I find that the clean up is a lot easier if you make them into meatballs instead, and put them on a tinfoil lined baking sheet! I also sometimes add some grated carrott and zuccini. I eat them so frequently that I change up the spices all the time so they seem new again :)

This is Spaghetti squash with Turkey meatballs (recipe above) and a homemade tomato sauce. The sauce is just a large can of diced tomatoes with sauteed peppers, onions and mushrooms…I added garlic and oregano.(simmer as long as you’d like) All served over Spaghetti squash. To cook the squash I poke holes with a fork and put in the microwave a couple of minutes on high so I can cut it in half…then I remove the seeds, season with a little salt and petter and place face side down on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake at 400 for about 20 minutes until when you grate with a fork the pulp comes out in spaghetti like strands :)

Chocolate Snowballs
1/2 cup Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Applesauce
2 packets of whatever sweetener you choose (add extra if taste batter and want it a little sweeter)
1 1/4 cup Oat flour
1 TBSP of Unsweetened Cocoa
Handful of Unsweetened Coconut
Heat the PB and Applesauce in the microwave for 10-15 seconds so it’s easier to mix…then add cocoa, oat flour and sweeetner. Roll into little balls and roll in the coconut. Chill in the refridgerator. Makes 16 small balls
I’ve also made this without the cocoa and it’s super good!! :)

*NOTE If you want a higher Protein content, you can try to replace some of the Oat Flour with some good tasting Protein Powder!! I have never done this, so I would try adding the applesauce slowly and look for the same texture as the original recipe. I can see it getting a lot stickier with PP :)

My go to salad…I used the leftover tomato sauce that I used on the turkey meatballs and spaghetti squash.
My salads are usually just sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers with baked chicken breast and a 1/4 avacado on top of a mix of romaine and spinach! I drizzle balsamic vinegar on top. If I need a litte more protein in my day, I add a couple fork fulls of cottage cheese :)

Protein Pancakes
1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese
1/2 Cup Oatmeal
1/2 Cup Egg Whites
2 packets of sweetener of your choice  ( i like cal brand stevia, if you are using this you literally only need a dash!!)
Dash of Cinnamon
Flax (optional)
Blend all ingredients in the magic bullet or blender until smooth…,cook in a frypan. Makes 2 large Pancakes! Some great add ins would be banana, cocoa, Natural Peanut Butter, etc! :)

My Everyday Oatmeal
1/2 Cup Oatmeal
Dash Cinnamon
2 Packets of Stevia
1 Tbsp of Unsweetened Cocoa
1 Tbsp of Natural Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp of Flax
I cook the oatmeal for 2.5 minutes with the cinnamon, stevia, cocoa, then add the flax and peanut butter once its done so it stirs in nicely!!!!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt
This is a good nighttime snack…lots of protein, not too much sugar.
3/4 Cup Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1 TBSP Natural Peanut Butter
1 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa
Flavored Stevia to Taste
I like everything chocolate, but it’s really good with just the peanut butter as well!!! :)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding
Another good beddtime snack…and awesome if you don’t like cottage cheese, because you’d have no idea it’s in there!!! HAHA
1/2 cup Cottage Cheese
2 packets Stevia
1 TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa
2 TBSP of PB2 or 1 TBSP Natural Peanut Butter
Unsweetened Chocolate Almond milk till desired consistency
Mix all together in the magic bullet or blender. Once again if you don’t like PB, just remove it, or vice versa with the Cocoa!!!

Baked Sweet Potatoes
Cut up as many as you want, season with whatever spices you like ( I like an indian taste so I usually use cumin, paprika, garlic powder, etc.) Bake at 400 degree F for 30 minutes!



Example of My OFFSEASON Diet!!!

COOKIE Dough Bites (From Sarahsskinnyfiber)

1 1/4 cups canned* chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave would be amazing too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder**
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips

* My can was a 400 gram can, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons

** If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.

Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re combined.

Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.

With wet hands, form into 1 1/2″ balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don’t do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes.

Yields about fourteen 1 1/2″ cookie dough balls.

  1. Everything looks great!!! :)Thankyou for sharing!

  2. Awesome recipes!! Great ideas when you want to get creative in the kitchen without sacrificing the eating clean part!!

  3. Thankyou!! As soon as my competition is over, I'm going to experiment a little more with high protein yummy snacks!!! Hopefully I'll come up with some new favourites! ;)

  4. Your recipes inspired me so much, I love everything chocolate too! I made the protein bars- sooo yummy and addicting, the turkey balls turned out good but I subbed 2 whole eggs-don't know if that makes a huge difference? I made the chocolate greek yogurt--realllly bitter! had to add packet and a half of stevia and still bitter...I used the fat-free plain, do you also use that or flavored? Thanks again for the insipirational recipes--gonna make the sweet potatoes and salad/tomato sauce and the chocolate balls-yum

  5. Oh and I added chopped kale and spinach to the turkey balls-really good!

  6. You know, with the protein yogurt, I forgot an item, which is TOTALLY why it is bitter!! I used flavored liquid stevia (12 Drops) Either raspberry flavor or toffee :) Try that and you will like it MUCH better. You can use just regular sweetener or stevia to taste as well. No, I definitely don't use flavored greek yogurt! JUNK!!! Stick with plain and add natural sweeteners :)

    I'm so glad you are liking the recipes and coming up with your own substitutions that sound delish!! I'm going to have to try yours too!!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  7. LOL AHha! ok thanks! I did use the the leftover yogurt in my morning chocolate protein smoothie concoction and it tasted great lol so it did not go to waste!

    I'm making another batch of the the protein bars right now, and they really are the best. I even forgot the almond milk and they still tasted addictingly good :)

  8. Mmmmmm, I haven't made the bars in a while! My mouth is watering just thinking about them!!! :)
