So, I totally stink at taking pictures of everything I eat in a day. I’ve tried. Many, many times. But I always forget something. Which has led to many, many skipped What I Ate Wednesdays. So, today, for my participation in Peas and Crayons’ meme, I will be putting some of these photos to use. Here is What I’ve Been Eating: Breakfast Edition.
Apple Pie Egg White Oatmeal
1/2 C oats
1 C water
1/2 C egg whites
dash of apple pie spice
Cook the oatmeal with just the water in the microwave for 1:30. Then, stir in the egg whites and cook for an add’l 2:30 or so. Slice the apple and cut into pieces, sprinkle with apple pie spice. Cook the apple separately in the microwave for 1:30 or so (I just throw it in with the cooking oatmeal because my microwave is big enough). Stir cooked apple into cooked egg white oatmeal. Top with sugar-free syrup (optional, but delicious!).
Green Cake Batter Smoothie
based off of this recipe by Stuft Mama
1 frozen banana
2 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/3 C Greek yogurt
1 C milk of choice
1 handful spinach
1 sprinkle of sugar-free vanilla pudding powder
1 splash butter extract
1 splash vanilla extract
1 sprinkle of sweetener
handful or two of ice
based off this recipe, but drop blueberries into the pancakes as they’re cooking
Still one of my all-time favorites. You can find the recipe here. But I also add a handful of spinach most days.
Cinnamon Toast Pita Pastries
Trader Joe’s mini whole wheat pitas
Mix up some sweetener and cinnamon. Spread a little butter on your pitas. Roll the pitas in the cinnamon mixture. Pop into the toaster oven for a minute or two. The result will be a warm, sweet, pastry-like treat. Yum!
