20140607-113055-41455712.jpg

Fast & Easy!

1 banana
2 egg whites
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
Dash of cinnamon
(1 tsp flax seed oil optional)

Blend together in a magic/nutribullet and blend until smooth. Pancakes will be a little thinner than regular pancake batter so cool accordingly! Top with sugar free syrup or fresh fruit (Makes 6-7 small pancakes)

Looks fancy, huh!?

It’s not! LOL.. Seriously this dinner took ZERO prep time and about ten minutes to make! If you have kids or work long hours, this is perfect for you- or even if you don’t do any of those things haha! The shrimp came on the skewers, raw and deveined ready to grill- purchased from Meijer! (Usually I prefer to skewer my own shrimp, but I knew I’d be teaching late classes this week so I figured I’d take a shortcut) I just drizzled a little olive oil on the shrimps and set them on the grill. I did the same thing with the asparagus, and the quinoa comes from Costco ready to eat in 60 seconds! Seriously, it’s like a dream to just warm those up and have it ready. Like I said, 10 minutes and DONE! You can add any Mrs. Dash or non salted seasoning to the shrimp! ENJOY!

Meal prep!

Easy meal prep!

I like to buy bulk chicken breasts and cut them in half (depending on how you like your chicken, you can fillet it either way) Grill up your chicken with any vegetables you like. This week was zucchini- I like to use a grill pan to I can grill the veg at the same time and none of them fall through the slats of the grill. (Meijer was out of asparagus or that would have been added as well) One of my favorite things are the sweet potato steam bags! What’s easier than putting a bag in the microwave for 8 minutes?! You get 5 small sweet potatoes in each bag! Also grilled are a few bison burgers, large salad, and extra chicken to top on the salad! Use my lemon vinaigrette dressing recipe posted last week! Total meal prep time: 1-2 hours 🙂
