These are delightful! Enjoy!
Make today amazing!!!
1 1/2 cups oat flour
If you know me at all, you know I am on the ” go go go”! Making it happen as a wife, mom and fitness professional. All the while personal training my self and checking goals off my list. It is easy to get busy and make the excuse ” I don’t have time” to eat clean. I don’t have time to prep my meals like that. But you do! You just have to make it a priority. If it is important to you to live as healthy, fit and balanced as you can… Then you will make it happen, no excuses. In an effort to get away from the easy ‘ go to’ protein bar as a snack, cause I’m in a hurry… I have been baking up a batch of clean bars or muffins each week. With my marathon training and my husband’s half iroman training, nutrition is key. For our family, it’s the total package- good eats and being active ALWAYS, it’s our lifestyle. Make the choice and make it happen!
Here’s what is baking today:
1cup oat flour
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
Pinch of sea salt
3 ripe bananas
2 egg whites
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks
With a mixer, blend bananas and egg whites. Add applesauce and honey.
Slowly add the dry ingredients. Stir in choc chunks.
Pour in 8×8 baking dish. Bake at 350 until top is golden. About25-30 mins.
Enjoy! They are just enough sweet to get rid of the sweettooth I have :).

Fill cup up with almond milk
1s protein powder chocolate syntha six

I made a yummy creation last night! I was inspired by my friend who post about spaghetti squash… Hmmm, never had it. Let’s see what I can do with it! Here it is:
1 large spaghetti squash
Organic Marinara Sauce
Extra lean ground turkey
1 pkg Lean turkey and 1pkg Turkey Italian sausage (cut it up)
1 Onion, mushrooms, 1 green pepper
Fat free mozzarella cheese
Garlic Herb and Italian seasoning
Set oven at 375. Pierce squash several times with knife and bake 1 hr.
Remove from oven and remove seeds. Then scoop out all of the spaghetti squash. Season with seasonings.
Saute chopped onions, green peppers and mushrooms in a touch of water. Season.
Saute ground turkey and turkey sausage in a pan.
Combine sauce and meat and simmer on low.
In a casserole dish layer squash, meat, veggies. Again squash, meat, veggies. Then top with fat free mozzarella cheese and bake for 15-20 mins.
Delightful! A good clean meal!
We have come to a close of yet another year. I encourage you to sit back and reflect upon all you have accomplished. Be grateful for the greatness that came your way. Be thankful for the challenges you have had overcome. As you trainer and fitness professional, I want you to take a good look at your 2011 fitness goals. Did you achieve your goals? Did you surpass your goals? Did you fall short? Did you set enough goals for yourself? Were they challenging, yet achievable goals? Did you give it your all? Did you stay focused on the prize? Just take a few moments to take it all in. I also encourage you to do the same for your personal, professional and family goals. My husband and I take time out, just the two of us, to talk about all of the above. It’s awesome to see just how many goals we reached and where we had areas of opportunity. With it all out in front of us we can pinpoint where we need improvement in the year to come. We reflect, absorb and appreciate the awesomeness of it all. It’s pretty fantastic to see how God has moved in our lives.
With a New Year ahead of us we are given an opportunity to start fresh. Put this last year behind us and look forward to today. Live for the moment. Treat each day like it’s your last and enjoy it to your fullest. Reset a new vision, mission and goals. No goal is considered insignificant and my friends, no goal is ever too big. You can do and be anything you want to.
I believe in every person that crosses my path. I know what it takes to achieve your fitness goals and I am chomping at the bit to motivate you to hit all of them in 2012. This the year that WE WILL MAKE CHANGE. If you want it GET IT. Run a 5k, 10 k or a marathon for that matter. Sign up for a Metro Dash or Warrior Dash. Enter your first fitness competition. The sky is the limit. Accountability and Consistency is the focus for MMM in 2012. Business is growing and I am fulfilling my life’s mission of sharing my passion with as many individuals as I can. It is my journey to motivate, coach and guide you to the change you want! I want to see the goals for next year at the beginning of this week to come! I want you to picture each of those goals already achieved. Believe in yourself, have faith and hit the ground running… the only thing standing in your way is YOU. No excuses. A more balanced, stronger, healthier YOU is right around the corner.
Here’s to a Happy New Year! Here is to making choice to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
