May is here! with a healthy recipe

Happy first of the month to all my readers! What a great way to start the month then by working out! Went to the gym for 2 hours and had a nice session on the treadmill and elliptical, which happen to be my favorite machines. 


School is officially out for the summer in just 1 week! Well, I have one more regular/review class day this week, then on Tuesday I have my only 2 finals. I will then look into finding a job or a paying internship (these are rare). Life of an undergrad.


I love a blog called Gina’s Skinny Recipes and came across a recipe that resembles my grandmother’s on the go oatmeal shake recipe! I tried it yesterday and is basically tastes the same as my grandmothers.


Here is the recipe:


Avena - Healthy Oatmeal Shake


Servings: 4 • Size: 1 cup • Calories: 123.9 • Fat: 1.8 g • Protein: 6.8 g • Carb: 21.3 g • Fiber: 3.2 g


  • 1/2 cup quick oats

  • 2 cups water

  • 1 cup fat free milk

  • 1 cup ice

  • 3 tbsp sugar

  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon

Cook oats and water in a small pot for about a minute or two, stirring often until it becomes thick and bubbly. Remove from heat and let it cool a few minutes.


In a blender add milk, sugar, cinnamon. Add oats and ice. Blend on high until very smooth. Chill in refrigerator or pour in a glass over ice. Enjoy!! Makes 4 cups.
