I woke up and got my tabata on this morning! I decided I really LOVE working out early in the morning. It gets me up and moving and I feel a little more productive throughout the day.
I’m still following my THF plan but decided this morning to try something a little different but with the same ingredients. I first attempted to turn my bowl of oatmeal into pancakes, and that failed so secondly I blended all the ingredients together in a ramekin and put it in the microwave for 2 minutes.
- 3/4 C. Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1/2 C. Water
- 1/2 C. Pumpkin
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1 Whole egg
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. Nutmeg
- 2-3 drops liquid stevia
Blend all ingredients together on high in blender until batter forms
Add 1/4 tsp. of Xanthan gum (thickening agent)
Blend on low for an additional 30-45 seconds
Pour into ramekin or microwave safe bowl and cook in microwave on high for 2 minutes.
It turned out pretty dense but had the texture and flavor of pumpkin pie! I would of topped it with a little raw honey and bananas if I could of. This was pretty bomb.com.
When lunch rolled around I whipped out the good old George Forman to “George” some chicken
Grilled chicken> “Georged” chicken
I prefer actual grilled chicken off the BBQ, but the snow storm today forced me to option #2.
I lost the grease/water catcher so I had to put it on the edge of my sink…
Now I have chicken prepared for the rest of the week!
The George actually cooked my chicken in about 10 minutes and I zapped my sweet potato in the microwave in 5 – Mashed and sprinkled it with cinnamon and had about a cup of broccoli on the side.
I can’t get enough sweet potatoes lately, but zapping them in the microwave is not the #1 way to go.
Sprinkling cinnamon on them though definitely is.
I had a cup of the largest raspberries to wrap up my lunch!
You can never go wrong with driscoll’s!
Now, all of you people in warmer parts of the country can you take a minute and note, how “lucky” you are right now…
Check out the size of those snowflakes!!
Question of the Day:
Do you usually grill, crockpot, or bake chicken?
Love snow, miss snow, hate snow?
