Orange Creamsicle Overnight Oats

We have a long love affair with orange creamsicles that dates back to elementary school. While our cook-everything-from-scratch, granola baking hippie (minus the drugs) mom, who had the best intentions to keep us healthy, gave us her low-sugar, home-cooked dessert every night, she did give us money to buy ice cream at school every Friday for a special indulgence. We’d look forward to it all week long, and we’d dream of the Orange Creamsicle we’d often choose (the Strawberry Shortcake ice cream bar took a close second! 🙂 ). Now, as registered dietitians with a sweet tooth that we work hard to keep in check, we still love the flavor of orange creamsicles, and this healthy rendition of an orange creamsicle is inspired by our childhood Friday ice cream special!

Every feel rushed in the morning?! We hear ya! These are for you! And because…

 

we can’t all be morning people, and for those of you who aren’t – these Orange Creamsicle overnight oats will be your wake-up call! Not only can they be fully prepared the night before, but they also provide the nutrients you need to get your day started on the right foot, no matter what side of the bed you got off of.

 

We call this our Shake, Rattle and Roll breakfast! Simply put all the ingredients in a jar, shake them, rattle ’em if you please 😉 and refrigerate! Roll out the door with them in the morning!

 

Healthy Bonuses:

The oats are rich in energy-revving whole grain carbohydrates to keep you fueled. Plus, their soluble fiber helps to lower cholesterol and fight heart disease.

 

 

 

Packed with oranges which are a great source of vitamin C, this breakfast will help to bolster your immune system, and as an added bonus it helps with the formation of collagen – so you can look forward to healthy and younger-looking skin! And oats combined with oranges are the perfect match, since the iron in the oats is more easily absorbed with the help of vitamin C!

We took the AGS Health & Wellness Genetic Test!

 

We have to tell you that we just did the coolest thing.  EVER.

 

We’ve been curious for a long time about our genes and how they influence our health, the food choices we should make and our exercise endurance and strength (and of course, as identical twins, when we tie in a competition or choose the same favorite meal at a restaurant when we’re not together, we are reminded just how fascinating genetics are!) — and we just had the opportunity to find this all out, based on our genes!

 

So when we were given the opportunity to sample the Health and Wellness Genetic Test from Advanced Genomics Solutions, we were busting at the seams with excitement–and we can’t wait for our results!  It’s really neat, because the test is non-invasive (yep, no blood draws! Nada! You simply rub a swab on the inside of your cheek- so easy, peasy.) and we took the test in the comfort of our home (Lyssie may have even been in her jammies, but don’t tell her I ratted her out! 🙂 ), sealed it up and shipped out– and all within 10 minutes.  We encourage you to take it too!

 

Have you ever wondered what is in your GENES?

Have you ever wondered…

– Why you don’t lose weight despite eating a specific diet or exercising intensely?
– Why you crave certain foods?
– Why you don’t feel full after a large meal?
– If you respond better to endurance over strength exercise?
– If the vitamin supplements you take are effective for you?

ITS ALL IN YOUR GENES!!!

And guess what?!  Advanced Genomics Solutions has a special offer for you as our loyal Nutrition Twins’ blog reader!–  $150 off the Health and Wellness Genetic Test just click the link below.

Watermelon Cucumber ACV “Detox” Infusion

We’re so excited about this one! 🙂

 

As registered dietitian nutritionists, we didn’t need the new study out in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics that showed that people who increased their water by one, two or three cups a day ate up to 205 calories fewer daily and ingested 200 fewer milligrams of sodium daily, to tell us that water helps you get lean and bloat free. And since you’ve been writing us and asking us to share more “detox” drinks, you may have even witnessed first-hand what drinking more water (especially when it tastes great and just happens to have some added bonuses!) does for your energy level and your quest to lose fat too, if that’s your goal.

 

Our clients who drink these beverages do seem to have some of the best results, which inspires us to keep creating more! They’ve become so important in the success of our clients that we’ve even included them as an important part in our 21-Day Body RebootTM,  our life-altering program that helps you to lose your last 10 pounds or more—while going wild on the weekend You may remember some of our other faves!

Cucumber Blueberry Water Flush

Lemon Ginger Turmeric Tea “Detox”

Lemon Ginger Detox drink

Vitamin C Infused “Detox” Water  And now we’ve got this dreamy number!

