acting up

Well, my computer has been acting up and I haven’t been able to upload my photos!  I finally got it to work, so I’ll leave you with a little recap of my last few eats from yesterday and today.

Yesterday, I woke up to a chill in the air.  But, I knew that I wanted to get a little run in since it has been over a week since my last run.  After walking this guy for 45 minutes (3 miles),

I headed out on a nice, relaxing 3 mile run.  It took me about 30 minutes to complete my run.  I ran without lookingat my watch and just enjoying my surroundings.  I loved it!

After my run, I was more than ready for breakfast.  So, I made some Steel-Oats for Two.

They take about 30 minutes to cook, but it is so worth it.  They taste so much better than the rolled oats I normally eat.  I think I will try to start cooking these in my slow cooker overnight!

I cooked 1/2 cup of steel cut oats for two (1/4 cup is a serving size) with 2 tbsp of ground flaxmeal.  Once the oats only had about 4-5 minutes of cooking time left, I whipped in 1 chopped banana.  Then, topped the oats with granola and nut butter (peanut butter for Brant, almond butter for me).

Lunch was at the mall after we did some shopping – Au Bon Pain Meditteranean Wrap.

And, some dried Baby Pineapple that was sent to me by Megafruit to review – YUM!

I love dried fruit, especially unsweetened, so I knew that I would love this.  They just dry the fruit – no sugars added.  It is sweet enough on it’s own and so delicious.  I also received Mangosteen and Lychee, which I cannot wait to try!  (I will do a full review later.)

[Fast forward to this morning.]

It was another cool morning, so I was looking forward to my oatmeal again.  However, I had some Yogurt that needed to be used up, so I mixed up a Yogurt Bowl.

My yogurt bowl contained:

  • 1/2 cup Kashi Puffs
  • 1/4 cup Brown Rice Crisps
  • 1/4 cup Uncle Sam’s
  • 1/4 cup Museli (with dried cherries)
  • 1 cup Organic Valley Vanilla Drinkable Yogurt

With fruit served on the side – watermelon, pineapple and canteloupe.

I also had some coffee/hot cocoa (a mocha!) to take the chill off.

I went home for lunch to walk this guy again.

So, I got to eat at home today – fun!  I heated up a bowl of leftover Southwestern Quinoa Salad and a Cottage Cheese Muffin.

Along with the rest of the fruit that I didn’t finish this morning.

I also grabbed a few pieces of dark chocolate before heading back to work.

Have a great Monday!
