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!
