Peanut Butter and Honey Toast

What You Need:

1 piece of whole wheat toast
1 tsp peanut butter
Honey

Directions:

  1. Toast bread in the toaster.
  2. Spread peanut butter.
  3. Drizzle honey lightly over toast.
  4. Enjoy!

Tip:

You can use almond butter instead if you’d like! I like to have it in the morning with my omelet (if I have the extra yellow container). If you like a little kick, try having just the bread toasted with some hot sauce (then you can avoid the extra tsp if you don’t have any leftover for your day.)

Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal

Blueberry Walnut Oatmeal

Ha! Who knew that when I wasn’t even thinking about eating healthy, there WAS something in my diet that was healthy?! I did used to eat those pre-flavored oatmeal options in a package, which I know are just awful for you. I started to try to make a healthier version, and I have made a few changes to fit my new lifestyle, but this has always been one of my favorite breakfast options! So tasty!!!!

What You Need:

1/4 cup quick rolled oats
1 cup blueberries
2 tbsp crushed walnuts
1/2 cup water
Cinnamon
Honey

Directions:

  1. Put quick rolled oats, blueberries, walnuts, cinnamon, honey, and water in a bowl. Mix together.
  2. Place in the microwave and cook on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Mix well when finished and let cool.
  4. Enjoy!

21-Day Fix Container Counts:

Oatmeal – 1 yellow
Blueberries – 1 purple
Walnuts – 1 orange

Tip:

You can add any fruit you like in your oatmeal. Raspberries and blackberries are also delicious. Create a mixture, too! The more flavor you add to your oatmeal, the better!

 

 

Blueberry Ricotta Loaf

Blueberry Ricotta Loaf

I am all about sweet treats, and I am all about our challenge group that shares sweet treats that they have tried and given the thumbs up! I love blueberries and I love ricotta, so you really can’t go wrong with this one. I love the diversity. You can eat it warm or you can eat it cold. And get this, when I took it out of the oven and cut a piece to try it for the first time, my husband said that it tasted just like his mom’s homemade blueberry muffins! Ok, so you don’t know what that means, but OMG – that means the world! Those are his favorite muffins ever! That’s huge! This is delicious and tastes totally different warm than it does cold, which is awesome. Again, changing it up… love it!

What You Need:

 

1 cup part-skim ricotta
1 whole egg
2 tbsp whole wheat flour
1.5 tbsp raw honey
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 mini loaf pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix all ingredients except blueberries.
  3. Spray your mini loaf pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  4. Take most of your blueberries and place them at the bottom of the pan, saving some to add to the top of the loaf.
  5. Pour batter evenly in the pan and add the remaining blueberries to the top, pressing them into the batter slightly.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Serve warm or chilled.

21-Day Fix Container Count:
(makes 2 servings)

Ricotta Cheese – 1 red
Blueberries – 1/2 purple

Tip:

You have to try half warm and then half chilled! You can use the warm version as a breakfast type muffin/loaf and the cold version as a dessert! SOOOOO yummy! Enjoy!

 

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Banana Oatmeal Pancakes

Sundays are always special to me. We are all home. It’s our family time, so I love to switch up our breakfast routine and make something special that we ALL love… PANCAKES.

But, well, I really don’t want to use a box of pancake mix, so here’s a healthy (and equally awesome) alternative. Enjoy!!!

  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1 banana
  • 4 eggs
  • Dash of cinnamon and vanilla extract
  • Optional:  Honey or Maple Syrup

Directions:

  1. Blend oatmeal until it becomes the consistency of flour- can still be lumpy
  2. Add the 4 eggs, 1 banana, and cinnamon and vanilla extract and blend until mixed.
  3. Heat non-stick skillet and spray with olive oil spray.
  4. Makes 3 good-sized pancakes per serving.

  6. Enjoy!

21-Day Fix Container Counts:

Oatmeal – 1 yellow
