Saturday's Summer BBQ Recipe: Fresh Berry Tart with Almond Crust! So healthy, fresh and perfect for your Summer BBQ or the 4th of July ;) I definitely suggest that you try this for your next gathering. Its really easy too!

Ingredients

1 c. flour

1/2 c. almond meal

2 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 c. cold butter

dash of salt

1 tsp. almond extract

1 egg yolk



1 pint strawberries

1/2 pint blackberries



Directions

Mix flour, almond meal, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor.

Cut stick of butter into quarters lengthwise, then cut the strips horizontally into cubes.

Add the butter to the dry mixture in the food processor and pulse until it resembles coarse crumbs.

Scrape dry bits at the corners of the food processor bowl, then add almond extract, egg yolk, and water, one tablespoon at a time.

Pulse just enough to incorporate, adding a little more water if the mixture doesn’t stay together.

Remove the crust and gently gather it together on a floured surface.

Cover with a sheet of plastic wrap and roll until it’s the right size to fit your tart pan.

Carefully lift the crust and set it into the pan, trimming edges and patching any broken spots.

Cover the pan and chill for 1-2 hours.

Prick holes in the crust and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. If you are not going to serve the tart right away, reserve the baked crust until right before serving time
Wash the berries and slice the strawberries into desired sizes.

Wednesday's Workout: Strengthen your arms with the Crane pose! Yes add some yoga to your workout!

It will work upper body and arm strength as well as challenge your balancing skills ;) You may need to work on it, but don't let that keep you from giving it a try, especially if you want to work on strengthening your arms, wrists and even your abs.

When balancing with your knees on your
elbows, you'll also be opening your hips and groin and stretching your upper back. It will take a few attempts before you're able to maintain the pose, but it will get easier with practice!!!

Tuesday's Tip: Sneak in your weights with your cardio! A little short on time? I hear ya! This is a great way to get a bit of both in at the same time!

Multitask on the Treadmill: Hop on a treadmill holding a three- to five-pound dumbbell in each hand, and set the speed to a brisk walk. Do a one-minute set each of shoulder presses, biceps curls, triceps extensions, side laterals, front laterals, and standing triceps kickbacks one after another as you walk. It's an amazing upper-body challenge that also gets your heart pumping. Do this series two or three times each week. As you improve, work up to doing four-minute sets. Give it a shot! Cut your workout time in half ;)

Happy Saturday! Its important to remember to stay active and train for you health and future. Its about that time of year when we tend to start looking for shortcuts or those quick "slim down quick tricks". Focus on being happy and doing it for the long term. Remember those quick fixes only push us back later! If your considering a juice cleanse or detox try a 7 day clean eating diet! Start good habits now and you will see the results you have been wanting, but more importantly you will feel great!

Thursday's Q and A: What are some of the best pre-packaged snacks for you? If you are like me, and don't have a whole lot of time to prep food for the week there are some great quick pick solutions to help you through your busy schedule. I don't have much time to prep all my food plus snacks so here are some quick things to grab at the market that will get you through the week! Remember, its so important to eat every 2-3 hours to keep that metabolism going!

My Fav on the Go Snacks:
Veggies and Hummus-Most markets have veggies already cut up (carrots and celery) Just add some cherry tomatoes and your set!
Trader Joe's Pre-sliced Apples
Nathan's Pre-packaged portioned Peanut butter (ummm yumm thank goodness its portioned!)
Trader Joe's Makes Some great whole wheat tabouli and you should see their new small salads, they came out with some great quinoa salads that are more of a snack size (just check for sodium)
Trader Joe's Peeled and ready to eat hard boiled eggs
Quest Bars
Lara Bars
Pre-portioned trail mix

Give some of these a shot!

Tuesday's Tip: Learn to reward yourself with other things besides food! Hey, how about a new pair of shoes?! ooooo a massage or a pretty bouquet of flowers! For so long we have been trained to think that rewards come in food when really they can be so many other things that are just as fun but healthy too. The next time you accomplish something, I challenge you to think of a new way to reward yourself. Believe me, I am sure you can come up with all kinds of things you may have never thought of!

Sunday's Recipe: Summer Vegetable and Chicken Tostadas! Yum! You know me, I love recipes that make for great leftovers and this is definitely one of them. Full of flavor and so healthy!

