Three Tip Thursday

I want to start a weekly feature on Cycle for Cake called Three Tip Thursday. How creative, I know. These tips will be related to wellness and the first one will be food focused.

Three small changes to make your eating a little healthier:

  1. Add cinnamon to things like oats, apple sauce and cereal to give it more flavor. I did this just the other day, I bought natural unsweetened apple sauce and covered it in cinnamon, so tasty!
  2. Add kale or spinach to your morning or post workout smoothie. If you have been around the blog world for a little while, you may have heard these referred to as green monsters, I think Angela was the first blogger I ever saw do this. Adding the spinach or kale increases the nutrition factor in your smoothie, plus you get to add up your 9 servings of fruits and veggies even quicker.
  3. Bake your eggs for the week. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and a good snack but sometimes hard boiling them can be a task. You have to take the time to boil the water the keep your eye on them. Plus I always forget how long to boil and when to put them into the water…blah, blah, blah. So, I have started baking them in the oven! It is so simple, just put a dozen eggs in a muffin tin, turn the oven onto 325 and cook for about 20-30 minutes. You should start to see some spotting, that is when they are ready. Once they are out of the oven, place them in a bowl of ice water for about 10 minutes. There you have it, eggs ready to go for the week!
