Good morning guys! Hope you’re excited about the Blogiversary Giveaway!
My mom and I attempted our morning walk, but about 15 feet out the door, it started raining – so we headed home 😦 It’s supposed to be raining for the majority of this week, so it looks like it’s a gym week for me! I actually haven’t been there in awhile since I’ve been taking advantage of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having – so I’m not too bummed.
For breakfast this morning I made some Mixed Dried Fruit Oatmeal. The dried fruit was made up of: apricots, apples and prunes (no, I’m not 90, they are awesome! 🙂 ) however, this bowl was a liiiiiittle of a stretch for me. Here’s why:
- I made the bowl with 1 cup of water instead of 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup skim milk so it wasn’t as creamy as I’m used to
- The dried fruit I used tasted amazing eaten by itself, however, it was a little sour in my oatmeal
I ended up eating the dried fruit bits by themselves and then eating the oatmeal with the banana bites together. These parts when together = not so good, when enjoyed separately = a good bowl of oats! 😀
For lunch, I continued with the fruit theme – I packed a broccoli slaw + mixed greens salad, topped with a chopped Braeburn apple and my last Bosc pear! I will absolutely be picking more of these guys up at the store – they were great! I also packed an Italian dressing + soy sauce mixture to toss with the salad – you guys, the savory saltiness of the dressing, mixed with the sweet and crunchy salad is out of this world! Incidentally this salad would also make a great coleslaw if I were to just shred the apple and pear!
Rounding out my fruit quota for the day is a bunch of red grapes. I love grapes so much – they are the absolute perfect snack. Portable, crunchy, no mess, healthy and fun to eat!
Ok, off to start my day! I hope you guys have an amazing Monday, don’t forget to enter up to 3 times for the One Month Blogiversary Giveaway!
