Sweet Potato & Spinach Frittata – Whole 30

This past weekend I was looking up recipes to make and trying to figure out something a little different to do with eggs.  I went through at least a dozen recipes and saw nothing that really caught my eye.  Instead I went into the kitchen with some things that I had and made my own, if you have a recipe like this I am sorry as I didn’t see it :).  It is very simple and it came out AMAZING!

Roasted Root Vegetables – Recipe

I am a summer obsessed girl.  I love all things summer.  The sun.  The heat.  The pool.  Having BBQs.  Fun outdoor adventures.  The beach and everything in between.

That being said I am all about the fall because of the delicious scents and foods that appear in the stores during that time of year.  This past weekend I went to buy new hand soap at Bath & Body Works and of course the entire bag was filled with fall scents!

When I decided last week I was going to make this dish it made me slightly sad because it screams fall, changing leaves, cooler temperatures, and shorter days.  I did have the intentions to make it because I wanted to use up some straggling ingredients in the kitchen.  Continue reading

I will hopefully bring you some of the Green Smoothie recipes I have made over the past week or two to you next week.  I just have to compile everything together.  So lets hope that Monday is the day!  Have a great first weekend of spring!  What are your plans?

Almond Butter & Jelly Mug Breakfast

This morning I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do for breakfast.  I could have my already prepared protein waffles, egg scramble, oatmeal, or steel-cut oats.  I decided to go in a different direction because when I entered the kitchen I really wanted raisins.  They are one of my favorite things to eat.  From there I decided to make myself an almond butter & raisin (pseudo-jelly) mug waffle/pancake for breakfast.  Almond butter has also become one of my favorite things to eat as well.  I would have typically went for the crunchy kind but lately I have been buying the creamy kind.

If I tell you it was great that would be an understatement!  It was so delicious I wish there was more or there was more time to make another one.  The almond butter was melted throughout the mug making this treat an extra delicious way to start off the morning.

Ingredients:
1/4 cup egg whites
1/2 TBSP cinnamon
1 TBSP Almond Breeze Almond Milk
1 TBSP Barney Butter Almond Butter
1-2 TBSP Organic Raisins
1 scoop Perfect Fit Protein Vanilla Flavor
1/2 TBSP Ground Flaxseed
Almond Butter & Raisins for Garnish

Directions
Place all ingredients except for the AB & Raisins for garnish into a microwaveable mug.  Make sure all ingredients are well mixed.  I put it in the microwave for 2 1-minute increments until it was finished.  Why?  Sometimes you never know how a microwave will react with the food I didn’t want my hopefully delicious breakfast to explode.    When the 2 minutes was up I took it out and placed a little almond butter and some raisins on top for garnish.

Let me know if you make this and what you think of it!
