Breakfast Meal Prep

In my world, Sunday’s are for spiritual rejuvenation, meal prep – and other relaxing things. I decided to change it up a little bit and do a breakfast prep. Judging by how full I’ve been from breakfast this morning after a 6 AM spin class, I think it was a success.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grab a muffin sheet (like the one pictured to the left). Grease the pan with coconut oil, add one whole egg and one egg white. Top with spinach or any other leafy green you desire, add black pepper and Himalayan salt. Bake for about 15-18 minutes. Keep in the fridge, reheat and enjoy!

I found this idea from the Whole 30 recipe listed on their Instagram page. With that recipe, you put the egg on top of one strip of bacon. My goal has been to cut down on fat and sugar throughout my #cruisecountdown journey [and beyond] so I didn’t add the bacon this time. This made 12 “egg muffins.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is paleo and whole 30 approved  Enjoy! 🙂

Memorial Day Weekend, goodness

A little late on this post but better late than never….

Who doesn’t LOVE to grill out in the summer?

Prepared by yours truly – an amazing Hawaiian Kabob with chicken and a grape/avocado arugula salad. Recipe found on Pinterest – Cooking Classy

I made a few adjustments on the recipe. For the marinade, I used gluten free soy sauce, minced garlic, honey and olive oil. In the salad, we used balsamic vinegar and olive oil, Himalayan salt, and ground black pepper. The salad has arugula, grapes, avocado, purple onion and walnuts. I also got some goat cheese for the guys. It was absolutely delicious.

 

Enjoy x if you prepare it, let me know how it turns out!

Red Wine, Meal Prep and Eric Church

Turn the quiet up, turn the noise down.

It’s Sunday Funday, also known as meal prep day.

Based on the title of this post, this afternoon has been nothing short of amazing. I have really grown to enjoy “me time.” I love pretty much anything artsy, including cooking. There’s just something about creativity that soothes.

As for the recipe choice – I experienced all types of weather this morning on my way to church. Rain, ice, and SNOW. I figured chili was a great idea for today. It is a crock pot recipe so I unfortunately will not get to taste it for a few hours, but doesn’t it look delicious? The important things that I look for in these dishes are of course, dairy and gluten free, but also an adequate enough amount of protein and just enough carbs to get me through my WOD’s after work. In addition to what is listed in the recipe I may boil some rice to pour the chili over.

Enjoy x

Meal Prep Recipe – Paleo Turkey Chili 

Happy Monday, everyone –

This weekend was pretty crazy for me, but I did manage to find and prepare an amazing recipe that I wanted to share with you. Ever since I decided to take control of my dairy allergy and eliminate things such as sour cream and cheese, I’ve never really had interest in any type of chili. I’m not really sure what is so different about this chili – maybe the sweet potato vs. the typical assortment of beans – but whatever the case, it knocked my socks off. One of my goals this year is to move towards making more “paleo” food choices. In the past, I tried stopping certain eating habits cold turkey and in the end, I ended up reverting back to my old ways. Now, I do not believe in just changing something in an instant, especially when it comes to food choices. I think starting slow and making gradual food substitutions will be easier on the body and easier on the mind. I definitely want to hear your feed back on this one. If you made any additions or left anything out, I want to hear about it! 

To find the recipe (which was not made by me), visit the website for Kalyn’s Kitchen.

Have a great week! xo

Paleo Chicken Curry and other things Paleo

Greetings –

I’m Back! 🙂

It’s 2016 and what most people are doing at this point is reflecting on the past year and looking forward to what they may accomplish this year. In the past year, I’ve discovered Crossfit and have learned various other ways to live a healthy lifestyle while managing a gluten and dairy allergy. I see lots of people on the internet making fun of “Crossfitters” and their way of fitness and DIET. Paleo is something I’ve slowly discovered. Fortunately, I do not go to a box that preaches about Paleo like it is straight out of God’s personal cookbook. I have learned, however, that paleo really syncs with the way I am forced to eat.

So…on that note….here goes nothing. I made my first paleo meal.

 I applaud the blogger who posted this (found via Pinterest, of course). Paleo Chicken Curry -mynaturalfamily.com

Enjoy! More posts to come xo
