Ok, People, here’s the deal.
I initially planned to do the recipe/food thing once a week (if by initially planned you mean I decided to do it and MizFit struggles with an inability to let chickenbus go once she commences—which I do).
As we’ve clearly established Im not the one to whom friends and family turn for recipes.
Sure, I could just cut & paste or link to cooking light recipes Ive never made but first of all that’s not how I roll & second I think we all know how to do *that*
shit googling on our own.
So here’s the new plan: I’m going to give you recipes of things I consume.
Foodstuffs you most likely would NOT ponder trying without some MizFitcouragement.
(And if the Food G-ds decide to bless us with another guest chef volunteer like the amazing Trace? I’d never say no!)
Push up your sleeves, place your excuses on the shelves, and open your minds.
I give you:
Oatmeal Protein Shake MizFitravaganza
½ cup dry oatmeal which has been cooked and allowed to cool
2 scoops vanilla protein (I tend to use this. just read the label. we want the FEWEST carbs possible per serving.)
2 tablespoons chopped almonds (or flax seeds or peanut butter–preferably natural)
12 oz. water or skim milk
Directions: Blend in blender. Consume. Smile. Feel great, strong, energized & vibrant.
This next one mightcould tide you over until the You Bar people decide to toss some Friday freebies our way (I ordered my box and will let you know when they arrive).
No Bake Protein Bar
5 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 cup dry oats
6 scoops chocolate whey protein (around 130 grams protein/info should be on label. again, any brand just fewest carbs possible)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons flax seeds
1 cup non-fat dry milk
1/2-1 cup water (this seems to vary depending on the brand of protein powder. I dont usually measure out the powder so I compensate with more/less water)
Spray an 8×8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add peanut butter. The mixture will be crumbly and dry now.
Add water & vanilla.
Mix until a sticky dough forms. Spread into pan using a spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate a few hours and cut into 9 squares. Wrap bars individually (sandwich bags/plastic wrap) or store in covered container between sheets of wax paper. Keep refrigerated.
(if you were the creator of these recipes back in the DAY feel free to out yerself. Ive had them for so long and changed so much I have NO IDEA from whence they originated.)
