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 …

Banana Sandwich

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one, other than YUM. Oh, and be warned that this sucker is intense! You might want to save it until you have a dairy serving to spare for a glass of milk! 🙂

Ingredients:

1 whole wheat English muffin 2 Tb. peanut butter 1/2 banana …

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 …

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! …

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 …

Mandarin Salad with Candied Almonds

I am so excited about this one, guys, because not only is it a delicious salad, it is a recipe for P90x CANDY! Woot! Can’t argue with that. This is my mom’s famous salad that she takes to potlucks, except I used honey to candy the almonds instead of plain sugar.

Ingredients for Candied Almonds:

Chocolate Filled Strawberries

You’re not imagining things – there really is chocolaty goodness oozing out of the middle of these strawberries! And yes, this is a legit P90x dessert! 🙂 These chocolate-filled strawberries use sugar-free fat-free pudding, but you’d never know they were good for you. Being good never tasted so bad (for you, that is!). Happy Friday. …

Angela’s Protein Pancakes

Ok, all together now – “Thank you, Angela!!” =) This P90x protein pancake recipe that fellow P90xer Angela sent me is SO good! I’m usually a Bisquick snob – I was raised on it, so all other pancake recipes taste weird. But these are really delicious! I didn’t have plain protein …

Cinnamon Baked Apple w/ Walnuts

It is with great pleasure that I must add the dessert category to myp90xnutritionplan.com! Woohoo! I’ve noticed that P90x desserts are hard to come by. They really don’t address the sweet tooth much in the nutrition plan. Well, this cinnamon baked apple feels like a dessert but completely fits into your portion …

Chicken Salad Sandwich – Two Ways

Nothing says summer quite like chicken salad! As you’re working on your summer “beachbody” 😉 with P90x, this chicken salad recipe will fit right into your portion approach. I’ve done this salad two ways, a sweet version that focuses on fruit servings, and a tangy version that focuses on vegi servings. …

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Shish Kabobs

Happy Friday before a holiday! In honor of the three-day weekend, I’m posting my husband’s favorite meal. This was actually his favorite meal that I make, even before I added it to my P90x recipes. It’s the one he always requests when company is coming over. It didn’t take much to “X” it …

Ants on a Log

Who says Ants on a Log are just for kids? LOL! The P90x nutrition guide suggests peanut butter and celery as a snack – I just added raisins, so it’s now a partial fruit serving as well.

Ingredients:

1 stalk celery 1 Tb. peanut butter 1 mini-box raisins (approx 30 raisins …
