Tasty Snacks Tuesdays is one of my favorite days of the week. I just love all these healthy snacks recipes. I guess it could be because I love food so much but honestly, if you are making all these healthy recipes that I have been posting on My Pinboards, then you are probably just as happy as I am on Tuesdays.
Actually my morning snack today was this amazingly delicious Protein Oatmeal Casserole. It is like a platter of goodness. Its healthy, comforting, tasty, fruity and just simply divine. I had this with a good cup of coffee (thank goodness for my Keurig), and man was I one happy camper.
What I love about this healthy snack is that I have my protein, healthy carbs and healthy fats all in one dish. It doesn’t get better or easier than that. And it was so easy to make.
Nothing beats being prepared peeps. That’s why I give you all these healthy recipes and I always tell you to PLAN PLAN PLAN. Eating healthy and getting great results is EASY when you are prepared and when you can TRULY ENJOY it.
Nothing SUCKS more (excuse my language), than feeling deprived, hungry and miserable. There is no need to feel deprived and eat bland and boring food in order to get great results. So stop thinking and talking about it and saying “one of these days I’m going to make one of Michelle’s recipes“, and start actually making them. I promise you won’t regret it.
I post healthy recipes every week. If you have missed them, you can find them all on My Pinterest Boards and also I post the updated on My Facebook Page. By the way, thanks to all of you who read my blogs and actually make the recipes and are coming back on My Facebook Page to post pictures of the meals and your comments. I love hearing from you.
By the way, before I give you the recipe, I just want to give you some tips that will help you if you are trying to lose weight, get leaner, get more definition, feel more energy, get healthier, and more toned.
Because it’s not just about cooking even though it’s a big part of it.
I have found that a lot of people are “STUCK” with their weight loss because they are eating some of the wrong foods.
So I have to make sure you are not eating one or more of foods on this list. Because if you are, it can be completely SABOTAGING your results. Yes, it can totally be true that you can be working your butt off at the gym 6 days a week, eating super healthy (as you think), but if you are eating one or more of these foods, you will NOT BE ABLE TO LOSE WEIGHT. The reason is because these foods though some may think are healthy or not so bad, are actually very inflammatory.
Inflammation in the digestive track makes it incredibly hard if not impossible to burn fat. So in order to be able to burn fat so you can lose weight effectively, its crucial that you take these foods out of your diet.
This is so important and makes such a huge impact on your results that I decided to compile these foods into a PDF for you. So go to the following link where you can download this information for free. I also added a list of 5 Foods that are NECESSARY for you to include in your diet if you want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET TONED. Foods that you should eat daily!
I also took the liberty to share with you a short video of my favorite 5 ABS EXERCISES. The ones that have gotten me ABS after having 2 kids (daughter is 15 months) and I never had them before. Here is the link so you can download the PDF and get the VIDEO. Start applying it right now. Take those 5 foods out of your KITCHEN immediately! LINK TO PDF & VIDEO
Ok, enough lecturing about planning, here is the recipe.
