Ooh la la ... RED WINE REDUCTION SAUCE

RED WINE REDUCTION SAUCE HOW TO

Do you have an accumulation of opened half-drank bottles of red wine sitting around from your holiday shindigs?  After a few days, the quality of leftover red wine tends to diminish pretty quickly, but don’t pour it out -- Make your own red wine reduction sauce!

We went away for a week after Christmas and left half a bottle of Cabernet on the counter. By the time we got home, it wasn’t in very drinkable condition. I'd read about various methods of reducing red wine into a sauce, but truth be told, I rarely have leftover wine! :)

Deciding there was no time like the present, I hit the stove with my Cab' and made the tastiest red wine reduction sauce to drizzle on top of my steak salad.  Here’s the official Bikini Body Mommy how-to...

Ingredients

3/4 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 yellow onion, minced
1/3 cup raisins
2 cups dry red wine
2 cups beef stock, chicken stock or vegetable broth (I used beef stock for my steak)
sea salt to taste

*You can experiment and add any combination of shallots, garlic, onion, celery, and herbs during the reduction stage if you like. They will only add flavour.

Directions

Heat the olive oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Add the garlic and yellow onion, and sauté, about 5 minutes. Add the red wine and raisins, increase heat to high. Allow wine to reduce for 15 minutes or so until it becomes very thick and syrupy and at least 3/4 of the liquid has evaporated. Add the stock or broth. Allow it to reduce until there is about a half cup of liquid left in the pan. Taste for seasoning. Depending on the stock or broth you used, you may need salt. Run the reduction through a fine sieve or cheese cloth to remove the onion garlic and raisin pieces.

Notes

  • This sauce is DELICIOUS. I’ve already used it on top of steak, duck and salmon.

  • A little goes a long way. This sauce is rich ... Just a small drizzle was plenty for the steak.

  • If you have leftover’s, put it in the freezer. It freezes well.

No-Guilt-Nog!

Bikini Body Mommy Healthy Eggnog recipe

There are certain drinks that are synonymous with the Christmas season... The first one that comes to mind for me, is Egg nog! Unfortunately, this creamy holiday beverage is traditionally very high in fat and sugar, and it is often made with rum -- which only adds to the already high calorie content. Well not to worry, my little Egg nog lovers -- I have a solution!

If you happen to love the flavour combination of vanilla, nutmeg, and rum as much as I do, but aren't crazy about gaining weight during the holidays -- then my Bikini Body Mommy NO-GUILT-NOG recipe is for you!

I make mine with rum extract, but if alcohol is a must for your holiday party this weekend, you can swap the extract for rum to make it a "Christmas cocktail."

If you are pregnant, currently breastfeeding, or plain just aren't a fan of drinking raw eggs (Let's face it, who has time to risk getting sick with salmonella during this time of the year?!) *Substitute the raw egg yolks and banana, with 1/2 cup of Fat-free vanilla pudding. The consistency and sweetness will be exactly the same as the original!

Bikini Body Mommy | No Guilt Nog Smoothie

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Coconut milk
1/4 cup Almond Milk
2 Egg yolks 1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4 tsp Nutmeg (or more if you prefer)
1/2 Banana 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (OPTIONAL)


Instructions:
1.  In blender, combine 2 egg yolks, and vanilla.
2.  Next add coconut milk, almond milk, and nutmeg.  Blend until well combined.  If you’re using protein powder, add now and blend until smooth.
3.  Next add banana.  Blend until it reaches the desired consistency.
4.  Pour, sprinkle with cinnamon, serve, and enjoy!

***For the alcoholic variation, reduce the coconut milk to 1/4 cup, and add 2 oz. of your favorite rum.

Thanks lovies!!! xx,-B

BIKINI BODY MOMMY | 5 DAY SLIM DOWN

Want to Drop a few LBS to get you Looking and Feeling your Best, before the weekend and your next big Holiday Party? Here's the SKINNY....

In case you happened to miss THIS POST ... I just found out yesterday that I have a very important photo shoot booked on VERY short notice, for this coming Tuesday -- which is just 5 days away... Eeeek! My slight initial panic over not feeling 100% ready to bare my ass-ets (pun intended) in front of the camera, got me thinking!  Being the holiday season, I know SO many of us have events that we really want to look and feel our best for, without a ton of time to make it happen -- right?!

Soooo... if you've read my BEST SELLING BOOK and follow my  NUTRITION PLAN, you already know that I am vehemently against crash dieting and other methods of EXTREME temporary weight loss, there are certainly methods that can be implemented to help you slim down and tone up in a short period of time, precisely for circumstances like the ones I just described!

