**Sorry for the delay**
The last day of the challenge! Although my crazy schedule didn’t allow me to be super creative with my “breakfast” meals, I still feel like I tried some new things (and kept some old favorites, of course)!
Speaking of old favorites…this one never disappoints:
Whipped banana oatmeal with flax, wheat germ, PB granola and maple syrup! Sitting on top of my to-do list
Along with the usual:
I’m dubbing this a breakfast omelette – minus the egg 😉 I definitely want to try putting all of these ingredients into an omelette at some point, because the flavor is amazing!
Mixed greens, black olives, tomatoes, peppers, and feta with sesame ginger dressing.
It may seems like your ordinary salad, but to me, breakfast should be whatever you’re in the mood for. That’s one thing that I have realized from this challenge: it’s ok to eat salad in the morning if that’s what you’re craving – and I definitely think I will be now that it’s SCORCHING outside and I can’t eat my oats without breaking a sweat!
This dinner was a breakfast pita adapted from various websites based on what I had in my fridge!
I used a Whole Foods pita (so good!), sliced deli turkey, reduced fat Mexican cheese and feta. I heated the pita up for about 45 seconds in the microwave so it was soft and melty – and delicious!
I also had some more rice pudding and TJ’s High Fiber – I love this combination!!
The challenge may be over, but as I said, I have become much more comfortable with the idea that it’s ok to eat what one would typically associate with lunch and dinner foods at 7:30 am instead! Thank you to Carmen for developing such a creative idea – I hope this challenge becomes a tradition!
Busy weekend ahead: finish papers, plus study, study, study! I’ve got three days left ladies and gentleman! I may wait to post until after school is over (you understand, I’m sure) – but who knows, I might pop in with some more health links if I find any that are particularly interesting!!
Hope everyone is enjoying the heat (though not so much the humidity) – have a great weekend
