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.

manic monday

Just another Manic Monday!

I wanted to start Monday off on the right foot today, so I opened up my Blueberry Spirulina Smoothie that I picked up at Organic Avenue in the city.

The smoothie contained some delicious and healthy ingredients.

The smoothie was really good and I just love the fun glass bottles they come in.

Along with my smoothie, I toasted up 2 slices of Cinnamon Date Manna Bread that the company sent me to review (full post at a later date).

Spread thinly with Maple Cinnamon Almond Butter, this breakfast was awesome!

Manna Bread is so doughy and cake-like, I personally love it!  I could really taste the cinnamon in this flavor.

For lunch, I feasted on a salad that I brought home from NYC.  I stopped at Bonobos, a Vegetarian restaurant, before leaving yesterday to pick something up.

I picked up the Nori Rolls which are a mix of nuts and veggies rolled in Nori and a side salad with agave mustard viniagrette.

They were pretty good, but not awesome!  I also had a chocolate yogurt, which was awesome!

Mid-afternoon, I snacked on a Maple Pecan Boomi Bar.

This was by far my favorite flavor and I think it was because of the maple.  I love maple syrup! 🙂

Dinner was made for us by the wonderful Emily & Shawn!
