Chocolate Peanut Butter Muesli
I had to try it some day!! I added about a tsp of Ghirardeli Unsweetened Cocoa powder to my muesli – along with a spoonful of PB stirred in. Decadence, health style.
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup wheatberries (you could just do 1/2 cup oats instead)
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
- 1/2 a small banana
- 1 tbsp PB
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1 tsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 tbsp chopped walnuts
It was quite good! I don’t think I’ll have this all the time, but certainly for a change every now and then. And next time I will NOT be stirring in the PB – it totally got lost in there. What a waste of good PB flavor! Go easy on the unsweet cocoa. I added a little too much to the husband’s and it got a little bitter. He had to add brown sugar to balance it out.
Still lovin’ those chewy wheatberries
I was up early for spinning this morning. I’ve missed my Friday class! I don’t know how much I’ll get there this summer since Friday will be the one day I don’t have to get up super early, but I’ll make the effort when I can 🙂 Class was good, but a little slow today.
I had some TJ’s High Fiber Fruit and Nut cereal with a bit of PB before I left. I don’t think I’ll ever eat another non-TJ’s cereal again! (Well Kashi H2H maybe 🙂 ) I love all of their kinds, and they all have great nutritional profiles and ingredient lists.
By Car, By Plane
After some quick packing, I’m driving to my small hometown of Hillsborough (2.5 hours) to have lunch at my favorite hometown restaurant, the Saratoga Grill, with my mom and best friend from high school. The Saratoga has the BEST SCONES on this side of the Atlantic!! I’m hoping to get one with lunch. They are round like biscuits, but perfectly crumbly. I’m going to see if I can get the recipe…
Tonight we’re attending a benefit dinner and auction for the Burwell School, where we had our wedding rehearsal dinner BBQ.
Then tomorrow my mom and I fly to Baltimore! I’ll be flying (and driving) home on Tuesday. Blogging might be a bit sporadic the next few days, but I promise all of my meals will be up eventually.
Until the next meal…
