More Eating Myself Crazy Recipes

Mint-Cucumber-Vodka-Cocktail-300x250It has been two years since my release of Eating Myself Crazy and readers have been asking when I am going to publish a cookbook. They are hungry for more recipes! Well sadly I won’t be working on a cookbook anytime soon. But the good news is that I will give you a couple staple healthy recipes I often use in my household. I also have a favorite cocktail I like to serve to guests.

Let’s start with a smoothie. In my family there are three guys with BIG appetites and speedy metabolisms. A smoothie for breakfast isn’t going to fly unless it is going to sustain them for a few hours. My oldest also uses this smoothie after his workout. It is both filling and satisfying.

In a blender throw in:

1 cup of plain yogurt or Greek yogurt

½ banana

1 large egg

½ ripe avocado

½ cup of rolled oats

1 scoop of chocolate or vanilla whey or vegan protein powder (my son uses whey, I like the vegan)

1 TBSP of ground chia seed

1 tsp of honey (optional for sweetness)

Unsweetened Almond Milk or 2% milk (for preferred thickness)

This is not one of those sweet desserty types of smoothies little kids love, it is a hearty smoothie that has will help carry you through the morning. I often split this between my husband and myself. If you want to make it more appealing for the kids then I suggest putting in the full banana and using chocolate-flavored yogurt or frozen plain yogurt.


Second recipe is a sweet treat that satisfies that sugar craving and kids love. It is flourless as well. I guarantee your family will keep asking you to bake more!

Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

1 large egg

1 ½ Tbsp. of honey

1 ripe banana

½ cup almond butter or peanut butter

1 tsp. vanilla

¼ tsp of stevia or 2 tsp. of brown sugar

½ cup of rolled oats

¼ of ground flax

2 Tbsp. of hemp seed

½ tsp. of baking soda

¼ tsp of baking powder

¼ cup of walnut pieces

½ tsp of cinnamon

½ cup of chocolate chips

Do not use muffin cups but grease muffin tins with butter or coconut butter. Fill the muffin tins right to the top. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. They are better under baked then over baked. Makes 6.


The last recipe will be a summer cocktail drink that looks and tastes refreshing. We enjoy this drink on our patio on a hot sunny day. Make this in a glass pitcher for guests and have lots of ice handy.

Cucumber Mint Summer Cocktail

In a glass pitcher:

3 ounces of lime vodka (optional)

1 can of club soda

4 cups of green tea (brewed and cooled)

1 500 ml bottle of pear or lemon flavored water (I buy mine at Shopper’s Drug Mart)

Sliced cucumbers

Sliced limes

Fresh mint leaves

Add water and ice as per desired.  Cheers!

 I truly hope you find these recipes as tasty as we do in the Wynes household. We all have big appetites and love food! Eating healthy should not feel like you are restricting yourself or constantly hungry. Yes, life is short but you will live longer if you throw in a few good healthy habits along they way.
