Paleo Protein Banana Bread

Paleo Protein Banana Bread

I have a love for banana bread that runs deep. My mom used to make very traditional banana bread quite often as I was growing up and I loved patting it down with a giant square of butter after popping it in the microwave, and […]

Muscle-Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 22

Muscle-Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 22

I got ahead of myself with what week it was and not sure I ever actually shared my week 21 meal plan– check it out if you missed it! This week was great. I was trying to mix things up and NOT eat the same two meals […]

Oatmeal and Sausage Tikka Masala

Oatmeal and Sausage Tikka Masala

So I had a stroke of brilliance this week. It happens rarely. So often my recipes are just inspired by other recipes I see on Pinterest. I don’t necessarily follow them – I try to make them my own. Plus having my phone out in the […]

Chocolate Protein Chia Pudding

Chocolate Protein Chia Pudding

Seared Ahi Tuna Asian Salad

So I made this a while ago actually and it was when I had stopped using My Fitness Pal for a few months…so the recipe is generated from the chicken scratch notes I took down on it. I saw Aldi had some frozen ahi tuna […]

All Natural Chocolate Avocado Protein Pudding

All Natural Chocolate Avocado Protein Pudding

Now I know I’ve posted some recipes like this chocolate avocado pudding in the past but I’ve tinkered with it a lot and tried some different things based on what my diet “rules” were at the time. For example, my lower-carb diet days I would […]

Muscle Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 20

Okay so straight up – these posts take too much work. I love the accountability they give me though and want to keep committing to them. However, I feel as though most of my readers don’t give a shit about the minute details of every […]
