{tasty tuesday}

One thing that is really important to me is my family sitting and eating together for supper. Probably because I was raised that way, I have tons of great memories that come from my family sitting around the dinner table as I was growing up. We all took a break from the day and came together to share a meal, almost every night. I want my boys to grow up and remember how nice it was to have that time with their family.

Here are a couple of recipes that I have recently made. Besides being tasty, they were both quick and easy! Supper from start to finish in under 30 minutes, and even better not very many dishes to clean after! {I hate washing dishes, HATE it!}

First up, Italian Wonderpot from Budget Bytes. This was really good, next time I would love to add grilled or baked chicken and maybe some artichoke hearts {olives would be great in this too, but I’m the only one that likes them}. Head over to Budget Bytes for the recipe!20140211-093620.jpgMy boys love orange chicken, so when I found a recipe for Skinny Orange Chicken I had to try it. This recipe is from Gimme Some Oven and worth giving a try!

Any recipes you have tried recently that were keepers? I’m always on the search for quick, kid friendly meals, that are also full of nutrients! If you have one, send it my way!!

{waffles}

ImageI’ve been making lots of protein pancakes, but have yet to bust out the waffle maker…until now! These protein packed waffles were so good, quick, and easy to make. Protein waffles are now a must in my weekly eats!

I set my waffle maker to heat level of 3 (it goes up to 4), mixed all of the ingredients for the waffles together and then made two waffles {or you could make one really big one}

For the topping I mixed the regular pb2 with the caramel sauce and almond milk {start with 1 Tb. of milk and increase to get desired thickness} and plopped it on top. Then I mixed the chocolate Pb2 with almond milk {I made the first sauce thicker and then this one thinner} and drizzled over all of it. Topped it off with some raw coconut flakes and dug in! These were seriously good!

The macros for these waffles with the toppings are:

Calories: 423 I Protein: 60g I Carbs: 25g I Fat: 12g

Go make some healthy, protein packed waffles!
Peace Out~
