Happy Tuesday! I finally feel like things are settling down from the hectic month that was March! With NO traveling for the rest of April, things are looking up for my stress-level so far:)
It was a beautiful day in Kansas, maybe getting a little hot actually;) But, alas, tomorrow starts a string of ho-hum weather. I am a HOT weather kind of gal!!!
This morning I started off my day with OATMEAL INSANITY!!!
My morning snack was a new Greek yogurt I found: Oikos.
This one had caramel on the bottom and others have fruit (who would choose fruit over caramel???). I'm still die-hard Chobani, however, this is good in a pinch! It's a bit sweeter than most of the other Greek yogurt I've had, but I have a sweet tooth so I'm not complaining!
It still has all of the health benefits of Greek yogurt and it's definitely filling!
My exciting news is that a got a juice at Nebraska Furniture Mart this weekend! Only $20, so we'll see how long it lasts, but I tried my first concoction of items I had in the fridge:
Morning Red Delicious
3 small apples (I used Jonathon)
1/2 of a lemon (peeled)
1 thumb-size piece of fresh ginger
It was delicious, as expected;) I really have no problem getting in my fruit for the day. I love having grapes, apples, BANANAS, and strawberries as snacks and in smoothies throughout the day. Vegetables are a bit of a chore to get in sometimes unless I have a salad or stir-fry. So here are some combos I'm really looking forward to:
I think adding an apple to all of those vegetable combos will bring a surprising tart and sweet flavor to the vegetables! I'm super stoked about trying these combos and I'm heading to the store TOMORROW for some healthy goodies! I'll let you know how it goes:)
