Nilla Wafer Numminess!!

I have been making this shake PWO ever since my husband got on a Nilla Wafer kick. I must say, having the Myofusion Banana Perfection protein powder makes this shake 10 times better!!! *Side note–If you have not tried the Myofusion products, you must try them today.

Sushi On My Plan!!

I have posted this one before, but its one I feel needs to be brought back to the top. I see so many people in love with sushi and think that sushi rolls are always healthy. I hate to burst your bubble, but not all sushi rolls are alike. The popular California roll has aprproximately.. Read more →

Training Days Rock My Sweet Tooth

It’s my favorite time of day again… and If you are a client of Erik’s (Lean Bodies Consulting) then you probably have guessed it.  Post- workout a.k.a. PWO. I love the freedom and flexibility I have with choosing my own ‘treats’! As long as if fits within the specific caloric and carb amount he prescribes.. Read more →

It’s Pumpkin Time Again!!

Building A Kebab

I’ve used kebabs in my plan for quite some time now. I simply weigh out my protein portion and then build my kebabs. They are perfect for when we are having people over for dinner because it allows me to eat what everyone is eating.  Plus everyone realizes just how yummy healthy food can taste… Read more →

Ranch Potatoes

Just one of the many ways I like to make my potatoes. I love making these for the family too. Check out the video for tips on how to make a large batch, but still manage to make single servings from it.  

Adding ‘Substance’ To The Carb-Less Pancake

Yeah, yeah, yeah….I’m sure you are getting sick of hearing about my love for pumpkin. Too bad!! :p It’s just crazy to think that I hate pumpkin pie, yet I make so many other things with canned pumpkin. Today is no different. My husband requested my low carb pumpkin pancakes but with more carbs. LOL.. Read more →

Stevia and Strawberries

So, I’ve been blogging for a while now, and the majority of my recipes started with me using splenda. I’ll admit I was reluctant to give up my splenda because with the exception of one alternate (that I could only get online). I was not very impressed with some of the stevia products I had..

Turkey and Carrot Soup

So, I have had a few requests for ‘on plan’ soup recipes, so I decided to play around with one of my favorites. The hard thing with soups is being able to devide servings evenly. I think that if I had to do this recipe over, I would add in my turkey AFTER I serve.. Read more →

High-Protein Tuna Melt

I am in love with the La Tortilla Low Carb, Low-Fat Tortillas. I have now gotten my husband hooked on them too ;) He is a sandwich type of guy, but instead of just one sandwich, he usually want two. At 50-80 calories per slice of bread, he’s looking at 320 calories in bread alone!.. Read more →

A Much Needed Update

Stuffed Peppers

I was in the grocery store the other day and I scored on some red, orange and yellow peppers. I think I ended up paying $1.40 for 4 of them!! I immediately thought of this recipe and grabbed a few green peppers in addition to my other colors and headed home to cook. :D For.. Read more →

Food and Texture

Okay, so I wasn’t always open to the idea of trying new foods. Not only was I a picky eater, I was also particular when it comes to texture. Oatmeal was a no-no, and keep cottage cheese away from me!! So as I was whipping up my cottage cheese ranch dip I noticed that sometimes.. Read more →

Pumpkin, My Low-Carb Secret

Fall is around the corner and I always think of two foods. Cranberries and pumpkin. I make sure to stock up on fresh cranberries and freeze them, because I know they are not around for long. Well, unless you want to pay a fortune for a small fresh bag. ;) Don’t go stocking up on.. Read more →

Breakfast For Everyone-Pumpkin Pancakes

Just a quick blog post this morning. As I was getting ready to make breakfast for the kids, I decided instead of just whipping up their pancakes, I would weigh out what amounts I use and post it up. I make this one often, so I usually just ‘eyeball’ the amounts. Here is what I.. Read more →
