Figure Friendly Fall Favorite Recipes


School is in session. Fall is here, though where I live it does not feel like it (it was 109 degrees the other day, really).

One thing you should know about me is that I have an addiction. It comes out every fall. To what? PUMPKIN!!!

I love all things pumpkin. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pancakes. Pumpkin tea. Pumpkin cheesecake. Pumpkin muffins. In fact, the other day I invited a friend’s daughter to come over and we made cupcakes that tasted like a Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte! What a glorious day that was!

Since this is one of my favorite times of the year I thought I’d give you all a taste of some of my all time fall favorite blog posts from Fit Moms Fit Kids Club.

These are all recipes, because what’s better than yummy healthy comfort food?

Nothing!

 

Here are some of my favorite posts from autumns past.

 

 

I hope you try some of these! Let me know if you do.

Comment below which recipe(s) you want to try!

Healthy Kid Approved Baked Oatmeal Recipe


Fit Meals With Annett Logo

I have a new favorite breakfast dish.

Baked Oatmeal!

I kept hearing about it and finally decided to give it a try.

It reminds me of eating fresh baked oatmeal cookies.  I eat mine with a tall glass of milk.

Yummy.  Milk and cookies. Healthy baked oatmeal and milk.

Here’s my new recipe.  Give it a try.

Healthy Kid Approved Baked Oatmeal

baked oatmean

3 cups uncooked oats

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup low fat milk (you can probably substitute soy or other alternatives)

1 tablespoon canola oil or melted butter

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

4 egg whites (or 2 whole eggs)

¾ cup of fruit (blueberries, strawberries, peaches, apples your choice)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a large bowl stir together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.  Mix in vanilla, milk, oil or butter, applesauce, and eggs.  Stir until well combined.  Pour your fruit of choice onto the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish.  Spread oatmeal mixture over the fruit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes.

I used fresh blueberries in this photo

Enjoy!

As you see, we did. :)

Fit Meals Monday


Annett Davis, Olympian, Founder of Fit Moms Fit Kids

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great week last week.  We had a fantastic week!  I got back out on the beach trying to get in shape for my 2011 pro beach volleyball season.  It’s always extremely humbling to get back in the sand.  I always feel like I’m jumping 2 inches high and running as slow as a snail.  But, I always remind myself it’s only going to get easier.  I’ll be faster, stronger, and jumping high again in no time.  Well, I hope. LOL.   I forgot for a minute that I’m now 37, and in my 13th season playing professionally.  Whew, that’s a long time!  I never imagined I’d be playing this long.  But, we are still one of the top teams and doing great!

Besides training we had a great time homeschooling this week.  My son got to go on a 6 hour educational hike and team building workshop.  He had a blast!  We also visited the Quality West Wing.  The kids learned about our government.  They have an almost to scale replica of the Oval Office.  My son learned so much and had a ton of fun doing a half hour scavenger hunt trying to answer questions about Presidents, the Constitution, etc…   He also got to spend time pretending he was the President of the United States.  The icing on the cake was that on Saturday it snowed a tiny bit again at my Southern California home (and I don’t live in the mountains). This is only the second time in my lifetime that it’s snowed where I live, and both times happened this year!  Amazing.

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but this week we are doing something new!  I took off my regular Fit Meals Monday meal plan blog hop because of low participation :( and decided to join Menu Plan Monday at Org Junkie.  She has a lot of great info to help you organize your home.  For those of you who came looking for my normal hop, please go to Org Junkie and feel free to join the hop there. Over 300 women post their menu plans there.

Here’s My Meal Plan For The Week!

I’m shopping from my pantry and freezer this week!  Trying to be frugal! I’ll shop mostly for fresh veggies and fruit.  Hoping to keep my grocery bill to $50 or less!  I’ll let you know if I make it under budget.  FYI all of the meals have links to the recipes I’ll be using (well sort of, I always modify).

Meatless Monday- Red Beans and Rice

Taco Tuesday- Healthy Fish Tacos served with cabbage, tomatoes, avocado slices, and cilantro cream sauce.  Baked Mexican  brown rice on the side.

Wednesday- Hoppin Johns (an African American dish usually served on New Years Day, thought to bring good luck) served with Sauteed Collard Greens (usually African Americans like to cook their greens to death, literally cooking most of the goodness out of them.  I started sauteing mine last year.  My kids actually like them better!)

Thursday- Chipotle!  We will use the Facebook buy one get one free offer that I told you about last week to buy their organic chicken bowls.  We order our bowls with chicken, very little rice, black and pinto beans, fajita veggies, corn salsa, pico de gallo, and a very little cheese.  We split our bowls between the 4 of us.  This week with the coupon it will only cost us $5.85 (plus tax)!!!

Fish FridayShrimp Lettuce Wraps (Ok well not fish, but they do live in the water, does that count?)  If you press the link you can show your kids the kids cooking show that shows how to make these.  My 9 year old son, and 5 year old daughter joined 9 & 7 year old kid chefs to make this delicious meal!!!

Simple Saturday- Baked “Grilled” Cheese Apple sandwiches (weight watchers recipe) served with Homemade Healthy Creamy Tomato Soup FYI “a study published in the British Journal of Nutrition revealed that a high dietary intake of tomato products reduced total and LDL cholesterol levels.”

Sunday- Healthy Homemade Turkey Chili with Green Salad
