Hey guys! Welcome to the next edition of CNC Instagram Live – and I have quite the roundup today! Most of the questions are short and sweet, so I have a total of 6 to answer for you with a super common question at the end that I typically ignore because it’s kind of… well, you’ll see… but I answered it below. Ok, here we go…     Back-to-school breakfast ideas? I’m always happy to…

With the new year officially here, I wanted to share some of the macro-friendly vegetarian recipes that I plan to add back into my weekly rotation – specifically, high-protein vegetarian breakfasts that aren’t eggs! After FULLY enjoying the holiday season, my body is craving much more nutritious meals. Anyone else? Of course, the fun part about taking a break from macro-counting and meal prep is that I always feel excited to jump back into a…

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have already seen this recipe – actually, probably more than once because I’m seriously loving it lately. It’s so easy to make, seriously delicious, and macro-friendly with 14 grams of protein per serving. I also love this recipe because you can whip it up ahead of time and then reheat it in the microwave for a quickie breakfast. I love topping it with fresh avocado or placing…

I’ve partnered with Applegate Farms to bring you this easy and delicious, make-ahead breakfast recipe. It’s one that you can whip up on your food prep day and enjoy throughout the week. As always, thank you for supporting CNC, and I hope you and your family enjoy this recipe! I’m one of those people who goes to bed thinking about what I want to eat for breakfast the next morning. Anyone else? I swear having…

Hi, guys! I still can’t believe it’s August. How is summer flying by so quickly!? It’s been a whirlwind, so I haven’t been on top of my usual meal prep game. I always make sure to do a little each week, but I really need to get back at it – anyone else need to do the same? When Mal is back to work in just a few new weeks, it’s nice to have a…

Hi, friends! As you know, I’m ALL about breakfast. It’s easy my favorite meal of the day. And if it’s on-point, both taste- and nutrition-wise, the rest of my eats will typically follow suit. A healthy breakfast really sets the tone for the day, which is why I often suggest to my nutrition clients that they get it squared away at the start of the week – whether it’s prepped ahead or something that’s literally…

Hi, friends! I’ve mentioned on the blog in recent months, I’ve limited the amount of eggs I’m eating due to skin issues (acne) that I’ve dealt with which seems like forever. My skin improved dramatically, so I slowly started to incorporate eggs again – basically, 2-3 eggs per week because, well, I missed them (I love a good egg sandwich!) and they’re so good for you. At first, I didn’t have any sort of reaction,…

Guys, this Smooth as Honey White Bean Spread is absolutely delicious – the texture is so incredible and is just bursting with flavor. Mixing white beans, almond butter, honey, and cinnamon together might sound a little strange to you, but I promise it’s a winning combination! It reminds me of my favorite flavored nut butter, but with additional nutrients from the beans. The honey sweetens up the spread, so you don’t taste the beans at…

Hi, friends! Just popping in real quick with a new recipe that I whipped up yesterday. I was away for the weekend, so I did the majority of my meal prep yesterday, including making a batch of these breakfast cookies. Recently, you might have noticed that I’m really digging rice cakes with peanut butter, banana, and sometimes ground flax for breakfast. It’s simple, delicious, satisfying, and mostly nutritious. I say “mostly” because rice cakes don’t have…

Made with whole grain bread, vanilla Greek yogurt, low-fat milk, honey, vanilla protein powder, and cinnamon, this breakfast is just as satisfying as it is delicious. I use Sundays to meal prep lots of veggies and meats, but also breakfast. It’s so easy to mix up a few batches and store in the refrigerator. Just grab and go for a fuss-free morning! Honey, Stay-in-Bread Pudding Serves 1 Ingredients: 1 large slice whole grain bread 1/4…

Hi, guys! Happy Valentine’s Day to you! Anything fun planned? I hope you give and receive plenty of LOVE today! 🙂 You might have seen this recipe for Banana Flax Protein Breakfast Cookies on Instagram Stories, so I just wanted to share it here because it’s definitely a winner. It’s basically protein oatmeal (with ground flax and chia seeds) in cookie form. If you thought oatmeal for breakfast couldn’t get easier, it just did! I made…

Good morning! I receive lots of questions about how I make my sweet potato toast, so I’m sharing a quick video tutorial. It’s such a simple, nutritious, and delicious breakfast and snack. I personally love it topped with sliced avocado with a few shakes of the amazing Trader Joe’s Everything Bagel Seasoning. It’s also so so good with your favorite nut butter and a sprinkle of hempseeds and cinnamon. I hope you try it and love…

Let’s talk about breakfast this morning. Some say it’s the most important meal of the day, and I personally think it sets the tone for your entire morning and beyond, so I always make it a point to eat a nutritious one. I mean, if I eat a crappy breakfast, there’s a good chance the rest of my food (and even exercise) choices will follow suit. For me, a healthy breakfast is pretty much a…

Just because I’m not eating eggs right now, doesn’t mean you can’t! FYI: I’m still experimenting with the eggs and acne stuff. Before I make any conclusions, I want to get through another cycle or two to see what happens with my skin. I’ll be sure to keep you guys in the loop! Besides Kraft Mac & Cheese and Ramen Noodles, one of the first things I ever learned to cook was Egg-in-a-Nest. Rewind to 12-years…
