It’s funny this oatmeal is called Mad Hectic Oatmeal, because thats usually what my day is- Hectic!
This protein packed oatmeal is awesome! – With some peanut butter on the side.
When I work 10, 12 hour shifts I really have to plan my meals and pack accordingly. So here is my day…
Breakfast, Protein shake for a snack, lunch= Salad with veggies, almonds and raisins, with tuna and an apple for my afternoon snack.

I was out of hummus so Ill use a little of this on my veggies. Only 2g of sugar and 45 calories in 2 tablespoons!

Meal planning takes some preparation for long shifts at work. I like to take fruit, protein shakes, or easy things I can snack on quickly.
Whole Living has a list of quick and easy snacks to take to work.
One of my favorite foods on thanksgiving is of course the sweet potatoes! Here is a light-er Sweet Potato Pecan Casserole– that anyone can make from FitSugar!
Traditional sweet potato casserole brings a pile of unnecessary sugar and fat to the table. Swapping out marshmallows for a warming cinnamon pecan crumble plays up the natural flavor of this sweet superfood — instead of covering it up!


5 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/3 cup honey
1 large egg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 tablespoon packed dark brown sugar
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Mist an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Bring a few inches of water to a boil in a pot with a large steamer basket in place. Put the sweet potatoes in the basket, cover, and steam until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Transfer the potatoes to a bowl, and let cool slightly. Add the honey, egg, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, the nutmeg, ginger and 1/2 teaspoon salt; whip with an electric mixer until smooth. Spread the sweet potato mixture in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Mix the brown sugar, pecans, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a bowl; sprinkle over the potatoes. Bake until hot and beginning to brown around the edges, 40 to 45 minutes.
