Protein Packed Blueberry Cereal

For some reason I was really craving cereal this morning! So, post workout I tried this concoction and loved it! I took 3 rice cakes and broke them up in a bowl (4 rice cakes for male serving size). Added 1/4c. frozen blueberries. Then I made a protein shake with 1 scoop whey protein (I use MRM brand Rich Vanilla flavor) and 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk. Poured over the 'cereal' as the mi ...[Read More]

Spicy Spinach Egg Whites

Here is my breakfast this morning and what I eat pretty much every morning for breakfast. 6 scrambled egg whites with spinach and black pepper with salsa on top. 1/2 cup old fashioned oats (not instant oats) cooked with a dash of almond milk and 1/4 cup frozen blueberries. I think this tastes really good and I don't really ever get tired of it. If I want to mix things up I will make my blueberry p ...[Read More]

Spinach Egg White Frittata FAIL

I hope I don't offend anyone by this post, but I thought it was funny enough to share. One of my favorite things about having this page is getting to share all my recipes with you guys. For me, the only way I can stick with a meal plan is if I really enjoy the food I am eating. So, I like to try a lot of new things in the kitchen, play around with different foods and spices, etc. I usually share w ...[Read More]

Spinach Scrambled Egg Whites

This is what I have for breakfast pretty much every day. Today was 4 egg whites, 1 whole egg scrambled with spinach, black pepper and reduced-sugar ketchup. 1/2 cup steel cut oats (measured dry) with almond milk, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, and cinnamon. I usually do old fashioned oats because it's faster but I made a big batch of steel cut oats yesterday so I just re-heated these real quick. I us ...[Read More]

Mint Chocolate Protein Bars

This was adapted from Jamie Eason's Cinnamon Swirl Bread recipe, but I made my own changes. I think these are so good! One very important tip. The homemade protein bars have no preservatives in them. So, if you make them you MUST keep them in the fridge or the freezer or they will spoil after one day left on the counter. I learned this the hard way.  I usually let them cool then put 4 squares in a ...[Read More]

Sweet Potato and Egg Breakfast Casserole

I make this occasionally for breakfast.  It tastes so good to me!  It takes a little longer to prep than my regular spicy egg whites and so I usually prep it the night before and then in the morning all I have to do is stick it in the oven to cook while I am getting ready for the day.   Ingredients (makes 2 servings)   10-12 ounces diced and peeled sweet potatoes or yams (I like to buy t ...[Read More]

Homemade Protein Bar Recipe – Add Your Own Flavors!

Here is my base protein bar recipe.  Once you have this part down all you need to do is add your own extracts to create your own flavor of bars!  I usually do 2-3tsp extract per batch.   One very important tip. The homemade protein bars have no preservatives in them. So, if you make them you MUST keep them in the fridge or the freezer or they will spoil after one day left on the counter. I learned ...[Read More]

Strawberry Banana Oatmeal Bake

Oatmeal Banana Bake - one word - heaven! 🙂 Here is a great healthy alternative to banana bread.  You could do various modifications to this recipe with different fruits (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, peaches, apples, etc).  This is a very family-friendly recipe and my two-year old had fun helping me slice the bananas with a butter knife and mix the ingredients together.  Because of the b ...[Read More]

Blueberry Protein Pancake Recipe

There are a lot of protein pancake recipes out there, but I really like this one because incorporates only whole foods and is something I can make that my two-year old loves too!  This is one of my favorite ways to eat my egg whites in the morning. Ingredients (makes 1 serving): 6 egg whites ½ cup old fashioned oats 1 tsp baking powder ½ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I like Almond Breeze br ...[Read More]

Sweet Potato and Zucchini Mini Frittata

If you don't like zucchini you should still try this recipe! You can't taste the zucchini and it adds a lot of volume to these. Here is a picture of them before I put them in the oven. I have a picture after they are cooked, but I think steam got in my camera or something because the picture is all blurry. I love making mini frittatas! I feel so fancy when I eat them, haha. These are awesome if yo ...[Read More]
