Chocolate Mint Protein Shake

Unsweetened iced tea is a wonderful no-calorie drink alternative,  and adding it to a smoothie is brilliant! If you are a Mint Chocolate lover this shake is for you. Instead of adding artificial mint flavoring, steep a mint tea bag (or two for extra flavor) for five minutes and you will get the perfect minty…

Oatmeal Pancakes

They are the perfect combination of protein and carbohydrates. The egg whites are high quality protein sources, and the oats are a carbohydrate of low glycemic index, that assist in lowering cholesterol, controlling glucose, reducing appetite and aids in weight loss.

Chia seeds are great to control hunger because they retain six times their weight in water. They are super high in calcium (they have more calcium than milk), rich in fiber and Omega 3!

6 Chicken Breast- 4 Ways- 30 Minutes- 12 Meals

We have all heard that preparation is the key for any plan. Is not a secret that when we have great options available it will be easier to stick to a plan and will pass on the options that are not that good, and that can keep us away to reach our goal

Chilean Sea Bass

I like to make it this way (using that green steamer that you will see in the pictures below) because is fast, mess-free and odorless! What else can you ask for?

Almond Milk

Clean Fridge Dinner

Eggplants Canoes
