5 Minute Homemade Peanut Butter

By Kate Horney Confession: I’m a peanut-butter-a-holic. Yes, it’s a real condition… Unfortunately, like many man made products we consume, the peanut-butter on our grocery shelves today is far from natural or good for fat loss. Traditional peanut butter – the “normal” kind that we’re accustomed to – is often loaded with trans-fat. Trans-fat keeps the ...[Read More]

It’s pumpkin pie protein shake season!!! (Also known as, you know, just pumpkin season–but this shake is good enough to have it’s own season–trust me!)

And as a huge added bonus, pumpkins conta ...[Read More]

Fat Loss Friendly Deviled Eggs

By Blair Lindler Deviled eggs are one of my favorite foods – Grandma turned me onto them when I was just a wee one. But as I’ve grown up, I’ve found new and “improved” (read: healthier) ways to make one of my favorite finger foods to take to picnics, pot-lucks, or any sort of party (football games included!) As football season comes into full swing with its tailgates and rivalries, this seems ...[Read More]

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

Lazy Fajitas and Guac

One of my biggest weaknesses when it comes to food is Mexican food. I love it. I love going to our local Mexican restaurant and savoring every bite. However, it doesn’t take a genius to know that it isn’t exactly on the “good list” for eating right or following a fat-loss lifestyle. So when I get the hankering for some Mexican, I have this one go-to dish. I love this dish because it’s a one-dish m ...[Read More]

I *love* the rain! Perhaps because fall is looming around the corner, or maybe it’s the gloomy weather…whatever the case, I needed ...[Read More]

Metabolic Effect’s Quick Chili

By Blair Lindler Sunday’s always seem to creep up on me incredibly too fast – the weekends never seem to last as long as they should!  But one of the standing traditions in my life is food prep that gets me set up with “fast food” for the whole week that keeps me on track with my healthy diet and minimizes the need or desire for  junk food that does nothing positive for my body’s needs. This Sunda ...[Read More]
