I had a very good reminder yesterday about the importance of listening to your body. I was exhausted this weekend, slept late (for me) both days and took a 2 hour nap on Saturday. I still got up early to go to bootcamp on Monday morning but then crashed in bed at 10:00. I did… more

Three Things Thursday 1. My breakup with Almond Milk is still on. I had some almond butter this past weekend in my pancakes and didn’t experience any bloating, so maybe it was just too much almond milk.

Three Things Thursday
1. My breakup with Almond Milk is still on. I had some almond butter this past weekend in my pancakes and didn’t experience any bloating, so maybe it was just too much almond milk. I’m really not missing it in my overnight oats, so I think we’re officially through. Any local friends want 3 or 4 boxes of Almond Milk? I stocked up at Costco not too long ago. Bummer.
2. Speaking of stocking up – - – I buy oats in huge quantities. One day I guess I was in too much of a hurry and I grabbed the 10 pound box of steel cut oats from the store. 10 pounds of a type of oats I don’t usually use is kind of a lot. Has anyone made overnight oats with steel cut oats? I guess I can give it a try. Anyone know if steel cut oats can be easily ground to a flour like consistency so I can use it my pancakes?
My latest favorite overnight oats creation – oats, cinnamon, blueberries and 1/2 a Quest Bar
3. Yesterday’s crazy day was a success – bootcamp, pancakes and everyone to school/work on time. I don’t frequently join in on the buttermilk pancake fest in our house, but after blogging about pancakes yesterday, they just sounded good. And they were so yummy! So, I ended up having my oatmeal for lunch and my originally planned lunch of a hardboiled egg sandwich for dinner. So, let’s see – pancakes for breakfast, oatmeal for lunch and an egg for dinner. Sounds like a perfect day to me.
I know a few people have found my blog lately by searching “almond milk causes bloating” or something like that. So, maybe I’m not the only one. But, cutting it out is really the only thing I’ve changed lately. So take that for what it’s worth. I was having about 1/2 cup a day.
