Protein Mug Cake & A GIVEAWAY!!

by Destini on July 15, 2013

This post was meant for Friday, however my site is currently changing hosting providers and I had some technical difficulties. So the site was up and down and not posting. ACK. It appears to be all up and running again!! Thank goodness!!

Now that is all behind us(I hope), let’s talk about some fitness. I have continued doing Revolt Fitness, but also have upped my gym time. I love Revolt Fitness and even after my 12 weeks, I will continue to use it. That being said, I have now started to go to the gym regularly again. I always went before, but I have definitely logged in way more hours as of late. Working out with the hubby makes me bring up my game! My 30th birthday is looming right around the corner (3.5 weeks) and I have this determination to be at my best for it. Whatever motivates you, run with it!

Recently I introduced a protein mug cake recipe to the hubby, since then……. HE IS ALWAYS REQUESTING IT! It has taken many versions and many freak outs…..but I think I might just have figured it out. I also had some help with some really great protein. Those of you that have read my blog and followed my strife with trying to find a happy medium with the hubbys allergies know that I can’t just go and use any protein in his diet. It has to be lactose free & gluten free. The poor man can’t really have much that comes out of a package anymore. And let’s all be honest, that isn’t a bad thing, just more work for me 🙂 So when North Coasts Naturals contacted me to try out some of their products, I was more than ready to give these a try. We’ve tried several natural proteins and have found some pretty good ones, but this one tops the cake for the hubby. He LOVES it! He says it breaks down perfectly in his blender cup, no chalky taste and has no tummy reactions from it.  YAY!! Oh and I forgot to mention that it’s a Canadian company!!!! Is it possible to love them anymore?

Ingredients: Yields 1

  • one scoop of North Coasts Natural Chocolate protein (or any chocolate protein)
  • 1/2T coconut flour
  • 1/4c almond milk(or any desired milk)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1T cooca powder
  • 1 packet of stevia (or liquid drops)
  • 1t baking powder

Directions: Mix all ingredients in a kitchen oil sprayed mug, cover and microwave for 35-40 seconds(watch this as it may be mushy or to dry).  Flip upside down and put it on a plate.

Toppings:You can honestly just go crazy here, but this is what my husband recommends.

  • 1T almond chocolate butter (I heat this up for 25seconds and spread it on the cake like icing)
  • pb2 maple sauce (1t pb2, 1tsp almond milk, 1/4t pure maple syrup)
  • assorted fruit

Oh it’s quite yummy and you would NEVER know that it was pretty guilt free. BONUS!!

WHOOPS!! I didn’t realize that I photographed the french side and not english. But you guys get the idea right? LOL

Remember how I said it was not possible to love North Coast Naturals anymore than I already do? Well guess what…they want you to love them just as much!! I will be giving away not one, but two tubs of protein. You pick Chocolate or Vanilla(Oh and I may just have ANOTHER recipe with the vanilla, this will just get you ready). This will run from Today, July 15th to July 23rd at midnight CST. Only open to Canadian Addresses.

Oh another little true story….I run in the Color me Rad 5k Saturday morning and I haven’t done a LICK of running in a couple months. I better get going on that…

Have a great evening 🙂

Lemon Roasted Chicken

by Destini on May 23, 2013

It’s sunny and the weather is finally warming up here. Too bad I have been sick for almost two weeks.  But thing’s are looking up, I’m not feeling like complete death anymore, just congested. I have kept to my workout plan though. I feel this helps speed up the healing. Don’t have a verdict on this yet.

One of the major questions I have gotten when asked about my Revolt Fitness program is “What are you eating? Rice crackers?” and my response “Heck no! Delicious clean food”. For any of you that have been following my blog for sometime know that I love love love FOOD. It’s a passion. I knew I would have to incorporate some of my own meals into the plan. And it needed to be something simple and I could prep on Sunday for some meals through the week.

Ingredients: Yields 4 servings

  • 4 boneless chicken breasts
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2t mustard powder
  • 1t garlic powder
  • 1t Italian seasoning
  • 1/2t ground black pepper
  • sprinkle of evoo

Directions: Preheat oven to 350c, mix all spices in a bowl together, place to the side. In an oven safe baking dish place the chicken down, and pour lemon juice over-top, sprinkle with a little bit of evoo. Make sure you flip the chicken and coat the chicken with lemon juice and evoo. Coat the chicken on both sides with the spices, place in oven, uncovered and bake for 25-30min.

Super moist, delicious & CLEAN!

It freezes really well for this diet plan! Prep on Sunday and you are good for the week 🙂

I know I have been talking a lot about this fitness program but it’s such a large portion of my life right now. I love the sore muscles and sweaty workouts! If you want to try a free week of Revolt Fitness check it out!! As I said on Tuesday I want to get a whole team of Healthy Wife readers joining the next uprising on June 3rd!!!

Tonight we are going to my In-Laws for dinner for George’s birthday dinner. His birthday is tomorrow, trust me…his Saturday is FULL of amazing meals! I’ll have to share some photos. He is on call for work, we did go out last Saturday to celebrate with the friends. But this weekend I will keep his belly full of delicious clean food!!! OH and gluten free!!

OH and please don’t forget to enter the MASSIVE Giveaway a bunch of us Revolt Bloggers are doing!! I apologize to all my Canadian friends, this is USA only. But I will be doing another giveaway NEXT week that is open to all of you!!

I have found lately that I have been so busy again, I was telling George that I couldn’t remember the last time I read a book. ME?!? I was reading 1-2 books a week a couple years ago. I spent some time downloading some new books for my kindle last night and will be making an extra effort to take time to read. I was wanting to start possibly an online book club. Every month we do a Google Hangout and discuss the book. Would this be something that would interest you guys? Let me know in the comments!!

Love ya guys 🙂

The Black Bean Burger & A Giveaway!

April 5, 2012

Hey Peeps! (I wanted to spice things up on my greetings) How was everyone’s week? Is anyone as happy as I am to know that this week is short? I can sing and lul all day long knowing I will be spending my weekend in my lulus cleaning my bathroom!

Cherry Almond Butter – {Recipe}

March 6, 2012

If you haven’t noticed, I obsess over a lot of types of food.  In fact you would think I have an obsessive personality. Which I may or may not have.  Now I know all us bloggers have squeezed out every bit of almond butter recipes known to man. But couldn’t we all use one more? I know almond butter is a MUST have in my cupboard. It goes as quickly as it comes. I had some dried cherries in the cupboard and thought “well I really love cherries and almond butter in my smoothies, so why not save a step and mix them together?” Well I did just that and […]
