Recipe Roundup - What We've Been Cooking Up

Happy Wednesday!  How is your week going?  We are halfway to the weekend.  It has been warmer in DFW lately and for that, I am grateful!  In Monday's post I mentioned protein waffles that we made for breakfast.  I've mentioned a few recipes on the blog lately, and thought I would pull them all together into one post.  These are some of our favorites lately.

 Protein Waffles
I can't take credit for the recipe - it's Mudhustler's Big Ass Waffle. And y'all, it is stupid easy to make.  And...one WHOLE waffle is 3 smart points.  THREE!  That's it.  Here are the basics:

1 scoop quest protein powder (choose your flavor)
1/4 cup Kodiak protein waffle and pancake mix
1 egg white (or 3 tbsp liquid egg white)
2/3 cup cold water

Mix it all together and pour into your waffle iron.  Cook according to your waffle iron's instructions.  So quick and easy.  Next weekend I plan on cooking up a bunch of them and freezing them for quick breakfasts on weekday mornings.


 Shrimp Stir Fry

This one y'all.  I'm taking all the credit for this one.  Easy peasy and 2 smart points.  TWO!  This has been lunch for the past couple of weeks and I'm not mad about it.

1 package frozen shrimp.  I buy frozen deveined, peeled shrimp, with tails off.  
1 package frozen veggies
1 package cauliflower rice
3 tbsp stir fry sauce
chicken stock
1 tbsp olive oil 

1.  Heat your skillet to medium high, add the olive oil and garlic and sautee
2.  Add the shrimp
3.  When the shrimp is halfway cooked, add cauliflower rice and frozen veggies
4.  Add a splash of chicken stock
5.  Cook off most of the water
6.  Add the stir fry sauce
7.  Simmer for a couple more minutes

This makes 4 servings at 3 smart points each.



One of our favorite game day treats.  I LOVE this recipe.  Easy to make and you don't have to feel guilty about eating it.  I find I like it best served warm, but it's also tasty cold.

This recipe is adapted from Domestic Fits' Broccomole Episode

3 cups chopped broccoli
1 jalapeno chopped, seeds removed
1 tsp olive oil
4 oz reduced fat cream cheese (you can also use greek yogurt, tofu, cashew cream...)
1/4 tsp chili powder
1 tbsp cilantro (optional)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
3 cloves garlic (your mileage may vary here - we like it garlicky, use less if you want)

1.  Cook the broccoli in lightly salted water until very soft.   Overcook just a bit, you don't want it to have that al dente bite.  
2.  Drain it well after cooking
3.  Transfer to food processor
4.  Add other ingredients and process until smooth.  If you feel it's not smooth enough, add a bit more olive oil.
5.  Serve with tortilla chips or pita chips.
6.  Enjoy!
