Crab Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

This recipe is so simple, and it’s 21 day fix approved.  My dad lives in Alaska and my older son’s have been up there for the summer.  My oldest son came back for a quick visit in June and brought me some fresh caught Dungeness crab.  He and my younger son had stayed up most of the night before cooking and cracking the crab for me.  Oh my gosh, I can’t tell you how sweet and yummy this stuff is.  It’s been in my freezer for a couple months and I’ve been trying to figure out what to make with it and I finally decided on some crab stuffed portobello mushrooms!

crab stuffed portobelloI had about 3 red containers of crab and I mixed that with 2 avocados, which was the equivalent of 4 blue containers.  This crab is so flavorful that I didn’t need to add anything else to it.

crab stuffed portobelloI cleaned two portobello mushrooms and then stuffed some of the crab mixture in each.  (I had planned on making 8 mushrooms, but I waited a day too long I think because all my other mushrooms were moldy.  There was only 2 good ones out of the whole package.  I sprinkled a little cheese on top and popped them in the oven.

Since I only had 2 good mushrooms I had a lot of the crab mixture left over.  You should be able to fill about 8 mushrooms with this mixture.  I’m going to let my boys eat crab BLT sandwiches with the rest.

 

 

When they came out I saw this mountain of yumminess!

Clean Eating Recipe: Power Muffins

My son is playing soccer for his first time and his games are at 10am on Saturday mornings.  This last weekend was our day to bring snacks.  I didn’t want to take just some empty calorie snack filled with sugar, so I decided img_3598to make some Power Muffins that are packed with protein.img_3300

Have you ever tried Kodiak Cake Flapjack mix?  They have different versions including a gluten free version that I want to try, but the one I currently am using is made with whole grains and has 14 grams of protein per serving by itself.  Once you add eggs and milk the protein count goes up.  Anyway, on the box we got last time there was a recipe for Power Muffins, so that is what I made for Mayson to take for soccer snacks.  Each kid got a muffin, some orange slices and a small bottle of water for their snack.

Mayson helped me make them and he was so excited to hand them out to his team.  We doubled the recipe so that we would be able to enjoy them too.  This was my breakfast all week.  (2 muffins = 1 yellow and 1/2 purple)
