• My mom’s favorite church song is Grace & Mercy. When @pintsizefaith they sent me these shirts, they didn’t know.  I believe this was a message from my mom that his Grace & Mercy will bring me through. Thank you @pintsizefaith  for all the inspiring messages.
  • The time is always right to do what is right - MLK. Words I try to live by! If you visit Memphis, go by the Lorraine Motel. So many emotions just knowing this is where he took his last steps.
  • I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?

30 Day Protein Challenge: Easy Beef + Veggie Stir-fry

September 30, 2016

This post is brought to you by The Beef Checkoff and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

In my never-ending journey to eating right, I’ve learned a few things about myself.  I love carbs but they don’t love me back.  I tend to fill up on carbs to compensate for not getting enough protein in my diet.  When I overload on carbs, I feel sluggish and hungry for the rest of the day.  For the month of October, I’ll be participating in the 30 Day Protein Challenge in an effort to increase my energy levels, improve my overall health and maybe lose a few pounds.  I’m kicking off the Protein Challenge with this easy beef and veggie stir fry.

I made my beef stir fry based off this recipe from the 30 Day Protein Challenge (HERE).  For my version of the stir fry, I used top round steak and my favorite veggies.  I’m still shocked on how easy (and cheap) it is to make stir fry at home.  I also excited to try more protein rich recipes like Portuguese Steak Kabobs, Burger on a Salad and Tacos.

I’ve noticed that after eating protein packed meals through out the day I have more energy and it keeps my appetite under control.  The Beef Checkoff has developed the Protein Challenge, a fun, step-by- step 30-day plan to help you get a balanced amount of protein at each meal.  The 30 Day Protein Challenge helps you keep track of your food, hunger and moods to see how simple diet changes can make a difference in your overall health and wellness for 30 days and beyond.  Everything you need to join me on the 30 Day Protein Challenge can be found HERE.   Plenty of great recipes and tools to help you during this challenge.

Need help learning how you can add protein to your meals for a better balanced diet?  Join us for a Twitter party on Thursday, October 20 at 1 p.m. ET using #ProteinChallenge. We’ll be talking about tips and inspiration for quick and easy protein-rich meals and snacks. There well also be giveaways during the party.  RSVP for the party HERE.

Have you ever taken the time to notice how your body reacts to certain foods?  I’m positive after taking the 30 Day Protein Challenge we’ll all notice a significant difference in our body and hopefully the scale.

    What stir fry sauce did you use?

    I think it was Lawry’s teriyaki ginger marinade/sauce. There are so many flavors to choose from.

    Does this challenge offer a vegetarian/vegan option?

    Thank you. I remember you mentioning a sauce from Aldi on your snap. I went there looking for it and a sales person said they don’t sell a stir fry sauce.

    Yes, I have used the Aldi sauce but it’s one of their “special” items so when they run out, it’s out. I hate I didn’t stock up! I think they bring it back on occasion. I check every time I go. The others work just as good once you find a flavor you like. Let me know how yours turns out.

    Check the site for vegetarian options. I’m sure you could sub the meat for your favorite protein options. The tools for the challenge are still great to use.
