Superfood Packed Overnight Oats :
I love over night oats! I make mine the night before or I meal prep a few at a time . I love to eat my oats cold but you can def heat them up if you prefer.
- 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.

7 Prenatal Fit Tips
Pulled Pork Insta Pot Recipe
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
Insta Pot Pulled Pork
My first real meal made with my new insta pot was a SUCCESS! I found this pulled pork recipe here and we made sandwiches for dinner. Brody even liked it ( although it ended up being too spicy for him because of the sauce I used! )
I did change this recipe a bit. I bought all my ingredients from Trader Joes. What I love most is this did not take all day to make . When it was all done the total time was about two hours.
My ingredients :
- pork loin
- 1 cup bbq sauce – Sriracha & roasted garlic bbq sauce
- 1 cup chicken stock
- coleslaw – packaged tahini, pepita & apricot slaw kit
- rolls – sweet pull apart Aloha rolls
Here are the cooking instructions
Summer Recipe + Dinner For A One Year Old
I have summer & grilling on my mind! If you are anything like me and love mangos then you will love this kabob recipe. I have been totally obsessed with mangos recently and have been searching recipes to try. I found this one at beachbody.com and I didn’t really change a thing ( normally I change recipes ) We paired this with brown rice and Brody ( who is one ) love it!
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 1 Tbsp . olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic , finely chopped
- 2 tsp . chili powder
- ½ tsp . sea salt – I use pink Himalayan
- ¼ tsp . cayenne pepper
- 1 lb . raw chicken breast , boneless, skinless, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 tsp . raw honey
- 2 medium mangos , peeled, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 medium yellow bell pepper , cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 medium orange bell pepper , cut into 1-inch cubes
- 2 medium red onions (or sweet onion), cut into 1-inch cubes
Most nights Brody eats something very similar to us . On the nights we have soup I make him something different only because he hasn’t quite figured out how to use a spoon.
I don’t buy him food that I wouldn’t eat , like lots of those kid specific chicken nuggets and gross microwave pizzas!!! ( I mean ellios taste so good but I don’t buy it!!!) I do buy the frozen chicken fingers from Trader Joes ( we love those! ) and frozen sweat potato fries. I believe TJ has some dino nuggets that aren’t terrible we just haven’t tried them yet!
Shaws sells these broccoli / cheese tots that Brody loves . He would eat the whole bag if he could. I try to give him veggies every night, he gets a lot of our left overs. Anything roasted he loves . He ate all of this and then threw his plate at me!
Make sure you follow me on instagram , I share mine and Brodys food daily!
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 !
