Overnight Steel Cut Oats and Weekday Egg Bake

My husbands work has moved offices, so instead of a 40min commute he now has to leave the house at 5:20 am to sit on a bus for an hour.
So to help with cutting down time preparing breakfast we make these two recipes and that is what we eat for breakfast Monday – Friday. For the Oats you can add different fruits after, or maple syrup. We like to put a bit of diary free yogurt and some berries on it.

Here we go:

Overnight Steel Cut Oats:
1/2 Cup Steel Cut Oats (we use Red Mill’s)
1 Gala Apple grated (leave the core out, but I don’t peel mine)
1tbsp Coconut Sugar
1tsp Cinnamon
1 cup of unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
I have a small one quart crock pot that I used to use for queso, I put all the ingredients in and turn it to low at 10pm and my hubby has yummy oatmeal at 4:30am and then he turns it on warm and i have yummy oats at 6am.

Weekday Egg Bake:
the reason I call this weekday egg bake, it cause I make it on Sundays and cut up the portions and then my husband and I heat it up in the morning in the micro wave.

1lb. Ground lean Turkey
2 cups of sliced Mushrooms
4 cups of Baby Spinach
1 Bell Pepper diced
one carton liquid eggwhites (20 servings)

Heat your oven to 350F. Brown the turkey in a pan and season to your liking, once browned add the mushrooms and bell pepper, sautee for a few minutes then add the spinach. Cook until the leaves wilt just a little bit. Then put the mixture into a 9×13 glass pan and add the liquid egg whites. Put in the oven for 40mins. Let slightly cool and cut. Put into a tupper ware and store in fridge.

Healthy Superbowl? Yes Please…

I love a good get together, so we are having friends over for Superbowl Sunday. Can you make it healthy? YES ! of course, cause I don’t wanna blow my hard work that I did this week by counting my calories and the workout in the gym. So here is our Menu for Sunday:

Chili with Kidney Beans
Chips and Salsa
Veggies and Hummus
Buffalo Cauliflower
Zucchini Brownies

I don’t have to eat the chip and the Salsa and since I am making the Chili I know what is in there and I can track it.

Other great alternatives are baked chicken tenders, fruit salad, yogurt dips.

If you can, stay away from fried foods, beer, Queso, Cookies, Chips, Ranch Dressing.

But if you can’t just make sure you hit the Gym hard on Monday.

What I really like about my Journey so far is that I am not on a diet, I completely changed the way I eat. Food is no longer a challenge. I go out and eat at restaurants, and I make better choices, but it doesn’t keep my from living my life. It doesn’t restrict my life anymore.

So please make good choices 😀
