June 7, 2018

WHITE BEAN CHICKEN CHILI — SUMMER EDITION! Okay loves, I’m back at it with the instant pot and still working on my goal of finding quick, easy, and healthy recipes. Today I’ve got a super yummy one for you from Eat.Drink.Love! This is one of those meals that takes you five minutes to get everything put in the instant pot and voila! in under one hour your dinner is ready!

Now I know what you might be thinking “chili… isn’t that a winter dish?” but today we’re breaking rules and eating chili in the offseason because we can! Also because this chili is totally fit for the summer because of its broth-base. It is light and fresh and doesn’t leave you feeling overwhelmingly full but rather sufficiently satisfied, perfect for the summer months. This chili is truly the best and easiest summer recipe that everyone in your fam will love, including the kids!

May 10, 2018

PULLED PORK TACOS!! I love this meal so much. It’s one of those dinners that doesn’t take too much effort but it tastes like you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all day! It took 35 minutes from start to finish and while the meat was cooking in the instant pot, I was prepping the salsa and rice. I’ve had my instant pot for over a year and have just recently started using it. My goal is to find realistic dinners for my family that are not only quick and easy, but healthy. If it’s okay with you, I’m gonna start sharing our very favorites with you! I came upon this Pulled Pork Tacos recipe from The Organic Kitchen awhile ago and I gotta tell ya — we are in love!

HOW TO MAKE PROTEIN WAFFLES!!!!! Oh man, can I just say that these babies have single handedly kept me on plan with my macros? I’ve been craving sweets somethin’ fierce lately and before binging on an entire batch of cookies, I thought I’d give this recipe my sister told me about a try. I’m not sure where it came from or who invented it but they’re stupid easy to make and each waffle has 3 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbs and 21 grams of protein. Not to bad, eh?!

Now you don’t need to load yours with strawberries and low-fat whipped cream like I do. I have more carbs than fat in my macros so I’ve nixed the butter and syrup and opted for a tiny bit of jam, strawberries and 20 grams of low fat whipped cream. These are delicious though with peanut butter and bananas on them or maybe you’d rather some lite syrup with eggs and bacon. However you choose to eat your waffle is up to you, what’s important is that you know how to make them and store them so when those cravings hit you’re covered with something delish.

Here’s what you’re gonna need…
