Cinnamon Nutella Oatmeal Recipe

In our house, we have rediscovered Nutella. Rediscovered? Where did it go? Well, in the interest of healthy eating we don’t stock Nutella or similar addicting treats. However, recently we have found that, in moderation, we are able to have Nutella here and there. So now we have Nutella in the pantry and I want […]

Easy Protein Oatmeal

This year we have done two rounds of the Fast Metabolism eating program by Haylie Pomroy. I don’t like to call it a diet because the definition of diet is “a special course of food to which one restricts oneself, either to lose weight or for medical reasons.” We did this eating program to re-set […]

Sausage and Kale Brown Rice Pasta

Colorado has finally started to feel like fall. This means that the cubbies in the gym, which over the summer contain only keys, are now stuffed with coats and sweats.

Not the eating meat, beans, and other natural sources of protein train but the protein bars and especially the protein powder train. Being a female and […]

Healthy Turkey Burger Recipe: A Summertime Regular

Summertime grilling is my absolute favorite. The evening weather is nice and there is just something about cooking outside while the sun is still shining. Turkey burgers are a great option for the summer grilling season! Ground turkey is less expensive than chicken, still high in protein, and delicious paired with a summer salad. My issue […]

Weekend Breakfast: Egg Sandwich

As you can tell from our egg bake entry, we eat the same thing for breakfast every weekday morning: a slice of egg bake and a slice of whole wheat bread with sugar free jam. Eating the same thing for breakfast can be monotonous and boring BUT can you blame us? The egg bake is […]

5 Proteins We Love

As a female, my instinct whether eating a meal or completing a workout at the gym is NOT “I need protein!” Spencer on the other hand needs protein at every meal, tries to have protein as soon as possible after a workout, and calls protein the “lifeblood”. After we got married, we started going to […]
