A healthier alternative to an apple crumble: Baked Oatmeal with Apples and Berries

My refusal to put butter, sugar or milk into my breakfasts lead me to go solo in trying out this dish, and what I discovered was that just as with most things, it was a dish perfect without butter, sugar or milk. The fruits were oozing their juices and it was warm, wholesome and naturally sweet. As simple as making oatmeal but way jazzier and more delicious:
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees farenheit
Soften your apples a little by cooking it with water in a pan (or just put them in a microwave). I used about half an apple.
Add berries to your softened apples, and put them at the bottom of your baking bowl
Add oatmeal and twice as much water as your oatmeal, and pour that on top
Bake at 200 degrees for around 20 minutes, taking it out when the top is dry. Bon appetit!

Here it is, the final installment of my 20 minute at home cardio & strength workouts! This one targets your lower body but will also engage your core a lot for balance, stability, and controlled movements. Especially in the squats and lunges, I highly encourage you to take your time, focus on form, and actively engage your muscles to really get the most out of what you do!
This is the perfect workout to take on the go, do from your home or dorm room, or, best of all, take outside! It’s beautiful out there so soak up some sun while you’re working out!
For tons more at home, equipment free workout ideas go here! :)

Just rocked it at the gym.

Starting the C25K again, cardiovascularly I’m about half way through but I need to reteach myself how to run or I’ll just ruin my feet again.

Knocked my tricep dip to 29kg
My inverted pull to 29kg
Leg press to 70kg
Leg extension is still at 11kg, but I’m feeling more stability, so hopefully I’ll make some progress there soon.
Still looking for some arm machines that don’t make my implant click against my muscle. The feeling makes me feel ill.
I should probably just learn how to use dumbells.

Also, two meals down and have followed the plan so far. 

Going to have my dinner straight after work and the rice milk as soon as I get home and try to leave it at that.

I have miso soup if all else fails.

Looking forward to making broccoli pesto tomorrow.

Yesterday I actually stuck to my diet completely. 

Breakfast: Plum

Lunch: Sweet potato mash with morrocan lentil soup

Dinner: Whole wheat pasta with cherry tomatoes, spinach, mushroom kalamata olives and red onion cooked with macadamia oil.

Snack: A glass of rice milk.

My plate says I managed about 1300 calories.

I did about 45 minutes of body weight exercises, I procrastinated too long and couldn’t fit the gym in before work so did a body weight workout afterwards. I’ll chalk that up as a semi-win though I missed cardio.



My plans today are:


Breakfast: 2x vegan soft shell corn tacos with pinto beans, guac, rice, tomato, red onion, cos lettuce, coriander and verde sauce.

Lunch: 2x four seed grain bread, 1 avocado, half a cup of spinach and a tomato with pepper. 

Dinner: Moroccan lentil soup with broccoli. 

Snack: 20g 85% chocolate, a glass of rice milk.


This should come out to about 1400 calories, so I definitely need to go to the gym.

I meant to have the toast for breakfast, soup for lunch and tacos for dinner but I couldn’t resist the taco’s when I drove past.

Just waiting for my belly to settle down before I go to the gym.
