Ode to Oats
Does anyone ever have days where they can’t seem to stay awake?! That was me today. I didn’t fall asleep until after 11 last night, probably closer to 11:30 and I was up this morning and yoga’ing by 6:30am. I did 10 mins like I had planned and I yawned the whole way through lol! But, I was glad I did it afterwards.
I wanted to show you this brand of oat milk that I bought last week!! It is SO yummy!
It is not cheap but it is so worth it for a milk alternative. For you coffee drinkers out there, you know that soy milk typically curdles in coffee… well, this sure doesn’t! It’s sort of the same consistency as almond milk or rice milk. Curdle free in coffee! And it’s also great if you are worried about your consumption of soy. I’ll definitely be drinking this instead of soy milk around my time of the month. As some readers suggested, because of the hormones in soy milk that might be the reason that I am experiencing the monthly breakouts. I’ll let you know in a few weeks how it works out!
Here are the nutritionals:
And a fabulous “Ode to Oats” on the back! Love it! It kinda reminded me of Kath’s ode to oats :)
Tonight I have a spin class that I must leave for in about 40 minutes! I am so excited for this class. I’ve been looking forward to it all day!!
We had a fairly early dinner tonight, so that I could digest for my class- and that way I don’t have to eat after 8pm once I get home. I can have a mini snack & a herbal tea and be ready to read.
We made grilled turkey fajitas!!
Loads of veggies in there as well including: red & yellow peppers, red onion, 1 sliced tomato and mushrooms.
Before adding in the veg, when we were grilling the turkey breast we added some seasonings: tumeric, cumin, red pepper flakes, black pepper.
I used 1 whole grain wrap and tore it down the middle so that I could make two mini fajitas out of it. With the meat & veg mix I had some hummus and salsa as well.
I had two of ^these^ !!
With some steamed asparagus on the side, leftover from last night.
Can you believe that Steve cannot remember when/if he has ever had asparagus??
I swear I have made it for him before but I think he forgets :D I just love it! He kept calling it “green sticks.”
For all those looking for a cheap and convenient meal. There you have it!!
It’s no secret that Steve and I are on a budget these days, and this type of meal is cheap & quick… takes literally 10 minutes to make!
Gotta go digest now before spin!!
Hope you all are enjoying your Monday.
