Coffee, Chocolate, Coconut Smoothie: under 200 Cals!

Ok, I’m kina a smoothie snob and I admit it…
But I’m only a snob because I see SO many “healthy” or “weight loss” smooth recipes that are anything but that!
Some smoothies can be packed with sugar, carbs, and little protein; not too mention any easy way to drink 300+ cals!
BUT I mean who doesn’t love a smoothie? 


So I made you an actually “healthy” recipe that is sure to wake you up and curve that sweet tooth!
I do have a couple of go-to smoothies that are my jam, and this one by far is my favorite!

2 tbs. gluten free oats 

2 tbs. unsweetened coconut flakes

1 tbs pb2 peanut butter powder

1/2 banana

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon chia seeds

1/2 cup ice

How to make it:

You’d think it’s impossible to mess up a smoothie, but trust, this girl has!
Start by brewing your coffee first and wait until it’s room temperature.
Then add all ingredients together, adding protein powder last to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the blender.
Blend for 12-30 seconds or until smoothie is at the texture you prefer.
And just like that, you’re out the door!


You don’t HAVE to make the ingredient modifications like almond milk and pb2 powder, but like I mentioned, you don’t want your shake getting too high in calories!

1 Pan Chicken Sausage Meal Prep

Searching for faster, better tasting, and easy meal prep makes me feel like Columbus…. only he found America way sooner than I came up with this recipe!
BUT I’m so excited how this recipe turned out because it’s something easy for me and new for the entire family! Yes, my toddler and husband are eating green things; fingers crossed!


There are so many variations you could do with this recipe but I wanted to try something different and add some low sodium chicken sausage and it will be a definite repeat at my casa!
1 Pan Chicken Sausage Meal Prep

(Recipe for 4-6 servings)


What you’ll need:

Cutting board and large kitchen knife

Foiled baking sheet

Medium mixing bowl
What’s in it:

1 cup shredded carrots

2 cups baby red potatoes 

1 small zucchini 

1 small yellow squash

1 red pepper

1 yellow pepper

3 cups broccoli heads and florets

16-20 oz. low sodium chicken sausage

1 cup grades Parmesan cheese 

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tbs dried thyme

1 teaspoon onion powder

1/3 cup coconut oil or olive oil

How to make it:

This is literally the best part; it’s so easy!
Slice vegetables into thin chunks and then slice chicken sausage into smaller chunks as well.
I suggest cutting the broccoli into very small pieces to make sure it cooks evenly with the other vegetables.
Once all vegetables are cut, spread them out evenly on a foiled baking sheet (yay! No mess!).
Next start by microwaving coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds or if you choose olive oil, just place the 1/2 cup in the bowl.
Add all spices to the oil and stir.
This is the most important part!

Make sure to add the oil and spices evenly onto vegetables and sausage.

You can do this by spreading with a brush or mixing with your hands.
Place sheet in a preheated oven at 400 degrees.
Let ingredients bake for 15 minutes, then using large tongs or spoon, flip vegetables and sausage and then continue to bake for 10-20 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.


If you’re looking for the meal to be a little more filling, try topping it off with 1/2 cup of brown rice or quinoa.

Carrot Cake Protein Balls: Best Pre Workout Snack Ever!

The most common question I get asked from clients about meals is, “What do I eat for a pre workout?”
Well kids, I went ahead and just made you a recipe!
Pre workouts snacks should be full of easily digested carbs (15% of your daily carb intake) and be paired with a protein and fat.
I LOVE these protein balls because I can make them in bulk and my little guy loves helping (and eating) them!
Super fast and minimal ingredients too!


Carrot Cake Protein Balls

(Recipe for 4-6 servings)
What you’ll need:

Large mixing bowl

Foiled baking sheet

Cheese grader or blender 
What’s in it:

1 tbs. coconut oil

2/3 cup peanut or almond butter

1/4 cup honey or agave

1 tbs. chia seeds

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1 cup finely shredded carrot

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 tbs cinnamon 

2 tbs protein powder (use MY PROTEIN here)

How to make it:

This is literally the best part; it’s so easy!
Start by microwaving coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds.
Grade carrots until very fine and shredded. I actually use my ninja blender too get it very fine.
Add all remaining ingredients together in 1 large mixing bowl- minus the coconut flakes.
Grab a small, palm size of mixture and roll into a ball. (I wet my hands slightly to help have less stick when I do this)
Once your all is formed, roll the ball on a flat surface in the coconut flakes and bam; you’re done!


Make sure to refrigerate and you can freeze the balls up to 2 months in the freezer.
I suggest 2-3 balls per serving to stay within pre workout calorie guidelines; but don’t judge; I had like 5 ok? 

Couldn’t help it, they were so good!
