Almond Chocolate Homemade Protein Bars |

Toasted Almond and Chocolate Homemade Protein Bars

I recently went away on vacation and knew that there would be many occasions, while traveling, where I wouldn’t be able to get proper food or enough protein in my body… I figured I could easily fix that problem by packing protein bars in my bags, but alas, I wasn’t able to find anything decent locally. All were filled with tons or artificial junk, […]

High Protein Cantaloupe Smoothie | by Sonia! The Healthy Foodie

3 Ingredient High Protein Cantaloupe Smoothie

It has been a week since I’ve gotten back on track after that [not so] little Holiday slip-up and I figured some of you would like to know how I am holding up… Well, I am happy to report that things are going awfully well and exactly as planned. I’m not saying it has been super easy, […]


Chocolate Cranberry and Almond Protein Cookies

Chocolate Cranberry and Almond Protein Cookies My second experimentation of the day was cookies. I found this recipe on the Net last week and decided to give it a try (I tweaked it a little, though…). There were no directions, save for “mix everything together”. Well, after I did that, I was left with some […]


Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin

Spinach, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts Savory Muffin Still experimenting with my protein bar replacement; this week-end, I decided to do things a little differently. I started with a savory muffin, for a change. Spinach, cottage cheese and walnuts. I am fairly happy with the results, their taste is really great. However, they still need a […]


Zucchini & Beets Mini Breads

The second batch I made was Zucchini / Beets. I am really happy with how they turned out. I should’ve taken a picture of the one I broke open (couldn’t resist any longer, I HAD to eat one!), they look just like Christmas inside. All the red and the green, plus the black from the […]


Banana Mini Breads

Today has been a good day, I guess, for I spent the entire day cooking. The funny thing is I don’t have much to show for it. I don’t think you guys would like to see pictures of piles of beets waiting to be peeled or inside round getting ground. I did, however, make my […]


Protein Pancakes

Pancakes for breakfast! I usually have cereal for breakfast. Day in, day out. Oh, not the store bought kind of stuff, of course, I make my own. I’ve been eating cereal every morning for the past, well, at least 10 months, and I just can’t seem to get bored with it. In fact, I look […]


Apple Cinnamon Mini Protein Breads

Second batch was Apple, Cottage Cheese and Walnuts. I used half Buckwheat and Half Whole Wheat flour, which gives the bar a really subtle taste of Buckwheat. That was is a winner, nice and dense, just the way I like them.


Cranberry Orange Mini Protein Breads

I made two batches of mini protein breads today. The first one is Cranberry, Orange and Almonds. They turned out pretty great… Nice and fluffy that one!


Sweet Potato Mini Breads

I used to eat protein bars every day. While they are a good source of non meat protein and are very convenient for they are highly portable, they aren’t the best as far as nutrients are concerned. Not much freshness going on there!!! So I started looking for a cleaner option and found a recipe […]
