At it Again

I made it out to the gym this morning before the next snow fall – yes, it is at it again already.  It was so nice to run 7 miles even though I was stuck to the treadmill.  I totally needed that runners high.

Before my workout I had to eat breakfast because I woke up starving.  I made a messy mix of about 2 1/2 tbsp oat bran, 1/2 cup Greek yogurt, a teeny banana, 1/4 cup PB Puffins, 1/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins and a tbsp PB.


On my way home from the gym I stopped at the store to pick up a few items because I probably will not want to venture out later.  I hooked myself up with goodies to make more Pretzel Kisses and Peanut Butter cookies.  I mine as well do something productive while I am stuck in the house.  I had a little snackie when I got home – a golden delicious apple and a light mozzarella string cheese stick.


For lunch I stuffed a red pepper with left over Raw Mac & Cheese.  This “cheese” sauce is amazing – I can not even get over how darn tasty it is.  I added 1/2 cup cottage cheese to the bowl to up the protein.  The combination of the flavors and textures in this bowl were heaven.  Heather you have brought such joy to my tummy – thank you again. 


I also had 2 pieces of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin toast with a tbsp PB and a tbsp Polaner Blueberry All Fruit spread.


I stumbled upon this little tid bit of info the other day and thought you might find it interesting.  With all the baking that goes on around the holidays you might find yourself in a situation where you might have to improvise ingredients.  It is nice to know that you can use whipped butter in a pinch. 

Have a great afternoon.
