I didn't end up going to school today, I woke up with a stuffy nose, clogged throat, and a fuzzy feeling in my head. The weather has been up and down lately so my hay fever is acting up. I'm still not sure about tomorrow but I'm going to try and go so I don't miss too much. I've been reading up on the benefits of oat bran lately so I decided to make some thing morning...only not in the usual way. I made Blueberry Oat Bran Pancakes with 1 tbsp Dark Chocolate Dreams PB. On the side is a sliced pear and I also had a slice of ezekiel bread. The pancakes were so easy to make. I combined 1/2 cup oatbran, 1/2 cup blueberries, and 3/4 cup almond milk in a rectangular container . Then in the morning I cut it into 2 pieces and fried them in a non-stick skillet. They fell apart a little but still very delicious and nutritious.
Mmm, a thinkFruit Cashew Acai Protect bar was my snack this morning. Pretty good but nothing special.
A simple lunch was on the menu today. I made Stovetop Biscuits (you must make these now!!!), spread with hummus, and topped with spinach and tofu (sauteed in soy sauce and spices ). On the side are some baby carrots and an apple that I ate afterwards. The biscuits were so amazing, soft and crumbly on the inside, firm and crunchy on the outside. I also had another slice of ezekiel bread...which I feel guilty about. I was still hungry but I feel like I should have stopped eating after my apple.
Today was boring because I was not feeling too great but I did get some yoga in! I haven't done yoga in a long time. I always feel so busy but I'm really glad I fit it in today because I felt so much better when I was done. Not pictured is my afternoon snack of PB Puffins. 2 cups but this time I didn't feel sick, maybe it was just yesterday.
PB Puffins always leave me full for hours, I wasn't even that hungry for dinner. But I was craving a bunch of raw veggies. I made myself a nicely sized salad out of lettuce, baby spinach, 1 tiny green apple, 1/3 cup blueberries, 1 carrot, 1/4 red bell pepper, and a dijon -mayo dressing.
* EDIT TO ADD: I just made my snack and now I'm enjoying every single bite of it...
I mixed 1 1/4 cups Millet Puffs, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder, 1/3 cup almond milk, and 2 tbsp Better n' PB. This combo is insane, love it!! I also had 2 squares of dark chocolate for the heck of it. Suck on that, ed!
I hope everyone's week is going well so far. My head feels so stuffed so I'm going to go try and unclog my face haha. Hopefully this goes away soon.
