Guilt Free Guacamole

I’ve recently started liking guacamole, but I still don’t like avocados. Makes sense right? I always eat this with my Guilt Free Nachos; it’s so delicious and a great source of healthy fat. Ingredients: 2 Avocados ¼ Cup salsa 1 ½ TBS Lime Juice Salt to taste, we use a lot of salt ½ Cup onions […]

Weekly Workouts 2/19-2/25

This weeks workout was a little different for me because I took last Sunday off. To stay on track with my program I had to fit in my last lift from the prior week, and all five workouts of my current week. That means that I squatted 4 TIMES this week #woof. Luckily for me […]

Valentine’s in the Big Apple

My trip to NYC started a little rocky as I realized I forgot my license at home. Luckily my dad was driving me, and my sister was able to bring my ID (thanks dad and Kris!). Luckily I made it to my gate right as my plane was boarding. I’ve never missed a flight and didn’t want […]

Pinterest Banana Bread

I saw recipes on Pinterest for pancakes with only two ingredients: eggs and a banana. I ended up tweaking the recipe a little to make it a banana bread instead of pancake. The pancake was really hard to flip because the batter was so thin. Ingredients: 1 Banana 2 Eggs 1/4 Tsp Vanilla 1/2 Tsp […]

Weekly Workouts 2/5-2/11

This weeks workouts felt really good, which means next week the weights will increase. I like my current workout program because it allows me to get comfortable with a weight before I increase it. Eventually I’ll be able to reach all of my goal maxes, but until then I have to hold the vision and trust the […]

Guilt-Free Post Workout Smoothie

I don’t know about you guys, but I’m at the point of hanger after my workouts. At work I make my oats ASAP, but when I’m home I always make this smoothie. It’s so easy to make and contains plenty of protein and carbs. This smoothie is perfect post workout because: Whey protein is a […]

Pizza used to be a weekly occurrence for me until I realized how unhealthy it can be. However, this recipe is protein packed and guilt free. Jon and I have this whenever we are together and not eating Guilt Free Nachos. *Full disclosure: Jon created this recipe* I had never tried Naan bread before, but it makes […]
