Plant-Powered Sloppy Joes

PLANT-POWERED SLOPPY JOES

There’s no denying it…winter is full throttle! The sun may be out a few days a week, but the temps are leaving us bundled up and craving something warm and comforting. While it’s tempting to resort to classic winter favorites, we also don’t want to undo the hard work we’ve been putting into our fitness classes. Comforting pot pies may feel good in the moment, but don’t top the list as the best food for fuel.

In our quest for warm savory fare that hits the nostalgic spot yet doesn’t break the nutrition bank, we discovered these Plant-Powered Sloppy Joe’s from popular plant-based food blog My New Roots.

Lentils are a powerhouse of protein, fiber, folate, iron, and magnesium. This recipe is perfect for refueling after a grueling Tabata class or replenishing your carbs post cycle. We recommend making a big batch of lentils or sloppy Joe filling ahead of time and eat it throughout the week or freeze it for later. We know you’re busy hitting all those classes this January! Let us know what you think. Do you have any favorite health-ified winter recipes?

Plant-Powered Sloppy Joes- My New Roots
Makes 6-8 sandwiches

Ingredients:

6-8 wholegrain sourdough buns
1 batch Simple Cabbage Slaw (recipe follows)
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
sprouts for topping, if desired

1 cup / 230g black lentils
1 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 medium onion, diced
1 tsp. fine grain sea salt
3 cloves garlic, minced
135g brown button mushrooms, chopped
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. smoked paprika (hot or sweet, your choice)
½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. Sriracha
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 14oz. / 400ml can crushed organic tomatoes
½ cup / 60g walnuts, roughly chopped

Simple Cabbage Slaw
2 cups shredded red cabbage
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
½ Tbsp. pure maple syrup
a couple pinches sea salt

Directions:
1. Soak lentils overnight if possible. Drain, rinse, and place in a medium saucepan. Cover with about 3 cups / 750ml water, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer until tender, about 15-20 minutes (cook time will depend on whether or not you’ve soaked them).

2. While the lentils are cooking, melt the coconut oil in a large skillet. Add the onions and salt, stir to coat, and cook for about 15 minutes until starting to caramelize. Add the garlic, mushrooms and red pepper and cook for about 5 minutes or so until fragrant. Next add the cumin, paprika, black pepper and stir to coat. Stir in the Sriracha, balsamic, and can of tomatoes.

3. Drain and rinse the lentils, add them to the pan with the veggies and spices. Give it all a stir and let simmer for a few minutes for the flavours to meld.

4. In a separate skillet over medium heat, lightly toast the walnuts until golden in places and fragrant. Give them a rough chop and add them to the lentil mixture.

5. Have a taste and adjust the seasoning to suit you. Add more salt if necessary, more balsamic for sweet-tartness, or Sriracha for heat.

6. Make the Simple Cabbage Slaw by combining all the ingredients in a large bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning to suit you.

7. Toast your buns and ladle and a generous amount of the sloppy joe filling over the top of one half. Top with the Simple Cabbage Slaw, red onion and some sprouts, if desired. Top with the other half of the bun, and tuck in!

Give Back as a Secret Santa!

secret-santa_web-07

Be a Secret Santa: Make a Child’s Day!

We agree the best part of the holidays is giving, and what better way to give back to the community than to put a smile on a child’s face? This holiday season at Community Fitness we will be participating in Sleep Train’s Foster Kids Toy Drive.

Why Foster Kids?

While foster parents do receive a stipend to cover basic needs, it is often not enough to cover all necessities. Additionally, foster parents can be grandparents or extended family members who also may need a little extra support. That’s where the Sleep Train Foster Kids program and YOU come in–to help fill the gap.

For children who have lost their family and are separated from their siblings, small donations of clothing, school supplies, and toys can mean the world, helping to boost their self-esteem and allowing them to fit in with their peers.

Sleep Train Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation™, a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit, has worked diligently with carefully selected non-profit foster care partners to continually work to improve the lives of our local foster children.

With your help, thousands of foster youth will have the school supplies they need to succeed in school, a special gift this holiday season and properly fitting shoes and clothing throughout the year. These simple gifts can introduce newfound hope into the lives of children who have faced many challenges in their lifetimes.

