So I took the plunge today… I tried it… yup, I tried spicy oats… after seeing them in their delicious form on Green Dog Wine’s blog, I couldn’t resist to try them and decided to stop being a scaredy cat! Well, I must say I am a HUGE fan of them ~ I really wish I tried them sooner!
For my bowl, I used:
- 1/2 c oats
- LOTS and LOTS of buffalo hot sauce
- 2 sliced american cheese
- salt & pepper to taste
I popped it all in the microwave for 2 minutes, gave it a good stir, and then added more hot sauce. It was so hot but I loved it. It was such a nice change to eat something savory for breakfast instead of something semi-sweet.
Mid-morning, I snacked on some pecan halves and an apple… I subbed the pecans in place of the almonds I’ve been having since i’m all out It was a yummy texture & I felt like it kept me more full than the almonds, but I think that might be in my head!
For lunch, I had a wide assortment of “courses”: Blueberry Chobani, two clementines, and pb&j on Arnold’s bread.
Mid-afternoon before I headed to the gym I snacked on a Pure Protein bar. I never had the chocolate chip flavor before and thought it reminded me of cookie dough, I think I’m going to stock up on this flavor next time.
At the gym I did 45 minutes of cardio on the elliptical. When I got home, I did 15 minutes of Ab Ripper X. It was tough just like before and didn’t get any easier.
For dinner, we had an easy one: Target brand Archer Farms Margarita Pizza. I topped it with a can of Italian Diced Tomatoes, garlic, pepper, and crushed red pepper. It came out awesome! It was thin crust and came out super crispy!
We also had our standard mixed green salad on the side with Asian dressing.
After dinner I had a caramel dolce sugar free Jello topped with grape nuts. I haven’t had one of these Jell-O cups in a while and used to be hooked on them
*Please say some prayers for a police officer that was killed in our area today in a traffic accident. It’s such a sad story and I’m sure his family needs lots of prayers*
