Woohoo! It’s Sunday, my favorite day of week Wanna know why? ‘Cause it’s Brent’s day off! Brent works Monday-Friday 2-7 and Saturdays 7-5, so it’s a relief when we get to spend all day together on Sunday. Usually he’s pretty exhausted from his week, so we just hang out together, enjoying each other’s company.
I woke up this morning and decided to have the same exact this for breakfast as yesterday! (minus the blackberries)
spinach ‘n’ eggs
These are the healthiest eggs ever! I love having eggs for breakfast, but the problem is that they don’t keep me full for very long and they have a fairly significant amount of calories.
Usually I opt for my old standby, Low-Calorie Oats:
- 1/2 cup whole wheat quick oats (I like the texture better than old-fashioned for some reason)
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp Shiloh Farms Maple Sugar (my favorite thing ever!)
- Pinch of kosher salt
- 2 packets Splenda
I got pretty hungry a little while later, so I snacked on a healthy serving of strawberries!
Zatarain’s butter & garlic rice
For lunch, I had the leftover serving of Zatarain’s Butter & Garlic Rice. It was tasty!
guiltless carrot cupcake with vanilla frosting
Aaaand I might’ve had one of these
butternut squash mac ‘n’ cheese
For dinner tonight, I whipped up an old standby, Butternut Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheese. I think it’s his favorite meal that I make! It was just as yummy as last time
I found that using a blender worked better than mashing the butternut squash with a spoon (duh!), so I updated the recipe to reflect that good idea.
Today was pretty busy… I did a lot of homework to get ahead for my trip to NYC on Tuesday (so excited!). I don’t want to get stuck having to put a good time on hold to work on a project or finish up an essay. I just want to be able to fully enjoy my vacation.
What’s your favorite healthy breakfast? Those Low-Calorie Oats probably win my heart!
