Strawberry Shortcake Muffins!

Only 93 calories & makes 12 muffins.

***** DO NOT USE PAPER LINERS, the muffins will stick. Use either tin liners (take the paper out of the tin liners), a silicone muffin tin or the rubber liners*****

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups of Oats (old fashioned kind NOT the quick cooking kind)
  • 1 cup of Fage greek yogurt 0%
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cups of a sweetener of your choice that measures the same as sugar or you could do 1/4 cup baking stevia sweetener.I used sucanat which is why my muffins were darker colored.
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/ 1/2 cups of strawberries (I did 1 cup diced for inside the muffins and then 1/2 cup sliced for the top!)
  • Optional: 1 tsp lemon juice (I decided to not use it because I forgot to haha)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees & line 12 muffin tins.
  2. Put all ingredients except the strawberries in a blender or food processor & blend until oats are smooth.
  3. Pour the mixture into a medium to large bowl & stir in the 1 cup diced strawberries.
  4. Pour batter into cupcake liners. Place the remaining 1/2 cup sliced strawberries on top of muffins.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out.

Lunch!
128 calories & 12.36 grams of protein!
It’s so simple and easy to make! All you need is:
1 peach
1/2 cup non-fat cottage cheese
Directions:
Cut up the peach into 4 sections (because it has a pit, it’s easier to cut this way)
Dice up as much of the peach as you’d like to mix in with your cottage cheese. The rest of the peach can just be sliced and put on the side to be ate however you’d like.
Mix the diced peach and cottage cheese together in a bowl!

Simple shrimp salad!
Ingredients:
2 cups lettuce
7 small shrimp
7 grape tomatoes
1/4 medium cucumber
1/4 green pepper
Salad Dressing: be sure to use fat-free salad dressing & don’t pour it all over your salad! I always use 2 tbsp of dressing. And if you are out to eat just ask for the dressing on the side & dip your salad to eliminate excess calories. A lot of full fat dressings are filled with calories & defeat the purpose of eating a healthy salad. My favorite fat-free dressing is Market Pantry Zesty Italian fat-free dressing, it’s so good!!

Fish oil!

I take three fish oil pills a day, one with every meal! Fish oil pills contain omega-3 fatty acids which have many health benefits because it’s an essential fatty acid. This helps with weight loss and better hair & nails!


The omega-3s in fish oil can:

  • lower triglycerides
  • reduce blood pressure
  • lower the risk of heart disease & heart attack

Coffee!

Yes, the flavor packed frozen drink my taste amazing, but do you really know what’s in it? Most people don’t look into the amount of calories that are jam packed into these frozen treats because they’re at the coffee shop, but some of these drinks have as much Saturated Fats as 9 strips of bacon… ick!

If you’re looking for a cold drink, try a small iced coffee for only 60 calories! If you like your coffee sweet try adding a splash of skim milk and/or a packet of Truvia, it’s much better for you than Splenda which contains arsenic which is used for Wood Preservation… I don’t know about you but that does not sound appetizing.

My all time favorite drink is a Soy Latte from Starbucks, I absolutely love it! Although it doesn’t taste anything near a Snowdrift, it’s still a great hot coffee drink that’s a healthier alternative. (I only like Soy Latte’s from Starbucks because they use a different soy milk than caribou & other places which gives it a better taste, I don’t recommend buy one from Caribou.)

Breakfast made simple!
141 calories & 8.6g protein 
1 egg
1 piece of Village Hearth Light 12 Grain bread
1/2 a medium orange
If you are hungry after eating this then feel free to eat the other half of the orange, it’s only 31 extra calories & fruit is important to have in the morning. Don’t deprive yourself if you’re still hungry! (With a whole orange the calories are 172 & 9.2g protein.)
Quick tip: before eating any meal, drink a glass of water to prevent over eating so you can stop when you’re full!
