A Lovely Lunch Surprise!

Posted on

This morning, I woke up and did my workout at the apartment.  At first, I had planned on heading to the gym and just getting ready there, but since Brian is leaving for two weeks today (and it is our three year anniversary!) I thought that it would be nice if we ate breakfast together and spent a little time together this morning.

Workout

The workout was quick, but effective.  Because I knew I had limited time, I used supersetting to maximize my time.  To superset is to complete one exercise then immediately follow it with another exercise without having a rest inbetween.  The two exercises work best if they don’t target the same muscle group.  It is a great time-saver and adds a little extra challenge to a workout because of a shortened rest period.

Breakfast
My plans to make a weeks worth of baked oatmeal turned out perfectly!  They were all ready to go this morning, and they tasted delicious.

Blueberry Baked Oats

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened organic applesauce
  • 5 egg whites
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 packets of stevia in the raw
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 3 Tbsp plus 1 tsp natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup blueberries

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease ramekins or large muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Mix until thoroughly combined.  Pour into 5 ramekins or muffin tins.  Bake for 20 minutes.  Allow to cool, then refrigerate for use at a later date, or eat warm from the oven!

Because these little cakes are so filling and dense, I usually eat half before I workout and then half after 🙂

Lunch

Yesterday, when Brian and I got home from our midday date, there was a little surprise waiting for me in the fridge.  Brian’s mom had made me a salad with tuna and egg whites for lunch.  She even packaged up some almonds for a snack!  What a nice treat!

The salad was delicious and filling!  Thanks Kate 😉
