blueberry baked oatmeal

Day 1: Meal Plan

It’s been a long challenge, I’ve always liked ot relax on Sundays, but for the first time, I got it all done!! I created meals for the entire family for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and it’s done!!  Here’s the rundown for tomorrow:

Breakfast: Blueberry Oatmeal Bake - 6:30 A.M.
Lunch: Copycat Panera Fuji Apple Salad with grilled chicken and an Apple Balsamic Dressing with fresh watermelon for dessert
Dinner: Homemade foil packs with chicken, carrots, broccoli, mushrooms, and onions with reduced fat cheddar cheese. 

Exercise Plan: Walk up the steep hill by my house to gauge how much time it takes and 30 minute yoga session with sister. 


Having my cake and eating it tooEasy raw, No-bake Vegan Blueberry Yogurt Oatmeal Bars with Blueberry chia seed sauce

Following the deliciousness of yesterday’s blueberry banana chia seed smoothie, I was trying to think up some way I could eat just the smoothie for breakfast and still get my fill of carbs and protein as well as vitamins and minerals. And then, I chanced upon this: the perfect, super easy solution to making smoothies even better than they already are.

  1. Blend together cooked oatmeal (I cooked mine in soymilk for extra nutrients and also I just love oats cooked in milk), dates and walnuts for the base. It should form a sticky, chewy texture. Press it into the bottom of a non-stick square baking pan (don’t worry, no baking forthcoming though).
  2. The filling can be any kind of smoothie you like - I used my blueberry banana chia seed smoothie, and just poured it on top of the base. Now freeze this overnight.
  3. Everything should have set when you take it out again, and then you can top it with one layer of soy-yogurt or greek yogurt, and then add blueberry chia seed sauce or any sort of jam/sauce to swirl 
  4. Freeze again for another hour, and then you can enjoy!
