If you haven’t made @makeyourmark_fit Carrot Cake Bars yet, do it! (Recipe here). I made them twice in one week! I also brainstormed a way to go next-level with the leftovers… Cake pops!!

Kaci’s Friday Find — Now Foods Stevia drops!

Technically this is a #FridayFind from Dashing Dish. Katie sent this flavor of Now Foods Stevia drops to me for Christmas and I am obsessed with using it in my coffee! I’m going to be ordering other flavors. I normally am not a fan of stevia, but this has no weird aftertaste like the powdered…

Five Tips For Making Healthy Choices When Dining Out {FTT25}

One of the most common questions I get from clients is how to make good nutritional decisions when dining at a restaurant.

#MacroFriendlyMonday20 — Strawberry Banana Cream Yogurt Bowl!

Strawberry Banana Cream Yogurt Bowl! 🍓🍌🍨🥜 This yogurt bowl variation is a melding of two childhood (and adulthood 😂) favorites — peanut butter and jelly and peanut butter and banana.

I wanted to see if I could create a #highprotein version and…

Five Tips For Using Protein Powder In Recipes {FTT22}

If you haven’t used protein powder much, there’s a lot you need to know in order to get good outcomes. I learned most of my protein cookery from Anna…

#MacroFriendlyMonday18 — #MuscleMash!

  #MuscleMash! This one is definitely #StrangeButGood! All credit to @tballard50 for inspiring the newest iteration of the #MacroMicroBowl. I have seen him prepping these meals for sometime now and finally hopped on the bandwagon. I’m sorry it took me so long! There is no real “recipe” to follow with these. It’s more of just…

#MacroFriendlyMonday16 — Pumpkin Banana Maple French Toast Protein Bites!

Pumpkin Banana Maple French Toast Protein Bites! 🍌🍁🎃🍞 I saw someone post a couple weeks ago in their Instagram stories about the blueberry scone version of The Ambrosia Collective protein powder.

View this post on Instagram ▶️ See visual examples and recipes for my favorites under #MacroMicroBowl (aka hot/cold salad).
