It is a Gorgeous day out <3

4 May

The sun is a shinin’ out, and today is in the upper 70’s. Aye yeah summer is so close, you can feel it! lol.  Anywho, the alarm went off at 5 AM, then we got up and made a yummalicious oat creation. Instead of using our typical almond milk in them, we used SO Delicious Unsweetened Coconut milk. The company sent us a generous amount of VIP coupons, so this bad boy was calling our name to try next.

 

  • Dairy Free / Lactose Free
  • Soy Free
  • Gluten Free
  • Rich in Medium Chain Fatty Acids
  • Excellent Source of Vitamin B12 (vegetarian friendly)
  • Formulated for Maximum Calcium Absorption
  • Cholesterol Free
  • No Trans Fats
  • Certified Vegan

 

** Verdict: So far, this brand coconut milk is fantastic! I love the creaminess it adds to oats, and the nutritional stats are phenomenal. We have had other coconut milk in the past, but this one is the BEST! And we plan to make some of our German chocolate oats, or an almond joy breakfast cookie with it, yummy stuff.

 PB, Banana, Honey oats:

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp golden flax seeds
  • 1/2 ripe mashed banana
  • lots of cinnamon

Toppings:

 mmm, honey in oats is divine 😉

 Today was a short day, so when we got out at 10:45, and hit up the gym. For a Pre-workout snack, we dug to the bottom of our “bar bag,” and had some Apple Soy Joy bars.

While at the gym we completed a treadmill circuit, and some Ab action.

 We were SWEATY! After our sweat sessh, we hit up Target to look if they were having any good deals, then we drove home and had this fabulous lunch on the back deck. Using up some more of our Western Alternative Bagels, we had a bagel egg white sandwich and a pink lady smeared with cashew butter and cinnamon.

Well, time to go get some housework done, squeeze in a nap, and then a little HW. Tonight homemade nachos are sounding pretty good for dinner, using up some leftover wheat tortillas with Turkey Chile on top. YUM! Who knows? Plans and cravings always change. lol Oh and the Hill’s comes on tonight, yayayay.

    I love Coconut Milk! It’s so expensive, so I only buy it when it’s on sale at my local grocery.

    Ps: Almond Joy oats would be marvelous!
