Monday morning when I woke up I was craving PB&J. All I wanted was a solid PB&J on whole wheat bread, cut diagonally (so I don’t have to eat the crusts). I wanted it to be 1993. Oh…what I would give…okay, not really.
Since I don’t have bread (I’m moving in 11 days and refuse to buy more groceries — so I’m eating through my cupboard/freezer/fridge), I decided to to a twist on the classic PB&J and came up with:
PB&J Oats! Best.Idea.Ever.
1/3 c oats
1 tbsp pb
1 tbsp of momma’s strawberry preserves
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp Amazing Meal
1/4 c almond milk
Mmmm.. I want more.
Lunch yesterday consisted of more goodies from the cupboard. Enter: enchillada sauce (I found a use for it thanks to Julia), brown rice, pinto beans (from a can), canned corn w/ red & green peppers. Mix, heat, enjoy.
And a spinach salad on the side with red wine vinaigrette.
Snacks yesterday included: a Luna Bar (I found the Dulce de Leche bar at Treasure Island, and while this was meant to be a pre-workout snack. I couldn’t resist its dairy free goodness) and some popcorn. Not necessarily the healthiest of snacks. But I was thoroughly satisfied.
And dinner last night was the Mandarin Orange salad from Wendy’s (my fridge is getting bare and nothing sounded appetzing). And post-dinner workout was 5.5 miles on the crosstrainer and 40 minutes of weights/stretching.
And now, I’m off to have brunch with Mr. K @ Corner Bakery!
