NO Guilt Chocolate and All Natural PB Mug Cake

My sweet tooth comes out once in a while and this health conscious mug cake is successful in shutting it up, haha.

I got the recipe from http://fitsuccess.blogspot.ca/2013/02/1-minute-chocolate-pb-protein-mug-cake.html and it has not disappointed.

The ingredients are:

– 1 scoop Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
– 1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
– 1 tsp Stevia
– 1/4 tsp Baking Soda
– Pinch of salt
– 1 Egg White
– 2 tbsp Unsweetened Almond Milk
– 1 tbsp All NATURAL Peanut Butter

Mix dry ingredients in a mug, then add wet ingredients, mix, microwave for one minute and DEVOUR!! 🙂

I heart Avocados

Chicken marinated in extra virgin olive oil, cayenne pepper, and BBQ spice, baked to perfection, 1/4 cup avocado, and 1/2 cup home made zucchini noodles mixed with bean sprouts and baby bok choy. A nutritious, protein packed lunch for people whose agendas never seem to have enough space to write down everything to-do, i.e. people like me. Yum!

Zucchini Noodles

Tonights kitchen adventure consisted of my first attempt at making zucchini noodles, and it was a success! I used a vegetable peeler to make the noodles themselves, heated up vegetable oil and minced garlic in a pan and split the zucchini noodles into separate batches, cooking each batch for under a minute so they didn’t get too soft. The end result was a healthy and delicious side dish to be paired with chicken, fish, or whatever other protein source you prefer. I will definitely be making these again. Meal prep for the week is crucial, and sunday nights are reserved for such prep. Tomorrow is the start of a new week. Eat clean, train dirty!!

Superfood Triple Berry Chia Pudding

I have been hearing about the great health benefits of chia seeds for a long time, but never tried any recipes involving them until I stumbled upon this pudding recipe online on one of my favourite clean eats blogs (www.skinnytaste.com). It was an instant success with the family. All I can say is I LOVE chia and this pudding is so easy to get creative with. This is so healthy as it is gluten-free, dairy-free, low sodium, low calorie, and vegan. 🙂
