Happy Hump day… err… night.
Headed to bed!
My activity is nil. For many various reasons. I am determined to do something about it, but then the next day comes, something else comes up… and BAM. No jog. I have to get to sleep earlier at night for sure.
I have no idea how I’m going to do at Weigh in tomorrow!! I’m not feeling so optimistic!
I only have 1 food photo. Dinner. Took 1/2c quinoa, put some Amy’s black bean & veggie soup (approx 1/2c) on there, then some salsa and some black beans. Heated it up and ate it. Heaven in my mouth. Soooo GOOD! There are days I survive without cheese and think I could be vegan… for a week anyway!
So, tonight…. after getting some of my 1000 photos into albums (yes, 2 years of nephew photos add up! Plus a Vegas trip!).
So, I have a lot of oats in my kitchen. I’ve been dying to make homemade granola bars or even granola (and might this weekend). Last night I read Susan's blog and got inspired. Why not whip up my own version of a non-bake protein n’ oat bar? So, that’s exactly what I did.
- 2c oats
- 1/4c natural peanut butter
- 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
- 1/4c raisins
- 2tbsp each of pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds & unsweetened coconut
- sprinkle of hulled hemp seeds
- sprinkle of chia seeds
- 3/4c water
- 1.5tsp agave
Mixed it all up and put it in a square pan
I’ve put it in the freezer for now, but will move it to the fridge before bed (in 7min). I’ve done the calculations. When cut up into 8 bars here’s the stats (roughly) for each bar
- cals: 155
- fat: 7g
- sodium: 133g
- carbs: 13g
- sugars: 4g
- fibre: 2g
- protein: 9g
Total points per bar? 3
I may have tried a teensy weensy bite of it and may have decided I LOVE it!
See you on the flip side of tomorrow!