Ingredients

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
12 ounces chicken breast tenders
1 cup chopped red onion (about 1)
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1 cup chopped zucchini
1/2 cup salsa verde

Friday's Fav: Pretty Little Dish wear! You ask why? I have a thing about small, fun ramekins and espresso cups...not only are they cute but they really help with portion size when I am going to splurge and have a little dessert, chocolate or a fun snack. I love looking for them at World Market and Pier One! Fun and satisfying way to practice portion control! May just have to have some Ben and Jerry's tonight ;)

Wednesday's Workout: Reverse Lunge with a Twist! Loving this Double Dual move! Get those glutes and abs at the same time. Don't be afraid to pick up a heavier medicine ball and really challenge your self.

Stand with your feet shoulder-width distance apart. Grasp a five- to 10-pound medicine ball between both hands, your arms outstretched in front.
Keep your core stable and weight on your heels. Take a large step back with your right foot, planting your foot and then lowering your body until both legs are bent in right angles.
As you sink into the lunge, twist your torso to the left and over your left leg.
Bring your torso back to center, and exhale as you extend your legs. Bring your feet back together, and then repeat with your left leg, this time twisting to the right.

Tuesday's Tip: Never get too hungry!
You make poor decisions when your judgment is compromised. When you're really hungry, you tend to make quick decisions, right? It's hard to hold off until you can find healthy food. As a result, you end up eating anything that's not nailed down, and typically, regretting it. Grabbing everything out of the pantry in sight. Planning meals and snacks works wonders to head off the intense hunger that can do a number on your best intentions to eat right. Always tote healthy snacks, such as an ounce of pistachios, a hard-cooked egg and some whole grain crackers, or Greek yogurt. Keeping your system in rhythm you can maintain your energy and avoid those regretful binges!

Thursday's Q and A : You gotta try Yoga! I'm Not Flexible—Can I Do Yoga? What Do I Need to Begin?

Yes! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Many people think that they need to be flexible to begin yoga, but that's a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons. Come as you are and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible ;) Read more here http://www.staceycooperfitness.com/thursdays-q-and-a-you-gotta-try-yoga-do-i-need-to-be-flexible-how-should-i-begin/

Wednesday's Workout: Give the T**h a Push with this Glute band exercise! Ohh yea you will be feelin this one the next day!

Hold on to either end of your resistance band, and place the center of the band around the sole of your left foot. Place your elbows and knees on the ground so your back is straight.

Hold the band firmly, draw your belly in, and extend your left leg straight behind you. Then draw your knee forward, but don't let it touch the ground.
Repeat for a total of three sets of 15 to 20 reps on each leg.

Tuesday's Tip: Eat with Purpose! I like to use this saying in my everyday life. Everything you consume should have substantial nutritional value. Even when you have a cheat meal, try to gear it towards something with nutritional value, like this quinoa Mac and Cheese. Definitely not sacrificing the flavor either! The more you practice this way of eating the more natural it will become. You want the most nutritional bang for your buck this will fuel your workouts, and be geared towards optimizing your body.

Monday's Motivation: Meal Prep can still be done today! Set yourself up for a healthy week. Meal prepping makes very little room for those quick unhealthy decisions that you may later regret. Lets kick start the week right!

Wednesday's Workout: Lean Long Legs here we come! With these four great moves you will be feeling nice and sore :) You will definitely want to try these for your next leg day!

Lateral Band Walks
Place a mini resistance band just below your knees and stand with your feet hip-width apart, knees slightly bent. Maintaining a tight core, step your left foot out to the side, followed by your right. Continue for 30 to 40 small steps, keeping tension on the band, then repeat, stepping to the right.

Switch Lunge
Step your right leg forward and bend both knees to lower into a lunge. Return to standing, keeping your right foot lifted; immediately step it back and lower into a reverse lunge. Return to start. That's one rep. Do 10 to 12, then switch sides.

Goblet Squat to Calf Raise
Stand with your feet more than hip-width apart, toes turned out slightly, and hold a heavy dumbbell vertically in front of your chest. Bend your knees to lower your body to the floor as far as possible. Push through your heels to stand, then rise up as high as you can onto your toes. Return to start. That's one rep. Do 15 to 20.

Stability Ball to leg Curl
Lie faceup on the floor and place your calves on a stability ball; lift your hips off the ground so that your body forms a straight line from shoulders to heels. Bend your knees and raise your hips to roll the ball toward you. Return to start. That's one rep. Do 15 to 20.
