Back at it again w/ the OG post-workout breakfast combo!!😻 Even on low-carb days, my breakfast always includes some kind of grain or starch. Breakfast is SO important, y’all, ESPECIALLY if it’s post-workout/fasted cardio. Not only is breakfast itself important, but it’s important to be full of whole, nutrient dense foods (meaning not processed). Breakfast is always my meal highest in calories and normally includes more carbs than my other meals I have throughout the day. I also make sure it’s high in protein and fiber and includes some healthy fats. On low-carb days, like today, I include more healthy fats than usual.😋 •
#whatsinmybowl 👉🏼 55g grits, 2 scoops of @betterbodyfoods Organic Plant Protein, 2 eggs/90g egg white scramble (cooked in coconut oil), 2 Tbs PB2, all seasoned with stevia, cinnamon, and a dash of salt.
Also, just wanted to add that yes, this is a high-calorie meal; however, it’s about WHERE those calories come from. Do not fear calories, y’all!! Your body NEEDS them in order to function, especially if you’re training hard throughout the week. FUEL your body, and fuel it WELL.💛 Hope y’all have a great Thursday!😊
@pb2foods peanut butter powder and corn cakes. I absolutely LOVE peanut butter but you don't get a lot of bang for your buck. But for 24g of peanut butter powder made up with water is only 90cals 10c/3f/10p. Yes it's a bit higher in carbs than normal peanut butter but almost half the fat and double the protein! I'm gonna be adding this stuff to everything! It's probably not to everyone's taste but on the corn cakes it tastes 🔥🔥. Still got the other half to enjoy before leaving for the gym. As my pal @muzzamay says "it's all about the snacks"!!! #peanutbutter#pb2#pbpowder#snacktime#countingmacros#eatforthebodyyouwantnotthebodyyouhave#focused#doyou#dontletanyonetakeyourshine

After starting my day with a glass of water & an omega-3 supplement, Iv recently started fueling up with home made protein smoothies 😍💦 A typical breakfast shake will include 'cold brew coffee, chocolate protein, unsweetened almond milk, raw oats, a tbsp of chia seeds, a tbsp of peanut butter & ice. 👌 While this might sound like an odd assortment of ingredients, the balanced mix off caffeine, healthy fats, protein & complex carbs, makes for the perfect morning fuel, ensuring I am able to put forth full effort required for my active day to day lifestyle. If you aren't fuelled, your workouts just wont be where they should be! 👌 Fuel your body for performance. Plenty more smoothie options to come, keep an eye out. ☝️

It’s hump day!!👌🏻 Today is also my last day of undergraduate classes ever😳 Anddd tomorrow I’m picking up my cap and gown🎓 Graduation is so close!.
Here’s a pic of my lunch from the other day since today has been so hectic and I haven’t had time for pretty food 😂
Easy, tasty meal prep! I made this for #tacotuesday and am having it for lunch today. I used PB2 to make a peanut butter sauce (mixed with broccoli slaw, tomatoes, and corn) to put on tacos. I realize that I don't do a great job with explaining recipes. The reason is that I don't follow any or really pay attention to what I'm doing. Cooking has started to come very naturally (baking is another story) and I just toss things in until it tastes good to me and what tastes good to me, may not taste good to you. Adam always tells me I make things too spicy (he isn't wrong). It's preference. With that said, I think the things I share are easy in the sense that you really can't mess it up. That's my favorite part about cooking. There is room for creativity and personal preference. So, for my peanut butter sauce I put my vegetables in a pan and added water and PB2, garlic powder, salt, pepper, soy sauce, white pepper, chili powder, sugar free honey, and truvia. However, if you look up PB2 sauces, there's recipes to follow that may be more helpful and easier for you. :) Use my meals as guidelines to make your own creations and don't be afraid to play around. I guarantee you'll surprise yourself. 😳😊 #mealprep#pb2#peanutbuttersauce#taco#tacotuesday#tacolover#easymeals#easymealprep#dinner#lunch#fittacos
PROTEIN F R O S T YYYYYY! Swipe ⏮ for the ingredients and macros!!! I have been drinking my protein packed green smoothie since January but just discovered the latest trick (thanks YouTube) you have to add just a dash (1g) of the pudding mix and then you blend it on LOW setting for at least 1 minute. I brew my coffee (8oz) the night before and stick in fridge so it’s cold for the drink and add 6 (yes exactly 6) ice cubes to the cup and blend on LOW! YUMMMM it is literally a large frosty. Mmmm. #protein#greens#macros#breakfast#frosty#jello#pudding#pb2#health#wellness#yum#everyday#trick#thebest

