Bacon Wrapped Chicken Drumsticks

Mmmmm. Bacon. Need I say more? No, I don’t, but I will, because if anything can make me wax poetic, it’s bacon.

So here’s my bacon haiku:

Bacon wrapped chicken,
So tasty. Now let’s press play.
P90x rocks.

That was deep. =D
Clearly, bacon makes everything better. Tastily marinated chicken …

Joe’s Power P90x Protein Bars (No Nuts!)

Can you have too many ways to save money on P90x? I think not. Thus, I’m pleased to share another reader-contributed recipe for homemade P90x protein bars! I’m especially excited about this one because I’ve received a bunch of emails from people asking how to omit the peanut butter and/or nuts from …

Whole Chicken


Hi folks!
Since I’m making you wait a few more days for the P90x menu and shopping list ebook, I thought I’d at least give you a new recipe to chew on in the meantime! I’m nice like that. =)

Whole chickens have always terrified me. In a culinary sense, and in a …

Minestrone Soup

Growing up I hated sandwiches. Weird, I know! I actually didn’t discover a sandwich I liked until I married my hubby and he made me a delicious sandwich with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. And of course, now I’m addicted to Tomato, Basil, and Mozzerella Sandwiches, so I guess I’m a poster-child for trying new things even when you previously …

Slow Cooker Chili

Well, I’ve done it! I’ve perfected my vegan slow cooker chili recipe. 🙂 Yesterday my family celebrated our annual holiday – Thanksmas! As the name implies, it is a cross between Thanksgiving and Christmas. (The name also implies that my family is extremely cheesy. I won’t argue with you there.) I was hosting, but due …

Italian Polenta

Today’s recipe is less of a recipe, and more of a serving suggestion! I recently learned that polenta (aka corn grits) can be served Italian-style in the place of pasta. So you basically cook the polenta, and then serve it with some tasty sauce on top. I served it with my Meat Spaghetti Sauce over …

Black Bean Burgers (and the Grumpy Vegan!)

I’ve never been much of a vegi-burger type person (or as you know, a vegi person in general), but lately I’ve been considering cutting out meat and dairy. This is a very depressing statement for me, and I’m very grumpy about it! LOL. It has nothing to do with philosophical problems with cruelty to animals …

Creamy Tofu Pesto with Artichokes and Mushrooms

OK, guys. I’ve made a super exciting discovery! (Well, exciting as food discoveries go. I have to take my thrills where I can get them!) Remember how in the Creamy Pesto and Kielbasa recipe I was a little concerned about adding yogurt to my Spinach Pesto in order to add creaminess, because it adds that …

Barley Vegetable Soup

You know me. Vegis and I have a love-hate relationship. OK, so mostly hate. 😉 But nevertheless, my hubby and I are eating them, because you have to eat your vegetables when you do P90x! So here is another not-terrible way to eat your vegetable servings. I know, such a glowing recommendation for my own …

Danielle’s Kicked Up Stuffed Peppers

So Danielle totally read my mind. I have been thinking for some time that a stuffed bell pepper recipe was missing from this site, but I have been too lazy to get off my butt and come up with one! Boy am I glad for my laziness now, because Danielle did the work for me, …

Christy’s Whole Wheat Crepes

OK guys, this is another super exciting one! The whole wheat crepe is an awesome invention, because it is so thin that it is not much on the carb front, and yet it can be filled with oh-so-many tasty fillings. Make them sweet, and they are breakfast or dessert crepes – fill them with meat …

Healthy Mac and Cheese!

Woot!!! 🙂

Did you ever think you’d get yummy comfort food like this during P90x?! 🙂 I always thought “healthy mac and cheese” was an oxymoron – but this recipe creates a scrumptious ooey gooey baked mac and cheese that I would eat any day of the week, even without P90x…now I’ll never go back!

Creamy Pesto with Kielbasa

Imagine my exceeding great joy today when I discovered that kielbasa, one of my favorite meat ingredients of all time, comes in a lean turkey variety, 95% fat free! Woot! I’m really starting to love how turkey has been turned into a parody of all of my favorite pork products… 😉 I’ve checked the …

OK, folks. For those of you asking for bulk, make-ahead P90x recipes, this is one that you can prepare ahead and freeze either cooked or raw. We don’t really get of tired olives and Feta at our house, so I decided that olive and Feta turkey burgers were long overdue!

Ingredients:

Easy BBQ Chicken

This is an awesome, easy, delicious protein source. Baking the chicken in a foil pouch makes for moist, juicy chicken. My hubby takes this to work for lunch and he says that all of his friends are jealous because it smells so good. Wouldn’t they be surprised to learn that it …
