Refried Black Bean & Veggie Tostadas

This recipe is for my followers that frequently ask me what do I eat other than salads and low carb Monster energy drink as a vegetarian. As I see more people jumping on this 28 day vegan/vegetarian diet bandwagon I’m getting bombarded with questions on what to eat. Being a vegetarian isn’t about giving up your taste buds but more so your gut. Others may tell you different things such as environmental/humane reasons.

I love to cook and being a vegetarian for over 8 years it has made my waist smaller and my pockets fatter. Not only do I eat out less, I cook more which in return I save money that way. Another bonus; I get to cut out processed foods along with meat.

Albeit, if you’re under the impression giving up the dead animals means the same for some of your favorite dishes then here’s a perfect recipe to dispel all that. Everyone loves Mexican food! One of my favorite dishes growing was tostada night, mom would let my brother and I chop up the veggies and build our own. So last night while I was entertaining I thought why not have an interactive dinner. Voilà Refried Black Beans & Veggie Tostadas!

Follow these directions and don’t crap it up!

Refried Black Beans: Melt 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a small saucepan, add the minced garlic, onions and cumin. When continents starts to brown drain canned beans and add to saucepan. Sprinkle with sea salt and cracked black pepper. Leave to a simmer until the beans are tender and the liquid has turned into a thick sauce. Mash the beans leaving some texture and cook over a medium heat, 3 or 4 minutes.

Veggie Mix: Chop up squash, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, celery, bell pepper and white onion adding it to a pan of 1 tablespoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of white vinegar. Cook till tender then add cilantro, cracked black pepper and seasoning salt. Let it simmer and cook down till all the juices are evaporated.

Meatless Crumbles: Open bag in a frying pan, add chopped red pepper, garlic and seasoning salt or fajita salt. Stir-fry for 4 mins.

Bake or fry tortillas, then construct your tostada as desired by adding garden mix lettuce, grated marble cheese, guacamole and salsa.

You’re welcome.

I am 21 years old, currently obtaining a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts dance with a concentration in modern and a minor in business management at Point Park University, Pittsburgh, PA. I am professional a dancer, choreographer, teacher, percussionist and Martial Arts practitioner. I work out seven days a week.

Workout Philosophy: Think like a champion, train like a champion. Championship mindset! How bad do you want it? Don’t start counting the reps until it burns. Dig deeper and DO IT FOR YOU!
1. Commitment
2. Discipline
3. Consistency
4. Faith
5. Heart

Breakfast: 75% of my diet contains organic whole wheat, whole grain, gluten free, and GMO free foods. I start with frosted maple brown sugar wheat cereal then, a sausage and egg sandwich, followed by a protein shake with bananas, strawberries, blueberries and peaches.

Lunch: Subway cold cut combo with all vegetables, kale chips & a fruit smoothie.

Dinner: Dinner varies. Most days I’ll have some type of salad with two-baked chicken breast and one avocado.

Cheat Day: I rarely cheat, but when I do, I go in! I love chocolate, Kit Kats and Reese’s cups.

Diet Trick: No diet tricks. Do it the right way, put in hard work and earn the results, which builds integrity.

Problem Area: Keeping the muscle lean, less bulk.

Key to Discipline: It all starts with you. Being able to give 100% every time despite who’s watching.

Workout Routine: I always begin with a 30min to 1hr cardio. I alternate between the treadmill, elliptical, Jacob’s ladder and swimming. Sometimes I double up. Next I continue with a 25 min stretch to lengthen the muscle followed by my own 1hr Pilate’s/Gyrotonics/Tai Chi/ Yoga series with free weights to maintain high flexibility, strength, and most importantly, to stabilize and stimulate the entire abdominal cavity. After that, I do more advanced core workouts with the TRX suspension training. Then I finish with a deep full body cool down stretch in the steam room and sauna. I work on my core Monday through Sunday.

I’m Richard Bowen (Instagram: @richard_rhucasey81) a fitness fanatic, well more like a fitness nerd. I train not to look good, but to be able to do what I love, to compete in sports at a high level, and be a better athlete and person in general. The aesthetics are just a fringe benefit.

