Eating healthy (or maintaining the 75/25 or 80/20 rule) plays a large part in getting into shape and living a healthy life.  Here I’ll share some of my favorite recipes, plus some that use to not be so healthy, but I’ve tweaked the ingredient list to make them a little healthier.


Breakfast Recipes

Everyone will tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it is.  I just happen not to really be a breakfast person (and when I do eat breakfast it is usually outside the 90 minute window of getting up; especially on the weekend).

How do I make sure that I get a good nutritious breakfast in?  I usually have a breakfast shake.  You can find all sorts of protein powders on the market these days, and I’m sure they work–but the one I use is Shakeology from beachbody.  It comes in several different flavors (both vegan and traditional) and either as packets or as a bag (packets last 24 days, while the bag lasts 30 days). My favorite flavors are the chocolate, vanilla, and caffe latte.

Vanilla Caramel Cafe Latte Shakeology

1 scoop cafe latte shakeology

1 scoop focus energy boost (optional)

1 scoop digestive heath boost (optional)

1 serving of fruit (during the summer I like to use cherries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries–usually about 6-10 pieces of fruit gives around (or under) 100 calories)

1 Tbsp plain greek yogurt (optional–I add it so I have a little extra protein)

1 Tbsp all natural peanut butter (optional–I add it because I love peanut butter)

1 cup chilled vanilla caramel black tea

1/2 cup crushed ice.

Blend and enjoy a breakfast shake that is around 500 calories, filling, and sweet.
