I told you the polenta would be making another appearance 😉
I basically prepared them the same as I do the marshmallow banana oatmeal but added the grits when the liquid was near boiling (since the package instructed this method). Next time I think I will add them at the beginning of cooking so it will be a slower heat – the grits were too hot to eat for a while! I made them with 1.5 servings of grits each (about 1/3 cup each) plus 1/2 cup skim milk and 1.5 cups water. I added 1 oz of raisins and 2 small bananas at the beginning as well. When they were thick, I added 2 tsp of brown sugar and topped ’em with toasty walnuts!
While this was delicious, I’ll say it again and again: Kath Classic Oats are still #1!!
With coffee –
Today’s breakfast was roughly 441 kcal, 7 grams fiber and 12 grams protein. That’s quite a bit less fiber and protein than normal so we’ll see how well these hold me. More calories also came from sugar (raisins, banana and brown sugar) so I suspect I’ll be hungry sooner!
My car in the shop – blarg. But luckily we live only about a mile and a quarter from the Honda dealership so I’m going to walk/run there when it’s done. I’m planning on more walking/running in conjunction with the car pickup for some exercise. Until then, I’m “running errands” on my computer 🙂
Found this Vanilla Nut Creme Tea at EarthFare. Didn’t even notice it was decaf until I got home, but that works well for tea for dessert! It’s VERY yummy. And the box said “best with milk and sugar” so that was my cue to add a little splenda today. I’m still on the fence about splenda…
