Today is so exciting! The summer slimdown 2018 food challenge starts and I’m already off to a great start thanks to food prepping in advance.
This morning consisted of drinking 16oz water and taking vitamin C and probiotic. Then I made my usual CCN mango mint lime smoothie (from 2 food challenges ago) and had my morning cup of coffee, sans sugar and dairy.
The picture above is my morning snack. easy.
- 4 cups chopped rhubarb
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 2 cups cherries (I used strawberries)
- Preheat oven to 350
- Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil
- Add your ingredients to the pan and mix around to combine
- Bake for 20 minutes until all is soft
- Store in Tupperware in fridge until use
So for the overnight oats, I just used a Mason jar, 1/2 cup Quaker oats (nut free) and added 1/2 cup coconut milk with 1/2 cup rhubarb compote. Delish. Sweet. Filling. So good! And I’m good until lunch.
I’ love a good food challenge, I love being part of something bigger, I love learning about new recipes and the chemistry that happens with our bodies in the way in which we are eating. I love learning and CCN is a great teacher. Mostly, I love being connected to all of these amazing people trying to live a healthy (mind and body) lifestyle. amazing!!!
Have a great Monday!!!😍
