Good morning! I am feeling muuuuch better this morning. I went to sleep very early last night and don’t have to be at work until mid-morning, so I slept almost 10 hours! It was amazing. I couldn’t believe when my alarm went off that I had slept from 10 pm to 8 am! I don’t even feel groggy- I think my body needed all of that sleep.
I also woke up very hungry. I looked around the fridge, trying to come up with something creative and different from what I’ve had the past two days. But, I really wanted nothing but oats. I think its official- I’m addicted!
I’m telling you, I never liked oats. But I think this TJ’s breakfast cereal has the best consistency and texture. And I love the combination of flavors I’ve been using to bulk up the taste. Today’s oats were very similar to yesterday’s: almond milk + water, 1 scoop of pumpkin, 1 tbspn of PB, 1/2 a banana, a drizzle of maple syrup, and 3/4 of a peach (not cooked today- just plain; didn’t feel inspired to cook that much!). I also added a cinnamon stick to my oats as they cooked, to get a little bit of spicy cinnamon flavor in there.
I served it in one of my pretty bowls again today…
I love these guys. They make everything extra lovely! They were a birthday gift from my Momma last year!
I couldn’t eat all of the oats. I ate about 1/2- 2/3. I will probably eat the rest cold for a mid-morning snack!
It was a lot of oats!
While my oats cooked, I made lunch, so I figured I could give you guys a snapshot/ preview here of what it will be!
An “everything” salad: lettuce, cucumber, carrots, tuna, garbanzos, corn, and golden raisins.
Lots of great vitamins, minerals, and protein for staying power! I will probably just dress it with some balsamic vinaigrette.
I’m going to do some yoga on my mat at home before work- maybe one of my YogaDownload.com classes again.
Have a wonderful Wednesday- we are half-way there!
