    Grilled Tilapia, Roasted Red Potatoes & Asparagus

    This past weekend I was craving tilapia so I decided to make it my meal prep for the week. To be honest I’ve never really liked tilapia the way I enjoy other seafoods, but I was willing to give it another try. When I got to the seafood section for my grocery shopping (take a peak at this blog post if you want tips on how to make a grocery list for meal prepping) the frozen tilapia I usually buy was sold out so I opted for fresh. I tend to stick with frozen because it’s convenience and price, but this meal prep with fresh fish turned out so much better than…

    Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

    Recipe of the week is back! I’m not going to commit to posting a new recipe every single week, but I’m going to do my best to post a new recipe at least twice a month. As I promised in my first Meal Prep Sunday post of 2017, because I got this Spiralizer for Christmas I have many zoodle recipes coming. I already shared my Marinara Zoodle recipe in that same post and I’m still loving it, but I made this shrimp scampi recipe last weekend and it brought me back to my childhood. I used to love pasta and shrimp scampi when I was in my teens, but I haven’t…

    1.2.17 | First Meal Prep of 2017

    Happy New Year! I started the year off not feeling the best – I didn’t make it to the gym on the first day of the year because I was feeling under the weather. But I didn’t let that keep me down. I made it a point to get to the gym on January 2 with a strong shoulder day and cardio session, and also started a cut. To be honest, I wasn’t planning to start my cut until February or March, but after considering my long term goal I decided to start the year off right and get into my dieting phase. I’m planning to cut through at least February,…

    New Training Program

    One day I woke up and decided to change my training program – again. A while back, I shared a post all about Why I Lift, and I still stand by what I said in that post. That doesn’t mean I can’t continue to grow and improve – I want to always be improving at my fitness goals and in my life as a whole. As I’ve been thinking about new goals, I’ve decided to challenge myself to go outside of my comfort zone and start training more in a bodybuilding style rather than for strength. Strength lifting and powerlifting have always been what I’ve excelled and I love it, so I’ve stuck with it. Around…

    Favorite Go-To Meals | December 2016

    It’s hard to resist all the delicious treats around almost every corner you turn this time of year. I know my workplace gets indulgent treats nearly every day in the weeks leading up to Christmas, and there’s no way I’m alone in that. When I’m not eating all of the delicious treats around me and eating out for a special gathering, I’m focusing on eat clean, wholesome meals. Then I don’t feel as bad when I have a savory or sweet meal. This time of year also tends to be pretty busy with holiday preparations, parties, and the days are shorter making getting to the gym a little harder. Lately for meals at…
