January Playlist For My Cycle Class


The other day I had 4 people stop me after cycle class to sing to me.  I mean do their best to sing to me.  It happens quite frequently.  Ira what’s that song you know the one with the electro beat. It goes like “booooom bammmmmm ga ga, shot you down.” I always love to see how far they will go with their singing in order to get me to understand what song it is they are referring to.  Just a little entertainment and a good laugh for me as well as them when they realize they are signing to me in the locker room at the gym.

Well why don’t I give you a break from trying to sing to me and share my current playlist? I even have included the itunes link so you can get it quicker!

Coconut Lime ‘Rice’ (psst it’s really cauliflower)

In your 30 day flip groups one thing we hear a lot of is “OMG that cauliflower rice is off the hook” My response “I know we have made it a bazillion times.” Seriously we have. It is from one of your favorite cookbooks Against All Grain by Danielle Walker.  When you go to make it just trust me double it up.  We have put curry chicken, “burrito”  ingredients, and stir frys on top of this “rice” 

1 Head organic cauliflower, trimmed and cut into florets
2 TBSP coconut oil
1/4 C Coconut milk
1 TBSP chopped cilantro
1 TBSP fresh lime juice
1/4 tsp sea salt
Place the cauliflower in a food processor fitted with the grating attachment and process, until chopped into ‘rice grains’.Pick out any large pieces that passed through the grater. Alternatively, grate the cauliflower with a cheese grater.
*We used our Vitamix for this (only 1 cup at a time on low).
Heat the oil in a large skillet  or wok over med-high heat
Add the riced cauliflower and saute for 5 minutes.
Add the remaining ingredients and continue to cook for 20 minutes until the cauliflower is tender.

2 Words That Will Change Your Life.

What if you surrounded yourself with people who would encourage you to finish what you started?

The implications of COMPLETING or FINISHING what you start in life are HUGE.

In our 30 day flip program we are discussing the POWER behind the WORD completion.  We are holding eachother accountable to learn how to complete or finish things we start in life.  What if you learned slipping up did not have to mean giving up. What if you learned to get back up and finished what you started? Our 30 day flip program is NOT just all about food, it is about learning to have a powerful mindset.  That we can choose to finish something we started.

I encourage you to surround yourself with people that will help you see things through to completion in your life.

Have a blessed day!
