3 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2″ pieces
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tbsp raw honey
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 cup uncooked quick oats
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1 cup fat free milk (I use Fat Free Fair Life Milk)
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly spray a 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the dish.
Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and salt; stir together.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, light brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas.
Pour the pumpkin mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the the top.
Bake the oatmeal for about 30 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm and ENJOY!!

So if you have been following my journey, the Shift Shop journey is in FULL force!! We are in week 2… my hubby and I and are following our challengers in our big exclusive test group! Being 20 weeks pregnant, I wanted to pick a program to follow from home that still challenged me, gave me cardio, weights, and an easy meal plan to follow, yet allowed modification for when necessary!! I know my body and definitely do not want to over do it and hurt myself or the baby!! So, this is what we choose!!
Being half way through week 2, we are kicking butt with these workouts!! They are a challenge for sure, but I think my past workout programs I did really got me in great shape to still be able to do this program without modification yet!! As my belly gets bigger, there will be some moves I may have to modify!! But overall, my husband and I both LOVE the program and what it gives us!
We have been waking up every morning at 6 am and getting in our workout and it feels so good and have that 25-35 minute workout out of the way and really gives us energy to get our day going!
Let’s talk nutrition for a minute… nutrition is NOT easy for me!! It is what I struggle with the most! I use to struggle with eating at night… I craved sweets. Now that I drink Shakeology, it has SIGNIFICANTLY helped those cravings and I am good! Where I struggle with is snacking during the day and if I am out… which we have been traveling a TON lately!
But, I want to keep this pregnancy healthy and stay as in shape as possible and not gain those 60 lbs I gained with my other 2, so this Shift Shop program really allows us to focus on simplified nutrition and easy prepping with our food!
Breakfast for champions! Eggs with our fresh veggies from our garden! See, healthy eating isn’t expensive!!
Here is our meal plan for Week 2! I am using Plan B 1500-1700 calories! And I may add an extra spoonful of natural peanut butter here and there lol… hey, I am just being honest!!!
Dinner tilapia with our fresh veggies from our garden turned into stir-fry! I used Bragg liquid aminos in the stir-fry cooked with EVOO! This is a must try!!
With our veggie stir-fry, we are mixing it up with whatever veggies we have from our garden!! So basically TONS of zucchini, tomatoes, and adding mushrooms, kale, and broccoli or green beans from the garden!

I love making oatmeal bake recipes because they are so easy and perfect for the family or even if you have some company!
So I actually made this for my husband’s army crew that came back from a training recently and it was a hit! My kids even loved it and I have to be honest, they get a little picky when it comes to oatmeal recipes because they love the oatmeal in a packet!
PEANUT BUTTER OATMEAL BAKE
1 ½ cups quick cooking oats
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp sea salt or Himalayan salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 overripe bananas, mashed
¼ cup creamy peanut butter (melted in microwave for 30 sec)
1 tsp vanilla extract
¼ cup pure maple syrup
1 large egg, lightly beaten
¾ cup unsweetened, vanilla almond milk or Fair life milk
¼ cup creamy natural peanut butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×9” square baking pan and set aside.
In a small bowl mix together the quick cooking oats, baking powder, salt and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
In a large bowl mix mashed banana and peanut butter together until combined.
Add in the vanilla extract, maple syrup and egg. Mix until combined.
Add the milk and stir..
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Pour the mixture into a lightly greased 9×9” baking pan.
Melt the extra peanut butter and drizzle on top. I use a knife to make swirls for extra decoration on top!
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Or until the top slightly springs back when touched and the edges are just barely brown!
Cool before digging in! ENJOY!!
This recipe is great to have re heated or even to eat cold!!

Who doesn’t love sales and getting fit for summer all in one!?! I am a HUGE bargain person, so I thought I shouldn’t keep this to myself!!!
I know so many people say “being healthy is expensive”…. well, so is being unhealthy my friends!! McDonalds, Arby’s, or any fast food, restaurant, or junk food gets expensive! The difference is, you either can spend your money and invest in your health now, or waste your money on junk and get further away from your goals and then pay for doctor visits, medical expensive, and medication down the road! You pick! I pick to replace the unhealthy spending on reaching my goals and being the best I can be for myself and as a role model for my fam!!
With that said, let’s talk SALES and SAVINGS for that HEALTHY lifestyle!! Beachbody is the company I joined 4.5 years ago that changed my life!! I was able to workout at home, not drag my babies to the gym, or even pay for a gym membership… or a trainer… I wanted to be able to workout in the comfort of my OWN home, get results, and feel good… and THAT is exactly what Beachbody gave me! Now, I am excited to share this with YOU, because I know I am not the only one who struggled with their weight, body image, self-esteem, and energy!
So here are this summer’s Beachbody sales!! Please keep in mind, this is ONLY while supplies last!!
Please, if you are not signed up with me as a customer with Beachbody yet, contact me and I will help you get started on your fitness journey and to save some$$$$ while your at it!!