How to Donate

Please drop off new and unwrapped toys or clothing to any Community Fitness location by Saturday, December 17th in the bins provided. Thank you for helping us put the community in fitness!

Healthy Holiday Cookies

HEALTHY HOLIDAY COOKIES

10-final_7

We got you with the title, didn’t we? While we by no means admit cookies are healthy, there are definitely healthier recipes that can be a part of moderation in your diet. Besides, what fun are the holidays without a little baking? Whether you are gluten free, vegan, paleo, or sugar free, tweaking traditional recipes are not as hard as it may seem. Don’t knock it til you try it!

Check out out this tempting list from Greatist. With 47 recipes, there’s something for everyone! May we suggest the Almond Flour Coconut Sugar Cookies to decorate? Yum!

Almond Flour Coconut Sugar Cookies                                                                                Recipe from The Iron You

Ingredients
Makes about 45 cookies

½ cup / 4 oz / 113 gr butter, softened
¼ cup / 1.8 oz / 52 gr coconut oil, at room temperature
¾ cup / 5.3 oz / 150 gr granulated sweetener (coconut sugar)
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 ¼ cups almond flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
½ cup coconut flour (Bob’s Red Mill)
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon fine grain salt

Directions

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a large bowl with a wooden spoon), cream the butter, coconut oil, and sugar until lightened and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla extract and mix until incorporated.

In a separate bowl whisk almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.

Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, one cup at a time, mixing well after each addition until a dough form.

Form the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, up to overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C) and place a rack in the middle. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

Roll the dough on a flat surface sprinkled with coconut flour until about ¼-inch thick.

Working quickly, cut cookies with cookies cutters and place on the lined baking sheets.

Bake for 14-15 minutes, until lightly golden. When you reach the 10 minutes mark keep an eye on the oven, and make sure they don’t burn.

Let cool on the baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring — with the help of a spatula — to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container up to two weeks.

One cookie yields 79 calories, 6 grams of fat, 5 grams of carbs, and 2 grams of protein.

Meet Your Instructor: Kanna Toguchi

Kanna Toguchi

photoKanna turned to yoga when she hit rock bottom, disconnected with a plethora of ailments, and found a safe haven through her practice. She is a certified 200 Hr yoga teacher with over 500 hours of advanced training in yoga therapy from The Samarya Center. It is her intention to be a guide in a process which embraces the uniqueness of each individual; offering a space for the spheres of the mind, body and spirit to coalesce and communicate harmoniously. She is nourished from sharing her passion of yoga as a therapeutic healing modality and the symbiotic relationship that is generated through teaching; thus empowering people with tools to awaken to their own Truth and Divinity.

Above all, it is Kanna’s intention to impart the great importance of love for the Self and the innate capacity of the body to heal, restore, and renew itself.  Through movement she infuses the philosophy of yoga, meditation, and poetry, which are the touchstones in her life to light the sacred fire of Love. She looks forward to being in the Flow with you!

 

In addition to teaching, Kanna has a deep passion for health and wellness and is a Reiki practitioner, Reflexologist & Thai Yoga bodyworker. She offers healing in a safe and supportive container out of her private practice, Awakened Heart Wellness.

 


When you aren’t at CFit, what do you do?
Giving Thai Yoga bodywork! I love love love bodywork and have been one longer than I’ve been a teacher. It’s a merging of acupressure, restorative yoga, breathwork and deep rhythmic compression which can aid in releasing physical/mental/emotional tension, increasing flexibility, joint mobility, healing for chronic pain & increased body awareness. Super delicious for body, mind and spirit!

 
 
How did you discover yoga and what do you love most about it?
I stumbled upon it at a gym and had a vivid memory of how I felt in my body afterward…centered and at peace…it was sublime! Suffice it to say, at this time my practice was intermittent and the focus rested heavily upon the physical aspects. Then, a roll over car accident, unresolved trauma, terrible break-up, and some years later lead me to dive heart first into the deep end of yoga to heal what I felt was broken.  This brought all the jewels; learning to be with and love myself, which is a ongoing process. What I love most about yoga? Oh boy, SO many things! If I had to say one (or 2) thing(s), it would be that it continues to provide me with tools to live in this sometimes crazy world as a human and understand myself and others with more compassion and gratitude.
 
 
 
What’s your favorite way to spend a day or night off?

