“Ahhh this porridge is just right!” is what you’ll be saying after you try this sweet & warming bowl of deliciousness! In true Goldilocks fashion it took a few tries to get this recipe perfect but luckily I didn’t have to worry about upsetting any bears in the process!
I don’t know about you guys but I love spinach! I love it in salads, smoothies, omelettes and now I even love it in pancakes! 😆 There’s something about unusually colored pancakes that make them even more appetizing to me. Like those red velvet pancakes I made a little while back. There’s just something about colorful pancakes that automatically produces a flavor explosion in my mouth 😋 Anyone know why that is?!
You guys this is such a yummy way to eat salmon! I tend to not do anything too exciting with my salmon – grilling it and throwing some guacamole on top is about as creative I get! Seriously though salmon + guac is a heavenly combo! 😋 Why is that when something is produced in the shape of a patty it automatically tastes 10 times better? I don’t know the answer to that but I do know that this burger recipe made plain old grilled salmon taste anything but plain and old!
Alright so it’s not the most macro-friendly of breakfasts out there but darn it, it does taste good! Every once in a while I like to have a hearty and sumptuous brunch dish like this one and forget about hoarding my fat macros. I can live without peanut butter for one day! This meal is kinda like that 80/20 balance principle we’re always harping on about. Enjoy foods like this 20% of the time, and it’ll keep you coming back to your egg white omelets with veggies for the other 80%. So relax a little and enjoy some Irish comfort in the kitchen.
They say chicken soup is good for the soul well I disagree. It’s not good it’s GREAT!!! When my mum was visiting recently I tried to find some ways that I could sneak extra protein into her meals. She doesn’t like to eat a lot in one go and enjoys soup so I picked up two cartons of Kirkland Signature Chicken Tortilla Soup from Costco. I couldn’t believe the macros! 1 cup (240g) yielded 11g of protein, and just 12g carbs and 3g of fat! I couldn’t resist having a bowl myself and serving it with a side of buttered toast. Mmmm so yummy and so comforting!
So remember that easy peasy sweet potato fries recipe from the other day? Well I knew I couldn’t leave you guys hanging so I’m delivering the goods on the other half of the recipe – the bang bang chicken and dipping sauce!
I’ve been absolutely loving the meals we get from Fia’s Fresh Meals lately. Out of all the pre-prepared microwavable meals I’ve tried in the past, they really are a cut above the rest! Not just because their vacuum-packed containers keep their meals super fresh, but the ingredients and the variety of delicious meals is of seriously superior quality. From BBQ chicken pizza to butternut squash lasagna and burritos, they’re menu is crowd pleaser!
True story! Part of the reason I love sleep so much is because it transports me to my favorite time, and meal, of the day…BREAKFAST!!! I used to be one of those people that always ate my breakfast on the go, usually it was pretty non-existent, it definitely didn’t contain much protein and almost inevitably was eaten distracted at my desk. But I’ve learnt some lessons along the way and now I prefer to take my time.
It might be true that no good story ever started with someone eating a salad, but just because salad stories might be boring, that doesn’t mean that they have to taste that way! We’ve been taking a lot lately about how to maintain and quantify that 80/20 balance with your nutrition. We’re 100% on board with the savvy advice from our friend EC at Optimized Nutrition, that 800g a day of fruit and veg is a good target for most adults to shoot for – some may need more, some a little less depending on your overall caloric intake.
Sick of chugging down protein shakes or chowing down on grilled chicken to hit your protein? Me too! So I was literally over the moon when I came across this high protein cheesecake recipe. This dessert has just 2g of fat and 14g of carbs per slice! Try it out.
