No Pumpkin? No problem.

I woke up craving some pumpkin and banana oatmeal! Too bad I had used the rest of my pumpkin in my oatmeal yesterday!I had already started thinking about what else I could eat, and then….

then I remembered that I had frozen some amazing pumpkin/chocolate chip bread a few months ago  :)  I took a slice out of the freezer and popped it in the toaster oven for a few minutes while I made my oats.

The combination ended up being:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp (total) of walnuts and almonds
  • 1 slice pumpkin chocolate chip bread, crumbled on top

The outcome?



One bowl of amazing oats. I forgot how much I love this bread!  Good thing I still have a few pieces in the freezer  :)

I also had about a cup of skim milk to complete my breakfast.


Monday at work is…..Monday at work. What can I say?  I hate when the alarm goes off on Monday mornings. For some reason, it’s worse on Mondays than on ANY other day, right?

Lunch today may seem a bit familiar to one last week. I used the last of the refried beans to make a wrap with ff cheese and hot sauce!


I also had a salad with romaine, tomato, avocado  and a little lime juice…


And some fruit!  Grapes and strawberries to finish off my meal.


Exciting thing about today – I’m going to a yoga class tonight! I’m SO excited. It has been a long time since I’ve been to an actual class, and this one is 1:30 long – it should be great. I’ve taken classes with this lady before and love her, so I am looking forward to this WAY too much  :)

Around 4:30 or so, I’m going to have this snack to hold me over until and through yoga –


Greek yogurt + Pom arils + semi-sweet mini chips = love  ♥

Dinner, and the dinner post, will probably be a little later than normal. The class is from 6:15 – 7:45, and I won’t be eating dinner until after class.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!
