Hey, hey! It’s Monday! I am a happy camper today because my later class was cancelled, which means rather than being done at 5:50 tonight, I’m done at 1:10pm!!! And do you know what that means? I didn’t have to get up at 5am to go to the gym before school!

So I  bookmarked a recipe a while back that I kept meaning to try, and this weekend I finally did! For breakfast Saturday morning, I made myself some Greek yogurt with PB2 powder mixed in and blueberries on top, and then I made a Pumpkin Protein muffin from Kristin at Stuft Mama.

I did make a couple changes to her recipe: I used garbanzo bean flour instead of coconut flour, I only used 1 packet stevia, didn’t use any milk, and I used 2 egg whites instead of egg substitute. It turned out absolutely delicious! I am totally obsessed with these now! I made another the next day with blended spinach mixed in, and then another with sliced bananas mixed in!

I love making these muffins with egg whites because it’s a more natural way to get protein in rather than using protein powder like in my protein cupcakes. But no worries, I still LOVE my cupcakes! Haha.

Remember when I told you all about the new products I had tried out? Well there was one that hadn’t arrived at my doorstep yet, but I am so excited to show you!

Miracle Noodles!

My friend, Maddie, told me about these and how she’d seen them on Dr. Oz. I’d never heard of them, but they are gluten free, soy free and ZERO CALORIES. If they are Dr. Oz endorsed and zero calories, then I was all for giving them a try! I ordered the noodles from Amazon, so they weren’t very expensive, but not something I’ll be buying a lot of. I’m on a bit of a budget this year…

They are much more gelatinous than normal noodles, not as firm. They come packaged in water so when you prepare them you’re supposed to drain them, rinse them in cold water, then blanche them in hot water for 1 minute. That’s all!

I had bought some chicken meatballs at Whole Foods, so I decided to try out my “spaghetti”. I roasted some okra, cherry tomatoes, onions and mushrooms (after tossing them in olive oil) on 350 for 30 minutes. Then I mixed in a bit of canned tomatoes, added the meatballs and microwaved all of that. Then I put it on top of the noodles and, voila!

It was actually pretty good. The noodles really don’t have much of a taste, which makes them the perfect vehicle for sauce! I saw a few recipes on the website that suggested treating them more like Asian rice noodles, which I think would fit them a lot better than just a plain tomato sauce.

I’ll have to come up with some creative ways to use the rest of the noodles that I have! I hope you all have a great Monday, and want to leave you with one thought:

Does anyone else have a reason to be excited about Monday?


What do you think about these “miracle noodles”? Are you a Dr. Oz fan?
