A breakfast packed with protein and energy

Category: Recipes    

For a long time I was, like many, scared about eating anything like oatmeal because it was “too many carbs” – fast forward to now when so many of those myths for me have been debunked. I now make sure that having carbs, and I mean GOOD carbs, are a part of my daily routine. I never believe that low carb diets will ever work for me, I just am not a happy person to be around if I am eating minimal amounts of carbs. Oatmeal though is a great source of carbohydrates and ene ...

8 High Protein Foods To Add To Your Diet and Meal Prepping

Category: Primary Menu     Fitness    

When it comes to reaching your daily macros (macronutrients) it’s important to identify high protein foods that are clean, healthy and high in protein but not high in calories. The word “protein” is being added to tons of marketing materials and onto boxes that really don’t have a lot of protein grams, but because it’s a “buzz” word to big CPG brands it’s important to beware and know some of the best protein sources out there for your diet and meal ...

Whether you work a full time job with a crazy commute, are juggling the house and kids or are in school and bouncing from class to class, let’s face it – sometimes it’s easier to just grab something on the go from the vending machine or local convenience store. While it does take more work and time to pack and prepare your meals I have to say that doing so has kept me on ...

If you love the taste of peanut butter cookies, but are looking for a great recipe to turn those into a loaf of delicious, high protein bread – look no further.

Red Velvet Protein Munchkins Recipe

Category: Recipes    

If there is one flavor that I love but can never find enough baking ingredients with it that are healthy, it’s Red Velvet. I was very excited to get my hands on the brand new flavor of protein peanut spread from Buff Bake in Red Velvet. Once I tried this I knew I had to come up with a fun recipe (or a few) to add this to. I can’t remember the last time I had an actual donut, it has to be a few years – so it was a great opportunity to try to make a h ...

A super simple way to marinade your salmon filet

Category: Recipes    

When it comes to fish, particularly salmon filet, I find that the less ingredients you use to marinade your fish the better. Salmon is one of the best seafoods you can eat since it is packed with heart healthy omega 3 fish oils. The salmon filet is particularly easy to cook whether in home or on a grill. In the summer time I like to wrap it in aluminum foil and place it on the outdoor bbq grill and cook it that way with some roasted vegetables for a perfect dinner. Whether you eat salmon or not, ...

If you love banana bread, banana muffins or anything related to banana deliciousness, these cookies are right up your sweet alley!

They came out so soft and chewy which made them perfect for popping into your mouth, especially when you are on the go. I like to take protein recipes like this with me in a ...

A healthy recipe for protein brownies

Brownies are one of the desserts I can fondly remember as a child my mother making pretty often. The recipe she used was always so chocolate-y and gooey and delicious, which I am sure also meant it was loaded with lots of sugars and flours and other ingredients that made them extremely unhealthy. When I made this batch of brownies I had a few male taste testers over and when they asked what it was made with they were shocked to hear bl ...
