We’re baaaaaaaack! After taking the month of August off for a much-needed summer break, Jimmy and Mindy are back in the saddle once again ready to chat about and discuss healthy low-carb living. Be sure you pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and join us on the Virtual Porch to talk with our “friends” this week Lisa Geiger and Sandy Personette in Episode 21 of Low-Carb Conversations with Jimmy Moore & Friends!

Today we talk about Mindy’s summer weight loss challenge and how it led her and her husband to try a unique form of kettlebell lifting, low-carbing for acne control, a salad in a jar recipe, and a tasty recipe for a no-tortilla enchilada bake! The conversation has begun against and we appreciate you listening and being a part of the fun.

Special thanks to our brand new sponsor: Skogg Kettlebell System!

Recipe:

Low Carb Enchilada Bake
By Lisa Geiger
2 Whole Chickens
2 cans red enchilada sauce (or make your own)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Bring chickens to a boil in water in a large stock pot. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 to 3 hours.
As soon as the chicken starts to fall apart when you try to lift it out of the pot, it’s ready. Remove chicken and debone.
Preheat oven to 350° F.  Put deboned chicken in a 9×13 or similar size casserole pan. Stir in the two cans of enchilada sauce. Top with the cheese.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese melts.
Serve on a bed of lettuce for low-carbers and top with sour cream, black olives, salsa, guacamole, etc. Non-low-carbers can have theirs served on tortilla chips.

    I too am doing the Skogg System Kettlebell workoutafter reading Nora Gedaudas’ book. I have to agree with the comments Mindy made about it. I just finished week 5. It’s aerobic, strength, and abdominal training all in one! Michael Skogg says, and I’m paraphrasing, “With kettlebells, we get our sixpacks on our feet.” Gotta love that. I notice visible changes in my shoulders/arms and abs already, and I lost 4 lbs. This, after my weight was just not budging following low carb alone. As a 46 year-old woman, I found the quick changes surprising. I look forward to each workout, it is fun, and flows nice.

    Awesome, Stephy! Good for you on the loss…I’m hoping for a bit of that with the Skogg’s 60-day challenge!

    Hi Mindy, I’m interested in trying the Kettlebell workout but there’s so little info or sample video on the Skoggs site and they don’t appear to sell the kettlebells there. Is there a recommended brand to buy and should a beginner like me with an iffy back like yours start with a 4 pound bell. And if so, do you end up buying lots of them? Does he give clear instructions or do the videos have a lot of “inspirational/bootcamp” type yelling and/or a loud music sound track in the background?

    Also the Enchilada recipe sounds great!

      I actually found some really nice quality kettlebells on the Walmart website. Not the cheapy “golds gym” ones in the store with the rough, hand-scraping handles & not the cheapy, vinyl coated Jillian Michael ones either.

      The ones I found are CAP brand, they are really nice quality, have a smooth finish, and VERY affordable. Plus they’ll ship free to the store for pickup. By far the best quality for the best price I’ve found. Mine did have a small nick in the paint, but that was it. (who cares though really… it’s a black cannon ball with a handle after all! haha)

        Kevin, Perfect timing! Thank YOU SO MUCH! I bought an adjustable 5-20 pound Weider KB (with weight plates you remove/insert to change the weight) at Big 5 this afternoon and I’m returning it this evening. Even though Mr. Skogg is pictured on the packaging, it’s really awkward and uncomfortable to use. I also received my videos today (YAY!). And thanks to you I just went on Walmart.com and ordered a set with Cap 10-15-20 for $49 — $20 less than the yucky one I’m returning. The gym I first tried them out in uses Cap so they’re definitely good enough. Definitely wouldn’t buy anything that has Jillian Michael on it! I should be able to pick them up next week at my local-ish Walmart. Thanks again,
        Jana
