    #DELTAPROUD in Boston

    I just came back from our annual Global Sales Conference in Boston last week and it reminded me about how much I love the people I work with and being able to connect with my big Delta family! There were definitely some great speakers and events, but I think I enjoyed just talking (and dancing haha) with everyone the most 🙂 As always on my travels, I try to seek out (1) good and (mostly;) healthy gluten-free food, (2) a great workout – whether outside or at a local gym, and (3) new experiences or sites in the city I’m visiting! This was my first time in Boston city proper…

    Oatmeal Cottage Cheese Pancakes (with Chocolate Chips of course)

    Here’s a new pancake recipe I tried because I had cottage cheese in the fridge I wanted to use up…and who doesn’t like pancakes?!? This was super simple, clean, high in protein and not overly sweet, which works well for me:) Although I did add chocolate chips…of course. But you could try a variety of additions…blueberries, bananas, apples, etc. Ingredients: 1c egg whites 1c cottage cheese (I like Nancy’s Organic Cottage Cheese because it was the only one I could find without any additives or thickeners! It only contains the following – Organic skim milk, organic cream, organic nonfat dry milk, L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, and 4 strains of lactic cultures,…

    Sweet Green Egg Scramble

    I found my new favorite breakfast! It may look a little crazy, but try not to judge until you try;) All you need is the following: 3/4c liquid egg whites 1 banana Lotsa spinach (1-2c depending on personal preference) Vanilla and cinnamon to taste Put all ingredients in a blender. Then scramble on a skillet. Once cooked through (there will be a little excess water from the spinach), I like to mix in 1T of almond butter and you’re done! Here’s the approximate nutrition breakdown: 310 calories 33g carbs 9g fat 27g protein You can up your healthy fats by adding more nut butter or decrease carbs by using a…

    Crafty Snacking

    This weekend I was out of town, so my eating routine gets a little thrown off, but such is life! I’ve been really hungry lately with doing more heavy lifting, so I picked up a few snacks from the grocery store to hold me over between meals. My main purchases were Van’s Ancient Grains Gluten Free Frozen Waffles (The best I’ve ever tried! See nutritional information below), Chobani greek yogurts and bacon…plus some spinach, green onions and goat cheese to scramble with eggs:) One of my creative snacks was a frozen waffle topped with natural crunchy peanut butter and bacon…carbs, fats and protein all in one and it was delicious!   Van’s Ancient Grains Gluten…

    Panera’s Hidden Menu: A Gluten-free Goldmine!

    Having celiac disease and not being able to eat gluten makes it a little difficult to eat out at times when I’m on the go. But there are always options! When I think of Panera I almost immediately go straight to those delicious cinnamon crunch bagels. But those are unfortunately rather glutinous haha. I didn’t think they would have anything I could eat besides a few salads, but then discovered Panera’s “Hidden Menu”. It features several power breakfast bowls full of protein, veggies and gluten-free goodness! With traveling this weekend, I needed a spot to set up my computer to work, while also grabbing breakfast since I was up at…

    2(+) Ingredient Banana Pancakes

    These are my lazy day weekend favorites…so easy, but so delicious. And you mostly likely have all the ingredients you need already on hand! Another bonus is that they are high in protein, which I’m always trying to get more of:) At the basic level, when you’re in a pinch, all you need is: 1 ripe banana, mashed 2 eggs I usually go with the above plus: 2T flax meal Vanilla to taste Cinnamon to taste Other things you can add include almond butter, almond flour, coconut flour, protein powder, milk (any kind), etc either in addition to the flax meal or in place of. You can just modify the dry and…
