    Easy Macro-Friendly Cauliflower Mash

    The holidays are upon us which brings a lot of delicious foods! For me, the holidays begin at Halloween with too much candy and then it goes into Thanksgiving – the holiday where all you do is eat. The majority of these foods you find yourself surrounded by at holiday parties and get-togethers, usually aren’t very macro-friendly or the healthiest. If you’re anything like me, then you prefer having some options that are slightly healthier than your traditional green bean casserole and sweet potatoes with marshmallows. That’s where this easy, macro-friendly mashed cauliflower recipe steps in! Now even I’ll admit that the holidays aren’t about eating healthy foods, but rather enjoying…

    Oven Baked Buffalo Chicken

    I am loving buffalo sauce anything lately. I’ve already shared my new-found love for buffalo sauce in this awesome Buffalo Turkey Burger recipe, but it doesn’t hurt to share again. It’s great for cooking with or adding to salads as dressing. Lately, it’s been my go-to for my weekly chicken meal prep, rather than plain, slow cooker shredded chicken.

In addition to buffalo sauce, I add sriracha to most of my stir fries and…

All of these drinks are macro-friendly and low…

    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…
