Triple Berry Crisp

This recipe was created using the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® Deliciously Simple™ spread.  This new spread has no artificial preservatives, no hydrogenated oils and no cholesterol per serving.  It's made with simple ingredients, such as canola oil, yogurt and salt.  It works beautifully in this recipe with it's creamy, buttery taste and texture.  You can find out more information about this product at  My family absolutely loved this crisp and it's a much healthier version of the classic crisp recipe.  I have made this recipe in a gluten-free version (for my gluten intolerant husband) and it is equally delicious.  I can't wait to try the topping with apples and pears!

Triple Berry Crisp

6 cups frozen berry blend (blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
1/4 cup unbleached flour (can use spelt flour, or a multipurpose gluten-free flour)
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups oats
1 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
1/2 cup unbleached flour (again can use spelt, or your favorite GF flour blend)
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp real maple syrup
1/2 cup slivered almonds or chopped walnuts
3/4 cup I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Deliciously Simple

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix first 4 ingredients together in a large bowl.  

Toss to coat berries and pour into a greased casserole dish.  

In the bowl of an electric mixer, place remaining ingredients for the crumbled topping.  Mix on low-medium speed until mixture sticks together with a crumbly texture.  

Place topping over the berries and bake for 1 hour until filling is bubbly and topping is golden brown.  Enjoy with your favorite vanilla ice cream or topping of choice.

Stylish and Comfortable Fitness Gear From Albion Fit

You can hit the gym in style with beautiful and comfortable women's fitness gear from Albion Fit.  They have everything you need from gorgeous swimwear to everyday lounge wear and workout clothing.  
A few of my favorites from the stylish swim line...

I'm also a big fan of the workout gear.  I love my blue 26.2 jacket!  A few of the reasons that I love this jacket from Albion....

Gorgeous color and unique graphic detail

Graphic design on the hood, too

Handy zipper pocket on the sleeve (great place to keep your key or other small gear when running!)

This jacket is a great weight (not too heavy or light) and made of a nylon/spandex blend.  It's fitted to the body to keep you warm on chilly days, but light enough to breathe and wick away moisture to keep you feeling and looking cool.  

It does run a little small.  I normally wear a small and had to go to a medium in this jacket because it's very fitted.  If you don't like things snug, then I would suggest going up a size and check out their sizing chart for the best fit possible.  

Now for the BEST part!!  You can win your very own 26.2 jacket in your choice of color!  All you have to do is "Like" Albion Fit on Facebook here and pin your favorite item from Albion Fit onto one of your Pinterest boards and leave the link to the pin in a comment below this post.  You must do both in order to qualify for an entry.  Contest ends 5/21/2013 at midnight.  Good luck and happy shopping!

In addition, I also have an exclusive promotional code for my readers to save $15 on a purchase of $50 or more; the code to use is amee15 and it expires 4/27/2013!

Fabulous Flatbread Pizza from Flatout

We had a great time last night preparing our own personal grilled pizzas using the new flatbreads from Flatout!  We used the Rustic White Flatbread and Spicy Italian Flatbread.  I let the kids design their own pizza and pick their crust.  My son loved the Spicy Italian Flatbread for his pepperoni pizza and my daughter picked the Rustic White Flatbread for her Hawaiian pizza.  The beauty of these flatbreads is that they cook very quickly and the kids absolutely LOVED them!  They also have 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of fiber per slice.  You can find Flatout Flatbreads at your local Walmart.  You can check here for a location near you.  You can also find Flatout on Facebook to check out their 30 Days of Grilled Pizza Party! 

Allen's Pepperoni & Buffalo Mozzarella Grilled Pizza

1 Flatout Spicy Italian Flatbread 
1/8 cup Homemade Pizza Sauce
5-6 slices large, uncured pepperoni
3-4 large, thin slices buffalo mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat grill to 350 degrees.  Place flatbread directly on the grill for 1-2 minutes.  Remove flatbread from grill, add toppings and return to grill and cook for 4 minutes.  

Lauren's Grilled Hawaiian Pizza
1 Flatout Rustic White Flatbread
1/8 cup Homemade Pizza Sauce *see above link for recipe
1/2 cup chopped, cooked ham
1/2 cup diced fresh pineapple
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Same as above.  Enjoy!

My daughter's exact comment after this meal was "those pizzas were the bomb!!"  We will definitely be making these again!

Since the hubs and I are gluten-free, we made this fabulous cauliflower pizza crust from Knead to Cook....
 Please visit my friend, Robin, over at Knead to Cook for this great recipe!

Evol Foods Gluten-Free Bowls & Burritos

I want to share some great products with you from Evol Foods.   They have delicious bowls and burritos that aren't only tasty, but healthy too!  I love the Evol bowls.  They are gluten-free, high in protein, made with natural and minimally processed ingredients and they are fast and convenient.  I also am super-duper crazy about their eco-friendly packaging!  The bowls come in a 100% compostable & recyclable bowl and the container box is 100% recyclable.  I love when corporations make an effort to develop more environmentally-friendly products.  
I am, honestly, really funny about eating frozen meals.  I usually am not a fan, because they taste artificial and come with a lovely freezer burn flavor to them.  The Evol bowls were great.  The teriyaki chicken was my favorite.  The chicken is all white, cage-free/hormone-free, meat and it's served with brown rice and a tasty medley of vegetables.  I thought that the flavor was just right, not too strong or bland.  I just added a little salt and pepper and enjoyed it for lunch.  
My second favorite would probably be the Fire Grilled Steak bowl.  I topped it with a little salsa for added flavor.  At 420 calories and 21 grams of protein/8 grams of fiber, it made a great quick and easy meal.  

The Evol burritos were enjoyed by my kids.  They loved dipping them in salsa!  You can visit Evol Foods online for additional product information.  Be sure and check out their awesome blog for delicious recipes!  Their products can be found at most grocery stores in the natural and organic section.

The Benefits of Krill Oil

The Magic Red Pill?
 I published a post last October about the benefits of Krill Oil verses Fish Oil.   You can read that here.  I've been taking Krill Oil from Viva Labs and I've been really pleased with the product.  The capsules are easy to swallow and there is no aftertaste or fishy burps.  I love the health benefits of this powerful Omega supplement.  It helps to reduce joint inflammation, boosts energy, increases cognitive function, improves eye health and has cardiovascular health benefits, etc.  Since I do pretty intensive workouts 5 days a week, taking Krill helps my body to recover.

A great resource on the many benefits of taking Krill Oil can be found here, so read on for more detailed information.  There is a difference in the Omega 3 structure of Krill Oil and Fish Oil.  I suggest that you do your own research and see which supplement is right for you.
