Starkist, HungryGirl and a "gym in the clouds"

Many of you ask for healthy recipes, which is my favorite thing to share with all of you.  But since we've been packing and preparing to move, I've slacked in the kitchen and will be sharing my own new recipes with you VERY soon!  But the good news is that I have some great recipes to share with you from StarKist Flavor Fresh Pouch and HungryGirl!  If you're not a fan of tuna, you can substitute with any other source of protein!  What I like about these recipes is that they're quick and easy!  Who doesn't love quick, easy and HEALTHY?!  

StarKist is here with two tuna-packed recipes from the go-to-expert for guilt-free food, Hungry Girl! As the temperatures have been dropping, things have been heating up in her test kitchen, and she created these two delectable dishes—
of course featuring the StarKist Flavor Fresh Pouch!

HG's Tex-Mex Tuna Chopped Salad
PER SERVING (entire recipe): 348 calories, 11g fat, 705mg sodium, 28g carbs, 13g fiber, 6g sugars, 39g protein

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes
1 pouch Starkist Hickory Smoked Tuna Creations®
1/2 cup chopped jicama
1/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1 oz. chopped avocado (about 1/4 avocado)
Optional: fat-free ranch dressing

In a medium bowl, mix cole slaw, apple, and tuna. Top with dressing and toss to coat. Enjoy!

In addition to healthy recipes, I love sharing the latest and greatest when it comes to fitness!  I want to encourage ALL OF YOU to choose a workout that works for you.  A workout that you LOVE!  Something that makes you happy, and you actually look forward to it!  If you haven't found that perfect fit when it comes to exercise, then Yufit might be for you?!

Yufit’s classes are 30 or 60 minutes in length, and include Yoga Flow, Buns & Thighs (a lower body toning class), Cardio Kickboxing, Balletonetm, Power Body (a total body workout), and more. Classes cater to every fitness level and interest. Each class is updated twice a week so workouts are always fresh, similar to working out at a traditional gym, but without the commute or the crowds.

Members can direct questions back to the instructors via the site’s newsfeed.

Visitors to Yufit can sign up for a free 14-day trial with no credit card required to sign up for the trial. After the trial period, and for a limited time, Yufit is only $9.99/month for one year (regularly $14.99/month).

Yufit would like to offer two of my readers a 60 Day trial membership and if you win, I'd love to hear about your experience!  I usually enjoy a good workout video, but over time it feels really repetitive and boring, so I'm thinking Yufit takes that away by changing up the workouts twice a week?  I can't wait to hear your thoughts...
