pumpkin oats and leftover veggies

This morning I decided to use the leftover pumpkin puree’ in my fridge on my oats.  What a great combination!  I was inspired by Jenna’s recent breakfasts, and will be using this combo again (probably tomorrow, to use up the rest of the pumpkin!)



  • 1 cup prepared rolled oats
  • splash of Silk vanilla soymilk
  • 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree’
  • 1 mashed banana
  • sprinkling of pom seeds

For lunch I packed up my leftover spaghetti squash and veggies.  I love when I have leftovers to pack for lunch, it makes my morning so much easier!


For snacks I have had a pink lady apple and a slice of banana apple bread…yum!


So, I skipped a couple of meal postings the last couple of days because they just weren’t interesting and I was feeling stressed from being behind with the deadline and all.  But, a couple of things are definitely worth talking about…

Product Review: Clif Z-Bar peanut butter flavor!


I LOVE these bars!!!  This is my second flavor, I tried the chocolate chip last weekend.  I think the chocolate chip is my favorite so far, but the peanut butter was REALLY good.  I had it as an afternoon snack anticipating that I would be going to spin class, which was canceled, but it held me over nicely until dinner was ready around 8pm.  It had great texture and flavor, very similar to a peanut butter cookie.  Those Clif people sure know what they are doing!  🙂

I can’t wait to go to the store tomorrow and pick up a few more, especially since I scored some coupons out of the Whole Foods Whole Deal…definitely pick one up if you haven’t yet. Coupons for practically every type of Clif Bar available and Stoneyfield coupons, along with some other good stuff.

Product Review: Larabar cherry pie flavor!


I’ve been a long-time fan of Larabars, and cherry pie is one of my favorite flavors.  They are so wholesome and filling and always hit the spot.  I love the fruitiness of their fruit pie flavors, but I’m also really wanting to try come of the non-fruity flavors.   I’ve never been able to find the chocolate coconut, coconut cream pie or peanut butter cookie flavors, and I’m dying to try them!!! They are so hard to find…

Have a great afternoon!  I’m trying out my BSI recipe tonight…so excited!!!
