I couldn’t wait for breakfast to reheat my Berry Protein Loaf. I added a scoop of almond butter and some extra blueberries! Yum!
10:45 Snack: Rocky Road UMP Shake and then some strawberries about a half hour later.
Randomness: 2 hard boiled eggs, carrots and celery with peanut butter, and the last of my Cheezy cauliflower mash.
Then a paleo sweet potato brownie! (Recipe that I promised is below…keep reading!)
4:30 Snack: Quest Protein Bar- Vanilla Almond
After crossfit I had dinner but I was too tired to make anything and this morning I woke up late- and this is serious, I got up at 6 am and was in the car by 6:15, what a record! So the crockpot tenderloin for dinner, well that didn’t happen!
Dinner: 7:45 Subway
And a blueberry goodness! What’s that you ask?! Warm blueberries with a coconut butter drizzle!
The drizzle= 2 tbsp Nikki’s coconut butter + water + 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder. Mix and microwave for about 30 seconds.
Drizzle on blueberries= Blueberry goodness!
Can you tell blueberries are one of my favorite fruits!!
And last but not least……
I have a great recipe to share with you today! My crossfit coach was telling me that he found a recipe for paleo sweet potato brownies and I knew I had to make some asap!
I do not follow the Paleo diet completely but I do enjoy making paleo recipes sometimes. Here is one that stands out for sure!
Paleo Sweet Potato Brownies
Adapted from PaleOMG
- 1 sweet potato
- 3 eggs, whisked
- ¼ cup Coconut Oil, melted
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 2 tbsp dark chocolate chips
- 3 tablespoons Coconut Flour
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F
- Cook Sweet potato in the microwave or the oven. I cooked mine in the oven for about 5 minutes.
- Once your sweet potato is soft and cooked through, peel off the skin and mash it up in a bowl.
- Add your wet ingredients: coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and whisked eggs to the bowl and mix together.
- Then add your dry ingredients: coconut flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and chocolate chips.
- Mix well to incorporate everything together.
- Pour into an 8×8 glass baking dish. I used a round dish because that’s all I had.
- Bake for 25 minutes
- Let cool and enjoy!
Don’t eat the whole batch in one sitting. I know it is tempting!
Have a good Hump Day!
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?
