PB & J Oats with a side of cantaloupe cubes.
A Note about Oats: I recently switched from flavored instant oatmeal packets to a can of quick-cooking plain oats. I did this in order to control the sugar, additives and other stuff that goes into oatmeal. I make these in the microwave with water, then stir in some plain non-fat yogurt. Then I flavor with about 1 tsp vanilla and about 1-2 tsp brown sugar. Then I add toppings! I've found that this doesn't add a lot of time to my morning routine and I feel better about what I'm eating.
I was making oatmeal with 1/2 C dried oats, but that was a lot of food, so this morning I decreased it to 1/4 C dried oats. I was pretty happy with how much I ate and still felt full! I sprinkled on some granola and some peanut butter and some rasperry preserves. So great! Classic flavors.
It's going to be a PB&J day, because that's what I packed for lunch, along with some fruit and baby carrots. Tonight, I'm planning a new meal, so stay tuned.
Hope you have a great day! Almost the weekend...
