Banana Protein Oat Pancakes – Recipe

March 30, 2016 • By

So I’ll admit I’m not a huge breakfast fan.  I eat it because I know it’s importance but I typically grab a protein shake or egg whites and microwave turkey sausage … nothing too fancy.  I’m just not ultra hungry in the morning.  But occasionally on the weekends, it’s nice to make something for the family or post long run that will fill up my belly.  And I’ve heard about protein pancakes, but again, honesty here, I hate how regular pancakes blow up in my stomach normally, I haven’t eaten one in 10 years or so.  No lie.

So back on topic.  These pancakes.  I needed a recipe that utilized all the things I already had on hand in my kitchen.  Unfortunately they seemed to all call for cinnamon, a spice I love, but have recently run out of and not restocked!  So I tweaked a promising one I saw on Slick Housewives.  Instead of cinnamon, I replaced it with powdered organic peanut butter.

Tilapia Stuffed Zucchini Boat Recipe

December 16, 2015 • By

Does your family love fish tacos?  But you are trying to incorporate fewer carbs and veggies into your diet?  Well, if so, this is the recipe for you.  Bear with me as I made this one up on my own (having made zucchini boats using ground turkey from other websites and having tried them using other fillers, I knew it wouldn’t be tough, but I wasn’t sure how these would taste), but this was one of those nights where I literally had no corn or wheat tortillas and had only tilapia (as far as a meat option) yet had quite a few veggies to pick from.  So here is what I threw together.  I made this for 2 so I’m multiplying my ingredients by 2 to have it serve for 4. (3 tilapia filets was too much – learning curve).  These are healthy, but with the avacado on top, they do add more fat, albeit unsaturated fats.  So give them a try!

Skinny Turkey Enchilada Noodle Bake

December 6, 2015 • By

So I love Skinny Mom Recipes!  They are healthy and usually pretty easy.  I’ve been wanting to try a skinny enchilada recipe because Dustin loves enchiladas but hates how unhealthy they are and I don’t like cheese so I was hoping a skinny recipe would be light on cheese, but still loaded with Mexican flavor.  This recipe was awesome for exactly that.

Recipe Tweak to Gimmesomeoven’s Garlicky Baked Shrimp

November 15, 2015 • By

This past week we made Gimmesomeoven’s garlicky baked shrimp recipe (originally from Real Simple magazine) but substituted equal amounts applesauce for the butter that it called for.  It was a tad sweeter than I expected, but super yummy, and VERY healthy!  We served it over whole wheat pasta and had a side of veggies but they would also be good all mixed together!  Large shrimp work best!READ MORE
