Bacon and Egg English Muffins

One of my go-to breakfast options is to make a faux Egg McMuffin. You know, the kind that you feel real good about, and tastes leaps and bounds better than that sorry thing you can get through a major fast food chain’s drive through window. Make the egg rounds in advance, toast the English muffins…

Meal Prep | Week of April 1

Happy Easter! Hope the bunny brought you healthy snacks and treat yo’ self treats. Having to wake up at 6 am on a Sunday, because you were too tired to fill and hide eggs for your 3 year old the night before, has its perks. Had an early start on meal prep and it was…

Chicken w/ Mushroom Gravy

A little bit goes a long way. While the gravy is made the traditional way – with a roux of butter and flour – a little goes a long way to add a punch of umami flavor to your typical boring chicken and rice dish.   Ingredients: 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast 1 cup cremini…

Meal Prep | Week of March 25

“There’s not enough space in the fridge for all that food.” Not all refrigerators are created equal. Some are smaller. Some are bigger. But how you store your food should still be the same. How you store it is just as important as how you prep it. If you’re a tad on the OCD side…

Greek Yogurt Marinated Chicken

A great way to add flavor without adding fat is to supplement with acid – lemon juice, vinegar, and Greek yogurt all aid in packing a big punch, without the added calories of oils or butter. Perfectly paired with a bright salad of cucumber, tomatoes and pickled red onions – this is one of those…

Meal Prep | Week of March 18

Waste not, want not. The old proverb rings true with many aspects of life. It’s the idea of using your resources carefully and without extravagance, so that you’ll never be in need. Meal prep is something where this practice can be proven week after week. Always make a list. Never go to the grocery without…

Seafood Paella

Life is – far too often – lived at a fast pace. Sometimes, that’s what we want. We want to rush through everything – brushing our teeth. The monotonous work day. Sunday meal prep. That awkward dinner party with your drunk uncle who just wants to talk about politics. I get it. Things like that,…

Lemon Garlic Cod

There’s a reason that the combo of lemon and garlic works so well with so many different proteins. The acidic punch from the lemon paired with the deep flavors of garlic is just a flavor combo that will never die. This works especially well when you’re looking for something with basically no added fat, but…

Meal Prep | Week of March 4

We’re gonna try something different. On so many blogs, including my own, you see singular recipes. Which is all good if you’re into that sort of thing. But since the majority of my food is done in meal prep fashion – I thought I would shift to providing actual weekly meal prep examples with a…

Grilled Cuban Chicken Bowls

Going into my 5th week of my RP cut, I’m still on base – so still enjoying the luxury of all the food! I’m pretty sure I’ll have to make my way into Cut 1 next week, so I’m making the most of this while it lasts. I made a couple different accompaniments for this…

Espresso-Rubbed Sirloin

First three weeks of an RP cut down, just 9 more to go! These past few weeks have felt great – my meals were on point and I didn’t get bored with any of the redundancy (I’ve been eating the same thing at each meal time instead of rotating around). We’ll see how I feel…

Green Banana Breakfast Smoothie

I’m back on the strict RP train for a Cut – just in time for the New Year! Those holiday indulgences have gotten the best of me, and I wasn’t exactly on track over the past few months. So time to reign everything in and get back at it. One of the hardest things for…
