Island Pork Tenderloin

Healthy eaters often turn to chicken as a means of satisfying their protein needs. Don’t forget about pork – the other white meat! It’s easy to prepare and goes a long way. I made this recipe last week and it was a hit the first and second time around!

Banana Protein Pancakes

So if you didn’t notice, I truly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In all my years as a trainer, I’ve never seen a client be successful at losing or maintaining their weight if they were not a breakfast eater.   Starting your day right sets you up for a successful day of eating and choice making in general. However, that doesn’t mean you should just grab anything. Fill your body with high nutrition, low fat food and your body will run like the amazing machine it is.

Cinnamon Muffins

So I have teenagers which means mornings are “fast and furious” around our house. Being boys, they want to sleep until the last possible second meaning that breakfast is either “grab and go” or doesn’t even happen. Since I’m already at work (I leave the house at 5:45 am), chances of them eating something is even less likely. My oldest loves a muffin or loaf bread because it is something that he can throw into a baggy the evening before. I of course would rather them eat something healthier, but I’m a realist after all, so rather than having them skip breakfast altogether, I make it my goal to find ways to make what they will eat just a little bit healthier. This week, my son asked to “Cinnamon Muffins.” Here is my healthier version.
