Just Can’t Live Without YaPosted: May 4, 2011
Due to some mis-reading of the buckwheat bake recipe yesterday, breakfast today was an exact repeat. But no complaints here :). In fact, todays breakfast bake turned out even better than yesterdays. I had, by accident, made two servings of the buckwheat bake yesterday morning and with no one to share the second serving with I decided to just cover it with saran wrap and leave it in the refrigerator for today. So todays breakfast came together in a matter of minutes. I transferred the dough from my saran-wrap covered bowl to a greased ramekin and microwaved for 1 min 30 seconds. The dough had actually firmed up quite a bit overnight, but it just made for an even more doughy texture that I so very much enjoyed this morning with a nice steaming hot cup of joe.
See? Exactly the same as yesterday. Even down to the strawberries.
As I was taking a snack break earlier today and reading up on some blogs, I came across Averie’s post and realized what a serious case of the munchies I’ve been having lately. I don’t know whats gotten into me, but I can’t stop snacking, especially after dinner. I think I need to work on my self control. Pronto. But it got me thinking about what I can’t seem to go a day without eating.
Last month it was smoothies and juices from my vita mix. This month its been cereal and granola with strawberries and bananas.
I may or may not have run out of bowls and had to jam everything into a small bowl…
I had pretty much the exact same thing yesterday expect in a larger bowl. (And I was either severely dehydrated and needed all sorts of drinks or I was sitting there doing some intense paper writing for wayy too long.)
I just can’t seem to get enough of this cereal and fruit goodness. But i realized the one thing I truly CANNOT live without is my beloved almond milk. I go through cartons like its going
out of fashion bad. I used to drink unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, but I recently discovered unsweetened pure almond by Silk.
This stuff is off-the-chain-good. It’s creamier than almond breeze but somehow 5 calories less per serving. …Not that the 5 calories is what got me to make the switch. It was just the creamier and fuller texture (is that the right word? – it just seems odd to say texture when referencing milk) that got me hooked. So much that I gave up my beloved vanilla flavor that I oh so love.
You know what? A nice cold glass of almond milk sounds pretty good right now. I think that’ll be the perfect end to my evening. Especially now that I have one less essay to worry about. I finished my 12 page paper a couple hours ago! Just one more paper and one more exam to go!! Catch ya later oaties 🙂
