Zucchini Blender Muffins

Just when I think I’m out of blender muffin ideas I get another one! It was meant to be when we found zucchini on sale at Aldi too. These came out SO delicious and I couldn’t be more pleased. Seriously, if you haven’t tried blender muffins yet, you’re missing out! Now if you don’t haveContinue reading “Zucchini Blender Muffins”

Lemon Butter Chicken

Looking to vary your proteins up a little bit? I’m kind of in love with this lemon butter chicken! It’s amazing over rice or pasta with veggies. Fueling notes: Pre-workout: pair with 1/4, 1/3, or 1/2 plate of carbs (for a light, moderate, or hard day) 2-4 hours before your session Post workout: again pairContinue reading “Lemon Butter Chicken”

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Okay so I know it’s officially fall now but here in southern CT we’re still having some warm summer days—which means it still smoothie weather! Smoothies are a great way to get in some fruit as well as a bunch of protein and calcium! This smoothie has one and a half servings of fruit, aroundContinue reading “Strawberry Banana Smoothie”

Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp

Fall is here! Which means we can finally wear long sleeves, enjoy bonfires, and bake all things apple and pumpkin. Actually I would bake apple and pumpkin things all year round but this summer was HOT and we hardly cooked or baked inside for at least a couple months! So you can imagine how especiallyContinue reading “Old-Fashioned Apple Crisp”

Easy Spinach, Onion & Cheddar Frittata

So we inherited five chickens (and a garden) with the house we closed on about two months ago! We named them Hen-Solo, Meg-hen, Henneth Paltrow, Dolly Part-hen, and Hei Hei (seriously so proud of myself). They’ve kinda become my favorite thing! Hei Hei is missing at least half her feathers since she’s at the bottomContinue reading “Easy Spinach, Onion & Cheddar Frittata”

Easy Beef Stroganoff

My dad is from Italy and my mom is from England so there are a lot of things I didn’t eat growing up (like chicken parm, most kinds of casseroles, and pasta dishes like beef stroganoff). It’s been super fun to explore new things so I’m always stoked about what we’re eating! Recipe notes: IfContinue reading “Easy Beef Stroganoff”

3-Ingredient Ice Cream Pie

I freakin love ice cream cakes! They’re a perfect mixture of ice cream, cake or cookies, and whatever else you feel like adding. I made this particular one for Zach’s 25th birthday a couple months back and it was SO simple and SO delicious. Both were a necessity since you can’t have an undelicious birthdayContinue reading “3-Ingredient Ice Cream Pie”

White Chocolate, Raisin & Oat Energy Bites

If I only had five minutes to do a little meal prep for the week I’d make energy bites! They are a balanced, satisfying snack packed with protein, complex carbs and fiber, and heart-healthy fats. These energy bites are literally the easiest to whip together, only dirty one bowl, and keep in the fridge forContinue reading “White Chocolate, Raisin & Oat Energy Bites”

Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One

Homemade salad dressing is the bomb. It’s wicked easy to make, cheap, and helps prevent plastic waste! AND most importantly it’s delicious. This is a single serving recipe but you can also make a larger batch and store it in the fridge. You can also try a thicker, higher protein version with Greek yogurt. ThisContinue reading “Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One”

Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips

We made an insane amount of pita chips for our wedding but I’ve never tried tortilla chips till today! These are so good and take just 10 minutes in the toaster oven and this recipe is for one tortilla but you can make as many as you’re hungry for. They can also either be sweetContinue reading “Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips”
