Protein Bread

What do you do when you’ve run out of protein powder and you want something other than meat post workout?

You make protein bread!!!

This turned out to be a happy surprise- I didn’t really know what the result would be, but it was definitely a winner!

Grain Free Apple Cinnamon Yeast Bread

Hello out there! I’m super excited to get back to recipe making and blogging! I’ve been trying not to go too crazy but there are just so many things I want to try!! applebread (22 of 27)

One thing I really miss is yeasty bread. Make it crusty, seedy, yeasty bread and you really got me! Alas, this isn’t your typical yeast bread, but you know what- it does taste delicious! I got the idea after seeing some recipes over on Foodie Fiasco– Kelly has some awesome stuff. But I’ve changed it up to make it single serving, and more suited to my macros. Continue reading

As you know, I LOVE kabocha. Love Love Love Love Love Love Love kabocha!!! Actually now, I get a discount at my local “Angel Home Mart”- just a random Korean grocery store on danhobak  단호박, as it’s called here. I told them it is my favourite, and because they like me, they say “special discount, only for you” 🙂 Continue reading

What is a healthy diet?

This is such a challenging subject it seems. And yet it isn’t. But what makes a healthy diet is still such an area of confusion to so many people. And even when you follow your version of a healthy diet- is it really that?

I thought I would share my thoughts on diet. As a person who has been very food focused for many years, I’ve definitely read a great deal, experimented a lot, and am still finding myself frustrated and confused.

However, right now, and since I hired my coach, I feel better than I have all year. Do I look better? Well I still don’t feel as lean as I like to, but my show is still 6 weeks away and slowly but surely I am getting there. Before I go into what I’m doing now, I’ll share some of the things I’ve tried. And keep in mind, that although these things have worked for weight loss, they haven’t been very good for health or performance. Continue reading

Salsa+Olive Stuffed Pollack

********At the time this post is published, I will be enjoying myself on holiday in Thailand! However, I wanted to give you something despite being away 🙂 *******

So remember a few weeks ago, when I said I wanted to incorporate more fish into my diet?_MG_0962

Well I have been! And I have to say that it really isn’t so scary after all to deal with fish heads-the more you handle them the less freaky. Continue reading

Sweet Potato Cookie-Blondies

_MG_0898Okay these aren’t real cookies, but I’ve been calling them cookies in my head for months now, so I’m going to continue to call them cookies. You have my permission to change the name or think otherwise. REGARDLESS, they are good. And cookie-like. Or maybe blondie-like. I don’t really know, I didn’t grow up eating blondies… yes okay cookie-blondie like. Aha! A much better name! Continue reading
