After all that hard work in Zumba last night, I woke up starving! Oatmeal was the first thing I thought about :)
I think most of my breakfast choices are filling, but there’s just something about a big bowl of oatmeal, fruit, and nut butter. It isn’t too heavy, but it keeps me satisfied until lunchtime most days, making it a perfect quick + easy breakfast.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 cup water
- pinch salt
- 1/2 nectarine
- 1/2 cup wineberries (the last of them!) :(
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
It’s just now lunch time and I’m starting to get hungry – the oatmeal worked!
Let’s just hope my lunch is just as filling.
I brought more of the barley/bean/corn/tomato salad with extra tomato, some leftover green beans, and 1/2 an avocado for some fat.
I do have a snack for this afternoon, but I have a feeling my lunch will be pretty filling thanks to the whole grains, veggies, fiber, and healthy fats.
Plus, any lunch with avocado is good with me :)
Do you ever wake up starving and What are your favorite filling meals – are there certain foods/combinations that never fail to fill you up and keep you satisfied?
I’m always looking for new ideas and recipes!
