Today was delicious and oat-like. The rain was crazy here, so was the wind, then the sun, which surprisingly produced heat, then more rain. Ah, but at last, an evening full of blog reading and good food. Here's an awesome food blogger: Krista's Kravings who always seems to have a great giveaway to share. Can you say, free Nature's Path Granola Bars?!
Anyhow, I started this Monday off with a bowl of oats:
oats, milk, h20, cinnamon, brown sugah, strawberries, raw almonds, 1 banana, raisins.
1 kiwi & 1 apple. I'm trying to "eat less" so I skipped my raw oats, but then I was starving like an hour later. Tomorrow I will happily welcome my 8am oats back into my life. Oh joy!
squished almond butter/organic jam sammich on whole wheat, 1 mandarin, english cucumber, baby carrots, red grapes
frozen homemade granola bar, all beat-up like! So tasty!!
5 miles on elliptical - 49:50 (Mr.Treadmill:occupied)
25 mins stretch/weights/abs
I felt so good, but was bummed out that I couldn't run.
1 nanner, almond butter, cinnamon, raisins, raw almonds
my mum's chicken from Saturday (skinless chicken breast with yummy breading baked onto it), with my rosemary brown rice and a huge serving of steamed broccoli (attacked with a hint of salt, 'cause that's how it goes, son!)
I made an amazing bread! Well, I don't really know if it's amazing or not, 'cause I have yet to try it. But it looks amazing, and smells amazing, and was super easy! Tomorrow I'll put up the recipe & the "how it tasted" review! I'm excited... a whole lot.
oh & while I made the bread, and cooked up some beans for tomorrow, I had some chickpeas/garbanzos in the oven getting all toasty. I've had leftover garbanzos for a while and didn't know what to do with them. But I stumbled upon a great recipe on carrotsncake.com on how to make 'em crunchy and tasty (just some olive oil, spices, and a super hot oven for a half hour!). I munched on a few of them while cooking up a storm after dinner:
so yummy and crunchy!!
As the nighttime arrived, my stomach started to growl (yes!! that means I get oats!!) so I heated up some oatmeal with frozen blueberries.
yum times 8 million. Totally hit the spot. The end!
