WIAW: Pumpkin Addition
Happy WIAW! Better to join the party late then to not come at all right?
Thanks Jenn for hosting yet again. I encourage everyone to head over… there is still time to join in the fun… or just read about Jenn’s eats… I had no idea that Burger King had Morningstar Veggie Burgers?! Anyhow… here are my eats… a combo of Tuesday and Wednesday goodies… but who’s keeping track?
Breakfast was an absolute winner.
Obviously by addiction continues… as my overnight oats definitely contained some pumpkin! I combined 1/2 cup of oats and 1 cup almond milk in the microwave. Stirred in 1/2 cup of pumpkin, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla, and a tablespoon of chia seeds and stuck it in the fridge. This morning I topped ‘em off with banana slices, Sunbutter, and some more cinnamon. Can’t have too much cinnamon! On a totally random note, I had an RA in college who ate cinnamon… by the spoonful. She had several huge containers stashed around her room…
Breakfast was followed by a warm cup of fall…
If you own a Keurig, you must pick this up ASAP. It is literally the best coffee I have ever tasted. Period. I plan on buying a stash so I can sip some pumpkin in July:)
Lunch was some leftover… you guessed it… Pumpkin Chili!
Tasted just as good the second day. There was lots of afternoon snackage…
Some handfuls of granola (recipe courtesy of Oh She Glows).
A Dannon Oikos (Vanilla this time) and a juicy pear. I think pears are definitely an overlooked fall fruit! Every time I have one I forget how delicious they are. I like them slightly crunchy. But I also like bananas slightly green…
Dinner was a beast of a salad.
In the mix: spring mix greens, grilled potatoes, peppers, and onions, avocado, mango, and rotisserie chicken. Topped with some cinnamon vinaigrette (Check out the Peas and Thank You Cookbook for this incredible recipe). On the side: a wheat tortilla.
And finally, best course of the day my friends… dessert. Oh She Glows strikes again with Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Balls.
I love the combo of peanut butter, chocolate chips, and rice krispies for crunch.
There you have it folks! Body Pump kicked by butt today… time to do some lounging around before bed.
Question: Do you have any weird foods that you eat plain? I love grainy mustard all my itself.
