Need a quick and easy breakfast snack? This is just a 4 ingredient mug cake that takes about 3 minutes to make! I got the original recipe from @colbytriolo_youmakeyou Instagram. The only thing I would change is instead of using 1tsp cinnamon, I would just do 1/2t because it was a little too much for me. I also suggest topping it with some Peanut Butter! I used Nuts N' More Pumpkin Spice to compliment this. Yum!!

Spray a mug with Pam. In a separate bowl, mix together all ingredients. Pour batter into mug and microwave 2 minutes. Remove and top with peanut butter or yogurt for extra flavor!
This is by far one of my favorite recipes from Kim Hoeltje! Check out her amazing blog here!
This loaf of bread is super easy to make, and tastes great, especially right out of the oven!

So I was lucky enough to receive some samples of Beechie's Bakehouse brownies and mug cakes. This one is their Tropical Mug Cake, which has a tropical taste and dried pineapple pieces! Yum! All you have to do is add some water, microwave and it's done! I topped mine with vanilla Greek yogurt, Nuts N' More Coconut Peanut Butter (don't forget to use my code 'weightsandwine' for 10% off) and sliced bananas!

Okay so I know it doesn't sound super appealing and you may be like, "Who in their right mind would put egg whites in their oatmeal!?" Well, don't knock it till ya try it! Not only is this packed with protein, but it gives the oatmeal so much volume and makes it a very filling breakfast!

Let me know what you think!!
Same recipe as above, but this is just another variation you can do! This is Coconut Banana!
The only thing I added was some Coconut extract. You can also add banana extract! Then I topped it with sliced bananas and Nuts N' More Coconut peanut butter!

A couple months ago I received the best gift a 25 year old could ask for. A waffle maker. All my life I was deprived of this beautiful little machine and had to resort to pancakes, making me think I liked pancakes more than waffles. But I was deceived. Waffles > Pancakes. #TeamWaffle. Basically. Anyways, I might change my mind in a few months, who knows, but right now, I am on a huge waffle kick.
Waffles don't have to be bad for you either! Actually, the waffles I make are super healthy and packed with protein, AND they also taste good, which is everyone's biggest concern.
Heat waffle iron. Combine everything together and whisk/stir well! Spray waffle iron with cooking spray and pour ingredients in. Wait patiently...keep waiting....almost there...okay go! But make sure to top it with some Nuts N' More* peanut butter and syrup! (I use sugar free).

*Nuts N' More has over 12 different flavors, as you see below I have made Pumpkin Spice waffles (add some pumpkin spice to your batter!), Coconut Peanut Butter (use some coconut extract in your batter!), and Sesame Cranbutter!

I just turned 25 last weekend, and when asked what I wanted for my birthday, I realized I didn't have a waffle maker! Obviously I needed a waffle maker, even though I will always be Team Pancakes no matter what...but it's nice to have a change of scenery every once in a while!
Anyways, Wednesdays I like to make breafkast for dinner, so with my leftover shredded zucchini from my Zoats, I decided to be creative and throw in some zucchini into the batter!
I am obsessed with Stack'd Nutrition pancake/waffle mixes, especially the lemon flavor. It has to be my favorite. Each serving is 230 calories with 25g of protein! All you have to do is add a little water and egg whites. Once I added those, I just threw in 1/2 cup of the shredded zucchini! Then just make your waffle like usual!
The zucchini definitely gave the batter some added volume, so some of the batter spilled over my waffle maker, oops! But the end result was delicious! Like expected, couldn't taste the zucchini at all, and it made the waffles really soft and moist!
Be sure to let your waffle cook a little longer than usual to make sure the zucchini gets soaked up enough!
Okay so I know at first when you hear "zucchini oatmeal" your first thought is probably "ew..." or you make some kind of disgusted face. BUT I promise you, you can't taste the zucchini AT ALL. Think about it, when you eat zucchini bread, do you actually taste the zucchini? No...! Same thing goes for these oats.
I used my typical overnight oats recipe and just added some shredded zucchini. It made the oatmeal super moist and actually sweet! It also gave it a lot of volume and made me full longer!
Definitely will be making my overnight oats like this from now on.
Also, I suggest topping it with some peanut butter, or fruit, more cinnamon, granola, etc. the next morning to give it an extra kick!

I absolutely love protein shakes. To me, they are such a treat! But a very healthy treat. I make my shakes in a way that they almost seem like they shouldn't be healthy for you. Craving a chocolate milkshake? No problem. Check out my Decadent Chocolate Malt recipe here!
Not a fan of chocolate? (Seriously...?) Then try a vanilla base! This shake tastes like Banana Bread and is so tasty you will make it more than once, guaranteed!
Protein shakes are a great way to kick off your morning, giving you a ton of protein to fuel your body and healthy carbs to keep you satisfied!

What to do:
This Thanksgiving weekend felt so long, and I loved it! I honestly did not do much, but I really needed a "lazy" weekend. It was nice not to have plans! Seen as how the month of December is extremely busy for me! So Saturday morning I woke up and decided to make something different for breakfast. This baked oatmeal was the most moist and delicious oatmeal I've ever had! It literally tasted like French Toast!! I will make this again very soon! Super simple to make, the only hard part is waiting for it to bake! But it's worth the wait! I drank some of my Caramel Swirl BrewLaLa coffee while I waited :)
Eating healthy takes commitment, it's a lifestyle.
I love food, that's a given...but I also love to eat healthy. I try to workout three times a week, and eat a lot of protein. These are some snacks, meals, and desserts that are healthy, but also very good! Eating healthy doesn't have to be plain and boring!
