Lamb Chops & Spicy-Sweet Potato & Dried Cranberry Waffle

This easy lamb chops recipe is sweet, with just the right kick of heat. Seasoned generously with herbs and spices, it sits on top of a delicious sweet potato and cranberry waffle. If you were wondering what else you could make with that waffle iron sitting in your cabinet, give this a try. Whether it’s for Easter brunch or a fancy Mother’s Day feast, the juicy and tender lamb chops look gorgeous on top of crispy waffles that are not only paleo friendly, but protein packed to keep you on track for your health and fitness goals.   

 

Try to get grass fed and organic lamb since they have a more robust flavor and are better for your body too. While the spice mix I use here is more middle eastern, containing turmeric, cumin, garlic, red pepper, and onion powder, feel free to switch it up with whatever you have in your pantry. Lamb traditionally pairs well with dill, garlic, rosemary, and mint so if you have those on hand, a dash here and there will be very welcome. If you have a cast iron skillet, all the better to get a nice crust that seals in the moisture, or you can chuck them over some charcoal for grilled lamb chops or chops with garlic instead. If you have a rack of lamb, seasoning it and then roasting it in the oven is also a possibility, especially if you’re preparing multiple portions for lunch or dinner guests. I personally love lamb chops medium rare, but you might like them a little more or less cooked and that’s completely fine. Make sure you practice food safety when handling raw meat.   

  

What is the Secret?

The secret to keeping the waffles together are the egg whites, which will bind the grated sweet potatoes and prevent them from falling apart. To keep the waffles from getting soggy, only place the lamb chops on top of them in the last few minutes before serving. The waffles are a great way to use up the sweet potatoes if you find yourself with too many. They also freeze and reheat well, so you can make a whole stack of them, stick them in the freezer, and pop a few into the oven for a quick and easy breakfast.

Protein Banana Split

While this year might not be the best time to hit the gym, you can still and exercise and work out in the comfort of your own home. Do you know what goes well after a good workout? A good protein-packed meal! Grab your whey protein, and it’s time to make some protein banana split!

Usually, the typical banana split consists of a banana split in half, three scoops of ice cream in any flavor, topped with nuts, chocolate or strawberry syrup, and cherries. The only thing about classic banana splits is that they are high in sugar content if consumed regularly. On the other hand, this protein-packed version of the banana split will definitely fill you up after a good workout.

For the ingredients, you’ll need one medium banana, non-fat Greek yogurt, strawberries, blueberries, and granola. Greek yogurt is yogurt strained to remove most of its whey, resulting in a thicker consistency, which makes it the perfect substitute for ice cream. You can also add dark chocolate chips according to your preference.

Start by cutting your banana in half lengthwise. Then if you want to slice up your strawberries and blueberries, you can slice them according to your preference. It’s also fine not to slice them up and eat them as they are. Place your banana on a rectangular plate, then add in your non-fat Greek yogurt. Throw in your fruits in the banana split, and sprinkle your granola as well. Voila! You just made a protein-packed banana split.

You can pair this up with a whey protein isolate of your choice. This recipe sure is a filling and muscle-building one because of its proteins, which makes it the perfect post-workout meal. You can also use this recipe as a low-carb breakfast to start your day right.
