Single-Serving Paleo Blueberry French Toast

Single-Serving Paleo Blueberry French Toast

This was one of my random ideas. Inspired by making a paleo bread recipe that did not rise (pictures are always deceiving), I was slicing it up and thought I could make these little slices into french toast sticks. Then that developed into french toast […]

Carrot Cake Protein Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Protein Oatmeal

This is an oldie but goodie. I made it this time last year actually because what’s a more appropriate time of year for carrot cake?? I haven’t been eating grains since February but I tried adding oatmeal back in last week and it didn’t work […]

Brownie Batter Protein Pancakes (with Cashew Butter Frosting)

Brownie Batter Protein Pancakes (with Cashew Butter Frosting)

So I like to make protein pancakes. Since Justin doesn’t really like my vegan protein powder I’m not making them as often for the two of us. It’s usually a regular Sunday thing because we love hitting the gym together Sunday mornings and what’s a […]

Cilantro-Lime Coconut Shrimp and Zoodles

Cilantro-Lime Coconut Shrimp and Zoodles

Shrimp and zoodles go so well together. They make for a really delicious, but light meal. Even with all the coconut milk in this dish, it isn’t heavy at all. I wanted to make some lighter dishes this week since I’m actually taking a recovery […]

Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

Salted Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

This salted dark chocolate almond butter might be my favorite nut butter so far. It’s a close call with this and the sunflower-coconut. I made it last Sunday because Justin skipped the gym. I was up early and did a little apartment gym workout before 8am. Then […]

2017 Muscle-Building Meal Plan: Week 14

So it’s clear that since I’m on week 14 of these re-caps I’ve been working pretty damn hard the muscle-building thing. This week though…not the best week in the world. It’s the final week of Lifetime’s 60-day-challenge and while I had some major goals to hit, […]

Quick Paleo English Muffins

Quick Paleo English Muffins

I tried a couple recipes for these English muffins and found one I absolutely love. I adapted the recipe from Sugar Free Mom. The first time I made her recipe they were perfect. I used sunflower butter in place of cashew butter and they were thick […]

Lemon Cashew Protein Blondies {Dairy-Free, Gluten Free, Vegan}

Lemon Cashew Protein Blondies {Dairy-Free, Gluten Free, Vegan}

I baked these to take to work and pass out last weekend but then ran out of time. So I ate them all. And gave some to a co-worker who requested them. Then she loved them so much I gave her the rest of what […]

Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken

Sometimes I feel like I just shouldn’t plan my meals because the things I don’t plan end up being awesome. I just use things I have and wa-la! Fun things like this happen. We got some chicken at BJ’s last weekend when we got our […]

Dairy Free Sweet Potato Protein Mousse

Dairy Free Sweet Potato Protein Mousse

Two of my favorite things: sweet potato and protein desserts. Why not combine the two? Since limiting dairy in my diet I have found other ways to make some protein desserts without using Greek yogurt or cottage cheese like I normally would on a nightly […]
