HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!

So excited for everything to come this year. I pray you all stay on this journey here with me and you’ll continue to get all of me. I don’t really do resolutions but, I will say that I want to be better and eventually my BEST for me and all of you. Take care, God bless and LET’S GET IT THIS YEAR!!!!

Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats

Hey everyone!

This is a recipe that I’ve been going back and forth to get it right and I LOVED IT for breakfast this morning. Definitely filling, fiber packed and nutrient dense. Let me know how you do with your own version. You can make as many flavors as you would like, just go for it. The only exception is to have equal amounts of oats/milk ratio and keep the layering method the same. Take care and try this for breakfast asap. 

Desk Snacks

I don’t know about anyone else BUT, snacking at work is REAL! The stress and anxiety of the work day makes some of us, me included, snack/munch mindlessly. I try to keep the healthiest snacks in my desk at work. This not only helps me cut down on calories but also on those random hunger pangs that seem to appear only when dealing with tough situations. Here is a list of my ‘essentials’:

  1. Nuts – preferably rich in Omegas and protein. Almonds and walnuts are examples
  2. Nutrient rich cereal – make sure it’s tasty with or without milk! I like Raising Bran, anything Kashi, Fiber One and Great Grains (but watch the portion sizes!)
  3. Fruit cups in fruit juice only – this is in addition to any fresh fruits and veggies I carry in my lunch bag
  4. Bottled water – hydration is key and very helpful in controlling hunger. My job has a water cooler but I usually keep a bottle or 2 just in case.
  5.  Popcorn and rice cakes – both are in salty and sweet varieties (some are both!)

The Grocery Store…

It can be the most stressful, time-consuming, bad decision encouraging day of our nutrition lives, grocery shopping day. Using these tips, I was able to turn this day from one I avoided until I was starving (or broke!) to one that is manageable AND affordable. I hope to create a video on this in the future that will be shared on Facebook to the group Busy Nutrition. Check it out! Also, don’t forget to subscribe! God Bless you!
