Protein Gelatin by Me!

The original version is peach, but I have since made many variations. My current favorite is 2 bags of peaches, 1 bag of strawberries, and 1 bag of pineapple. I eat this for my post workout meal every single weekday, as it is portable and can be consumed in the car on my way to work. I can also make enough for 2 weeks at a time and freeze the second week. It thaws wonderfully. I love mixing in 1/2 a scoop of Naturade vanilla protein powder and a couple TBSP of PB2. It is like PB&J!!

My favorite way to prep these for the week is to measure out all the dry ingredients in advance into Tupperware, then add the wet the night before. That way you can do the majority of the prep work up front, but they are still fresh!

This recipe is great on its own and crumbled over a salad (see below). It is so versatile. Swap out the pulled chicken for ground beef, turkey, or chicken. You can also swap out the veggies to use up what you might have on hand. A lot of times I used a bag of Green Giant riced veggies or butternut noodles. It is also a great way to use up leftover spinach.

You basically just mix up the sauce (which is only 6 ingredients!) and then cook the chicken (see the video below 😍) on the stove with the sauce. A one pan meal! It is so easy! I loved it so much that I brainstormed other ways to use the basic sauce recipe. You can add it to any kind of roast in the crockpot (beef pictured below) and cook it until it falls apart. Amazing!

Another favorite from Dashing Dish! I usually add apple and Gouda chicken sausage instead of the chicken breast for my protein with it. You can also add more veggies like spinach, zucchini, squash, etc. for more volume and micronutrients.




I hope these give you some inspiration and new recipes to try! They are amazing!
