Things I’m obsessed with lately:
Paleo Buffalo Chicken Meatloafs from PaleOMG. So simple and easy. I do not eat a paleo diet but I can appreciate a good recipe. The only real difference I noticed was that instead of bread crumbs or oatmeal, I used coconut flour. The first time I made them, I used Cholula.
The second time I made them, I used Franks Red Hot and The Laughing Cow Light Blue Cheese Wedges. The cheese is a must if you are not paleo. I cut the meatloaf muffin in half and smeared the cheese down the middle like butter on a muffin. So good.
I made sweet potato home fries using my favorite recipe of just evoo, salt, pepper and all spice. Seriously, the all spice is a magical ingredient. If you can’t tell, I’m trying to eat gluten free for the most part these days. It’s given me a stomach the past few times I’ve had it. Thanks to the Udi’s Gluten Free Community, the transition has been pretty easy. They have provided me with some great tips and recipes.
My avocado addiction is getting worse. I can put it on toast, in a smoothie, really anywhere. One of my favorite places to put it is with sautéed kale, seeds like pepitas and raisins. Simple and delicious. Avocado is loaded heart healthy fats and fiber. It also makes your skin look good!
Smoothies for breakfast are also my new jam. I’ve always enjoyed them but recently, they have taken over my protein pancake as my new go to morning meal. My friend told me that I had to try Amazing Meal and while at first I was like, this doesn’t taste very good, the nutrition info is crazy packed. It is raw, gluten free, vegan and made with no sugar added. For 90 calories, you get 10 g of protein, 6 g of fiber, probiotics, digestive enzymes and lots of leafy green vitamins. It really is superfood. I have found that I actually like the taste when I blend it with 1/2 banana, frozen mango chunks and almond milk. It’s a bit pricey at $2 serving from whole foods, but if you are trying to get more vitamins in your life from real sources, this is a great alternative. It is instantly energizing. I ran out of almond milk this week and have been making it with water and ice and it tastes just fine!
Mantras. I love them and can’t get enough of them lately when it comes to staying motivated to train and eat clean. Check out my top 31 favorite mantras as compiled by me from all of your suggestions! Check to see if yours made the list here.
