These are the protein pancakes I make and travel with. They keep in a baggie well, can be topped with sugar free syrup and berries or ate alone. Good for a snack or with an omelette for breakfast.

This is a great side item with chicken or fish. You get good carbs and with a protein it makes for a super meal to build good lean muscles and burn off fat. These are the types of carbs you want to have at night!

I make this as before bed snack each night. It is easy to make and full of good protein. The nutrition info here is not accurate...protein should be higher and the carbs should be lower.

This is an easy and quick recipe. The macros are off a tad because I didn't have the fat grams and carbs for the sausage but the cals are right.

I love this for a sweet treat in the afternoon. It has some carbs for energy and it has plenty of protein. You can use it in the evening too if you eat it at least 1.5 hours before bed.

This is a good way to get in something sweet with your meal AND get in some healthy carrots. I love to use this post-workout with some chicken or flank to refuel muscles.

This is a great dish to have mixed in with a protein and spinach or protein and carb based meal. It's low in cals, filling, and just enough sweet to add some flair.

I serve this with a protein and if I'm extra hungry I mix my protein source in this and then put it all on top of 3 cups of spinach tossed in balsamic vinegar.

This homemade alternative to store-bought granola bars, is a good source of protein, fiber and healthy fats. Tasty and so simple to make! A quarter cup of raisins (not included here) also make a yummy addition!
