In At home cooking, Breakfast, clean food, fashion, get the look, popular recipes, Protein breakfast, Uncategorized On May 20, 2014 4 Comments

Hello lovely friends! Hope everyone had a fabulous & safe Memorial Weekend! I spent the weekend in Santa Barbara & Los Olivos for a little wine tasting. It really was great to get away for a few days. Los Olivos is one of my FAVORITE weekend getaways.

So, if ever out that way…some great wineries to stop at include:

***COQUELICOT

***RUSACK

***QUPE

***SARLOOS

***KOEHLER 

***CARHARTT

***STOLPMAN FAMILY VINEYARDS

Anyway…just thought I’d share a few of my top! ūüėČ Moving into this new week, (since the past three days have been gluttonous) I’m back on track with my diet.

TODAY will be a very LOW CARB! Lol, ¬†this is what my extreme ass does when coming off a HIGH CARB, I don’t give a fakkkk weekend. I go the other extreme.

*egg whites…chicken breast…lettuce. no joke.

Todays recipe, is one that I made last week, but didn’t get the chance to share yet. I just cant get enough of pineapple lately, so I’ve been puttin’ that shit on everrrrrrythang! As you know, I often find inspiration for trying new experiments through my Instagram friends.

Making this¬†NOW!¬†I had all the ingredients, plus a few subs, so I got to mixin. OOHHHH, & if you’re VEGAN,¬†click here¬†, she posts the vegan alternative!

You can find the recipe above. The Instructions could not be EASIER!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 *
  2. GREASE A SMALL LOAF PAN OR ANY CUTE/SMALL PIE PAN;) (I use coconut oil spray from TJs)
  3. MIX ALL DRY INGREDIENTS IN A MEDIUM BOWL.  (Protein, coconut flour, shredded coconut, baking powder, cinnamon, pinch of salt)
  4. NOW ADD WET INGREDIENTS. (egg whites, vanilla extract, SF honey or agave)
  5. FOLD IN 1/8 CUP CHOPPED PINEAPPLE
  6. COOK FOR 12-15 MINS. (She says 30 min, but mine cooked much faster in my breville convection oven.)

The best part of this whole thing….is eggggzactly that. This recipe is for¬†1 serving!!!¬†That means…you get to eat the¬†WHOLE thing! Ok, here’s the breakdown of the nutritional facts.

REMEMBER: SUBTRACT THE DIETARY FIBER FROM THE CARBS TO CALCULATE “NET” CARBS.

(Carbs that come from fiber have a minimal affect on blood sugar)

So, the reason I’ve been quite busy….well, I’ve been killin it at the gym # 1, lol, but also because I’ve had some of my family from Argentina visiting! Woohoo;) These are some of my FAVORITE people in this world, I swear. When I’m not at the salon, or the gym…I’m with Family:)

This past weekend we took them to Sequoia National Park. This place is stunning! I told them to get geared up for snow……but they had no idea what I meant. Lol
Here we are…before the storm..chains…and almost getting stuck on the mountain. No bigs. Happy as pigs in shit.
20140211-185222.jpg
Stunning views on the way up.
20140211-185229.jpg
My beautiful people. How cute are they;) awwwwww.
20140211-185242.jpg
Oh you know, just tryin to get a bit creative with the shots. Lol.
We jumped in the car after this stop, and that’s when shit got real.
Did I mention…..THEY’VE NEVER SEEN SNOW!? We were staying at the Wuksachi Lodge, in the heart of Sequoia.
20140211-185256.jpg
Finally, 4.5 hrs of driving…a bit of car sickness, and a lil nap…we arrived!
Please take notice of the gear they’ve got on. Hahahahaa. I just love them…they fuckin showed up in jeans, and converse!!!!! lol. What r ya gonna do!.
20140211-185311.jpg
I think they thought, “oh, we’ll see some snow capped trees, see a little snow on the ground…nothin major..” Bahahahahaha.
Reality check y’all. Snow to your KNEES in some parts ! My poor cousins….2 pairs of socks…then wrapped their feet in plastic bags…then put their converse on ! Lol
20140211-185321.jpg
I haven’t see this much snow in a reallllllly long time! It was soooooo beautiful. I highly recommend this weekend trip to all of you. especially if you live in LA, where it always feels like summer ūüėČ
20140211-185332.jpg

