Pumpkin Protein Bread

I admit, my pumpkin protein waffles failed…but the pumpkin protein bread came out perfect!! Join me in celebrating Fall and all things pumpkin. Here’s how to make this deliciousness. 

Strawberry Passion Smoothie

This is one of my favorite things to whip up after a workout or just on a hot day. I know we’re nearing fall, but it’s not quite time for PSL fever! Enjoy the last few days of summer with two versions of this treat!

Adventures with the Magic Bullet continue. I used it to make out flour out of my oatmeal, then used the flour to make these protein+oat muffins. Yes you could buy oat flour, but it’s pricey. I also used the Magic Bullet to make the third ingredient, puréed apple. Yes, you can buy cheap apple, Read More

Protein Birthday Cupcakes

March 1 is my birthday, which means you all get an un-birthday present: My new recipe for birthday cupcakes that won’t wreck your eating plan or leave you with a sugar high and subsequent crash. Enjoy!


If you love ginger, you will love this ginger carrot salad. It’s Whole Foods inspired, but I made a few tweaks to appeal to my personal palate, including nixing the chives. With just a few ingredients and a few minutes, you’ll have an awesome sandwich side dish for your weekday lunches.
