Do I have a delicious, mouth-watering breakfast for you! Happy Tuesday!
Before we get to that, let’s recap a few things. Last night I got home from work late and was not super hungry. I opted for a small dinner and a little dessert. I topped a Morning Star Tomato and Basil Pizza Burger with my dairy-free cheese. I added some cherry tomatoes on the side.
For a little sweetness before bed, I had a Paleo Brownie.
It’s amazing how after a weekend of treats and overeating, what one day of clean eating can do. I felt like a whole new person after getting back to my routine of working out and watching what I eat. This feeling really contributes to my desire to become a dietician, because food is everything when it comes to our body!
This morning I was at the gym by 7:30am and spent 30 minutes on the elliptical. I cranked up the resistance this time so I was really sweaty by the time I got off. After a nice stretch-it was time for Leg Day! Yay for Leg Day! It was full of squats, lunges, and leg machines.
Now for the real exciting part of my morning: Cookies N’ Banana Oats.
3/4 cup oats ( I used gluten-free and dairy free oats)
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1 teaspoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons honey (brown sugar or sweetener can be used)
1 tablespoon Cookie Butter
Now this recipe requires a little prep work the night before. Mix all the ingredients together and leave overnight (refrigerated).
In the morning, add a bit more almond milk to stir everything up and top with a banana. It is cookie heaven in your mouth! I thought about adding cinnamon but did not want to take away from the delicious cookie and banana flavor! I test tasted a bit before I cut up my banana and my mouth began watering for more!
On another note- our Florida tickets are bought! So it is official, we are going. This means 62 days of clean eating and hard-core workouts.
Now off to class.
