Hey Friends! I am off to a really slow start on this WIAW post. Why you may ask? Because not only am I off work the rest of this week (yay for vaca!) but I am still trying to get my new apartment all set up!
Long story short: I actually put this together myself! (the white shelves)
I am proud of myself because I am anything but handy. Go me.
Ok now let’s talk food?
My meals really haven’t changed much from like ever, but going to give you some of my now fall favorite’s! Some awesome food finds at Target! Un-pictured is Kodiak Cakes – who loves these? Can’t wait to try these out!
I am going to start popping my OWN popcorn. I have seen on pinterest that you can do it in a brown paper bag. Too bad I already forgot to buy those, ha. I also found lots of spices for Fall – apple pie spice, pumpkin spice, and nugmet. These 3 really make cereal, oatmeal, coffee, iced coffee, pancakes, cakes, cookies, etc. all taste that much better. That 100% you see is for TOTAL cereal. I know, it’s processed, but I like it.
I also bought almost every single kind of Mrs. Dash – can’t get enough of this stuff, either.
Since I am home from work this week, I can be a bit more creative with meals. I started off with a different version of my “oatbran” – added pumpkin! YUM! I forgot how much I love this!
In the mix: 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 tbsp chia seeds, huge spoon of crunchy PB, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, stevia, and a lot of pumpkin (didn’t measure). So-freakin-good.
Obsessed with my NINJA blender. I put 6 huge ice cubs in my protein shake this morning, and it blended every-single-one. My stupid Magic Bullet could barely blend 1/2 of an ice cube. Lame.
In the mix: 1 cup water, 1 cup decaf coffee, almond milk (didn’t measure), 6 ice cubs, 1 scoop sun warrior, 2 spoonfuls of cocoa powder, vanilla liquid stevia, and coffee extract. So good and so filling!
I made one successfully and followed Foodie Fiasco’s recipe to a T, except used peanut flour instead of the coconut flour. It was good! Just happy it came out looking like a cake and had some flavor other than bland baking powder. Go me again!
Ok folks, keeping this light n sweet for today. As long as I do the above: drink my protein shake first thing in the AM, eat a good oatbran-ish breakfast, spice my food up real good, and try new recipe’s, I most certainly “Fall into good habits” – kind of hard not to by doing all of these things. I am one happy chica.
And I love my apartment. Random, I know.
I have an awesome stuffed pepper’s recipe coming your way tomorrow, as well as some fun Zumba thangs. Some students have been wearing heart rate monitors – and let’s just say, you will be SHOCKED at their calorie burns!