Workout Philosophy: BE who you want to be, DO what you love to do, and you will HAVE the body that you aspire to have.

Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with sausage, tomatoes, red onions, spinach, cheddar cheese topped with salsa. Berry fruit salad (strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries) and a tall glass of OJ.

Lunch: Chipotle chicken burrito bowl (no beans, no rice), extra chicken!

Dinner: Hawaiian rib-eye Steak, braised red cabbage, spinach salad

Cheat Day: Starbucks, tall soy extra whip cream cafe mocha.

Diet Trick: I eat clean (to be specific I follow the Paleo Diet) 80% of the time….Sunday-Thursday when I do most of my training. Then I give myself permission on Friday and Saturday to eat whatever I want. It helps keep my diet more sustainable and my sanity.

Problem Area: I don’t really have a problem area as far as my body. I always tell people before you start your physical transformation, you must first be able to look in the mirror and accept everything about yourself, flaws and all. I do however; wish I was strong and able to lift heavier weights easier.

Key to Discipline: Find something, whatever it is, that you love and JUST DO IT. If you truly love it, you will find yourself pouring in time and effort into it, even when you might not feel as motivated. Then all of a sudden you will find that your body will start to transform to what you love to do. If you run, you start looking like a runner, if you do yoga, you start looking like a yogi etc.

Workout Routine: In the same vein as above, I love a lot of different things, so as a result I do a lot of things to stay in shape. For the most part my workout routine is a combination of crossfit, Olympic weightlifting, yoga and playing volleyball.

Portobello Mushroom Burger  (1)

For me to be in my 8th year of vegetarianism, forever on a diet and afraid of food and its effect on my clothing in general- I eat pretty good. Amongst the many amazing things I am, I’m also a brilliant chef. I’m always proving to people you can lead a healthy life and eat well/better than your average “meateater.”

Last Christmas (yeah that was the last time I remember being hungry) I purchased two vegetarian cookbooks, one being “3 in 1 Vegetarian Cookbook (Favorite Brand Name 3 Books in 1).” Finally putting it to use I was thinspired by the Portobella Mushroom Burger recipe in the sandwiches & wraps section (pg. 224).

Being a fabulous chef like myself is all about putting your own spin it. Instead of the mushroom being the pattie as in the book I made it the buns, opted broiled over stir-fry for cooking the ingredients and I added a few more ingredients than the original recipe.

Here’s what I did…

1. Preheat broiler
2. Cut and slice bell pepper, onion, jalapeno, and tomato.
3. Then place along with Amy’s pattie and mushrooms on cookie sheet wrap with foil.
4. Season with sea salt, pepper corn, basil and seasoned salt. Drizzle olive oil over all. Sprinkle sesame seeds on mushrooms.
5. Broil for 4 minutes per side.
6. Combine mayo, garlic and basil in a bowl. *Lemon juice & white vinegar optional*
7. Assemble burgers spreading the mayo mix on the mushroom-buns, then pattie and veggies with a bit of fresh chopped kale.

Serve with pickles and sweet potato fries.

Eggplant Lettuce Wrap

Every month I put eggplant on my grocery list, and every month I forgot to cook it. Eggplant is one of my favorite things to cook, being a vegetarian I find it to be a brilliant meat replacement as far texture. I’ve use it in fajitas, chili, stew, stir-fry and pasta. Among being delicious in most avatars it  has many benefits such as, improves  blood circulation, lower ‘bad’ cholesterol and  prevent blood clots. As well as, low in calories (35 per cup) rich in nutrients (iron and calcium) and fiber. All of these nutrients are concentrated in the skin of the eggplant, so don’t char, fry or throw it away.

Now that I’m starting a clean diet (as a last stitch effort to cook it before it molds) I came up with a quick, light and easy recipe that scrumptious and healthy- Eggplant Lettuce Wraps.

All you do..

1. Dice eggplant, garlic clove, carrots, black olives and yellow bell pepper, then combine with thinly slice green onion in a frying pan of sesame oil.

