This morning I am headed to my 8:30 spinning class so I had something light for breakfast…..a cookie!
I made the standard Fitnessista breakfast cookie using 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 scoop Sun Warrior, 1/2 banana, 1 scoop raw almond butter and 1 tbsp vanilla coconut milk. This morning I topped my creation with 1/3 cup 2% Fage!
The yogurt topping increased the protein and staying power of this cookie, which usually does not keep me full for very long on its own, which is why its pretty good for a pre-workout meal. It also was a really tasty addition and one I will definitely keep up in the future!
So, I’ve been getting a TON of questions and emails relating to IBS so I thought I would just address it right here since it seems like a lot of you are interested in it.
The truth is, I don’t really suffer from IBS anymore. I did when I was in middle and high school, but as I grew up I grew out of it and if I get pains now, it’s only passing pains that last maybe a minute. However, when I was in my early teen years I suffered from IBS immensely and went to all the doctors and such, looking for a cure. I know it sounds crazy, but the number one thing I have found that works when you feel like are about to have an attack is peppermint oil. Buy a vial from the health food store and put one drop on your tongue when your tummy hurts….it actually helped me every single time and was my saving grace for years. I haven’t done the old peppermint oil trick in years since I don’t really suffer anymore, but I promise you it will work!
Hope that helps, IBS sufferers! I’m off to spinning—see you in a bit!
