Ready for the week….

Well I am ready for my week.  In searching the web lately looking for healthier options for myself, I came across lots of yummy things.  For me it is not just about yummy and healthy, it’s about convenience. If I plan most of my meals for the week then it does guarantee that I will eat healthy.  And I know my weaknesses.  For example…I like something sweet with my coffee in the morning, about 930am while I am checking emails at work.  Also, like many people, if I don’t bring something good for lunch I will fill up with crap, like go into the lunchroom and have a Pizza pop!!! (that hasn’t happened yet..but it could).  So today was my day to try out some recipes that I found online.  I love to cook so spending a few hours in the kitchen is a pleasure and therapeutic.

Last night I put some overnight steel-cut oats on the stove so today I portioned them into jars for my week.  Every morning I will just add my fixins…nuts, coconut, brown sugar…lots of choices for overnight oats.  I also made some great Loaded Baked Omelette cups from  Skinnytaste.  Let me tell you, if you have not yet discovered Skinnytaste, you are missing out.  It’s got amazing recipes!

So then I was onto some recipes I was really looking forward to trying.  I am not a baker and also I am trying hard to limit my gluten, but I was trying to find alternatives to my “morning coffee sweet”. So I tried these two recipes and they are not only no bake but healthy, clean and tasty!! I love coconut so if you don’t these are not for you.  So first I made Quinoa Almond Joy Bars, note…mine do not look as good as SkinnyMS but they tasted great!!  Then I had dried apricots in my cupboard so I tried these Apricot Balls.  Both turned out very delish!!! Will definitely make both again!! So I am ready for my week and still researching more yummy recipes…..any suggestions?

  1. Oh wow, well done you! So much prep sorted. I totally get you on convenience, particularly if it’s been a long day and you’re starving. I hadn’t actually stopped over at Skinnytaste before so thanks for sharing the link! Looks like a great site. As for other inspiration, do you follow Green Kitchen Stories? It’s my favourite 🙂
