    My Flexible Dieting Aldi Grocery List (and a few recipes)

    At the beginning of 2018, I decided to sit down and take a look at my finances. Both a good and bad decision. I saw how much money I was spending on random grocery store trips throughout the month. I decided to end that by building a meal plan, shopping at Costco for bulk items, and switching back to shopping at Aldi. After a few shopping trips since the beginning of the year, I’ve finally narrowed in on my Aldi grocery list for two. I shopped exclusively at Aldi a few years back when I was living on my own and it was just down the road. Nowadays I have to…

    Buffalo Turkey Burger Meal Prep

    It’s been a while since I’ve done a proper meal prep and I was wanting to spice things up. I’ve recently discovered buffalo sauce which is mighty tasty and also zero calories – win win. One my hacks to cooking awesome meal prep recipes is to include flavor, and these buffalo turkey burgers are just that. Spicy, full of flavor, while keeping my meal lean and high in protein. During November and December, I pretty much lived off of slow cooker chicken and rice because of how packed my schedule was. Now that I’m in a dieting phase, I want to switch up my recipes and have a variety to choose…

    Pumpkin Protein Pancakes

    The best season of the year is upon us – autumn! Prepare yourself for all things pumpkin pie and spice, caramel, cinnamon, and sweet apple. I love fall and everything that comes with it (always have!) including all things pumpkin. One of my favorite things to do as the weather gets cooler is opening the windows to let in a cool breeze, light at Bath and Body Works fall scented candle and drink my pumpkin spice coffee. This year I’ll be adding these warm and tasty pumpkin protein pancakes into that weekend morning routines. I’ve been doing my best to contain myself as autumn approaches and to enjoy the last…

    Parmesan Turkey Meatballs

    I’ve been itching to try new recipes lately for my meal preps. For the past months I’ve been sticking to the same meal preps and routine, and quite frankly it’s getting boring. After adding chicken back into my diet about a year ago, I’ve also started adding turkey for more variety and recipe options. Ground chicken is great and I’ll continue to use it, but ground turkey lends itself better to some recipes than its counterpart. One of the those recipes are these Parmesan turkey meatballs. I can also see myself loving ground turkey in chili recipes during the fall months. This recipe is simple, easy, and versatile. You can…

    Summer Fiesta Dip

    Most of the recipes that I share are macro-friendly and meal prep friendly – this one is a little different. My dad has been making this dip since I was in high school and my family requests that he makes for all our gatherings and holiday. This summer, I finally introduced this recipe to my friends and everyone loves it. I’m naming this dip the summer fiesta dip because it pairs perfectly with barbecues and pool side, however it’s amazing year round. This recipe came about during a road trip my dad took to Kansas City many, many years ago. He was tailgating at a baseball game when he tried…
