Raspberry + Wheatberry Oatmeal
with Banana, Flax + Walnuts
I love all berries, raspberries especially. I could probably eat a pint a day!
Despite having an open agenda today, I got up with the husband to workout. I have to say, it was nice to be exercised and fed by 8 a.m. – leaves the day wide open! But we have CLOUDS and RAIN – boooooooo! That is not conducive to hammocking. But I guess it is good for some baking. My sister is coming for dinner tonight, so I think I’ll baking something fun. I’m going to do it this morning with a piece of minty gum in my mouth to prevent me from nibbling my way through. Now I just have to decide on a recipe!
Gym this morning was ET and pull-up machine for a round of upper body challenges. My biceps have really gotten toned from all the pull-ups! I used to be able to do 1.5 real pull-ups (I do 3 sets of 10 of assisted ones) so I should see if I can do 2 full ones now – or maybe 3-4!
I had half a slice of spelt bread with PB before we left. The spelt wasn’t as filling as my other toast breakfasts.
Breakfast was our usual oats/banana/hemp/milk/water/flax/vanilla base with about 1/4 cup of wheatberries and 1/2 a cup of raspberries stirred in (and a few for garnish!) plus toasted walnuts and a half tsp of brown sugar on top.
In our HUGE Pottery Barn bowls. They aren’t as photogenic because they’re so big you have to get down in them with the camera!
With coffee. I need a break from coffee. It’s starting to give me that headachy/shoulder-achy feeling I get when I have it too often. I just love it so much. I’ll take a few days off during my weekend trip to Baltimore.
Now to find a recipe!
