I actually wanted to have the very same breakfast as yesterday. Something warm and dry. But I found myself making pumpkin yogurt and just a few bites in regretted my choice!! I’m so weird these days.
The mix was un-overnight oats of sorts. The same kind of thing but NOT sitting overnight in the fridge. While this style still technically works, it lacks the dough flavor of overnight oats, so if you have the time, you should take it!
- ~1/2 cup plain yogurt
- ~1/3 cup pumpkin
- ~1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup raw oats
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 banana
- Granola sprinkle
- Pear Fig Jam blob
- Liquidy drizzle of Coconut Peanut Butter……say wha!?!
I received this sample from Tropical Traditions. It’s coconut butter with a peanut scent. I was hoping it would be more like peanut butter with coconut, or at least 50/50, but it’s definitely more coconut with peanut butter. Still delish though because anything coconut butter is awesome.
Just bites into this I wished I’d saved my stomach for a scone at the farmer’s market. Next week perhaps!
The Grocery Plan.
Every week I write down foods I’m craving and LOOSELY put them into a meal plan. As you’ll see, we’ll probably flip flop most of the recipes to different days or use different ingredients or just cancel a meal altogether. But at least this plan is available if we wish. Also a list of groceries for ingredients, plus staples of yogurt, sardines, a few canned things, etc. Oh, I forgot bananas and milk! Writing that down now! I usually plan a vegetable and a protein source for each night and fill the gaps with starches (toast, grain) and seasonings / garnishes like cheese.
So as you’ll see, my meal planning is anything but formal. Just a loose plan to get some foods in the fridge and cravings down on paper.
Lunch today = Charlottesville’s Vegetarian Festival!!
