Yes, you can guess from the title that my yogurt bowls are back with a vengeance! It’s been a little while since they’ve made an appearance on the blog, but I definitely had a very special one today. But we’ll get to that in a minute. First things first!
Today is Day 3 of Best Body Boot Camp, and I’m actually excited that it’s a strength day. Yesterday was a cardio day, and can you believe I was disappointed that I wouldn’t be doing any strength exercises? Perhaps, I’m turning over a new leaf!
I know all my Downton Abbey fans will be intrigued. Yes, I said that I was going to start Dr. Zhivago as soon as I finished up the last Plum novel, but when I saw this in the library, I couldn’t resist. I’ve rapidly become obsessed with all things Downton Abbey. I even came across this yesterday, and I think it should definitely be the new addition to my wardrobe. What do you think?
Now it’s time for one of the funnest parts of the week! I love seeing all the yummy things that people post for What I Ate Wednesday. Maybe one of these days something will inspire me out of my routine!
Breakfast this morning was, of course, oatmeal, but it has been so good lately. It’s become my favorite meal of the day because of two special ingredients I’ve been adding. Remember this?
I picked up this jar from Trader Joe’s a few months ago, and I was saving it until I finished up a few of the half eaten peanut butter jars I had everywhere. I finally broke into this right after Christmas, and I’ve been adding it to my oatmeal in place of the peanut butter. So, so good! I’ve also realized in the last few months that Honeycrisp apples are my new favorite, and my grocery store has finally started stocking them! Between the Cookie Butter and the apple, breakfast is definitely a meal for champions!
Last night was beans and cornbread night in the Ford house, so a small dish made an appearance for lunch today. I paired it with my ham and cheese pita. Nothing terribly exciting, but it sure was good!
Now, let’s talk about how awesome Chobani is for second. You guys know I’m a huge fan of my yogurt bowls, and while I was in the grocery store stocking up last weekend I spotted this.
I remembered hearing back in the fall that they were coming out with some new flavors, and I was particularly excited to try the pear and the banana. I mixed up the pear Chobani with an apple (Honeycrisp, of course!), Craisins, and some Love Grown granola this afternoon, and wow. This was delicious! I haven’t been this excited about yogurt since I discovered how much I love the strawberry-banana flavor. Seriously, go try this immediately! I also picked up the banana flavor, and I can’t wait to try it later in the week.
We’re having breakfast for dinner tonight so in lieu of pictures of what I’m sure will be a fantastic omelet, I’ll share a special weekend dinner we had on Saturday. John likes to cook, but since he doesn’t exactly make the healthiest things on the planet, I don’t let him do it very often. There is one dish, however, that is strictly his. I wouldn’t think of trying to take it over! John loves to make chili, and he’s been perfecting it for almost as long as I’ve known him. We try to have it several times during the colder months, and we decided Saturday was a chili kind of night.
Topped with ketchup (Yes, I did! Don’t judge!) and cheese, this bowl of chili was pretty good. Unfortunately, there’s one thing wrong with it. John’s chili is always way too hot for me! I can only ever eat one bowl. He’s working on making it more Nat-friendly .
Ok, folks, it’s time to get my workout on! See you tomorrow!
Have you tried the new Chobani flavors yet? What have you been reading lately?
