Apricot Pecan Oatmeal Muffins

Dr. OZ had the the cutest guest Marjorie Johnson on his show today. She gave her recipe for her awesome Apricot pecan oatmeal muffins. A must try for a yummy healthy snack.Ingredients

Makes 12 muffins
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour to make them healthier I would ditch the all purpose flower and add Prairie Gold 100% Wheat flour. It can be bought at most stores.
1 tsp baking power
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup canola oil. You can also swap out the oil for applesauce for a healthier treat.
1 egg
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

DirectionsPlace oats and buttermilk in a bowl. Stir to combine. Cover and let stand for 20-30 minutes. In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in apricots and pecans. Add oil, egg and brown sugar to the oatmeal mixture and combine well. Pour the oatmeal mixture into the flour mixture. Stir just to moisten the dry ingredients. It will look lumpy. Divide batter into 12 greased muffin cups.

You really need to know what diabetes is, know how damaging it can be and take matters to act now, not later.

Type 2 diabetes is reaching epidemic proportions in the US, with the rest of the developed world following close behind. Type 2 diabetes was once known as
“adult-onset” diabetes, overweight teens in the US are being diagnosed in ever-increasing numbers. With kids as young as age 12.

Losing weight is a JOB! As seen on the Dr. OZ show!

JOB for Losing Weight:
J – Journal the Food You Eat (this will keep you accountable for the food you eat)
O – Obstacles will Occur Every Day (Don’t give in- look for solutions)
B – Be Patient and Kind to Yourself, (It took time to put this weight on and takes time to get it off.

I have a great plan that will really help all who struggle with emotional eating.
Journal your emotions instead of eating them. Work hard on digging deep and finding out why your turn to food for comfort.
Eating Plan of action:
1. Make your morning all about fiber with my Spinach Raspberry flaxseed oil shake. My recipe!
2. Afternoon snack: Spoonful of peanut butter. It will kill the sweet tooth and helps with dry skin.
