CONFESSION TIME …. I am a Jillian Michaels fan and I’m proud of it! So maybe no need to confess huh!?!
I first came across Jillian, probably the same way you did. BIGGEST LOSER anyone!? Wasn’t she fun to watch?
Hey LovinLosin Fam!
Are any of you sick of pumpkin? HECK NO! Hahah, how is that even possible!? I love this time of year and I do my best to make sure I get my fair share of pumpkin in during the holidays!
My mom came by the other day and requested pumpkin pancakes. (Yeah, you read that right – my mom requested. She doesn’t cook a whole lot, so it’s up to me to make sure she is properly fed! Hahah) At the time, I didn’t have the ingredients on hand
Hey Lovin Losin Fam!
I hope all of you had an amazing “After Thanksgiving” week! Hopefully, you are all back on track with your healthy eating habits! If not, this post (8 Steps to Get Back on Track) is a great place to start 🙂
I have had a pretty crazy week, so much going on! I lost my wallet last Saturday but didn’t realize until Monday 🙁 Fortunately there wasn’t any fraudulent charges, so I’m thinking I must have just misplaced it. I did a little shopping that Black Friday weekend,
Hey LovinLosin Fam,
I can’t believe we are already here at Turkey Week! The pumpkin craze is just about over but I couldn’t help myself with this dish. I LOVE pumpkin eeerrrrrrthaaanngg! So it only made sense to come up with a dinner recipe that includes pumpkin. This turned out really good! I was skeptical as I’ve never made anything hearty with pumpkin, just the sweet stuff. But it turned out great and my kids and hubby liked it! This could even be a side dish at Thanksgiving and you could
Hi LovinLosin Fam,
Stuffed peppers are one of my faves even more so when they have one of my favorite ingredients/food – hummus! It is for sure a comfort food! I love the flavors that come together inside this recipe and plus how cool is it that the pepper serves as a little holder! It also seemed to be kid friendly as my 9 year old niece devoured it!
This is my mom’s recipe and I just love it. After baking, the stuffing is so moist and I think that’s because of
(If you look closely, you’ll see the cup is on top of my food scale!) Like I said, I ALWAYS weigh my food!
Hey LovinLosin Fam!
I have been on a Yogurt Parfait kick lately! Aren’t parfaits fabulous!? You get protein, fiber, calcium and a fruit serving all in one tiny scrumptious package. They are great for breakfast, snack or even a healthy, filling and delicious dessert!
In my next post, I’m going to talk about the variety of granola out there and which one I really liked based on nutritional info and
Hello LovinLosin Fam,
One of that hardest parts of the Flexible/IIFYM diet for me is hitting my protein quota for the day. It might not be that way for all of you but if it is, this is a delicious quick way to do it! So, I’ve found that one of the easiest ways to get it in, is using protein powder. You will notice if you’re new to counting macros, protein powder can be used in ways that you never imagined! Whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner or dessert,
As I stood there in the grocery store line, I did what everyone else does, I grabbed a fitness magazine so I could drool over all the 6 pack of abs featured on page after page!
I went to turn another page and came across a picture of a Salted Caramel protein bar by a company called SunWarrior. Now … if you’re a true #fitfoodie like me, then you would totally get my excitement over a protein bar especially a Salted Caramel one!
It was at that time that I started my
Here is a very easy basic recipe that is “amped up” with protein to ensure you stay full until lunch! They are also a great breakfast to meal prep as they freeze perfectly and are easy to grab from the freezer when heading out the door to work and will be thawed by the time you get to your desk and sit down with your coffee!

Do you have a SWOLEMATE?! I DO!!
Do you ever feel guilty because of all the time you put into your food prep and then you swolemate goes to work empty handed while you’re eating a DELICIOUS macro-friendly meal!? I DO!!
Haha, My poor hubby … he actually usually goes without breakfast like every day. I’m over here eating like a Queen and he is starving! So … with a certain LOVE holiday approaching … I decided that a simple nice gesture would be to amp up my normal meal prep to
Are you a hummus lover?! I am!! I’ve even converted my kids … I just keep the part that it’s made out of Garbanzo beans or chickpeas a secret!
With this recipe, I’ve taken a traditional hummus and gave it SUPER POWERS! Turns out … it tastes pretty dang good with super powers and it helps me hit my protein goal!
It’s amazing how easily I can hit my fat and carb quotas, but I can sometimes really struggle with that protein one! Do you find yourself in that same situation? I
You must have seen these and your mouth just started watering right!? They taste just as chewy and chocolatey as they look!! And if you have never eaten a no bake cookie, you are in luck as you will never look back! These cookies will become – maybe not a staple in your diet, but something that you will definitely CRAVE and want to make again and again! Just ask someone who has had them before … it’s the TRUTH! Haha
In fact, if you truly are a no bake cookie

Do you ever wonder if you’re really drinking enough? Maybe you feel like you do a pretty good job but at the end of the day, you don’t really know. Or maybe you know that you could do better, but don’t really know if the lack of hydration is even a
You must be an OREO lover like me!!? Of course you are, who isn’t!? OREO’s have been proven to be addictive, well at least they used to be … I’m serious … Google it! Hahah
They are by FAR one of my FAVORITE treats! Insomuch, that I usually can not buy them because they are a TRIGGER food for me! And why wouldn’t they be with their perfect combination of chocolate and vanilla, creaminess and crunchiness! I’m beginning to drool, I better stop!
In my last post – Healthy Cheesecake – I talked

Yes, it’s true what you see in this picture! You can have a pizza … a whole pizza to your self!
When you are trying to eat healthy, one of the least fun situations to be in is going to a pizza place with no other options than pizza or ordering pizza in!
SERIOUSLY!? Have you ever been in that situation?! I have LOTS of times and it ALWAYS sucked until I learned about this PIZZA HACK!
I vividly remember a year ago taking my family to a pizza place around the corner
Are you a coconut lover? I am! There is something about coconut that makes me feel like I’m on vacation even though I’m really just sitting in my kitchen with kids running all around making it feel like I am anywhere BUT on a vacation! Hahah
I especially love the combination of banana with coconut but when you add peanut butter … something magical happens! What makes this even better is the fact that these pancakes are healthy, delicious and full of protein! 42 grams of protein to be exact!
