Trail Mix Oats
Trail mix seems like an obvious addition to oatmeal, and I’m sure many of you already do this, but I have just never made the connection and BOY am I glad I did today! This was GREAT!!
I bought this new kind of Bear Naked High Sierra Trail Mix at Costco this week (High Sierra Blend) and really like it. I love mixes with nuts, raisins and chocolate chips! This 100% organic mix of raw cashews, almonds, walnuts, raisins, pumpkin seeds, and dark chocolate chips. My bag said 140 kcal per 30 grams, so I’m not sure why some of the sites online are saying it has 150 and 160. The Bear Naked website has the other two new ones in its online store but not this one yet, but both of those are 140 per 30 grams, so I’m guessing the other sites are just wrong.
Anyways, I made my oatmeal today with 1.5 oz of banana (a VERY small one, split) and a serving of this on top along with some PB. It was sooo good. The chocolate melted in and the nuts were good and the seeds added another layer of crunch. Who doesn’t like dark chocolate in the morning!? I was worried the chocolate might be too sweet to feel like a healthy breakfast, but it was just the right amount. Yum!
Jasmine tea (Christmas present so I don’t know where he got it) with a little honey (waste of calories because it didn’t do anything!) and a splash of soy milk. This no sugar thing is sooooo boring.
Breakfast kal = 468. I probably wouldn’t have had so much trail mix AND PB if I hadn’t just burned 450 kcal at the gym. On a lighter day, I’d go with regular banana and perhaps a few walnuts and flax.
Pre-Workout Mini Pancakes
(A small one and the leftover tiny one) 125 kcal.
Workout was great today!! 30 minutes ET, 14 running on the treadmill to fun songs, 15 minutes free weights lifting. I lifted in front of the free weights area mirror and my muscles are definitely more defined after doing machines/pullups + dips/free weights variety for a few months now. 450 kcal burned.
Off to chem and physio then I’m home for an afternoon of Stats!!
