I have been meaning to make these muffins for quite some time from the Oh She Glows cookbook and I finally got around to making it.  With 2 kids it sometimes makes it a bit challenging to get any baking done which I absolutely love to do.  It’s therapeutic to me.

If you’re looking to make a healthy muffin here is a great option.  There’s flax, oats, raw honey and some other delicious ingredients.  I added chocolate chips to mine as well because my oldest son inspects his muffins to make sure there are some chips in there.  😉 The recipe only makes about 6 so if want more make sure to double the recipe.

After you’ve made these let me know how you like them.  We gobbled ours up!

With no class tonight we need to eat extra healthy today. Farm fresh green beans. Everything from the farm has more flavour then anything store bought. I love summer farmers markets. Remember everything you eat is a choice. You could choose to have non-balanced meal or you could choose to add a ton of veggies or fruits to your meal. Freedom of choice is a great thing so don’t sabotage it by choosing something you’ll regret. Rose regrets end up being paired with unhappiness which leads to excuse after excuse as to why you can’t do something. Peoples intent to lose weight is usually accompanied by a list long of excuses. I don’t have time to make healthy meals. Meal prep is very simple as long as you clear your schedule for an hour or two. Pre wash and cut all veggies, freeze meals and make a weekly or monthly menu so you know which groceries to shop for and what you’re making. Taking that bit of extra time in the morning or evening to prep for the week or month is all it takes for successful weight loss. 

What healthy choice are you making today?

🔹1/2 cup blueberries

Say what?  How could eating more food possibly make me LOSE weight?  Simple.  By eating more frequently throughout the day you will stabilize your blood sugar levels and your cravings.  You will be less likely to binge eat since this method doesn’t allow your body starve.  Eating whole, nutritious meals and snacks will provide you with a ton of energy to last throughout the day without having to result to caffeine to keep you alert.

Eating less frequently throughout the day will actually sabotage your plan to lose weight.  You’ll feel more sluggish, more hungry and look for the first thing in sight that you don’t have to prepare to munch on.

Here are some tips to try and get more food into your day:

  • Fruits are easy to grab so have these on hand.  If they’re berries, pre-wash and store them in your fridge or freeze them for smoothies so they are easily accessible.
  • pre-wash and cut all of your veggies and place them in resealable bags or containers so you can have a quick snack….perhaps with some homemade hummus?
  • Prepare your meals in advance.  We know how easy it is to pop in a frozen pizza or make chicken strips and fries but if you’re looking for a really nutritious Meal packed full of protein and veggies (with some low GI carbs) package everything into containers or rsealable bags and freeze. When you’re ready to eat take them out the day before and place them in the fridge so you have them ready for the next day’s meals. And make sure to measure out your portions in advance as well.
  • Have some homemade snacks on hand to take with you when you’re in a rush. Try making your own granola bars or trail mix.  Nuts and grapes are easy to grab too. 
  • Try to include a protein in every meal. This will help to keep you fuller longer so you don’t get those small cravings and grab a non-nutritious snack. 
  • Make sure to drink plenty of water with your meals. This will prevent you from over eating and maintain your hydration levels. If you grow tired of water dress it up by making infused water.  Berries, citrus fruit or cucumber are great ways to keep water interesting. And don’t forget, tea is a great way to get your water as well. Stick to rooibos or herbal as they don’t contain any caffeine. 

Now that you’ve got the knowledge to start a successful weight loss program, be proactive.  Start making small changes and keep adding more. You’ll see big results just by changing your diet.  Remeber, successful weight loss is attributed to 80% diet and 20% of exercise.
