Healthy Blueberry Crisp

by Jen on August 22, 2016

A blueberry crisp made with clean eating ingredients, not that you can tell though!

Healthy Blueberry Crisp. Made with clean eating ingredients, but you wouldn't know it!

One of my favorite desserts growing up as a kid was Blueberry Crisp.

Our family called it Blueberry Grunt! I don’t know why? Maybe you grunt each time you take a bite because it’s so good?!

Anyway, typical blueberry crisp recipes call for a lot of sugar! Like, a lot!

I wanted to make one with a lot less sugar. And I wanted it to have a good crust on it. There’s nothing worse than a “healthy” crisp that has about 3 oats on top. Gimme some more oats!!!

But I also wanted to make it less runny. I hate when I make a crisp and the whole bottom of the pan is liquid.

So I was thinking, what could I add that would soak up the liquid of the fruit.

And then it dawned on me…chia seeds!!!

Chia seeds are awesome at soaking up liquid. Plus, they provide essential omega-3 fats that our bodies need. And believe me, you don’t even notice that they are in this blueberry crisp!

We were all in love with this Healthy Blueberry Crisp! It was amazing.

I prefer mine naked…without ice cream. But for the kids and hubby, I served theirs with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

So freakin’ good!

Have you ever taken part in a diet bet? A diet bet is basically where you join a weight loss group and bet that you are going to lose a certain amount of weight. Everyone who participates puts in money. If you win, awesome – YOU get the money! If you lose, you get nothing.

Bummer.

But what if you could participate in something similar, except you didn’t have to “bet” and put in your own money? All you had to do was participate, and just for participating, you earn money!

This is what the Beachbody Health Bet is all about!

Beachbody is handing over $1 – 3 million dollars in cash prizes to customers who join an accountability group using the My Challenge Tracker App (which is the private app I use for all of my Drop a Dress Size groups.) All YOU need to do is log your workouts and your Shakeology.

Here’s a screenshot of me using the app:

My Challenge Tracker App

WHAT IS THE BEACHBODY HEALTH BET?

The challenge is quite simple. From September 5th – October 2nd, you can qualify to win the cash prize. Here are the guidelines for qualification:

  • RULE 1: You must be registered in my challenge group app by August 31st.
  • RULE 2: Log a minimum of 3 WORKOUTS every week.
  • RULE 3: Log a minimum of 5 SHAKEOLOGY’S every week with a PICTURE attached.
  • RULE 4: You must submit a valid first name, last name, email, and mailing address in order to get paid.

IF YOU MEET ALL OF THE QUALIFICATIONS ABOVE, YOU GET TO SPLIT THE MONEY EQUALLY WITH EVERYONE ELSE WHO DOES TOO! HOW EASY IS THAT?!

OTHER BENEFITS OF JOINING:

===> You get to workout from the comfort of your own home! You can workout when you want and where you want. You also get to choose the workout (it doesn’t have to be a Beachbody workout.)

===> You get to choose the flavour of Shakeology you would like. There are many to choose from: chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, cafe latte, greenberry, chocolate vegan, or tropical strawberry vegan (the chocolate vegan is my personal favorite!)

===> You’ll get to meet like-minded women on the same journey as yourself.

===> I’ll share with you my daily tips for success! I’m a busy mom of 3 who has lost 90 pounds, and I’m going to share with you the tips on how I did that. I’ll also share a customizable meal plan that contains healthy, family-friendly, and delicious recipes.

===> Accountability! It’s proven that checking in with a group of friends on the same mission as you helps keep you on track and more likely to finish the program. Plus, I like to have fun in my groups by having mini prizes and giveaways.

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN:

1. I must be your Team Beachbody Coach.  If you don’t have one…no problem!  Just go to my site and sign up with me for FREE!

2. You must commit to purchasing a Challenge Pack of your choice which comes with the workouts, Shakeology, and a complete nutrition guide.  No more wondering if the workouts you are doing are going to get you results.  You know that it is tried and tested (myself included!) and it works.

The next question I always get is, “Do I have to do Shakeology?”  Well, trust me, it will make your life so much easier. Shakeology is the nutrition drink that is the cornerstone of success with these programs. You can workout everyday and not see the full results if you’re not eating healthy and filling your body with the right nutrients. Shakeology is what tells your body “I’ve got what I need, unload the rest” and you see the fat come off. This isn’t a super pill that works by magic! This is a whole foods based drink that conditions the body to be strong and healthy while you exercise. You don’t lose weight by starving your body of food but by only giving it the right food! In a nutshell, it staves off hunger, cuts cravings, and keeps you healthy during this journey.

(NOTE: if you already have the workout, you can purchase the Shakeology by itself. Or, if you are already a customer of mine on Shakeology home direct, you are eligible to join!)

3. You must commit to being an active participant in the group.  I am investing in you for the month, so please do yourself a favour and commit to YOU!  Give it 100% effort and trust that I would not lead you in the wrong direction.  I am here to guide you, support you, and give you my very best tips for reaching your health and fitness goals.

So there you go – an easy way to earn some cash this September!!

ARE YOU IN?

Please fill out this form for my exclusive September Health Bet group and I’ll email you your next steps!!
