Good morning! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I missed you guys!
I will tell you what I have been up to in a minute, first let’s talk breakfast…
I have been doing warm oats all winter, and really have missed my V-O-O. Since I pretty much can’t handle
gag when I add brown rice protein to my oats (I prefer Vega Plant Based Protein), but have a HUGE bag of Vanilla Sun Warrior, so I haven’t been able to make them. However, I thought adding some Amazing Grass and a hint of protein may do the trick for me! I feel best, and stay full longer when I have a protein, carb and fat at each meal. This is why I add a little protein to my oats…also since I eat mostly a plant based diet so I feel I thrive when I add a little vegan protein to shakes or oats.
This is a very simple recipe, few ingredients just the way I like it.
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Tempt Hemp Milk (or vegan milk of choice)
1 Heaping Scoop Amazing Grass Powder
1 Small Tbs Sun Warrior Protein (or protein of choice)
2 T Chia Seeds
1 T Cacao Nibs
Stevia to taste (or 1/2 T brown rice syrup, agave, etc), optional
Place all ingredients in a bowl stir and cover. Let sit overnight, mix up and enjoy. Add more vegan milk in the AM if needed. You can also heat up if you prefer.
I wanted to add some peanut butter soft serve to the top, but realized I was out of frozen bananas 🙁 That’s an idea for you and you wouldn’t need to sweeten it if you did!
My weekend was pretty chill. Michael and I had a low key dinner Friday night. He’s been sick with a cough and a cold all week. I bought him some Emergen-C and actually got him to down a glass. Shocking. He doesn’t realize he needs to drink more than one glass to make it effective, but whatever. I told him if he drank green smoothies like me he wouldn’t get sick, but he won’t listen.
Saturday we both went to the gym, I did 20 minutes of cardio and a quick triceps workout and some stretching. Came home and cleaned the house all day, and I just can’t stay out of the babies room. I love it in there 🙂
Munchkin does too. He graduated from the crib to my glider….
he’s so presh
even if he took my seat 😉
I started not feeling too great this weekend. Saturday I was getting a lot of Braxton Hicks contractions. Then, Sunday morning I was up doing work on the computer and got really dizzy, nauseous, hot and uncomfortable all around. Staring at the computer screen is definitely not good for me lately, unfortunately…this is why I have been kind of absent in the blog world. I’ll be around though. Michael was a mess too…you should have saw the two of us yesterday. Me on a chair with a cold rag on my face by the open window and Michael in the other room coughing every 5 seconds (which was driving us BOTH crazy). Then last night and today I am having really uncomfortable pelvic pain, I know her head has dropped so I am assuming that’s it. I go to the doc tomorrow again so I will find out what the deal is with that. I need her to hang in until after the 18th since that is my last day of work and Mommy is on a tight budget these days. We’re trying to stretch my income as much as possible since it will be non existent for the next few months. 😉
I am going to clean up around here, then attempt to get a good workout in with my sore crotch (sorry, TMI, hehe). I don’t have any clients until later today so I have to make the best of my time!
Love you all 🙂
How was your weekend???
Moms, do you remember experiencing these symptoms at the end? Any insight for me?
