[Paleo-ish] Protein Smoothie

Smoothies should be a staple in every household. They are quick, nutritious, easy to make, and perfect for on-the-go. You can hide so many greens in smoothies, but still have it taste like dessert! I love to add protein powder to all of my smoothies because I hate drinking just protein powder + water. I like the consistency to be a bit thicker and with more substance. My favorite protein powder (at the moment) is Paleo Pro protein powder (I love the aztec vanilla). It is all natural, soy-free, whey-free, and contains beef and egg protein. I love that it

Granola Stuffed Baked Apple

It’s Monday again?! What the? Well, don’t fret. New week, new goals – LETS DO THIS. And I have the perfect breakfast treat for you to start your week off with… What is the best part of apple pie? THE APPLES. Cinnamon, sweet, tangy, and goupy… that last word may not sound the most appetizing, but it’s true! The apples are goupy. And I love it! The best part about this dish is that it tastes like apple pie, but a way healthier version. So healthy that I made it for breakfast this morning πŸ™‚ I love anything tangy and

Skinny Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is one of my favorite dishes! Unfortunately, it is normally made swimming in mayonnaise. Bleh. Not only is mayonnaise unhealthy to eat, but it is also a good way to put on a few elle-bees (lbs).  Don’t fret, there is hope for us tuna salad lovers! Replace that mayo with some Greek yogurt! I promise you won’t even be able to tell the difference. I also added a fresh honey crisp apple because it’s fall and they are soooo delicious. This tuna salad is perfect over a bed of greens (my fave way), as a sandwich, in a

Creamy Avocado Zoodles with Steelhead Trout

Fish is something that I could eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Both of my parents grew up by the ocean and so my brothers and I grew up on a lot of delicious seafood and fish. This dish is the whole package. Creamy, rich, crunchy, comforting, lemony, peppery… mouthwatering. If you’re craving pasta, but want something a little lighter and less carbs – than you’re in luck. It is light enough for a summer dinner, but heavy enough for a cozy night in during the fall. Avocado and Greek yogurt mixed with light flaky steelhead – out of this world! If

10 Foods for Flat Abs

Diet, diet, diet, I cannot say it enough. I’m not talking about going on a diet, but having a healthy, balanced diet – all of the time. I promise that you will not see abs just by doing sit-ups all day. By eating the right foods and doing full body workouts, you can get that line down your stomach and six pack abs that you’re working towards! Here are some of the top foods that you can give your body to help get that flat stomach you want. A lot of it has to do with keeping a healthy digestive

What I Ate Today (Detox)

WHEW! has it been a crazy busy week for me! Going, going, going, non-stop. Almost everyday this past week, I got home and did not feel like cooking. Which means, I didn’t! Instead I chowed down on whatever was handy (i.e. chips, frosted animal crackers WITH peanut butter (my muse), pizza). These things shouldn’t even be in my house! Needless to say, my body hated me for it and I could tell by the way I felt and looked. Time. to. DETOX. The word “detox” means different things to different people. To me, it means consuming raw vitamins, lots of veggies,

Banana Coffee Smoothie

Goooooodmorning! Just a little hyper over here from my insanely good smoothie I made for breakfast. The other day I was thinking – what IF I took what I frequently have for breakfast (banana, yogurt, coffee) and just blended it up to make a mind-blowing smoothie? Brilliance, I tell you. Just wait until you try this.   Perfect way to kickstart your morning or get ready for a workout. This smoothie is loaded with healthy complex carbs, lots of protein, and a caffeine buzz because let’s be honest, no one can function without their beloved cup’o joe. The perfect blend
