French toast can be a healthy way to start your day! Try this microwave french toast in a mug, and have breakfast ready in minutes! I noticed something about myself… When I’m waiting for a skillet to heat up (making eggs, pancakes, or french toast), I graze! It’s completely mindless. By the time I start making breakfast, I’m pretty hungry, so I’ve caught myself ripping off a hunk of bread, getting a handful of cereal, or eating an extra banana. But knowing is half the battle, amiright? Using the microwave for a quick breakfast actually stops me from doing that! And […]

10 Kitchen Hacks to Stop Overeating

10 kitchen hacks to stop overeating 1

Simple changes in your own kitchen can support your desire to eat healthier, stop overeating and give you that feeling of control once again! I’d like to think I know when I’ve overeaten, or eaten too much food. But it’s not always obvious! With processed food and constant distraction, we usually don’t realize we have overeaten until we feel physically sick, or we gain weight. The mindless eating phenomenon was made popular by the researcher and author Brian Wansink, Ph.D with his research at Cornell University. This is the idea that you are overeating without even noticing or being conscious […]

These low carb, high protein, Cucumber Tuna Boats was the perfect change to my high protein lunch routine! It’s been awhile since I ate tuna, although I have plenty in my pantry.

Those tuna pouches seem to last forever! Tuna is kind of low on my list of my go-to protein food ideas, but I’m reconsidering bringing it up a […]

These delicious Italian mini stuffed bell peppers are made with the leanest ground beef to make them low in calories. I added Italian ingredients such as spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese for the perfect low calorie dinner! For the next 5 weeks I am being incredibly intentional about the time I’m spending in the kitchen. The more time I’m in the kitchen, the more food I graze on, mindlessly.

These quick, healthy banana chocolate chip pancakes have only 4 basic ingredients. Banana, oats, egg whites, and chocolate! They are deliciously low in calories, gluten free and a great way to start your day! For the majority of my life, I was a hard core, early morning breakfast eater. I’m an extremely early riser (4-5am most days), and I would head straight to the kitchen and eat. Usually something small like a yogurt, or banana and toast. I’d do some morning scripture study and then go for a run. However, about 5 years ago, I decided I wanted to try […]

I love this new twist on the classic chicken lettuce wraps! Most chicken lettuce wraps I’ve found are of the Asian flavor. This one is new and different with ground chicken, turkey bacon, mushrooms, avocado, and ranch! While I do love stuffing chicken salad inside a lettuce wrap, sometimes you just need something different. I had been thinking about a chicken bacon ranch sandwich, and thought of the lettuce instead of bread to put it together. That’s when I decided I wanted to use ground chicken and fully dive into the idea of a wrap! This wrap is simple, and […]

If you love peanut butter, but don’t feel like you can stick to just one serving, try freezing it! Frozen peanut butter can satisfy your craving and help you control your portions! I’m weak for peanut butter. I admit it. I can’t be trusted around a jar of peanut butter. If you give me a spoon, it would be pretty easy for me to eat 5000 calories in a few minutes flat. And that’s the problem with peanut butter! How many calories are in a serving of peanut butter? Most commercial jars of peanut butter are the same. 2 tablespoons […]

Egg ideas for breakfast thumb 1

Quick, healthy and tasty, low calorie egg ideas for breakfast! While I’ve been losing weight for my first bodybuilding show, I’ve been eating eggs every single morning for breakfast.

So, imagine my surprise when the grocery stores were OUT OF EGGS in Mid-March, when quarantine started!

I’ve been experiementing with different ways to make a lighter cream cheese filling for a healthy, low calorie cheesecake. I’ve actually had some pretty big fails.
