A Little Something Sweet

I just made a comforting little dessert: hot chocolate and cinnamon toast. Really hit the spot and satisfied my sweet tooth! I made it with 6-ounces skim milk, 1 tbsp Giradhelli cocoa mix (35 calories/tbsp) and 1 slice sprouted grain bread brushed with a tiny bit of promise light and dusted with about 1/2 tsp of a mixture of cinnamon and organic cane sugar. Popped it under the broiler for a couple minutes and it turned out nice and crunchy and sweet!


yum! About 180 calories 🙂

Tomorrow is another busy day…school in the morning (more chicken!) then I have to work tomorrow night.  Then…..there’s a chance I might be driving home to Tampa after work tomorrow night (haven’t seen the boyfriend in 2 weeks!) Now its time for some cleaning, ironing of chef uniforms and going to bed to READ! I already made my breakfast for tomorrow (I always make it the night before because I’m so rushed in the morning), so I will leave you with this little overnight swiss oatmeal recipe:

Overnight Swiss Oatmeal

serves 1

1/2 cup oats

2 ounces skim milk

2 ounces water

1 ounce organic dried cherries

10 grams walnuts (about 5 whole walnuts, crumbled)

4 ounces greek nonfat yogurt

1 sliced banana

1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup

1. The night before, combine the oats, milk, water, walnuts and dried cherries in a bowl. Cover with wax paper and set in the fridge.

2. The next morning, stir the oats, add some cinnamon and mix in the yogurt and sliced banana. Top with maple syrup! yum!

OR…do I what I always tell you: PACK A LUNCH! saves $ and calories!! (just not like 5 peanut butter sandwiches though…)
