Green Tea Coffee?

For a few years now I have been hearing and reading the benefits of green tea – especially how it helps with the burning of belly fat (which I need help with). I have tried it a few times but just can’t get over the feeling of being a… horse? Yes I went there, and as I’m sure you’ve heard before, it tastes like grass or hay to me. I just can’t like it no matter how much I want to!

I am of the mind I only want to eat what I love or what brings me joy. In this instance I love coffee, not tea, and especially not Green Tea. Well a couple months ago my husband was listening to the radio and John Tesh mentioned he drinks Green Tea in his coffee… can anyone say eww!? Exactly what my thought was…

Fast forward a few months and what do you think I’m going to share with you? If you don’t like green tea but you love coffee drink them together! Yes it tastes a little different but not enough to┬ákeep me from burning some belly fat.

All you need is a cup of coffee and a green tea bag, let steep for 30 seconds. Add a little Half & Half and a sprinkle of cinnamon (which also is supposedly really good for you). Now you know my new morning routine. Maybe you will feel so inclined to try it out…

Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal

Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal

Who wants to eat a healthy breakfast and still find “joy” in it? I do!

This filling bowl of oatmeal is naturally sweetened with a topping of fresh strawberries and Half & Half… SAY WHAT? That’s right folks… Half & Half. It doesn’t get better than this.

Make a bowl of oatmeal (I make a 1/2 cup oats to 1 cup water), or plain instant if you are in a rush. Top with 4 freshly sliced strawberries and drizzle with 1/4 cup Half & Half – hence the name Strawberries and CREAM Oatmeal. This filling and healthy breakfast is only about 250 calories and it’s low in sugar. Even my 2 year old tells me, “mom, I neeeeed oatmeal!”
