Welcome to Faithful Workouts! Our mission is to come alongside you and offer resources that bring health to your body and soul, so you can experience life to the fullest. We offer Christian workout videos that use inspirational music and biblical encouragement, as well as recipes, meal plans and Bible reading plans!
Here at Faithful Workouts, we take encouraging fellowship and community very seriously! We believe one of the best ways to facilitate a Christ-like community, is to fellowship together through meal time. There are many examples in the Bible of how meal time was used as a way for people to gather, to experience love and togetherness.
When Jesus fed the 5,000 (Matthew 14:13-21) and during the last supper when Jesus broke bread with His disciples and ministered to them (Luke 22:7-39). Mealtime can be a special time not only for loved ones to come together but as a way for us to reach out to those in need physically and spiritually.
We know cooking and hosting a meal can feel like an overwhelming task especially when you are trying to prepare a healthy one, so we've created this full menu plan that will make it much easier so you can focus on serving and loving on those you are hosting.
Appetizer: Homemade Hummus and Veggies
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup plain yogurt or Tahini for Dairy Free
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1 (16 ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (Organic is best)
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
- Salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients except parsley in a blender. Process until smooth. Put in a bowl and stir in parley and serve with fresh vegetables.
Main Course: Pork with Olive- Caper Sauce
- 1 pound pork tenderloin
- 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (Use a gluten free flour if gluten sensitivity)
- 2 tblsp olive oil
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth – low-fat, low-sodium, organic is best, if you are gluten sensitive use gluten-free broth like Pacific
- 1/2 cup pitted olives (I like Kalamata), chopped
- 2 tblsp. capers
- 2 tblsp. fresh parsley, chopped
Slice pork into 1” thick pieces. Dust both sides of pork with flour. Put 1 tbsp oil in a pan and heat. Add 1/2 of pork and cook 3 minutes on each side. Remove pork and put on plate. Add remaining oil and pork to pan. Again, cook 3 minutes on each side. Add all pork to the pan and pour in broth. Bring to a boil. Turn down heat to low and stir in yogurt, olives and capers, cook over for 3 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
Dessert: Mango, Coconut Chia Seed Pudding (prepare in advance so it's ready to go!)
- Cashew Milk: 1.5 Cups
- Coconut Milk: 1 Can (14 oz)
- Vanilla: 1 Tsp
- Frozen Organic Mango: 2 Cups Thawed or 2 Whole Mango Diced
- Chia Seeds: 1/2 Cup
Put cashew milk, coconut milk and vanilla in medium size pot. Blend mango until smooth and add to pot. Add Chia seeds and stir. Cover and cook over low heat for approximately 20 minutes, stirring often.
Serve warm or cold. I like it over sliced banana or you can sprinkle toasted coconut over it!