2. As ingredients brown add in lemon juice, white vinegar and soy sauce and continue to stir till liquids evaporate.

3 Sprinkle in ginger and red pepper flakes, then plate on washed separated lettuce leaves. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

For sauce I did a honey, lemon juice and soy sauce mixture or you could do the sauce from  Stir-Fry  Cauliflower & Mushroom.

Spring Clean Your Diet.

30 Apr

 

Spring Cleaning

While you may not have attacked that monster of a closet still full with winter crap or organized last season’s shoes or even attempted to spring clean any part of your home it’s never too late to spring clean your gut.   Clean eating is not a new concept but may seem like a new fad diet a la, gluten free or Kale however, those involved with health, fitness or nutrition from competitors to personal trainers and health conscious individuals have been practicing “clean eating” for years.

All it is choosing to eliminate all the crappy, fatty, processed foods and extra additives from your diet.  Basically, you are choosing to eat whole, unrefined foods and lots of fruits and vegetables.

Eating clean isn’t a diet it more of a lifestyle choice whether you’re a meat-eater or vegetarian like myself. Opting for a more “orderly, pure” diet doesn’t mean emptying out your fridge and spending much-needed green on organic greens  the idea is to stay away from anything that may have been altered in any way.

Personally I’m a  label Nazi, I’m always reading the contents of everything I buy (if you can’t pronounce it you shouldn’t eat it) although, like some of you fatties I have my moments where I rather go for something quick and delicious whatever GMO,  steroids or additives are free with purchase.  As summer approach and as I look in the mirror I know it time to get serious about my diet.

No matter how hard you workout If you’re not putting the right food into your body it will all go in vain. A clean diet will result in not only a slimmer figure or more pronounced muscles but increased energy, clearer skin, shinier hair, better sleep and increased mental well –being.

 

These are the steps I’m taking to get back on the clean eating track.

  1. Fasting for 24-72 hours is the perfect way to press the reset button on your intestines. You can do a liquid diet or veggie/fruit diet.  This will help clean your system and prepare you for your new dietary change. Kind of like an oil change, you don’t put new oil in with the old.
  2. Things to eliminate are sugar, over processed foods (precooked, prepackaged or boxed). Especially white flour and sugar, artificial sweeteners, sugary beverages, such as soda, juice, and alcohol (I hear the screams now). Foods with chemical additives like food dyes and sodium nitrite, foods with preservatives and artificial foods, such as processed cheese slices. Also, Saturated fats and trans fats and anti-foods — calorie-dense foods with no nutritional value (pastries, chips, salad dressing, junk food and fried food).
  3. Limit dairy; being a vegetarian as well as cheese being so tasty this is a source of protein and a good source of calcium however, it’s high in calories/fat and cause bloating. It’s best to lower all dairy intake; sour cream, cream cheese, ice cream and milk. Switch to almond or soy milk both has more calcium than milk with few calories, buy egg whites instead of whole eggs and choose block cheese that hasn’t been processed or artificial.
  4. Water, water and more water is one way to jumpstart the eating clean lifestyle because hydrated muscles grow and perform at a higher level, and they are better protected against catabolism (breakdown).  Also, water keeps you energized, flushes out toxins and waste, increases your metabolism and helps your body assimilate vitamins and minerals. To shed some pounds trade in carbonation, soda and juice for cold, crisp water.
  5.  Listen to your body by eating when you’re hungry and don’t wait until you’re in a food coma to stop eating, stop when you’re full, meaning satisfied, not stuffed. Once you feel content  you should be done with your meal. Again, make sure you’re drinking sufficient water throughout the day as feeling hungry could actually be thirst.
  6. Proportion is everything just as when dressing yourself, the wrong size will ruin your entire look. Rely on proper portion size to keep a balance diet and scale. Some people may complain of not losing weight on a clean (or vegetarian) diet however eating small frequent meals 5-6 times per day every 2-3 hours to level blood sugar and prevent hunger will help melt those lbs. If you’re not a big eater 3 well balanced meals 6 hours apart with 8-12 hours in-between dinner and breakfast will help regulate digestive track and metabolism. Don’t overload yourself with food.
  7. A key to a balanced clean diet, knowing the “magic combination”.  Focus on Nutrients, not just calories don’t get too caught up in the numbers game. I know in my body weight-conscious universe, it’s easy to measure everything in terms of calories-in, calories-out. While this approach can help make you thin, it’s not enough to make you healthy. Have two or three servings of healthy fats and fatty acids every day. Lean protein, such as chicken breast, legumes and fish, with complex carbohydrates, including whole grains, fresh fruits and veggies is a key principle of eating clean. Keep your meal simple.
  8. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store as a general rule. The periphery is the natural habitat of the fresh vegetable, meat market, whole-grain baked goods, and the nuts and dried fruits in the bulk bin. Even if you venture into the interior for some staples like olive oil, dark chocolate or frozen veggies keep your blinders on. You’re entering an obese trap of extravagant packaging and manipulative slogans. Few of the items you see in the store’s interior promote good health; it’s a stretch to call most of it “food.”