One of the best things about these bloat flushing numbers is that when you drink them, they immediately get your mind back on the healthy track as you know you’re doing something good for your body. Plus, they flood your body with nutrients that help to mop up damage from pollution, stress, environmental toxins and from foods that increase inflammation in the body.

 

Lessening all of this damage makes your body more resilient and calmer on the inside to help your body repair and rejuvenate—both on the inside and outside. And although your body is equipped to detox and cleanse itself on its own, naturally, certain health-promoting foods and drinks, like this one, assist it in its process.

 

These drinks help to prevent you from feeling hungry and overdoing it on unhealthy foods as it fills your stomach.  Plus, this drink floods your body with  anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and ingredients that help the body in its natural detoxification process.  This is especially important when it comes to weight loss as these special nutrients are essential for flushing the toxins that are released from your fat cells as a normal part of fat breakdown. If you overindulge, these same nutrients are key to get rid of those toxins!

 

 

For you science nerds like us, who like to know why everything is happening in your body, read below to see why this yummy drink works it’s magic:

 

The water: To fight bloat, water flushes waste from of our system and keeps our kidneys and intestines in tip top shape. And water helps the body to run optimally as every process in the body relies on water.

 

The Watermelon:

Goodbye bloat! Along with the water in this drink itself, watermelon supplies a hefty dose of water–92%– while also providing ample potassium; the two help to flush bloating sodium and restore normal hydration status so you can kiss puffy hands and feet and a bloated belly goodbye!

 

  • Contains lycopene

Watermelons’ red color comes from the phytonutrient lycopene which not only fights cancer, but it acts a natural sunblock, to help keep your skin young and healthy.  Lycopene also has potent anti-inflammatory properties to calm damage inside your body and fight disease (it’s chronic inflammation that’s associated with heart disease, diabetes and cancer!).

 

Lemons

Lemon helps to promote the activity of a liver enzyme that converts harmful, toxic substances to less harsh chemicals (via the liver through a compound called d-limonene.). Packed with vitamin C, which is a potent antioxidant which mops up free radicals from environmental toxins, stress, alcohol, fatty foods and other toxins and helps to prevent them from damaging your body.  Vitamin C also keeps the skin radiant and youthful by helping to boost levels of collagen, which helps to keep the skin elastic. And lemons add a refreshing perk to any drink! ;)A fantastic source of vitamin C, lemons not only keep your immune system strong, but vitamin C plays a role in collagen production, so it helps to keep your skin soft and supple.  Plus, if you drink this with a food that contains iron, like chicken, fish, spinach or beans, the vitamin C helps you to better absorb the iron!

 

Cucumber

Cucumbers are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which are especially helpful if you have had too much salt the night before and woke up feeling swollen. Cucumbers are high in both water and potassium, which work their magic because they flush bloat by restoring normal fluid balance; you can kiss puffiness goodbye.

Watermelon Cucumber ACV “Detox” Infusion

 

You can keep this refreshing elixir chilled in the refrigerator for up to 2 days with the fruit left in the water. Just be sure to remove the citrus rinds to avoid bitterness, as well as any melons or berries (which don’t hold up well when left in the water) after the initial overnight infusion. After removing all of the fruit in the morning, the water can be kept chilled and enjoyed for up to 3 days. .(Note: If you take this awesome “de-bloater” on- the- go with the fruit in it, and it’s unrefrigerated, discard the fruit at the end of the day.

Strategies to Quickly “De-Puff”, Lighten Up and Flush Bloat

 

As registered dietitians and personal trainers we get a lot of questions about tips for getting a flat belly when people are heading to the beach, the BBQ or an event. We completely get it –and relate to not wanting to look bloated when arriving at your destination–whether you’re stepping into a bathing suit, a dress, or any outfit, you want to look and feel your best! 🙂   So if anything related to your tummy causes you angst before your event, believe us, you’re not alone–and we can help!

