21 Day Fix Extreme Cajun Zucchini Noodles, peppers & Blackened Chicken

Thursday, June 30, 2016

21 DFX Recipes. Cajun Zucchini Noodles, peppers and blackened chicken.

Guys, SERIOUSLY! I mean, HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! This recipe is to die for. If you feel like the 21 Day Fix Extreme is too restrictive for you, think again! This recipe is a perfect example of thinking outside the box and getting creative in the kitchen. Oh and it requires SO FEW ingredients!

21 Day Fix Extreme approved and I'm eating this on my Extreme days for the Countdown to Competition Plan!

Adapted from this Cajun "pasta" recipe.

To make this recipe vegan simply remove the chicken!

Serves 2


8oz chicken breast
Balsamic vinegar (optional) or use Blackened Chicken recipe
2 medium zucchini squash
1 red, 1 green and 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tsp cajun seasoning (adjust depending on the amount of heat you like but this is moderate)
1 tsp Salt
Pepper to taste


  1. Marinade chicken in Balsamic Vinegar for a couple of hours or overnight and then cook on a grill pan or barbecue. The extra charring add's great flavor! OR prepare chicken using Blackened Chicken Recipe. Cut into bite size pieces.
  2. Using a spiralizer or julienne peeler, create noodles from the zucchini's. Place noodles in a large msh strainer, sprinkle generously with salt and toss to combine. Allow to sit over a bowl for at least 30 minutes to release moisture.  Rinse with water and pat dry.
  3. Melt coconut oil in a pan and add your peppers. Sautee until cooked through and slightly charred. About 5-8 mins.
    • Side Note: You can add a variety of veggies here to your liking.  Mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, spinach etc.
  4.  Add zucchini noodles and cajun seasoning and cook for 2-3 minutes. Season with black pepper and serve.

YOU could be on the next 21 Day Fix Extreme Infomercial!!!!

Friday, June 24, 2016


I am literally jumping up and down with excitement!

NEVER before has Beachbody opened a test group to the PUBLIC that people can join for the chance to get on a Beachbody infomercial!

Autumn Calabrese and our CEO Carl Daikeler are hosting a private group on Facebook for those who want to do the 21 Day Fix Extreme with a chance to be on the next infomercial for the program. All you have to do is join the group and complete the 21 Day Fix Extreme program before July 27th.

This is SOOOOOO exciting! On top of that I too have a private group opening on Monday where I will be personally mentoring people through the 21 Day Fix regular and 21 Day Fix Extreme programs.

  • Lose 5-15lb
  • 21 Days
  • 30 minutes a day

It's no secret that my 30th birthday is coming up and I've been trying Body Beast for the last couple of months, but definitely have been over indulging with food and while I'm building muscle I feel totally fluffy right now. Personally I NEED this challenge to help me with cutting fat and getting where I want to be.

Extreme Fitness, Simple Nutrition, Serious Results

Will you join me? 

Together we can be accountability partners through either the 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme and keep each other on track!

It's 21 days people. You can do anything for 21 days. Best part about this challenge is that Beachbody has BOTH of these programs on sale this month, and you've about a week left to get them.

I checked into the special 21 Day Fix Infomercial challenge and came across Tanya. She started the 21 Day Fix Extreme 5 days ago and shared her progress photo's. She graciously allowed me to share them as well!

5 FREAKING DAYS! This just blew my mind!

This is truly a special opportunity and I cannot WAIT to start. If you have been wondering about either of these programs now is seriously the time to ask about them.

Create Your Own Destiny- Sneak Peak into Coaching with the #1 Team in Beachbody!

Friday, June 17, 2016

For a long time I was paralyzed by fear.

-> I was too afraid to take a chance.
-> Too afraid to put myself out there.
-> Too afraid of judgement.
-> Too afraid I would fail.

But what scared me even more?

-> Being stuck in a career that brought me little joy or excitement.
-> To have my schedule for the rest of my working life dictated by someone else.
-> To have to always ask permission to take time off.
-> To miss out on amazing opportunities because I didn't have enough vacation time, or the fear of losing my job.
-> To never be able to call the shots myself.
-> To constantly live paycheck to paycheck.
-> To miss out on my future children's milestones because maternity leave in the USA SUCKS!

I stood in the shadows for a long time, watching other Beachbody coaches succeed with their health and fitness goals, while I failed.  Watched them grow into strong, successful leaders surrounded by amazing people willing to take the chance and risk failure by working on their dreams. Then I decided enough was enough. I wanted more. I wanted my chance.

At some point we need to start believing in ourselves, because if we don't we'll be dreaming about what we're NOT getting for the rest of our lives. We'll continue to work to build other people's dreams rather than our own.

Being a coach isn't easy. I will be the FIRST to tell you that.

-> It requires hard work.
-> It requires time, every single day. Even if all you can commit in the beginning is an hour. That's how it all started for me.
-> It requires a commitment to working on your own personal health and fitness goals (who doesn't need that!).
-> It requires being willing to fail forward. Every single one of us coaches has failed at something in this business. You have to give yourself time to learn and grow and continue to try something new. --> That's how we fail forward. That's how we continue to improve.
-> It requires a willingness to LEARN and GROW!

But the rewards, are worth every second you invest. What I get from this, EVERY DAY, is hope, happiness and the opportunity to have an impact on people's lives. I smile every day, because every day I see someone who has achieved another milestone, whether that's in their fitness or in their career.

If you've ever wondered if coaching could be a possibility for you, want to know more about how to get started and what training and resources we provide to help you have every opportunity to be successful, then join me on Tuesday, June 21st for a 1 day online sneak peak into coaching event on Facebook!

I am looking for women:

-> Who are passionate about Health and Fitness or are wanting to work towards a healthier lifestyle
-> Who would LOVE the flexibility of being able to work from home (or anywhere!)
-> Who want to contribute more to their family's or their own income
-> Who dream of leaving the daily 9-5 grind
-> Who want to make a positive difference in their life and the lives of others
->Who are motivated, hard working and willing to make short term sacrifices for long term gains.

If you've ever wondered if coaching could be a possibility for you, want to know more about how to get started and what training and resources we provide to help you have every opportunity to be successful, then join me on Tuesday, June 21st for a 1 day online sneak peak into coaching event on Facebook!

Let go of the fear that is holding you back and take the first step towards seeing what possibilities are out there!

Comment below, "I'M IN!" and then join the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1177403345645305/
