My Weekly Meal Prep Menu : Aug 14-18 (vegetarian & 21 Day Fix approved)

"Vegetarian-21-day-fix-recipes"

Hey, friends! Welcome to my weekly meal prep! Each week, to make sure I'm staying on top of my health and budget goals, I will create a meal plan and then spend a few hours on Sundays prepping for the days to come. Meal prepping is amazing; it saves me so much time and money. I prep enough food for Monday breakfast to Friday midday (post-workout). I leave my Friday nights & weekends free but keep staples in my house, such as eggs and extra veggies, so I can make quick meals when needed. [Want more inspiration? Check out my week ONE and week TWO  and week THREE menus!] I eat 5-6 small meals each day, roughly every 3-4 hours. This way, I never feel overly full or hungry; I'm content and have consistent energy. By eating…

10 Recipes to Bring to your Memorial Day Party

"10-Recipes-to-Bring-to-your-Memorial-Day-Party"

This post includes 10 Recipes to Bring to your Memorial Day Party! Guys. Can you believe it's already the end of MAY? Where has the time gone! I can't be alone here thinking that it was just Christmas..?! I feel like I need to explain for the silent airwaves that have been taking over GPL lately. Life sometimes has a way of getting away from us, but I've had SO many exciting things going on. I can't wait to fill you all in! For one, I bought a HOUSE! Whaaat! I bought Dj flying lessons and held my breath while going up with him for the first time above Jacksonville. We've taken weekend/extended trips to Charlotte (again), Savannah, and so much more. This weekend we're headed to Dallas! [video width="360" height="640" mp4="http://www.greenpalatelife.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_3859.mp4"][/video] There's so…

Chocolate Walnut Protein Fudge – Super Bowl Goodies Series

Chocolate Walnut Protein Fudge

      And just like that, we've come to day 7 of my 7 days of Super Bowl goodies series! This week just flew by and really refocused my motivation to play around in the kitchen and post new recipes on a more consistent basis! As a series finale, I thought I'd end it on a sweet note while keeping it nice + healthy (not that I don't adore you, slow cooker lava cake) with some protein fudge! As far as protein powders go, I love the taste of chocolate Shakeology in baking. [I used it in these chocolate covered almond protein balls too!] I always go through a friend to buy Shakeo, and if you're looking to get some, you can find it HERE! If the price is a little too high…

7 Layer Greek Dip – Super Bowl Goodies Series

7 Layer Greek Dip

        I'm the [self-proclaimed] queen of dips. I love them! I love how easy they are to make, how there are always tons of variations and new combos to try, and I am really a fan at how everyone seems to gravitate towards them at any social gathering. I tend to stick with the classic favorites. Like my recipes for: Skinny 7 Layer Taco Dip Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip Protein-Packed French Onion Dip Homemade Spicy Guacamole Creamy Roasted Hummus But I've been on a HUGE yogurt sauce kick, so I played around with the idea to incorporate it into a dish to this years Super Bowl, and wahhla! Greek Dip was born + I.Am.Obsessed. I tend to favor dips and foods that have multiple levels of flavor, so since this dip…

Low-Sugar Strawberry Cucumber Cocktail – Super Bowl Goodies Series

Low-Sugar Strawberry Cucumber Cocktail

          It wouldn't truly be a super bowl series of recipes if I didn't add in a cocktail in here, am I right? I'm a big supporter of happy hour, but I also need to find a balance with cocktails. I love the fruity drinks, but absolutely hate the headache that comes with those fruity drinks. So, to cut back on that 'sugar hangover', I've started to make a lot of my own cocktails with swaps to lower them in calories, but also sugar. (When I go out to a bar, I swear by grapefruit vodka + water + a lemon wedge.) When I was up in South Carolina for my little sister's graduation, she got me hooked on Effen Cucumber Vodka. I love the subtle taste of cucumber mixed…