Stir-Fry Cauliflower & Mushrooms

Welp, Lent is over please don’t go get fat now. I know some of you including myself can’t wait till Easter to pig out on whatever food fat people eat that you sacrificed in the hopes to resurrect your abs. Here’s a savory low calorie dish that will keep you continuing on whatever fat free pilgrimage you are on.

You’re Welcome!

Here’s how you make it!

Preparation:

  1. First, prepare sauce by mixing together all sauce ingredients except cornstarch. Prepare the cornstarch and water mixture in a separate cup or bowl. Set both aside.
  2. Break the head of cauliflower up and chop up mushrooms.
  3. Place 2-3 Tbsp. oil to a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion, half of the garlic, pepper flakes, and cauliflower. Reserve the rest of the garlic for later.
  4. Stir-fry for 5 minutes. When the wok or frying pan becomes dry, add a little of the water (a few Tbsp. at a time) – enough to keep the ingredients frying nicely.
  5. Add 2 Tbsp. soy sauce and continue stir-frying for 5 more minutes, or till cauliflower becomes tender then add mushrooms. Add a little more water when the pan becomes too dry (up to 1/4 cup).
  6. When the cauliflower and mushrooms are soft, add the rest of the garlic plus the sauce. Stir fry to incorporate.
  7. Lastly, in a separate sauce pan or empty wok add the sauce mixture and cornstarch/water mixture. Stir well so that the sauce thickens uniformly (this will only take a minute or less). Remove from heat.
  8. Taste test the cauliflower & mushroom for (sea) salt. If not salty enough, it’s prefect to drizzle the sauce over it. If too salty, add 1 Tbsp. lime juice (or substitute 1 Tbsp. lemon juice).
  9. Now add 3/4 of the fresh basil, stirring briefly to incorporate.
  10. Slide onto a serving platter and sprinkle the rest of the basil over top. Serve with long grain brown rice (stir-fry rice in olive oil, soy sauce and parsley and basil.) Enjoy!

Staying Fit

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.” -Jim Rohn

If you can remember to brush your teeth every day, make your barber or nail appointment there’s no reason for you to skip the gym or give up eating the right things to speed up your metabolism and shrink your waist.

As we settle more into spring it only means summer is getting closers and for those who have just started a new diet/workout regime or reaching a plateau on a current one you’re not alone. I enjoy being able to shop from the front of the rack like the next man. I mean, there’s a certain kind of joy I savor when my ‘fat’ clothes become sleepwear.

However, I too “Skinny-Savant” hate getting there. I hate doing abs until I’m actually doing them; I pretend my 7 a.m. alarm is a part of my dream’s soundtrack to prolong me having to get up to exercise as well as, it’s getting harder and harder to not clean out the fridge with my tongue during my late night craving rampages.

What I do like is being naked during the summer; if you’re having trouble staying committed to your current workout plan and/or finding that needed discipline to eat properly then, here you go.

This is how I keep to my goal of forever skinny.

