Meatless Meals!

Greetings squad!! Today’s post is all about getting at least one meatless meal in a week. And when I say a “meal” I mean dinner. Of course you can even dedicate a whole day to being meatless. The idea behind going meatless is to give your digestive system a little break, add more variety and nutrients to your diet and it’s a fantastic way to introduce new veggies into your meal planning! 

Most of you have probably heard of “meatless Mondays”. I am trying to incorporate that into my family meal planning, and this is what I came up with yesterday!  Read More

Quick and Nutritious Dinner!

Greetings squad!!

It’s been a while since I’ve done a nutrition post and last night we had the perfect quick and nutritious dinner! Right now my girls are knee deep into soccer practice and games. We have lots of late nights between that and my teaching schedule. There isn’t a lot of time or desire at the end of the day to make a healthy meal. Well Trader Joe’s to the rescue once again!

Friday Favorites!

Greetings Squad! I have been home from the sun and warmth of Mexico for a week now and I am missing it so much! This winter feels remarkably colder than I remember experiencing during most winters. We could all use a little sunshine I suspect so today I’d like to share one of my favorite takeaways from Mexico, Tajin! Read More

Protein Pancakes

Greetings and Happy New Year squad!!

I hope you are all feeling motivated and excited to attack 2016! I know I am! Today we’re talking Protein Pancakes which is part of my New Year’s Meal Plan. These pancakes are fabulous. Packed with protein, fiber and clean, simple ingredients.

  • 1/2 to 1 full cup of oatmeal, 1-2 eggs, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, sprinkle of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla extract if you’d like. Mix well. If you need more moisture add a little water or nut milk of choice.
  • Cook in skillet like a pancake. Be sure to really spray your pan well. These are a bit stickier than regular pancakes.
  • Top with a nut butter of choice or coconut oil. Yummy!

A couple tips, you might have to play around with the measurements of your ingredients. Today I made 6 good sized pancakes that I packed in foil and placed in the fridge. That way they are ready to go for a couple of days. To make 6 pancakes I did a full cup of oatmeal and 2 eggs. I’m not afraid of egg yolks so I use the whole thing! You can of course do 2 egg whites if you’re not into yolk. I topped my pancake with Trader Joe’s Crunchy salted peanut butter with flax and chia seeds. I love this stuff! It just melts beautifully on a warm pancake.

Avocado Toast Recipe

Avocado Toast

It’s an avocado toast kind of day–and boy was this delicious!! Which makes me wonder, “why don’t I have this meal more often?”

I prepared this beauty on sourdough bread, which is an excellent choice! Sourdough bread is lower on the glycemic index because of its bacteria–Lactobacillus, which means easier to digest. Healthy gut=healthy body!

And we all know the benefits of eating avocados! Helps stabilize blood sugar, full of good fats that help pull nutrients from other foods, help lower bad cholesterol and they make you feel more full–to name a few.

Go make yourself a slice of this heaven today!!
