Monday was the big day (in case anyone missed that if thats possible). That meant getting up a little early to get a good hearty breakfast in. The last thing I want is to be the girl who’s stomach is rumbling so loud in a huge exam room that everyone can hear it! Boy do I have a recipe for you. Nothing earth shattering (as far as creative) but the proportions were PERFECT!!
Breakfast: Peanut Butter, Banana and Honey Oatmeal
This stuff has some serious staying power. I even made it again for Casey and I for breakfast today and he loved it!
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 cup almond milk
dash of salt
1 tbsp natural peanut butter
Honey to taste
1 small banana (or 1/2 large), sliced
dash of cinnamon
1. Bring almond milk to slight boil then add oats and stir.
2. Reduce heat slightly and occasionally stir until oats are thick and creamy (about 10 minutes).
3. Reduce heat to low and stir in peanut butter and honey. Allow to marry while slicing banana.
4. Stir in banana and serve with desired about of cinnamon on top.
Lunch: Vanilla Nonfat Yogurt with Pumpkin Flax Granola and a Peach (I was so full until like 2 from breakfast I could barely even think about lunch!)
We had to get to the store Monday afternoon because we barely had any food left so before we went I have a quick snack to keep me from buying things we didn’t need.
Dinner: Almost Summer Wrap from Black Bean (again!!); when I finished my long run at my friends house we either had to leave there right then or stay for the fantasy draft; we opted to stay. Everyone else was getting Chinese food but this close to race time I didn’t really want to eat that so Casey so amazingly made a special trip to Black Bean to get me my wrap!
Monday turned out to be a pretty healthy, packed with power food day!!
