Quick Tip: How To Make Tacos Diet Friendly

A quick tip about making macro friendly and delicious tacos!

When making tacos, rather than using a starchy carb source both inside and as the wrap, pick 1 instead. This will help keep the overall calories in check.

In the top photos, I’m sticking to romaine lettuce as my wraps because I have rice, corn, and beans inside my filling.

In the bottom photos, I have fresh and cooked lower calorie, non starchy veggies as my filling so I am using regular flour wraps.

Little adjustments like these do not take away the yumminess of the tacos, but help ensure a lower calorie meal.

Bonus Tip: Use non fat Greek yogurt in place of sour cream.

Fitness Tips

Include these 3 things in your diet to help you stay full and satisfied while on your fat loss journey.

Staying full and satisfied while eating in a calorie deficit? Is that even possible..?! It sure is with your food choices. Pictured are 3 of my favorite things to include in my meals when aiming for fat loss. We often think of big salads, and don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love big salads, but it’s nice to have plenty of options. Fresh fruit, a soup with lean protein and veggies, and sparkling water are my go to’s when I am dieting. If you find yourself having a really hungry day, enjoy all of these in one meal and for about 450 calories you will feel full for ages!

The Perfect Healthy Donut Recipe!!

Macro Friendly Donuts!

This high protein, low fat donut is the perfect way to satisfy a donut craving while still helping you nail your nutritional goals! Donuts are a family favorite around my house, so I went on a mission to create a lighter homemade version that would be realistic for us to enjoy everyday. I hope you love them as much as we do!! If you do, remember to ❤️ Like, Share, Tag, and Save to help support my passion to bring more delicious options to us all while we are aiming to live a fit life!🤗

Makes 6

For 1 donut with icing and 3g of toppings

215 calories

20g protein

27g carbohydrate

2g fat


For the donuts

120ml 1% milk

110g unsweetened applesauce

50ml real maple syrup

1 egg

100g all purpose flour

50g PEScience Cake POP Select Protein Powder

5g baking powder

For icing and toppings per individual donut

15 ml 1% milk

12g PEScience Select Protein Powder (flavor of choice)

(Optional: 2g of Instant pudding mix. If using increase milk to 20ml)

3-5g of cereal, chocolate chips, sprinkles, marshmallows, etc..


By hand or in a mixer, mix together the milk, maple syrup, applesauce, and egg.

Add in the flour, protein powder, and baking powder and combine until just incorporated. Batter will be fairly thin.

Evenly divide batter using a silicone donut baking pan. Enough batter for 6 donuts. Place the donut pan on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until cooked through.

Allow to cool and then remove from donut pan. Store for up to 4-5 days in the refrigerator.

To make the frosting mix together the milk and protein powder (and if using the instant pudding mix). That’s it. Top the donuts with the icing and your favorite toppings. To help thicken the icing, if needed, you can refrigerate it for a few minutes. Works like a charm! Fully iced and topped donuts can also be stored in the refrigerator but enjoy within 2 days of topping. I personally prefer to ice and top them just before enjoying.
