Yesterday when I got up I of course wasn't hungry right away. I eventually had a plain Chobani with some Muesli mixed in, topped with blueberries and cinnamon. YUMMY! I had a half a cup of coffee on the side just because it had been a while and I wanted the taste.
Some of my afternoon was spent out in the sun reading the new Health and Self magazines that arrived. Then I got an urge to make muffins so using the frozen blueberries that we've had for a while I made some Blueberry Orange muffins. Yeah I threw in some orange zest to spice it up a little. When I bake I tend to put in the least amount of sugar and the most amount of healthy pantry ingredients I can find. They definitely don't come out sticky sweet but I am fine with that, it's everyone else that I'm pretty sure thinks whatever I bake is gross. I admit the Carrot Oatmeal cookies last month didn't turn out very well but hey that is what experimentation is about. As for my muffins, I really like them so here are the ingredients:
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 cup oats
- 1/4 cup flaxseed meal
- 1 scoop protein powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- zest of 1 orange
- 1 single serve unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup 2% plain Chobani (would have used nonfat but I have to use up the 2%)
- 2 egg whites
- splash of vanilla extract
- 1 cup frozen blueberries
I had to taste test one of course hehe. I also had another for dessert later on : )
Dinner was some leftover salmon with black beans and brown rice. I like to eat fish more than twice a week so I usually split it up into smaller 3-4 oz portions so I can have it more times. Works fine for me!
Snack monster throughout the night (keep in mind I was up until 6!) Glass of nonfat milk, then a mini whole wheat bagel with Teddie Unsalted P.B. topped with some Craisins, then later a light mini Babybel. Not too bad considering. A day lacking in veggies though. I just seem to be craving carbs and dairy lately and it's hard for me to want a salad in the middle of the night, ya know?
