(This is actually what I ate on Monday)
Thanks Jenn for hosting!
I made a new version of the Microwave English Muffin today. The Microwaveable English Muffin that I used to make like 5 times a week was awesome but I always had extra “bread” and I ended up throwing some of it away half of the time- how wasteful!
So today I just changed up some of the ingredients a little bit. I used less almond flour and egg, but that’s about the only differences!
Paleo English Muffin
3 tablespoons almond flour
1 egg white (the real thing)
1 tbsp melted butter
1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix all ingredients together into a bowl. Pour batter into a separate bowl that is sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Microwave for 90 seconds. Let cool before cutting. Toast if desired!
I also had 1/2 of a grapefruit.
This particular grapefruit is from straight from Florida and it was the best one I’ve ever had. It was SO juicy and wasn’t too tart.
Veggie salad with avocado, topped with a fried egg. Strawberries on the side.
Cadbury Egg – I couldn’t resist!
I didn’t have all the ingredients so I changed it up a bit:
1 Medium sized squash (cooked)
1 egg white
2 handfuls of spinach
2 oz. feta cheese
spices: basil, oregano, s&p, garlic powder
Bake for 40 Minutes.
A Warm Cinnamon Roll- Well Kind of 🙂
A Quest Protein Bar– Cinnamon Roll flavor- warmed in microwave for 15 seconds 🙂
I hope your WIAW was as tasty as mine!
PS. Don’t forget to enter the Albion Fit Go Long Crew Giveaway! I will pick a winner on Thursday!
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!
