Hi Guys! I’d like to start off with letting you know that the transition into a healthier lifestyle starts with eating real food. Eliminate processed, high sugar, high saturated fat food. The longer the shelf life, the worse it is for your body. Reading labels is important and the ingredients should be simple and easy to read. Below are some of the recipes I enjoy. They’re not only healthy and delicious but convenient if you are pressed for time.

Breakfast:

Overnight oats are fun because you can add anything in them to keep them interesting and tasty and the oats soak up all the flavor making it so much more delicious! The picture below has 1/3 cup of old fashioned oats, 1/3 cup of NF plain Greek yogurt, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1tsp of stevia, 2 tsp of natural peanut butter, half banana, ¼ cup blackberries, 2 strawberries ½ tbsp. flaxseed meal, ½ tbsp. chia seeds! So easy to prepare, and delicious! You just leave it in the fridge overnight or over a couple hours in the day, and the oats soak up all the flavors and taste delicious!

Protein pancakes: I blended in blender 1 medium banana, 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder, 2 egg whites, about 1 tsp baking powder, maybe like 1 tbsp of stevia, 1/2tbsp Greek yogurt, 2 Tbsp old fashioned oats, little splash of water if the batter is too thick, and a little Himalayan salt. Then just cook on pan like a pancake! Top with natural peanut butter/almond butter, greek yogurt, or agave/honey

Spaghetti Squash and meatballs in tomatoes sauce. Cut spaghetti squash in half, bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees (if squash noodles are still hard, can microwave for about 5 minutes or more till squash noodles are soft). Pull the noodles out with a fork as pictured. season to taste salt/pepper etc.
