Dough Boy Smoothie

This morning I finally tried a dough boy smoothie from Kath Eats. It’s a mix of oatmeal, milk, chia seeds, vanilla and cinnamon. Put in the fridge overnight and then blended the next morning.

It was another attempt to change how I feel about oatmeal. . .

Unfortunately it didn’t change my mind. It was better than just plain oatmeal. I really liked it with toppings. I added Justin’s Maple Almond butter and candied pecans. But once I ate all the toppings, I didn’t want to eat any more of the oatmeal/milk mix. Maybe I need to eat more in the morning but I just can’t justify all the calories of adding toppings just to eat the oatmeal!

So.  .. more attempts will be made at oatmeal in the future – any suggestions? 

I finished off breakfast with my usual CSL. 

Lunch was a chicken pasta dish with red peppers and broccoli from the hospital cafeteria – > pretty decent. . . and their unbelievably delicious corn bread with honey butter – seriously the best ever!

Snack was a kashi bar in the car on the way home from work! Smile 

After work, Abby and headed to the basement and I did Level 1 of Shred while Abby pouted that I wasn’t playing with her!

Then, to make up for not playing (while doing my video), I took her for a walk around the neighborhood. I think she came out ahead!

Scott is out of town for training so I was on my own for dinner. I wandered around the kitchen and pantry for a while before coming up with this mix:

Don’t adjust your computer, mac and cheese really is that color orange! Winking smile

I am never sure if I should eat it with a fork or a spoon? I think I usually decide fork –> like tonight. . .

Dessert was baked apples drizzled with Justin’s Maple Almond butter and candied pecans (sound familiar? hint: same toppings from breakfast!)

Poor Abby spent most of dinner laying by the door waiting for Scott to come home. . .

I was able to get her back in the kitchen for a little help with dinner,

and then, she joined me on the couch for dinner. I may or may not have rewarded this behavior by letting her lick my mac and cheese bowl!
