Cucumber and Citrus Infused Water

I still remember the most relaxing day I’ve ever experienced. It was my birthday, and my hubby gave me a trip to a day-spa. I went with my friend, and all day we sat in the hot tub, periodically leaving it for massages and facials. I have never experienced a more luxurious day, before or …

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.

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 …

Lemon Steamed Broccoli

This is an easy, flavorful way to prepare broccoli. Neither my hubby nor I are fans of vegis, overall, but when you’re trying to pack in P90x vegetable servings, they’re a must! lol. This steamed broccoli recipe we don’t mind too much. (Such high praise, I know! lol) Sometimes …

Spinach Pesto

One of the hardest parts of the first phase of P90x (or any low-carb diet, for that matter) is that you end up missing complex flavors. Sauces tend to be the first thing to go. This pesto is the antidote to that!!

Ingredients for Pesto Sauce: 1 cup spinach 1 cup fresh basil 1 clove …

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.

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