Preggers DVD & 2 things I need from you!

And that's a Wrap!  Ahhh, my favorite words after 12 hours of shooting our videos!  We shot the new Pregnancy DVDs here in St. Louis.  And I gotta tell you, they are not only awesome because of Laila and Erin (our prego mommies), but they will offer so much!  Pregnancy Stackers, Toning, Muscle Splits for Pregnancy, Core, Yoga and more!  And of course trimester-specific to keep mom and baby safe.  Coming this fall:)

So on to what I need form you!  We are not just releasing our new Pregnancy DVDs this fall, we have our Post-Post-Natal Challenge (see those pictures from Pampano Beach 2 posts below this one)!  We are in the midst of the meal plan for the Post-Post-Natal Challenge and I want to here from YOU what meals work for you and your family.  Ya know, something less than5-7 ingredients and made with ease! 

Then myself and the MIF R.D., Stephanie, are going to go through your top picks.  Of course if it comes from a Cook Book or recipe from somebody other than a friend or family, let us know so we can give proper credit!

What would you like to see in a Meal Plan?  Please post your recipes in the comments section below.  Thank ya!!!


  1. Some of my new favorites are from Dashing Dish (
    My 3 year old LOVES Chicken Enchilada Pockets:

    We like Pizzucchini is pretty easy:

    We just did Mini Mexican Pizzas and they were super tasty:

    I'm excited for the new workouts! Thanks for keepin' it real for us everyday Moms! :)

  2. YAY LINDSAY!! New preggo workouts :) We hope to have more children, and I credit your other pregnancy workouts with my quick recovery from my last baby. I worked out religiously with them for two and a half trimesters (until I got SPD and could no longer walk!), and absolutely loved that time for myself. Then I switched to the post natal boot camp, and was shocked how fast I got back into my clothes. So anyway, I'm so excited that you're putting out something new. Thanks for fun, challenging, doable workouts. I haven't found anything else on the market like what you're doing :)

  3. I'm in my second trimester and am excited to find your site from a friend's referral.

    Here's one our family's favorite recipes:

    Chicken Capri:

    4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked

    1 cup ricotta cheese

    1/2 tsp. oregano

    1/4 tsp. black pepper

    1/4 tsp. salt

    1/4 tsp. garlic powder(optional)

    1 cup crushed tomatoes or spaghetti sauce

    1-2 cups Italian Blended Shredded Cheese

    Preheat oven to 350.

    Mix ricotta, oregano, black pepper, salt, and garlic powder(blend if you must!).

    Spoon enough of the ricotta cheese mixture to cover each chicken breast.

    Spread crushed tomatoes on top. Sprinkle with cheese.

    Bake for 20 minutes or until juices run clear.

    *I adapted this recipe from South Beach diet book.

  5. Super duper easy recipe:

    Italian (Dressing) Fajitas

    Chicken breast, cut in to strips
    Red onion, sliced for fajitas
    Green Peppers, sliced
    Toppings: light sour cream, salsa, olives, cheese

    Cook chicken with 4 TB. of Italian dressing. Set aside.
    Cook 2 TB italian dressing with the veggies. Combine to warm chicken mixture.

    Eat in a tortilla.

    Seriously so easy and my kids and hubby love it!

  6. Love your post partum DVDs and read your book while I was pregnant and used much of the exercises to stay in shape. Love the DVDs! Love that I get sore from them and they are quick and easy to do from home. Still trying to work out how to balance them along with working. Its hard with a new baby to fit everything in!

    Here is a great dinner idea, well maybe no in the summer. I live here in St. Louis as well and I refuse to turn on the oven when it is so hot. Nothing but grilling going on here.

    Chicken, green beans, and potatoes
    (can use just 2 chicken breasts)

    • 6 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 lemons, 1 thinly sliced, 1 juiced
    • 4 cloves garlic
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
    • 3/4 lb green beans
    • 8 small red potatoes, quartered
    • 4 chicken breasts


    Preheat oven to 450. Coat a large baking dish with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Arrange lemon slices from 1 lemon in a single layer on the bottom of the dish. In large bowl combine remaining olive oil, lemon juice of 2nd lemon, garlic, salt and pepper. Add green beans and toss to coat. Using tongs, remove green beans and arrange them on top of lemon slices. Add potatoes to same olive oil mixture and coat. Arrange on inside edge of dish on top of the beans. (I think it’s so pretty!) I also add a lemon pepper mixture on top of everything. It adds a lot of flavor.Place chicken in olive oil mixture and coat. Place chicken in dish. Roast for 40-50 minutes. Remove chicken and continue roasting potatoes/beans if necessary.

