Breakfast/ Lunch


Isn’t it fun how it’s already humpday?! Feels good. Last night in school we did a lot but I don’t have photos because nothing is considered finished until tonight. We made vanilla cream bavarians, fruit bavarians (we used black current) and a baked apple charlotte. I’ll take pictures tonight when we unmold the bavarians and the charlotte. Hopefully it will turn out well!

Unfortunately I didn’t go to the gym this morning because I slept horrible last night. I just couldn’t fall asleep for the life of me! I got home at a reasonable time, 11:15, took a shower and got to bed around 11:30 or so but just laid awake until 1:30. Then, Dexter had me up at 5:30. I still woke up at my normal time of 7:00 but I just didn’t have the strength to go to the gym. Boo. Oh well! I decided to make some creamy stovestop oatmeal instead using a banana, 1/3 cup oats, 1/4 cup wheatberries, maple syrup and peanut butter. I rarely make oatmeal on the stove anymore just because I don’t have enough time but this reminded me just how delicious it is when you take the time to do it!


For lunch today I packed a yummy veggie-stuffed hummus pita. I stuffed a Touflin multigrain pita (my fav!) with 1/4 cup hummus, half of a red bell pepper, some spinach and cucumber slices. Alongside it I packed a juicy red pear and some peanut butter pretzels for a snack.



Yay for humpday! Have a good one everyone!

    Hope you get a good night’s rest. Sleepless nights are the worse! I am trying that rss thing, thanks for letting me know, it seems great so far!

    Are you spelling that pita brand correctly? I tried to look it up becuase the pita I like is no longer being distributed to my grocery, but the only thing that popped up when I typed the name in was your website?

    I hope you can get some sleep tonight! I hate bad nights w/out sleep. I just kept waking up all night and then had a nightmare about gangsters attacking my friends and the boyfriend. haha

    Oatmeal on the stove is the best! I try to make 2 servings’ worth at night to take to work the next day.

    Sorry about the lousy sleep 🙁 Hope your day gets better!

    I’m not Jenna, but I can tell you that the pita brand is actually named Toufayan (and they’re good!) They’re available all over FL, because they are made here, but I’m not sure about distribution elsewhere.

    my two cats had me up at 5:30 this morning too. i like that it’s getting light out earlier now, but it’s definitely costing me some sleep!

    Sorry you had a bad night’s sleep, I’m sure tonight will make up for it. Since my cat is at my parents’ house I can say I don’t miss the random hour wake up calls and feet attacks.

    Ooh not being able to sleep is one of the WORST feelings ever! 🙁 Totally messes everything up! Hope tonight will be better for you

    Hahah~I rarely cook my oatmeal on a stove either ’cause I just get tired of waiting for the water to boil! But I agree–the oatmeal is WARMER and creamier when you take the time!

    Jenna what brand and where did you get those pb pretzels? Are they more filling? I never find pretzles or even pb and banana filling as a snack.

    These pretzels are just unsalted all natural peanut butter filled pretzels by a brand called “pure taste” I believe? I found them at whole foods and have never seen them anywhere else. They do fill me up because of the peanut butter…the reason they might not fill you up (or a banana with pb for that matter) is because you might not be using enough peanut butter. For a snack I usually use a tbsp of peanut butter and combined with a fruit or a whole grain I find it very filling. A thin smear though would not be filling. I like peanut butter so much I sometimes eat if off the spoon…haha!
