Anmond other day, another delicious bowl of Banana Bread Oats.
I also drizzled on some SF maple syrup before I ate this. Deeelish! I’m drooling just looking at these photos!
Of course, I also had my protein side dish.
Mid-morning, while the baby was napping, I decided to try and salvage my failed almond butter from yesterday. I whisked it together with a little bit of almond milk. The result: an amazingly delicious and spreadable topping! It’s almost like an almond butter mousse. It may not have turned out the way I initially planned, but at least I was able to keep all those almonds from going to waste.
Naturally I had to incorporate my almond butter concotion into my morning snack.
It tasted great on my apple!
Lunch was the first of several english muffin sammiesthat will be appearing on the blog over the next 2 weeks. (Seriously, we have 2 1/2 packages in the freezer that need to get used up before we move.) I had chicken breast, mustard, and lettuce on a whole wheat english muffin.
My afternoon snack was perfect for a hot day like this – chocolate-banana protein smoothie.
This afternoon I got in a sweaty 45-minute ride on my Spinning bike. In honor of the late King of Pop, I rode to all Michael Jackson songs. 45 minutes was over before I knew it! I also did some ab work in front of the TV after dinner.
I had taken out some ground turkey for dinner, but knowing that the hubby gets pretty bored with the few things I make with ground turkey, I decided to get a little creative. I made Stuffed Yellow Peppers. In the mix: extra lean ground turkey, diced onions, diced yellow peppers, cooked whole wheat couscous, tomato sauce, salt and pepper.
These came out really good! It was nice to have something a little different for dinner. I tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to dinner – making the same few things over and over again.
I had a little bit up cubed cantaloupe while I was prepping dinner. Thinking about having some more now…
Have a good night! 😀
