Raspberry Waffle Protein Mini-Breakfast

20130724_214013

In a mad dash out the door this morning on the way to my hair appointment, I threw together this delicious waffle raspberry combo! I was so thankful that I made extra protein waffles last week and froze them!

Having some extra pre-prepared meals on hand definitely comes in handy with a busy schedule. If it wasn’t for my excess of protein waffles, I would have only had a fruit smoothie for breakfast.

My metabolism is too high to survive off of a fruit smoothie for more then a couple hours, so this protein waffle was really a life saver!

3 Ingredient High-Protein Hazelnut Crepes!

One of the reasons I LOVE these crepes, is because they’re PACKED with protein and only have 3 ingredients. I love knowing exactly what I’m putting into my body, so making my own breakfast is always a joy. No artificial sweeteners or preservatives in here, that’s for sure 🙂

Breathtaking flower fruit spinach salad!

This delicious mouthful of healthy Fitspiration will absolutely take your breath away. I brought this baby to a party this weekend and all my friends LOVED it!

It’s easy, healthy and BEAUTIFUL (if I do say so myself… and I do!)

Did I mention it was cheap too? My fridge is almost always filled with fruit (since I make fruit smoothies every morning), so I used all the left-over fruits I had in there, and created this flowerful beauty!

My boyfriend brought in some lovely flowers from my front garden, so I threw those in for some extra color too.

I really love that this is such an impressive looking salad that took such little effort to throw together for a party. Keep it in mind for your next hang out!

P.s Oh my gosh you guys, aren’t my food-ography pictures getting so much better??!? I’ve been practicing with different lightning techniques with my camera and it’s been making SUCH a big difference.

How To Make a Green Smoothie! Vegetarians, this is especially for you :)

green

I really need to start making more green smoothies!

I’ve got the morning fruit smoothie routine down to a science, but I’m having a hard time getting some green veggies in there. Definitely going to use this on this morning’s smoothie. Being a life-long vegetarian, I need all the green veggies I can get.

Not to mention, I just got some AWESOME green tea lemonade from a health food store by my house that I can’t WAIT to try. It’ll be a perfect addition to a green smoothie.

I’ll post the recipe that I come up with later today 🙂

Going Greek in Ralphs- Three colored grapes in one!

image

Shopping around in my neighborhood store, I came across this AWESOME medially of grapes and bought 2 boxes!!

Now all I need is a hot guy in a Toga with a huge leaf fan to feed them to me while sitting in a royal throne.
Hey, a girl can dream right?

I wonder how my boyfriend Bryan would feel about wearing a toga…

I can’t wait to use these flavors in all kinds of recipes, salads and smoothies this week 🙂

Who wouldn’t like 3 colors of grapes in one? Pure genius.
