I tweaked a recipe from this source, and I really loved the outcome!! Carrot cake ingredients: 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour 2/3 cup (2 level scoops) protein powder… I used IsaLean […] Read more…

FOOD FREEDOM: quitting macros

I’ve addressed this a bit, but I haven’t updated my stance in a little while! I’ve been focusing on other things, but health and fitness is always a priority! I have lots of previous posts about flexible dieting and macros. I LOVED having flexibility and choosing what I ate while I was in competition prep […] Read more…

Chicken-Meal-Prep

To meal prep or “wing it”

In different seasons of my “fit life”, I find some methods to be effective, and others make me crazy 😉 I see a lot of posts on pinterest and social media showing perfectly lined up tupperwares with a week’s worth of healthy food. I’ve done this too and posted about it lots. I just want to […] Read more…

Soup-1

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…

(Plus- I tend to distrust male health “pros” with less muscle than myself. But whatev). So the whole objective […] Read more…

Starting out your macros

I want to preface this post by saying that this approach may not be THE solution for everyone. But I do believe it can work for MOST!  I’ve written about “IIFYM” or “flexible dieting” in 3 other posts! You can check them out here, here, and here. In these posts, I explain what macros are, what flexible dieting is, and […] Read more…

Best protein bars roundup!

I thought this would be fun to put together my list of favorite protein bars and the benefits of each. A real meal, made of real whole foods is always ideal but when we need a snack on the go, or can’t plan ahead very well, these are better than nothing- or choosing something crappy […] Read more…

sweet pork nachos

Who doesn’t love nachos?! This was a delicious and easy alternative to our typical comfort food! Regular nachos= carbs on carbs on fat on fake cheese. Not filling, and 0% percent nutritious. My version is obviously a lot more fiber, and less cheese- but filling and so tasty! It’s a combination of a few different ideas I’ve seen, […] Read more…
