Quick Protein Packed Berry Smoothie

So many people ask me, “What is a quick to go meal to stave off my hunger and possible binge eating?”  I love berry smoothies! So, why not make a Quick Protein-packed Berry Smoothie!  So, using a good quality protein powder (I use protein powder from Healthy Performance)  and a few ingredients you can create a powerful nutrient rich and protein packed smoothie to keep you satisfied and healthy.

I always fall back on this recipe when I’m either in a hurry or don’t know what to eat!


My Favorite Oatmeal Recipe

I made this oatmeal dish for a recent get together with some family and it was delicious.  You could even make this dish ahead of time and portion it out for the rest of the week for breakfast.  Then you wouldn’t be scrambling to make your healthy breakfast in the am.  Just grab the container and go!

Clean Eating Coconut French Toast

Who doesn’t love FRENCH TOAST!  I seriously used to be the carb queen and if I don’t keep that in check I could really swing the other way once again.  In an effort to treat myself every once in awhile I found this awesome recipe from my favorite website, none other than the Gracious Pantry!  She pairs my favorite foods together, carbs and coconut and voila we have Clean Eating Coconut French Toast!!!

But in all honesty I eat clean pretty much 100% of the time and I really try to find ways to keep it fun and interesting.  Eating clean doesn’t have to be boring or bland!  It’s all about finding alternatives for flavor that won’t be harmful to your body.

Clean Eating Egg White Veggie Frittata

Ever made a frittata?  Need a new recipe for egg whites?!  I get bored of the same foods day in and day out.  Egg whites and steel cut oats are pretty much my go too!  So, we made this clean eating egg white veggie fritatta from scratch.

I’m really trying to limit my carbs per day to 1 carb since I am leaving for our trip to Bora Bora in 16 days!  I really gotta step up my game!  I’m following the countdown to competition meal plan and focusing on nailing my results.

So this no carb meal is right in line with what we are striving for!

So while Matt is not the guy who measures things out but throws a bunch of randomness together and it actually always is pretty darn tasty!

This is our own egg white Frittata!

Acai Bowl Breakfast Recipe Clean Eating Approved

Seriously I have the very best husband in the world.  He comes up with these awesome creations all the time.  This one he found on someone else’s page and tweaked it to fit our needs.  It’s power packed with a healthy punch!!!!

This is a great Clean Eating Approved Breakfast Recipe that will leave you feeling full but also satisfied. It is full of superfoods and great brain fuel to start your day!  I hope you love the Acai bowl breakfast recipe as much as we do.  Everyone struggles to find healthy breakfast recipes that you don’t get bored with over time.  I used to eat oatmeal every single day but quickly got burned out.  Now I have a few staples that I rotate and this works so much better!

Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt

My husband is a clean eater right along with me and he must of been scrolling through Facebook and this clean eating cookie dough greek yogurt recipe came up.  He was in the kitchen whipping something up and asked me if I wanted to try it!  So of course I’m always up for a snack I said yes!!!

Anything with yogurt, peanut butter and chocolate I am game! It is called clean eating cookie dough yogurt!!!  AMAZING!!! Now I would’t put this on the menu for every night as a snack but this is a perfect treat to replace your bowl of ice cream or the blizzard.  Let me know when you try it and what you think!!

Whole30 Pork Tenderloin Recipe

This past week I started my journey to completing the Whole30 nutrition plan.  I have to share this amazing Pork Tenderloin recipe with you because we can’t stop talking about how good it was.  If you didn’t get a chance to read the blog post about it you can see what I’m up to here with the whole30 plan.

I am doing the Whole30 plan to kick my sugar cravings, to see if I can improve my chronic fatigue and my skin clarity.  Over the summer I allowed myself to relax and enjoy a few too many cocktails and treats.  I don’t regret that decision but I do notice that it is taking a toll on my energy level, on my concentration and my skin. I have been curious about the Whole30 plan for quite some time and I know there is never a good time to do it so I am going for it right now.

This is my first week and I have on my meal plan to make a few of the recipes in the book.

We had some pork tenderloin in the freezer so this was our first recipe from the cookbook.  The verdict was that it is a huge hit.  We enjoyed it and we will rotate that through our meal plan. If you would like to try it I am sharing it here with you.


21 Day Fix Extreme Recipe: Chicken Fajitas

We are also experimenting with the recipes on the Fix Extreme and so far there has not been 1 recipe that we haven’t loved!  We made the chicken Fajitas on Sunday  night and we actually made extra so we would have lunch for Monday.  Not only was it really delicious, it made great leftovers too!  This is something you could make in bulk and portion out for the entire week and have lunches for a few days.  If you have non clean eaters in your family you can still do the chicken fajitas but just give everyone else shells to use instead of lettuce!

So please put this in rotation, it’s quite awesome!  Make sure to let me know what you think!

This recipe makes 4 servings and 2 fajitas each.

21 Day Fix Extreme Beef Stew

I think that I could honestly eat this every single day!  It’s by far one of my favorite recipes!!!  It’s straight from the 21 Day Fix Extreme booklet.  Both my husband and I absolutely love this!

It is a green container and a red container and it feels like a hearty filling meal.

It makes 6 servings, approximately 1 1/4 cups each.


Turkey Lettuce Wraps

We just finished up an amazing family dinner!  Seriously everything we have tried from the nutrition guide has been delicious so far!  Instead of lettuce wraps for the kids I used whole grain taco shells, gave them low fat cheese and greek yogurt for on their tacos.

Pork Carnitas

I might have found one of the most amazing concoctions ever!!  We have been eating clean for 3 years now and there are a few recipes that my husband will openly recommend to others when we discuss clean eating.  This pork carnitas recipe takes the cake for husband recommendations.  It also makes killer left overs.  So if you are like me and you need to plan for the week, throw this in the crockpot for dinner and have lunch for the next few days as well.
