Inspiring fitness lovers to have their cupcake and eat it too!

Yesterday I had Overnight Oats for Breakfast:

  • Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • cinnamon to taste

*Add a small amount of almond milk in the morning to get the desired thickness you want! (I don’t use yogurt in mine but you can if you want it thicker)

I ate them at work in a hurry so I could only snap one picture.

  • Topping:
  • Raisins
  • Honey Almond Flax Cereal
  • Almond slices
  • Any other topping you like- fruit etc.

Oatmeal  is a “Super food” and has many health benefits. I like to eat oatmeal with peanut butter because it fills me up for a 3-4 hours. It has lots of fiber and you can mix in lots of fun ingredients!

Snack time: A banana with peanut butter

We had Hot chocolate for dessert for the “24 Days of Togetherness”.

I like the Keurig Cafe Escapes Hot Chocolate. It Only has 7 grams of sugar and 60 calories!

Question of the day:

Do you like to drink hot chocolate or another kind of festive drink??

Last night for dinner we had Blueberry Balsamic glazed Pork Chops with roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli. This was the first time I had ever made a glaze and it was so good!  This is definitely going to be one of my staple dinners! Eric loved it, Alec not so much. I can’t really expect an 11 year old to like it!

I tweaked the recipe a little bit because I am not a huge fan of balsamic. I only used 1 tbsp instead of 2 and I didn’t use as much olive oil. I also used white wine instead of chicken stock.  I really need to buy some of that!

Looks kind of messy but it was delicious!

This recipe is very light and you can add or subtract any of the ingredients to your liking. You can subtract half of the brown sugar and regular sugar if you like. Last time I made this I only added 2 tbsp of brown sugar and it was just as good!  Here are 17 Holiday Health Tips for staying on track for the holidays. Of course having treats in moderation is perfectly fine. I love my treats 🙂


Do you have any holiday baking traditions??
