It was all about the stove-top oats this morning!!!! It's been months since my last bowl of real oats, and I thoroughly enjoyed every last bite of this breakfast. In the mix was the standard 40g of oats with 1/3 cup skim milk, 1/3 cup water, a pinch of salt, one whole and very ripe banana, cinnamon, brown sugar, and of course a spoonful of crunchy peanut butter. Coffee with skim milk also made an unphotographed appearance.
I worked the 7-3 shift this morning (so the above oats were eaten at 5:30, sooo earlyyy) and I brought a lunch that I made the night before: two ounces of whole wheat linguine with tomato basil sauce, plain yogurt, and a banana.
I went with a mixed greens salad with rotisserie chicken, olives, jalapenos (which I wound up taking off since the flavours just did not compliment each other), rosemary and garlic croutons, rice vinegar, and olive oil. For dessert I had the most decadent banana yogurt with a small handful of Kashi Go-Lean Crunch. It's a grocery store brand yogurt and it's flavoured but the sugar content isn't that crazy and it's so thick and delicious, I think I'll have to buy this one again.
After class I baked up a batch of Kath's VeggieGirl Inspired Pumpkin Bread (in muffin form) for the boyfriend since he is so good to me :) He's already devoured 3, I had half of one. So doughy, so good, and a perfect treat to celebrate the coming of fall!
Today's (rough) total: 1355MONDAY
Breakfast this morning was 40g of oats that I soaked overnight in 1/2 cup water, then in the morning added in a few big spoonfuls of plain yogurt, cinnamon, and a banana.
I packed a lunch but wound up getting to eat it at home because I was left off work early :) I had carrots and cucumber slices with 2 tablespoons of roasted garlic hummus, rotisserie chicken with honey mustard on a whole wheat English muffin, and a plain yogurt that I jazzed up with a little fresh cut mango. I definitely gnawed on the pit after cutting up that mango.... Can't waste any of that deliciousness!! :)
Dinner was kind of in stages- I had class from 6-9 so I started eating around 4 and just kind of ate constantly until it was time to leave. I started with a bowl of whole wheat linguine with tomato basil sauce (about 2 ounces of pasta). This was the first meal I cooked on my (now working) stove in my new apartment!!! I think it was extra tasty just because I was so happy to have cooked food lol.
Next up I had about 1/2 cup of microwaved egg whites with salt and pepper and a generous pile of ketchup. On the side was half of a whole wheat English muffin and some mango slices.
Lately I've been absolutely hooked on The Biggest Loser Australia (full seasons on YouTube!!!!) And I'm a little embarassed to admit that I'm nearly done season one. It's kind of where all my free time is going.
