tuna salad and soggy cereal oats

Brrrrrr….  Another frigid morning in Virginia!  My little feet are so cold right now, I am in dire need of some winter shoes!  Day after Thanksgiving shopping, here I come!  🙂

I was in a big rush this morning trying to do some house cleaning while making lunch and breakfast.  I put together a bowl of oats using:

  • 1 cup prepared rolled oats
  • 1 small banana
  • 1 tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup Back to Nature Maple Nut Medley Cereal


I think the cereal would have been a great idea, but because I was in such a rush I wound up running out of time to eat breakfast at home.  So I scooped it all into a gladware container and reheated it at work.  By the time it went through all of that and got all mashed up together into a wonderful oatmeal mush, the cereal was definitely soggy.  It did add a nice flavor though.  Oh, and the blueberries were terrific with the mashed banana.

For lunch I made tuna salad to put in my last WW wrap.


Ingredients: (makes 3 servings)

  • 2 cans of white albacore tuna in water, drained
  • 3 tbsp light mayo
  • 4 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 3 tbsp relish
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1/4 cucumber, chopped
  • garlic powder
  • salt
  • pepper

I wrapped up 1/3 of the tuna salad in a whole wheat wrap and added some arugula mix to the top.


Paired with a Pink Lady…


Mia REALLY wanted some tuna…


So did Hank.


My animals are such beggars!

For snacks I have a banana and a Kashi.


Tonight Brian and I are going for another run after work.  Wish me luck…its supposed to be 32* at 6pm when we hit the pavement!  Brrrrr….
