This dixie cup fruit popsicle recipe is sweet, juicy, and packs all the fun of summer into fruit ice pops. You can easily use all your favorite fruits, and create flavor combinations like orange mango. Add dollops of vanilla greek yogurt if you want it to be creamy as well. This is the height of easy crafting that the whole family can enjoy together. Instead of using popsicle molds, you use dixie cups to make cute small portioned homemade fruit ice pops that can easily be removed from the cups by running them under warm water.
This refreshing treat doesn’t have to be just limited to the fruits I provided here. My popsicle recipe is very adaptable to all sorts of fruits and creations. Depending on your popsicle mixture, the time it takes for the fruit popsicle to fully freeze may differ, but you can’t go wrong with freezing overnight. The orange slice provides a fun and cute “base” that prevents it from melting down your hands if you’re a little slow to eat. I love how it is the perfect mixture of sweet and tart, but doesn’t contain so much sugar or fruit juice that it makes it unhealthy and carb loaded. The juicy berries are full of antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, making this kid friendly treat good to eat and good for us. A better dessert alternative for those hot summer days.

Epic Bodybuilding Meal Prep (Gran Prep de Comidas para Culturistas)
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.
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.
Just thinking about this sweet, savory, and spicy treat that gets my appetite going. If you enjoyed this herbed lamb chops and waffles recipe, shoot me a message or leave a comment below. I would love to hear all about it!
High protein parfait for breakfast? It’s a great combination of fresh fruits, nonfat Greek yogurt and crunchy granola. Perfect healthy breakfast on the go.
This blackberry and strawberry parfait recipe has 3 layers, which you can assemble the way I am, or as you wish. Also, it can be assembled in any container you want. I use these glass jars because they are very practical.
Berries play a major role in this recipe, so make sure the ones you get are ripe enough, juicy and sweet.
Wash and drain the berries well. Remove the stems from strawberries, then chop them into slices or small chunks. To assemble the parfaits, layer the three components starting with adding fresh strawberries and blackberries in the bottom of parfait glasses. Then add greek yogurt and finally granola. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top if you like.
If you want to boost a level of protein, you can add a little bit of collagen or flavored protein powder of your choice to the greek yogurt.
Chill parfaits for 2 hours in the fridge before serving, and they are ready for sweet enjoyment. It tastes as good as they look, trust me!
This parfaits recipe is very customizable, so you can add fruits or other ingredients of your choice. You can add fresh raspberries, peaches, blueberries, or bananas. As long as the fruit is fresh, the dessert will be great. Also, try to make your own homemade granola and use it in this combination for breakfast.
Parfait doesn’t have to be just breakfast, you can also use this recipe for a healthy dessert. Many desserts require baking in the oven, but this is a great, very easy recipe that does not require much time to make.
It is also a great dessert that you can make for someone, if you do not have a lot of skills for making desserts that are complicated.
These sweet potato sliders with lean ground turkey are a recipe that is as nutritious as tasty!
The following ingredients will be enough to make four sliders. Get 6oz of lean ground meat of your choice, 150g of sweet potatoes, arugula and spinach, BBQ sauce, and spices.
Simply slice sweet potatoes into thick pieces to make the buns. Place them on a baking sheet and bake the potato slices in the oven at 405F. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until the buns are fully cooked and at the right firmness level.
Some people prefer them soft, but I prefer the firmer version for this recipe. Be sure to let them cool before you assemble the burger and start eating so you don’t get burnt.
Season the lean ground turkey and make mini patties with your hands. Cook the meat in the skillet on medium heat and leave them to cool down for a couple of minutes.
Now, we will assemble these patties. On one of the sweet potato slices, add arugula and spinach, turkey pattie, and a tablespoon of BBQ sauce. Top it with the second sweet potato slice. Repeat the process for your remaining sliders. Serve your sliders and enjoy! Just that easy!

You will enjoy this delicious kabob recipe with very nutritious quinoa. Quinoa is very high in protein and rich in fiber, much larger than most grains. It is also gluten-free and perfect if you are gluten intolerant.

Spray a skillet with olive oil and place on medium-high heat. Place the assembled kabobs in the skillet. Rotate chicken until all sides are seared.

I’m gonna show you a really easy way to make protein peanut butter, using just two simple ingredients. You will fall in love with this recipe the first time you taste it.
The first ingredient is simple, you’re gonna need the leanest isolate whey protein that you can find in the store. The whey protein should be with vanilla flavor, zero grams of carbs, sugar and fats.
The second, most important ingredient for this recipe is powdered peanut butter. I love to use different kinds of peanut butter, but for today’s recipe, I’m gonna use PB2.
Let’s get started with the prep. Take a kitchen scale and measure 90g of powdered peanut butter into a bowl. Then measure 1 scoop of protein powder into a plastic cup and mix with 4oz water.
Slowly begin to add powder and liquid protein to a jar and continuously mix. If it’s to your liking, add cinnamon or cocoa to the powder BEFORE adding liquid protein and mix well with the peanut powder.
In the end, add one scoop of organic honey into the jar with mixed protein peanut butter. Stir well, and your Honey Cinnamon & Chocolate Protein Peanut Butter is ready for use.
Creamy peanut butter spread on bread, toast, or protein bars and eat. You can also add it to oatmeal, your favorite salad, as a topping for different dishes, or eat it with whatever you like.
This jar has a total of 549 calories and as much as 59 grams of protein. It’s a great source of protein, especially when you are trying to get more protein in your diet or after training.
If you focus on a healthy diet rich in protein, you are at the right place. On my site fitmencook.com, you can explore many different recipes that are to your liking, and are prepared quickly and easily.

