Yesterday my boyfriend and I went out to dinner at Red Lobster. I ended up eating two of their biscuits, ugh. They are so horrible for you, but they are delicious. I haven't had them in a really long time (or white bread/flour at all for that matter), so I shouldn't feel too bad about it. I also got a garden salad with no dressing (I never use dressing, I usually always use fruit to sweeten up my salads). For dinner I got half a serving of wood fire grilled tilapia, steamed broccoli, and wild rice. It was very good! I really like tilapia. It is such a mild fish and it absorbs flavors very well. If you haven't tried it yet, I really suggest you do!
After dinner we went over to the grocery store. I needed several things and I got paid today so I splurged on a couple things I have wanted for a while.
After I got home, I decided to make a recipe I had seen on Instagram (I get a ton of recipes and ideas from that phone App, I must say I am addicted). This one was banana protein muffins, from user msheard13.
- 1 whole ripe banana
- 3/4 cup egg whites
- 1/2 plain low fat greek yogurt
- 3/4 cup of oats
- 2 scoops of vanilla whey protein
- 12-14 packs of stevia (I used 12)
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
For one of these delicious bad boys it is about 60-75 calories. They are great for pre or post workout and taste lovely. I plan on topping some of them with peanut butter and nuts, or some non-fat greek vanilla yogurt and some banana slices. I put some in the freezer so they would keep longer.
I hope you try them!
