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! ?
I can’t believe it’s already mid-September! Where did summer go? While I’m sad to see the days getting shorter, I do love fall flavors. And there’s nothing more fall than pumpkin pie! These pumpkin pie overnight oats combine all my favorite fall flavors in a convenient single serve dish. They are easy to whip up and super tasty! They’re perfect for any pumpkin spice latté lovers out there who are trying to keep their addiction in check. 😆
This easy oatmeal bake is the perfect late summer dish. The true summer version of this would be cold overnight oats because I use my oven a lot less mid summer. And the true fall version of this would use apples instead of peaches and plums. For those few weeks when summer is starting to fade but fall hasn’t quite arrived… this combination is perfect.
These cauliflower tots are a great low carb alternative to the traditional tater tot. Plus they’re baked, which cuts down on unnecessary oils. If you have an air fryer try using it in place of the oven to create a crispier texture!
I don’t know about you but tater tots remind me of a simpler time. They bring me back to school lunches and hanging out with friends. My college would often serve them at the dining hall. I remember the excitement my roommates and I would have when it was tot day! They’re just so playful! Crispy little nuggets just waiting to be dipped in ketchup and enjoyed.
The cheeseburger pizza isn’t a new invention. Papa John’s Double Cheeseburger Pizza is back on their menus by popular demand! Far from being the worst possible choice when going out to eat, when you look at the nutrition information for a slice of this little piece heaven, you’ll see that the macros really aren’t all that bad! The issue really only comes when you decide to polish off a whole one on your own. 😋
We recently asked our followers to determine if they could only keep one and had to give up the other, which would they choose? Cheeseburgers or pizza?! Well when it came down to it, the verdict was….
These gluten free banana oatmeal muffins make a perfect snack anytime of day. I love them pre-workout! They are flourless, and can be made dairy free with a few substitutions. If you’re anything like me, you enjoy having a homemade baked good every once in a while. But most recipes yield 12-24 servings which I don’t always want sitting on my counter tempting me! 👀 The idea of a single serving mug-muffin is a great solution, and even more-so when it’s microwavable!
These shrimp fajita and peppers are a super yummy option for your weekly meal prep. They’re quick and healthy and because you cook everything all on one sheet pan, there’s minimal mess too! I love Mexican food because it’s easy to make, full of flavor and all the while can be kept very lean. You can also easily add ingredients on – like choosing to serve with tortillas or guacamole if you need more carbs and fat – or just keep it simple and lean. This family recipe really caters for all and removes any concern about trying to hit your macros.
Chocolate, coconut and avocado?! You bet! Together these simple ingredients combine to form the perfect keto chocolate mousse. It’s low on carbs and packed full of good for you fats! The best part is how easy this is to whip together. Better yet, you can customize it based on your own needs! Which is always a plus when we’re talking to flexible dieters.