  7. wish i looked that cute when i was pregnant!! :)

  8. Soooooo excited for new pregnancy DVD's for the next time I get pregnant (in the somewhat distant future, but still planning on having more kids)!

    Here's an easy recipe:


    Brown 1 pound of turkey burger

    Add your favorite spaghetti sauce (from or can or homemade)

    Steam frozen veggies (whatever is your favorite--we love broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, asparagus, yellow squash, etc)

    Pour sauce over veggies.


    (sometimes I do a combo of wheat noodles and veggies to make it have a little more sustenance, but you can eat a lot when you just do veggies!)

  9. Have been doing your pregnacy dvds and I Love them! :) I am 15 weeks right now so im hoping to get the new pregnancy dvd in the fall!:)

  10. Can you tell us more about the post natal challenge?

  11. Banana-Oat Muffins

    3 bananas, mashed
    2 cups oats (you can grind them if you want)
    1/4 cup sugar
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp vanilla

    Bake 350 for about 15 minutes

  12. Lindsay, excited about all your new programs coming out! You're a rockstar :)

    One of my new favorite dinner recipes is
    Rice and Bean burritos--this is super easy and takes hardly anytime

    Brown Rice-Make according to directions
    1 can Black Beans
    1 Can Red Kidney beans
    1 can green chilles
    Mix all cans together in a pot and heat on medium

    Add bean and rice mix to a tortillas and eat
    Toppings you can use is
    Yogurt--in place of sour cream
    Little bit of Shredded Cheese


  13. Very excited to see a new prenatal video! Baby #2 for us is due in December, so I hope I can make some good use of it! On to a recipe:

    Crock Pot Santa Fe Chicken

    4 - 6 chicken breasts
    1 can of corn, drained and rinsed
    1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
    1 cup of salsa (heat level is your taste preference)
    1 tablespoon of cilantro

    Place all ingredients in a lightly greased (sprayed) crock pot. Cook on low for 7-8 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours (or based on your crock pots programmed settings). Shred chicken with forks. Serve on warm flour tortillas with tomatoes, shredded cheddar cheese, and tomatoes. (The longer/slower you cook the chicken, the easier it shreds, but it's still good if you do it in a hurry!)

  14. My husband is not going to know what to do when we have a whole new menu at the house:) These all look yummy!

    I am such a crock potter, and my husband continually makes fun of me. Whatever, its food on the table, and healthier than eating out:)

  15. PostNatal Challenge, we have a few options! Go to our 30 Day Challnege on pinterest /MIFmom (totally free) or try our 4 free workouts at or download our 3 phase postnatal challenge here for $9.99

  16. Thanks for the post natal info

  17. I do whole wheat pita pizzas. Basically, you just take a whole wheat pita, put some tomato/pasta sauce on, then low moisture part skim mozzarella, and top with whatever veggies you have on hand (olives, peppers, zucchini, onions, basil, tomatoes) and sometimes I add cooked diced chicken for protein. Put in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes. My kids eat these as well as any pizza, but they are way more healthy and easy to do.

  18. spinach and chicken curry made in a slow cooker- my recipe

    2 cups of chicken diced
    2 cup of rice
    2 cups chopped spinach
    5 cups of water or chicken stock
    1/2 cup of plain yogurt
    1 tbsp curry spice
    2 cloves of garlic minced

    put it all in the slow cooker and cook for 4-6 hours on high or 8-10 hours on low. All slow cookers are a bit different

    I have a big family so this makes enough for me and my 4 kids that eat, plus some left over. The recipe could be cut for smaller families.

