I am always trying to find new ways to season plain chicken breasts. I prep 2 family sized packs of chicken every Sunday to last us the week (along with all the other stuff I make) and I've made my fair share of flops. If it's not seasoned enough or not quite right, then we're stuck choking down flavorless, overcooked, chicken sawdust. Not fun. No more.Read More
Recipes go in & out of style. One week I want Mexican flavors, the next week I want to spiralize all my veggies, the week after that I may be really into rosemary on everything, but week after week, there's one side that always makes its way onto my menu. It's plain ol' roasted sweet potatoes.Read More
My current obsession: Balsamic Chicken Burgers.
I know exactly what you're thinking... "Those sound excellent, but ain't nobody got time for that!" Well, I'm here to tell you that you do have time and these lovely burgers can be a part of your weekly routine.Read More
Sunday rest days work a little different than workout days for me. There's something decadent, maybe even indulgent about them. I'm not sure if it's the relaxed atmosphere in the kitchen when I've got no place I need to be, the extra large cup of coffee I sip on, or the big ol' serving of fat I get in those rest day macros. Scratch that... I know what it is, it's definitely the fat.Read More
To be honest with you guys, I don't technically know what a buddah bowl is. From what I've seen, they seem to be bowls of food, mostly veggies, protein, and grains all in one. I figured this bowl I made for lunch today qualified and thus the sweet potato buddah bowl was born.Read More
Saturday mornings often times suck. I have to wake up early to workout. I'm still tired from working out the night before. There's never enough coffee. However, there is one shining beam of light on those dreary mornings and that is breakfast.
On RP you get more food (mostly more carbs) around your workout. When I workout first thing in the morning that translates into a big breakfast with all the fixin's post wod :D
So here's what we've got...
Egg White Veggie Omelet - Spray a skillet with olive oil spray & cook spinach, asparagus, peppers, & zucchini over medium heat until desired doneness. Pour in 165g of egg whites, let cook, fold, & flip.
Dave's Killer Bread - 1 slice, toasted.
Oatmeal - Cook 1/2 cup old fashioned oats with water. Mash 1.5 oz of banana with some cinnamon. Stir in oats, add a few berries, & a splash of vanilla extract.
3oz protein / 2 handfuls greens / 60g Carbs / 0g Fat
Flaky /Flake/ (adj.) - breaking or separating easily into small thin pieces; crazy or eccentric; me as soon as life gets a little crazy.
Hey internet world, bet you thought you might never hear from me again. To be honest, I thought you might never hear from me again too. Things got a little crazy from August to January and as you can see from that definition up there (straight from Webster's Dictionary) I've been a little flaky. My bad. Let me bring you up to speed:Read More
Well, that summer flew by *cue existential crisis*. Before it's gone entirely, bear with me, make your way over to the grill, and cook up this watermelon pizza. Yes, I said watermelon pizza.
I know it seems crazy, but this app is oh so good. It's the perfect way to start off your your next summer party and the perfect way to go out of this summer with a bang!Read More
Sometimes what we really need is not a recipe, not a health & nutrition fact, or a wellness incentive. Instead, what we need, is some inspiration.
Today's breakfast inspiration got a little help from last night's dinner. It's also the kind of breakfast that you could eat for any meal in a pinch. It's chicken hash with veggies & taters all topped with runny fried eggs. Yes chicken hash is a thing, yes there's bacon, yes it's delicious...
- CHICKEN HASH: Cook some chopped bacon and chopped onions until fat has rendered & bacon is beginning to crisp up. Add in shredded leftover rotisserie chicken and cook until golden brown.
- VEGGIES: I used a mix of bell peppers, zucchini, and chopped cherry tomatoes sauteed until tender.
- TATERS: Super thin sliced yellow, red, and purple potatoes cooked on the stove in a little butter, covered until tender and then uncovered until golden & crisped.
- EGGS: Fried in a little grassfed butter until over easy.
- COFFEE: Iced, cause summer's not over just yet.
Now that all my summer craziness is beginning to die down, I've found a little time to catch up on the posts I've been meaning to write and the foods I've been meaning to eat :D
In case you didn't know, I've got a family and a boyfriend who know how to eat. The family would eat all day long if they could and the boyfriend is on a pretty regimented eating plan that involves a lot of food and that can be hard to manage thanks to his busy days. In an attempt to make things a little easier for everyone I've been doing a good deal of food prep every Sunday. The point of the story being.... these roasted chickens save my life every single week.Read More
