I was busy, but not busy in the kitchen this weekend. Does that make sense? I made lots of good eats but in a short amount of time! How is this even possible? Well, the recipes were SO SIMPLE so I have to share them. Here they are:
1 packet chocolate sugar free/fat free pudding
2 scoops vanilla (or chocolate) protein powder
2 cups almond milk
Mix all ingredients together well. I used a blender for a minute or two to remove the clumps. Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes and enoy!
Baked Acorn Squash
-Cut squash in half (through the stem) I microwaved it for about 4-5 minutes before cutting it open!
I sprinkled mine with cinnamon and stevia before and after baking 🙂
Bake at 400 degrees for 30-45 minutes (rind up). The caramelization on the ends tells you it is good to go!
Breakfast: add 2 tbsp Peanut butter and you are good to go!
I also got this recipe from my crossfit bud, Tessa. She has some of the greatest ideas (such as the paleo yogurt crunch) that I had last week.

Salmon Rub: (for 3 large pieces of salmon)

On Saturday night I had a major sweet tooth and almost stopped at every ice cream shop imaginable, but I held off the urge and I made this awesome mug brownie for dessert when I got home. I have a sweet tooth urge like every day of my life.
Chocolate Hazelnut Protein Brownie
- 1 tbsp Nikki’s Coconut Butter (chocolate hazelnut brownie flavor)
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 egg white
- 3 drops liquid stevia
- 1 tbsp Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients together well. Slowly add water at the end to make the batter into a smooth consistency. Microwave for 60 seconds and enjoy!
Leftover Salmon for my Salmon and Shrimp Salad for lunch Saturday
I used the some of the same seasoning for the shrimp (chili powder, paprika. salt)
Dressing: Lemon Juice and balsamic vinegar
On Saturday we had a family part at my aunt’s house and I was in charge of bringing dessert (heck yes!) so I made this awesome banana bread, and some healthified truffles that I will share with you later 🙂
Also On Saturday I saw the prettiest rainbow ever!
Oh and last but not least, Sir Jackson turned one!!
How was your weekend?
