Special thanks to Jenn over at Peas and Crayons for hosting another week of WIAW
My day started at 5:30 with this awesome speedy run! It left me feeling high all morning! After the run, I did my Tank Top Tabata ! My arms were burning!
I prepped breakfast the night before and dug right into my overnight oats. Of course, I topped with my the homemade chia peanut butter because this stuff is seriously addicting! I also enjoyed my coffee, which consisted of almond milk and coffee.
After breakfast we decided to bake some cookies. Part of the reason was that I need to finish up this peanut butter without actually sitting with the jar by myself and consuming the entire thing! We made these Chia Peanut Butter Cookies , but I made some modifications.
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup spelt flour all purpose or gluten-free flour
1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 cup coconut oil butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of coconut sugar
3/4 cup peanut butter ( I use my homemade peanut butter)
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chunks or chip
Breakfast really kept me full and around 11, after Sara and I had her story hour at the library I had an apple.
Sorry, recycled picture
I had a lunch work meeting which I brought Sara too, so I didn’t really get to photograph lunch. Actually, I didn’t really eat much at the meeting. They had deli trays, which isn’t really my thing. There were some veggies and salads which I munched on but it didn’t do the trick. When we got home around 2:00 I chowed on this leftover bowl of Kabocha Squash tots from the night before! AMAZING!
Before we ran off to gymnastics class I prepped this for dinner! I found it on Pinterest last week!
Hummus chicken was a HUGE hit! The best part was that the veggies were part of the recipe and all done in one dish! I added some quinoa on the side. Awesome pinned dinner that I will for sure be making again!
Did you think I would end the day without some of these?
So good and the best part is that you really can’t feel so guilty after eating them! The recipe makeover was a huge success.
