Perfect Fit Donuts!

Hey dolls!

I can’t believe it’s Monday night already, so depressing… The whole getting dark at 5:00 thing is getting old already. But, I won’t complain… this is my favorite season and Christmas will be here before we know it!

Speaking of Christmas, it reminds me of gifts and presents. This weekend, my boyfriend gave me a perfect gift – a mini doughnut maker! So of course, the first thing we made together were Perfect Fit Donuts!

These were so yummy and I can’t believe how healthy they were. Normally, I down a whole box of doughnuts without even blinking an eye. I mean, what is better than white powdered doughnuts and a big cup of cold milk? Dough and anything related to bread is my downfall. I’m so, so happy that I found a healthy alternative to when I’m having my usual bad cravings.

Recipe –

  • 1 cup of Perfect Fit Protein
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 tbsp. coconut oil (or just extra virgin olive oil)
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (use chocolate milk to make chocolate donuts)
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 1 tsp stevia
  • dash of cinnamon (I used more than a dash since I loveee cinnamon)
  • Optional: add 2 tbsp. cocoa powder if you’re making chocolate

Add in the rest of your dry ingredients and egg whites. Start stirring!

Next, start pouring in your almond milk. I like the Silk brand – less calories and much healthier than soy or regular milk.

batter

Whisk ingredients together until the batter is completely smooth.

With my Bella doughnut kit, this pink ketchup bottle looking thing was included. If you have one of these at home, I suggest using it. It makes pouring in the batter a lot easier (and less sloppy than pouring it in by hand…)

Simply close the lid and let them bake for however long your machine requires. It takes about 1 minute for the one I have. Once they’re done, they look like this. Pretty perfect, right? And simple!

For the toppings, you can either:

  1. Drizzle organic honey on top
  2. Melt down organic chocolate with cocoa powder to make a chocolate drizzle (this goes great if you make chocolate doughnuts)
  3. If you have Perfect Fit, sprinkle some protein powder on top of the doughnuts to make a powdered topping. So yummy!

If you try this yummy and healthy recipe, let me know what toppings you used! Tried a different type than the ones I mentioned? Comment below and let me know!

These make the perfect little snacks too. I packed some in my lunch box for work and ate some as a mid-morning snack. These are great for snacks in between breakfast & lunch OR lunch & dinner. They’re also full of protein – so these would even be great as a post workout snack. Lots of options with these bad boys.

TIU Meal: Chili in a Bowl

Thursday evening…

Simply means Friday is a few hours away. Which also means the premier of Thor is 24 hours away! AHHH! Anyways, got a little side tracked. Ahem. Tonight’s post is another recipe from the Tone It Up plan. I can’t get enough of their recipes and neither can by boyfriend. He helped me prepare this yummy meal last night, very proud of him! So let’s get started…

ingredients

Very few ingredients are needed, which is why I make this meal a lot. These are also ingredients I usually have on hand at all times. What you need…

  • 1 Bell Pepper (any color will do.. I just happened to have an orange one)
  • 4 oz of Ground Turkey (I always use Perdue.. less fat and calories)
  • 1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Can of Kidney Beans
  • 1/4 Cup of Diced Jalapenos
  • 1/4 Cup of Onion, Diced
  • 1 tsp. of Chili Powder (you can put as much as you like depending how hot you want it)
  • 1/2 tsp. of Pepper + Salt
  • 1 cup of Vegetable Broth
  • Optional: add a cup of water, depending on the consistency you want

meat

In a skillet, start by browning your turkey meat. I made them into small patties and used a potato masher to mash up the meat… duh. Cook the meat until brown.

veggies

While your meat is cooking, start dicing up your veggies.

broth

In a medium sauce pan, add your kidney beans and vegetable broth. Bring the liquid to a simmer.

seasonings

Once your beans are simmering, add in your tomatoes and seasonings. Stir ingredients together and turn heat down low. Let this cook for about 5 minutes.

fry

Add in your veggies with the turkey meat.

mix together

Stir together until the veggies start to soften up. Optional: add in 2 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil and salt to give the veggies more flavor and to speed up the process.

cooking

After your veggies are cooked, the meat, and tomatoes are hot… add all ingredients into the medium sauce pan. Give this a little stir and add in your cup of water. Let the water heat up for about 3 minutes.

chili

Pour into a bowl and enjoy!

This makes about 6 servings, so pack this for your lunch for work the next day! Simple, easy, and healthy. Did I mention how amazing this tastes? I love that it’s not too spicy or hot. It’s the perfect amount of heat.
