Body Beast – Turkey Power Meatloaf

13 Nov

Another YUMMY recipe for you guys!!

My hubby started the BODY BEAST workout on Sunday!  Its one of Beachbody’s NEWEST additions to their line of amazing at home fitness programs!  I am excited to do it myself sometime post-pregnancy 🙂

Anyways – once he committed to doing the program he decided he wanted to do it FULL OUT 100% by the book!  That meant NUTRITION – meal plan and all!  He made me laugh the other day with his quote, “Insanity + Oreos does not equal abs”  🙂  So true!  He’s always kind of maintained a consistent weight, but he’s never gotten the amazing infomercial quality results he’s been after because he hasn’t committed to the nutrition aspect.

 

Anyways – I have been working hard to pack his lunches and plan his meals according to the BEAST nutrition guide!  Luckily it came with a TON of really delicious recipes in the book!  Last night I made the Turkey Power Meatloaf.  It was AWESOME!  I almost had a second serving myself!

Here is the recipe – notice there is NO CHEESE!!  I was nervous that it was not going to be moist enough, but it was still excellent!  Try it for yourself and let me know what you think!

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Oatmeal

10 Sep

Oatmeal is one of my FAVORITE things to eat for breakfast!  Its quick, easy, cheap and filling… oh, and very nutrient dense.

I make it several ways – cinnamon raisin, diced apples, blueberry, etc… but my super FAVE is my PB Banana Protein Oatmeal.  TRY it sometime!

  • 1/2  cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup water + a little more
  • 1 Tbsp all natural peanut butter (or PB2)
  • 3/4 scoop of banana protein powder (I use Gaspari’s Myofusion)
  1. Add oats into a microwave safe bowl and pour the water on top.  Use 1 full cup and then a few dashes more so that your oats come out a smidge liquidy
  2. Microwave for 90 seconds.
  3. Stir in PB and banana protein powder

Its THAT easy and quick!  Then you have a great meal to start your day – giving your body complex carbs and protein to get your metabolism going.  Oh yeah, and drink a big glass of water with that too!!

I’d love to hear your favorite oatmeal recipes…. especially any pumpkin ones if you have them!!  Comment below!  Also, be sure to let me know if you end up trying THIS recipe and let me know what you think 🙂