I had a maaaajor sweet tooth this morning so these meal prepped pancakes inspired by @sara.haven were just what I needed!🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻
HEALTHY BANANA PEANUT BUTTER PANCAKES:
1/4 c coconut flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp nut butter (I used Natural Peanut Butter)
2 eggs slightly beaten
1 egg white beaten stiff (makes them super fluffy)
1/2 tbsp honey (or maple syrup)
3 tbsp smashed banana
1/4 c almond milk
Combine the first two ingredients (dry ingredients) in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, stir nut butter, eggs, honey (or maple syrup), and banana. Slowly stir in almond milk. Add dry ingredients to wet, stir until well combined, then let batter sit for a few minutes. Cook like normal pancakes (I cooked mine in vanilla ghee🤤)
Toppings: half sliced banana + 2tbsp PB2 mixed w/ 1 1/2 tbsp almond milk + drizzle of honey
This makes about 6 pancakes so I store them in the freezer and pop them in the microwave/toaster when I need them! So easy!
Elvis style waffle this morning following @wwpounddropper recipe which I think I've mastered now! I cut water down to 1/8C and there was no overflow and waffle is perfect! #2smartpoints
1sp - @devotionnutrition angel food protein powder
1sp - peanut butter syrup made by mixing 2T sugar free syrup with 2T PB2
0sp - maple bacon flex flavor, 13 Lily's dark chocolate chips, banana, and coffee
Drool worthy #pancakes 🥞🤤 I am a creature of habit and once I create a recipe I love, I obsess over it and don’t make new recipes as I am too nervous to be disappointed 😔. However, I got a bee in my bonnet when I bought the @tryabouttime #vegan#protein#brownie mix. So I decided to create a new recipe using the mix but adding extra goodies and more protein👊🏼. 🌟Recipe:
1/4 cup @tryabouttime vegan protein brownie mix
1 scoop @nutritechfit vegan chocolate protein powder
1 tbsp #coconut flour
1/3 cup #almond milk 🥛
1/4 tsp GF Baking powder
#Stevia drops, pinch of salt.
I usually add cinnamon but the brownie mix was loaded with it so didn’t need more.
Blend in a blender and then add #blueberries and mix in with a spoon.
Cook on a heated pan with coconut oil spray, flipping when bubbles form.
Topped with my usual #chocolate#pb2 ,coconut #butter and more blueberries.
10/10 for sure 👌🏼🎉😊
So these aren’t perfect looking, but they sure taste amazing.😍😍
•No Bake German Chocolate Balls•
1 rounded scoop Level-1 German Chocolate Cake
1.5 cup rolled oats (you could use 1 cup probably)
1/2 cup powdered PB (I mixed it together with equal amount of water before adding it to the mix, you don’t want it too runny)
1-2tbs unsweetened cocoa
1/3 cup almond milk
Drizzle of 🍯 honey 🍯.
Super easy, mix dry ingredients together, add the PB and drizzle of honey, then finish with adding almond milk. They may seem a little runny, but I stuck them in the freezer for 10 mins, took them out and ate two, then switched them to the fridge 😂 the texture was perfect. Just like a no bake cookie and such a satisfying taste😍😍.
Macros per ball (I made 10, pictured is 9 cause I ate one🤷🏼♀️): 1.9F, 10g net carb, 6.5P= 83.1 calories per ball. I did round up on the macros (example: 6.45p was rounded to 6.5).
Holy cow this dessert was amazing. I can't believe it took me THIS long to try @lilbuffprotein brownie recipe from her site. It was chocolaty, fudgy and just perfect!
I topped 1/2 warm brownie serving(3sp) with PB2(1sp) and 1C @eatenlightened peanut butter chip(7sp) #11smartpoints
