Healthy, Simple Snack for Apple Season with Mighty Nut Powdered Peanut Butter

So, for many of you Fall is all about Pumpkin, but there are those of us out there who feel differently. I know, who on earth would know from looking at Facebook or Instagram? Pumpkin is everywhere! People are obsessed!

I definitely enjoy pumpkin, but I also feel like Fall is equally about the apples. Apple picking, visiting an orchard, the easiest on-the-go snack, apple pie – I could go on and on… and I almost did.

We love apples because they are the original 100 calorie snack pack. Why do we buy that crap when an apple can be thrown easily in any bag and eaten on the go anytime?

My kiddos love apples and we knew just what to do with our Might Nut Powdered Peanut Butter when it came in the mail to review as a part of the Sweat Pink community. This is so simple, but we tried to take it just a little bit beyond being boring. You just can’t mess with a classic!

Healthy & Thrifty Sweet Potato, Cauliflower & Turkey Meatballs {Recipe}

Delicious, sweet and full of as much veggies as turkey, these meatballs are amazing and I can’t get enough!

I can cook the heck out of all different veggies and our family loves them, but coming up with ideas for our protein is always a struggle for me. When it comes to the main course, I blank. My goal is to find more ideas and more healthy and frugal ways to stretch our protein whenever I can.

I love these meatballs! Plenty of meat, but still packed with veggies and tons of flavor! You could serve them traditional spaghetti and meatballs, eat them plain, or even make them into patties – just a word of warning, they end up a bit softer because of all the veggies and when we tried grilling like a burger it was not an easy task.

Peanut Butter Banana Overnight Oats

I was a little slow to jump on the overnight oats train, but I am so happy I finally did!!

If you follow me on twitter and Instagram, I rave about them all the time!  I think I’ve shared the recipe about ten times by now.  Why it took me so long to share it here, I have no idea…

There are a million different ways to make your own overnight oats, but this is the recipe I used the first time I tried them and it has been love ever since.  I’ve never been an oatmeal fan, but this is like a dessert for breakfast and the consistence is a bit thinner which is why I love it so much.  The sweetness of the banana and peanut butter, with the touch of cinnamon – delicious!

Here it is, my all-time favorite Overnight Oats Recipe!

Ham Asparagus & Egg White Cups: great make-ahead on-the-go breakfast

I’m sharing a tasty recipe that I won’t be eating today because it’s Ash Wednesday, but these Ham Asparagus & Egg White Cups are delicious! They’re also a great way to make a breakfast ahead of time, keep in the fridge or freeze, and have something on hand to grab when you’re short on time in the morning.

This is a way better option than grabbing a protein bar on the go, or *gasp* skipping all together!
