Easy Granola

Easy Granola (1 Yellow, 1 tsp)

6 cups oats
6 T softened Peanut butter
4 T honey
Optional: Sprinkled slivered almonds. 

Mix until oats are coated and clumpy. Bake on 350 for 15 min or so until golden.  Great for use with Fruit and Yogurt for Parfait.

NOTE: counting the almonds as a free in this case, because it's so few just for crunch.

Apple Pie Parfait

Apple Pie Parfait (1Purple, 1Yellow, 1Red

This is one of my favorite snacks.  It tastes like apple pie!  I included 2 variations, as I like this 2 different ways.  Each tastes a bit different, but both are super healthy.

Ingredients: 1 apple, cinnamon, quinoa, Vanilla Greek yogurt 

1. Heat a sauté pan with 1tsp of water. Chop the apples into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle with cinnamon. The pan should be hot enough to soften the apples; don't forget the move them around! 

2. Cook or warm up quinoa, measure and add to a bowl 

3. Add Vanilla Greek yogurt and sprinkle with cinnamon. Stir. 

4. Add cooked apples 

NOTE: If you have plain greek yogurt, add 1 tsp of honey or maple syrup (1 tsp)
Also, can use Granola (pictured on below) as the yellow in place of Quinoa.  Also very yummy.  

Heathy food doesn't have to taste healthy

Hi, I'm Angela, and recently I joined Beachbody as a coach.  I had some amazing results, and wanted to share my successes with others.

I had 3 pregnancies, and gained about 80lbs each time.  I am finally done having kids, and decided NOW was the time to get my body back!  I lost 25 pounds with 21 day fix in just 3 sessions!  I was so ecstatic.

It has completely changed the way I think of food.  It really challenged me to create yumminess inside of the container allowances. I started out by searching and finding 21 day fix recipes, but found myself inventing recipes, and really loving them!

I will be posting several recipes that I have tried, and  absolutely LOVE.

So, that's how this blog was born.  I wanted to create a place that can help others in their fitness journey.   I struggle some days, but the results help me to keep pushing through!

Please let me know if I can help you in your journey to become a healthier you.
