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 ...

If you love banana bread, banana muffins or anything related to banana deliciousness, these cookies are right up your sweet alley! At first I have to admit I was aiming to make a banana protein bread, but once I made the recipe I just knew these would be so much better as bite size little cookies instead of a slice of bread. 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 ...

Summer Meals that can be made in less than 10 minutes

When it comes to the summer time I love all things that can be made and eaten cold. When it is really warm out, like it is now in New Jersey, I feel like I could live on salads so what I like to do is test out new ones and add a ton of fresh, raw ingredients.

Question: What should I eat after I workout?

I get this question a lot so I figured it was time to share with you what a typical post-workout breakfast looks like for me. There are tons of great options for a healthy breakfast, but many are not optimal for goals when it comes to strength training or losing body fat. A “healthy” bowl of cereal can quickly become unhealthy by loaded in lots of sugars, fats and many times people do not actually eat the right servi ...

What does a typical dinner look like for me? Quick, healthy high protein dinner option recipes

Category: Recipes    

Here are some quick ideas for dinner time recipes and meal prep. While I do enjoy a really nice dinner out at a restaurant once in awhile, I have to say that I prefer to cook my own meals at home. When I go out to eat anywhere I always wondering how they are preparing my food, what are they putting in it, what oils are they using, etc. A lot of times restaurants use a lot of oils, creams, salt, etc and while it tastes delicious, I can never really tell how healthy or unhealthy it is for me.
