Craving Crusher Cocoa-Nut Chia Seed Pudding

  Have you heard of chia seed pudding? Yes, the seeds like the chia pet! Turns out that they are good for you and when mixed with liquid, will “gel” and thicken! The mix can also be used as an egg substitute in recipes for those who are egg-free!   This is a great after…

A Few of My Favorite Things #8 {Protein Bars}

First, let me address the elephant in the room… I am intentionally leaving out Quest Bars because I feel like everyone already knows about them. Ok! That being said, I am asked quite often about what types of protein bars I consume and which I would recommend. In an effort to make it easier for…

No-Bake Customizable Protein Breakfast Bars

  I can’t believe how long I’ve been sitting on this recipe without posting it! I didn’t realize I hadn’t shared it yet! Oops! I used to make these bars all the time in batches for my husband. I forgot about them until just recently. He likes these stored in the freezer and will pull…

Recipes I Pinned This Week

Popping in this week with some intriguing things I plan to try! All healthy of course! 😉   Cauliflower Fauxmeal A sneaky way to add veggies that also happens to be Paleo and gluten free, if you need that sort of recipe. I plan to leave out the brown sugar and add some protein powder…

Single-Serving Healthy Peanut Butter Cup Puppy Chow

 A classic treat made healthy, high protein, and single serving for portion control!   Classic Muddy Buddy recipes use melted chocolate, butter, powdered sugar, peanut butter, and cereal. While they are insanely delicious, when I looked up recipes, an average 1/2 cup serving size clocked in at around 220-250 calories, 10+ g of fat, 40+…

A Few of My Favorite Things #4 {Savory Snacks}

When the snack monster hits, have no fear! Healthier options are available!!       DNX Bars: A different approach to the protein bar with these whole food-based bars. Kind of like jerky, but also not in that they aren’t super salty. They can be pricy, but if you sign up for their emails, they…

Famous Fruit Dip {high protein, low calorie}

Ok, so maybe this should be called ‘Almost’ Famous Fruit Dip. In either case, every time I have brought it to a get together, I have been asked for the recipe and/or been asked to bring it from then on out to any future get-togethers involving food! It is so simple, I hate to call…

Clutch Zucchini Banana Bread {High Protein}

  There is nothing quite like fresh baked banana bread. Except maybe fresh baked zucchini bread. This recipe combines both—but it is healthy! The avocado serves as a stand in for the butter/oil that most traditional quick breads call for. The baking mix is high protein. It is also sweetened with stevia, and along with…

A Few of My Favorite Things #1

Just stopping in to share some of my favorite products as of late. I’ll try to start doing this more often!! 😉 No affiliate links, just sharing the love! Flavored Egg Whites There are several companies that make flavored egg whites, but the one I’ve tried and love is MuscleEgg. They have flavors like key…

An Egg-cellent #WIAW 4 + Super Simple Meal Prep

    It’s been a while since I’ve done a #WIAW post! Since I actually had the forethought to take photos of a full day’s eats, I decided I should join the party again after my hiatus. This #WIAW is also a testament to the fact that a meal prep for the week does not have…

Protein Cherry Cordials {Recipe} {ToL #7}

Somehow I have neglected to share this recipe on the blog…my bad! I suppose I am a little late for Valentine’s Day, but perhaps this would make an Easter Treat for someone special? Note: someone special totally includes you. I won’t judge if you want to keep them all for yourself. It is a single…
