Good Morning!

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!

Enjoy!

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!

Group WOD Fri 2

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!

Dark Chocolate Protein Blondie For One

Ingredients:

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!

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!

WORKOUT

sun wod

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.

WOD:

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:

protein snacks

My Protein Power Balls

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

I also made another protein snack….

Jamie Eason’s Carrot Cake Protein Bars

I also only used about 1-2 oz. of water.

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix flour, whey protein, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Mix egg whites, Sweetener, baby food carrots and water (optional) in a bowl.
  4. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
  5. Spray glass pyrex dish with non-stick butter spray.
  6. Pour ingredients into dish.
  7. Bake 20 minutes.
  8. Makes 16 squares
