but it is oh-so-comforting. Even better, you can use this coconut curry broth as a base for what ever else you would like to add to it—noodles, shrimp, chicken, more veggies. It really does not matter what veggies or protein you add in!

I’ve made this with the bare minimum as listed below, and I have also added tons of stuff as pictured above. Use what you want and leave out what you don’t want! The real star of the show is the broth so do not skip on any of the base ingredients!

Fall 2019 Client Progress Photos

Standard

Looking through these pictures you may be thinking, “I need to get on that plan” or “I need what they are taking.”

“That plan” is not something we give you. We actually help you build it for yourself. Ever heard the saying, “Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime?” Well, that’s the concept here. We actually care that you learn these skills because it will serve you for a lifetime.

And what “they are taking” is nothing but good food and some good sleep habits. We do not want our clients to rely on supplements or gimmick plans. That is not what was intended for your body and health. The sooner you accept that the sooner you can really start to change for good.

What you see here are the results of a little more awareness of what is really going on, a little more effort in changing some lifestyle habits, and getting in an autopilot-groove of the habits. The action steps we coach are the foundation to what your health could become.

Asian Beef & Noodles

Standard

I definitely surprised myself with this one! I am not really sure what to call it because it’s a little “pad thai,” and a little peanut sauce-ish, and just basically a good Asian-Flavored dish if you are in the mood for “take out!” You could even do this with just veggies for a yummy side dish!

Instead of flour noodles, I subbed mine out for spaghetti squash, and in my opinion tasted even better than the regular noodles I used for my husband and son’s batch!

Summer 2019 Progress Pics

Standard

Inches, pounds, pants sizes— they all go down. But what builds up is even more important…confidence, self-esteem, knowledge, action, happiness, excitement, understanding, forgiveness… the list can go on.

Do you know what really happens in the Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge? It’s not a weight loss program. It’s a complete re-train of what you think you know, what you think you have to do, what you think you like, and what you think you want.

We do not tell you what to do—we show you what healthy habits are, what consistency really looks like on a day-to-day basis, coach you how to get there and stay consistent. You have a full 12 weeks of practice to get really good at these habits, and as a result, your body composition changes.

These habits are not just for people who want to “lose weight.” These are the habits our coaches use and people living a healthy life, free of yo-yo dieting, crash diets, counting or gimmicks.

Because these habits are not a gimmick. These habits are what healthy individuals do as their “normal.” Do you get that?

We are people who:

  • eat majorly whole foods;
  • drink water as our beverage of choice;
  • we are never on a “diet;”
  • we love eating lots of food;
  • we see food for what it can do for us, rather than the enemy.

If you don’t, you need to sign up for the 12 Week Challenge.

CK is not a magical meal plan, or precise macro-calorie-counting, or special systematic timing of meals. CK is real life application. We don’t go around weighing every once of food or telling ourselves we “can’t eat because it’s not time.” No, we learned to eat they way our bodies were intended to be nourished so there is no need for that.

The CK Challenge is about becoming a “different” person than you are now in every way. Not just physically as you see in these photos below, but in the way you think about food, how you plan, how you measure progress, how you talk to yourself and forgive yourself. More importantly, how you learn to love a process that is foreign to some of you now. By the end of week 12 you will get it, it’s automatic…it’s a habit 😉

Our clients really get it. You can too.

Blueberry Chicken Salad

Standard

Chicken salad is a CK staple recipe. We have quite a few! Chicken salad is the perfect, fast meal prep and easy to take on the go meal that fills all the CK meal habits. Needless to say, we are big fans of chicken salad!

Blueberry Balsamic + Rosemary Olive Oil from J. Olive Co. gives chicken salad a new twist and we think it is absolutely delicious!

But this chicken salad was what I call a “happy accident.” My happy accidents usually happen when I completely bomb an original idea for a recipe, but then out of the ashes I become inspired to salvage it.

Originally I planned to do a marinated, bone-in spilt chicken breast with blueberry balsamic, rosemary oil, salt, garlic cloves, and fresh rosemary. I thought it would turn out fantastic, but it ended up being under seasoned. So instead of wasting the chicken, I thought it would be good to add more seasoning and “things” for a chicken salad. And wholah! Blueberry chicken salad was born!

And I think you are going to love it. I know I do!

Fall 2018 Progress Pictures

Standard

600+ pounds gone forever.

135+ inches, from their waist alone, gone forever.

Weight-loss is a big draw for anyone to do a “challenge,” but ours is more of a brain-retrain. When you know better, you do better. But sometimes knowing what to do is not enough. You need accountability and a system in place to keep you consistent. This is what we coach and teach.

The Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge is not a “challenge to lose the most weight.” It is a challenge to change your life. And all our clients go through a life-changing experience during the 12 weeks. The by-product are the amazing results you see below.

Average weight-loss is about 10-15 pounds of body fat. But what is not measured on the scale is measured by the massive amounts of inches lost, and the boat-load of confidence all our clients, not just the ones you see here, gained during their time with us.

We coach people from the inside out and change not only their bodies, but their perspective about healthy living too.

So without further ado, here is the winner of $1000 and the Fall 2018 Clean Kitchen 12 Week Challenge!!
