#MacroFriendlyMondays — Smoked Salmon Rice Cakes!

This week’s post for a #MacroFriendlyMondays isn’t so much a recipe as it is a quick and easy meal or snack idea (#MinimalistMealPrep). This has been my go-to breakfast when I’m feeling snacky, rather than wanting a full meal. You can customize to meet your macro needs by splitting either 1 or 2 ounces of…

#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…

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…

The Not-So-Classic Cobb

Lunches a few weeks back turned out amazing! I will be making this #MacroMicroBowl again! I enjoyed it so much, I think it will go in as part of my regular rotation. I’m calling it The Not-So-Classic Cobb 🥗 What I really love is that it only took about an hour to prep everything for…

#MacroFriendlyMonday — Cookies & Cream Protein Bowl

I’m a die hard cookies and cream fan. Experimenting with a #MacroFriendly version of the Edwards Oreo pies and it’s a keeper! This is packed with protein and healthy enough for breakfast! You could also triple it and make a pie by using a premade Oreo crust. 🥣 Ingredients:✅ 12 oz Siggis dairy plain Skyr…

#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!! I mean, who doesn’t love bite-size desserts?! I made a few tweaks to the base bar recipe (see ingredients below). Again, check…

Christmas Crack Slaw!

I actually made this recipe last year for Christmas and have been waiting all year to share it! The lovely Christmas colors make it the perfect side dish at your Holiday meal, but it would make a great side dish in the summer months too, especially for a BBQ. It is so refreshing and bursting…

#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…
