It’s weekend time!
I originally thought that pic was cute, but now that I closer at it, this is girl is pretty creepy looking. Oh well, it’s the weekend and I’m happy. 😀
I hope you all are doing fantastic on this beautiful day! Lately my life has been comprised of running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off, leaving me very little time to blog. I have written 5 papers this week. I knocked out a 6-pager this morning. I have 2 more to do tomorrow. I’m not bragging; in fact I would much rather this not be true. But it is in fact the very truth. 2 regular weeks left until finals week and I guess you could say it’s crunch time? Ay yi yi….Ref, can I get a time out?!
But even with all the typing and computer time I have had to devote to school work, you know I couldn’t be away from the blog for too long! I have a few recipes that I’ve been promising to talk about, and the time has come!
- 1/2 an avocado
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 cup of cottage cheese/greek yogurt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 cup water
- 1 scoop Incredible Greens
- 1 scoop Mrm veggie protein powder, vanilla
- handful spinach
- ice, stevia, thickening gums
If you haven’t tried avocado in a shake, you are missing out. Avocado = creamy goodness. Plus the healthy fats ensure that all the nutrients in your shake will be absorbed. #winning. I love this combo!!!
Baked Spinach Mozzarella Quiche
- 4 cups total of eggs/egg substitute—>I did a mixture of both
- several large handfuls torn spinach
- 1 cup fresh grated mozzarella cheese
- chopped green onions
- seasonings—>I used garlic, onion, mrs dash, black pepper, chili powder, and a teensy bit of seasoned salt on top
Simply combine everything in a baking dish and cook for at 350* for around 25-30 minutes (depending on oven) until set and lightly browned on top.
Egg dishes are awesome for weekly food prep because they are so EASY. Plus you can literally have a fresh new flavor combination every single week. Endless combinations = never boredom eating.

Single Serve Protein-Filled Cheesecakes (original recipe here)
This fun baking project was actually from the bodybuilding.com forum, which I slightly adapted and I am very happy with how they turned out! You can make one big cheesecake with this recipe as well, but I realized that I was lacking in baking pans so I decided to make these single servings. This is something that blew up on the forums, with many people adding in their own variations and flavor combos. I recommend checking it out!
- 12 oz cream cheese—>I used fat free
- 10 oz plain greek yogurt
- 1 egg, 2 egg whites
- 1/4 cup stevia baking blend
- 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 1/4 serving vanilla protein powder—>I use and recommend Truscience vanilla caseinator
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- dash of sea salt
I baked these at 325* for about 45 minutes. You can get more precise recipe direction on the original page.
Mine were delicious, but they didn’t look nearly as good as some of the other bodybuilding.com people’s. Check out some of their creations:

I ❤ Cheesecake!!!! It’s hard to imagine something that good and decadent can actually be healthy, huh? I’m a fan. 😀
Okay, time to unwind and get away from from the computer for a bit! Have a great weekend everyone!