  19. my kids have been loving whole wheat lasagna roll ups

    recipe from
    1 (16 ounce) package uncooked whole wheat lasagna noodles
    1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
    1 (15 ounce) container ricotta cheese
    1 cup shredded cheese
    (1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry) - optional
    1 (28 ounce) jar pasta sauce


    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook lasagna noodles for 5 to 8 minutes, or until just slightly underdone; drain and rinse. let sit until cool
    In a large mixing bowl, mix together grated cheese, ricotta cheese, (frozen spinach) and cheese.
    Lay out a noodle. Spread a layer of the cheese mixture on the noodle, then add a thin layer of sauce. Roll the noodle up, and place seam side down in a 9x13 pan. Repeat for other noodles. Top with remaining sauce and cheese mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
    Bake covered for 30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degree C) oven and open for another 1/2 hour until bubbly

    question lindsay: im doing the pregnancy cardio every day 1-3-5 and yoga on days 2 and 4. im currently 14 weeks and i started the second tri videos. i was wondering is this helpful? bc sometimes i feel like i havent really done much of a workout. not sweating much. is it the best i can do during a pregnancy? is it good enough?

  20. Lindsay, I have a question. The sweet tooth in my family runs deep...I mean REALLY deep. Type 2 diabetes is rampant, and it's not because we're heavy set or overweight--it's just a nasty beast in our genes. Anyway, I love sugar like you can't believe. When I'm on my periods, I eat sweets for meals instead of food, and right now while I'm nursing full time I sort of have the same inclination. On days when I eat a dessert (when I eat a treat it's something decadent. I don't waste my time eating a few oreos--it's more like cheesecake factory cheesecake or homemade red velvet cake, or cookies the size of a softball. You get the jist?)is it a good idea to do any extra workout or do I really need to be one of those people who eats a stick of gum to try and curb the sweet tooth? Help!

    Woman with a sweet tooth

  21. After every baby (3) I spend the first 30 days eating a salad with two boiled eggs for atleast one meal. It keeps me full of fresh veggies and protein, and helps me drop the baby pounds. My husband and now my kids are on board, so we still do this atleast one night per week.

    For my family of five:
    Boil 7 eggs, portion out raw spinach into bowls. Add baby carrots, red peppers, cucumbers and crushed pecans on top. Once the eggs are boiled, mandolin slice them into pieces. Drizzle with a bit of Balsamic Vinegar and Lemon Juice and you have yourself a healthy, filling dinner. My kids are ages 4, 2 and 1 and all love salad night. They each eat one entire egg (usually dipped in Ranch) and will much on atleast one of every veggie.

  22. I cannot wait to try all these recipes myself:)

    Woman with a sweet tooth, is there a way to limit it to 200-300 calories a day? Or is that impossible?

  23. Anonymous in 2nd tri, hi! Love the roll up recipe:)

    It sounds like you must be n pretty good shape. It's ok to not feel wiped after a workout. In fact within 15 minutes you should be fully recovered. But it does sound like you need a little more. In fact, our new prego DVDs have 2 totally different workouts for beginner and advanced. It sounds like it will be right up your alley.

    Email Jess at and tell her I sent you. We can give you a free copy when they release late August in exchange for a review!

  24. Thank you so much :) i eagerly await it, and will be honored to give my review.

  25. Lindsay, where is this white tank top from that you are wearing in the picture?

  26. Danielle, its lulu lemon. $50 and worth every penny, I wear it all the time. Good for pregnancy too!

  27. Hi Lindsay,
    Love the videos, did your 60 day slimdown and I was blown away by the results!!! Could you please tell me when your prenatal series will come out? I have the first on and LOVE them, and just got pregnant with #2, so I want to mix it up!

    Here's my recipe:


    Put a little bit of olive oil, oregano, garlic powder and lemon juice on sliced chicken breast and gril.

    Roll up the chicken in a pita with tomato, onions (if you like em) and tzatziki... Delicious!!!

    One of our family favorites!

  28. Lanie, thanks for the recipes!

    I am so glad you want to switch it up! The new prego DVDs should be out at the latest-end of September.

  29. First of all I want to say I am SUPER excited about the NEW Dvd's coming! I am a first time pregger's Mom :) 15 weeks along and I have bought your book AND am doing the Pregnancy DVD's! I love it! I had this preconceived notion I would be able to keep up with my high intensity classes at the gym and continue running, but my first trimester was harder then I expected and your workouts kept me on track even on days when I was nauseated and tired! Thank you so much! I also LOVE your honesty and candidness on your getting your body back blog updates :) So encouraging!

