Welcome to m’blog! This project began in 2014 while I was wrapping up a nutrition degree and starting a personal training business. At one point, this blog had over 150 articles about training and nutrition science. 

It wasn’t until 2017 I figured out that I was much better at creating food-related content. Since then, it’s been all food, all recipes, all the way. 

My niche has always been macro friendly, flexible dieting, or whatever you want to call unrestrictive eating. That’s why you’ll find macronutrient breakdowns for every recipe and why I coin some recipes healthy.

Healthy is a tricky word that can mean something different to everyone. Around here, healthy almost always refers to a lower calorie recipe. Those calories could be pulled from carbs like in my low carb pasta carbonara or five spice ground beef stir fry, or it could be pulled from fat like my Carolina BBQ crockpot chicken.

You’ll find a wide range of macronutrient ratios in my recipes. This lower calorie approach gradually attracted WW (formerly Weight Watchers) members. So I’ve added Smart Points to every recipe and even have a WW Recipe Index to sort recipes by Smart Point totals. 

Wrapping things up with a few fun facts about me, I was born and raised in the south and love all things comfort food and Tex-Mex. I have a beautiful fiancĂ© and the goodest good Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Sir John. I’m almost 29 years into life and love hip hop, dad jokes, and puns more than ever. 

And that really sums things up quite nicely. 

If you’re wondering where to start, here are my top 10 most popular recipes:

  1. Baked Chicken Tacos
  2. 50-Calorie Cheeseburger Bites
  3. High Protein Creamy Taco Soup
  4. 100-Calorie Mug Protein Brownie
  5. Low Carb, High Protein Blueberry Cake Donuts
  6. Pan Fried Naked Chicken Tenders
  7. High Protein Chocolate Cake Donut Holes
  8. Sticky Sweet Ground Beef and Broccoli
  9. Birthday Cake Protein Mug Cake
  10. Copycat Wingstop Fries

Oh, and for whatever reason, over 100,000 people have decided to follow along on Instagram. Feel free to come over for the recipes and stick around for the puns and pick up lines (on my aforementioned fiancĂ©, don’t worry).
