Hello my blog friends. I hope your day is going well. The sun is shining here in good old Massachusetts so all is good.
This morning I ran a glorious 11 miles and I didn’t even need to wear a hat. I think it was like 40 degrees – watch out heat wave.
When I got home I immediately needed to make breakfast – we needed to be out the door by 8:30. I whipped up a large bowl of oatmeal – 3/4 cup oats cooked with water, 1/2 a banana and a Banilla YoKids yogurt.
Yes I am scrubalicious in this picture – cut me some slack I just ran 11 miles.
I made a banana sandwich with the other 1/2 of my banana – it is the famous PB & B.
The lovely people at Better Whey sent me three of their yogurts to try. I packed the Peach Mango flavor to have as a snack after D’s karate class. I love the texture of this yogurt. It was not quite as thick as Greek style but close. Also this flavor was tangy and not overly sweet. You all know how much I love the tanginess of plain yogurt so I was pleasantly surprised by this one which is a sweetened yogurt. It has less sugar than regular sweetened yogurts and a whopping 15 grams of protein. I would can not wait to try the other flavors – this stuff is “Whey Good”.
We made our usual Border’s stop on the way home from karate. I could spend hours in the book store – actually I have. We also had to stop at Target for a few necessities.
Lunch was made as soon as I got home. I made a salad – lettuce, broccoli slaw, red pepper and salsa. I melted a piece of swiss cheese and a piece of provolone cheese on gluten free bread. I also had a few Rice Crisps.
I ended lunch with 2 Medjool dates stuffed with almond butter. As you can see I am developing as addiction to these beasties and I am not looking so sweaty – I managed to clean up before leaving the house this morning. No make-up today – I am going all natural which is how I am most of the time.
Now I must tend to my house and piles of laundry sitting in front of the washing machine. I hope you have an awesome day. See you later.
