I'm laughing as I type this because the blog below is about me being a fatty Mcfat fat and here I am posting a cookie recipe and eating one while I work. Awesome. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw this picture, and let me tell you that they taste WAY better than they look!

I was at Trader Joes this morning and came across a bag of rolled oats.



 I'm always looking for new breakfast ideas & loved this because they are gluten free, a great source of fiber and sodium free! As I was checking out the gal said, "Ohhh, are you making the cookies?" COOKIES?? I said. She raved about the recipe on the back & you know me & COOKIES!
 I drove home and made a batch before I even made lunch. 
Shame on that lady for telling me about the recipe. I'm addicted.

 


Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

1/4 c. butter
1 and 1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 c. sugar
3 cups of rolled oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
6 oz chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter and beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Place teaspoon full of dough on parchment paper. Bake 8-10 minutes. Just until they are lightly brown around the edges.

Side note: I threw all the ingredients in at once in my Kitchen Aid and they were just as awesome.

Yay for not feeling as guilty in indulging in chocolate chip cookies!

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…
