Sounds like my frustrations of people thinking “low cal, low fat, low whatever” is healthy is shared amongst us all. It’s really such a shame! I just wish there was a way to undo that mindset, and save everyone tons of struggle and ill-thoughts towards themselves…
…easier said than done. Trust me – I’ve been there, done that. The media just sucks us into thinking fake sugar is better than real, low fat is the only way to go, and everything low calorie will solve your life problems.
Newsflash: it won’t.
Not shockingly, I started my day the overnight oats way. Mingling overnight:
In the morning, vanilla chobani was incorporated for a creamy consistency all the way through 🙂
- 1 plum
- ~3/4s of a banana
- drizzle of honey
Has anyone noticed how I’ve almost been keeping my breakfasts somewhat simple lately?!
Has anyone had any Friday the 13th happenings?! I have so far been able to escape it unharmed – but the night is young, so hopefully I haven’t jinxed myself 😉
I guess maybe that’s why I opted to just have repeats when it came to meals today! Either that or, when I packed last night – I just couldn’t get mozzarella off my mind 😉
As well as the leftover carrots and hummus from Wednesday 🙂
The ingredients were wonderfully simple: just rice syrup, sesame seeds, and date syrup.
While I loved the idea of this bar, I’m not too keen on the execution. I don’t care for hard/brittley type foods that get stuck in my teeth. I think I ate about half before deciding that the itty bitty pieces left would make a lovely addition to a yogurt mess, or melting into some hot oatmeal! I am going to keep my eyes peeled for more Oskri products, though – they look to be a great lineup and I think they can be found in the U.S.!
I also enjoyed an oatmeal raisin cookie that my boss’s wife made. She must have known I was on an oatmeal raisin kick or something – I couldn’t say no. She makes cookies all the time, but I tend to pass (not a huge chocolate chip cookie fan) so it’d been a while since I’d had one. And it was funny – as delicious as it was, (she’s a great baker/cook) I found it so sweet, which is not how I remembered them. Just goes to show how our tastes change.
For instance, I never used to like corn on the cob…
Does anyone else feel rather caveman-like when gnawing on an ear of corn, or do you all cut it off politely? Just curious 🙂
I told you my eats today might look familiar! I can’t deny the fact that leftovers can be such lifesavers, and delicious. I had two leftover polenta bites, as well as a chickpea cutlet with tomato, mozzarella, and basil. And you know by now how I do my corn – butter, salt, and parmesan 🙂
And a sneak peek at some Teddie pictures, I hear you plea for?
He’d actually been getting much better at becoming very round, supple, and coming from behind – but then we had our little temper tantrum and I haven’t pushed the issue much – he’s going forward and I’ve left it at that, for now!
