Southwest Scramble

Southwest Scramble

I am doing 80 Day Obsession again, which is a combined fitness & nutrition program. It requires timed eating of different food groups. This Southwest Scramble makes a GREAT pre-workout and/or post-workout meal on the program! It also is freaking delicious and a great healthy breakfast option even if you are not following a timed nutrition program. I love that, with minimal meal prep, this recipe is so easy to make, even if you’re getting up SUPER early to eat and workout before work, like me! It only takes ten minutes or less.

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

Spinach Artichoke Frittata

This recipe was hatched when I had more eggs than I knew what to do with! Haha, bad pun, I know. I’m a part of an awesome egg CSA from Ley Creek Farm in Fulton, NY, so I get a dozen farm fresh eggs each week. I literally walk past the chickens as I pick them up. It’s really cool knowing egg-zactly where my food comes from… ok, I’ll stop with the puns :P But anyways, I had a TON of eggs still left to use one week, so I decided to make a frittata. I am a BIG FAN of goat cheese and recently learned some amazing nutritional benefits of both spinach and artichokes, so I threw all of these great ingredients together to create this frittata! A frittata is basically a quiche without the crust. And I actually ended up having this (and the leftovers!) for dinner a few nights that week. The following week, I remade the dish the following week for a brunch with my girlfriends that I was hosting. It’s basically delicious any time of day!

"Fried" Chicken

"Fried" Chicken

I absolutely love using my Air Fryer. It really, truly makes things tastes fried, even though there is no oil in the fryer. Craziness. I have always liked fried chicken… I used to love this one fried chicken Kid Cuisine freezer dinner as a kid. My parents would get us those whenever we had a babysitter. This is a lot healthier though, haha. But it tastes JUST as good, if not better. The Old Bay makes this chicken super tasty. And then your partner can make “old bae” jokes. So fun.

Tarragon Egg Salad

Tarragon Egg Salad

I love tarragon. I had it in a Blue Apron recipe one time and fell in love. I had a bunch of eggs to use from my egg CSA through Ley Creek Farm, so I figured I would meal prep a batch of fancy egg salad for my lunches. Instead of having it on a sandwich or wrap (which you totally could do), I had mine just over plain arugula, with some multigrain crackers for dipping. Egg salad is awesome and versatile - you can really do a lot with it!

Chicken Patty

Chicken Patty

Sometimes, you just want something comforting like a chicken patty. But often, the ones you buy at the store are so processed and laden with additional ingredients. They are super simple to make at home - you can make a huge batch of these and freeze them. You can eat them on a whole wheat bun, or a lettuce wrap, or even just plain! I really like these chicken patties for easy meal prep. Try subbing out almond flour for the all-purpose flour to make these keto!
