orange poppyseed protein waffles

orange poppyseed protein waffles

Greet your morning with the bright flavour or oranges and nearly 20g of protein! Tasty on their own or with a smear of berry jam. Important questions to ask someone you’re dating to figure out if they’re “the one”: do you want kids in the future or not? are you a home body or do you like to travel? are you a spender or a saver? do you prefer waffles or pancakes? Marriage advice from a food blogger: if you’re going to be spending a lot of lazy Saturday mornings together you don’t want every weekend to begin with the “waffle or … Read More

freezer breakfast burritos (vegetarian)

black bean salsa egg burritos

Keep these breakfast burritos in the freezer for a quick, filling, and nutritious breakfast! 20g of protein in each burrito! When a baby is born everyone thinks of doting on the mother and the baby.. but what about the dad?  It’s the mom who’s checked in at the hospital so she gets the comfy bed and meal service. The dad gets a little fold out chair to sleep on (if he’s lucky).  The baby is closely monitored to make sure he or she is eating well. But who’s making sure the dad gets something to eat?  The day before my … Read More

high protein pancakes: DIY power cakes mix

high protein pancakes DIY power cakes

Keep this high protein pancakes mix on hand and you’ll only be a couple steps away from a filling nourishing breakfast! I might be breaking ALL the recipe creation rules with this one. There’s the “list all ingredients in order of use” rule…. I ALWAYS follow that one. It’s a big pet peeve of mine when I’m making someone else’s recipe and I’m scrambling to find how much to add of the ingredient that comes next. Making a recipe isn’t some kind of treasure hunt. Just give it to me straight! Then there’s the “list ingredients added at the same time in descending order” … Read More

world’s best scrambled eggs

world's BEST scrambled eggs

I know what you’re thinking: Aren’t scrambled eggs just scrambled eggs? How can you make them better or worse than what they are.  I know the second thing you’re thinking too: Do I really need a recipe? Again, aren’t scrambled eggs simply that: eggs that are scrambled? Yup, I used to think those things too. I would have laughed at someone if they had tried to post a recipe for scrambled eggs, let alone make the audacious claim that they were the best in the world.  Until a little thing called serendipity came my way. I like to add a touch … Read More

high protein smoothies to promote satiety

Tropical Green Smoothie

high protein smoothies Your smoothie is only as good as the ingredients you put in it. If you load it up with sweetened yogurt, juice, and honey you’ll just get hopped up on sugar. Sugar is not very filling. You’ll get a blood sugar spike that will soon send you crashing down in hunger again.  One of the key components of a good smoothie is protein. Protein is hands down the top nutrient for keeping you feeling full for longer. In science-talk that’s called satiety. You don’t want to eat a meal only to feel hungry again an hour later. You … Read More

The World’s Best Green Smoothie

world's best Green Smoothie

A creamy blend of pear, almond butter, kale, and vanilla. It’s gluten-free and can be altered to be vegan as well! Truly the world’s best tasting smoothie! Is this the wrong time of year to post a smoothie recipe? It’s not summer, so people aren’t hankering for a cold drink. It’s not January, so people aren’t looking for weight loss recipes. I might be out of my mind to post this recipe right now, but I just love this smoothie so much I need to talk about it! I first discovered this smoothie ingredient combo when I saw a post … Read More

morning glory oats

What do you get when you mash together carrot cake, apple spice cake, and a pina colada? Morning glory oats!  Initially that may all sound a bit strange and as though there’s too much going on but it magically all comes together as one glorious concoction.  Last week a friend asked me what some of my “go-to” dinner recipes are. I just stared at her with a lot of “umms” and “ahhs” and “well…..s”  coming out of my mouth. I couldn’t think of anything. Not even one recipe! I couldn’t think of anything that I make over and over again. I figured … Read More