    As for a simple meal that my husband and I enjoy:

    2 garlic cloves
    3 cups (approx) baby spinach
    1 fresh whole tomato, diced
    3 cups quinoa pasta (gluten free)
    Cooking olive oil
    Fresh pressed olive oil (if you have it)

    1. Cook your pasta noodles
    2. Meanwhile heat the cooking olive oil (about 1-2 tsp) in a skillet on medium heat, add garlic, brown garlic for about 30 seconds.
    3. Add diced tomato, cook for about 1 minute making sure to keep the heat medium to medium low, you don't want to burn the garlic or over cook the tomato
    4. Add the spinach, let wilt/ shrink up
    5. Add your cooked drained pasta to the hot skillet and stir for about 30 seconds
    6. Remove from heat then add about 1 tbsp. of good quality olive oil

    You can add chicken to this dish for added protein.

  30. Thanks for the recipe Mrs. Wear! And congrats on the pregnancy! I hope 1st trimester yuckiness has surpassed!

  31. We are loving blueberry eggs inspired by Holley Rigsby over at Fit Yummy Mummy. It could not be easier and the baby gobbles them up every time! To me it tastes like a warm blueberry muffin without the sugar rush or guilt. Try it. I know you'll be hooked too!

    Coconut oil in the pan (makes the eggs fluffy)
    Break the eggs directly into the pan and scramble around (no need for an extra bowl here just mix over the heat)
    When the eggs start to stiffen add a handful of fresh blueberries (don't add the berries until the eggs are at least half way cooked or they will burst and you will just have blue eggs with no interesting berry texture)
    Devour immediately. :)

    Loving the recipes in the comments so far. Can't wait to see your meal plan.



  32. Hi! I have 20 month old twins and used your bootcamp 2 DVD and your Core Firing Sequence Method when the twins were 8 months old and a friend told me about you! They helped so much! I was even able to run a half marathon in 1:58:03 before the twins turned one (a long time post pregnancy goal for me). You were also the one who taught me about diastasis recti, which I definitely had (went to 38 weeks with the twins and they were 7lbs 2oz and 7lbs 12oz and I'm only 5'4"!) I'm now 12 weeks along with #3 (only one baby this time!) and I was hoping so much to do your new pregnancy DVDs! I would rather not pay for the older ones then have the new ones released just a few weeks later...Do you know a more specific date they are going to come out? I've just been doing lots of running (did another half marathon at 8 weeks pregnant!) and some strength training, but now I'm more limited since i'm 12 weeks....Thank you!

  33. Jessica, I see why you had DR! 7 lb twins! Congrats on #3!

    We are releasing in about 3-4 weeks. I am on rough cut edit #3 and then we will be on the final version and then about 10 days for replication. So I recommend signing up for the free trial on and using those workouts until the new ones are released. Hope that helps!

  34. Perfect! thank you so much!!

  35. This may be a little late, but I thought I would throw it up here for anyone who happens to look.

    Chicken Lime Tacos (Crockpot)

    2-3 chicken breasts

    Sprinkle with chili powder to lightly cover and squeeze the juice of 1 lime over the chicken.

    Cook on low for 4-5 hrs.

    Shred chicken in crockpot and add either 1 cup frozen corn or 1 can corn (drained) and a large jar of salsa.

    Place lid on crockpot for about 30 minutes, until the mixture is warm.

    We eat this in tortillas and top with fresh greens and tomatoes, or it is also wonderful atop a bed of lettuce with a little cilantro ranch dressing!

  36. I think I will try that for dinner tomorrow Lisa!

  37. Do you have a date set for your new pregnancy dvds to be released?

    1. They are in replication right now! Pre-orders will start this week. I will be sure to post when they are released!

  38. What about a pregnancy meal plan? I gained 60 lbs. with my first pregnancy and now for the second one I don't want that to happen. Please help!

    1. Email Jess at and ask her to send you our Moms Into Nutrition ebook. And just mention I wanted to give it to you free of charge. Congrats on the pregnancy!
