Need more energy?

Well that’s a silly question, right? Here’s an easy answer for us to not only get more energy but also to sustain energy throughout our day.

(See recipe at the end of this post)

As you heard in my video, which BTW is obviously one of my older ones, breakfast is the most important meal of the day because of the many reasons I listed in the video. And to me personally, I need healthy protein throughout my day, or I not only lose my energy, I am not a nice person to be around!

Therefore, I have healthy protein for breakfast, mid-morning, lunch, mid-afternoon, and dinner. Whoa, I can just hear you all now thinking all kinds of thoughts like: I’d be gaining tons of weight; or I am not hungry at those times; or please Mitzi, get real already. …Read More

Well, I am here to gently tell you all that if we are not doing at least some intervals of eating  healthy protein, research and experts tell us physical consequences will eventually appear to negatively affect our health status. Stay tuned if you want to know which healthy proteins I count on to keep me moving and grooving without adding those dreaded pounds

Also, many get tripped up by misleading advertising and labeling. Here is an example of oats that do have reduced sugar, but comparing this ingredient list with the Bob’s Red Mill ingredient list, shows us not all oatmeal is created equal.

Ingredients: whole grain oats

Living a life of WELLNESS is one baby step at a time. Always remember that you are too valuable to all those who love you and need you to not take better care of yourself.

And you know what else,  I love you lots too! 




Cook steel cut oats according to package directions (I do the 1 cup oats to 3 cups water to have breakfast cooked for the days ahead. It will keep a few days in refrigerator)

When oatmeal is done cooking, optional is to  add:

1/2 – 1 tsp Splenda packaged w/brown sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

Before serving I added ground flax, blueberries, and walnuts

Any combo of options works as diced apples, sliced bananas, etc. I usually avoid most dried fruits because of the high sugar content so read labels carefully.

A 1/4 c serving of steel cut oatmeal with 1/4 cup walnuts is 14 grams of protein…that is awesome for starting our day!

Living and loving life together,
