Holiday Week Meal Plan

Holiday Week Meal Plan

Dec 24, 2015

So the holidays are here!  Merry Christmas to everyone and “May the Force be With You” getting all your shopping, wrapping, baking, and traveling done these next two weeks.  I’ve still got a long list of To Dos but have been side-lined with being sick – rare for me.  At least I started anti-biotics today and should be good as new in time...

Gingerbread Protein Pancakes

  In planning out our Christmas morning breakfast menu, I found this awesome new protein pancake recipe to try.  Its from the Beachbody blog and we are pancake lovers in our house so I think I will give these a shot.  The not so great thing about regular pancakes is they are mostly flour and sugar so they won’t keep you full and energized for very...

  This is my Go-To Shakeology recipe and the one I use the most to get in all those healthy superfood ingredients.  You can use real peanut butter or other nut butters but I like using PB2 (powdered peanut butter) because its easier to add to shakes and is much lower in calories than the real thing but adds flavor and nice texture to my shakes.  Hope you...

Healthy Nachos

Admittedly, tortilla chips are a weakness of mine.  I can easily eat a half, ok a WHOLE bag by myself if I’m not paying attention.  Plus I love to make my homemade guacamole and well, it goes really well with chips obviously.  But the fried chips are loaded with fat, sodium and empty calories.  And typical restaurant nachos are generally heavy on cheese,...

Its summer and wow – its busy!  In my head, I thought I would have all this time to clean and organize the house and get projects done.  But now that its here, we are on the go  – going to the pool, vacations and trips, playing with friends and of course Eve’s gymnastics practice 3x a week!  I’m still hopeful that I might get my house...
