Eating on the go is definitely not ideal, as we should be relaxed while we are eating in order to properly digestion our food. But, life happens and sometimes this is the only way to get our fuel in. I included almond milk yogurt to…

“Peanut Butter” Protein Shake (peanut-free)

  Do you suffer from peanut allergies? Let sunbutter come to your rescue! Sunbutter doesn’t taste exactly like peanut butter, but it’s a really great substitute. Peanut butter shakes are so creamy and delicious, which inspired me to make this one made with sunbutter. I have an obsession with the TV show Friends- like serious obsession.

  Who loves ice cream?? Me! Me! Me! Okay, this isn’t really ice cream, but it sure does remind me of ice cream and I put it in an ice cream cup- so let’s just call this protein-packed ice cream.

I’m also feeling better about myself after I had gained weight last summer/winter. My weight has always been up and down, but whenever I gain weight I really feel sad about it. While my focus is mainly on health rather than on weight loss, I do feel better about myself when…

Strawberry Strudel Protein Shakes

I started working out with a personal trainer about two months ago and he is kicking my ass! His workouts are super tough and I am LOVING it! I decided to try drinking protein shakes so I can help rebuild/repair my muscles after all the heavy lifting. After looking into different protein powders- egg white protein, beef protein, & whey protein, I decided grass-fed whey protein was the way to go. I normally avoid dairy as much as possible (I’ll indulge…
