Thanks for all your sweet comments about my UNC—Chapel Hill acceptance! I’m so excited and I really appreciate everyone’s support :) I’ll keep you updated as I hear from other schools and make my decision… gah!!
Anyway, I thought I’d mix it up and do a breakfast post today, since I know you’re all just dying to see my breakfasts. ;)
Kinda looks like vom, but it sure didn’t taste like it. Not that I regularly eat vom or anything. … Anyway…
Oatmeal. Yay! I’ve been trying to mix up my breakfasts more because breakfast is the one meal that I can get in a rut and eat the same. thing. every. single. day. Usually cereal (Kashi Heart to Heart mixed with Kashi Honey Sunshine, drowned in skim milk and topped with banana and berries) is the main culprit. I just love cereal… what can I say :)
So today I made a new favorite combination — Blueberry Banana Chia Cottage Cheese Oats! That’s a mouthful. Literally.
Basically, it was a base of my Perfect [Microwaved] Banana Oatmeal, which I then topped with fresh blueberries, 1/3 C of 1% cottage cheese, and 1 Tbsp of chia seeds. Have you tried these yet? They are fun and a nutritional powerhouse. :)
And then I mixed it all up :)
Mmmm… I’d forgotten how much I like cottage cheese in oats. It goes SO well with the sweet banana and blueberries!
This was also nice and warm, which is good because my heat is broken. :( It started getting really cold over the weekend when the girls were here visiting, and finally Monday I realized… duh… the heat is broken. They came and fixed it yesterday morning, but apparently the outside pump is covered in ice and needs to defrost, which takes forever?? Bust. Needless to say, after I got home from work and ate dinner, the rest of the night was spent hiding under my covers in sweatpants, a long sleeved shirt, a sweatshirt, and wool socks, while watching trashy MTV shows on my (warm) laptop :) Sometimes you just need a night off!
I’m off to the gym (it’s treadmill time… stupid snow) and then I’ll be home studying for the rest of the afternoon — we have our first Anatomy & Physiology lab test today. Yikes!
Have a good one :)
What’s your favorite breakfast? Do you get in a rut or do you try to mix it up?
