Healthy Through The Holidays

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Mama M & Keely have come up with a wonderful way for all of us to stay healthy during the holiday season.Each week we will have exercise goals and healthy eating tips. We will log our exercise hours and promise to eat healthy.

How'd your first week go? It went OK, always room for improvement.

Did you get your cardio in? yes I played on the trampoline every day with my children. That surly has to count.

Did you try any of Mama M's snacking tips? I really don't have issues with "snacking" । have one downfall and that's my love for Hot tamales. Other than that I "believe" I've done 'well"

Did you at least try the Pilates Hundred? Sadly I will answer this honestly I didn't. I will stay positive and give it a "try" this week

Are you taking this as serious as we are? Yes

What are your thoughts? My thoughts are "STAY AWAY" from the HOT TAMALES" but for some strange reason I crave "cinnamon" Pre gluten free days it was chocolate

Snack idea- Gluten free

Peanut Butter or Nut butter -Banana-Apple Bites

Serves 1

You Will Need

2 thin slices apple
2 teaspoons peanut butter or Nut butter
1⁄4 banana, sliced
1⁄8 teaspoon sugar we use Xylitol
1⁄8 teaspoon cinnamon
14 blueberries (optional)

What to Do

Place the apple slices on a flat surface and spread with the peanut butter. Top with the banana. Sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon and, if desired, the blueberries.

I love tamales. Thanks so much for posting this recipe! I have been cutting so much out of my diet for my son (still nursing and he has unknown allergies) and it gets quite boring to stay on track. This will be something good to try. I saw you visited my blog, thanks! :)
