A New Twist on an Old Recipe

27 Aug

This recipe is so creative and absolutely AMAZING for anyone who gives me the excuse that they don’t have time to eat breakfast in the morning!! I love love love it! This recipe was found on one of my fave bloggers website Oh She Glows.

Portable Baked Oatmeal – SNACK SIZE!!


  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp chia seed (or ground flax)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of fine grain sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 peach (or other fruit like apple or banana), chopped
  • 1/3 cup walnuts or pecans (or use seeds for nut-free), chopped

Portable Oatmeal


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grab 6 mini mason jars (125ml/4.2 oz) and remove lids. Alternatively, you can use 8oz jars and make 3-4 servings.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the oats, chia seed (or ground flax), cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder.
  • Add the almond milk, vanilla, and maple syrup and stir until combined. Fold in the chopped fruit and nuts.
  • Keep stirring the mixture so some of the milk will absorb. Divide the mixture between the 6 mason jars (about 1/3 cup mixture each), leaving about 1.5 cm at the top. If any milk remains at the bottom of the bowl, divide it between the jars. Gently push the oatmeal down with your fingers.
  • Bake at 350F for 22-25 minutes on a small baking sheet, or until slightly firm and golden on top. Allow to cool completely for about an hour or longer. Add any toppings you desire, place on lid, and into the fridge.


Nutritional info: (per jar, makes 6) 137 cals, 7 grams fat (1 g sat fat), 47 mg sodium, 18 grams carbs, 3 grams fibre, 7 grams sugar, 4 grams protein.

To add another 4 grams of protein, simply add a tablespoon of natural peanut butter on top.

When you’re in a rush, grab your mason jar, heat it up (with the lid off) and away you go.  Or bring it to work with you and heat it up at the office when you get there!!  No excuses!


Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day!

Meatless Monday Recipe – Delicious Green Smoothie

7 Jul

Who says a meal always needs to have food to chew?  I am finding myself overusing my Nutribullet A LOT these days!!  I’ve gone through 3 in one year!!  Have I mentioned that I am in desperate need of a Vitamix?  Anyway, my point is, when it’s warm outside or I am in a rush or I just want to not feel over full and heavy while I am running around and teaching yoga 3 times a day, I find a smoothie really helps hold me over.  Aside from my morning protein shake that I have every single morning post workout, I like to squeeze in a green smoothie during the day and this one I took from Liquid Nutrition‘s Namaste and kinda made it my own…

Using your Nutribullet, Vitamix or blender, add all these ingredients together and mix.


Kale (4-5 pieces)green smoothie
1 Banana
1 Apple
1 tbsp all natural Peanut Butter
1/2 cup Almond Milk
1/2 cup Coconut Water
A few pieces of Ice

Blend and Enjoy!!!

Until next time,

Have a fit and fabulous day!
