Today all my food has had one theme: breakfast! The most important meal of the day and personally my favorite.
First off I got a ton of sleep last night. Didn’t wake up until 9 am (after being able to fall back asleep after feeding the babies). I guess my body really needed rest!
I considered making a bowl of oatmeal, but being lazy (needed to wash my oatmeal pot) and pretty hungry I opted for a quick crunchy peanut butter, orange marmalade, ground flax, and banana on whole wheat toast. Enjoyed with some homemade iced coffee of course. ^_^
Determined to make up for all the lost workout time from last week, I headed to the gym and got in a solid 45 minutes of stationary hill biking. I’m re-reading the third Hunger Games book, Mockingjay, at the moment so the time just flew by.
I wasn’t hungry for lunch until after 1pm and then I made this amazing omelet! Two eggs mixed with fresh dill and filled with steamed spinach, a little diced sundried tomato, two strips of Morningstar Farms Veggie Bacon Strips, and a sprinkle of cheddar. Turns out the “bacon” strips are actually delicious as long as you fry them so they are crunchy! I’m loving them now.
Plus a Orange Vanilla Chobani Champion for even more protein. ❤
For dinner there was even more breakfast! A long time ago my mother gave me a box of Hodgson Mill Multigrain Buttermilk Pancake Mix with Milled Flaxseed and Soy and I am now finally getting around to using it up. If I had known it was a mix that you had to add more than just water to I’d probably have turned it down but since I have it I mixed in eggs, milk, coconut oil, and blueberries.
I ate two large ones with almond butter and a drizzle of maple syrup alongside two more strips of “bacon”. I’m seriously loving this fake meat now which is funny since I hated it so much before.
Vinni has been a real baby today. He woke his daddy up very loudly and rudely and has been sulking all day since he was yelled at. Luckily, they’ve finally made up!
And now for the one year anniversary giveaway winner!!
Whit, you lucky dog, you’ve won! I’ll be notifying the winner and getting out the goodie bag shortly this week. Thank you everyone who entered. I really appreciate all my readers and wish I could send each and every one of you a gift. If I ever win the lotto, I promise you I will. ~.^
Chase and I are feeling really worn out tonight (no clue why!) so we’re bypassing running and climbing in bed for some family time watching Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. We’ll probably snack on popcorn and dark chocolate!
Have a great weekend everyone!
