oats and tuna melts

This morning, I was all about oatmeal.  It sure doesn’t feel like fall in Boston, but it is September!

Simple Rolled Oats

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup milk (any kind will do)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt

Yum, I love the addition of cinnamon and vanilla in the oats.  They are delicious.

Check out the chia seeds in there too!  You can’t taste them, but they pack quite the nutritious punch.

Topped with a drizzle of Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, cinnamon crispies and dried blueberries!!

Yummy!

The thing I really love about oatmeal, is how it keeps me full for hours, but doesn’t make me feel super full.  Delicious!

Lunch was kind of boring.

Leftover pasta from a few nights ago.  I cooked whole wheat pasta, then tossed it with 1/2 jar of Trader Joe’s marinara sauce and some homemade pesto that I defrosted from the freezer.  All mixed together, it was great.

I also snacked on a banana and yogurt mid-afternoon.

We kept it simple for dinner with tuna melts and salad!

1 can of tuna mixed with a little yogurt, mustard and celery seed.  Served on 2 slices of whole grain seeded bread stacked with 1/4 sliced avocado and colby jack cheese.

Our salad was simple with greens, radishes, and rosemary pecans and cranberries.  All tossed in a honey/olive oil dressing.

A simple, but terrific weeknight dinner.
