Holiday Baked Oatmeal

??This is a make-ahead healthy breakfast recipe that is PERFECT for the holidays … or anytime!
?It’s actually much simpler to assemble than it looks. Just bake it, divide it into portions when it’s cool (trust me on this, because you’ll be tempted to eat more!) and keep it in the fridge.
?It also makes a great not-too-sweet snack.
One of the things I especially like about this recipe is that you can use frozen berries, which can help cut back on the cost!
Enjoy this baked oatmeal as-is, or top with Greek yogurt.

Equipment

  • oven
  • 9-inch (23-centimeter) square baking dish
  • medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • smaller mixing bowl
  • spoon or fork

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups rolled oats (180 g)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt or ground Himalayan salt
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder optional
  • cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (375 ml)
  • cup maple syrup (85 ml)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil melted, or grass-fed butter
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 ripe bananas peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup berries (150 g) fresh or frozen

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF (190ºC). Grease a 9-inch (23-centimeter) square baking dish with either butter or coconut oil.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine oats, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, salt and optional protein powder. Whisk to combine.
  • In a smaller mixing bowl, combine milk, maple syrup, eggs, butter or coconut oil, and vanilla. Whisk until blended. (Note: if you're using coconut oil, sometimes it solidifies when it comes into contact with colder ingredients. If that happens, stick the bowl in the microwave and heat it up in 30-second increments until the coconut oil melts.)
  • Place the berries and banana on the bottom of the baking dish, gently mixing them. Cover the fruit with the dry oat mixture, then drizzle the wet ingredients over the oats. Make sure it soaks down through the oats and evenly. Gently press down the oats on top, using a spoon or fork.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before cutting into 8 portions! DELICIOUS!

Are You Tracking The Important Stuff For Weight Loss?

Are You Tracking The Important Stuff For Weight Loss?

The number on the scale is not the be-all and end-all measure of weight loss success.

I see all the time, “Muscle weighs more than fat”, and then I see 70 people jump on the person that said that about how a pound is a pound.  LOL

Guess what?

1 pound of muscle takes up about ¼ of the space as 1 pound of fat.

Sooo if you are gaining muscle, but losing fat, the scale may not move, but your measurements are going to change.

Today’s podcast covers this as well as some tips to keep in mind as you’re losing weight and ready to throw the flipping scale out the window because it’s not moving fast enough.

Listen in to learn more.

Let’s talk healthy!

About Coach Michelle

I’m coach Michelle and I am a unique weight loss coach in that for 42 years, I was on the weight loss rollercoaster. Over 30 years I lost a hundred pounds, three times.

The doctor put me on my very first diet at the age of nine, and it was a 900 calorie diet. Let’s just say, I never want to go back there.  But it wasn’t until I was 42 that I actually figured out how to lose the weight and keep it off.  At 42 I lost weight in 18 months and I’ve maintained it for seven years.

If you do the math, that means I am 50 years old and I am still maintaining said 120-pound weight loss that took me about 18 months to achieve, and I achieved that weight loss after 40.

I am here to help you reach your weight loss goal and stay there!

Don’t listen when they say you can’t lose weight after you reach 40,

Essential Oils to Relieve Stress With Dagmar Bauer-Prigatano

Essential Oils to Relieve Stress With Dagmar Bauer-Prigatano

This Podcast

In today’s Podcast our guest Dagmar Bouer-Prigatano helps us understand how essential oil can naturally lower our stress levels and reduce the undesirable effects of too much cortisol running through our system.

When we think of hormones, we don’t always consider that when our bodies perceive a threat, it floods us with hormones to respond to that threat. A little cortisol is a good thing. Too much and it stops weight loss.

So join us as we talk about using essential oils to manage the stress, and get back on track with your weight loss.

Does Fat Make You Fat?

Does Fat Make You Fat?

This Podcast

In this podcast, I go myth-busting.

Fat does not make you fat, but fat does fuel your hormone balance, and it does help you balance your blood sugar so that you feel full longer, and you’re able to lose weight.

The whole premise behind keto is high fat and high protein. I don’t go there because I have seen people eating unhealthy fats and processed protein in order to achieve the numbers that they get while trying to keep their carbs low.

Want to know how fat helps balance hormones, keep blood sugar steady, and keeps you full longer?

This is the podcast for you!
