Meal Prep Sunday

beef stir fry 003

Hello all my fellow Weight Watcher followers! I thought I'd start a new series post called Meal Prep Sunday. I'll break down the points for what I have for each meal of the day (more like 4 days a week) and share the recipes. For this weeks meal, I spent a total of around $40.00 for groceries. I'm getting pretty dang tired of having to go to the grocery store every other day to get ingredients for recipes and I'm spending way too much money on food. This is going to help me in the long run, and ...

Low Carb Onion Rings

low carb onion rings 010

I've had this huge bag of coconut flour sitting in my pantry for what seems like forever. Got a huge bag of it at Sam's Club.  Finally getting around to trying out some recipes with it. Coconut flour is a great subsitute for regular flour when trying to eat low carb. That and almond flour. It's great for coating food like onions or other vegetables. The Big Game is coming up soon, and if you have any friends or relatives that are on low carb diets these would be great to make for them. ...

Caramel Rice Krispies Bars and Star Wars

caramel crispy treats 014

  I really do apologize about this post. I've been doing really well trying to post healthy recipes but I just had to make these.  Regular rice krispy treats are ok, but have you ever had the ones with caramel in the middle? My brother's wife really likes rice krispy treats and I had told her about this recipe.  She said that I must bring them this weekend, so that is what I did. It was a crazy weekend and super busy! My family went to Star Wars this weekend!  I remember when I was lit ...

Mmmm Salmon, I could have this fish for  every night of the week with a different flavor or vegetable and not get bored. The best part about this meal: one pan! That's it.

This recipe will probably end up on your weekly menu rotation. Have you ever had roasted broccoli before? It's delicious. The sides get super crispy almost like k ...

Mini Kale Fritattas with Pepperoni

I've been on a kale kick lately. Yesterday, I purchased 2 bunches of kale to make smoothies with. I know what you're thinking... ewwww kale?! Gross. But, with pepperonis and parmesan cheese, kale is REALLY good. It's also good in smoothies and every now and then I'll go over to Juice It and get my energy boost from one of their greeen juices. Eggs with kale is also delicious and if you've never tried kale before, now would be the time! It is New Years after all, and  everyone is trying to ...

Strawberry Coconut Truffles

slow cooker meat sauce 019

  This recipe I saw on Facebook. Have you ever gone to Tip Hero's facebook page and watched any of there videos? Wow, are they addicting. Anyways... What intrigued me most about the recipe was the coconut butter. You can make your own coconut butter from stratch and all you need is coconut flakes and a food processor.  It's pretty much the same way you would make peanut butter and the coconut flakes eventually turn into coconut butter. Is your mind blown? Mine was, when I watched that video. I ...

Slow Cooker Bolognese Sauce

slow cooker meat sauce 002

When I want a hearty spaghetti meat sauce, I usually use my Mom's recipe that she would give us when my brother and I were kids. She was nice enough and left out the olives. Her sauce had ground beef, tomato sauce, seasonings, and a little bit of onion. This Bolognese sauce is different and a little bit on the fancier side. Add in some wine (you can sub chicken broth), bacon, and a little heavy cream to the sauce and it will make your typical everyday spaghetti meat sauce taste 100% times b ...
