The Truth About Abs

If you dig pumpkin pie, you'll love this little nutrient-dense, antioxidant-rich, protein-packed treat! It's funny, but whenever someone sees this little concoction that I make, they say that it looks disgusting, but when they try it, they always love it. I know it's a little "out there", but give it a shot... it tastes like pumpkin pie filling, but tastier, and better for you!

This recipe makes 5-6 servings (I like to split into 5-6 containers to have a quick healthy mid-meal each day):

  • two 15-oz cans of pure 100% pumpkin pack

  • one 15-oz container of ricotta cheese (grass-fed if you can find it)

  • one 32-oz container of vanilla yogurt

  • one scoop (about 25 grams) of vanilla protein powder with no artificial sweeteners

  • 3/4 cup raisins or currants

  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

  • 1/4 cup chia seed and/or hemp seed

  • 1/4 cup rice bran

  • cinnamon to season to taste (1/2 to 1 tsp works well)

  • a little stevia (natural non-caloric sweetener) -- only if it needs a little more sweetness for your taste

  • Mix everything together in a huge bowl and split into 5-6 containers (approx 16 oz containers work well), and you've got a quick healthy meal for each weekday. Adjust the quantities of the ingredients if you want less calories or more calories per meal.

    Approx. macronutrient breakdown per serving:
    30 g. prot; 50 g. carbs; 10 g. fiber; 18 g. fat; 450 cals

    This would be a pretty full meal for smaller females, so adjust the quantities a little bit lower. For bigger guys, this meal size should be fairly satisfying.

    If you like these unique healthy meal ideas, there are 84 other Lean-Body meal ideas included with my Truth about Six Pack Abs program.

    Til next time,
    Don't be lazy... be lean.

    Awesome!! This sounds great - I am always looking for good recipes that are high in fiber and no artificial anything:)

    This pie looks versatile and its crust can also be used to make new varieties by using vegetables like tomatoes, potatoes, artichokes and greens- spinach. If you are preparing it first time you can start with baby spinach for a lighter flavor.