  1. Explore your devices by getting the most out of your phone other than snapping and posting pics for Instagram. Though pre/post gym selfies can be good motivators to return to the gym tomorrow your phone is more capable than you think. Along with setting daily alarms to workout according to my regular schedule of work, events and errands I have a few apps that keep me on the skinny track. Apps like, Nike +, RunKeeper, Map My Ride, DietPoint and My Diet Dairy Calorie Counter all are great for creating meal plans, food journals and fitness goals. Some apps even let you add friends to compare progress with. Also, you can use your phone’s calculator to count calories, download Google Keep or any Post-It app to make note of your progress or list your must do daily exercises.
  2. A motivation morgue is a must have for constant thinspiration. Whenever someone retweet, share or post a nude, shred or crunch induce thirst trap photo into any of my timelines I screenshot and store it under a folder that I turn to that gives me an excuse not to make up an excuse to skip the gym. I use Pinterest and Tumblr to store low fat recipes, body part specific exercise routines, scantily clad fit models, and fitness sayings/memes that are catalyst I use to stay the course of my summer body. Even a screen saver on my tablet or phone of someone I aim to be like is a great visual motivational tactic. Almost every day I find myself scrolling through endless cataloged images that thinspire me to get dressed and head to the gym.
  3. It’s ok to be selfish with your time and choices. I’ve stated before that sometimes I pick working out over hanging with friends. It may seem like I’m isolating myself to be in shape but when summer comes the island I’ve create will be well worth it when I’m laying sun kissed and barely clothed on an island. Just as you have to make time to do other things make time in your day for a 30- 60 min workout. Not only will it give you more energy to finish the day it’s a great way to decompress from the hectic day. By scheduling in your workouts it’s more likely to become a routine and not a chore. Even make a “to-do list,” if you’re like me you’ll see your list as a challenge and more aroused to get it done. Additionally, create your own space in your home where you can workout. You don’t need a whole room or state-of-the-art equipment. All you need is a mat, fitness ball, a couple of dumbbells, a mirror and resistance band and music to have a designated area for you to do your calisthenics. By having this space eliminates your excuse of gym membership prices or actually have to go to the gym as reasons to not burn fat. Besides, who doesn’t love having their own territory?
  4. If space is limited or cabin fever settles in sign up for classes, events and fitness clubs that will get you out the house. Having a specific unique place to go daily is a brilliant way to regulate your eating/fitness patterns. Albeit, a spin class, yoga, cross-fit camp or marathon or cooking class. These different places will not only give your fitness path variety but spark competition and what better way to kill calories than killing someone else’s self-esteem in the process. Competition is an ace booster to keep you propelling towards a stealthy summer. Join or create biggest loser competition at your gym or workplace. Having something to do will surely keep your mind off food. Plus, the constant weigh-ins is a perfect way to create accountability.
  5. Rewarding yourself with food is for dogs and dolphins on show at SeaWorld. The goal here is to look less like a whale as possible. Instead of that cheat day that you definitely don’t deserve and will excite you to indulge more often enviably running your diet, how about going to the mall instead. Celebrate a new weight goal by buying new workout gear. Over ruining your belly progress with that “reward” burger, treat yourself to some new jeans or bathing suit. Use the money you’ve saved by skipping the fast food line up for something else that will thinispire you to curbing your appetite. New purchases or the expectation of something new always help me pinpoint my motivation.

When all else isn’t enough to keep me focus I keep in mind how good I’m going to look by not giving into temptation. Discipline is a hard thing to develop but that instantly gratification I’d get by eating that fatty food or laying around all day will take at least two weeks to work off.

vegetarian frito chili pie

Back when I was going through a fat spell, you know before Lent when I gave up chips I made more than enough of my amazing Roasted Vegetarian Chili . The genius foodie my mom is suggested I use some of it to make a Frito pie. This is like the perfect guilt free cheat day meal. As well as, one of those awesome things that remind me of home when my mom would make the meat version for my brother and I or when my friends and I would get a pipping hot bag off the ice cream truck (those obese Texas summers.)

Yeah, it’s more than your suggested intake of cheese and greasy corn chips but I’m sure you’ll be in the gym bright and early.

