I slept great last night! 😀 I stayed up to watch Lost, so I slept in until 6:15 this morning. (Man, I remember the days when “sleeping in” was noon!) I slept soundly until my alarm went off and easily got out of bed. I feel like I haven’t had a morning like this in weeks!
My breakfast was a delightful bowl of stovetop oats. Guys, I think I am a true convert! The stovetop method really doesn’t take that much longer to make, and the final product is oat perfection!
In the mix:
- 1/2 cup dry oats
- 3/4 cup vanilla hemp milk
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tbsp hemp protein
- 1 tbsp raisins
- Scoop of peanut butter
While I find oatmeal to be the best, most filling, long-lasting breakfast, I want to change-up my morning meal a little bit. Besides oats, what breakfasts fill you up and hold off your hunger until lunchtime?
I can’t decide which I like better– posting lunch at the end of the day with dinner or posting a “lunch preview” with breakfast?
Today’s lunch is leftover pizza from last night, cottage cheese with fresh blueberries, and a lemon-flavored Larabar, which is my new fav! (I need to update my rankings!)
