Banana Oat Muffins

Sometimes as you come down the homestretch of a workout program you just need to kick it up a notch!

22 Minute HC Meal Plan week 6.jpg

I’m in the midst of week 6 of the new Bootcamp style program 22 MINUTE HARD CORPS and week 2 of my Bikini Bootcamp. But if I’m being real with you all…I have an untamable sweet tooth!!!

Ok – so its kind of tamable – BUT I love when I can find clean alterntives to old favorites and that’s exactly what I got with these muffins!

WHAT YOU NEED:

-2 ripe bananas
-2 cups oats
-1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
-2 eggs
-1.5 tsp vanilla
-1 tsp cinnamon
-dash of Himalayan sea salt
-1 1/4 cups plain Greek yogurt
-Chocolate chips, nuts, sprinkles, and pirate flags at your own discretion 😜

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Blend all ingredients together (I had to stop and stir about 3x)

Pour into 12 (lined) muffin tins

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes

Enjoy!!!

Banana oat muffins with recipe and website

Now I will admit – these were not on my Bikini Bootcamp meal plan…initially…however as you can see form the list above (minus the chips & sprinkles) this is totally clean!

The container equivalents were close to my Mancakes – which include a combo of oats, egg/egg whites and fruit…as does the above with some greek yogurt as well.

The more I thought about it this made 12 muffins.

The ingredients included 4 “purples” – 4 “yellows” – (almost) 3 “reds”

Sometimes the “fix portion breakdown” doesn’t quite line up exactly but my estimate is 3 muffins would yield you 1 Purple, 1 yellow and 1 red not counting the sprinkle of chocolate chips!

What no one tells you is in the bottom of the challenge pack

Happy Valentines Day!

Yesterday we packed up the fam, joined forces with some friends and traveled to State College PA to visit a good friend, my business success partner, who has been hit with a few curve balls of life!

And well, you can’t surprise a friend on Valentines Day weekend without showing up with a little treat!

2016-02-13 10.25.28I have been trying to really limit my dairy intake after a recommendation from my dermatologist and she is on a gluten free diet so I decided to take the best of both worlds and whip up a new recipe of shakeo no bakes!

The cinnamon most definitely spiced things up and the rice krispies added a nice little crunch! See HERE for the full recipe.

And while the cookies were a hit and the day was a blast what I really came home focusing on is what I found at the bottom of that challenge pack box nearly 2 years ago.

Like I said above, this trip was to visit my business success partner – who is now one of my closest friends who I talk to on a daily basis.

But before we became really amazing friends, business building MOMpreneurs and a support system for each other – we were CHALLENGERS – together – in a CHALLENGE GROUP – trying to fight off those last few post baby pounds.

We both contacted our now coach, purchased the 21-day fix challenge pack, and got to work! We were bonded on that common goal and through the success of the group & reaching our goals we began to realize there’s so much more in that box than a workout program & meal replacement shake. We could pay it forward and share what we learned to help others!

We were challengers who found a passion for supporting one another and we became coaches. It wasn’t part of what I expected from that challenge pack box but what I soon realized is that I gained so much more than I bargained for!

Today we spend our time helping other MOMS and other WOMEN reach their health & fitness goals and build their own businesses from home. I finally feel like I have a purpose beyond someone else’s employee and beyond the roles of a wife and mom.

I have the opportunity to make a DIFFERENCE in this world and so can you!

My team is hosting an open house next Tuesday, February 23rd and you’re invited to join us! To hear about how I went from a CPA, Accountant – to Stay at home mom – to Work from Home MOMboss!

*Must not be working with another coach

Do you want to be a stay at home mom

Vegan Chocolate No Bakes

I guess you can say I am a bit of a cookie monster!

Recently I have been trying to limit my dairy intake at the recommendation of my dermotologist so out went my favorite chocolate shakeology and cafe latte and in came Vegan Chocolate Shakeo!!!! And I will say – I am adjusting quite well!

Who says you need gluten or dairy for a good no bake cookie?!?!

I was a bit hesitant as I LOVE my Black & White no bakes but when life changes you gotta roll with the punches and I am happy to say I like these ones even better than my original!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 2 Scoops Vegan Chocolate Shakeology (regular would work fine if that’s what you have!)
  • 1 Cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Honey
  • 1 Cup Oats
  • 1/3 cup rice krispies
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract (or almond extract)

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

  1. Melt peanut butter and honey over a low heat
  2. Stir in the vanilla, oats and cinnamon
  3. Add Shakeology
  4. Stir in rice krispies
  5. Scoop or spoon onto wax paper, let cool and enjoy!

These freeze well or can be stored in an air tight container for up to a week!

ENJOY!!!

Clean Mocha Pudding

Clean mocha pudding image.jpgIf anyone can find a clean sweet treat — its this gal!

I love my sweets but I also love eating clean, fueling my body right and feeling the effects of superfoods and clean eats in my bod!

So how do I keep that sweet tooth satisfied?

I create little combos like this one!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 “red” Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Scoop Cafe Latte Shakeology
  • 1 – 3 tsp All natural PB
  • 1-3 Tbsp Unsweetened Almond milk

OPTIONAL

  • Granola, Coconut flakes, chocolate chips

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Now my husband has perfected the science behind the combo…and swears you HAVE to do it in this order. I on the other hand put it all in the bowl and mix it up!

  1. Measure one red container of plain greek yogurt and empty into a bowl
  2. Add desired amount of PB (1 tsp is plenty but my husband typically does 1 TBS or 3 tsp) and stir until combined
  3. Add 1 scoop Cafe Latte Shakeology and mix well
  4. Add a few splashes of unsweetened almond milk until you reach the desired consistency
  5. Top with desired toppings or eat as is!

ENJOY!!!

21-day fix/Hammer&Chisel/Insanity Max:30  container equivalents:

2 Reds, 1 tsp (I consider the splash of almond milk a freebie!) 

If you’re looking for a smaller meal or snack – simply half the greek yogurt and/or the Shakeology amount to reduce the reds. 

My husband falls into the highest bracket and will often do 2 reds of greek yogurt with one scoop cafe latte and 3 tsp PB – no milk. The combo options are yours!
