9 Health Goals For 2018 That Have Nothing To Do With Restriction

Hi friends! I know it’s been a long time since I have been posting regularly but after my long hiatus I am BACK and ready to throw more nutrition nerdiness, recipes, and lifestyle tips your way! Here’s to hoping someone in addition to mama Biebs […]

I Don’t Dig Exercise

Yeah, that’s right. Dietitians are humans too. We like pizza (preferably paired with beer and football), ice cream, and Netflix just like the rest of you and some of us really don’t dig exercise. Yup, I said it. I don’t dig exercise. I absolutely hate […]

Savory Oats

The idea of starting my morning off with something sweet like a bowl of cereal, sweetened yogurt, or maple syrup coated oats is enough to make me gag. I’m more of a savory kinda gal when it comes to most food. I will choose veggies over fruit or mac and cheese over a cookie on any day of the week. I used to love having a post-run bowl of oats with an apple, cinnamon, and nuts but that was before I had to wake up at an absurd hour to schlep my way into the office. Note- by absurd I mean 6:30 am. I am not a morning person. Now that my morning runs are a thing of the past I am craving something with a bit less carbohydrate. Enter- Savory Oats.

This tasty dish will start your day off with some anti-oxidant containing veggies, fill you up with plenty of fiber, and give you the carbs, fats, and proteins your body needs to fuel your morning. Plus, you can make a double batch of the oat mixture to keep in the refrigerator. Now during your busy week all you need to do is pop the oats in the microwave and fry up a few eggs. Nutritious and filling breakfast in less than 10 minutes. Did I mention it tastes good? Yeah, that too.

You can adjust the amount of oats and the number of eggs you use based on your activity and hunger level. Active morning? Add extra oats and/or eggs. Not so much? Use less. Eating disorder? Follow the meal plan prescribed by your dietitian or doctor. You can also switch up the veggies in the recipe, I rotate based on whatever I have in the house. You can add Brussels sprouts, broccoli, peppers, onions, mushrooms, greens, whatever floats your boat. The world is your oyster, go makes some pearls.
