Chocolate Protein Pancake Strips

Salmon with Mango Salad

Salmon with Mango Salad

I got this tasty salad at one of my favorite local restaurants—Capital Grille. They are open for lunch and serve “lunch-sized” portions that are smaller than the dinner ones. The salmon is grilled with light seasoning and a little dill on top for garnish. I scraped off the dollop of aioli  though I don’t think […]

The Best Almond Milk Cappuccino I’ve Ever Had

The Best Almond Milk Cappuccino I’ve Ever Had

Ohmyheavens! I love my daily Cappuccino. It’s the ultimate morning wakeup call for me. I have a Kuerig machine to make my coffee, but you DO NOT need one to make cappuccino. Any coffee maker will work just fine. All you need is the milk frother. That’s the nifty device that turns your milk into […]

Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Broccolini

Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Broccolini

This was a delicious dinner for me. 8 grilled shrimps on wooden skewers cooked a few minutes on each side. The broccolini was sauteed in a little extra virgin olive oil and chopped garlic. And a small lemon wedge and a pinch of parsley for garnish. Super healthy, super clean, and super tasty. With my […]
