Good morning! Sunday already? The week- and the weekend- just flew by. I’d planned on getting up at 8 and going for a run (the only way I moved my body yesterday was to go from the bed to the couch and back again) but for some reason sleep wouldn’t come last night and I tossed and turned until at least 3.
Jim made a reappearance this morning:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tsp chunky almond butter
- 1/2 banana
- 1/4 tsp almond extract
- toppings: raisin/pecan smile, dried apricot eyes, Oikos vanilla Greek yogurt nose
This was pretty good. The cookie itself smelled a-MA-zing (cinnamon and almond extract will do that), but it was a little too sweet for my liking. I think it would have tasted a lot better had I used plain instead of vanilla yogurt… the combination of it with the vanilla protein powder left an unsavory aftertaste in my mouth.
My grandparents and I are resuming our Sunday lunch tradition, which will be oh so nice. I need to find a new book on tape (CD, I guess they now all are) to keep me company on the drive. Enjoy the last of your weekend!
