Guess what ingredient found its way into my bowl?
ONIONS. In the form of powder. Blech!
It’s also the worst bowl ever because I actually burned it and had to switch pots! What’s up with me this weekend!?!? My mom’s stove is antique and the oats were taking forever to heat up and I put it on high heat – oops. She also doesn’t have non-stock pots, so that didn’t help.
Looks quite good doesn’t it?
The problem was egg beaters. Mom suggested we add some for extra protein (she’s into protein these days she says) so I thought why not. I don’t eat egg beaters because I know there is onion powder in them (I only like egg whites in a carton b/c they are clean), but I don’t know what I was thinking when I thought “Eh, I won’t taste it.” WRONG. It was in every bite like eating garlic bread for breakfast!
Here’s what all went in:
- 1/2 cup oats, milk, water, 1/2 banana, pinch salt, vanilla
- About 1 tbsp egg beaters
- 1/5th or so crumbled Superfood ProBar
- A few sliced almonds
- Spoonful PB
But I am full now, so it did its job. I just hope my onion breath goes away soon!
We’ve got our lunch packed and are setting out in this freezing weather. See you in Maryland! (Knock on wood…)
