Chocolate Egg White Puffs

Here is what my egg white puffs look like.  Sometimes I will eat my egg whites this way at night right before I go to bed.  This isn't my favorite egg white recipe, but it works in a pinch.  If you wanted, you could add peanut butter, or any other extracts for different flavors.  This is a recipe I got from Tambrika Simpson in the Jamie Eason LiveFit Facebook group and I adapted it a little bit fo ...[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]

Smoky Chicken Tortilla Soup

This just might be the best thing I have ever made. If you don't want to make ANY of the recipes I post - you should at least try this one! It turned out so so good! Although I can't really take credit for it. It actually is a Rachel Ray recipe but I changed a bunch of ingredients to make it clean 🙂 I tripled the recipe in the cookbook and it made about ten to twelve 1.5-cup servings. It only took ...[Read More]

Frozen Egg White Dessert

This is how I eat my egg whites pretty much every single night (I eat all six).  Typically I eat my frozen egg whites, brush my teeth, and head to bed. I put 6 egg whites, a dash of unsweetened almond milk, about 2-3 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 tiny scoop of Kal Stevia (you can also use 2 Truvia packets but that has 3g carbs per packet) and 1 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder You just want to make sure you ...[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]
