Not the Prettiest Bowl of Oats

Today is just another go, go, go day.  I was at the gym by 5 and it was snowing – yuck!!!  Before my workout I ate a banana.  Once I was home and clean I made an interesting bowl of oat bran.  It was a tad on the ugly side – I was kind of scared to take a bite.  I mixed 1/3 cup oat bran, 1/2 cup Rice Dream Vanilla Hazelnut and 2 tbsp hemp protein.  I cooked it in the microwave until it was nice and creamy.  The color was absolutely hideous – it reminded me of a swamp. D kept asking me what was in my bowl.  I let the mix cool for a few minutes before adding a Honey Graham Z Bar and a tbsp of PB.  Believe it or not it was delicious.  I couldn’t really taste the Rice Milk but I could taste the yummy nutty hemp protein.  This was a stick to my ribs bowl of goodness. 


For lunch I stuffed a red pepper with 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 2 tbsp hummus.  I also had a piece of Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin toast with a tbsp PB and a drizzle of cranberry apple butter. 


I felt like I needed a little more so I opted for 1/2 a cup if Greek yogurt topped with 3/4 cup Cinnamon Puffins and more cranberry apple butter. 


I am on cookie baking duty today.  I am going to bake a bunch of goodies for my honey to take to work tomorrow.  I can’t let the holiday go by without making some yummies for the co-worker fan club. 

See you all later.  I promise to have pictures of all the treats.

I really need to try the CC and hummus combo - it's two of my favorite things!

Have fun baking today :)

You and VeggieGirl have me really wanting to try some hemp protein. Will have to pick some up next time I'm at Whole Foods.
