No Dinner, but I do have a Winner

All long weekends must come to an end, but not before a creamy bowl of oats.


In the mix: 1/2 cup oat bran, 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk, 2 tbsp. canned pumpkin, 1/2 tbsp. coconut oil, and ground flax seed.

I got the idea to add coconut oil to my oats from Christie! I’m happy to report that it was quite tasty. I loved the coconut flavor it added and the fat content kept me filling full all morning long.

As I walking home for lunch I had no idea what to eat. I was thinking that it was going to be a pb&j kind of day. Turns out I had a few obscure veggies laying in the bin at the bottom of the fridge so I chopped up a few and created a nice little hummus sandwich.


Toasted WW bread spread with garlic hummus, spicy apple mustard, cucs, mushrooms, carrots, and orange bell pepper served with some kettle cooked jalapeño chips.


I’m not a big chip person however, a small bag of these had been in the cabinet for months and today I was craving chips, so I dug right in.

In other non-food related news, I bought a new pair of running sneaks. I got the Asics GT-2150, which is simply the newer version of my old ones. This is typically what I do every time I get a new pair. I was fitted for this style when I first started running road races and it works really well for me, so why change?


My others were quite worn out so I definitely felt the extra support during tonight’s visit to the gym. Love Asics!!

After a quick visit to my packed gym this evening I came home ravenous and stir fried some leftover brown rice and veggies from my b-day dinner at Puff Changs. I was quite hungry and didn’t even think about busting out my camera so In lieu of a photo I have an announcement! 🙂

  1. Between the spicy apple mustard and those kettle chips, I’m craving your lunch. Kettle chips have the BEST crunch factor! Woohoo for the new kicks – love the blue color 🙂

  2. your oats look really good! i’ve never had oat bran before… i absolutely love oatmeal, so i’ll have to give it a try! is it much different than regular oats?

    • The flavor of oat bran is very similar to oatmeal as it’s just the the outer casing of the oat. It’s much finer than rolled oats and cooks quickly (5-7 minutes). It’s also high in soluble fiber and easily/quickly digested.

      I like making combination oats with 1/4 cup oatmeal and 1/4 cup oat bran! The texture of two together is great!
