Ouch! I’m posting and it’s only 6:27 in the morning. Haven’t done THAT in awhile! I woke up a million times last night thinking it was time to get up. Don’t you hate that? I was convinced the alarm was about to buzz. Meh.
This morning I made a new breakfast concoction. While I do love hot oatmeal, it’s rather tough to make when you are in a time crunch in the morning. Enter cold/overnight oats. They rock my world and I love them but they are an expensive love because of all the greek yogurt I go through (damn you expensive taste!). So, I thought today I would try a new kind of overnight oatmeal—cottage cheese overnight oats. Here’s what I used:
This new cereal:
It was on sale for $2.00 at Target yesterday so I thought I’d give her a whirl. I used the serving size for that, which is 1/3rd cup, and mixed it with 1/3rd cup soymilk last night.
This morning, I added a spoonful of peanut butter, 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese, half a banana, cinnamon and a drizzle of maple. Basically, I did the same thing I do when I make my standard overnight oats with yogurt but instead I used yogurt’s cheaper cousin, cottage cheese.
It was good. Not amazing like with yogurt but I will definitely make it again because its easy, filling and pretty tasty.
Since I won’t be out of class until 12:30 and probably not home until 1, I packed a couple snackies to keep me going and my brain working.
I’ve never tried this interesting new Kashi bar. I was hesitant to buy it because it only has 110 calories in it and I know something with only 110 calories in it will not fill me up for a snack. But…then I thought I could either use it for a pre-run snack or pair with other snacks that contain more protein to get me through the day. We will see how this works out. It reminds me of a nutragrain bar.
Thank you all SO VERY MUCH for all the wishes and thoughts to Wendy and the family. You guys are the best =)
Have a wonderful Monday…See you for lunch!
