46kcal Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Protein Cookie Recipe

June 16, 2017 • By

Sounds yummy, right? Haha, they are, I swear! Okay, so let me share something with you. When I am looking for healthy protein dense recipes, I don’t look to Pinterest anymore. Why? Because I don’t trust it. (I’ve had too many fails).

I go to my good friend (for real, we are friends … she’ll probably even comment on this blog post), Rebekah Kathleen Clementson’s website and check her recipe section for ideas. She is a former bikini competitor, fitness model and Fitness RX magazine contribitor, not to mention AMAZING runner and baker! She follows IIFYM, rather than intuitive eating like me, but whether you count macros or not, you can still follow her recipes! Earlier this week, I was craving cookies and I went to her website for a recipe. I saw her Reese’s Pieces Gluten Free Cookies and wanted to make them so bad but checked my pantry and didn’t have Reese’s or Devotion Angel Food Cake Protein, so I improvised. I made these Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Protein Cookies instead. The recipe is nearly identical except the swap for protein (I use Cytosport 100% Whey Vanilla) and semi sweet chocolate chips in place of Reese’s Pieces. Check it out below!READ MORE

Turkey Veggie Egg White Scramble Breakfast Recipe

October 3, 2016 • By

This morning I was hungry for something salty, but of course, healthy so I looked around the kitchen and came up with this.  I talk a big game about eating clean and well but reality is with marathon training under way, breakfast is often overlooked even though I know how important it is. I am quick to grab a protein drink or shake but rarely take the time to make “real” food in the morning, and not for lack of time, but rather for lack of desire. I’ve noticed the effects of my erratic eating patterns with training because I’ve lost a few pounds and don’t “feel” as strong as I want to. So I’m aiming to make a commitment to breakfast and rather than reach for my old faithful of egg whites, turkey sausage and toast, today, I decided to throw some veggies in the mix and avocado for healthy fat (keeps you satiated) and see how it tasted. Think omelette for the lazy (my omelette flipping skills are not great).READ MORE


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.
