Gluten Free Blackberry Protein Pancakes

Gluten Free Blackberry Protein Pancakes

So, you want all of the benefits of blackberries but you also want pancakes—and you want them gluten free? Then, this one is for YOU. We will be using sorghum flour for the pancakes — a light, fluffy, gluten-free, neutral tasting flour that makes for perfect pancakes in both taste and texture. You can buy sorghum flour at most health food stores, or supermarkets that have a well-stocked gluten-free section. If you are very gluten sensitive, you’ll want to make double sure all of the labels say “Gluten Free”. Some people are more sensitive to gluten than others.

Low Carb Breakfast Pizza

Low Carb Breakfast Pizza

A long time ago, a lame poorly lit cellphone picture of an omelet on my Instagram feed became the most popular picture I had for about a year and a half. Why? Chad had made eggs that tasted just like pizza. Yes, it’s possible to have your eggs taste like pizza—and have it fit into your macros too! Good news for those on a Ketogenic Diet: this recipe has less than 2 grams of carbs! Besides the yummy flavor, the best thing is that it’s really inexpensive, easy to make, and you can find the ingredients in almost any store. If you want to add some carbs, just nuke a sweet potato or have a glass of Karbolyn!

Chocolate Brownie Crunch Protein Bars

Chocolate Brownie Crunch Protein Bars

Here is a wonderfully easy recipe for protein bars that involves no baking whatsoever! You can make these by the batch along with one of my other bar recipes, and have several different flavors at your disposal. These taste like chewy, moist peanut-y brownies. Even better, they just so happen to be packed to the gills with protein. Another plus, they only have 187 calories each!

Healthy Chicken Fried Rice

Healthy Chicken Fried Rice

Although New York is famous for its pizza, it also has one unsung treasure you miss very much when you move away: Chinese food! It’s a way of life in New York. In fact, many locals eat Chinese food at least once a week. One of the staples on the menus of the ‘hole in the wall’ Chinese food restaurants (those are the very best!) is something that isn’t famous for being healthy: fried rice. Well, I’m about to attempt the near impossible: to make fried rice healthy…Yes, it CAN be done!
