Tuna Recipe

Who says eating healthy has to be boring, bland, or complex? I whipped this beautiful combo for lunch today for the kiddos, and it was SO delicious! Easy, fast, delicious and nutritious! Serve in romaine leaves for a fun spin. Enjoy!!!

Peanut Butter Cup Shakeology

Are you concerned about how in the world you're going to steer clear of all the Easter goodies? Already thinking about robbing your kid's Easter baskets? How awesome would it be this Easter to enjoy all the peanut butter-y chocolate goodness without sabotaging your fitness progress!? This has to be one of my all-time favorite go-to recipes! Completely satisfies that sweet tooth, and I feel great knowing I'm getting all the daily nutrition my body needs. This is really great with Almond milk in place of the dairy, for those of you watching your dairy intake.

No-Bake Energy Balls

This is one of my most REQUESTED recipes, by FAR. And for good reason; they're just THAT GOOD! Healthy, easy to whip up, they freeze well ( I have to hide them in the freezer just so we don't eat them all right away, but they are also dangerously good frozen, too!)and they make the perfect snack for the little ones. I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Oatmeal Pancakes; 21-Day FIX Meal Plan

21-Day Fix breakfast!  I LOVE this meal, and it only uses one yellow and one red, 1 gray tsp.

I use this most days, as it fills me up and offers that boost of carbs and protein that I need first thing in the morning!  This is my version of the eggs and oats from the 3-day Quick Start, but is SO good that I use it almost daily!

So what I do is make up a batch of steel cut oats on my meal prep days (usually Sundays).  I use steel cut oats because I am TOTALLY in LOVE with the firmer texture, and they are the least "processed" oats you can get.  And it's just so easy to make them!  Add water and cook on the stovetop for about 30 minutes.  If you want them a bit softer, you can add more liquid (water).  Then I portion my oats in 6 containers along with cinnamon to taste and 3-4 egg whites, and sweetener of choice (optional).  {{I love to top with a bit of honey right before serving.}}  Whisk this mixture up, and stack up your containers in the fridge until that morning.  Get out your frying pan, melt 1 tsp. coconut oil, and FRY your pancake until lightly browned and set.  Flip, and cook an additional 1-2 minutes on med. heat.  Plate it and ENJOY!!! And yes, you can enjoy FRIED foods on the 21-Day Fix Meal plan!!!

Oatmeal Pancake


1/2 c. (prepared) steel cut oats
3-4 egg whites
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp. coconut oil

Combine prepared oats and egg whites with cinnamon and sweetener (optional).  Melt coconut oil in a pan.
Fry your oatmeal pancake in the oil until lightly browned and set.  Flip and cook an additional 1-2 minutes. Top with fruit (purple container) if you wish.  ENJOY!  

Quinoa PB & J

Did you know that today is NATIONAL PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY day?!?  I didn't know there was such a thing!  How I missed that one is beyond me...anyone who knows me KNOWS I have a {{major}} weakness with peanut butter ANYTHING!  So I took it upon myself to come up with a HEALTHY, clean-eating approved, DELICIOUS, kid-friendly version of this all-American staple.  And WALLAH!  Success!!!!  This is SO outrageously good...my kids said that this is their NEW favorite meal and snack!  Makes for one happy mommy!!  And the really great thing is that it's SO versitile; use your imagination and family's preferences for add-ins so that they don't get bored with it!
