Macro Friendly Mondays — WW 7 Layer Salad!

🥗 Got a new #MacroMicroBowl idea for ya! I grew up eating Weight Watchers 7 layer salad; it was a family favorite. I could l seriously smash half of a tray of that stuff at once, easy. Wanted to see if I could make it a bit more #macrofriendly for a meal-sized serving, and here’s…

Macro Friendly Mondays — Blue Cheese Burger on Protein Bread!

Blue cheese gives you all the flavor for some pretty sweet macros! Just a reminder that my first book, The Savior’s Heart: Lessons of Truth From The Gospel of Mark is now available for purchase here!

If y’all have never tried using cream cheese instead of regular cheese in your omelettes, it’s going to blow your mind! Loaded with flavor and very #MacroFriendly!

It’s that time of year when #PumpkinEverything is making its way around the ‘gram and the blogosphere. I’m here to throw a different holiday treat in the mix!

An entire 14oz bag of green beans is only 150 calories! This is great if you are a #VolumeEater like me! I have them almost nightly as a side with dinner. Roasted green beans are 💯! Method: Steam in the microwave per package (6 minutes for me), drain, then spread on a baking sheet lined…

No Boring Veggies! {How To Roast And Season Veggies}

Anybody ever had some poorly cooked and very sad broccoli that wasn’t worth eating? Yup. Me too. But it’s still one of my favorite veggies! Sometimes it’s not actually the food itself we don’t like. Sometimes it just isn’t seasoned properly and/or cooked in a way we prefer. Many people claim that they “don’t like…

#MacroFriendlyMonday — PB&J Protein Clouds!

This recipe couldn’t be any easier! You only need three ingredients for the protein clouds plus toppings of choice.

#MacroFriendlyMondays — 5 Ingredient Mediterranean Omelette! {Tips+video!}

This is one of my favorite #MinimalistMealPrep recipes for lunch or dinner. It’s also something I find is widely available on restaurants.

I will…
