Ingredients: 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 cup grated Parmesan 3/4 cup Light Mayonnaise (or nonfat …

Toasty Roasted Cauliflower (Best Cauliflower EVER)

Best Cauliflower EVER! Toasty Roasted Cauliflower

If you have followed this site for any amount of time, you know that I’m not a veggie person. Sadly, P90x nutrition requires vegetables, and LOTS OF THEM! (If you hate’em like us, try some of these P90x veggie strategies.)

Well here I give you the most …

Basil, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

 

Recently my obsession with the tomato, basil, and mozzarella combo has raised its ugly (tasty?) head. Basil is so cheap during the summer that I bought a massive basil plant and have been eating off of it for weeks. I wanted to make my tomato, basil, and mozzarella sandwich, but it was bugging me how …

Taco Salad

Hi folks!

I know that so many of you run into boredom in the P90x food department, and 90 days is a bit long to eat the same two dinners over and over, no matter how much you like them when you start out. So it’s time for some muscle confusion for the stomach! 😉

BBQ Salmon

So yesterday was a landmark day in our household. My hubby and I (brace yourself) ATE FISH! Yes, the inconceivable happened. For almost two years people have written to me asking me where the fish recipes were on this site, and I wrote back to them with a one-word email: “Yuck!” (Well, maybe I was a bit …

Samantha’s Banana Scrunch Parfait

So I was thinking, “Man, I should get a good parfait recipe on my site, that would be a great addition to a P90x meal plan.” Enter Samantha, who created this very pretty one!

I know that I always say that I was thinking of creating a recipe before someone sends it to me, but …

Happy Thanksgiving (yesterday)! I hope you all had a great one. In honor of Turkey Day, I’m giving you a little sandwich recipe that I am thankful for: the Turkey, Pesto, and Avocado sandwich. Yum! You may have noticed that I’ve been a bit preoccupied with pesto of late. For me, pesto is the new …

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 …

Turkey, Bacon, and Avocado Sandwich

Silly Subway. They act like they’re all special for offering a turkey, bacon, and avocado sandwich, when we could just as easily make a P90x-friendly version for ourselves at home! And the good news? This is not a limited time offer. 😉

Ingredients: 2 slices whole wheat bread 3 oz. avocado 3 oz. turkey 2 …

Sarah’s Hot Diggity-Dawgs

Who knew that hot dogs, potatoes, and cheese could constitute health-food?! Sarah came up with a good one here. I also love how her Tennessee accent comes through in this recipe. I choose to believe that her voice sounds just like this! Thanks for your contribution, Sarah. Take it away!

“I have a new recipe. …

BBQ Tofu and “Baked” Beans

By now you are all aware of my obsession with BBQ sauce. Bullseye Original is a staple in my household…I have a habit of putting it on everything – chicken, meatloaf, quesadillas…even things that just shouldn’t have BBQ sauce on them. lol. Well, here I go again. I’ve heard rumor that, BORG-like, tofu just absorbs …

French Toast

Have you ever wondered why french toast has gotten such a bad rap? It’s just bread, eggs, and milk! The key to this and other similar breakfast foods (pancakes, waffles, etc.) is what you drizzle over them. If you make them with whole wheat bread and egg whites, and keep it to honey or pure …

Grapenuts Berry Crumble

Sorry for the crappy camera-phone picture. Can’t find my battery charger! Anyway, here is another P90x dessert option. I am a huge fan of Grapenuts cereal. Not in its normal teeth-shatteringly-crunchy state, but after it’s been softened by milk and heat. It just seemed like it’d make a perfect ingredient for a “crumble” or cobbler …

Baja Zucchini Boats

Do any of you remember the Baja Potato Boats at Applebees? They were my favorite meal there for years. Then one day I went and they had vanished from the menu. Tragedy!! Applebees has never been the same for me since. Anyway, they were the inspiration for this recipe, even though this recipe tastes nothing …

X-y Oatmeal

Hi guys, d’ya miss me?! Judging from the multitude of forlorn emails I’ve received in the past two weeks, I’m guessing so. (OK, so maybe it was only ONE forlorn email, but I’m assuming that for every one email I receive there are hundreds of you who missed me and were too lazy to write! …

BBQ Chicken Quesadilla

Hiya folks. First of all I wanted to let you know that I won’t be posting for the next week or two – we’ve had a death in the extended family that I need to take some time off to deal with. =/ I’ll start posting again the week of August 18th.

I’ll leave you …

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 …
