Gooooood morning and Happy Sunday (and day off for me!).
Last week was killer but THIS week I am counting down every hour because Ryan comes on Friday for the weekend and I am so excited to finally see him!! I have our weekend totally planned out with a late dinner at home with Betty and Ted (gourmet meal prepared!) on Friday night when he gets in, and then on Saturday we are planning on playing golf at the club’s super amazing golf course (I can play for free since I work there!) and then going out for drinks and dinner. I can’t wait!
This morning I decided to try something new and different for breakfast….something I have been reading about for probably the last 6 months but had never tried………a Fitnessista Breakfast Cookie!
Now, I did everything exactly like Gina said to do in her “how-to” post except I used a whole banana instead of a half. The other ingredients were: 1/3 cup oats, 2 tbsp silk, 1/2 scoop chocolate protein, and 1 tbsp almond butter. I mashed it all together late last night, just as her post demonstrated and woke up this morning to a delish treat!
Mine didn’t “harden” really though and I think that’s because I used a whole banana and Gina just uses a half. The edges of the “cookie” did sort of though, and turned wonderfully chewy! I will definitely make this again but I think next time I will use 1/2 cup oats instead of 1/3 cup because I’m still sort of hungry right now…….hopefully the coffee will do the trick and I’ll have a snack before church.
So, thanks Gina, for the new addition to my breakfast treats! I am going to make this again next week (or sooner!). You all should really try one yourself!! 🙂
On a not-so-good note, I slept pretty badly last night! I couldn’t fall asleep initially and then I couldn’t stay asleep…all because the burn on my hand was THROBBING! On Friday, I burned my hand on the oven door. Ouch. Then yesterday, I smacked the burn back on the oven door in a fit of busyness. Quadruple ouch. The burn opened up and now I have this horrible raw wound! I have to go find some super neosporin today because I’m in a lot of pain!
Plan for the day includes:
- Grocery shop
- Bible study
……..And it’s chilly outside!!!!!!!
