Hi, I’m Danielle!
I am a passionate home cook, a loving wife, a proud mother to two radiant little girls, and a certified Nutrition Coach. Our family is nestled in the scenic beauty of Alaska, and though we might not have big-name stores at our doorstep, I believe in creating mouth-watering, wholesome recipes with ingredients you can easily spot in your local market!
Alaska, with its breathtaking landscapes, has infused in us a love for the outdoors. Yet, when the cold arrives, my kitchen becomes a haven of warmth. It’s here I thrive in experimenting with everyday ingredients, creating dishes that are not only nutritious but also delicious.
If it doesn’t pass the family test, it won’t make it to the website!
Balancing a full-time job and running a bustling household can get chaotic. Yet, with a little prep and some key staples, I’ve discovered the recipe to ease through the week. At ohsnapmacros.com, you’ll find dishes curated to save you time without skimping on flavor. Whether you’re a single diner, a couple, or feeding a growing family, there’s something here for everyone. And if you’re intrigued by macros, consider the nutritional details a bonus!
I try to make tracking your macros as easy as possible with these recipes. All nutrition facts are logged into both MyFitnessPal and Macros First for easy tracking. Easy recipe card will point you in the direction of what to search in the apps.
While the recipes here focus on high protein and moderate to low carbs and fats you better believe I do not leave anything off the table because I believe wholeheartedly that food brings memories and is meant to be enjoyed. Whether you’re making chocolate chip cookies or a hearty bowl of soup, my goal is for you to be able to enjoy all the foods you know and love.
Make macros work for you, not against you.
Embarking on a personal journey towards better health and wellness, I’ve come to realize that balance and enjoyment in eating are not just possible, they are essential. This is my philosophy: making macros work for me, rather than against me, and cherishing every bite along the way. It’s not about stringent diets or labeling foods as ‘right’ or ‘wrong,’ but about creating a harmonious relationship with food that celebrates its diversity and abundance.
Macros, what are they? How did I get here?
Post my second pregnancy, I stumbled upon macro tracking. It wasn’t just another dietary fad, but a liberating approach to food. It taught me to enjoy meals without guilt and instilled in me the wisdom of portion control. Macros – carbohydrates, fats, and proteins – became the three pillars of my meals. With this newfound knowledge, I began tweaking traditional recipes, making them more macro-balanced, ensuring they remained a hit with adults and kids alike. This passion project gradually blossomed into ohsnapmacros.com, my little corner of the internet. I’m humbled and thrilled that you’ve chosen to join me on this journey. To hear more about my journey, check out this podcast on Mind Over Macros with Mike Millner.
Macros are your three main macronutrients: carbohydrates, fats, and protein. These three macronutrients make up your calories.
If you’re in the maze of macros, don’t fret. My initial steps were guided by a coach, but over time, armed with online resources and some trial and error, I’ve learned to set my own. Depending on your goals – be it cutting, reversing, or maintenance – there are amazing online tools like the TDEE calculator to assist you. And if personal coaching is what you’re after, I have some incredible recommendations for you, Elise from The Skinny On Fitness, is who I did one-on-one coaching with and she is amazing. Another one-on-one coach I’d highly recommend is Lexus from Lexus Gordon Coaching.
