Banana Walnut Breakfast Bowl

Another Breakfast bowl?
Yes!!!  I think I'm hooked on eating oatmeal this way!  I've never really enjoyed oatmeal much but making it this way and topping it with fresh fruit and PEANUT BUTTER is amazing!  I really enjoy it!  
I made this Banana walnut oatmeal bowl and topped it with a peanut butter drizzle for my Monday morning breakfast! I prepped everything on sunday night so that it was ready to go in the morning and I almost forgot I was planning to make it until I saw the supplies sitting there in the morning!  Yay! 
I cooked the oatmeal plain this time (last time I added Chia seeds) with a dash of sea salt and then topped it with sliced bananas and walnut halves.  Instead of brown sugar or maple syrup I mixed peanut butter with a little maple syrup and warmed it in the microwave for 30 seconds to make a peanut butter sauce, this really made the bowl come together!  I drizzled the peanut butter mixture over the top of it all and dug in!  
This was such a warm and filling way to start the day.  

21 Day Fix Container Portions
1 yellow oatmeal
1 purple banana
1 blue walnut halves
2 spoons peanut butter
Very filling breakfast to start the day! 😋

Healthy Oatmeal Chia Breakfast Bowl

This Breakfast Bowl is a healthy alternative to your usual breakfast... a 
flavourful dish you're sure to love! It's filled with super foods that will 
keep you feeling satisfied and energized and can be topped with 
your personal favorites!

Sunday mornings are for cuddles is the Facebook post I put up 
this morning and it was true.  We all snuggled in bed this morning 
until about 9am and then of course we paid for it by needing to rush
 around later.  Gord was heading to his parents place to put the 
cover on our trailer for winter so I had to make the boys breakfast
 (they were pretty hungry by then).  I made them both scrambled 
eggs, and easy favourite for them.  But for myself I don't care for 
eggs too much so I decided to throw together an oatmeal breakfast
 bowl.  I gathered ingredients that I had in the kitchen and threw
 together a combination of Raspberries, banana, almonds and 
peanut butter!  I wasn't sure how it would all turn out but seriously
 it was so good!  

Healthy Oatmeal Chia Breakfast Bowl


1/4 cup Whole Oats
1 1/2 Tsp chia seeds
3/4 Cup Water
½ tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp honey
½ cup rinsed raspberries
1/2 banana, sliced
3 tbsp slivered almonds
2 tbsp melted homemade peanut butter 
(or other nut butter)
1 tbsp maple syrup

*Other optional toppings // sliced strawberries, blueberries,
 blackberries, kiwi, peaches, coconut shavings, goji berries,
 pomegranate seeds, pumpkin seeds, nut butters, cacao nibs,
 or homemade granola

1.    Add Oats, chia seeds and water into a small sauce pan.
  Cook on medium high until bubbling. 
2.    Add in honey and vanilla, stir and cook until oats are
 tender and mixture starts to thicken. 
3.    Rinse and slice fresh fruit.
4.    Combine peanut butter and maple in a saucepan or 
microwave-safe dish. Heat until warm and thin enough to
 drizzle.  Add more maple syrup if consistency is too thick. 
5.    Top with fruit, slivered almonds and a drizzle of 
the peanut butter/maple syrup mixture.
6.    Serve and enjoy immediately.

This breakfast bowl could be made as overnight 
oats if desired.

Crock Pot Turkey Burrito Bowls

I am testing out Crock Pot recipes for my 5 Day Crock Pot Meal Plan Group that starts on Monday November 30th! 

I've been searching clean eating Crock Pot recipes and making my meal plan for the group!  I can't wait to get the group started!!  
5 nights of crock pot dinners and the rest of your meals planned too! Plus I give you the grocery list and The support of a group doing the same plan all week long! 

If you want to join in, click here and say going to the event! Then make sure I'm your friend on Facebook so I can add you into the private group! 

Tonight we tried Crock Pot Burrito Bowls.  I used turkey instead of chicken as that's what I had on hand.  This recipe was a hit tonight! Asher loved topping his bowl with Greek yogurt and tomatoes. I find that if kids can be involved in the meal making even if it's just in one small way like allowing him to add his own toppings, they seem to eat more and complain less. Bonus!

A word of caution: this makes LOTS of leftovers!!!

We ate this for dinner two nights in a row and still have leftovers!  Given Fraser didn't eat it as he hasn't been well and not eating his usual amount and Asher's helping isn't really a full serving but I'd say this makes 7-8 servings easily.  I am planning to make Turkey Burrito Lettuce wraps tomorrow night with it as long as everyone is willing to eat it another night!   

Crock Pot Turkey Burrito Bowls 

21 Day Fix Portions Estimate: 1.5 Cups of Burrito mixture = 1 Yellow 1/2 Red 1/2 Blue 

Toppings add additional containers: Greek Yogurt (Measure 1/2 Red Container) Tomatoes, green onions (Green), Avocado or Guacamole (Blue)


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken or Turkey breasts about 2 large breasts
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 cups of low-sodium or homemade chicken broth
1 15 oz can of diced tomatoes, drained or 1 cup salsa
1 14 oz can of black beans, drained and rinsed
2 3/4 cups of whole grain brown rice
1 1/2 cups of shredded white cheddar cheese


Place chicken breasts in slow cooker.

Sprinkle taco seasoning over top chicken and drizzle with olive oil. 

Pour chicken broth over chicken breasts and stir in canned tomatoes or salsa. 

Cook on low for about 4 hours, or high for 2 hours until chicken reaches 165 degrees. 

Remove chicken breasts from slow cooker and cut into bite sized pieces. 

Turn slow cooker to high and stir in brown rice and black beans. 

Let cook 30-45 minutes on high, or until rice is tender.

Add chicken back in, top with cheese and let cook a few minutes longer until cheese is melted.

Serve with fresh diced tomatoes, plain Greek yogurt or sour cream, green onions, avocados or guacamole.


Crock Pot 5 Day Clean Eating Meal Plan

This is going to be fun and such a easy week for you busy mamas to have dinner ready without having to do too much work. I don’t know about you, but this time of year is filled with swimming lessons, Taekwondo, holiday shopping, after-school activities, errand running, etc. Finding the time to fit in a healthy dinner seems almost impossible!
