Breakfast this morning was a nice, filling, warm bowl of oats. I can’t remember exactly when I had hot oats last but it has been a while for sure!
These weren’t just any oats, these were chocolate cherry oats. I think I’ve got a thing for chocolate and cherries right now considering the fact that my smoothie on Tuesday was also chocolate cherry
Here is what was in my bowl:
Chocolate Cherry Oats
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1 packet stevia
- 1 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- Toppings: 1/2 cup frozen cherries, spoonful of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
To make my oats bigger than they really are, I make my oats with double the water!
First, combine the oats and the water in a large bowl and microwave for 2 minutes. The next thing you want to do is add in the egg whites, banana, stevia, and cocoa powder. Microwave for another 2 minutes.
Finally, remove from the microwave, top with the PB and cherries and enjoy!
Yesterday was kind of a crazy, off-the-wall day at work. I spent the middle of my day at a student fair on the campus that the gym I work at is located on…just doing some Zumba in the crowd of people
We then took a detour to get some Starbucks on our way back to the gym after the event….the line for Starbucks was too long, but we did have the chance to take a picture at the Cosmo on Campus tour booth. No time for a mini makeover, though.
After my crazy day at work, I came home and got to work on a kitchen experiment…a veggie lasagna of sorts.
The recipe is not quite perfected, and I need to figure out how to make it look pretty…but hopefully I will be able to share something with all of you soon!
I then got into bed around 9pm, my usual bed time, but I simply wasn’t ready to sleep so I read a little bit of my SELF magazine. It didn’t take long after I opened the magazine for my eyes to feel heavy enough for me to zonk out.
And that was my day! Hope you all had a great Wednesday too!
