Stay on Track During Labor Day Weekend with these Simple Tips

September 1, 2018

 

Plan ahead – Know where you’ll be spending the weekend, so you know how to prepare for it. Make sure to have a lean, healthy snack before hosting or attending any social gathering, so that you’ll be less likely to indulge and make poor food choices later on.

 

Bring your own food – If you’re attending a get-together where others are bringing food, consider bringing your own dish to add. For example, bring a platter of colorful roasted vegetables or a dip that’s low in fat and calories for fruits, veggies, etc .

        Check out these delicious plates to bring to any get-together this weekend!

Don’t hover over the table – Many people end up standing and sitting around the table to snack while they socialize. Avoid lingering where the food is, and join the conversation and fun somewhere else.

 

Limit your alcohol consumption – Alcoholic beverages can be loaded with calories. While it’s okay to indulge a little bit during the holiday weekend, be sure to monitor and set a limit on the amount of alcohol you’re drinking.

 

Hydrate – Stay hydrated! If water seems a bit too dull, try flavored infusers or flavored ice cubes to give it extra taste. Drinking plenty of water will also reduce hunger, give you energy and boost your metabolism. 

 

Beware of the “extras” – These are your dips, snacks, condiments, etc. Dressings, barbecue sauces, spreads and all of those extra toppings can definitely pack on calories to any dish or meal. 


Get active – Instead of making food the center of your holiday, go out with some friends and family and get active together! You might try a short camping trip, a visit to the beach, a team sport or even kayaking. The holiday weekend is a great time for trying different activities!

 

Enjoy the weekend – Remember to have fun! Celebrating the holiday is a great way to boost your happiness and catch a break from all of your hard work. Don’t be afraid to celebrate!

Yes, you read that correctly, PROTEIN PIZZA CRUST!! 

 

This recipe is simple, delicious and takes care of that craving when all you want is cheesy pizza while focusing on your health goals.

 

Ingredients:

 

2 Eggs (4 Eggs for coconut flour)

1 1/4 c. Blanched Almond Flour

1/4 c. Vanilla 1st Phorm Level-1 Protein Powder

1 c. Boiling Water

4 tbs. Psyllium Husk Powder

1 tbs Grated Parmesan

1 tbs Italian Spices 

2 tsp Baking Powder

1/2 tsp Salt

 

Directions:

 

Preheat oven to 375*

 

Combine all dry ingredients and mix until blended.

 

Add eggs and mix until well combined. 

 

Add boiling water and mix until dough thickens and start to stick to the beaters. Place ball on greased baking sheet. 

 

Spray a piece of parchment with oil and place on top of the dough to help spread without sticking. 

 

Use a rolling pin (or your hands) to speak the dough into a 16-inch round pizza. 

 

Let dough raise 2-3 times its size to make the thickness one third of what you want the final pizza to be.