Reading, gallivanting outdoors on a hike, hunting for treasures in a thrift shop, laughing with friends and family, watching a vintage film, or cooking a yummy meal at home.

 

What is something not many people know about you? 
I used to work in legal and fashion industries.

 
If you could instantly master any skill/superpower/talent/knowledge, what would it be?
To fly! Since I was a kid, I’ve been fascinated with flight and birds. The fluidity, strength and grace are awe inspiring.
 
 
What are you most passionate about in life?
Connecting with people!! Though I’m an introvert, I love people; understanding, engaging and connecting with others in and outside of my communities! I always end up learning how someone I know is connected to someone else and so on. This big world is actually quite small and it’s such a comforting reminder that we’re all in this together.
 
Any good movies/books/bands/foods/discoveries lately that you’d recommend?
While I don’t watch much TV, my partner recently introduced me to Blacklisted.  Not a new show but boy is it good! The intrigue, suspense, plot twists and witticism from James Spader have definitely captured my attention! How did I not notice him in the 80’s? Guess I was too caught up with the rest of the Brat Pack.
 
 
What else would you want to share with people about you or your class?
The philosophical aspects of yoga have helped me immensely as far as daily life is concerned and that, for me, continues to be the biggest yoga we practice. While the physical asana is important, since I’ve woven meditation and philosophical aspects of yoga into my practice, it has truly fed me from the inside out. Also, I’m not a teacher who can do all the crazy shapes that some can and I’m okay with that. As a former dancer & athlete, I was super competitive, but now the only person I compete against is myself. Every time I’m unable to get into a shape or push too hard, I’m reminded to meet myself with loving kindness and lean further into acceptance that it’s okay not to arrive in some grand “pretzeley” pose.  In the end, what matters is showing up and making the effort! Thus, it’s my intention to create a safe, supportive container for all to explore movement in their bodies, as well as navigating the internal landscape, which offers many mysteries. It’s truly a joy for me to share what has and continues to help me. I hope it will for you too!

Meet Your Instructor: Nanave Radford

dsc02494

Nanave Radford

 

Nanave found her love for movement at age 5 in the form of gymnastics and continued through high school. After many years of training and competing, her passion migrated to Tahitian dancing when her dad, a Native Tahitian, took her with him to a dance practice where he drummed. In 2003, she began performing with the Tahitian dance groupApatoerau and in 2004 started teaching.

Since 2006, she has been dance director and choreographer for a nonprofit organization called Te Fare O Tamatoa.  Their performance group Te’a rama performs around the greater Seattle area. She has performed professionally with the traditional Tahitian dance group Kei Tawhiti in Tahiti and has received her certification of Ori Tahiti through level  4 at the Conservatoire Artistique de la Polynésie in Papeete, with high marks.

In other dance training, Nanave has taken ballet, jazz, modern, and hip hop through college courses and performed for 3 years with Bellevue College’s Eastside Moving Company. Since 2013, Nanave has been MixxedFit and Zumba certified.

 


 

When you aren’t at CFit, what do you do?
When I’m not at CFit, I’m dancing elsewhere. Dance is my life and I love it. When I’m not dancing, I’m either sleeping or crafting/making costumes for my Tahitian dance troupe.

 
 
How did you discover MixxedFit, and what do you love most about it?
I discovered MixxedFit on accident by attending what I thought was a Zumba class and turned out it wasn’t! However, it was one of the best choices of my life. Going to that first class was the beginning of my dance fitness career, but of course, at the time, i didn’t know it.
 
 
 
What’s your favorite way to spend a day or night off?
When I have time off (if I’m not sleeping), I spend it with my loved ones, family and friends. I enjoy being adventurous even with how lazy I can be. I’m typically a night owl, so I enjoy night life in the city or just kicking it with some friends at home. However, with life as a dancer, we have to go out and dance a little now and then.
 

What is something not many people know about you? 
My choice in music is all over the place. Most people are surprised when they find out that Marilyn Manson is one of my favorite music artists. I enjoy listening to just about everything but country. I can’t do that twang thing, my ears don’t like it. Depending on my mood, I can listen to almost anything.  

 
If you could instantly master any skill/superpower/talent/knowledge, what would it be?
I’d be a ninja.
 
