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.

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…

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…
