I have lots of good new eats and recipes to share with you guys today! I’ve been experimenting with different protein mug muffins and fun desserts.
Check them out:
Pesto Chicken Burger
1 can chunk chicken – 1 tbsp basil pesto – 1/4 tsp garlic powder – salt and pepper – 1 tbsp coconut flour – 1 egg white
Mix, mix mix, and form into a patty. Heat Oil in a pan on medium heat. Place burger in the pan on the stove top and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until a crispy crust forms!
Blueberry Mug Muffin
1 scoop vanilla protein powder – small handful of blueberries – liquid stevia (may omit) – water ( I never measure the water, I just add it until a smooth consistency forms) My guess it is about 3 tbsp. Fold in blueberries last! Microwave for 90 seconds. Top with crushed walnuts, or any other kind of nut that you prefer.
Healthy Broccoli Salad
1 bag fresh broccoli – 2-3 cups of grapes, cut in half – Slivered walnuts (prob 1/4 cup) – 1/4 cup dried cranberries – 1/4 cup sunflower seeds – 5 slices turkey bacon (cooked, cooled, and crumbled)
Dressing: 1 container (5.3 oz) plain greek yogurt – 3 packets stevia – 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar.
Mix dressing and pour over salad. Mix well.
Cut peaches in half – Grill on low heat for about 5 minutes on each side.
Sprinkles with cinnamon and honey.
Top with walnuts and whipped cream
I was inspired by this Recipe.
Brown 1 lb Laura’s lean ground beef in a pan with red onion and garlic. (1/4 red onion, 1 tbsp minced garlic)
Pour off grease, add in seasonings: oregano, thyme, salt, pepper, 1/2 cup pizza sauce, tops of bell peppers (chopped)
Scoop meat mixture into bell peppers and bake for 30 minutes at 400 degrees. Top with mozzarella cheese and bake 3-5 more minutes until cheese is melted!
