#MacroFriendlyMondays — Green Bean Fries—Two ways!

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…

#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. The clouds are essentially a meringue, but not cooked until completely dry. 🥣 Ingredients:1️⃣ 6 egg whites (best if you use real eggs, as carton kind don’t stay as puffy)2️⃣ 1 tsp cream of tartar3️⃣ Sweetener…

#MacroFriendlyMonday — Rock N Roll Sushi {Restaurant Review}

  In case you are interested, I reviewed Stix, which is another local sushi / hibachi restaurant. That post can be found here. Reader Questions:1/ Have you tried any new restaurants during quarantine that I should know about?2/ Would you try the squid salad? P.S. If you are interested in getting a custom set of…

#MacroFriendlyMonday — Spirilized Greek Salad!

  This is such an easy dish to throw together for a side or main if you add a protein like grilled chicken or salmon! Spirilized Greek Salad: 🥣Ingredients: 1.5 lbs spirilized English cucumber (I have this spirilizer) 72g Kalamata olives, diced 8 oz grape tomatoes, diced 1 + 3/4 cups (15oz can) chickpeas (pro…

#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! So unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have more than likely seen @Laurenfitfoodie and @howwemacro recipes for @chickfila honey roasted barbecue sauce floating around the Macro tracking community (see here and here). I wanted to see if I could create a #highprotein version and…

#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…

#MacroFriendlyMonday14 — Air “Fried” Mushrooms!

Any fried mushroom fans out there? I absolutely love fried mushrooms growing up, but they are definitely not macro friendly. That is, until now! After seeing someone post about using the air fryer to cook mushrooms, I tested out a healthy version in my air fryer, and I have been having them almost every night…

#MacroFriendlyMonday12 — S’mores Jell-O Yogurt Pudding Bowl!

If you follow me on Instagram, it’s no secret that I have been enjoying a nightly #JellOYogurtBowl (#YJPBowl). My personal preference for them is to also add some sugar-free Jell-O pudding. I use either almond milk or cashew milk rather than regular milk which shaves off some calories and carbs. You could really use any…
