My favorite oatmeal recipe! 👌🏼
CREAMY VANILLA ROLLED OATS🍌💗
This warm breakfast is cooked with chunks of banana for sweetness and drizzled with Flaxseed Oil which is good for brain health and for reducing inflammation (cancer prevention)😊😉 I store my Flaxseed Oil in the fridge to prevent it from going rancid!
Comforting, satisfying and perfect for the cold winter months ❄️⛄️🌨 ✨Vegan &
Here's the recipe
👇🏼👇🏼 Creamy Vanilla Rolled Oats
1 cup gluten free rolled oats
4 cups unsweetened vanilla non-dairy milk
1 ripe banana, chopped
2 – 4 Tablespoons coconut sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Drizzle of flax oil
Place oats in a medium size saucepan with non-dairy milk, chopped banana, vanilla, 2 Tablespoons of coconut sugar and sea salt. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat. Cover and simmer, stirring constantly until oats are soft and creamy, about 15 minutes. ✨
Cooking time may vary depending on the oats you purchase, so also refer to cooking instructions on your oats. ✨
When finished cooking, oats should be creamy and thick, but still have some liquid around the edges of the saucepan.
Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding 1-2 more Tablespoons of coconut sugar. ✨
Serve warm topped with a drizzle of flax oil.
With cold weather abounding and no end in sight, I have been craving all the soup and stew, lately! It’s the ultimate fall/winter comfort food, in my opinion and we always seem to have a pot of it on the go for dinner or leftovers in the colder months. It tends to be easy, too, which is good for this new-mama-of-two as I get back into my kitchen routine (we’re just about through my #freezermeals - and 6 weeks in, it’s about time!) and aren’t soup leftovers just the best? We’re enjoying this one all week long:
Italian Sausage + Veggie Soup
1 lb Italian sausage, chicken or pork (sliced or crumbled)
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 medium zucchini, chopped
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped
1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
1 branch rosemary
6 cups chicken broth
sea salt to taste
1. Add all ingredients to slow cooker. Cook on low heat 6-8
hours. Season to taste and serve.
1. Add all ingredients to instant pot. Cook for 30 minutes on manual. Vent, season to taste and serve..
1. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a medium stock pot. Add sausage and cook until no longer pink. Remove using a slotted spoon and set aside.
2. Add onion and celery to pot. Cook until translucent. Stir in garlic. Add zucchini, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, rosemary and chicken broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and let cook 20-30 minutes, until sweet potatoes are soft. Season to taste and serve.
today’s run was boring, but even on the December days when you don’t feel like working out, remember... it’s a PRIVILEGE!!! Your health, your gym membership, your ability to work out, the day in itself. Here’s something slightly less boring, my BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP recipe which is super easy to make, cost very little and keeps your belly warm and full for several servings!
Select a nice size butternut squash🧡slice in half, remove seeds and roast for 40min at 375 🧡 peel and cut into 1 inch chunks🧡sauté one medium onion (diced) and 4 tablespoons of butter for about 8min🧡add 5 cups of chicken or veggie stock and butternut squash chunks🧡cook for about 20min🧡spoon out squash and purée until smooth🧡return squash to pot and season (salt, pepper, cayenne, nutmeg, cinnamon) and 2 tablespoons of olive oil🧡
add rosemary, mushrooms or heavy cream if you’d like, swap chicken stock for veggie stock and Earth balance for butter and you’ve gone Vegan. Enjoyed this for three evenings, which freed up time in the evening so it’s a great recipe for busy parents! #workoutwednesday#fallrecipe#butternutsquash#marathontraining#lunchrun

Got this gem of a salad from @nourishedbykale! I swapped out a few things because it's what was on sale! 😉 In the past salads didn't appeal to me in the winter. I realized it's because I've been doing them all wrong! I love pairing a salad with roasted veggies!!! Organic red kale, chopped and massaged (helps with digestion) with olive oil, lemon juice, s&p, & nutritional yeast.
Roasted butternut squash
Turmeric quinoa (add 1/4 tsp of turmeric while cooking, and then add about a little over a teaspoon of coconut oil and pepper)
Sprinkled cashews on top
*not pictured-served with avocado & balsamic vinegar.

Baked apples are ready! Sometimes I bake. It calms me down and helps to clear my mind. Baking... It's a nice slow activity that you can put your focus into to reconnect with yourself, your senses, enjoyment and goodness. What activity does this for you? Everyone deserves to find one. 🍎Now, If you saw my story yesterday you might recognize these apples! .
And I'm #willingtoshare ! Here's an easy 4-ingredient recipe for baked apples (or pears for that matter!)
Apples 🍎, lemon juice 🍋, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Slice or cube the apples and top with the other ingredients in the proportions You like (for sweeter add more brown sugar or a dash of sugar). Stir it up. Bake in the oven at 350 for about 25 mintutes stirring it up and checking occasionally. This also happens to make your kitchen smell really good. Use to top salads, for delicious apple cinnamon oatmeal, pancakes or creamy desserts (my fave almond milk ice cream).
What helps calm you down and clear your mind? What are you #willingtoshare ? Remember use what you have. Start now... share whatever you can to help make things for your audience simple. ...I had some apples and a few upcycled baking dishes. As Butters of Southpark once said, "lu lu lu I got some apples 🍎. Lu lu lu you got some too. 🎶"❤️
