Bright White Athleisure + Healthy Eating Recipes










Happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a great week so far! We came to Charleston for a girls weekend yesterday, and it's been so nice being off work for a few days!

I feel like I always talk about Instagram on my blog, but, if you follow me on stories then you may know that I've been following Kayla Itsines 14 day meal plan for the last week. Memorial Day Weekend has gotten a little in the way of following it to a "T", but outside of a few "cheat" meals I've stuck to it accordingly. I've always been really into fitness and trying to eat healthy, but here lately we've been so busy that the eating part of life, was far from healthy. A few of you mentioned interest in seeing some of the recipes on the blog, so today I want to share a couple that have been super easy, tasty, and healthy so far!

Baked Eggs
20g of low fat cheese
2 eggs
Small handful of spinach
2 button mushrooms chopped (1/4 cup)
1/2 medium tomato chopped
2 tbsp water

Preheat oven to 360F, grease ramekin with coconut oil. In a large bowl, add the eggs and water. Whisk to combine. Add the spinach, mushrooms, tomato and stir to combine. Transfer the egg mixture to your ramekin. Top with low fat grated cheese.

Bake in your preheated oven for 15-20 minute or until the egg mixture is cooked and golden. 

This is by far one of my favorite recipes within the plan! I doubled the recipe and made it in an 8X8 baking dish so Shane could have some too. I also cut the bake into four sections, and put it in a to go container so we could take it to work with us for convenience, and it held perfectly! Shane doesn't eat cheese (so weird I know) so I did leave cheese off of half of the bake. Simple, easy, and healthy! We will be incorporating this one into our weekly diet after the plan is over. I added this recipe to the "My Fitness Pal" app, and it contains roughly 150 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 19 grams of protein. 

Avo Smash
Rye Crackers
1 Avocado
60g low fat Feta
1/2 cup of chickpeas

In a small bowl, mash the chickpeas and avocado until chunky paste has formed. Season with himalayan sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Spread the Avocado mixture on top of cracker. Crumble feta on top of mixture and serve!

Another favorite of mine! I've eaten this three times so far, and can't get over how delicious it is. I added this recipe to the "My Fitness Pal" app to see what the nutritional value was and it's roughly 450 calories, 28 grams of fat (good fat from the Avocado), 17 grams of protein (this is amazing), and high in fiber. I know this seems high in fat and calories, but these are the fat and calories that your body needs to refuel. I also follow her BBG program (high intensity training), meaning my body needs these calories to rebuild on a regular basis. 

Hopefully these are helpful! Let me know if you'd be interested in seeing additional recipes!
