There’s really nothing like a sweaty workout. I was feeling extremely blah this morning from 2 days of wine and overeating and left the gym practically glowing with refreshment. (A nice shower and bowl of oats helped too 🙂 ) I drank about 48 oz of water (2 bottles) while there – perhaps that’s why!? I climbed stairs for 45 minutes and then did some lunges and ab work.
Continuing my culinary tour of oatmeal variations, I made Sunny Side Oats for Anna today. She smothered hers in hot sauce – I sweetened mine with maple 😉 She proclaims that her favorite combo was the first day with Coconut + Banana + Almond Butter – because it just blew her away from the start. I hope I converted her to stove-top oats!
- 1/2 cup oats, vanilla soy milk, water, pinch salt
- 2 tbsp wheatberries
- 2 tbsp cottage cheese
- An egg, cooked on the side in a skillet with cooking spray
- Shredded Parrano cheese (like parmesan)
- 1 tsp maple syrup
I’m headed to Chemistry but I am coming back between lab to take Anna to the airport 😥 I’m not sure when and where I’ll eat lunch so I may have to save blogging for 5pm when I get back from lab 👿 .
SO sad that Anna’s leaving – we’ve had so much fun!
But I’m also SO excited Thanksgiving break is just around the corner!
