After a fun Friday night, recap later today, we slept in a little bit and decided on a special brunch!  I wanted pancakes and Brady didn’t care so that’s what it was!  He didn’t know how much fiber he was going to get.  🙂

Loaf of Heaven

Today was another busy day!  We had a staff meeting after school and then we went to see He’s Just Not That Into You with two of my girlfriends!  I highly recommend it!  I want to see it again.

For dinner I had popcorn (94%ff kettle corn which I ate on the way)  and then when I got home, I had a almond butter and pear sandwich.  It hit the spot.  Last night, I did make time for some baking.

Banana Pear Oat Bread

  • 1 c. oatmeal
  • 1/2 c. oat (ground in the food processor)
  • 1/2 c. whole wheat flour
  • 3 smashed bananas
  • 1/2 c. mini chocolate chips
  • 1 egg white
  • 3/4 c. pear cut into cubes

Bake at 350 for 25 minutes

I woke up this morning and did a quick 30 minute weight circuit at home.  It zapped 200 calories and felt great!  Brady and I are planning on going to the gym later this afternoon for some cardio.

After my mini workout, I didn’t know what I wanted.  Brady made himself 2 eggs with mini whole wheat pitas and some fresh tomato.  It looked great to me, but I wanted something sweet.  I decided on pancakes!  Here is what I came up with!

Oatmeal Banana Pancakes

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 c. oats
  • 1 banana smashed
  • 1 tsp. peanut butter

Mix all ingredients together and pour into a hot frying pan.  Cook throughly on both sides.  Serve with blueberries, peaches and a little extra peanut butter!


SOO GOOD!  I can’t wait to make these again!

New Blog Feature: Oatmeal Bowl of the Week!

We all eat oats each and (almost) every day so I don’t find it necessary to post my bowl each day – even though I would like to, there just isn’t time!! So I am going to pick one bowl of the week to post from now on!

This week’s bowl included:

  • oats
  • wheat berries (precooked)
  • banana
  • water
  • ground flax

After the above have cooked add pears and pb!

Tonight was filled with visiting neighbors, wrapping presents and making a delicious dinner!

Finger Lickin Healthy Chicken (Brady made up the name, hehe)

  • 1/2 oats
  • 1/4 sliced almonds
  • 1/2 c. bread crumbs
  • 1/3 c. spicy mustard
  • 1/4 c. milk

Trim the fat off a few pieces of organic natural chicken. Cut chicken into strips, dip strips into mustard/milk mixture then dip chicken into oat/almond/bread crumb mixture. Bake at 400 for 30 min. or until crunchy.
*Next time I would add some more spices to the mix to give them a little more flavor. 🙂
Before the Oven:
After being baked:
We also enjoyed some broccoli, brown rice and egg plant. Later on I had some yogurt mixed with PB and a pear. Yum!

I love peaches!  This morning I heated them in my oatmeal with my 1/2 banana.  It was so sweet and delicious!  I mixed the usual: 1/3 c. oats, 1/4 c. wheat and oat bran with the fruit.  I microwaved it all for 1 min. and added extra berries.  I ate it at school, otherwise I would have added a little yogurt.

Lunch was leftovers, so nothing too exciting there!  I also ate 1/2 pure protein bar around 4pm, on the way home from school.  It held me over until dinner around 7pm.

Back on Track

It felt great to start the morning off with a run!  Katie (who just got engaged last night, yay!!!!) and I ran about 4-4.5 miles.  She had lots of energy from her great news and I had lots of energy because I haven’t run in a few days.  We were happy to get it out of the way while is was cool out this morning.

After the run, I was craving oatmeal!  I made a typical bowl with the following:

  • 1/4 c. oats
  • 1/4 c. oat bran
  • 1/4 c. wheat bran
  • 1/2 banana
  • water
  • vanilla and salt
  • blueberries and strawberries

It tasted SO good, and it was pretty too!

Already 2pm?

How is already 2:00pm?  This day has flown by.  I had a meeting at school that lasted 3 1/2 hours, so that was the majority of the day.  Now on to my hurry -up-and-do-before-school-starts list.  Unfortunately it is growing instead of shrinking!

On to the food:

Breakfast:  oatmeal with peaches, blueberries and strawberries.

I ate that on the way, but it was a little bit dry….bummer.

I didn’t pack a lunch because I was planning on meeting Brady but that didn’t work out because our meeting went longer than I had thought so I just came home and made tuna and heated up leftover veggies.

Mayoless Tuna Salad

  • 1/2 can of white albacore tuna (costco has it for a good deal)
  • 2 T hummus
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  • DILL relish 🙂 yum!
  • salt/pepper/old bay seasoning

I ate it on celery.  It was fresh, clean and filling!

I added goat cheese and fresh tomatoes for more flavor!

Today’s oatmeal was pretty normal with oats, oat bran, wheat bran, flax, banana, vanilla, water, and a tiny bit of salt.  I then added some blueberries and strawberries!  I was starving for this breakfast after a morning run and a shower.  I ate it in the car on the way to school:

This morning I got up and got ready for school while Brady was getting ready for work.  It really felt like summer is over.   I had a big bowl of oatmeal which should keep me full for long time while I work on my room!  We ate our breakfast while watching handball.  What a crazy sport!?

Peachy Banana Oatmeal

I tried cutting up my peach and mixing it into the banana oatmeal before microwaving it to see if it would melt like the banana.  It did and it tasted great – sweet and fresh, kind of like Quaker Peaches & Cream but completely nautral and better for you!

  • – 1/3c. oats
  • – 1/4 c. wheat bran
  • – 1/4 c. oat bran
  • – 1 T. ground flax
  • – 1/3 banana sliced
  • – 1/2 peach sliced
  • – vanilla and salt and water
  • – fresh strawberries (added after the mircowave)

So good!

Have a great Monday!
