Keep. It. Simple. Stupid.
Great advice; hurts my feelings every time.
The more complex your strategy, the harder it is to execute. Especially when we are trying to build NEW habits, it is extremely important that we pace ourselves and keep it SIMPLE! This week we wanted to share some great, high protein, high veggie recipes to help you make good choices throughout the day!
Go shopping! You will only need: cottage cheese, plain Greek yogurt, eggs, chicken, tuna, lemons/limes and raw vegetables/avocado.
Classic Cottage Cheese Dip:
Don’t run away yet! Cottage cheese haters must give this dip a try before knocking it! Mix it all together and dip your fresh veggies (carrots, celery, peppers, radishes, broccoli, cauliflower, etc)
- 1 c Cottage Cheese
- 1 c Plain Greek Yogurt
- Dill Weed, Celery Salt, Onion Powder to taste
- tiny pinch of Sugar
** Take the leftover dip and toss in chopped veggies for a high protein salad on the go!
Classic Protein Pancakes:
Who doesn’t love pancakes?! Get funky with your add-ins – berries, cooked apple, peanut butter, raisins, cinnamon, honey – you name it! Blend these three ingredients below to make your batter and bust out the griddle.
- 1/2 c Rolled Oats
- 1/2 c Cottage Cheese
- 3 Eggs
Simple Chicken Salad
Avocado and Plain Greek Yogurt are an excellent swap for the mayonnaise in traditional chicken salad, and dare we say it may have a better texture and taste. Mix it all up for an easy go-to To-Go recipe! (Quantities will depend on desired consistency and how much veggies you add-in)
- Plain Greek Yogurt
- Chopped Chicken
- Onion (preferably red)
- Lime Juice
- Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste
*Add an assortment of Veggies, Craisins, Chopped Almonds – whatever you like! Or swap the Chicken for Tuna and try a whole different flavor profile!*
