Many people think that oatmeal has to be gross and boring. Me personally love experimenting with oats. They are so versatile! With me using them to make muffins, cake, protein, and granola bars. I even use them in shakes and in this case, for breakfast!

1/2 mashed banana
1/2 scoop chocolate whey protein
1 tbs peanut butter
1/2 cup old fashion oats
Skim milk
Cinnamon
Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds
Add walnuts raisins and an egg.

This was the best breakfast. I’m not even kidding. Try it! And try making your own creations!

Pasta alternative: Spaghetti Squash

So I decided to try something new (as always,yea what’s new lol). I made pasta using spaghetti squash. I didn’t miss the pasta at all! Here’s how I did it:

20120613-150923.jpg

Took one spaghetti squash and carefully cut it in half. Then scooped out the seeds on the inside.

20120613-151030.jpg

Then I put the halves face down in a baking pan with about an inch of water and baked in the oven on 350 for about 45 minutes.

20120613-151124.jpg

After it was done. I took it out the oven and used a fork scraping long ways inside the squash. It easily forms spaghetti!

20120613-151224.jpg
Until you have this! Then from here you can make your own pasta dish.

Cheat Meals

Many people ask me do I cheat on my diet. Absolutely! Just because I have made this lifestyle change to clean eating does not mean I still do not have cravings for the things I used to eat on a regular. It’s all about moderation though. I have had cheat meals about 2 times a month. Another question I get is don’t you feel guilty?? Heck no!! Cheat meals are not meant for you to feel guilty. It’s meant to be enjoyed. It keeps one sane. There are rules to cheating though. The rules I live by:
1. It’s only a cheat meal not a Cheat day. Eating anything you want and as much as you want an entire day is enough to kill the work you did all week.
2. Still have the cheat in moderation. I got Ice cream last week and as much as I wanted to get a second serving of it I didn’t! That’s crazy. I have to keep my mind on track and going crazy like that would only throw me off.

Granola Bars

Ingredients:
1/2 cup Natural peanut butter
1/2 cup Honey
2 cup Oats
2 tbs ground flaxseed
1 cup total of whatever you like (example cranberries raising almonds and walnuts)

Directions:
Add in a bowl peanut butter and honey. Heat in microwave about 20 seconds to soften. (can skip this part. May require longer set time in the fridge but makes it easier to stir) Stir in all ingredients. Put in a pan sprayed with non stick cooking spray. Flatten. And let set in fridge for 2 hours. Cut into bars and enjoy! This recipe I made about 18 at 140 calories each!
