Lean Body Cookbook and Meal Planning Guide by The Get In Shape Girl

Hi Friends!

We are approaching the end of 2014 and I have two questions for you.. Did you accomplish your fitness and health goals for the year? If so, how / If not, why?

As a fitness and health fanatic and since I have a page on facebook geared towards the two, one thing I encounter all the time are questions about nutrition and where to start. It seems like there’s so much information out there telling us conflicting things to help us lose body fat, but what works for the individual? How are you supposed to know what worked for someone else will work for you?

I am here to tell you that nutrition plans are NOT a one size fits all deal.

I want to help you lose fat, build lean muscle and achieve the lean body that you deserve so you can actually reach those goals with EASE in 2015. Check out the Lean Body Cookbook & Meal Plan below!!

xoxo

Sweet Potato Pancakes [recipe from the Lean Body Cookbook]

Quick question… What did you have for breakfast today?

If you are like me you get tired of eggs and oats day in and day out so I was excited to see this recipe from The Get In Shape Girl.  Check it out…

Sweet Potato Pancakes

“These are very portable and have come with me on several trips out of town for breakfast.  They are also a perfect post-workout snack since they have lots of carbs and protein. I imagine these to be something I would want to bring with me if I were going away for a weekend and was gonna workout on my trip or something to take with me to snack on during a Crossfit competition to keep me fueled.” – The GISG

sweet-potato-pancakes-199x300

Ingredients:

2 whole eggs

4oz sweet potato, cooked

1/2 cup plain 2% greek yogurt

1/2 tsp liquid stevia

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

Cinnamon to taste

Directions:

Mix in a food processor or by hand, thoroughly, until even.  You could even mash these together with your hands.  Separate into 2 – 4 pancakes, depending on how many you want, just make sure they are no more than a half inch thick to begin because they will take longer to cook through.

Place on frying pan over medium heat and let sit for 3 – 4 min before carefully flipping onto the other side.    You very well may have to flip for 2 more minutes on each side to ensure they cook all the way through but do not burn on the outsides.

Nutrition:

*Makes 1 serving*

Cals – 270

Carbs – 30g

Fat – 7g

Protein – 23g

The Get In Shape Girl’s newest cookbook, the Lean Body Cookbook and Meal Planning Guide is available now. These are 41 recipes for breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner that are completely healthy and unprocessed foods.  Not only that, but she actually teaches you the best foods to eat and when to help you lose fat.

Now… it is time to make these bad boys :)

my love of fitness

 As some of you may already know, not only am I a wedding planner… but I am also a huge fitness fanatic.  I live/breathe/eat the healthy lifestyle.

My bestie Ashley Scott “The Skinny Fit Girl”  is also a fitness fanatic (check out her blog HERE) and we did a photo shoot together that you will see in some of these photos. It was amazeballs.  She also did a little “Fit Follow Friday” on yours truly!

I think the first question people ask me is, “how did you get started in the world of health and fitness?”

I first started my health journey back in April of 2011. I realized there was so much more to life than just working and partying. I needed a hobby that would make me feel good, keep me busy and give me more of a purpose in life. I started looking at fitness models on facebook and was immediately fascinated by them and what they do. I never realized there that is a whole world out there dedicated to fitness and healthy eating. Every day I would look at those girls and think to myself, “What can I do to become one of them?” So, I first started my journey on the treadmill because unfortunately, all I really knew about fitness was cardio. I started running a few times a week from April-September and lost the few initial pounds I wanted. Then I learned about the best kept secret, LIFTING WEIGHTS! I picked up my first real set of weights in September of 2011 and got some help from The Get in Shape Girl for a few months (check her out).

I have now become a lean mean weight lifting machine and have never looked back.  I have competed in two NPC shows, done some fitness photo shoots and have two more coming up in July! I have so many goals that I want to achieve for my “fitness future” and with my drive and determination along with the help/support from friends and family; I cannot wait to accomplish them all!

**I am not a professional but I love to give tips and advice!**

my [go to] snacks

Some people may know that I have a fitness facebook page called, “Leah Potosky Fitness”.  I am an NPC bikini competitor and an avid clean eater.  The biggest question that I get asked is, “what are some of my go to healthy snacks?”

Check below to find out some of my favs…

Image

 frozen berries

Image

rice cakes with topping

Image

roasted chickpeas

Image

zucchini chips

Image

sweet potato fries

Image

raw almonds

Image

quest bars

Image

protein shake

I. love to freeze raspberries or blueberries… these give me a pop of energy during the day.

2 My favorite rice cake toppings include:

nut butter

hummus with cucumber

pizza sauce and shredded almond cheese

nut butter and enjoy life chocolate chips

nut butter with banana

homemade jam

greek yogurt and berries

avocado and shredded chicken

3. I like to mix my roasted chickpeas with cumin, paprika and olive oil

4. I do these in the oven instead of a dehydrator and it still turns out quite crispy!

5. I usually top my sweet potato with cinnamon… I might try nut butter next… yum!

6. I would say raw almonds and cashews are my #1 grab and go snack. So simple yet so delicious.

7. Quest bars are so delicious and packed full of protein.  I like to eat them right after my workout with a piece of fruit.

My top 5 favorite flavors below:

– White Chocolate Raspberry

– Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

– Lemon Cream Pie

– Cinnamon Roll

– Cookies and Cream

8. Right now my “go to” protein shake is a scoop of About Time Vanilla Whey Isolate protein

and a cup of mixed frozen berries with water.  Totally fresh and totally delicious.
