Guys, get your aprons—your next workout’s in the kitchen. You throw back protein like nobody’s business. Shakes, smoothies, anything to up those grams, right? But you don’t have to burn out your blender or go broke buying boxes of pre-wrapped snacks. It’s easy to make your own bars, and this way you know you’re getting “clean fuel” from real, whole food ingredients. Each one of these chewy, chocolaty babies brings home 22 grams of quality protein, thanks to wholesome ingredients and top-of-the-line whey powder.
These are a new twist on an old family favorite of mine. I love to bake cookies for the holidays and this organic, gluten-free version of a classic chewy holiday treat has all of the flavor and way less of the guilt.
This is a great cookie recipe to make with your kids and perfect for those all-too-popular cookie exchange parties. They are so delicious and moist (thanks to the coconut oil), no one will believe you when you tell them these cookies are gluten-free.
Is there anything cozier than baking during the holidays? The weather outside may be frightful, but inside it’s warm and wonderfully fragrant with cinnamon and chocolate.
Think that because you’re on a diet you can’t indulge in holiday baking? Oh yes you can, with this guide to smart swaps.
One evening at dinner, when my children were particularly whiny and ungrateful, as children have a tendency to do sometimes, I decided to have everyone in the family say what was their favorite part of the day. We went around the table, and if anyone slipped into a complaint or a comparison instead of putting forth a positive thought, they had to start over. And the favorite part of the day cannot involve something that could hurt another’s feelings, such as, “My favorite part of the day was when Sarah left,” because siblings are prone to this type of thing.
We’ve raised the bar—there’s just no topping these moist and chewy nutty pumpkin squares! Not cookies, not quite cake, they’re a satisfying grab-and-go snack or healthy dessert, packed with organic pumpkin, naturally sweet dates and crunchy almonds. Use gluten-free baking mix instead of flour for a healthy treat everyone can enjoy!
Muffins are a delicious way to start the day. The cooler weather is bringing them back into my kitchen. This version isn’t excessively sweet (in an effort to keep sugar cravings in check), but is full of flavor and filling with protein and fiber-rich ingredients.
These muffins are great for the holidays too — bring a basket-full to someone’s home for brunch or enjoy one on Sunday morning with your favorite cup of tea.
Crazy about chai? This wildly popular drink, made from black tea, milk and traditional Indian herbs and spices, is guzzled down by coffee-shop goers for its exotic, eye-opening flavor and irresistible creaminess. But a luscious latte isn’t the only way to enjoy it! In these mouth-watering muffins, an organic spiced chai protein shake is used to create moistness and kick up nutrition. Add raisins or diced apples for extra yum!
