Today’s oatmeal was divine. I also had a large Asian pear on the side.
- 3/4 cup dry oats, 1.5 cups water
- salt, cinnamon, vanilla
- 2 tablespoons wheat germ
- 1/4 cup chocolate almond milk
- blueberry maple syrup (I love flavored maple syrups)
I also wanted to share a recent meal. I ended up changing Tuesday night’s menu plan meal (it was supposed to be soba noodle sushi) to just plain soba noodle soup. This was actually the bowl that I made for Bobby’s lunch yesterday (he came home to visit me!) because I didn’t snap a picture on Tuesday.
- soba noodles
- “meat” of choice (Bobby likes chicken; I like tofu)
- bean sprouts
It was very simple to prepare – just boil the water with the broth cube, add the noodles, and “meat” of choice (for me this is tofu), then about a minute before the noodles finish you add the veggies.
I did some new yoga this morning too – Sarah (LovIN My Tummy) recommended an ExerciseTV video called “Yoga Sculpt“, which was about 25-30 minutes long. I liked it! The instructor offered some nice modifications to make it more difficult, which I took advantage of. After Yoga Sculpt I did my favorite Tom Morley video (20 minutes) – Buns and Thighs Yoga.
I find that the shorter videos/mp3s tend to get me sweatier than some of the longer sessions that I do. This is probably because the instructors try to really pack in a workout in those 20-30 minutes. Have you experienced this? Thoughts?
