I was inspired by my friend Sammie to try out her “Mess” that she has for breakfast each day. I’ve made my own versions of this yogurt-cereal-pumpkin combo before, but today I wanted to officially call it Mess like she does 🙂 Check out some of our scrumptious looking bowls: Sweet Potato Mess and Pumpkin Mess. I just love bowls of a variety of textures.
And I also wanted to have one of my new Chobani’s. I decided the vanilla would be a good mix with pumpkin.
Into my bowl:
- 1 vanilla Chobani
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1/4 cup GoLean
- 1/2 large banana (I am saving the other have to have at 10:30 when I get home before my workout!)
- 1/4 cup H2H
- 1/4 cup spelt berries
- Pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tbsp peanut butter, drizzled throughout the bowl like Sammie does
- Ground flax, which I got up mid-bite to add
I have to say – I kind of liked the bursts of PB I got every now and then. It was kind of hard to get it to spread out (hence the reason I had to use a little more than usual).
With tea –
The husband made coffee and had a lot leftover so I had a half cup after breakfast with soy milk –
I like soy milk a lot, but I think I prefer 1% milk in general. I really like that small amount of fat that milk has. This whole week I have been getting hungrier than usual around 10:30/11:00 and I really wonder if it’s the milk –> soy milk swap this week. I also don’t think soy milk does as well in stove-top oats. It tends to slightly curdle and isn’t as creamy (fat!?). Although I never had the problem with skim. Anyways, I think we will go back to buying our organic 1% milk and keep the soy for things like cereal or every-now-and-then oats change (or when we’re out of milk!).
I’m off to Organic, then working on my Foodservice project all day. Hopefully getting some other studying done too. Oh, and I have a workout planned for 11:00. Maybe just a run. Running is always easier for me than the mental commitment of “going to the gym” because I just have to step outside and I’m running! And hoppppefullly it won’t rain today!
We have a new Trader Joe’s opening today and I had plans to go, but it’s kind of far from my house so in the spirit of being thrifty and conserving gas, I’m going to save the trip for Wednesday when I am next to it for Girls on the Run. OH and listen to this BS – I DO have Micro lab this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She wrote “Fall Break” on the syllabus even though our class is on WEDNESDAY and we still have to go!! SOOOO ANNOYING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, I’m out!
