Good morning! It’s Thursday, which means one day closer to Friday! I’m so excited for the weekend because I have some awesome plans. More on that later.
If you’ve been following my blog, you may have realized I eat pretty much the same foods every day. I don’t do it because I’m afraid to try new foods; I do it because I love my staples! If I get bored of them, I’ll move on. I hope they aren’t boring you because I don’t see a change coming anytime soon!
With that said, here are the foods that I always keep on hand:
I start off with oatmeal every single day. I really look forward to it and I can’t imagine eating anything else! This
crazy oatmeal obsession is actually pretty recent, and I can trace it to the Fall ’11 and Spring ’12 semesters. I really started to have an oatmeal problem when I read Kath’s tribue to oatmeal. I could stare at those pictures for days.
I can’t really think of any other way to phrase that. Maybe non-dairy? I mix my oatmeal with some sort of non-cows milk like soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk. I hate eating oatmeal cooked with just water, and for some reason cows milk (unless it’s yogurt, cheese, or ice cream) weirds me out.
What oatmeal would be complete without nut-butter? Not mine
I love to eat fresh blueberries by themselves, but frozen ones are perfect in oatmeal! They melt in the oatmeal (and my mouth )
Mix the above ingredients for a delicious breakfast of champions!
I love how filling Greek yogurt is! It’s rich, creamy, and keeps me satisfied for a few hours. The first time I tried it, I hated it! This was back when no one had heard of Chobani and it was hidden in the “weird” section of Hannaford. The consistency reminded me of sour cream and I got funny looks at lunch. Scarred me for a few years
When I’m home for lunch and dinner, I usually have a salad at each meal. I’ve had a salad a day for a very long time now. Not to toot my own horn, but I have yet to find a salad I enjoy more than mine
My salad absolutely needs chick peas, end of story. I could easily eat an entire can in one sitting!
I get very sad when there’s no avocados in the house.
I say real bread because there are way too many breads out there so many unnecessary, unnatural processed stuff. Bread only needs a few ingredients!
A sandwich without hummus is just not a sandwich
Have a great Thursday!
