Muscle-Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 31

Muscle-Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 31

The Workouts: This olympic lifting plan is fantastic. I love doing new things and seeing so much progress right away. Things I accomplished: Power clean and jerk went from a difficult 60lbs to an easy 70lbs – still some form things to work on but […]

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

Sweet Potato Sausage “Hot Dogs”

I saw this idea on the Lifetime Weightloss Blog. They post some great articles and recipes on it so I’m on there pretty often! I saw the photo of this and thought it was “adorable” to make something that simply looked like a hot dog out […]

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Waffle

Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Waffle

This was my first successful egg-less protein waffle. I have yet to master egg-less pancakes but I might need to because I miss those too. And I definitely can’t have eggs as much as I used to. That has been confirmed. Of course my first protein […]

Strawberry Banana Coconut Avocado Protein Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Coconut Avocado Protein Smoothie

It’s summertime which means I enjoy particular summer flavors of things. I love eating for the season for several reasons: First reason is because I buy what’s in season (sales!). Second reason is there is some sort of comfort about eating particular foods in certain weather. Curling […]

Muscle-Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 30

This was a better week. My energy and mood are up, food was delicious, Justin’s Mom was in town for a few days to help keep him off his feet so he can finally get back to work tomorrow, and I’m doing new and exciting […]

Chocolate Coconut Avocado Pudding

Avocado pudding is my jam. I’m doing less “protein desserts” because I’m noticing I really don’t need as much protein supplementation, and I need more carbs. But I can’t live without my chocolate fix so recipes like this happen frequently. This time I went the coconut […]

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

Burgers with Raspberry Chipotle Ketchup

These were my first BEEF burgers in a loooooong time. I realized I needed more B-Vitamins and Iron for my energy levels so I started incorporating red meat again. Last week it was steak and veggies. The week before I made these burgers because 93% ground beef […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

Peanut Butter and Jelly Overnight Oats

I’m on this peanut butter and jelly kick lately. I think I just have some serious nostalgia for it. Plus Justin really loves an occasional PB&J sandwich and I get jealous. Without bread in my life it’s difficult to get the same effect but these […]

Muscle Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 29

Muscle Building Meal Plan: 2017 Week 29

It’s been a tough week. Justin’s recovering from surgery and it’s slower progress than the surgeon had hoped for. But he’s a trooper and I’m doing my best to take care of him when I’m not working. It hasn’t been easy for either of us […]

Chocolate Strawberry Coconut Cream Proatmeal

Chocolate Strawberry Coconut Cream Proatmeal

I’m getting back in to the proatmeal thing lately because not having eggs for breakfast means sausage and vegetables gets boring really quick. The solution is to have sweet  breakfasts instead. My protein will come from protein powder and then I’m cutting out the post-workout […]
