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 […]

No-Bake Nutty Chocolate Protein Bars

No-Bake Nutty Chocolate Protein Bars

These bars were random and inspired by my need for chocolate and mixed nuts. Always. I like having protein and fat-dense snacks on hand to fuel a workout or as a morning snack before eating a large breakfast. Then I carb-load during my workout with […]

Spicy Sriracha Mustard Tuna Salad

Spicy Sriracha Mustard Tuna Salad

I’ve made a couple tuna salads in the past. Most of the time they are completely random because I make it when I have no food left in the house but my pantry is well-stocked with cans of tuna for back-up protein. I throw whatever […]

Turkey Chorizo Breakfast Hash

I love Mexican food. Even for breakfast. Huevos Rancheros was one of the first things I really got into when I began eating eggs and loving breakfast food. No more huevos rancheros these days though because beans. Instead I’ll do fajita style scrambles or egg-muffins. […]

Lemon Berry Protein Oatmeal

Lemon Berry Protein Oatmeal

Protein Oatmeal or “Proatmeal” as I like to call it used to be a staple in my diet. I decided to make this lemon berry version one day last a couple weeks ago to attempt to add grains back in my diet (the gluten-free ones […]

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad Bowls

Thai Peanut Chicken Salad Bowls

This is probably one of my favorite meals. I might say that a lot but this is definitely up there on the repeat meal list. And I don’t repeat too many meals – I get bored and like to try new things each week. This […]
