Do you remember eating Nutrigrain bars as a kid? I sure do. My two favorite flavours were strawberry and apple-cinnamon. My kids actually take them as snacks to school sometimes.

I wanted to try and recreate that strawberry-oat flavour but in something a little healthier.

My Healthy Strawberry Oat Bars only contain clean eating ingredients, which makes them 21 Day Fix approved too!

These bars were gone within 2 days!

We hope you enjoy them too.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 9 bars

Serving Size: 1 bar

Recipe inspired by Well Plated

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 1/2 a lemon)
  • 1 Tbsp granulated sugar (I used maple sugar)
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • For the vanilla glaze: (optional)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp milk

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Line an 8 x 8-inch baking pan with parchment paper so that the paper overhangs two sides, like handles.
  2. In a bowl, combine the oats, flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and ginger. Pour in the melted coconut oil and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumble mixture, then press the rest into the prepared pan.
  3. Scatter the strawberries over the crust. Sprinkle with cornstarch, lemon juice and sugar.
  4. Sprinkle the remaining crumble over top.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 35 - 40 minutes until the fruit is bubbly and the crumb topping is golden. Place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. While the bars are cooling, make the optional glaze: whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk (add more milk if you want a thinner consistency.)
  7. Remove bars from pan, drizzle with glaze, and slice.

Should I Become A Beachbody Coach?

by Jen on July 21, 2016

Are you asking yourself if Beachbody Coaching is right for you? Find the answer here!

Should I Become a Beachbody Coach? Find out here

A few years ago when I was over 220 pounds, I had 3 boys under the age of 3 at home and I was feeling very overwhelmed. I knew I wanted to lose the weight, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to do that being a very busy and tired mom.

That’s when a friend told me about Beachbody at-home workouts! And thank goodness she did because little did I know at the time, but that first workout I ordered would change my life forever!

I went from a tired, depressed, overweight mom…

My before

To an energetic, happy, strong mom…

My after

So when my coach told me that I could sign up as a coach and help others with their health and fitness, it was a no brainer for me! Why wouldn’t I want everyone to feel the way I feel now? Why wouldn’t I want to get paid for all of my referrals to the programs that changed my life?

Maybe you have heard about the coaching opportunity as well, but are wondering if it’s a good fit for you. Well, I’m here to give you all the information you need!

First, I want to tell you what Beachbody coaching is NOT:

IT DOES NOT INVOLVE HIGH PRESSURE SALES:

So many people who approach me about coaching are really scared that they will have to sell to family and friends. Thankfully, the answer is NO!! Beachbody is not like most other network marketing companies. Rather than trying to push product, we prefer to share a lifestyle. You’ll never see me advertising Beachbody products on social media. You’ll never see me pushing products on ANYONE I know. Instead, I teach my coaches to share their personal journey with Beachbody, to share their lifestyle, their progress, and their passion for health and fitness. It’s really that simple.

IT IS NOT A PYRAMID SCHEME:

A common question I get about coaching is, “Can I make as much money as the people above me?” And the answer is, YES! A pyramid scheme is when the person at the top makes all the money, and the people underneath them don’t have the chance to ever earn that much. With Beachbody, each coach’s income potential is unlimited! You are your own business. It’s up to you how much money you make. You can be top earner in the company or you can decide not to earn any money and just enjoy the discounts – the choice is yours.

Now that you know what Beachbody coaching isn’t, let’s determine if it would be a good for YOU!

DO YOU LOVE THE PROGRAMS ALREADY?

Are you someone who has fallen in love with the 21 Day Fix or TurboFire or P90X? Naturally, family and friends start asking you what you are doing to lose the weight, right?! If you’ve EVER been asked what you do for your workouts, then coaching is definitely for you. All you do is refer someone to your website where they can purchase the product through you so that you earn a commission!

ARE YOU SHY?

Are you naturally a shy person? Do you hate parties and crowds and prefer to stay home? Well guess what? So am I!!! This may surprise you, but I am one of the shyest people you’ll ever meet. But I bet from reading this blog and following my Facebook page, you may not have guessed it. Whether you are a people person or a shy person like me, you can succeed in this business. I share with my team HOW to be successful as a shy person in this business. Does it involve overcoming some of that fear? Yes, it does. That’s one of the reasons I started this blog! It’s easier for me to talk to you behind my computer screen. I work 99% of my business from the comfort of my home and I rarely have to talk to someone in person.

My "office"

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB?

Before becoming a mom, I worked in corporate Human Resources. It sounds like a good job, but I absolutely hated it! I didn’t like reporting to a boss, I didn’t like having to be at work from first thing in the morning until the evening, I hated taking the bus to downtown, and I dreaded Monday mornings!

When I found out we were having our first child, I already knew I wasn’t going back to that job. It was important to both my husband and I that I stay home with the kids. While I loved being at home, I knew that I needed something more. I wanted to contribute to our family income by working from home in some way.

After just 2 years, I was already making more than I did in my full time Human Resources job.

Are you still asking yourself if Beachbody Coaching is for you?

Let me give you a little bit more info:

IT’S AFFORDABLE:

I don’t know what other business only costs $39.95 to join! I mean seriously, you get your own website, your own online office, amazing discounts, and commissions plus bonuses (if you decide to build a team.) AND..you can get that $39.95 fee WAIVED if you sign up with a challenge pack which includes a workout program of your choosing and a month supply of Shakeology.

IT’S EASY TO CANCEL:

If you decide that coaching isn’t for you after all, you can cancel by filling out an online form. There are no costs or penalties to pay.

YOU GET TRAINING FROM TOP COACHES:

I provide you with the necessary training to get started. Plus, you’ll have access to other TOP coach’s training to help you hit your goals.

WE WORK ON YOUR GOALS:

Whether you want to just get the discounts, or refer people here and there to your site, or decide you want to earn a good income with coaching, I will honour your decision and meet you wherever you are at.

I am so glad I decided to become a Beachbody Coach 3 years ago. Not only have we been able to renovate our house and pay for family vacations, but I’ve met so many other amazing women along the way. I no longer feel alone and overwhelmed. Instead, I feel empowered and strong!

Are you ready to join our team of amazing coaches?

If you’re still not quite sure, I’ve got a 3 Day Sneak Peek into Coaching starting on Monday, July 25th. I’ll share with you some answers to some common questions about coaching and how I make the business work for me. Please fill out THIS application and I will email you to be added.

If you are sure you want to become a Beachbody coach, then please fill out the application below so we can get started on working towards your health, fitness, and business goals!

 

Beachbody does not guarantee any level of success or income from the Team Beachbody coach opportunity. Each coach’s income depends on his/her own efforts, diligence, and skill.
