Chocolate Eggnog Shakeology Recipe

Easy Chocolate Eggnog Shakeology Recipe

You could make this with regular Chocolate Shakeology or Vegan Chocolate Shakeology. Use unsweetened almond milk if you prefer your drinks less sweet. I used regular almond milk and it was almost too sweet for me. I considered using nutmeg,  but I was feeling a bit lazy and just grabbed the cinnamon sitting close by. You could also use coconut milk eggnog or even substitute the real deal ;) Just be aware of how much you are using because liquid calories can add up fast.

It is a stand alone program that will be great for weight loss and toning.

How does the program work?

• A 90-day extreme fitness program designed to get you ripped in just 30 minutes a day. Each one of the accelerated 30-minute workouts has been uniquely developed to produce the greatest physical change in your body, in the most efficient way.

• 90 Day Program – Three 30-Day Blocks

16 30-Minute P90X-style workouts

• 6 Days a Week

• All you need is weights/bands, a way to do chin-ups, and 30 minutes/day.

• Comes with a fitness guide

• 90 day workout calendar to guide you through the 90 days. 

• IMPORTANT NOTE – P90X3 is NOT a sequel to P90X or P90X2, nor is it a graduate program.

• Users do not have to be in great shape or need to complete P90X or P90X2 in order to do P90X3.

X3 Schedule Choices

CLASSIC – Traditional balance of cardio and resistance, will help you gain muscle and lose fat

LEAN – Designed for those who prefer a more toned look, where you’ll target functionality, mobility and cardio over resistance training

MASS – For those looking for bulk over getting ripped, you will focus on more resistance training, while incorporating a higher caloric intake into your diet

DOUBLES – As Tony would say, this schedule is for workout “psychos” who have the ability to push through two workouts per day

Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls with Brown Rice

Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls with Brown Rice 

Try this lower calorie easy version of stuffed cabbage rolls. By omitting the sausage and ground beef, you are significantly reducing the fat and cholesterol in the recipe and making it heart healthy. It's great for those wanting to eat cleaner, lose a few pounds and put healthier food on the table. Plus, who doesn't love an easy recipe! I know I do! And your whole family will love it! This would be considered eating clean because you are eating whole foods. It makes a lot too, so it's easy to make and you can enjoy it for days.

1 pkg ground turkey
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 stalks celery, chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small-med head of cabbage, chopped
1 large can of diced tomatoes (we like more, so I added another large can)
8 oz of crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce (or 2 large cans small diced tomatoes)
1/2 cup water (the cabbage will create more water as it cooks)
1/2 tsp black pepper
pinch of hot pepper flakes (optional)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp thyme

 Brown rice, prepared according to bag


In a med to large stock pot, heat oil and saute onions and celery until opaque. Add in turkey and cook until done. Add in garlic for about 2 minutes. Add in remaining ingredients and simmer for one hour. Serve with 1/3-1/2 cup brown rice. Make the rice in a separate pot according to package instructions.

For a paleo friendly version: Omit brown rice.

Modifications for pressure cooker:

Saute meat and onion with tsp salt, pepper and garlic powder (you can leave out the garlic and celery to save time. It will still be good) in pressure cooker. Add in remaining ingredients. Select soup setting on Instapot and allow to naturally release steam. Should take about an hour total (10 min heat up, 20 min cook, 20 min natural release). Serve over brown rice.
