Hello everyone, I’ve got a recipe to warm you up for the upcoming cold months. This week I made Chicken Corn Chowder. I’m giving this one an 8.5 out of 10!

What makes it great? It tastes great and it’s packed with protein. It makes the perfect comfort food for these upcoming cold months.

What makes it just ok? It’s not one that I want to pack for work, it’s pretty filling and soup is difficult to transport.

Disclaimer: Please track ingredients for yourself. Depending on what ingredients you pick, it will change the nutritional info.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1lb of baby red potatoes
-¼ cup flour
-8 cups chicken broth
-1 bag of frozen corn
-¼ tsp thyme
-1 tsp dried basil
-1 tsp onion powder
-salt and pepper to taste
-½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
-Shredded chicken (I used about 1.5lbs of premade chicken breast)
-¼ cup 2% milk
-2 tbsp half and half

I premade about 1.5 lbs of chicken breast before making this recipe. I used my slow cooker for this because it makes perfect shredded chicken. Here’s how you make the shredded chicken: All you need is the chicken and your slow cooker. Cook chicken on high for 3-4 hours, remove and shred. You do not need to add additional liquids.

Here’s how to make the Chicken Corn Chowder:

1. In your slow cooker add potatoes, flour, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
2. Add chicken broth, corn, thyme, basil, and onion powder, mix. Cook on high for 3 hours or until potatoes are tender.
3. Stir in shredded chicken, cheese, milk and half and half until cheese is completely melted.
4. Heat for another 10 minutes until warm and enjoy!

Hello everyone, this week I’ll be coming back to a favorite staple recipe of mine that I use every week. Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of people asking for my overnight oats recipe while I’m coaching. I’m going to share my favorite version of the recipe today, Chocolate Peanut Butter Overnight Oats!

This recipe is definitely a 9.5 out of 10!

What makes it great? It’s filling and it tastes great! It even satisfies my sweet tooth. There’s enough carbs to get your day started and opportunity to add a good amount of protein too!

This recipe includes a product called PB2. In case you haven’t heard of it, it is a powdered peanut butter substitute. It’s got the flavor of peanut butter without all the calories. And, it’s made from real peanuts. You can find this item in the peanut butter aisle along side the other nut butters.

Disclaimer: Please track ingredients for yourself. Depending on what ingredients you pick, it will change the nutritional info.

Here’s what you’ll need:
-1tbsp chia seeds
-⅓ cup old fashioned oats
-1tbsp honey
-2 tbsp of PB2
-1tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
-6oz vanilla, unsweetened almond milk
-Vanilla Greek yogurt (I usually about 150g of yogurt, the serving size here is up to you)

1. Combine almond milk, chia seeds and oats in a mason jar. Mix well and put in the fridge overnight with the lid on. The cocoa powder might separate when left overnight in the fridge, this won’t affect the final outcome.
2. The next morning, add honey and PB2, mix thoroughly. I used a butter knife for mixing, it is easier than using a spoon.
3. Add vanilla Greek yogurt on top for protein. I usually add about 150 grams.
