Jill’s Spinach Raspberry Flaxseed Detox Shake~ As seen on Dr. OZ

Some people have told me this shake acts like a detox to them.  Many have lost lot’s of weight using this shake in the morning.  I really feel it’s the fiber in the shake that many of us lack.  I thought I would post it because I had a few comments on the past shake post that asked if this was what they showed on his show.  I did not watch today’s show but this shake is a wonderful way to stay healthy… Enjoy!

Jill’s Spinach Raspberry Flaxseed Oil Shake~As seen on Dr. OZ


Serves 4

2 cups fresh or frozen Raspberry’s
1 container of strawberry low fat yogurt.
1/4 cup orange juice
1 handful of fresh spinach. You and your kids wont even taste the spinach. It’s the only way I can get my 5 yr old to get his veggies.
8 baby carrots
2 scoops of vanilla or strawberry protein powder of your choice.
2 teaspoons of flaxseed oil.  Such a healthy twist. You wont even taste it. There is also a beauty tip using flaxseed oil. It is great for making beautiful hair, skin and nails.
1/4 cup of dry oatmeal
2 teaspoon of wheat germ

Combine all ingredients in blender with a small amount of ice until smooth and serve. :-)

Apricot Pecan Oatmeal Muffins

I got a few e-mails about wanting a healthy yet sweet snack so I thought I would re-post this recipe.  Yummy but healthy!!

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
1/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

Directions Place 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.
