Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

Creole Shrimp with Red Beans and Rice

This Creole Shrimp is now one of my favorite meals. It’s probably only the second or third time I’ve made a similar dish. It’s easy (aside from peeling shrimp). I love shrimp but can only afford the frozen stuff on sale. It’s a shame. Luckily when I […]

Strawberry Cashew Protein Oatmeal

Strawberry Cashew Protein Oatmeal

I’m starting to have sweet breakfasts more often since I have given up eggs for 30 days. This means protein waffles and oatmeal galore!! It’s quite exciting. And I’m cutting back on the healthy treats I always bake to try to eliminate my constant chocolate […]

Muscle Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 28

Muscle Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 28

Another meal prep Sunday coming your way! This was my second week of adding a little more variety in. I have managed to stash a lot of stuff in the freezer and when cleaning it out/organizing it a few days ago I realized I’ll be […]

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

Baked Chicken & Strawberry Jalapeno Salsa

I just ate this moments before writing this and I just have to brag about it for a minute. I marinated this chicken at about 4:30 this morning (the day that I’m writing this)…I woke up, unable to sleep as usual and felt like getting […]

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Waffle (Vegan, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free)

Strawberry Shortcake Protein Waffle (Vegan, Dairy Free, and Gluten Free)

It took me seven tries to get this protein waffle recipe right…SEVEN. Roughly. I think I lost count after 4 or 5. I’m not surprised though because making something delicious without eggs, dairy or gluten is extremely challenging. I made this strawberry shortcake one the […]

The Workouts and Nutrition Workouts: I started the second round of Charlie Mike – however I’m modifying it quite a bit. Here’s my new schedule: Sunday – Endurance day – basically as much cardio that takes up the amount of time Justin works out for […]

Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

Honey Chipotle Lime Baked Meatballs

These meatballs are probably the tastiest ones I’ve made yet and no recipe inspiration was used. I simply used the chipotle peppers and limes I needed for the peach glaze I made this week and turned them into meatballs. I served them with quinoa, jalapenos […]

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (Dairy-Free!)

Chocolate Coconut Almond Butter (Dairy-Free!)

So I love my salted dark chocolate almond butter. I just recently finished up the second batch I made and it’s a good thing because it had non-dairy-free chocolate in it. Even if it’s trace amounts I want to try to stay away from it […]

Chipotle Peach Glazed Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower and Collard Greens

Chipotle Peach Glazed Chicken with Roasted Cauliflower and Collard Greens

I’m trying to go more outside of my box lately. I want to add variety and do different things than some of my go-to’s (like Mexican food). So I made a TON of this Chipotle peach glaze over the weekend and only used it on […]

Dairy-Free Brownie Batter Overnight Protein Oats

Dairy-Free Brownie Batter Overnight Protein Oats

I started mixing things up and making these overnight oats ahead of time for my post-workout snack (meal?). I used to blend a smoothie in the morning, stick it in the freezer when I got to work, and then after my workout it would be […]
