Biscuit & Gravy Casserole

2.jpg

The long awaited recipe has finally arrived!!! Who doesn't love a good plate of biscuits and gravy? We love that meal here at the Adams household. But I stopped making it once I jumped on the macro train cause it was so fatty and carby. I didn't think it was possible to find a happy medium between just enough carbs to actually make it taste like biscuits and gravy and being too much for one meal. 

But alas! I found it! 

This recipe is baked in a 9x13 dish and one serving is an eighth of the pan with 1/4c of the gravy. This casserole takes a minute to bake, but it keeps overnight in the fridge and is JUST as good the next morning for breakfast or dinner! It's definitely become a staple in our house!

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 Homestyle Biscuits (the ones in the tube. The package comes with 8, but only use six!)
  • 9T eggwhites (138g)
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 8 Jimmy Dean Sausage patties, crumbled.
  • 28g fat free cheddar
  • 28g mild cheddar shredded cheese
  • 1/2c Fairlife skim milk
  • salt and pepper
  • one package of sausage gravy mix. (save this for after the casserole is in the oven!)

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Cut biscuits into bite size pieces and place them in a lightly greased 9x13
  • top with crumbled sausage
  • top with cheese
  • mix egg, egg whites, milk, salt and pepper in a bowl and pour over biscuit and sausage. 
  • Cover with foil and bake for 40-45 minutes.
  • While that's in the oven, mix gravy packet with water and top each piece with gravy right before serving!

See? Easy peasy and SO GOOD!

Oh hey, look at that! Another...

macro friendly meal prep recipe! You're welcome. 

Today we're stealing this recipe from the queen of meal prep, Jannae Goncalves! She makes these breakfast sandwiches every Sunday for her and her husband. So easy to put together, and so quick to heat up every morning! Pop them in the microwave with a paper towel for 60 seconds and you're good to go! 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 English Muffin
  • 1 Egg
  • 15g Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 1 Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Patty

DIRECTIONS:

  • Crack eggs in a muffin tin, and add salt and pepper to taste, then scramble in the tin.
  • Set oven to 375 and cook for 13 minutes.
  • When done (a toothpick will come out clean) top with cheese and pop back in oven for additional 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Simply put together the sandwiches with one patty and the egg and english muffin! These can be separated into ziplock bags and labeled for each day. 

Enjoy!

XL Smoothie Bowl

IMG_4240.JPG

I think the hardest thing for me about dieting...

 in the past was portion control. I felt so restricted and felt like my portion sizes were the size of a quarter. Granted, the flexibility is something I genuinely love about macros, and its allowed me to explore different portion sizes with all my numbers. 

So, I introduce to you, the XL Smoothie Bowl! This thing is a carb monster, but in the very best way. I picked up a few Jamba frozen fruit packets at Smiths a few days ago and have been dying to try them out. I added vanilla greek yogurt to mine to up the protein, but if you have vanilla protein powder on hand that would work great, too!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Jamba Strawberry Wild Smoothie Pack
  • 1 Light and Fit Greek Vanilla Yogurt Container
  • 105G banana, divided
  • 50g Strawberries
  • 45g Homemade Cinnamon Granola
  • water

DIRECTIONS

  • Throw your smoothie pack, half your banana and yogurt in the blender. Add water until desired consistency is reached.

  • Pour into a bowl and top with remaining fruit and granola.
