Also, make this. It is a Poached pear trifle. It is to die for.
|I'll get you the recipe. Made by my momma.|
This morning, I woke up and all I was craving was something a little more nutrionally sound than all the goodies I had this weekend. I wanted oats, but not the regular peanut butter oats I make. Something a little lighter.
1/2 Cup Oats
3 Dried Apricots, chopped
1/2 Cup Almond Milk
I microwaved the oats for 3 minutes. They were yummy. I felt great after eating them and not weighed down at all. Instead of adding any honey or maple syrup, the dried apricots plumped up and sweetened the oats. I definitely don't think I need more sugar :)
The almond milk made the oats really creamy without adding many calories or added sugar. Have you tried it?
Andrew made himself a breakfast that I must say needs documentation. Here is his plate piled high with an onion and cheese omelet, whole-grain quaker oat pancakes, and turkey bacon.
That boy can eat- but I must say he only ate one of the pancakes.
This week, I am going to focus on eating healthy, whole, natural foods and avoid sugar a wee bit. My body just seems off when I don't eat healthy - especially after this holiday weekend.
