Good morning! It’s another gloomy day here in DC and so rainy and gross outside. I feel like the rain is good only because it makes being inside all day more bearable, but it stinks not to be able to go outside to run or bike! Plus, today I’m going to have to venture out to buy lunch because I ran out of time to pack one this morning. That’s the reason I normally pack my lunch at night, but after 3+ glasses of wine, that wasn’t the first thing on my mind.
So I did end up taking a photo of a lot of the goods I got yesterday at the Asian grocery store.
- Honey Crystals
- Veggie Buns
- Tapioca Flour
- White Sweet Potatoes
- Goji Berries
- Unpictured silken tofu (for 88 cents!)
I’d never seen or even heard of Honey Crystals before, but when I saw the cute bear (and was in need of honey!) I decided to give them a try.
They are basically little balls of dried honey that can be used 1:1 with sugar in recipes, sprinkled in tea or coffee, on top of ice cream or oatmeal, or eaten plain! I tasted a few and they tasted just like regular honey, but obviously dry and not sticky. Apparently it has the same health benefits as regular honey (which you can find here).
Moving along, breakfast today was simple and quick, but delicious nonetheless. I forgot to pack my breakfast last night, but was craving oats, so I mixed together:
- 1/3 cup of oats
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 scoop protein powder
- 1/3 cup of almond milk
- 1/3 cup of nonfat Chobani
I brought that to work along with a banana, and made a parfait with layers of banana and layers of the oats.
It was delicious! A much quicker version of Banana Softserve Overnight Oats and it was nice having the banana spread throughout the oats because I normally plow through the toppings on my oats a little too fast.
Now, back to work! Hope Tuesday is being good to you!
