Thank you guys so much for your comments from my last post…I loved reading them, and you guys are so thoughtful :)
When I woke up this morning I knew I wanted to make oats before heading to the gym for Body Pump!
I had a nice ripe banana, and was craving the warm, gooey, almond butter mix! I also was DYING to try some with PB and that amazing marshmallow cream I have…s’mores oats anyone? I’ll have to do a full on bowl of S’more’s oats one day, because today I also had fresh berries for my bowl.
The main nut butter was the raw almond butter, but I had a tiny bit of the White Choc. Wonderful to try it out with the marshmallow cream. SUCH a good combo!!
Into the pot this morning went:
- 1/3 cup each: oats, water, skim milk
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 rip banana
At the end:
- drop of vanilla bean paste
- few shakes of cinnamon
- 1 sliced strawberry
- TJ’s honey crunch ‘n oats cereal
- 2 more strawberries
- more blueberries
- dollop of Almond butter
- tiny bit of White Choc. Wonderful PB
- spoon of vanilla marshmallow cream!
Enjoyed with an iced latte. I made a double shot of espresso, poured over ice until chilled. Added cold skim milk, and foamed up a little milk for the top! Perfecto.
Iced coffee drinks just oooze of SUMMER to me. Too bad it was barely 30 degrees today…meh.
After some digesting, I went to Body Pump! Always kicks my muscles into gear: felt the burn!
Sooooo, I went grocery shopping yesterday…by my self. Yeah, I tend to spend a lot longer lingering and looking around when I have no one else with me. It was nice, and I found some new things to try.
TJ’s Whole Wheat Tuscan Pane. WOW, this bread is fabulous. Soft, chewy, doughy, whole-wheat deliciousness. I took a bite, and immediately dipped my next bite in some olive oil…SO good.
This was on their New Product shelf: Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseed!
It’s like their regular roasted AB, but definitely a deeper roasted flavor, and more crunch to it with the whole flaxseeds. I really enjoyed it with a…Jazz Apple!
After hearing so much about these apples from Tina as well as Stop & Shop commercials for them!? I jumped on the Jazzy bandwagon. They are definitely good, but tastes really similar to a Gala apple to me. Not that there’s anything wrong, I was just expecting to be blown away :)
As you can see I also added a Babybel Original cheese to my snack. Not that these are anything new, but I hadn’t had them in forever and forgot how GOOD they are!! Soft, creamy, tangy! Lots of flavor.
P.S. we finally had a fire in our fireplace!!
Ok time to make dinner. I’m making Ellie’s Greek Style Stuffed Peppers.
