I have 3 new recipes for you today!!
Ill start with breakfast. Yesterday was a long day, but I started the morning off right!
Many of you have asked me if it is possible to make the Blueberry Muffin Bake in the microwave so I decided I would try it!
Well it was a success!
Microwaveable Blueberry Muffin Bake
I used all the same ingredients:
1/4 cup oats
1 tbsp oat bran
2 tbsp (or 1/2 scoop) vanilla protein powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp almond flour
Pinch of salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tbsp sugar free maple syrup (or regular)
Approx. 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup blueberries (or more if you want!)
Mix all ingredients together into a bowl.
Microwave for 2-3 minutes!
I also added a little bit of almond butter that didn’t make the picture!
After breakfast I headed to crossfit. We did a group workout and it was really fun!
We only made it to 4o abmat situps! It was a great workout though.
Lunch got eaten so quick that I didn’t get a picture. I had a chicken bowl from Chipotle (The best) with a little bit of brown rice, chicken, cheese and lettuce. Guacamole on the side 🙂
Afternoon snack: Quest Protein Bar. The peanut butter supreme is by favorite of them all so far! I cant wait to try all the other flavors!
While I made dinner I snacked on some veggie chips.
They are so tasty!
I have another great recipe for you guys! If you love pizza like I do but hate all the extra carbs you will love this one!
Personal Pan Pita Pizza’s
Whole wheat pita (20g carbs per serving)
Place pita’s on a baking sheet and into the oven at 35o degrees for 5 minutes to get crispy.
Add about 2 tbsp pizza sauce to eat pita.
Add cheese and toppings.
Bake for another 8 minutes.
Bake the last few minutes under the broiler to get the top nice and crispy!
Dark Chocolate Protein Blondie For One
1 tbsp chunky almond butter
4 tbsp liquid egg whites
(I actually used one egg white and then added about 1 tsbp of liquid egg whites, so either the real thing or liquid egg white in a carton should work)
1 tsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp pumpkin
1/2 scoop (2 tbsp) vanilla protein powder
splash unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 stevia packet – Good with or without!
Mix all ingredients together until smooth.
Spray a ramekin with non stick cooking spray and pour in the batter. Microwave for one minute!
Top with 1 tbsp dark chocolate chips!
Have a great weekend!
We are going to Nada for dinner and bowling tonight!
Anyone have any special weekend plans?
Good Morning Monday. I am off today, and maybe you are too if you are still getting show days!
Are you an A, B, Or C? Today I am a C – which back in school would be a bad thing, but today a C is totally acceptable!
Yesterday I went to crossfit and we did a pretty fun workout, minus the part of my smashing my finger while doing tire flips….It still hurts!
I did 95# back squats for 5 sets of 5 (not our max)
I could almost do dips without the band, but I used the tiny band and worked myself up to adding 5 lbs. My sister and I worked our triceps on Saturday not knowing we were going to do dips so my arms were already a little bit sore! O well.
Tire Flips: 4 sets- I think I smashed my finger on the second set, awesome!
Side Bangers- We basically just beat the crap out of the tire with a sledge-hammer looking thing 🙂
So my score was 7+16= 23
After crossfit I braved going to Kroger on a Sunday afternoon, bad idea…I was in a hurry and I might have run over a few people!
I got WAY MORE than what was on my grocery list, which is what I always do! Does this happen to anyone else??
I got some important items to make a few things for the week including:
This time I only used 1 cup of oats instead of 2
4 tbsp flaxseed meal instead of 2 tbsp
Added in: 1 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1/2 cup applesauce (no sugar added), chopped almonds (prob about 1/4 cup)
Subtracted: Honey (I was out)
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl
Roll into balls…This batch made 12
I also made another protein snack….
- 1 cup oat flour
- 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp allspice
- 1/8 tsp nutmeg
- 4 egg whites
- 3/4 cup Splenda, Truvia, or Ideal
- 8 oz baby food carrots
- 4 oz water
I didn’t use the sweetener that she used. I used 1 tbs of Stevia Blend, which has 12 grams of sugar alcohol, which isn’t bad for the whole batch!
I also only used about 1-2 oz. of water.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix flour, whey protein, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
- Mix egg whites, Sweetener, baby food carrots and water (optional) in a bowl.
- Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
- Spray glass pyrex dish with non-stick butter spray.
- Pour ingredients into dish.
- Bake 20 minutes.
- Makes 16 squares
So for dinner I had leftover corn casserole, a veggie salad, and one of these lovely carrot cake protein squares!
For dessert I ended my night with a scoop of almond butter and a protein power ball to wash it down!
Have a good week everyone!
