4 Recipes on Repeat + Last Week’s Workouts

Good morning! Happy March 1st and National Nutrition Month! Speaking of which, please check out our first post over on the Designed to Fit Nutrition blog: Why You Need a Nutrition Coach!

Ok, so I’m totally one of those people who goes through phases with food. For instance, I’ll be super into hot sauce and put it on everything for two weeks straight. Then, I get bored with it and then I’m onto nutritional yeast or pizza seasoning or something. Right now (if you haven’t noticed), I’m really into buffalo sauce, and I just can’t get enough of it. It actually inspired this post because I’ve eaten the same lunch/dinner like 4 or 5 times in the past week or so. I just love it so much, so I wanted to share that recipe as well as some other recent favorites. And since I’m in the meal planning business and all, I also wanted to share my tips for quick prep, which makes healthy eating that much easier!

recipes on repeat

Buffalo Chicken + Ranch Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 4 ounces ground chicken (or turkey)
  • 1.25 cup steamed broccoli (or Brussels sprouts or okra)
  • 1/2 cup chopped spinach (I used frozen)
  • 2 tbsp buffalo sauce
  • 1 tbsp Ranch dressing

Directions: Cook ground chicken and veggies and then combine with buffalo sauce. Drizzle Ranch on top.

Makes 1 serving

Macros: P 32 C 17 F 11

Prep tips: Cook ground chicken and veggies ahead of time and then just reheat in the microwave before mixing with buffalo sauce and Ranch. This recipe is also really tasty with blue cheese crumbles.

Overnight Carrot Cake Protein Oats

Prep tips: Make multiple batches at once and eat them throughout the week. I also like dividing the recipe in half for snack-size portions, which also make a tasty dessert, especially heated up with a scoop of yogurt on top! 🙂

PB + Banana Rice Cakes

Ingredients:

Directions: Mash banana and combine with powdered peanut butter. Spread on top of rice cakes and sprinkle with cinnamon.

Makes 1 serving

Macros: P 13 C 48 F 2

Burrito Breakfast Bowl

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs, scrambled
  • 1 cup cauliflower rice
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup salsa of your choice
  • 2 tbsp guacamole

Directions: Cook cauliflower rice and combine with black beans and salsa. Top with eggs and guacamole.

Serves 1

Macros: P 20 C 24 F 15

Prep tips: Combine cauliflower rice, beans, and salsa ahead of time in a container with lid. (If using frozen cauliflower rice, just defrost in fridge overnight.) In the morning, heat in the microwave while scrambling the eggs in a pan on the stove top. Top cauliflower rice mixture with eggs and guacamole!
