Mango + Almond Oatmeal
with Trader Joe’s Macadamia-Cashew Butter
I think it was BethT that pointed out that SELF Magazine recently had a blurb about the benefits of combining mango and almonds. I have to say, it’s quite a delicious combination too 🙂
Today’s bowl of oats was half vanilla hemp milk, half water, pinch salt, about 1/3 a mango (added in the beginning of cooking)
, 1/2 a tbsp flax, vanilla, sliced toasted almonds and a spoonful of Macadamia-Cashew butter to round out the tropical flavor. I should have added a sprinkle of coconut too!
With coffee, breakfast was about 442 kcal, 9 grams fiber and 15 grams protein.
I had a mini Luna bar before my workout today. It wasn’t quite enough and I started to get really hungry about 45 minutes into my workout. Next time I might add some PB to it, or just save these for tide-me-overs and desserts.
At the gym, I did 40 minutes on the ET plus lifting with the husband. I didn’t have to get up early today but I decided to go with him to spend some time together. Every minute counts!
I’m not sure of the plan for today and if I’m going to class or not yet. It’s an hour commute there and back and we’re just having a review in class today (and Chemistry is over). While I would benefit from the review, that’s a lot of driving for 50 minutes when I could just study here instead. But we are getting a test back… So I emailed my Prof and asked if since I feel comfortable with the topic if I should come and she hasn’t replied. I hope that wasn’t too obnoxious of a question, but professors are generally sympathetic to those of us who commute from Charlotte. She hasn’t responded yet, so I think that means I should go…. blarg. I’m going to wait and see if she replies before 10:00 and go if she doesn’t.
Otherwise, I need to work on my Stats test today and get ready for a big trip up to Davidson tonight for the alumni weekend festivities. We’re hosting the husband’s dad and his girlfriend here tonight, so add houseguest prep to my to-do list! Tomorrow’s going to be a crazy day too.
No Class or Driving! Just got this email with 15 minutes to spare…
I wouldn’t worry about missing class. I will send you your lab grade later today.
And you are welcome for the interesting semester. I enjoyed having you in my class.
