7 Healthy & Delicious Recipes
1. Oatmeal banana cookies: This recipe makes 6 servings. To start, mix 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (or flavor of your choice) with 2 cups of mashed bananas, 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2/3 of a cup of oats, and 4 tablespoons of water. Then pour that mixture into a baking dish and bake at 325 for 30 minutes. And voila! You have yourself some scrumptious snacks without the guilt.
2. Cauliflower “Fried” Rice: Spray oil in a pan and add a frozen bag of riced cauliflower with peas and carrots (Bird’s Eye, Green Giant, Trader Joe’s). Cook the veggies (covered) for 5–10 minutes. Move the veggies over to make an open spot in the pan, and add 5 raw eggs. Let the raw eggs and cauliflower sit in the pan for 5 minutes without touching it. Then add 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and sliced scallions, if you’d like, and then mix everything together.
3. Baked Parmesan Zucchini Chips: Thinly slice 2 zucchinis and coat the slices with olive oil. Sprinkle the slices with garlic, salt, pepper, and grated parmesan cheese. Place the slices on a baking sheet and bake them at 425 degrees for 30 min.
4. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oatmeal: Already excited for this one, aren’t you?! Start by mixing a half cup of old-fashioned rolled oats with 3/4 of a cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and then microwave that mixture for 2 minutes. Then, stir in half a scoop of chocolate protein powder and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter before digging in!
5. Apple chips: Cut an apple into very thin slices and then line them on a baking sheet lines with parchment paper. Be sure to arrange them in single layers. Then, sprinkle the slices with apple pie spice or cinnamon before baking for 50 minutes. Flip them and then bake for another 50 minutes, or until the chips are crispy.
6. Cauliflower “Mac and Cheese”: Yum! Cut off the head of a cauliflower and chop it into bite-size pieces (or buy cauliflower florets in a bag). Boil the pieces for 5 minutes (or microwave a steamer bag of cauliflower). Drain the veggies and place them in bowl with 2 tablespoons of butter (preferable from a tub, made with canola/olive oil like Smart Balance/Earth Balance), half a cup of coarsely-grated Parmesan, 1 cup of low fat cottage/ricotta cheese, salt and pepper. Top it with half a cup of a low-fat grated cheese blend, and then bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes.
7. Pumpkin Pie Dessert: This is a great dessert but can also be eaten for breakfast. Yes, you read that right! Simply mix 3 tablespoons of pumpkin puree with 3⁄4 of a cup of greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon of Stevia. To top it off, sprinkle with high fiber granola. You can even layer it in a mason jar, see below, to dress it up a bit. Enjoy!
