Switching It Up

December 10, 2010

I wasn’t feeling oats yesterday morning.  Shocking, I know.

I wanted to try something new, plus I’ve been wanting to try these two things for A WHILE.

First, grilled bananas.

I left them on a little longer than I meant to and thought they were burnt but it turns out those “burnt” sections tasted like caramelized brown sugar and I’m definitely okay with that!

Next up, Ashley’s vegan pumpkin French toast.  I momentarily freaked when I first saw this recipe because  it looked so so good but I almost always wake up craving oats and when that craving comes it must be satisfied.

When said craving didn’t surface this morning I knew it was time.

Topped with grilled banana slices.  OH.MY.GOODNESS.

THIS WAS SO GOOD!!

I also drizzled on 1/2T of maple syrup for some sweetness.  I go through syrup wayyy to fast.

If I hadn’t used the last 1.5 English muffins I would have repeated this breakfast this morning. 😦

Lunch was leftover potato soup made Wednesday night by Joey.

I wasn’t there for the soup making process but I’m pretty sure you blend most of the potatoes up into the soup then add a few un-blended chunks.  I thought it was the perfect blend (no pun intended) of creamy and chunky.

Some unpictured carrots accompanied the soup.  Does anyone else see a smiling face in this bowl?

I ate lunch much earlier than I normally do on Thursdays and I’m usually already pushing it between lunch and dinner (I’m always STARVING) so I grabbed a snack from the little cafe/store inside the student center.

I’ve never heard of Mrs. May’s Trio before but this bar had a solid ingredient list — 3 nuts, 3 fruits, 3 seeds, just like it says — so I was sold.

I turned out to be a lot crunchier/harder than I’d expected but as it turned out that was one of my favorite parts about the bar.  The flavors were great!

One last thing, I completed day 2 of week 4 on my arms and abs challenge — 70 something push ups and 172 sit ups I believe.  It’s getting so hard!

Hope you have a wonderful Friday 🙂

    It’s so rare that I don’t have a craving for oats in the morning. Oats are just so darn tasty. 🙂 I also use those rare occasions I’m not hankering some oatmeal to try an “experimental breakfast.” Glad yours was a success!

    P.S. I’m strangely happy that I could incorporate the word ‘hankering’ into this comment. I forgot how awesome a word it is. Lol!
