Little Protein French toast squares topped off with strawberries, blueberries, coconut, pecans and mint. Healthier than a lot of French toast meals but still sweet, filling and feels like a treat.

I love having something sweet in my salad and this one is loaded with sweet delicious plum, blueberries, dried apricots and cranberries. I try to limit the amount of dried fruit I eat but I feel like they really add a lot to salad so it's definitely worth it for me in this instance.

Spaghetti squash is a really great low carb option for bulking up any meal because it adopts the flavour of other foods/seasoning really well. Plus it's super easy to make. You can bake, boil, roast, grill, crock pot, or microwave it.

Kinda sorta taco salads have been on the menu regularly lately. Love how flavourful they are and that I can incorporate basically whatever veggies I have on hand. Do you have a go to salad?

Breakfast was a smoothie bowl topped off with blackberries, raspberries, hazelnuts and chia seeds. What did you have for breakfast today?

Fool proof meal of chicken, veggies and 7 grain rice blend. Hits the spot (and the macros).

Delicious protein waffles for my post workout meal topped off with blueberries, bananas, and walden farms sugar free syrup. Great way to kick off Saturday afternoon.

Fall is here and that means soup! (Yay) This is my first bowl of butternut squash soup for the season but it won't be the last! Also having a sweet mixed green salad with apple, orange, cranberries, dates, asparagus and walnuts.

Next time I'm probably gonna top this soup off with some Greek yogurt and green onions. I'd love some new ideas though, do please share. What are your favourite soups/toppings?

So I'm feeling a little under the weather lately, but I'm letting that be an excuse. (And neither should you). Meals like this one are super quick and easy and packed with the macro and micro nutrients you need! Way better for your than that can of chicken noodle soup that people traditionally go to.

I have such a sweet tooth! I love all things chocolatey and when I treat myself I often choose some sort of baked good or chocolate treat! This version of snowball cookies fit into macros pretty flawlessly though. I did switch out some ingredients (sugar, milk, butter..) for lower calorie options but they still taste amazing and are about 100 calories a treat. They're mainly oats so they seriously help demolish both the hunger and the sweet tooth. Are these 100% healthy? No. Are they a yummy treat made of mostly healthy ingredients that I can always find room for in my macros? Yes!

Most people know that filling up your plate with vegetables is a great way to cut some calories and increase your intake of micronutrients. One swap I enjoy a lot is riced cauliflower. It's about 25 calories and 5 grams of carbs a cup as opposed to brown rice coming in at about 220 calories and 46 grams of carbs it's a great way to fill your plate while keeping your diet on track. I love rice, and carbs in general but for those carb cyclers, macro hoarders and people who just love a brimming plate (like me) this is a great option! What's your go to lower calorie or higher nutrient swap?

Keeping things simple is totally underrated. When you're busy or not feeling motivated or if you straight up just dislike cooking, salad topped with protein of some kind is a great option! Tired of salad? Change your vegetables up! Add guacamole, salsa, fruit. Very limited time? Buy your favourite pre-cut veggies or salad mix. Taking 30 minutes to prep protein will save you time and hassle in the long run and help you hit your macros!
