Happy Monday everyone!
Hope everybody had a fun and productive weekend, or just fun and relaxing…
Well, it’s Monday, so it’s meal planning day- gwa, gwa, gwaaaa. Can you tell I don’t like this part of my job? It’s not that it’s stressful or even all that difficult; it just takes a lot of research to come up with something new that won’t taste like dogfood.
You can’t trust Pepper, she’ll eat ANYTHING…
Anywho, if I find anything of interest online, that looks tasty AND healthy, I will definitely post it for all of you to try.
Now, let’s back track a bit, shall we? I tried a little something new for breakfast (well, new for me), -applesauce cinnamon oatmeal. I’ve always loved the pre-made instant packets of flavored oatmeal, but I rarely buy that anymore, opting to make my own varieties with wholesome high fiber, less sugar ingredients. However, since today is Monday, I have almost no food left in my house due to pantry-raiding children and hungry husband. So, after some digging, I threw together the following:
- a shake of pumpkin pie spice
- a tsp of brown sugar
- approx 3/4 c of quick oats
- a half of a cinnamon applesauce cup
- and a sprinkle of salt (makes it taste soooo much better)
I added a little water and microwaved it a minute, until soft and hot. Note- next time, I won’t add the sugar, the applesauce was sweet enough on it’s own. But overall, I liked it!
Once that was settled, I decided I was in the mood for more of a full body circuit style workout today. So, I hopped on my laptop to dig up some Youtube workouts that looked promising. I stumbled upon efit30. It’s a 30 minute, total body workout for beginners, and it was tough! I connected my laptop to the TV and worked out right in my living room! Love that. I have to say, 12 minutes in, I was huffing and puffing- wow.
Disclaimer- I don’t know these guys, I wasn’t paid anything to say this- I just liked their workout!
Alrighty, well I’m off to make a list for the grocery store and finish picking up from the weekend tornados (aka, my children).
