I’m sensing a trend with my posts – breakfast happens. Lunch happens. Naptime happens and I post. Dinners go missing!
Here is last night’s dinner via Instagram:
Breakfast this morning was another stab at steel cut oats in the rice cooker. Lurrrve my rice cooker aka my everything cooker. I also made the quinoa for the burgers in it! Very hands off. Anyways, I received an email from Jenna, who is a PhD, RD helping to spread the word about the wonderful properties of oats. Check out this “Oats My Gosh” infographic she shared! Lots of oatmeal love. Jenna and I got to talking about steel cut oats over email, and she shared her perfect ratios for the rice cooker: 1 cup steel cut oats to 2.5 cups water. That’s what I set up last night!
The result was a perfectly cooked bowl of steel cut oats. HOWEVER, I realized my problem: I like my oats really porridgey! There are those who like oats very chunky (Anne P I’m looking at you!) but I like mine really creamy, so I think I’m going to try 1 cup of oats to THREE cups of water next time. Emily is the only one who has ever made them perfectly for me!
But topped with sunbutter and blueberry syrup, they were still quite yummy : )
In other news, I am hosting a Twitter party with Crest all about your #healthyobsession tomorrow night at 7pm!! I hope you’ll join me in a discussion about things we love to do that make us feel great. Maybe you’ll get some new ideas!
My healthy obsession this week has been soccer. I’ve guest played in 2 games, and literally wore out my feet last night. We lost our team game, but the game I guest played in was a good one! I sort of scored a goal. Sort of because I was the last person to touch the ball a foot from the goal before someone on their team accidentally tapped it in! I’ll take it 😉
Lunch today was leftovers from our burgers last night. I sliced a burger in half and layered it with manchego cheese, pickles, avocado, ketchup, hot sauce and greens. Sweet potato fries on top!
If you’re wondering: yes it was extremely messy to eat!
