Hey- Hey it’s Fit Friday!!!
I love when Miss Nichole from Pure Clean Fitness comes to hang out with us! We’re so excited to share this Jalapeno Honey Cornbread and Core Power House with y’all today!!
Jalapeno Honey Cornbread is fast and easy to make, but tastes like you spent oodles of time on it! The bit of jalepeno kick in this recipe makes it taste amazing. It takes it right over the top! 🙂
Jalapeno Honey Cornbread is great with all kinds of chili’s! Some of our favorites with it are: Elk Chili, Green Chili Black Beans, Slow Cooker Southwest Chicken Chili. Enjoy making this Jalapeno Honey Cornbread in either a cast iron skillet for family style or muffin tins for individual servings!
Miss Nichole’s Core Power House . . .
All right folks, let’s talk power house. Why? Because we use our power house, our core, for every movement we do. When I talk core I am not talking about ripped abs and fitting into those perfect jeans. I am talking your power house, I am talking about the spot where all of your energy and movement stem from. Of course those skinny jeans are a bonus, they just aren’t the most important reason to do core. I do core to run faster, play longer, pick up my littles ones easier, bring in the groceries, the list goes on and on.
I love power lifts and I know that those strengthen all through my core. But I also will throw in a solid core workout at the end of my run or spin class at least once a week. And when I say a core workout I don’t mean 5 minutes of plank and 100 situps, I get bored way before that. I need variety and I need stuff that gives me a challenge I enjoy. Which brings me to the workout for this Fit Friday.
For today’s core workout you need 10 minutes and a weighted ball:
Jalapeno Honey Cornbread is not your average cornbread recipe! It has a fabulous jalapeno kick that takes it over the top!
Happy Fit Friday!
Much Love and Peace~
