Today I want to tell you about a recipe I found, drooled over internally for about a week, and then finally tried on my own while adding a Nutracelle spin to it.
Before I get into the good stuff, let me just begin by explaining I am not a chef. I know, you’re probably surprised. Ha-ha, no, but really. I generally don’t adventure outside of the usual things I know/like to make. Prior to starting Nutracelle my go-to meal was Kraft Dinner (mac & cheese for those non-Canadians reading this), bagels, or microwavable dinners.
Don’t get me wrong, I can cook. I just don’t enjoy it (usually). My mom has been heard saying a few times, “It’s crazy that since you’ve started replacing meals, you seem to cook more. How does that work?!” and it makes me chuckle every time. She’s right, though! Now that I’m focused on eating healthy and following my low carbohydrate lifestyle, I spend more time in the kitchen trying new recipes.
Most of the recipes I make come from www.nutracelle.com, but last weekend I decided to give a Facebook recipe a whirl! It wasn’t complicated – just bacon and chicken wrapped asparagus, but I wanted to put a Nutracelle spin on it.
If your chicken strips aren’t long enough to wrap around the stalk top-to-bottom, connect two strips and continue wrapping. The bacon will hold everything in place!
I baked mine in the oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes in total and turned them every 5-7 minutes. This allowed for even cooking all the way through. I finished by turning my oven to ‘broil’ and broiled each side for 5 additional minutes. Be careful at this step – I may have forgotten mine and almost ruined the entire batch! (heh heh heh)
I paired this with a homemade dip consisting of about 1/4 cup of full-fat mayonnaise, a scoop of Natural Nutralean, and about 1 tbsp of Sriracha hot sauce, and some salt and pepper. The result was delicious! 10/10 will make this recipe again.
When I had placed my pan in the oven, I noticed I had a few chunks of chicken left, a couple of strips of bacon, and the ends I had snapped off from my asparagus. I didn’t want to let it go to waste, so I simply threw it in a frying pan with some olive oil and made a leftover stir-fry of sorts.
This is one of my favourite things about our Natural Nutralean. You can incorporate it into EVERY recipe. It never hurts to add healthy protein and fiber to your meal, and it’s 100% unflavored so you won’t even know it’s there (neither will the family!). People are always surprised when I tell them that our unflavored product is my second favourite. But it’s SO versatile, how could it not be? I always keep a bag visible on my counter so that when I’m making any sort of food – it’s right there to throw in.
Stay tuned for more adventures in the kitchen!

I have been in a stall between 208 and 202 for 5 months....in one week of being back on Nutracelle I am now in ONEDERLAND!
The taste and quality of nutracelle is absolutely unparalleled in the protein market. I recommend it to all my friends and family and having been using it daily for almost 2 years now. And still in love!
The Vanilla Cream is a great flavour added to any of my favourite smoothie recipes! Also makes a nice tasting pancake recipe.
Natural Nutralean from Nutracelle is the perfect protein to add to your food!! There is no added taste!! I made a zucchini meat pasta and added 2 scoops of Natural into my meat sauce!! Not only did it give me and my family all the protein we needed for dinner, but it cut back our portion sizes because we felt fuller faster! We have leftovers now for lunches!! I am so happy with my Nutracelle!
The Vanilla Mocha from Nutracelle is to die for!!! If you are like me and need my coffee every morning to function...then this is for you, as it will give you all the energy you need!! It even taste just like something I can get from Tim Horton's but this is good for you to drink every morning!! This is a must for coffee lovers!!!
The Chocolate Dream Protein from Nutracelle is soooo good. Chocolate is my all time favourite snack and with Nutracelle I am able to make these delicious desserts that are actually good for you! This is a must flavour to have!!
Meal plan is realistic and absolutely manageable. My coach checks in post every workout to see if there is any area I struggle in or if maybe the routine was too easy. He is quick at answering any questions I have and is very knowleageable with nutrition and what my body needs to eat and can explain it to me in various ways to make sure I understand as well. I have never worked with someone who is so passionate about fitness and proper nutrition as well as someone who is on top of everything. App is also very user-friendly; super easy to log everything in with a few click so that you dont have to do it urself on paper. Absolutely thrilled to be working with this team to better my fitness life. Highly recommend joining the team!
Nutracelle's Weight Loss kit has made such a huge impact on my life! I was a junk food junky before I found Nutracelle, and now I don't even think about it! It's been months since I've had any kind of junk and I've never felt better! More energy, tons of weight loss, and I've dropped 2 clothing sizes too!! AMAZING!
The weightloss kit has enabled me to wake up each morning knowing that I've got this!! For the first time in my life I've found something that allows me to feel full and satisfied and I can bake and cook with it to curb cravings I have for junky foods! In my first two months I'm down 15 pounds and dropping. Almost everyday there is a decrease on the scale I couldn't be happier!! I'm looking forward to continued success THANK YOU NUTRACELLE!
Nutracelle is the best product I have ever used for protein. All the flavours are fantastic, can't taste the protein. Since I started to take Nutracelle I have consistent energy throughout the day, it keeps me full and satisfied. My recovery from my workouts and running is fantastic. Recommend this product to anyone wanting to lose weight, athletes or to increase your protein intake daily.
Shakes are amazing. I just mix them with (sugar-free) milk and have no problem drinking them. Like at all! I even love the chocolate. I never ever love chocolate protein shakes haha
This Whey protein powder is the most amazing and the most delicious that I have ever tasted.....with it having 30 grams of protein and 10 grams of prebiotic fiber in one serving, not many meals have that so a great way to get that into your diet.....It mixes very well with no clumping and doesn't have the chalky after taste. I find that is is very easy on my stomach as I am lactose intolerant and I have no issues what so ever, it has actually helped with my stomach issues....Love that it mixes very well with just water! I also Love that it is so versatile that I am not just limited to the shakes, that I can use it in my baking and cooking . If I could give it 10 Stars I would.
I have been on nutracelle since January 2017 and absolutely love it!
I'm losing weight and inches, I have so much more energy and it makes me happy! Nutracelle is giving me my life back! #ilovenutracelle
Nutracelle has been the one product that has kept me on track with my weight loss journey. So easy to incorporate into my daily routine and it tastes amazing! Almost all of my immediate family all use and love Nutracelle too!
It tastes amazing & reduces cravings! I'm breastfeeding and was finding my cravings worse than when I was pregnant. I needed something to eat with my meals to help me stay full, be nutritious and curb cravings. This is it!
