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!
Dinner, Houlihan’s, 7pm:
Out to dinner with the husband and my family for a big celebration…
My brother got accepted to Carnegie Mellon University (aka total smartypants college). We’re all so proud of him and he really deserves it!
Appetizers to share:
White bean hummus, wings for the boys, and goat cheese artichoke fritters.
Yes, fried goat cheese. &$%*($! That good.
Entree: Barbeque salmon salad, dressing on the side. Delish!
The last time I was at Houlihan’s was for my first blogger meetup! When are we doing that again, ladies?!
Dessert: Protein thin mint!
