Today is chocolate-chip cookie day at school!!! Good thing I am going home in the morning and can bring some with me…also the maintenance man at my apartment complex said he would “gladly take some baked goods off my hands”. And, of course, I love cookies too! We are making chocolate chip and fancy butter tea cookies…sounds good. As for right now though, I am eating a big bowl of overnight swiss oatmeal with hopes it will keep me from snacking on dough in class! I am out of bananas (gasp!) so I added a little more cherries to the mix. Today I switched up the recipe a bit and soaked the oats overnight in 1/2 cup of skim milk, 10 grams of walnuts and 1 ounce of dried cherries. Then, I just added my yogurt and a little maple syrup. Really, really good! I am having a cup of Tazo Awake tea to go along with it.
For those interested in calorie counting, I thought it was interesting that all my food yesterday (including the nuts and chocolate trail mix) only added up to be 1786 calories. I do aim for higher than that on a daily basis, but my throat has been sore and I always seem to eat less on days I work because I’m running around so much.
Okay…off to class! Have a wonderful morning!
