Power Protein Breakfast

Last night, I mixed together the following: 1/2 c. dry oatmeal (not instant), 1/2 c. non fat yogurt, 1/4 c. Greek yogurt and 1/4 c. kefir. This morning I stirred in 2 tbs. of ground flax seed. I ate it cold (hot summer day). This meal has 25 g. of protein and I was energized all morning.

MIA

Read this on Daily Spark yesterday and can't believe the difference it is making. MIA stands for mindful, intentional action. I was applying it to breakfast this morning and DH finished long before me which is very unusual. Did you know strawberry seeds crunch as you eat them?

Late Afternoon Munchies

Late afternoon is my "I MUST EAT!" time....so I have found that drinking a mug of hot tea or even a big glass of hot water really stills the eating monster.

Oatmeal in excess

I have found a wonderful recipe for oatmeal that gives me more volume for the same 1/2 of dry oatmeal. I add it to a cup of tea, 1/2 c. of skim milk and add cinnamon, nutmeg and cardamom to taste.
