Smoky Pinekale-ada Smoothie Recipe #SauceOn #shop

The smoothie was perfection in a glass! The hot sauce really brought up the flavors of the pineapple and banana. As you drink it (and it’s perfect for a post-workout drink) you get to taste that smokiness with a hint of heat at the end. |

Since I’ve recommitted to eating healthy and leading an active lifestyle adding a little spice to my recipes has been one of my priorities. It’s a fantastic way to savor some bold flavors without any guilt of eating too much!

Let me introduce you to El Yucateco line of hot sauces:


You can find them at retailers like Walmart on the Latin/Hispanic aisle.

And yes, he was like a kid in a candy store ;)


The Red Habanero Sauce is the one I would normally would for the hubs to add to his chicken wings.

The Green Habanero Sauce smells just like the sofrito my mom makes with a kick. I’m too wimpy but the hubs loved this one! This has become his new steak sauce.

The Black Label Sauce, well, that’s my favorite. This one is not all about the heat. It’s very aromatic, it has that distinctive smoky scent and it’s very tasty. This is my new steak sauce and main staple for those habanero recipes that I’m thinking of already!

However, don’t just stop as using this sauces to condiment your proteins or on your guac. I dare you to think outside the box! I did and loved, loved how my baby kale smoothie to got its #SauceOn #CollectiveBias

Dare to go outside the box. Taste this delicious Smoky Pinekale-ada Smoothie! It will rock your taste buds.

Surprisingly deliciousness!

I had a couple of them with just 1/4 teaspoon of the Black Label Habanero Hot Sauce and to get a little more heat I finished it with a couple drops of the sauce right before serving it.

Fitness Friday: 4 week progress!

week4-resultsFour weeks ago, I promised myself that I would work towards reclaiming my healthy body. It has not been easy but it’s finally clicking in my brain that we are ready to do this.

The scale is not moving as fast as I would like to, but I’ll take it. Of course, it does help when the hubs keeps telling you, “You lost weight, looking good!” Ah, he knows I need to keep hearing this and him cheering me on.

4 weeks results:

Lost 1/2 inch at the waist and 1 inch at the hips. I’m pretty happy with that! What I love the most, my tummy is not sticking out as much anymore ;)



You can see the before pictures on this post.

Lessons this week:

  • Do not leave exercise for later. It never works. You’ll get too busy, too distracted, too tired or simply forget all about it and then when you remember you are laying in bed already (true story).
  • Got to meal plan for the week or you’ll go to the dark side and make fast food choices that you know will blow your daily calorie budget.
  • No matter how crappy, how hard if feels at the moment, how you feel the workout is going to kill you, finish it! It’s good to listen to your body but don’t listen to your mind this time. Savoring the taste of accomplishment after a training session is way better than thinking what if.
  • Switch from calling a workout session to a training session. I feel like the word workout makes me think of it like it’s a chore… not what I want. Calling it a training session makes me feel like an athlete. There’s purpose on session!

Fitness Friday: Let’s hit the road running
