Fit Along Friday

It's Fit Along Friday on Monday! I just made the most delicious meal! It is Acorn Squash with Apple, Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing. Oh it was so yummy!!!

Yesterday I went to the grocery store and got enough supplies to make about 7 slow cooker meals. My plan was to prep them all and then put 5 of them in the freezer and leave the other two in the fridge to toss into the slow cooker over the next few days. But I had to go somewhere and I didn't get it all prepped. I had big plans of prepping and taking pictures. Hopefully I'll be able to get it done tonight before all my food goes bad!

As for the meal I made today it was so yummy and I had to share my modifications to the original recipe.  The original recipe can be found here.

Acorn Squash with Apple, Cranberry & Sausage Stuffing

Meat - 
1 lb ground pork sausage with sage

1 acorn squash (cut into to pieces, remove the seeds, roast face down at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes)
1 apple (I used a granny smith)
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup onion
1/2 cup cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp parsley (I omitted. I don't like parsley)
1/2 tsp sage, dried
1/2 tsp thyme

Canned Goods-
1/4 cup chicken stock

Breads & Baked Goods-
1 cup White Bread (omitted)
2 cups Whole Wheat Bread (omitted)
Instead of the bread I used Almond Flour

2 tbsp butter (omitted)
I used coconut oil to saute the vegetables

I cooked the onion, celery and pork until it was cooked through (I drained the fat from the pork). Then I added the spices, apple, and cranberries. I mixed it all up and then I added the almond flour (I didn't measure it but I think it was a little over a half a cup). Then I added a some chicken stock. I mixed it all up. I added the stuffing mixture to the roasted squash and put the left over stuffing in a container for lunch tomorrow.

It was so yummy and I know I can easily modify this meal and use lean ground turkey instead of the pork. Which I know will be a perfect substitute and make this meal work for the Master Hammer & Chisel Challenge I'm doing starting January 3rd.

My super awesome coach made this header for our challenge group. I got such a huge kick out of it.  If you ever need some motivation just put your head on a super fit person! Damn Byronna and I are looking good :) One of the things I like most about doing the Challenge Groups is being around people that challenge, push and motivate me. I have participated in quite a few of these groups, but this is my first time co-hosting one. If you want to join us the challenge starts January 3rd. You can order the program "The Master's Hammer and Chisel" through my site. I can't wait to get started. I got my disks ordered and I must say I'm happy about the free shipping!!!
