HAPPY HALLOWEEN YA’LL! I know there are a lot of you out there dieting and right about now you’re eyeing that candy jar thinking, “Just one…” I know I am. I can’t even keep it in the house to be honest. Instead of candy , I think I’ll give kids life advice. Ya know, stuff like “Make sure you put at least 6% in your 401k,” etc. Ladies and gentleman, meet the most hated girl on the block. 🙂
Anyway, since you guys aren’t visting my house, I thought I’d give ya some advice via blog: Halloween doesn’t have to derail your diet! One of the reasons I love IIFYM, is that (1) you can have candy if you want and (2) there are plenty of hacks to make fantastic treats that won’t break the calorie bank.
So, who’s ready for ice cream?! Here’s my all time favorite ice cream recipe. Play around with your favorite toppings and stay lean all winter!
Macros Roughly: Protein: 17.0 Carbs:10.2 Fat 8.2 Total Calories:185.5
This is all you’ll need:
1/2 scoop 1st Phorm Vanilla Ice Cream
1 tsp Buff Bake Snickerdoodle Almond Spread
1/2 cup almond milk
Fat free whipped cream
Sugar Free Caramel
Blend protein, milk, and almond spread with ice. Add desired topping. Done.
That wasn’t hard was it? It would have taken you the same amount of time to make regular ice cream. Don’t have time to eat healthy treats? LAWYERED. I ate this my entire prep up to like two weeks before my show.
So while everyone snacks on their kit kats, enjoy a huge bowl of this and thank me later.
It’s the most important meal of the day. Whenever I hear people tell me they “just can’t eat breakfast,” I’m like “DEAR GOD WHY.” Eating a filling, macro-friendly breakfast is critical to your success throughout the day. If you aren’t eating until lunch, then you are really going to binge. HARD.
This is one of my go-to recipes both on and off prep. Here’s what you’ll need.
1/2 cup Kodiak Cake Mix (can be found at Target or on Amazon.com)
1/2 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder (I prefer 1st Phorm)
3 tbsp Liquid Egg Whites
1/4 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
This recipe is very macro-friendly and can be modified to fit your desired goals. Guys can probably add a whole scoop of protein if they wanted. For my macro trackers, here is the full amount. In case you’re wondering, the app is MyMacros+. You can get it in the app store.
The recipe in itself is pretty simple, just spray a nonstick pan and heat up about mid-temperature. While heating, mix up all of the ingredients until they are a pancake-like consistency. You may have to add or subtract almond milk depending on your protein, but it should look like this:
Pour the mix into the pan and wait until the mixture starts to bubble. Once the bubbles pop, it’s time to flip it. It took me a while to get this right, but even if you mess it up it is still delicious 🙂
Watch for the Bubbles!
Once you’ve flipped, wait until golden brown. Eat with your desired toppings (I prefer zero calorie Walden Farms) and enjoy!
