Steel Cut Oats with Nutty Mango
I used to hate mango – something grassy about the taste. But now I LOVE them!! I made steel cut oats this weekend (I usually make a batch for our rushed Wednesdays) and thought it would be fun to put a tropical fruit on top.
I heated the oats in the microwave, added about 1/3 cup of vanilla hemp milk to rehydrate along with about 1/2 a cup of diced mango. I stirred in 1 tbsp of flax and topped it all with a mixture of walnuts and sliced almonds (I couldn’t decide!). It was delicious, and my small green spoon helped me savor every bite 🙂
If there’s ever a KERF online store someday, I will manufacture green spoons like these for those of you who want one but can’t find them!
Also had mint green tea (with milk, again no sweetener). I think I’ve officially gotten to appreciate unsweet tea. That was fast! I think it just had to make the decision to do it. Healthy living is all about making good decisions, after all.
This breakfast was about 415 kcal, 10 grams fiber and 12 grams protein.
I was excited to go to the gym this morning, which is strange for a Wednesday! I had fun on the Stairmaster, a little squirrelliptical, and then the husband and I did upper body lifting on machines today.
Before I left – a piece of homemade sourdough with PB.
Chem lab (bad) but lunch at CUPPS (good!!!). The sun should be out today, which ALWAYS makes me happy. Hope you guys have a good day wherever you are in this country (world!?)!
