My goal for my blog is to make the gluten free healthy lifestyle easily attainable. I want to share my recipes and tips with you all so that you will not only be physically fit and happy with yourself but internally and emotionally as well. I truly believe (and I can back this from experience) that a healthy lifestyle makes you feel all around happier and more energized. This idea applies to almost everything in life- if you put in a great effort you will get great results and same goes for your body. If you nourish your body with healthy, nutritious and whole foods you will attain the ultimate result- good health and happiness.
On that note, I would like to share with you a recipe for a quick, easy, high fiber, high protein & dairy free breakfast cookie that is great for on the go or even just a simple snack. The ingredients are really just your typical morning oatmeal baked up into a yummy cookie so; go ahead and even eat the entire batch!
Overnight Oats is simply “no-cook” oatmeal and with its make ahead convenience it is perfect for a protein, fiber and nutrient filled breakfast that will keep you full and focused until lunch. It also is low in fat & sugar, which makes it a perfect replacement for those calorie, fat and sugar packed granola bars or coffee shop pastries. This recipe also includes Chia Seeds, which are an unbelievable super food. Per ounce, these bad boys contain 11 grams of fiber, more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and flax seeds, contain more protein than a serving of quinoa and are loaded with calcium and vital anti-oxidants.
Spur of the moment last night my friends decided they were hungry for something sweet. Instead of their regular trip to the corner bodega I asked for 15 minutes to make them something really delicious yet healthy and if they didn’t like it I’d be the one to go out and get them food. This recipe is loaded with protein and fiber and took all of about 12 minutes to make and consisted of ingredients I had lying around my kitchen. They ended up loving it. Basically what I’m trying to say is there is no excuse to eat junk when you can whip up something healthy, satisfying and soo delicious in less than half the time it would take to run to the store and buy food that will make you feel sluggish and regretful in the morning.
