PUMPKIN APPLE SPICE CAKE

PUMPKIN APPLE SPICE CAKE Is this too premature? I mean, it’s barely September 1st…. BUT I think pumpkin anything year-round is perfectly acceptable! This is one of my favorite healthy desserts, created by my former bodybuilding coach, Robyn. It’s a pretty clean, guilt-free treat but still quite decadent! Let me know if you try it […] Read more…

REESES EGGS!!!

I think we can all agree on one thing- Reeses eggs are the shiz. Of course, I had to reinvent them as a healthy version-(inspired by local friend Trish Allen). Yep they still have lots of calories, and I won’t judge if you eat the whole batch. They do have slightly better macros, more nutrients, […] Read more…

Creamy roasted garlic butternut soup

Tis the season for butternut squash! I love it in certain things- and this homemade soup that I tweaked from a sauce recipe, is my favorite thing lately! First of all, know that the recipe is adapted from this AMAZING autumn lasagna.  I make it every fall, and it’s worth the calories! Actually, I don’t think of […] Read more…

Egg white frittata

A friend recently asked me for this recipe, and I can’t believe I haven’t posted it yet! It’s in the normal rotation around here, because there’s SO many ways to tweak it for a different flavor and the nutrition is insane! It’s good warm or cold, for breakfast or dinner. Top with salsa, or whatever […] Read more…

lasagna soup

This soup recipe has been in the dinner rotation for years now, and we love it! It’s super simple,(WAY easier than making lasagna), it’s healthy, and it’s a go-to if I’m planning to take dinner to someone. It’s a lightened up version by Bobby Deen, from Paula Deen’s original.  2 teaspoons olive oil 1 lb […] Read more…

Korean beef

This recipe was adapted from a Korean beef egg roll recipe I found on pinterest (I don’t do a lot of deep frying for meals, sorry). I don’t know authentic this actually is… I’ve only had Korean a few times and I’ve always loved it! Sweet and spicy beef though- what’s not to like?! This recipe […] Read more…

high protein bread

I’d like to preface this by saying there’s nothing wrong with bread or carbs =) Sometimes though, to hit your protein goals for the day, you want something other than meat. For me personally, I’m on low carbs getting ready for a show, and I do miss things like bread, and can rarely fit that […] Read more…
