I just had a great breakfast, but more on that in a bit
Sorry for not posting last night but the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was sit in front of my computer. I’m hoping this changes soon- no computer = low productivity, but last night all I wanted to do was eat and lounge on the couch.
My class went well though, it seems like its going to be both interesting and useful.
Dinner was easy because I was super hungry and didn’t want to wait for anything to cook. This semester, Monday is definitely going to be a leftovers night! I warmed up the last of the pasta salad and bulked it up by throwing it on top of some fennel. It may seem like a weird combination but it worked!
I waited about 30 minutes and when I was still a little hungry, I mixed up some ricotta cheese, cranberry jam, sprinkle of cereal, and some cashews. I also had a teeny tiny apricot. I ate while reading a Travel magazine. I’m definitely lusting after a cruise
I think I managed to have cashews with every meal yesterday. I’m going to have to rein it in a bit
This morning I woke up early to get a run in before work and school. When I first got outside it was pitch dark but after 2 miles or so it started to lighten up. I can’t wait until it starts getting light earlier! I kept today’s run simple and completed 5 miles in around 39 minutes.
On Tuesdays this semester I will have a little more time to make breakfast at home. I couldn’t remember the last time I had oatmeal, so I decided today was the day. I’m sure many others have made oatmeal similar to this, but here is how I did it.
Peanut Butter Sunflower Seed Butter and Jelly Oats
1/3 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/2 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp raisins
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 banana, sliced thinly
1/3 cup frozen berries
1 T sunflower seed butter
Mix oatmeal, water, almond milk, and chia seeds over medium heat until liquid starts to thicken. Stir in raisins and turn heat down to medium-low. After oatmeal starts to boil, whip in sliced banana and stir in vanilla and cinnamon.
Microwave berries for about 30 seconds until they are warm. Once oatmeal reaches desired consistency, pour into bowl and top with berries (and liquid) and sunflower seed butter.
I had mine with an adora disc and a cup of coffee with soy creamer.
What a perfect breakfast! I’m off to work and then class. Thankfully today is a shorter day and I should be home before 6.
Have a great morning!
