Such a simple but delicious low-carb meal! You can easily customize this recipe with whatever toppings you like, here's my favourite version!
-1 cup liquid egg whites
-1/4 tsp basil
-1/4 tsp oregano
-dash of salt
-15g low-fat cheddar or marble cheese –>shredded
-27g green pepper chopped and steamed for about 1:00min with a little water covered in the microwave (pour off excess water afterwards!)
-50g tomato sliced thinly
-1 tbsp chopped whole or pizza style green olives (15g)
-90mL (just under 1/3 cup) pizza sauce or pasta tomato sauce (I used Unico pizza sauce) (cover and heat in the microwave for 30sec. before topping eggs)
-additional basil/oregano for topping
-Pam cooking spray
Directions: Spray a medium-sized frying pan with pam. Heat over medium-low. Pour in the egg whites and add spices. Cook until egg just starts turning white, sprinkle your toppings over the eggs. Continue to cook over low enough heat as not to brown the egg too much while cooking it almost through. Then carefully flip the eggs like a huge pancake and cook on the other side just until set! Take off the heat and top with your warm pizza or marinara sauce and a few extra spices. Slice with a pizza cutter and dig in! You may not be able to hold this like a regular pizza but it will definitely still taste delicious!
Nutrition: 6g fat, 13g carbs, 34g protein & 5g fibre
This doesn't sound like much..but trust me it's good, creamy & rich with half the fat and double the protein of regular egg salad. This makes a delicious, filling low-carb meal on it's own or it would go great on a sandwich! You can increase or decrease the spice based on personal preference.
1 whole egg boiled chopped
1 can of tuna (about 140g) shredded
1 cup egg whites seasoned with black pepper and a little salt cooked like a pancake (cooked in a pan sprayed with pam over medium-low heat, flip half way through, don't brown the egg too much, just enough!) slice into chunks and place in the fridge to chill.
70g ripe avocado chopped into chunks(about 1/3 of a large avocado)
2 tbsp 2% cottage cheese
2 tbsp 0% plain greek yogurt
1 whole Green Onion finely chopped
Sriracha Sauce to taste
salt/pepper to taste
In a food processor, combine 1/2 the avocado chunks, cottage cheese, greek yogurt, a little salt/pepper and some sriracha sauce to taste and mix until smooth. (If you are lazy like me, you can just mash everything together decently well with a fork, haha).
Putting it together:
In a medium bowl, combine your egg whites & egg. Before adding in the tuna, stir it into the sauce you created and then add the tuna/sauce mixture to the eggs along with the leftover avocado chunks. Mix well and sprinkle with green onion. Give it one last toss and top with additional sriracha sauce as desired. Enjoy!

Alrightyyyy soo, just wanted to share a dessert that is something you can make when you really want to indulge but still feel good about it…I'm not going to lie and say it's low calorie but I can tell you one thing..IT'S WORTH IT. So save some room in your macros or just throw your macros out the window all together for one night just to enjoy this warm chocolatey, rich, peanutbuttery little bowl of amazingness….
P.S Did I mention this is almost 100% paleo?
Serves 1 (or 2 if you can resist eating the entire thing)
1/4 cup almond flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp PB2
1/4 tsp baking powder
dash of salt
1/2 tbsp Truvia sweetener plus more to taste (could sub another granulated sweetener)
1 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 ripe mashed banana
2 tbsp egg whites
1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tbsp white chocolate PB & Co peanut butter (or just regular peanut butter)(this is optional but highly recommended!!)
0.25 ounce almonds (about 5 almonds chopped)
1 tbsp PB2 mixed w/ 2 drops vanilla extract, dash of sweetener & enough water to become “pourable”
Directions: Spray a medium microwavable bowl/ramekin with pam or olive oil spray and combine all dry ingredients then add in wet ingredients and stir until batter is smooth(add your sweetener last so you can see how much is necessary!). Heat your White chocolate or regular peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds then swirl it into your batter. Place in the microwave for about 1min and 30 sec. or longer if needed (although you don't want to overbake this! You actually just want the top cooked but the bottom a little undercooked so it's extra goey and delicious!). Once finished, top with your PB2, dig in and devour! Enjoy!!

