- 1/2 old fashion oats
- 1/2 almond/cashew milk
- tart cherries
- toasted coconut flakes
- chia seeds
- optional- protein powder
Mix your oats and milk together in a sealable jar , make sure you have enough milk to cover the oats. When you are ready to add the rest of the ingredients , it’s that simple! You can add your toppings the night before I just don’t like everything to be too soggy.

First Trimester Recap
Not going to lie moms…. these first 13 weeks have not been the most fun! Baby number two is a lot different then Brody. I have not felt the best so far, mainly in the mornings but still not great all throughout the day. To make things worse I had a cold for more than four weeks ( still have it, thinking allergies ) with lots of coughing, sleepless nights and a stuffed up nose. I hope my first trimester recap helps me to connect with some new moms who are headed into the second trimester!!!
If you are wondering how my workouts have been? Well not good! If I don’t get it done first thing in the am then it didn’t get done. I had no motivation to workout even when I started I didn’t want to finish. I got in about 2-3 workouts a week maybe, that’s a big difference since I was working out 6 days a week.
If you think my workouts were bad you should have seen what I was eating. My poor nutrition definitely did not help me feel any better and it’s probably why I was lacking motivation to workout. The problem was I couldn’t even look at chicken or veggies, they all made me sick! All I wanted was carbs, cereal, and chocolate . Who else has been there? Fruits I was eating all day , I’m still snacking on mangos, watermelon and blood oranges .
Around 11 weeks I finally got my act together and started eating better. I started to take Allegra ( my dr + my NP sister in law 🙂 told me too) and it has made a HUGE difference in how I feel. I still have allergy symptoms but not half as bad as they were. I have never had allergies before so this is new to me! I went back to my normal way of eating and that’s when I finally started feeling better. Weeks 12-13 were very similar to week 11 . Eating pretty good and getting in more workouts and walks . I am drinking a protein shake but not everyday. I don’t love the company I am using and am on the hunt for a new one! With Brody I drank shakeology everyday but with this baby I couldn’t get it down for some reason! Once I find a fav I will share it. I plan to drink 2-4 shakes a week when needed.
I am so excited to keep sharing all about pregnancy number two and I would love to hear from some other moms who have had more than one kid!

7 Prenatal Fit Tips ( 1st Trimester )
Congratulations! You just found out you’re having a baby and I’m sure you are thinking “ can I still workout?” First make sure to check with your doctor, ever pregnancy is different and we all want to be safe. Today I am sharing with you what workouts I did during my 1st trimester while pregnant with Brody and now with baby number two plus 7 prenatal fit tips ( its trimester )
My doctor told me I was free to continue what I was doing before I got pregnant just to make sure I didn’t push myself so I was out of breath.
With Brody I did lots of walking , 30 minute workouts ( 21 DF & 21 DFE) and crossfit. I modified most of the jumping because my boobs hurt to jump 🙂
Now that I am pregnant with baby number two I am doing only workouts from home & walking ( plus chasing Brody around) . I am still doing some BB workouts like 80 Day Obsession and 21 DF but I am also adding in my own circuits that I share every Sunday.
7 Prenatal Fit Tips:
Find a sports bra and shoes that you love & are supportive
Walking counts as a workout! ( bring water with you )
Dress in layers so you don’t over heat. And make sure the room you workout in is not too hot
Drink LOTS of water especially if you are sweating while working out
Eat enough to support your workouts, have a protein packed meal after your workout. I don’t recommend doing a fasted workout.
Stand up slowly after doing moves on the ground , you might get dizzy
Always listen to your body and modify/stop when needed
Workouts I have been doing with baby number two:
Workouts from week 12
Four workouts from week 11
Three workouts from week 9
Turkey Avocado Nourish Bowl
I am obsessed with nourish bowls right now! They are basically a salad with a carb/grain, nuts & seeds and a healthy fat. Although this one does not have a carb/grain I do sometimes add rice or sweet potato.
This Turkey Avocado Nourish Bowl was perfect , especially if you love arugula like me!
1 large tomato, chopped
1 small red onion, sliced thin
Frozen turkey balls ( or make your own! )
1/2 cup corn * optional
Olive oil cooking spray
3 cups arugula (or baby spinach)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
lemon juice + olive oil
Chop tomato; slice onion ( I used less than half )
Cook your meat balls and your corn according to package
Cut avocados into chunks. Place all ingredients (except dressing) in a bowl. I added lemon juice and a TBS of oil to mine.
This made enough for me to have two servings plus some left over for tomorrow 🙂
Frozen raspberries with whipped cream.
New workouts to try!
I hope you LOVE my recipes & quick workouts . Id love to hear from you! Comment below which one you love best . Also make sure you follow me on instagram
Chocolate Almond Banana Bites
Perfect energy bites for picky eaters and moms on the go! These taste great and only take about 5 minute to make ! My son loves them and would eat them all at once if I let him! I added in peanut butter and cocoa powder but you can leave those out and just have banana almond bites. Next time I was thinking off adding some honey!
- one banana
- 1.5 cups of almond flour
- 1 tbs peanut butter * optional
- 1 tbs cocoa powder
blend or mix all ingredients . Refrigerate 10 min then roll into balls. If mixture is too sticky add some more almond flour till you can roll it into balls. Store in refrigerator for 2-3 days

Two Healthy Salad Recipes
I feel like this first salad is the perfect summer salad…. to bad its March and we just had a snow storm !
I not sure why but when I am pregnant I love a good salad and I normally am not a salad eater!! This first salad is perfect for those suffering from morning sickness , plus it helps with bloating because of the fiber ( and we all need more fiber in our diets )
I like to eat this first salad in the morning with a side of hard-boiled eggs. You need to eat a carb, protein & healthy fat with every meal so make sure you get a side of protein in!
The second salad is a spicy blend that is super easy to make and save . Since there are no greens in it it’s a great meal to make a head and save. The perfect meal prep mason jar salad.
- 1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
- 1-2 tbs lime juice
- 1 tbl olive oil
- 2 cups seedless watermelon
- 2 cups arugula
- 1/4 cup chopped mint
- 2-3 tbs sunflower seeds
- pasteurized ( if pregnant ) feta cheese
Add the first three ingredients + sunflower seeds to a mixing bowl and let sit 10-15 min. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss to coat . Enjoy!
Sick of greens? ( spinach, lettuce, kale) Try this southwest chicken salad instead! I found this recipe over on beachbody and have tweaked it a bit to fit what I like !( I’m a picky eater) I don’t eat beans ( I know they are packed with protein, I just don’t love them! ) so I add a bit more chicken and rice. I like to meal prep chicken to have on hand for the week and I always season a few with a spicy blend.
- 3 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- ½ tsp. lemon pepper
- 4 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 cups black beans
- 3 cups sliced orange bell peppers
- 3 cups sliced red bell peppers
- 1 cup thinly sliced red onion
- 2 cups chopped tomatoes
- 3 cups sliced grilled chicken breast
- ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/2 cup brown rice if you don’t use the beans.
First make the dressing by combining vinegar, lemon juice, and lemon pepper in a medium bowl; whisk to blend. Slowly add oil while whisking; mix well. ( if you love this dressing double up the recipe to save for later )
Add beans ( or rice ) , bell peppers, onion, tomatoes, chicken, cheese, and cilantro in a bowl. Serve immediately. Meal prep this salad by making it in a mason jar , cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days.
Id love to hear from you if you try these salads! Did you love them? Did you tweak them? Comment below. And make sure to follow me on instagram for some daily inspiration !
