I am not doing good in the “get out of bed on time” department this week. I don’t know what it is…but I can’t make myself get up!
I was excited, however, to get up and start off my Vegan 4 A Day Challenge!
While I’m not even a vegetarian, I thought it would be an awesome challenge and a great way to really think about what you’re eating.
I was really excited for my vegan breakfast ;)
I had an almost empty jar of (vegan!) Trader Joe’s Almond Butter, so I made myself some oats-in-a-jar.
- 1/3 cup oatbran, 1 cup water, pinch salt
- 1 small local gala apple, diced
- almond butter!
While the oatbran cooked, I diced up the apple and microwaved it with some cinnamon and ground ginger.
Then I mixed the apples into the oatbran and loaded it into my “bowl”.
Great way to start my day!
I think the hardest thing for me today will be figuring out dinner (based on my meal plan) and coffee!
Does almond milk work okay in coffee? I guess we’ll see – I’ll report back at lunch!
