Man, I can already tell this 2 posts/day business is going to be A LOT of work. GOOD THING I’M DONE WITH SCHOOL!! Mwahaha!
Breakfast = oatmeal. Duh. But it was SPECIAL oatmeal! I LOVE pumpkin oatmeal, but the only way I can get pumpkin around these parts this time of year is paying $2.70 for a can of pureed pumpkin at Earthfare. That’s kind of expensive to me. Instead, I decided to use some leftover sweet potato from last night! I was a little apprehensive though – it would either be delicious or really weird tasting. I also added some shredded carrot, per Jessica’s suggestion. Along to that I added pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, a tiny bit of brown sugar, some raisins, drizzle of maple syrup and some maple granola.
Verdict? It was good! It was VERY filling (potato at breakfast = brick in stomach) so I wouldn’t do it every morning, but on occasion it would be deeelightful. The carrots were a great suggestion – they added color and texture to the oats. The sweet potato pretty much tasted like pumpkin, so it was a great substitute.
Lunch will consist of a smaller, leftover bean burger on a bed of spinach, along with some cantaloupe and grapes (the grapes are on their last leg, sorry they look so gross). Does anyone else have trouble spelling cantaloupe? I can NEVER get it right. I also can’t spell diarrhea without spell check….I guess that’s a little gross to share. I swear I don’t have to type that word much.
Anyways, off to work I go! I’m learning how to shelve U.N. and Great Britain documents.
