Aaaand Monday is back again! Luckily for me, it's that time of year again! By "that time" I mean "time to teach The Hunger Games to my kiddos"!!! Absolutely love teaching this book and I'm so excited to introduce it to my new group of students.
Monday also means another Marvelous In My Monday!! Thanks to Katie for hosting.
Marvelous In My Monday is....
1) Nights out with my coworkers! Was so excited to go to The Wreck (best country bar ever) with Sadia and Erin. It was a great night :)
2) Amazing sunsets in Tucson
3) Self explanitory
4) Quality time with the bf. We laughed a LOT this weekend..especially while watching Home Alone 2 and Vegas Vacation.
5) These PB&J Oats
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup egg whites
1/4 cup almond milk (or water)
1 tbsp sugar free jam (I used blueberry; that's why my oats look so weird)
2 strawberries, chopped up
1 tbsp natural peanut butter (or any nut butter)
1/3 tbsp Stevia (or your choice of sweetener)
Bring oats and almond milk to a boil on the stove. Let cook for about 7 minutes. Once milk has soaked up into the oats and is almost gone, add egg whites. Let cook until oats start to pull off of the sides of the pan. Add jam and strawberries to pan and stir. Add Stevia. Take oats off the stove. Put the PB in the microwave for about 20 seconds to make it nice and melted. Pour PB on oats. DEVOUR.
This was my first time trying the whole "egg whites in oats" thing. It was OK. I didn't really taste them but I don't think I let them cook long enough. Either way, these oats tasted amazing and I loved every second of eating them :)
I hope you are all having a fantastic Monday! Riddle me this: how do you perk yourself up on Mondays? What motivates you to get up and out of bed and moving for the week?
What are you going to do today to get moving? I am going to do a 30 minute at home workout for my exercise today. Good times! Get up and go!!
