Good Morning!

Thursday morning I had every intention to go to crossfit at 5 am.  Do you think that happened?  That’s a BIG NO!

But I went after working 10 hours!  More on that in a minute!


A while back I won a giveaway of  Love Grown Foods.  This morning I finally pulled out the stash of Hot Oats.  I tried the blueberry banana walnut and it was FANTASTIC!  That is probably going to be my favorite flavor of them all!


I added 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder and a couple tbsp of liquid egg whites.  I also threw a few more blueberries on top with a scoop of chunky almond butter.  I am not simple when it comes to oatmeal.

The almond butter came after the picture  😦

Of course mine exploded in the microwave so I had to pout them into a mug.  I’m sure if you are on the go and you don’t have time for toppings these oats are perfectly divine by themselves!

They have a chewy, sweet texture to them which was different from every other kind of oats I have tried!

Off to work I went.

Snack time came around 10 O’colock when I had a banana and my UMP vanilla protein shake.

For Lunch I had a veggie salad with hard-boiled egg, feta and avocado.  The dressing was a mix of Grapeseed oil, balsamic, lime juice and some wildtree seasoning.  It was the perfect flavor for my salad.


I also had a Paleo Pumpkin Walnut Muffin.
