Fit Mommy - Lose the Baby Weight Recipe for Success

Good Morning Fit Mommies! =] I hope you guys had a great weekend. As soon as babies and kiddos enter your life it seems like life takes off at super speed and there's never enough time to get laundry done, get ready, pack the diaper bag AND eat! Here are a few of my favorite snacks for on-the-go that both you and the little ones will love. 

Mommy and Me Snacks: baked apple crisps, frozen Greek yogurt pops with agave nectar and Mommy's Trail Mix: whole-grain Cheerios, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds

PORTION CONRTOL - The Kid's Plate. Use a kid-sized plate to check your portion control. (Your meal should be 1/3 protein, 1/3 whole grain and 1/3 veggie.)

    Lose the Baby Weight Checklist

    Start your morning with protein and Omega 3s - you've all heard it before, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Don't skip breakfast - you're body will go into starvation mode and start saving the fat! Always get fueled up for the day ahead! 

    Three snacks a day - never let hunger build! - Veggies and Fruit are AWESOME snacks. 

    Maintain portion control for your dinner      

    Good luck! YOU CAN DO THIS!!

    Skinny Breakfast - Blueberry Pancakes

    My big pregnancy craving has been pancakes and waffles. =x But I don't feel as guilty munching on these. I love this pancake recipe! I cook them at night and stick them in the fridge for the next morning. There’s no way I’d have enough time to whip up some pancakes in the am. They aren’t quite like fresh pancakes when they’re microwaved the next day but it beats skipping breakfast!


    Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk 1/2 cup
    Salt 1 dash
    2 tiny scoops Stevia or 2 packets Truvia
    Blueberries 1/4 cup
    Cinnamon 1 dash


    Put egg whites, oats, baking powder, almond milk, salt and Splenda in the blender.
    Blend for 30 seconds on med-high speed.
    Spray a pan with non-stick cooking spray, pour batter on pan and add half the blueberries.
    Cook like a regular pancake.
    For topping, add applesauce and cinnamon.