 
What are you most passionate about in life?
I’m honestly most passionate about dancing. I put everything I have into it. The Tahitian dance troupe that I direct takes up a lot of my brain power. I’m always looking for inspiration for what’s next with us: what the theme of the next show is going to be, how formations are going to pan out as I’m choreographing a new dance, or what materials I want to use for the costume. It’s a lot of work, and I may complain when I start to get stressed, but I put everything I have into it.
 
 Any good movies/books/bands/foods/discoveries lately that you’d recommend?
Common Kings. They are musicians and I LOVE them so much. Good concerts too.
 
 
What else would you want to share with people about you or your class?
I like to encourage those who attend my class to let themselves get lost in the music, let loose, and have a good time. Give everything you’ve got and leave it all on the dance floor. Releasing energy in the form of movement can be very therapeutic and if I can help people achieve that, then I’ve done my job.

Meet Your Instructor: Rachel Burklund

Rachel Burklund

 

Rachel has taught consciousness meditation to a small group since 2008 and this passion for stillness and inner peace led her to become a yoga teacher. Rachel believes that the way to heal is to go within oneself and that yoga and meditation are powerful vehicles for us to connect to our greatest potential. In Rachel’s classes you will have the opportunity to grow physically as well as emotionally and spiritually. She has a vision to help people tap into their highest awareness.

Rachel has practiced various styles of yoga since 1999, however in 2014 she came to yoga for a different reason. Yoga was a calling for her to physically heal from an injury and to emotionally heal in a time of extreme challenge. From that point forward, yoga took a new direction and it became a way of life. She received her 200-hour Teacher Training certification in December 2015 through Shakti Vinyasa Yoga and in April 2016 she also completed their Teacher Mentorship Program.

Rachel is also a jewelry designer and a mother. She is originally from the Seattle area.


 

When you aren’t at CFit, what do you do?
I have a custom jewelry business where I design jewelry for clients on request. I also create beaded jewelry with antique stones and various found materials. Other than jewelry I have a 5 year old son that keeps my husband and I very busy. He is very active so I spend a lot of time playing all types of sports like basketball and soccer. We hike often, too. I grew up here, so I love being out in the woods, it is what makes me the most happy being out in nature.

 
 
How did you discover yoga, and what do you love most about it?
I discovered yoga in 1999 when I was on a spiritual quest with Buddism and meditation. I was intrigued from the first class with the breath work and the focus and calming of the mind. My yoga journey has taken a lot of twists and turns since then and what I love about yoga today is how it is a way of life, how it has changed the way that I am in the world. It has evolved my being in ways that I had no idea were possible. 
 
 
 
What’s your favorite way to spend a day or night off?
I love spas. My husband and I share this passion for hydro therapy together so we enjoy the sauna, steam and cold pool rotation. It is one of our favorite day dates to do together. Time with each other is precious with our busy schedules so that is my favorite way to spend a day off with my husband.

 

 

What is something not many people know about you? 
When I was in my early 20’s I decided to shave my head after a break up and then travel around Spain for 5 weeks. The travel was eye opening for me since I had not been to Europe before that time and traveling alone gave me a lot of confidence that I could do anything. That was when the passion for travel started. 

 
If you could instantly master any skill/superpower/talent/knowledge, what would it be?
I have always wanted to be able to beam myself anywhere instantly. I have friends in other countries so I have always wanted to instantly be there in front of them hanging out.
 
 
What are you most passionate about in life?
I am most passionate about meditation and taking time to go within. I have been part of a meditation group for the last 9 years and it has transformed my life. Taking the time to sit quietly and observe what comes up for me has been profound. I feel like the world could heal itself if we all made this a priority.
 
 Any good movies/books/bands/foods/discoveries lately that you’d recommend?
I recently attended the opera with some friends and it was a magical night out. It was fun to see the city abuzz with the arts. I would recommend attending a show, I was pleasantly surprised with the stage design and the talent of the singers.
 
 
What else would you want to share with people about you or your class?
Meditation and my passion for meditation led me to become a yoga teacher. Yoga has been part of my life for so long, it has been a silent calling to heal in times of stress and challenge and I am excited to share my passion with others. In my classes you will be challenged physically and encouraged to go to your edge to breakthrough to open up to something beyond the physical. I am excited to help students grow and assist them through their journey.
