Instagram Meals

I'm a creature of habit and eat a LOT of the same food day in and day out - it's not fancy or based off of any "real" recipe but it's good nonetheless. I get a lot of requests for the recipes for several of these meals so I thought I would put together a little post with my recipe templates. Let's just call them "instagram meals". 20130502-141148.jpg

Designer Whey protein cookie dough bites!The recipe is on instagram but I figured I'd post it here for easy reference.

1. Combine 2 scoops vanilla protein powder with 2 tbsp of nut or seed butter, 1 tbsp coconut flour, 3 tbsp coconut milk (or almond milk), splash of vanilla extract, pinch of cinnamon and salt, and some dairy-free chocolate chips.

2. Form into small balls and place on baking sheet or plate and freeze.



Easy one-skillet dinner.

1. Sear chicken breast (or other meat) in a skillet with some bacon fat (dooo it).

2. Add some onions, herbs (sage), veggies (cauliflower & zucchini here). Saute it around a bit.

3. Add some diced tomatoes, cover, and cook until done.


One of my absolute favorites - Meatza! (There are some great recipes/idea from Melissa's book Well Fed and on her blog!)

1. Mix up a bunch of meat (I like a beef, sausage mixture), add some herbs/spices, press into round pans (2lbs of meat usually makes 2 pans), bake at 400F until cooked.

2. Top with whatever you like - I like tomato sauce, spinach, onions, and quail eggs!

3. Bake again for a few minutes until toppings are hot/cooked through.


One of my favorite lunches - salmon or tuna cakes!

1. Mix up some canned tuna or salmon with one egg, some garlic powder, onions, and any other veggies you want.

2. Sprinkle about 1 tbsp coconut flour over the mixture and mix up. Add more coconut flour if too liquid-y until you can form patties.

3. Cook in coconut oil in hot skillet.
