Craving something sweet?

If you are craving something sweet and filling I would recommend trying my recipe for an Oatmeal Mocha Cappuccino Peanut Butter/Banana Shake!! It’s a long name but you can taste all the flavors!!

1 scoop Optimum Nutrition Mocha Cappuccino Whey Protein

1 1/2 tablespoon of peanut butter (whatever you would like, if you are geared more towards the healthiest, I would suggest home made peanut butter)

1 small banana

1 bag of instant oatmeal

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup cold water

1 1/2 tablespoon of plain Greek yogurt

Blend it and you got a taste of mocha peanut goodness with a hint of banana and chewy texture! It’s delicious.

1. Left over quinoa with mushrooms-for the quinoa I let two cups of water with half a tablespoon of chicken broth flavor and set it to boil. I dropped the quinoa and mushrooms lowered the heat and let it sit for 20 minutes. The quinoa sucks the water up and expands.
2. A few mozzarella cheese bits
3. 2 eggs

Delicious!!!

Spanish Brown Rice Recipe

For those of you who love their rice. Thid a great way to make some tasty rice!

1 TBSP Olive Oil
1 Cup Long Grain Brown Rice
2 Cups Beef Broth
1 Cup Tomato Sauce
1 Cup Chopped Onion
1 Red Bell Pepper Chopped
2 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Cumin
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt

Directions
Heat oil in skillet over Med heat. Add onion, bell pepper, and rice. Sautee for about 5 minuted or until veggies are tender and rice is toasted. Add beef broth, tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder and salt. Bring to a boil. Once rice is boiling, cover with a tight lid and cook about 45 minutes or until rice is done.

I use a little bit of chilli powder because I don’t really like the way it came out the first time I made it with 2 tsp of it. I also use those 10 minutes rice that come in packs of 4 at the grocery store.  I believe they’re from sara lee. You cook all your veggies first then drop the rice after. This is very easy to make the only thing is that it takes a little longer to cook. Lemme know if you have any questions or send me a picture of the rice you make!
