#MacroFriendlyMonday21 — Carrot Cake Protein Pops! 🥕🍰

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!!

Emotional Eating & Self-Care

Let’s chat about emotional eating and self-care! I think we recognize the link between turning to food for comfort, but may not really fully understand why that is, and how to work through it and overcome it. We may also not understand how self-care practices are a useful tool to combat eating for reasons other…

Renewing The Mind

Lasting transformation takes time. It is not achieved via a quick fix approach or through a temporary diet and exercise program. To truly sustain a lifestyle that gets the results you want while also honoring God requires a renewal of the mind. A transformation on the inside is the only thing that will ultimately sustain…

Habit Changes

Fresh off a zoom call with a client and dove right into this #MacroMicroBowl of goodness! Recipe found here! This was prepped and ready to go so it required zero decision making and zero mental effort. Those calls and my clients give me LIFE! The last thing I want to do is to be caught…

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. The truth is that it is now easier than ever to stay on track without feeling deprived. Restaurants have menus and nutrition online and in house. It’s more common place to cater to…

#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 am partial to strawberry jam on my PB&J as opposed to grape, but I certainly wouldn’t turn my nose up at either! It’s no…

#MacroFriendlyMonday19 — High Protein Honey Mustard Sauce!

I teased about this recipe in last week’s post!

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

Five Tips For Using Protein Powder In Recipes {FTT22}

I absolutely love using protein powder in recipes! Shakes, bars, bites, brownies, muffins, fluff, proats, cookies, pancakes, waffles, crepes, bread, pudding, mug cakes, cheesecake, and more!

#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…
