I LOVE banana bread! But the macros on any standard slice are usually too dear to spend. Take the Starbucks banana walnut bread for example. 1 slice yields 52g carbohydrates, 21g fat and 6g protein. That’s 420 calories without so much as a sniff of chocolate chips!
This pumpkin protein chocolate mug cake is sure to become a fast-favorite throughout the fall and winter season. Not only is it deliciously tasty, but it’s also a great way to get some good quality protein in without having to resort to grilled chicken or yet another protein bar. Although protein bars may be your go-to protein option when you’re on the go, if you’re finding yourself chowing down on them at the end of the night when you’re at home, you might want to think about switching things up to something with some more natural ingredients.

There’s nothing like the flavors of traditional Italian meatballs to transport you from your kitchen to la bell’Italia! And now you can make that happen any night of the week with this super simple recipe. These meatballs are great for your weekly meal prepping, or if you’re cooking for the whole family.
Eating out can be a challenge, so I recently I perused Subway’s entire menu and came up with these 9 healthy picks for you to enjoy the next time you’re on the go and decide to “eat fresh”. Living up to its tagline, Subway is pretty nutritionally sound these days with its chicken made from 100% white chicken and containing less than 1% soy protein. Subway also says all its chicken is raised without antibiotics and is free of artificial flavors and preservatives.
Finding high protein meals at your favorite fast food stops like Panera can be a challenge. Just because you’re picking something that appears healthy doesn’t mean it’s gonna have a lot of protein, and vice versa, a lot of protein doesn’t necessarily make a meal “healthy” either. Whether you’re trying to lose weight or simply looking to keep your body composition in check, choosing wisely at places like Panera can go a long way to helping you reach your goals.
Quesadillas used to be my go-to order at this Italian restaurant called Ragazzi in Cayman – at least for lunch anyways because for dinner you sure as hell don’t wanna miss out on their stone-baked pizzas! Anyway, they had a lobster quesadilla that really was to die for! Since I left Cayman I can honestly say I don’t think I’ve had one quesadilla. That was over 4 years ago! Isn’t that crazy!? Until the other day after I’d made some shredded chicken and happened to have some low-carb tortillas on hand, the inspiration to whip up some Mexican goodness came to mind.
Say goodbye to “cheat meal” guilt with this low calorie buffalo chicken pizza recipe! 😋
Since lockdown measures were instated in Boulder, Colorado around 16th March, Jason and I have been eating exclusively at home. Aside from grabbing groceries at the store or walking our dogs we really haven’t left the house – which has been surprisingly great in terms of our nutrition and general well-being! We’ve been walking more, we’re getting more sleep, we’re moderating the intensity of our workouts much better because we have minimal equipment at home and, despite financial stresses like the rest of the world is facing with all this uncertainty, this is probably the most relaxed we’ve felt in a long time! Slowing down our pace of life and living more simply has been extremely eye opening for us.
Alright so this recipe does not yield the most macro-friendly of results. Oops! But it’s one for your guests to splurge on and will fill your home with the most tantalizing flavors. Your guests will be #drooling! Not only that, but because it’s cooked in a crock pot, it only takes you 10 minutes to prep! Giving you any extra time you need to plan your day of sensible holiday feasting! ?
