Banana Oat Breakfast Bars

Sad, sad news. I found out I'm allergic to wheat. Like legitimately allergic, I'm not trying (or wanting) to jump on the gluten-free bandwagon.

With an allergy to wheat, I can still have items containing rye, just not foods with "wheat" in the ingredients. What is interesting about food allergies is that you can train your body over time to tolerate certain amounts, with appropriate guidance of course.

Finding out about this wasn't all bad. I'm taking it as a challenge to learn what my patients have to go through when they find out about new allergies or intolerances. So you know what that means....experimenting with gluten-free flours! My kind of fun!

Protein Vanilla Blueberry Cake

I apologize for the lack of recipe posts over the past 9+ months. Life has been incredibly great and I've never been happier thanks to my boyfriend Jack :)

So back to recipes. Since the last post I've been really focusing on taking weight training up a notch. Jack happens to be a certified Exercise Physiologist, so he's been putting me through some crazy awesome lifting routines with him. We've also been focusing on improving our eating habits and eating enough to fuel ourselves through our workouts, as well as promote fast recovery after out workouts. This being said, I still love sweets. Together we've made protein cookies, protein cheesecake, tons of protein goodies.
