Hello lovely bloggers! Gosh, it has been a while! I am such a bad blogger! haha!
Well this week I am finally on spring break! It has been very busy so far! On Friday I went shopping with my family, Saturday I had work for 5.5 hours and on Sunday I ran (a six-miler!) visited my grandma and spent the night at my sister’s apartment! I got got home Monday morning and spent the evening with one of my best friends, and today was filled with appointments and errands! Tomorrow I will finally have time to relax! I am exhausted, but it has all been in good fun. 🙂
Since I know you’re dying to see more oatmeal pictures, here are some delicious breakfasts from the past week:
mango/goji berries/pistachios/crystallized ginger
caramelized pear/currants/white chocolate wonderful pb
banana/pistachios/dried fig/sun butter
banana/caramelized pear/cashini butter
chopped apple/dried cherries/pine nuts
I am obviously obsessed with oatmeal. It is my breakfast of choice almost every day! I love it because it is so nourishing, it’s warm and filling, and there are so many endless options. Whenever someone tells me that they don’t like oatmeal, I simply reply, “Well, you obviously make it wrong…” 🙂
Today at my favorite grocery store I made some amazing finds! Among them are PB&Co’s Cinnamon Raisin Swirl peanut butter, Justin’s Nut Butter packets, some new bars, like the Macro, and Turkish figs, which i have never tried! I have only ever had the blackish-purple kind, and these are very light!
For the patties, I simply mixed 2 lbs extra lean ground beef with 1 can black beans, 1 can diced green chilies and 1 packet Gluten-free “burrito/fajita seasoning” and formed into patties. I cooked them on a grill pan, blotted off the extra grease, and served on a high-fiber English Muffin with spicy mustard, cool avocado, romaine and grilled asparagus! You could easily sub 1 tbs cumin, 1 tsp chili powder and 1/2 tsp salt for the seasoning mix.

The infamous Bunny Bar, take two! The squeaky cheeky chocolate cherry flavor was deliciously sweet and definitely chocolatey! I loved the addition of sunflower seeds to this bar as well. Again, it was very dense and hard to chew, and lacked cherry flavor but I still give it an “A”
Enjoy your week, lovelies!