DIRECTIONS:
1. Make the Chili: Follow directions from “Roasted Vegetarian Chili” .

2. Make the topping: Saute the celery, white onion, and green bell pepper in olive oil with a pinch of salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Set aside till pie is done baking.

3. Assemble the Frito Pie: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Plate Fritos in a baking dish, transfer some or all of the chili, layering the chili onto the corn chips. Add shredded pepper jack cheese over the top and bake until the cheese is melted and the chili is bubbling, about 30 minutes. Sprinkle with sliced green onions and sauteed topping- serve immediately.

White Corn Queso

I love dips! Dips are easy and the best comfort food when you’re self-loathing after a poor or skipped workout. I mean if you’re going to be fat at least make it worth the fat filled bites. One of my favorite restaurants in town is Sabor, I absolutely love their “Queso With Corn.” I decided to make it myself and it turned out beyond delicious; spicy, savory and cheesy and of course filling.

All you have to do is…

  • Sauté the mince garlic, diced jalapeno and chopped onion in olive oil until caramelized.
  • Add cubed Velveeta Loaf Queso Blanco and 1/4 cup of water, stir till completely melted.
  • Add can of whole kernel corn.
  • Add cilantro and cook on low to med heat for 2 mins.
  • Serve with blue corn chips.

What’s Your “After-Sex” Food?

14 Mar

Adonis-HorizantalAdonis Basso at Major Paris in his Calvin’s by Rainer Torrado in ‘Horizon’

Let’s be honest the best, most fun and worth doing workout is sex. If you’re doing it right men can burn up 100 calories in the average sex session, while women expend 69 (no pun intended but yup.) The average sexcapade last about 25-57 minutes so, the longer you last the more calories you burn. Note to fellas: BASEBALL BASEBALL BASEBALL! Or grandma in her undies, you’re welcome.

I like getting the most out of my “workouts” and any fitness expert will tell you it’s all in your posture (read: positions.) For example: Use the headboard to help you pull-up on your partner for at least 30 reps, scrap your slow jams and put on your hip hop, Latin or favorite twerking jams to insure a more active rump with your partner, also upbeat tempos compared to sensual tunes will preserve the climax. Another calorie burning move is the plank; work your abdominal as you thrust or isolate for 60 seconds as they thrust back in missionary to make your time on top (or your stomach) more exciting. When adding kink don’t forget that handcuffs are ideal to target those Trapezius. Balance on your partner for 3 sets of 15. Last but not least the thighs; squeeze your partner for 45-50 reps.

Now that you’ve worked up a sweat I’m sure you’ve worked up an appetite as well. This brings me to the purpose of this post. What’s your after-sex food? Are you considering the right food when the blood finally rushes back to your head? Yeah, the other head.

I always get a hankering for a tomato, lettuce and whole wheat tortilla wrap with a dollop of mayo but I will settle for a crunchy natural peanut butter whole wheat tortilla and a bottle of SmartWater. Because being forever thin is the ultimate goal I can’t cock up **giggle** my hard work on and off the mat with a cookie, bag of chips or a smoked ham like many of you butterballs.

Do you consider your after-sex meal choices? If not you should. A protein bar, fruit smoothie or cinnamon raisin bagel are prefect recovery foods that are low in calories, filling and will best help your muscles and liver replenish to keep your performance from suffering during your next sex workout.

After a “workout”, your body’s stores of glycogen — the carbohydrate that is stored in the muscles and liver — are depleted. That’s where the concept of “recovery foods” comes in. Since your blood flow is increased and your muscle cells are more sensitive to insulin right after sex the best way to replenish your glycogen stores is to consume carbohydrate, protein-rich foods within the 30 minutes that follows the sex. Avoid high in sugar foods because, it’s a sure way to pack on the Lbs. Other quick easy snacks are popcorn, Gatorade, grapes and instance oatmeal. The latter two being good sleep aids.

Make every meal count, I mean we workout to look great naked which is insane to destroy it with delivery after the deed is done. You do want them to see you naked again, right?
