It's officially Fall! And I am craving all things pumpkin!
A pumpkin scone from Starbucks sounds delish but SO not worth it once you see all the artificial ingredients!
These muffins are healthy and meal plan approved, and best part, they are DELISH!
What you'll need:
For all you container counters, it is 1 purple and 1 blue

These chocolate peanut butter cups are delicious and the perfect alternative to all the Halloween candy full of extra unhealthy ingredients!
These cups have THREE ingredients!
1. Coconut Oil
2. Smooth Peanut Butter (or any kind of nut butter of your choice)
3. Chocolate protein powder (I used Vegan Chocolate Shakeology)
Place 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds until the coconut oil is liquified (my coconut oil was already liquid..AZ heat! lol So I needed more than 2 Tablespoons...I'm an eyeball it kind of girl anyways). Stir in 4 Tablespoons of chocolate protein powder.
In a muffin tin or mini muffin tin, divide the chocolate sauce evenly between 6-8 spots in the tin. Place in the freezer for 5 minutes.
Pull the muffin tray out of the freezer. Place a dollop of peanut butter of top of each frozen chocolate disk.
Repeat Step 1 and use this to pour on top of the peanut butter layer
Place the muffin tin back in the freezer and leave in there for at least 30 minutes. I found 45 minutes was perfect.
I used a pointy knife on the edges and they slipped right out of the tin easily!
Store in the freezer and try to eat only one :)
The Ultimate Reset was such a life changing experience for me. 21 Days of eating the cleanest I have ever eaten in my life and meal prepping every single meal for both me and my husband.
Was it hard work?
Did I want to give up at times?
Was it worth it?
YES A MILLION TIMES YES
Watch my emotional video on my year long journey that leads to my plant based life and weight loss
So what is the Ultimate Reset?
It is a disciplined program of clean eating and daily supplements for 21 days.
It is not easy, but the results are worth it.
If you have been struggling with eating poorly, too much fast food, processed food, too much caffeine and alcohol...this is a great way to break those habits.
What do I have to do?
Included in your kit you will get a complete day by day guide. The guide will tell you what to eat every single day for 21 days. You have to prep and make all the food. You take the supplements when they tell you and drink a ton of water. As well as power greens and a detox drink.
You will not be working out. Maybe a walk or light yoga if you want, but that is it.
What are the benefits of the Ultimate Reset?
Restore your body to it's original "factory settings"
How much weight will I lose?
Now remember this is not necessarily a weight loss program. The goal is to RELEASE your body of toxins and RESTORE it back to normal.
If you are already eating VERY clean or a plant based/vegan diet, you may not see the scale move a lot. But you will FEEL it in your body and mood, for sure!
If you have fallen into a trap of poor eating, your results could be huge! Most people lose 8-20 lbs in the 21 days.
MY ULTIMATE RESET RESULTS
13.8 pounds lost
June 3rd-June 23rd
23.8 pounds lost
June 3, 2017- September 17, 2017
After the Ultimate Reset ended June 23rd, I continued to eat vegan/plant based and went on to lose an additional 10 pounds!
Look at the difference in my complexion! In my smile! In my waist! NO MORE BLOAT! No more tummy aches! No more puffiness! I am eating food that makes my body perform to its highest standards and I feel amazing!!

I've been on the 21 Day Fix now for 2 Rounds and now I'm getting read to start my 3rd Round. Round 1 was just trial and error figuring out what worked, what I liked and how to make sure I fit all my containers in each day or didn't go over. Round 2 I was able to be more focused and plan more as I knew what meals I liked and what worked for me to eat at work and at home but by the end of Round 2 honestly I was pretty sick of some of the meals I had been making. So as I prep for Round 3, I was on a search to find 21 Day Fix casseroles and meals (Pinterest and Beachbody to the rescue!!)

Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese-
21 Day Fix Containers: 2 Yellow, 1/2 Green, 1 Blue
Total Time: 1 hr. 16 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: 61 min.
Yield: 10 servings, about 1½ cups each or 1 green container on 21 Day Fix
1 lb. dry whole wheat macaroni
1 tsp. olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium red bell peppers, chopped
3 cups cubed butternut squash
1¾ cups low-sodium organic chicken broth
1 cup low-fat (1%) milk
2 Tbsp. low-fat (1%) plain Greek yogurt
1 cup shredded Gruyere (or Swiss) cheese
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Sea salt and ground black pepper (to taste; optional)
Nonstick cooking spray
Finely chopped fresh parsley (for garnish; optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
2. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
3. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
4. Add onion and bell peppers; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until onion is translucent. Set aside.
5. Combine squash, broth, and milk in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium; gently boil for 22 to 25 minutes, or until squash is tender.
6. Place squash mixture in a blender or food processor; cover with lid and kitchen towel. Blend until smooth.
7. Combine squash mixture, macaroni, onion mixture, yogurt, and cheeses. Season with salt and pepper if desired; mix well.
8. Place macaroni mixture in a 13 x 9-inch ceramic or glass baking dish that has been coated with spray. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until sauce is bubbling.
9. Garnish with parsley if desired (I didn't)
Tip 1: Add a protein to it! I like to add taco turkey meat or chicken to it!
Tip 2: Blend small batches of hot liquids in blender or food processor since they expand during the blending process, therefore decreasing the chance of overflowing. And be sure to hold tight to that blender! It wants to explode because of the heat!
Order the 21 Day Fix
The 21 Day Fix is such an easy, simple way to track and control your food intake. But it does take some planning and organizing to have success. Here are my tips, tricks, cheat sheets and sample meal plans!
Food Container Cheat Sheet
Besides using the 21 Day Fix iPhone app, this little cheat sheet right here is my saving grace! I have it saved on my phone in my photos at all times! You never know when you are at the grocery store and need to know "what container would this fall under?!"
Grocery Shopping- PLAN PLAN PLAN
I have never been the kind of person who can go shopping once a week for the whole week. It just doesn't work for us and our lifestyle. So I often go grocery shopping on one of my days off and then again later in the week. But the one thing I ALWAYS do is have a list. When I can, I try to use these grocery shopping lists below but in a pinch I'll make a note in my iPhone or even text myself my grocery list!
Meal Plan- PLAN PLAN PLAN (catching onto the planning theme ;)
My first round of 21 Day Fix I was extremely successful and I loved my results and I strongly believe this is because I planned out my first week on an Excel spreadsheet. I am on Plan B so here is a sample 2 days:
