We went for one final beach run (I just typed fun instead of run - fun it was!) We did about 4 miles – 2 on the beach, and 2 on a new side street. I love how long this island is. It’s easy to just set out down a street and it goes on straight for miles. I had another banana and PB before I left –
We decided to use up some of our groceries for breakfast since oats are easily transported home.
I had a Pumpkin Fage Blackberry parfait topped with a few crushed almonds -
Along with a piece of toast (Rudi’s Honey Wheat) with PB and banana. I wanted to slather the PB on, but after lots of practice, I know what a moderate serving of PB on toast looks like and kept it to a thinish layer.
With coffee. We were out of sweetener, so I went a little heavy on the skim milk. I can drink unsweet coffee, but it’s not nearly as pleasurable!
When I have 2 parts to my breakfast like this compared to a heaping bowl of oatmeal, my eyes think “There’s no way that will fill you up” but especially with the coffee, I am quite full now. Nutritionally this breakfast was comparable to a bowl of oatmeal – whole grains, banana, PB, pumpkin, yogurt (=milk), a few nuts, so we’ll see how my stomach and hunger respond!
We’re off to Charleston!! Dining at the famous Hominy Grill for lunch. We’re not sure yet if we’ll be heading back after lunch or after dinner – but we’ll probably stick around and savor every final minute of our trip
