This week is flying by!!! So I had pumpkin oats today to celebrate 🙂 As usual, they were filling and absolutely divine.
Since the husband had eggs today, I made a single portion of oats. I left out the banana for a change – just skim milk, 1/2 a cup of pumpkin, vanilla, cinnamon, a splash of egg whites (I like to do this with pumpkin to get a thicker custard consistency), 2/3 a serving of Nuts over Raspberries mix and a spoonful of PB.
It was interesting to see that the skim milk steamed and frothed much more without the banana. I couldn’t tell how much this changed the final result because the pumpkin kind of covered up the oats by themselves, but it was definitely different while cooking.
With coffee, this breakfast was about 450 kcal, 10 grams fiber and 25 grams protein.
I don’t have class this Friday, so I probably won’t go to 5:45 spinning – so I went today! I know Wednesday’s instructor is not my favorite, so I went in with the “this is my workout I need to challenge myself” attitude. I increased the resistance and really pushed myself and came out with a great workout!
Before I left, I had some leftover flatbread with PB. Mmmmmmmmmm!
I’m dining in the dining hall today!! So excited. I’m probably going to make another All-American turkey sandwich, but we’ll see what’s on the menu 🙂
Tonight we’re going out to dinner with the husband’s grandmother, so it’ll be a busy day! We’re going to a new restaurant that’s kind of wine focused: LuLu. What would you order!?