Okay..okay..just kidding, for those who just haveee to know..
Goodmorning! Ready for a delish natural vitamin/fibre/protein packed smoothie to start your day?? I totally made up the name for this by using LEO as a cute short form. The actual full name would have been Stawberry Mango Lettuce, Egg white & Oatmeal smoothie so I thought I'd make it easier on you all and shorten it like we do with BLT. haha. 🙂 So I know to some this combination of flavours sounds weird and not to appealing but if you've never tried a smoothie with these ingredients before, then your in for a surprise! The oat flavour pairs really well with the fruit and the romaine blends so you hardly know it's there, covered by the sweet taste of strawberry and mango. Plus egg whites are a great source of protein without adding any flavour. Overall I loved the tangy/sweet taste of this shake! I will be making it again! Let me know if you try it :).
Serves 1-2 (This makes a lot! so you could probably turn it into 2 servings if you'd like!)
-1/2 cup liquid egg whites
-1 cup frozen strawberries(140g)
-3/4 cup frozen mango(140g)
-7-8 leaves of romaine lettuce(100g)
-2 tbsp large flake or rolled oats
-1 tbsp flax seed
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 cup water (more or less depending on how thick you like your smoothie)
-1/8 tsp xanthan gum (optional but recommended for a thicker smoothie!)
-Optional: pinch of sweetener of choice(I didn't add any but you can if you like your smoothies sweeter!)
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a blender until very smooth! Serve in a bowl and eat with a spoon or a cup with a straw, whichever way it will be delicious! Enjoy!
Hey guys, if you are feeling tired and run down before your workouts, don't turn straight to artificial supplements and pre-workouts! First try this delicious smoothie. It gives a great energy boost naturally and lots of important vitamins and minerals all packed into a delicious sweet treat! It's great right before a workout or as a filling breakfast to start your day! Let me know what you think :).
-1/2 cup raw liquid egg whites (pasteurized)
-1 ripe frozen banana(120g)
-1/2 cup frozen mango(70g)
-1/2 cup frozen peaches(70g)
-6 large leaves of romaine lettuce chopped(90g)
-1/2 cup-2/3 cup water(depending on how much you need to blend, mine worked with a little over 1/2 cup)
-1 tsp flax seed
-Optional: few drops of vanilla extract, few drops of coconut extract, stevia/truvia or another sweetener such as honey to taste.)
Directions: Place all ingredients in your blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy! *Note* blend a little longer than usual so the romaine gets completely blended with no little pieces.

Today I had some amazing oats, recipe idea curtsey of Nutritionist in the Kitch. I changed it up a bit by using almond butter and blueberries for topping but kept the base the same. This recipe is simple and delicious and you can easily customize it to your own tastes! It is also high protein and very filling! Perfect for an active day ahead! The oats are so creamy and delicious, you would never know their are egg whites in there!
-3/4 cup water (add more or less based on the consistency you like)
-1/2 tsp cinnamon
-1/4 tsp salt
-1 tsp flax seed (optional)
-1/3 cup large flake oats(not quick cooking or instant!)
-1/4 cup egg whites
-2-3 drops stevia sweetener (or another sweetener to taste)
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tbsp almond butter
-1/4 cup frozen blueberries mixed with 1/2 tsp sweetener heated in a microwave until hot
-Additional cinnamon for topping
-2 tbsp Almond milk (again optional but recommended!)
Directions: In a small pot bring first four ingredients to a boil. Once boiling, stir in 1/3 cup of oats, cover and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for 5-7 minutes and stir occasionally until oats have soaked up a little more than half the water. Next pour in your egg whites and whisk quickly, cooking for 3-4 minutes until oats begin to thicken and mixture becomes creamy. Take off the heat, stir in sweetener/vanilla and top with your almond butter and blueberries, add a drizzle of almond milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Enjoy!
