Peas and Crayons
Breakfast at work, 8:30 am:

The cold weather meant the return of stove-top voluminous oats. It made about 2.5 cups!

Peanut Butter Banana Oatbran

  • 1/3 cup Trader Joes Oat Bran
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 banana, sliced thin & whipped in after most of the water was absorbed
  • 5 drops vanilla stevia
  • 1/4 cup plain Chobani stirred in after cooking
  • drizzle of cashew butter on top

Kept me full for hours!

Lunch, at work, 12:30:

Tuna salad – with plain Chobani, green & yellow peppers, relish and Baybel light cheese on sandwich thin

On the side – lots of Vitamin A!  Carrots, red & orange bell peppers, and roasted red pepper hummus.

PM snack, 4:00:

Not just cashew butter – I put a little bit on an apple! :)

White bean hummus, wings for the boys, and goat cheese artichoke fritters.

The last time I was at Houlihan’s was for my first blogger meetup!  When are we doing that again, ladies?!
