Buff Bake: Nut Butter With a Purpose

Recently, we (might have) introduced you to a product called PB Crave that offered one of the best-tasting peanut butters we ever consumed. While the focus of the product seems to be tasting good, using natural ingredients, and something even greater, it isn’t a revolution in the field of healthy peanut butters (for the body). Buff Bake has created a line of products that is trying to accomplish that level of maintaining the joy of consuming peanut-butter-like substances while increasing the level of nutrition at the same time. The result? That’s up to your taste buds

Healthy Energy to Power You Through the Summer

If the name, Kaeng Raeng, sounds familiar, it’s because we did an awesome cleanse with them (plus a giveaway) back in 2014. This was a hit with us and with you guys! We’re here to tell you about another great product coming from this great company. What I love the most about Kaeng Raeng is that they’re all about the natural. Natural ingredients, natural lifestyle, natural health. They don’t give you a magic pill to lose all your fat. These are healthy ingredients to spur a healthy lifestyle–it’s as simple as that. Now, let’s get to the new product–the Daily Green Energy.

A Fresh Way to Keep the Body Clean and Healthy

Do you think your health is connected to your drinking water? I’m guessing that you probably do since humans require a lot of water. Not all cities have access to clean water, even (or especially) big metropolitan cities. So even if you’re living in a hip town, the water coming from your very own tap could be poisoning you. There have been a lot of products to try to combat this, but not all of them work. However, there’s a new player in town backed by science and a mission. This product doesn’t focus on your waistline; it focuses on something all cleanses are supposed to do. What’s that, you say? Water Liberty developed a product called Adya Clarity that rids you of toxins and metals from your body. How? By purifying your water! We now have the power to harness clean, healthy water!

Crustless Kale Quiche

It’s one of those mornings…when you’re still eating quite healthy, feeling a little lazy, and want to have something yummy. You also need to clean out your fridge. What to do….quiche! We keep it crustless to keep the unneeded carbs and bad fats out and we throw in whatever may go bad in the following week. For our fridge, we had a whole lot of kale that I wanted to go through. Kale is a wonderful green and gives a nice texture to a quiche. You can follow my recipe, or you can use it as a base and throw what you want into it! Grab some eggs and here we go…

Blueberry Cashew Topping

We’re still eating clean for the most part over here at Hungry & Fit headquarters and that means getting creative when we have sweet tooths (teeth…). Hungry recently came up with this divine topping (or sauce) to put on breakfast or “desserts.” I was absolutely blown away when he served it to me atop a stack of Kodiak pancakes (healthy pancakes). I was like, well someone got carried away, is this still healthy? And guess what–it was! I was shocked when I learned the ingredients for this beautiful, delicious topping: blueberries and cashews were the main components. Each bite was like a slice of heaven–the cashews were just soft enough to ease into your mouth and melt while the blueberries soothed everything out. Okay, enough dreaming, let’s get to the real stuff!

Yeah, 5 minutes is accurate! As you are frying up those pancakes, heating up those waffles, scooping that froyo, heat this up in a pan! You and your family will be thanking me this weekend. It’s an easy way to trick the kids into liking something healthy! It’s a perfect weekend breakfast addition. It’s easy and anyone with a heat source and a pot can make it. It also isn’t too sweet. I’m not a fan of most pancake toppings because there’s way too much sugar. This balance is absolutely wonderful. Make this recipe to stay hungry and fit!

Why Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner Don’t Exist Anymore

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner don’t exist anymore. Well, at least not in the world of fitness, or within more specific niches and communities in that world. Allow me to explain how I came to this conclusion. But before that, allow me to say this. I don’t plan or prep meals 99% of the time. I have been fortunate enough to always had visible abs and my eating style has always been the same. I eat like a wild animal in the way that I can go days without eating or eat 10,000 calories in one sitting. Almost anything is possible, still, take this to heart and mind.

From time to time, I’ll use My Fitness Pal to track my caloric intake. We all know that caloric surpluses and deficits are a key component to either gaining or losing weight. Depending on what you eat and how you exercise, that weight could either be fat and/or muscle. If you are fully committed and prioritize your weight-loss or weight-gain journey as more than important than enjoying what you eat, or if you don’t care what you eat, you’re going to make the most efficient progress. However, there are not so many who can maintain that dedication.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies (No-Bake)

Could you have a better combination of words? Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Cookies. Yum. Oh and don’t forget the no-bake part! What! I was so excited when I saw this recipe that I had to make my own variation! You may get that I’m excited due to the back-to-back exclamation points. This was an incredibly easy recipe. As I was putting it together, I kept thinking, is this really going to work? Spoiler alert: it worked and it’s damn delicious! There is no cooking time to these cookies and they are chock-full of protein! Often times, adding protein powder to baked goods can give them weird textures and flavors. Not this one! You wouldn’t even suspect that there was anything added to these cookies besides deliciousness.

Whole-Wheat Medieval Honey Biscuits

I have continued my journey with the Ice and Fire cookbook (aka Game of Thrones for you tv-lubbers). Last time we dined at the Wall. Now we move to the South to Lord Caswell’s table. This recipe comes from A Clash of Kings. It’s been a lot of fun to try out different recipes, especially from this cookbook! This recipe is pretty easy to do. I’ve healthified it a little bit by using whole-wheat flour which increases the fiber and keeps your blood sugar from spiking like it would with white flour. I paired these as a dessert to the Healthy “Accidentally” Paleo Meatballs and they were a hit! This is an authentic medieval recipe, just altered to fit Hungry and Fit’s needs!

Healthy “Accidentally Paleo” Meatballs

Hungry had a long day at work on a Saturday (yuck!) and I had a hankering for cooking, so I wanted to make him a nice dinner. I am a vegetarian while he is not, so I don’t cook a lot of meat dishes. However, tonight I would! We had some nice lean beef in the house, so I wanted to make scrumptious meatballs! However, we didn’t have any breadcrumbs…hmm… Luckily, I was able to find a recipe to base mine off of that lacked breadcrumbs. This actually turned it accidentally into a “paleo” recipe. Hungry and I are far from being paleo, but I know it’s popular right now, so maybe this will help you out!
