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:
- 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!
- 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.
- 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!
