Healthy Chocolate Breakfast Soufflé {Secret Ingredient Recipe}

This simple breakfast soufflé is packed with protein, fiber, chocolate, and squash…? That’s right! Certainly by now we have all heard of and likely tried a healthier baked recipe using applesauce, zucchini, or pumpkin. So try not to get too weirded-out by the spaghetti squash in this recipe. It has such a neutral flavor. No…

Protein Cream of Wheat

  This recipe actually works really well if you want to make it the night before. You can reheat it, or you can just eat it cold (which is actually how I like to eat it, because I’m down with the #strangebutgood). It’s so simple, but #satisfactionfactor10. Protein Cream of Wheat What you need: 1 packet of the…

My Favorite Protein Powders {Plus Recipe Ideas}

  Of course, most of us would do best to eat whole food sources of protein instead of powders, but there are certainly good reasons to use supplements. That being said, I thought I’d share my favorite protein powders and how I use them. Please note, some links are affiliate links. Those that are affiliate…

Cottage Cheese Waldorf

So I’ve been MIA. We recently bought a house and are still in the move-in phase. Combine that with an hour commute each way to work, trying to maintain consistency with my workouts (before going to work), keeping on track with meal prep, and attempting some form of social life doesn’t leave a lot of time for blogging. I will do what…

Double Chocolate Chunk Protein Brownies!

Once upon a time, there was a recipe. I decided to play around with it (go figure). It’s not that it wasn’t good; I was just inspired to take it in a different direction. Fast forward a bit. One idea led to another…and to multiple experiments. #Recipe rabbit trail. This is one of those recipe…

WIAW #2 + recipe

Snow cone!   So…no… that’s actually NOT part of my WIAW. Yes. That was a joke. Yes. I am a nerd. I live in Alabama…and we have snow. Which I am not so much used to. I am also not used to being confined indoors for this long except by choice. But, I get 3 PAID…

PB&J Sweet Potatoes (#StrangeButGood)

I am convinced that peanut butter and sweet potatoes were meant for each other! My hubby on the other hand… not so much. When I announced this, he gave me a look that I often get from others in reference to the foods I eat (#strangebutgood). Even if you don’t agree with me on the…

Easy PB2 Cheesecakes (High Protein + Low Calorie)

Holiday treats can be difficult to resist. Don’t get me wrong, I am an advocate of an occasional planned indulgence. The holidays are a time when favorite family recipes make it worth the splurge or two. But between family, work, and friends, the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s meals add up. You can easily get…

{Bonus Recipe} Microwave Protein Scones!

I am super excited to share this recipe!! I have played with this recipe for some time now. It all started when I saw this post. I was inspired to make something similar, so I promptly defrosted some of my simple sweet potatoes, and went from there. For the first round, I stuck close to the…
