I’ll call this: Herb Roasted Chicken and Sides

If you are like me, you have probably seen this next recipe all over Pinterest and Facebook, so I had to try it myself and make my own modifications to make it AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge friendly. It was easy and something different. I hope you enjoy.


This is a picture of it BEFORE it was cooked. FYI. The next picture is of all the ingredients I used. First, put 3 to 4 chicken breasts in the center of the baking dish. Be sure to spray with Pam first. Then on either side of the chicken place your fresh green beans and diced potatoes. I used petite golden potatoes. I’m sure it would be good also with red potatoes.


First, I brushed about 1 to 2 tablespoons of olive oil over the chicken and sides. I also sprayed some of the Bertolli Olive Oil Spray (I love, love this product–great olive oil flavor without the calories!!). Then I simply seasoned until it “looked good.” The seasonings you see here are Italian seasoning, pepper, garlic powder, thyme and garlic pepper.

I baked uncovered at 375 for approximately 45 minutes. You can tell when it is done:-)


Savory Kale

Savory Kale

2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 medium onion–chopped
3 cloves minced garlic
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 3/4 cup chicken broth (low sodium)
1 pound bag Kale
Handful or so of sliced almonds (optional)
Handful or so of dried cranberries (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

In a large stock pot, heat olive oil on medium high heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute until onion softens–about 5 minutes. Stir in mustard, cider vinegar, and chicken broth. Bring to a boil on high heat. Add kale. Cover and cook 5 minutes, stirring often. Add cranberries and continue cooking on medium high heat. Season with salt and pepper. Add almonds last.

My Advisor Order–where do I put it all?!

So I just unpacked all my shipment boxes and here it all is….



Have I mentioned how amazing the Gingerbread bars are? Umm, I ordered NINE boxes!! If you want to try one, let me know:-) And let’s not even get started on SPARK!! Not sure if you can tell, but there are 5 boxes of the Grape pouches and 2 grape canisters and 2 boxes of the fruit punch pouches and 2 fruit punch canisters. Can you tell what our favorites are? 🙂 As I was unpacking I couldn’t resist trying for the 1st time the Tropical multivitamin chews and the DHA purple champ chews and they both did not disappoint!! So delicious and I’m thrilled to have vitamins that I know my boys will LOVE!

Friends and Family–you have to see what all these products are about. I would not be sharing if I didn’t love them myself and know and trust in AdvoCare!

Until next post,



Turkey Chili–Advocare Challenge Friendly


I made this the I other night for my husband and myself. It had great flavor and was a nice change to some of the other foods I’ve been cooking during the 24 day challenge. It made a lot, so I froze the leftovers.


1 tablespoon evoo

1 small to medium red onion, chopped

1 small to medium white onion, chopped

1 large green bell pepper chopped

2 lbs lean ground turkey (at least 93% lean)

6 cloves garlic (I used already minced garlic)

1 tablespoon chili powder

6 tablespoons cumin powder

1 teaspoon ground coriander

3 cups diced fresh tomatoes

1 sodium free chicken bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup water

1 can kidney beans

1 can tomato paste (6 oz)

1 can no salt added tomato sauce

In a large pot, saute the onions, bell pepper and garlic in the EVOO. Once onions appear translucent, stir in the ground turkey. Cook until turkey is done. Stirring frequently. Add in the chili powder, cumin and coriander. Pour in the dissolved bouillon cube in the water. Add in the beans, tomato paste, Diced tomatoes and sauce. Cook on low heat for at least 20 to 30 minutes. I let simmer for about an hour to allow all the flavors to come together.

Hope you enjoy! Until next time,
