At POUND, we like to LOVE LOUDER! How do we do that? We eat with heart healthy ingredients so our hearts are as strong and as loud as our classes are! This month we’re lacing up our problem solving boots and attempting the impossible. Get ready for MIXTAPE MEALS!
15 heart healthy ingredients, 15 recipes+, under $70. No waste, low cost, endless ideas.
It all started the first week of January. The new years resolutions were starting, but the SAME issues were coming up. We deal with a lot of them ourselves and we listen closely to our team at POUND HQ. “WHAT do I eat?” “WHEN do I eat it?” “WHY am I eating it?” “And HOW do I attempt to try new things without breaking the bank and wasting a TON of food?” We all know most of the answers to these questions. Most of them can be found in the BALANCE Nutrition Guide. But there’s a difference between knowing and doing. The constant issue wasn’t the question of WHAT is good for me, but rather HOW do I make it an every day reality? How, when I’m feeling lazy on Thursday night and want to make a pizza run, do I make sure that I have all the ingredients I need to make a simple, quick, healthy and delicious meal?
So, we decided to challenge ourselves. We’re taking this month to really get in there and MIX things up. We’re committed to making the solution a reality for us and our team.
We chose 15 HEART Healthy ingredients (because Valentine’s Day!). Over the course of the next 28 days, we’re going to attempt to create at least 15 recipes+ with only 15 ingredients – and we ask you to join along! Create your own recipes and hashtag #mixtapemeal for the chance to be reposted on our instagram at @poundfit!
Side Note: we didn’t include household items like salt, pepper, oils + vinegars, and condiments. Feel free to use what you have in your cabinet to add spice to your #mixtapemeal.
On a serious note: Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States. It’s important to stay mindful of the things we put inside our bodies, where they come from and how they effect our health!
