There is an overwhelming number of protein bars on the market to choose from. A number of these protein bars are not much different than chocolate bars, while there are a few that really are great choices.
Some weeks, I’m definitely more of a lazy meal prepper. This week was one of them!
I decided that I wanted to challenge myself to see how many meals I could make with the least ingredients possible – so here you are!
I used a buffet-style meal prep approach (more on that here) to put these meals together.
This week I only used the following in my meals:
I had a feeling something was off when my exercise tolerance started to decrease and my nails became increasingly brittle and fragile. I had just become a plant-based eater.
My close friend had been experiencing restless leg syndrome and chronic fatigue for close to a year before she got diagnosed with Celiac Disease.
We both received a diagnosis of iron deficiency.
Plant-Based and Paleo eating patterns are taking the world by storm and are arguably the most popular diets/ eating patterns right now. What is ironic, is that these two diets differ widely in their recommendations. There are strong advocates for each diet – so which is the best one to follow? Let’s explore.
Confession – I’ve made this soup for the past 3 weeks. I just can’t get enough! I’ve always gravitated towards pureed soups (let’s be honest – probably since they’re so forgiving and idiot-proof!) however my boyfriend was requesting a heartier, chunky soup. He has a fear of being full…and the pureed soups weren’t cutting it!
I’ve come to accept that (for the most part) ain’t nobody got time to make eggs in the morning. What other high protein breakfast options are there? Greek yogurt…this is great but it can get old. Okay…chia seed pudding? Also great but unless it’s smothered in nuts, it’s not really too high in protein. Eggs? Oh wait, we’re too busy for eggs.
