off to a decent start

July 27, 2009

I have an on again off again relationship with oatmeal. I want to like it. I know it’s super nutritious, but I just can’t get used to the texture. This morning I tried once again with 1/2 cup of oats made cooked with milk and vanilla. After cooking I mixed in fresh peaches and walnuts. It LOOKS delicious and the peaches were great… I just can’t make myself love the cooked oats!

My husband and I were out running errands and I had the munchies. Soyjoy bars were on sale at Target and I thought I would give one a try – I bought the mango coconut flavor. I’ve heard mixed reviews on these bars and wanted to try them for myself.

My opinion – not so good. The tropical flavor wasn’t bad, but the bar itself was pretty dry and almost burnt on the bottom. I don’t usually buy things like this, but sometimes I have to see what all the fuss is about.

For lunch my husband made tuna salad (chunk white tuna in water and light mayo made with olive oil). I had mine in a whole wheat tortilla with fresh-from-the-garden lettuce and tomato.

This afternoon was spent cleaning the house, it’s humid up here in NH today and I was kind of tired afterwards. Vacuuming and cleaning bathrooms can be hard work 😉 When I was done, I had one of my favorite snacks, whole grain WASA crackers with hummus. Yummy!

For dinner I threw together a potato chicken skillet with a small red potato, boneless chicken breast, onions and squash.

I am a big fan of dinners made with only one pot or pan.

Later on in the evening I whipped myself up a smoothie. I just got back from visiting one of my college roomates in North Carolina and she got me on a smoothie kick!

This one was made with pineapple sherbet (I know – not whole! but I have it in my freezer and it is soooo good. When it’s gone I plan on making something to replace it myself… any suggestions?) It was also mixed with frozen strawberries and light vanilla soy milk. It was very good, the soy milk gives it a creamy texture and the pineapple gives it a little tartness.

Back to work tomorrow. My lunch is already packed and I’m sure I’ll be planning breakfast in my head before I go to sleep.