With that said ...

yesterday

,

I asked all of you amazing bikini body mommies who are on FB, how many of you would appreciate me sharing the tips and "behind the scenes" scoop on how I'll go about getting "Photo-shoot Ready," over the course of the next 5 days?  Well

the response

, to be honest, was a little overwhelming -- but I listened!  Since the overwhelming majority of you wanted me to do a "once daily" blog of my daily regime over the next 5 Days -- HERE IT IS!

I also had numerous requests to post all 5 Days together, so that you wouldn't have to jump around the blog to find all 5 of them!  GREAT IDEA.So here's how this is going to work. I'm going to edit THIS ONE blog post -- every night, and add each subsequent day below the last --> SO MAKE SURE you come back each day, and scroll down to see the following day of the slim down! The complete Bikini Body Mommy 5 Day slim down outline can be found within my book, but this should give you enough of an idea of how it goes! Without further ado...

DECEMBER.

Christmas Holidays with Briana Christine

Well, here we are Bikini Body Mommies -- it’s December!  The year is nearly behind us, and it's time to start thinking about what we want 2013 to bring, right?!  Well, before you run off and start making your list of New Years' resolutions -- STOP.  I want you to go grab a cup of hot tea and a cozy blanket, and snuggle in! Being a Bikini Body Mommy is about BALANCE -- which is something I KNOW most of us mommies struggle with.  So this year, before all of the hectic holiday festivities and family commitments begin, I think it’s important that we take a short time-out to relax and reflect on the past year, and all that it has brought us. After all -- if January is the month of resolution, shouldn't December be the month of reflection? I think so.

As I sit in here in my jammies, snuggled up in my cozy blanket with a hot cup of “Swiss Apple tea” in hand (this sugar-free apple cider alternative, is a December staple for me!), I am reflective of all the changes that have happened in my own life this year.  It feels amazing to look back on 2012 and see more success than failure, and from the failure see lessons learned.  In fact, if there was a standard by which any given year could be judged, for me it would be looking back each December and being able to definitively say, "I am in a better place now than I was this time last year.”  I am thankful that this year, this is true for me.  As I look out my window to see the soft dusting of snow and twinkling lights in my neighborhood, it's tempting to start planning the coming year, and where I'd like to be this time in 2013.  But this year, I'm resisting.  Instead I'm going to take most of this last month of 2012 to live in the present, and enjoy the moment and place that I am in.

This also means taking the time to personally wish you and your loved ones, a very happy holiday season!  I am so grateful for your constant love and support of the workouts, nutrition advice, and other information I have been sending your way, and for helping to make Bikini Body Mommy the empowering positive platform for women that it is today.  I have personally connected with so many of you, and your individual stories this past month. Thank you so much for being both vulnerable and brave enough at the same time to share yourself with me.

Only a month into it’s launch,  there have been well over 100,000 of you ladies who have visited this blog, left comments, posted your daily progress on facebook, shared your family and daily life with me on instagram, emailed, tweeted, pinned my workouts, and spread your infectious happiness and motivation amongst the BIKINI BODY MOMMY COMMUNITY -- in turn motivating, helping, and inspiring countless others to do the same.  Even though this space is different from the "traditional" face-to-face personal training sphere that I am use to, words cannot express how much utter joy and LOVE goes into each and everyday of coaching, connecting, mentoring, inspiring, and communicating with every single one of you -- And how equally thankful I am that you are willing to communicate, connect, and inspire ME right back.The accumulation of all of the above, has made me so ridiculously happy that I took the tremendous leap of faith that was required at the beginning of this year, to leave everything

known, comfortable, and familiar behind.  As many of you who know my story, might have guessed -- 2012 has been one of the hardest, yet most empowering years of my life.

HARD:

  • Putting on a bikini 7 days after you give birth, is uncomfortable (some might argue INSANE).

  • Standing in front of the bright lights and scrupulous lens of a professional photographer week-after-week (often times without seeing much change) ... when you are personal trainer who is 100 pounds over weight -- is humiliating, humbling, and downright painful.

EMPOWERING:

  • Publicly transforming my body, ultimately loosing 100 pounds, writing a book, and founding this company, has not been easy -- but nothing worth while ever is.

SO THANK YOU, Bikini Body Mommies.  Thank you for believing in me -- IN THIS BIKINI BODY MOMMY MOVEMENT, and for giving me the motivation and support I need to continuously re-charge and push beyond my own boundaries of what I believe I'm capable of creating, achieving, and delivering to you all -- YOU LADIES ROCK MY WORLD!

All my Love,

DECEMBER.