 Here’s what to do: 

  1. Water, water and more water.  Water will keep you hydrated, stave off dehydration headaches, moisturize dry and weathered- looking skin, prevent mistaking hunger for thirst, and it will help to flush sodium and other bloating culprits out of your body so you can arrive at your event feeling bloat- free. It also helps push waste out of your colon for an even flatter belly. Sip extra water the day before your event and leading  up to your event.  Skip sodium packed tomato juice and bloating soda and seltzer (the carbonation puts excess gas and bubbles in your stomach -and no one wants that! And before you leave for your event, we highly recommend sipping one of these “flushing” drinks between meals (or with them too) to keep your mind and body on the healthy track:

Cool Citrus Cucumber Detox

Apple Cider Vinegar & Lime Detox Drink

Cucumber Blueberry Water Flush

Lemon Ginger Detox

Mixed Citrus Ginger Flush

Spicy_Metabolism_drink_booster1

 

2. Go to town on veggies-  fill half your plate with them for the days leading up to your event so you’ll have less room for the heavier stuff (carbs, protein and fat)-  this will help you to shed some belly fat.  Vegetables are packed with water, so they’ll help you to stay hydrated, plus they’re packed with fiber to get your digestive tract moving, pushing out wastes, salt and toxins from your colon along with unsightly belly bulges from a constipating diet (or all-too-familiar travel constipation). Plus, you’ll automatically feel healthier and immediately get your mind and body back on the healthy track knowing that you’re loading up on antioxidant-rich, super low-calorie fare instead of heavier fare. 

(Note: If you’re not accustomed to eating many veggies or fiber, you may need to increase your intake gradually to allow your intestinal tract time to adjust. You may find cooked vegetables easier to digest than raw ones and may want to start by including them and allowing your body time to adjust).

When you’re home try these veggie recipes

3.“Zip Up” Your Abs: We rely on this and it truly makes a huge flat-belly difference!  For the days leading up to your event, activate your abs by squeezing them in tight and pulling them back against your spine as you exhale. Think of zipping your abs together by using your muscles to contract your abs by pulling in from the center. Think about pulling everything in from a vertical line from your belly button and up to between your breastbone and pulling everything in and back towards your spine. Think zipping together. Hold for a count of 10 as you continue to exhale. Slowly release and repeat for 10 reps at least three times throughout your flight, but ideally as much as possible. Not only will this create good posture, it will also wake up the ab muscles and make it easier to keep your abs in, preventing them from looking bloated. Also, breathing out and pushing air out of the stomach while pulling the muscles in tight helps to flatten your stomach, so you’ll be a step ahead of the game.  Bonus: Your abs will be warmed up for when you’re at your event and need to keep your abs tight! 😉 You can see the video for an example here in this post.

 

 

4. Do some form of cardio every day before the event.  Aim for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Exercise and water both get your intestinal tract going to get things moving out of your colon and they will work in tandem with veggies and other sources of fiber to prevent constipation and the gut bulges that come with it!

The morning of your event: 

 

5. Wake up and immediately drink 16 ounces (or more of water) and avoid surprising bloaters.
See step 1 for why this works! Also avoid surprising bloat promoters like chewing gum and sipping through a straw that can cause belly bloat by drawing excess air into your stomach. Carbonated beverages also leave your stomach full of gas.

 

6. Eat a breakfast that is high in fiber and protein. It will set you on the healthy-track for the entire day, and you’ll immediately feel great both mentally and physically. The fiber will help you to feel satisfied by filling up your stomach and assisting your digestive tract in making sure everything keeps moving along to prevent constipation and bloat while the protein will keep you satiated. Stay away from super heavy breakfasts that will weigh you down and make you feel heavy. Try a Greek yogurt, a piece of fruit and a tablespoon of chia seeds or a hard-boiled egg with a small portion of oatmeal with a few slivered almonds and berries.  This satisfying weight loss breakfast is pretty easy to make or order anywhere, just ask that they don’t use oil or butter in the pan.  Ask them to spritz it with oil if they must.

 

7. Immediately before your event, Do This:

 Sip on green tea. It contains the amino acid theanine which brings on a mental calmness, yet alertness which will make it easier for you to relax and enjoy your vacation. You’ll feel healthy and good about yourself. Plus, green tea will flood your body with antioxidants and mop up some of the free radicals circulating in your body, which can be especially helpful if you had a lot of stress before you left for your vacay or if you were breathing too much jet fuel on the runway. (Simply pack a tea bag in your luggage and get a cup of hot water at the hotel, voila!)

 

 

10. And follow these tips as much as possible–including trying this drink if you can–at least when you get back!
