Green Mango Protein Smoothie

I have plenty of produce that needs to be eaten!  Why not make a smoothie out of it!

I NEVER buy junk food and always keep healthy snacks around.  That’s the best way to be consistent with our healthy lifestyle.  If I feel like having a cheat meal or snack then I have to cough up more $$ and go out to buy it.  That’s also a great way to resist the temptation of eating junk.

I always keep milled flaxseed in the pantry along with my protein.  It’s a great organic form of fiber.  Premium Gold Flaxseed is the only brand I purchase.  It is sold in bulk at Costco.

Most of my produce withe comes from local farmers markets or Sprouts Farmers Market.  The best quality produce we have found is at Sprouts.  Other local grocery stores carry produce that is either too ripe or not ripe enough. Costco has some great frozen organic fruits and veggie in bulk.  Costco carries Sunrise Growers organic fruits.  They also carry Cellucor products for at a bigger discount than any other store.

Twice Baked Stuffed Eggplant Boats

I was walking around Sprouts after a tough workout and my stomach was growling like crazy.  It is NEVER good to go to a grocery store on an empty stomach especially after working out.  I grabbed some eggplant, veggies, pasta sauce and headed out before buying the entire store.  One thing I did buy was nuts in the bulk section.  I was proud that I did not eat the whole bag in the car!

While drinking a protein shake I decided to experiment in the kitchen.  That experiment made a huge mess but was also a huge success! Below is the recipe for my Twice Baked Stuffed Eggplant Boats!  I am so excited to share this with you!

One of my favorite brands of pasta sauce that I used in the recipe is Muir Glen.  Luckily, the sauces were on sale for &1.99 at Sprouts so bought three jars!!!

Paleo Almond Flour Biscuits

Anyone that is very close to me knows that I am a huge sucker for biscuits! When it comes to weekend brunch, biscuits is all I want to eat!  My stomach is not in agreement with me so I have to limit myself and come up with alternatives.  The recipe below is one that I have experimented with for a bit.  I have a few others but those need some fixing…

In the recipe I used Carrington Farms coconut oil and Honeyville blanched almond flour.  Both were purchased at Costco.

These guilt free biscuits are delicious! They do not rise as much as regular flour biscuits, are not as flaky and are a bit dense.  One is a perfect serving for someone like me!

Try the recipe and let me know what you think! Please share, comment and follow my blog.

Cheers!
