A Berry Yummy Parfait

19 Apr

This reminds me of the parfaits at Chickfila which might be why I love it so much:) It’s delicious and has way less calories, fat & sugar than Chickfila’s version!

Ingredients:

4oz Plain Greek Yogurt
1 Tbsp Vanilla Whey Protein
20 Almonds
1/3 Cup Berries of choice (I chose Strawberries!)

Directions:

Measure out 4oz of yogurt in a bowl. Then add the protein powder and mix until it is blended together evenly. Next add your berries. If you choose strawberries, I like to cut them into smaller pieces so that I get a little bit in each bite:) Next, place almonds in a baggie and crush. I actually use a hammer (because it’s fun) However you can use what ever method you prefer. Be careful not to crush into a powder (although my husband did that and it still taste good) I just think it’s a little better with a crunch:) Also, If you prefer the Chickfila parfait with cookies instead of granola try using Cocoa Almonds! They are absolutely delicious and you will hardly tell a difference!!

Apple Pie Oatmeal

21 May

This awesome recipe will have you thinking you are cheating on your healthy diet:) its super yummy and simple! Ready in about 5 minutes (depending on how fast you move in the morning!)

Ingredients:
1/3 C Oats ( I use Red Mil Extra Thick Oats)
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 Packet Stevia/Truvia or other sweetener of choice
1/4 Medium Apple


Directions:

Using a cheese grater (the big holes) grate up 1/4 of an apple. Set aside. Pour oatmeal into a bigger bowl as to prevent the oatmeal from overflowing. Add Stevia, or other sweetener of choice, nutmeg & cinnamon. Add water to desire consistency. (I eyeball the amount of water I use but it is roughly 1/2 Cup). Stir together then toss in apple. Heat in microwave based on directions for your oatmeal. I cook 2 1/2 minutes on high. Enjoy!

Friday’s French Toast

4 May

My traditional breakfast is Egg whites, 1 yolk & oatmeal, but it’s Friday and I wanted to try something new! This meal has the exact same number of carbs & protein as my normal breakfast but 1 less gram of fat! It’s super yummy and a great way to mix it up:) I’m pretty sure the kids would love it to, if I had any:)

Ingredients:

  • 2 Slices P28 Bread
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • 1 Packet Splenda
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • 1 Serving Sugar Free Syrup (Optional)

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Go ahead and spray a cookie sheet with a non-stick spray (I made the mistake of using foil the first time and it stuck real bad!) Cut the bread into evenly sized slices then coat/soak in the egg whites. Place them on the cookie sheet and sprinkle the splenda and cinnamon on top. Bake for 7 minutes. Enjoy with 1 serving of Sugar-Free Syrup!

Low-Carb Chocolate Pancakes

28 Jan

I posted a picture of these chocolate pancakes on twitter the other day and I’ve had a lot of people ask for the recipe! Soooooo here it is! 🙂 These are great for a late night snack (because it’s LOW CARB) & also for a quick on-the-go snack. They are also perfect for sweet cravings!! *Sugar Free Syrup makes them even better.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Scoops of Chocolate Protein (I use Myofusion Milk Chocolate because it taste amazing!)
  • 2 Egg whites
  • 1 Whole Egg
  • 1/2 C Almond Milk
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • Butterbuds (optional)

Directions:

Mix powder, eggs, milk & cinnamon in a bowl. You may have to adjust the amount of almond milk based on the texture of the mixture. You want it to be similar to pancake mix with no clumps. Then cook like a pancake. When you take the pancake off the pan sprinkle it with the butterbuds (or even add extra cinnamon) It will melt giving it a really good flavor! I use about 3 tablespoons to make each pancake which makes.
