Cranberry sauce + oats = better than I could have imagined!
We had trouble falling asleep last night because the space heater made the room waaaaay too hot! And THEN I woke up around 4am, freezing, and turned the heater on, and then had trouble going back to sleep. I was counting the minutes in sets of 10 until the alarm went off at 5am. Despite not sleeping well, I was up, so to the gym we went (by car today 🙁 ). I took it easy there with 26 minutes on the ET plus 10 on the Stairmaster (which was full when I got there). It wasn’t a very intense day, although I went through all the motions. Then the husband and I did some upper body lifting: pull-ups, dips, overhead tricep press, deltoid lift up, shoulder press, chest press.
Then we came home to make this wonderful bowl of oats! I haven’t ever added cranberry sauce before in fear that it would be too tart and/or acidic and ruin the creaminess of the oats. But today I decided to heat it up (the key!) and just put it on top as to not disturb the oat consistency underneath. This was awesome!!
I hear Cranberries are this week’s Blogger Secret Ingredient over at The Fitnessista and I’d like to participate but can someone explain what I need to do!? I’m not sure the details of the weekly contest and how it works! I’m going to use them in my lunch today too – am I allowed two entries?
- 1/3 cup Windy Hill flax oats, 2% milk, water
- Salt pinch
- 1/2 large banana
- 2 tbsp cottage cheese (finished a container), stirred in at end
- 1/3 cup-ish cranberry sauce, heated in the microwave in another bowl
- 1 tbsp wheat germ
- Wheatberries on top
- Drizzle maple syrup
I was supposed to be a tea day, but since I didn’t sleep well I chose coffee.
We’re expecting rain 😥 The green blob is moving closer and closer. After I go to Organic and back, I should have the rest of the day to study (and eat beans!) I am hoping to vote today, and go to a beer tasting the husband is doing if he does indeed do it, but both of those are up in the air depending on timing and weather.
Check me out on the world wide web!
