Instant Pot Beef & Broccoli – 80 DO & 21 DF Approved!

NEWSFLASH!!! BUSY MOM COOKS DINNER AND NOBODY CRIES!

One of the things I love about doing a new program is that it forces me to really focus on nutrition and come up with meals that will not only fit in to MY nutrition plan, but also make sure it’s something my family will enjoy!

This one does both! I mean, teenagers licking the bowl is a good sign right?

Which is good, because nobody likes crying kids for dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds of flat iron/flank/skirt steak, sliced very thin against the grain
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger (1/2 t. dry will work too)
  • 2/3 cup beef stock (or sub water)
  • 1/3 cup of liquid aminos (or sub low sodium soy sauce)
  • 2 T plus 1 tsp honey
  • 3-4 cups of broccoli florets
  • 1 T cornstarch (or favorite thickener)
  • salt & pepper to taste

*optional: crushed red pepper to taste, scallions, nuts for garnish

Directions:

  1. Whisk liquid aminos, stock, honey and ginger together. Set aside.
  2. Set Instant Pot to Saute. Once hot, add olive oil and onions and sauté until they begin to soften and become fragrant. Add in garlic and cook an additional minute.
  3. Pour stock mixture into the IP and add in sliced steak. Cover and lock your Instant Pot and set to manual/pressure cook for 12 minutes. When cook time is up, allow to naturally release for 5 minutes before finishing with a quick release.
  4. While the beef cooks, you can lightly steam the broccoli, or you can add in at the end until it’s cooked as much as you like it. *I found it easier to steam on the stove for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Carefully take off the lid and remove 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and make a slurry by whisking in 1 T cornstarch. Mix until well combined and then return to pot. Set IP to sauté and stir until the sauce begins to thicken. Repeat slurry process if necessary. Stir in salt. Turn pot to keep warm.
  6. Add in chopped broccoli florets and stir everything together. *Allow cooking time if you didn’t steam ahead.
  7. If desired, add some crushed red pepper and/or garnish with some scallions or peanuts (count as a blue container).
  8. Serve over rice, quinoa, or cauliflower rice.

 

80 Day Obsession/21 Day Fix Container Count:

4 servings ~ 1 cup each 1 RED, 1 GREEN, 1/2 tsp

*I have seen so much success personally and in my groups with this program. The timed nutrition plan is honestly a game-changer for me and for all of the women I’m helping through the program. With recipes and meals like this, and the fact that I am eating more food, at regular intervals throughout the day means I never feel hungry or deprived!

Check out some of the results of ladies in my group from Phase 1:

Heather lost 13.5 inches and 9.6 pounds in just 4 weeks!

Here is what she says:
“80 day has been a game changer in my nutrition. The nutrition was the key piece to my success and I look forward to what phase 2 brings.”

We were taking about how the best part is that the results are happening on a meal plan that includes ALL of the food, all the food groups and no deprivation!

She said, “While i know it’s eating like an athlete, I feel like it’s eating we should all be doing.”

 

And check out Lori who lost 11 inches and 17 pounds in 4 weeks!

She says: “Well I feel awesome, I feel stronger. As a mom of 7 I always forget myself, and it feels good to take care of me. Cant wait to see what the next phases bring.”

MOM of 7! And finding time to take care of herself and get amazing results!

Egg Roll Bowl! (80 DO Approved!)

Oh my goodness! This is heaven in a bowl! I might have this as my post-workout meal every single day for the duration of my new fitness program! I made a huge pan of it that I will enjoy the rest of the week!

I love that this meal plan tells me exactly what to eat and when to eat it! It really takes the guesswork out of the entire process! And although it’s probably one of the most disciplined programs I’ve ever done, somehow it’s been easier for me to stick with it than any other program I’ve tried.

Oh, and I LOVE the workouts too! But I’ll talk about that another day. Right now, it’s all about the food!

80 Day Obsession – Week 1 Review

Seven days ago I started this 80 day journey with 51 amazing ladies, all ready to get focused and commit to a new program and our new year goals! And if these first seven days are any indication, the results are going to blow our minds!

THE WORKOUTS

The best way I can describe the workouts is tough but doable – even for a 46 year old mom of four, with a shoulder injury, foot injury and a crazy busy life!

Week 1, Phase 1 looked like this:

Day 1: Total Body Core
Day 2: Booty
Day 3: Cardio Core
Day 4: AAA
Day 5: Legs
Day 6: Cardio Flow
Day 7: Roll & Release

Here are just a few clips of what they look like in real life, in my home gym, down in my basement:

These loops and sliders are new and challenging! I love how customizable they are too! I have 6 different options for loop resistance. Whenever necessary, I modified with the sliders too by using a smaller range of motion, or using one leg at a time in some of the exercises. Room for improvement for sure!

THE NUTRITION PLAN

My first concern was – OMG! This is too much food to eat every day! I am in ‘Plan C’ (just in case you were wondering), and I have 5 meals I need to fit in each day. And although there is a learning curve – and planning/prepping is key – it’s ALL laid out for me! I know exactly what types of foods I need to eat at each meal, and at what time throughout the day! Once you understand it, there’s no guess work. I have actually never stuck to a plan as well as I have this one!

And doesn’t it all look yummy?

THE RESULTS

Well first off let me tell you that we were told NOT to weigh ourselves during the first 2 weeks. I am a rule follower, so I didn’t. BUT, I can tell you that I feel tighter and toner and my clothes are fitting better already! I can tell I am less ‘mushy’ in the middle and I just feel stronger, walking taller and ready to push on for week 2!

And even though I told those 51 ladies they shouldn’t weigh in until week 2, a few couldn’t resist, and I can’t blame them!

I received this messaged from Jamey:

“Just wanted to share… I’ve lost 6 lbs this week! I’ve never lost that much in week one while also exercising. The containers must be working!”

And this one from Lori:

“I know we werent suppose to weigh yet…but I did lol Ive lost 8lbs…”

And this from Gretchen:

“…we’re not supposed to weigh in, but I WILL celebrate being down 3,5″ in all the right places!!! Waist, hips, abductors, and chest (or back fat lol)!!”

There was a test group before the launch and here are some results from participants who completed all 80 days:

THE INVITE!

I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be starting a WAVE 2 for anyone ready to jump in and get to work on a transformation of your own! If you are willing to do the work and trust the process, than I will help you stick with it and support you every step of the way!
