EAT: Brussel Sprout Chips

Brussel Sprout Chips

Brussel Sprouts are some of my favorite greens to eat. I know its people's worst enemy, but there is something about brussel sprouts that I enjoy. Maybe its the bitterness and the challenge to make it something delightful, but I've found a wicked love for them over the past few months. 

Brussel Sprout chips are so easy to make, they can be a little tedious in the beginning, but after making them frequently they become easier.

Ingredients

  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Coconut Oil Spray
  • Sea Salt
  • Lemon Zest (optional)

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. 

2. Remove the leaves of the brussel sprouts. I normally cut the brussel sprouts in halves or quarters. As the leaves start to peel itself off from them I start to pull them apart. I leave the larger parts of the brussel sprouts to roast them in the oven in the same manner in a separate pan. Doing this makes the prep much faster than peeling all the leaves off the sprout completely.

3. Put all the leaves onto a baking sheet making sure that there are none on top of one another. 

4. Spray with coconut oil spray, sprinkle with sea salt to taste, and cook for 8-10 minutes

5. Sprinkle lemon zest on top of cooked chips and serve. Enjoy! 





EAT: Cheat Clean Cookies

Its exactly 3 months till my first NPC competition and I have 6 days left of "clean cheating". I was craving warm home made cookies, but I'm doing my best to stay away from sugars, butter, and gluten. All the fun stuff I used to make my home made chocolate chip cookies. So today I decided that I was going to take my delicious Quest Protein to a whole new level.

I took my two favorite flavors Cookies and Cream and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, broke them up into 3 pieces and smashed them into a cookie shape.

Then I baked them at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes.

And VOILA!!! Clean Cheat Cookies! Such the perfect way to #CheatClean while you're #OnaQuest!
