"Me Pretty" Mac & Cheese

"Me Pretty" Mac & Cheese

Many of my favorite healthy and tasty recipes are inspired by my clients. I love it when they take our nutrition coaching ideas into the kitchen and dream up new, fun ways to eat clean. This one is a winner from my rock star client Geoff. In addition to having the best animated Elmo gifs he also has the best reinvention of this classic comfort food that I call "Me Pretty" Mac & Cheese.

Try This Sonoma Style Chicken Salad Recipe to Boost Your Protein

Try This Sonoma Style Chicken Salad Recipe to Boost Your Protein

This is a new twist on my old curry chicken salad recipe and it's a favorite of mine and several of my clients. It's easy to prep for the entire week and is a great way to get in protein and healthy fat. I used walnuts and grapes in this version but you can also use almonds and apples. It's great on its own, as a topper to a salad or in a wrap as shown here. At 300 calories it packs 40g of protein and only 7 carbs per serving. Give it a try; you won't be disappointed.

Simple, Delicious Salmon in 20 Minutes

When people see me pull homemade salmon with jasmine rice and stir fried vegetables out of my lululemon lunch bag in the middle of a busy weekday they think 1. I must be fancy AF and/or 2. I must spend hours each night meal-prepping instead of binge watching Broad City. Neither are true. Here is a simple and awesome game plan for prepping up to four salmon fillets in about 20 minutes and bonus, it won't stink up your house.

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Meatloaf has a bad reputation. Granted, the name "meatloaf" is kind of funky. But in my house, meatloaf is a weekly favorite. It's high in lean protein, low in saturated fat and very easy to make. It's perfect for dinners at home or lunches on the go. It lasts for several days in the fridge and can also be frozen. And it's f*cking delicious. Heat this up at work and your coworkers will drool over your shoulder while asking what smells so good. You'll be like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, But with meat. Settle down there, vegetarians. Sub the meat for tofu and the recipe still totally works.

Challenge accepted! Try this low carb, high protein and healthy fat spin on a comfort food favorite.