20140211-185405.jpg

The lodge was stunning and our room had huge windows where we could look our and have amazing views of those beautiful trees. If I wasn’t sledding outside or eating snow, I was doing this right herrrrrrrrrrrrr!
A glass of red in front of the fire.
Quite possibly one of my favorite things to do on this earth.
#1: be cozy
#2: with a glass of Pinot
#3: by a fire

20140211-185427.jpg
On the second day, we headed to see the big Redwoods. Wow…..
Seriously SPECTACULAR!
I hadn’t been to sequoia since I was like 14 or 15, and when I went, it was fall or spring, so I had never experienced this view before. The biggest and baddest tree around y’all. I give you GENERAL SHERMAN.
20140211-185438.jpg
Totally obsessed and amazing…now my feet were frozen. It was time to get back to my lovely LA APARTMENT. LOL

Breakfast PROTEIN Cookies. 84 calories per serving!!!

Hey guys!!!! Hope all of you had a fabulous weekend! For those of you who are in the Mid West or even East Coast….I’m so sorry for that nasty weather you’ve had:( ugh. I honestly don’t even know what that’s like. I’ve been fortunate enough to grow up most of my life, in sunny southern Cali, where the sun shines almost all year round:) I consider myself very lucky, trust me.

As you know, I realllllly fell off during the November and December, but I assure you that I am slowly getting back into the my healthy lifestyle. I suffered from a bit of binge eating the last couple months, yes I admit, ¬†and I didn’t know how to control it. Deep breaths, I tell myself.
I’ve decided to change a few things about From Fries To Fit in the new year…one of them being, more dedication and focus on healthy recipes. As a new health blogger, I’ve noticed myself becoming a bit bored with trying to keep up with writing about fitness.
Listen, I’m into it, I swear. It’s just that I’ve found that I’m not that into writing about fitness. I will continue to share some workout stuff in my posts, but the main focus will be on RECIPES! with that, I will be including all of the macros for each recipe. Yeeaaayyyyy!!!

I’ve realized that my main issue…is with food. Yep. I can’t work out all day long. The one thing I need help with is controlling my food and making better decisions in general.
So, with that said…I hope you enjoy all these amazing new recipes coming to you from yours truly;)

Today, I bring you….dnnnnn dndunnnnnnnnn!!!

BREAKFAST PROTEIN COOKIES!

20140113-202012.jpg

This has become an absolute favorite of mine! Sometimes good ol’ eggies just don’t cut it.

#1: This recipe is soooo damn easy, you could do that shit with your eyes closed!

#2: The flavor is rich in vanilla and absolutely kills the craving to have the other sugary naughty ones.

Those little brown things…those are carob chips (could also use sugar free chocolate chips, or 85% dark chocolate) . Now, thats optional, and would add a few extra calories to the mix, but they add loads of flavor and frankly….WORTH IT!

20140113-202019.jpg

The one thing you MUST REMEMBER when cooking with protein powders, is that, they cook very fast. If not careful and aware, these babies can get tough. I say…try as couple batches:)
I made mine in a Breville convection oven, and they were done in literally 6 1/2 minutes!!!!!!
Ok….you ready for the bestest part of this!????

I finally got to sport my new Billabong 4:3 wetsuit that the boo got me for Xmas!!! Yeay! I was amazing to finally not feel freezing in that water. We surfed for a bit, but after my head started pounding ( maybe cuz we had loadzzzzz of wine the night before) I got out and was ready for snacky time. My surfing is still pretty shit. Lol. A day at a time;)

20140113-202110.jpg
I’m always VERY prepared¬†when¬†going to the beach.I bring a table. (I know…) I stock up on healthy snacks, like nuts, fruit, turkey roll-ups and of course a bit of sparkling wine;) We met up with some friends for an afternoon picnic and headed home.
I live for Sundays……sighhhhhhhhhh
Oh, and guess what…..
I met Marcin’s parents this weekend, and they were beyond cute! They made us a fab dinner along great wine, and (so thoughtful) a sugar free dessert! The sweetest couple.

Everyday, I strive for balance. When anxiety seems to take over me, I must remember these words. Take a few breaths…and make life less complicated. I hope 2014 will be full of this:)
