Got up at 5:30 this morning to get started on the day! I’m very productive between 5am and about 3pm and then productivity rapidly declines as dinner nears. So I know my best time to work is the morning!
I had a cup of tea with a splash of skim milk around 5:45 to warm and wake me up –
After an hour and a half of work I started to get pretty hungry and made Classic Kath Oatmeal: rolled oats with banana, flax, cinnamon, vanilla, walnuts and almond butter. I also used 1/2 water, 1/4 hemp milk, and 1/4 skim. I don’t think I can really taste the hemp milk so I’m going to try it 1/2 and 1/2 tomorrow. I used part skim because I was worried the hemp milk would separate, but I think it’s OK over medium heat (it always clumps when I add it to hot tea/coffee so I don’t think it really likes heating!)
And more tea!
Breakfast today was ~460 kcal, 9 grams fiber, and 17 grams protein.
I’m off to the gym in a bit, then on to classes, then tonight we have a dietetics meeting to attend for one of our classes so I’ll be studying on campus until 5:30 for that. There’s supposed to be food at the meeting, but I’m not sure how much or what types of foods they will have, so Christy and I have tentatively planned to go to dinner afterwards if we need to. I would hope a dietetics association would have healthy food on hand!

Have a wonderful day!
