Protein Frosty

oscar-nord-340427-unsplash.jpg

I don’t know about you but when it comes time to close out my feeding window… THAT is when I’m always craving something sweet! This Protein Frosty is an absolute MUST and it’s SO easy!!

Ingredients

  • 1 Scoop Vanilla Protein Powder

  • 12 oz Vanilla almond milk

  • 1 C. of ice

Directions

Add 12 oz of Vanilla Almond Milk to your blender. I like to add the liquid first, because since I use plant based proteins, they tend to be a little harder to blend if you put them in first! Then add the 1 scoop of protein powder and the 1 C of ice. BLEND until your liking! To make it thicker add more ice, to make it more runny add less ice.

EXTRA GOODIES:

I absolutely LOVE adding 1 serving of PB FIT powder or 1 T. of unsweetend cocoa powder after I have blended my frosty. I just stir it in with a spoon because I love the chunks - BUT feel free to blend it with the rest of the ingredients if you would rather!

HIGH CARB DAY:

Now, I’m going to let you in on a little secret… a little piece of Protein Frosty Heaven and the FAST Track To Fit girls PERFECT swap out for an ice cream cone!

CARAMEL RICE CAKES… yup! You read that right. I like to buy either the regular sized caramel rice cakes and dip them in my Protein Frosty.. OR even better… buy the bag of minis and you can scoop them perfectly! This combo tastes EXACTLY like the very last bite of an ice cream cone… and it’s literally LIFE!!

Healthy Hamburger Helper

This recipe is based off of the AMAZING Laura Goldberg's Dairy Free Healthy Hamburger Helper over at LLbalanced.com. If you guys are not following her, you are seriously MISSING OUT!!! There is not one recipe of hers I have tried that I didn't like - and the hubs too!! She also has a cookbook that just came out that I can't WAIT to get my hands on!!

This Healthy Hamburger Helper seriously blows my mind at how much it tastes just like hamburger helper but packed with so much more nutrients and tasty ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz pasta (I love Eat Banza pasta to keep it nice and clean)
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion
  • 1 medium zucchini, diced
  • 3 gloves garlic
  • 3 T. nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 plain Kite Hill Cream Cheese (you can sub regular cream cheese if you would like)
  • 1 C. organic chicken bone broth
  • 1 T. avocado oil
  • 1 lb lean meat of choice (I like to use grass fed beef)

Prep

1. Cook pasta according to directions and set aside.

2. Dice yellow onion and zucchini and mince your garlic. Set aside keeping garlic separate.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together paprika, onion powder, nutritional yeast, sea salt and pepper. Set aside.

4. In a blender, puree cream cheese and Chicken bone broth.

Cook

1. Heat oil in a large skillet or pot. Once oil is warmed add lean meat of your choice and cook thoroughly. Once cooked, empty meat onto a paper towel lined plate and set aside.

2. De-glaze your pan by adding a little bit of water - enough to scrape the pan. Add your onions and zucchini and turn to medium - low heat, and cook for about 3-5 minutes. Add minced garlic and spice/nutritional yeast mixture with another spash of water and cook until garlic is fragrant.

4. Add meat, pasta and cream cheese mixture, stirring to incorporate all ingredients until liquid has thickened. Add salt/pepper to taste!

Macro Counts will vary based on serving portions.

This dish is packed with so much flavor and one of my absolute favorites. I first found a similar recipe at thedefineddish.com and tweaked it a little bit to my liking! It's super easy and quick to prepare when you are in a pinch.

3. Open up the breast to stuff. Spoon half 1/4 Cup of pesto into each butterflied breast and top with desired amount of Kite Hill almond cream cheese. Fold chicken breast back over.

4. Wrap 3 slices of prosciutto around each chicken breast. Feel free to secure prosciutto with toothpicks, although it is not necessary.

5. Place chicken in small baking dish and drizzle with avocado oil and sprinkle with pepper to your liking.

6. Place chicken in the over and bake until chicken is cooked all the way through and prosciutto is nice and crisp which is usually about 30-35 minutes.

Low Carb Baked Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Due to our history with everyone telling us to stay away from anything carbs, I usually find low carb days the easiest to whip up something quick for dinner. This low carb Baked Salmon with Avocado Salsa is one of Jordan's all-time favorite meals that I cook, and when the #hubs likes a healthy meal... that is a HUGE win in my book!!

Ingredients

  • 2 - 6 oz salmon fillets
  • 2 avocados
  • 2 T. chopped cilantro
  • 2 limes
  • 1 T. avocado oil
  • 1/2 small red onion
  • 1/2 tsp ancho chile powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium sized bowl, mix together 2 diced avocado, 2 T. chopped cilantro, juice of 2 limes, 1/2 diced red onion, salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

In a small bowl mix together 1/2 tsp. ancho chile power, 1 tsp onion powder, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper. 

Brush 2 salmon fillets with 1 Tbl avocado oil (EVOO is fine) and generously cover salmon with spice mixture until all the mixture has been used. Cover salmon and put in the refrigerator for 30 minutes (it's ok to cook immediately if you need to).

Bake salmon for 20 minutes or until nice and pink in the middle!!

I like to pair this salmon with asparagus, roasted veggies, or cauliflower rice.
