Spinach and Artichoke Hummus

Spinach and Artichoke Hummus

I made this once before and then ate it all before I got a chance to photograph it. Hummus is quite literally one of the easiest snacks to make yourself as long as you have a good blender. It doesn’t take long to blend everything […]

Peppermint Mocha Protein Pancakes

Peppermint Mocha Protein Pancakes

I made these peppermint mocha pancakes because, well peppermint mocha is kind of my thing this holiday season. It’s such a good combo and I’ve made peppermint mocha shakes, peppermint mocha protein pudding, and peppermint mocha brownies already. I think oats will be next. UPDATE: Still haven’t […]

Edamame Quinoa Stir Fry

Edamame Quinoa Stir Fry

Happy Meatless Monday: Installment #3. This stir fry was super tasty and had tons of protein in it from edamame and quinoa. Being vegetarian now I almost always opt for quinoa instead of rice because it’s much higher in protein. I like rice if it’s […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Oatmeal

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Oatmeal

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 […]

Eggnog Protein Waffle

Eggnog Protein Waffle

This was supposed to be done on Waffle Wednesday, but I couldn’t get it finished yesterday morning due to WINDOWS FREAKING UPDATES. But it’s not like anyone is anxiously waiting at their computers for my weekly waffle recipe, amiright? So here it is, on Thursday […]

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

Butternut Squash Burrito Bowls

As I transitioned to being a vegetarian I while also being the main cook of the apartment I was playing with meals that could easily be “just add meat” meals. Things I could make for Justin and I that he could then cook meet separately […]

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 […]

Salted Caramel Mocha Protein Waffles

Salted Caramel Mocha Protein Waffles

Salted Caramel Mocha…waffles? That’s right, it’s not a latté but it’s even better. Have your salted caramel mocha latté in breakfast form with yet another Waffle Wednesday recipe. By now you hopefully have seen some other waffle recipes and noticed they’re all very similar. I […]

Meatless Monday: Chickpea Thai Peanut Veggie Burgers

Meatless Monday: Chickpea Thai Peanut Veggie Burgers

Happy Monday! I’ve been busy making my own vegetarian recipes lately so I’ll be rolling out a Meatless Monday theme here for several weeks. These Thai peanut veggie burgers weren’t my first veggie burgers. In fact, I have made two different veggie burgers – both […]

Vegan Double Chocolate Protein Banana Bread

Vegan Double Chocolate Protein Banana Bread

There’s a not-so chocolatey version of this paleo protein banana bread that I made several months back. It’s probably my favorite banana bread recipe as far as ones with protein in them go (and no gluten or dairy). I’m a sucker for a good banana […]