One of the most important lessons I have learned while adhering to a healthy lifestyle and diet is the importance of preparation. Meal prep can be a very helpful tool, in addition to saving time, you can better manage your portion sizes and macronutrients. Pick one day to do your healthy meal prepping, it can be a Sunday night or another day that suits you the most. Plan and prepare meals and snacks in advance.
You can prepare any food that is well kept in storage and has a delicious taste after a few days in the refrigerator. Cooked meat or grilled meat, brown rice, quinoa or potatoes, roasted or raw vegetables or other food that is a good basis for recipes for preparing meals.
I’m sharing with you 3 meal prep ideas which I made one week for myself.
The first meal is tempeh with brown rice and black quinoa, which I paired with fresh veggies, cucumber and red bell pepper slices. Cook the tempeh in a skillet with olive oil, garlic, cumin and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Also, cook brown rice and black quinoa, and chop veggies into slices. Arrange in a bowl and the first meal is ready.
The next recipe is with chicken, sweet potatoes and eggplant. Prepare meat as well as eggplant in a skillet, and bake sweet potatoes in the oven.
The last meal prep recipe is rainbow trout with asparagus and mushrooms. Season the rainbow trout and bake in the oven for 10 minutes, and grill the veggies in the skillet.
Ta-da! 3 very simple healthy meals, from just a few ingredients, which are prepared quickly and very easily.

Gaspari ISOFusion Peanut Butter, Coffee & Chocolate Protein & Hemp Granola Parfait with blueberries and chocolate chips. Boom.
This combination is pure magic. As someone who loves coffee, chocolate, and peanut butter, this recipe was a real discovery for me. When I first made it, I had to make it every day for a whole week. I like to make chocolate peanut butter coffee for breakfast or as a treat after a well-done workout.
Ingredients you will need are Gaspari ISOFusion protein powder or other protein powder you have, Nescafe instant coffee, dark chocolate powder, nonfat Greek yogurt, powdered peanut butter, granola cereal, fresh blueberries and chocolate chips.
I really love Blueberry Hemp Ancient Grain Granola by Purely Elizabeth, so I decided to add it to this recipe, but you can add some other granola.
You can use a glass cup, jar or bowl for serving. Start by adding granola to the bottom of the cup and pour in Greek yogurt on the top of it.
In another bowl mix some Greek yogurt with powdered peanut butter and add as a third layer in the cup. Then combine some Greek yogurt with protein powder, Nescafe and dark chocolate powder in a separate bowl and add on the top of peanut butter mixture.
Then top with the rest of the granola portion for this recipe, and garnish with some chocolate chips and fresh blueberries. The texture is creamy, rich, crunchy and refreshing.
Caffeine and peanut butter will give you an energy boost and you will feel full until the next meal. Besides that, it has a lot of protein and low fats, so it’s totally calorie-conscious. Treat yourself to this flavor bomb.

Today’s recipe is a Detox Beet & Fruit smoothie, perfect to cleanse the liver and “get you on the regular” Boom.
I believe that smoothies are the fastest tasty meal and that they can contain all the macros and nutrients you need. You can pack frozen fruit smoothies and carry them on to work or to school. It’s also a perfect snack or a whole meal when you don’t have much time.
There’s plenty of variation of smoothies that you can make at home. Smoothie recipes are very simple, everyone knows how to make them, and that’s one more reason why they are very popular. But to be honest, fruit smoothie recipes are so delicious!
There are no wrong recipes for smoothies, but the key is in the right combo of ingredients for the best taste and nutritional composition.
The steps for making today’s smoothie are as simple as tossing all the fruits in a blender with a little water.
For Detox Beet and Fruit Smoothie recipe you will need raw beet, one small mandarin orange, apple, frozen strawberries and one cup of water.
I prefer frozen strawberries because of the smoothie structure, but if it’s strawberry season, go with the fresh ones.
Cut the raw beet into wedges and toss all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into cups, glasses or bottles, and enjoy your meal!
I’m also fun of a strawberries banana smoothie, but I like this one the most because of the refreshing taste of oranges and beets.

What better way to get into a romantic mood than by having a delicious meal with your partner? Spice up your day with your significant other with our special Valentine’s day salad. We all know those flowers you get will wilt eventually, and you can’t even do much with them. So, why not do something different?

The first thing you’ll need is arugula. It has a slightly bitter taste and is also known as Italian cress and salad rocket. It’s a great vegetable because it’s packed with so many nutrients and antioxidants. This will surely add a kick to your meal.
Next, you will need some edible flowers. Some popular ones are hibiscus, lilacs, carnations, and roses.

Do enough research and source them properly, so you know which ones are safe to eat and won’t end up making anyone sick.
Then, you will need strawberries. These juicy little red fruits are packed with sweetness and vitamins, making it a nice ingredient to complement the rest of the dish. You can also add it to other recipes, like for a spinach or avocado salad.
