Easy Mix and Match Frittata with Deliboy Delivery

Easy Mix and Match Frittata with Deliboy Delivery

When live is go go go, sometimes a little help from a meal delivery service, a boyfriend who can cook (thanks Ray!), and some creativity is just what you need!

Mix and Match + Deliboy Delivery = A Fabulous Frittata Creation!

If you work late, are a mom taxi or just don’t feel like planning a full on meal, having the Clean Cut tools in your refrigerator can take the edge off for sure.   We have been using Deliboy delivery and it has been a life changer.  Clean foods, that can be ordered a la carte or as meals are delivered every Monday and you can mix and match these healthy options. 

Caren came home to this gem last night:

Roasted Veggie & Steak Frittata
  • About 2 cups of your Deliboy roasted veggies or any roasted veggies
  • About 5 ounces of Deliboy delicious steak (cut into 1 inch pieces) or steak of your choice
  • 6-7 full eggs (whisked)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil for the skillet
  • A sprinkle of grated parmesan cheese (maybe 2 teaspoons all in)
  • A sprinkle of gluten free panko breadcrumbs (maybe 2 teaspoons)

Heat oven to 400 degrees

  1. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat on stove top, add the already roasted veggies and steak and heat through.
  2. Pour the whisked eggs over the veggies evenly
  3. Let cook (do not fiddle with it)
  4. Once the sides start to bubble or pull away from the pan add the cheese and breadcrumbs evenly across the top
  5. Now it’s time to put it in the oven.
  6. Bake for about 10 min, watching it to see if top looks cooked. Once it does set oven to broil and crisp it up for another 2-3 min.
  7. Cut pizza slices and serve with a hot sauce or jalapeño sauce (Trader Joe’s has a great one)

This makes 2-3 serving.  This was so silly good and satisfying and did we mention EASY!

How To Lose Weight Without Counting Calories, macros or Weighing Your Food!

How To Lose Weight Without Counting Calories, macros or Weighing Your Food!

Have you tried counting calories, macros, weighing your food?

Did you stick with it?  We know we can’t, so we have designed a foolproof way to take the guesswork out.  We are always exploring new methods, testing them to see if the science is real and if it’s really sustainable.  Here is what we’ve learned.

It has to be REAL.  Your body knows what to do with real sugar, real cream, real butter.  We can’t trick our bodies or out exercise fake food. It’s amazing how every system talks to each other.  Why not give it the right signal?

Let’s erase the idea that the food label always tells the truth.  If it says 10 grams of fat would you eat it?, NO WAY right? Well what kind of fat? What is the serving? What are the sugars?  Where do the sugars come from, where does the fat come from?

Let’s start fresh!

GOOD FAT BURNS FAT, truth!  The science proves it and we’ve tested it.  Just this year I (Caren) added in more fat and guess what….I got a bit leaner because  it’s the truth. Yes there is such thing as too much good fat but at Clean Cut we balance it for you and take out the guesswork. Good fat mixed with processed foods doesn’t work. Just because some of the time you are good doesn’t erase the choices that are bad. It’s about being consistent. Consistency is key.

Once you can trust that the real deal is best for you the closer you are to cleaning out your systems and making your body work like the machine it was meant to be.

Ask yourself the question below…

What kind of mayo or coffee creamer do you have in your fridge?  If is says light or fat free replace it with REAL mayo (olive oil mayo is also great) or all natural vanilla creamer (yes it has sugar but like we said your body can process real sugar).  Before you throw out the light version compare the nutrition labels of both. Look at the entire label. The calories, fat, sugar. Now look at the ingredients. Which one has a longer list, which one do you understand everything that is listed (or mostly everything).  Here is a nugget or pivot to live by… If you can’t understand it neither can your body. Just because it says it has less calories and less sugar doesn’t mean once it’s inside your body it reacts that way. ANYTHING that is FOREIGN to your system will be and we mean will be STORED AS FAT.  Our bodies know what to do with real food, even real sugar so your tip this week (PIVOT) keep it real!

Now do you think Clean Cut is the new lifestyle for you?  Real food is just that simple and just that good…

A Green Juice A Day Can Aid In Keeping The Doctor Away

A Green Juice A Day Can Aid In Keeping The Doctor Away

Can a green juice a day keep…away?

Is it another craze or another Clean Cut tool?

After research and having some of our members test it out it seems when adding in the right kind of green juice daily you are increasing your daily potassium up to 36% and your vitamin A up to 20% which aids in weight loss, increases energy, creates better blood flow, helps the body use insulin correctly, helps boost the immune system and supports eye and brain function.

So what is the right kind of green juice?

NATURAL, NO ADDED   SUGAR or SODIUM

You may see the cold pressed version in any health store or even at Trader Joe’s.  When you see the settlement at the bottom of the bottle you have the real stuff. Always read the ingredients.  It should look something like, Cucumber, Kale, Celery, green apple (it’s Ok!), lemon and maybe ginger and other spices like turmeric.

When making it yourself or at the counter of a health store you have full control over what goes in it.  The greener the better, maybe ½ the green apple (just to save some of the sugar grams for later) you can also add in ¼ of an avocado to thicken it up and add some of the GOOD FAT (making this juice even more powerful)

It’s almost impossible to eat the amount of daily greens needed each day.  This power packed juice helps get you there, flooding you body with amazing vitamins and mineral.

 

This green juice below is a great starter juice.  Get creative and add this Clean Cut Tool to your daily regime.  You can use an emulsion blender like a Vitamix or Ninja to emulsify the ingredients.  Then add water to your desired consistency.

  • A HUGE handful of kale or spinach
  • Romaine (when cleared by the government for sure)
  • 3-4 celery sticks
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Thumb full of fresh ginger
  • ¼ of an avocado
  • Parsley (optional)
  • ½ green apple (optional)
Use it to start you day or as a filler throughout,  However you get it in, IT WORKS!
6 Tips For A Guilt Free Thanksgiving

6 Tips For A Guilt Free Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving From Clean Cut!  

Thanksgiving kicks off the start of the holiday season.  Eating, drinking, parties, shopping, more eating, skipping workouts, etc.  You know the drill.  This time of year that is about sharing, caring and love sometimes can turn into a stressful mess!  But how can we manage it, keep the weight off and enjoy our cheats?!

The Clean Cut Way! This week we are going to guide you through Thanksgiving!  Having your feast and balancing it out.

  • Intermittent fast the morning of Thanksgiving
  • Drink water before during and after, and bring a healthy side dish
  • Do not graze all day.  Create a plate and commit to it.  Then take a pause.  Do you really need that second or third helping?
  • Make it about the company.  instead of a 3rd helping of mashed potatoes, step away and listen to Uncle Al’s war stories.  Enjoy the family moments
  • Be ready for Friday.  Have a plan and be prepped to eat clean
  • Schedule a workout for Friday. Get your SWEAT on!

Simple ways to balance your day and move forward!  The Clean Cut Way.
