One of my favorite ways to eat oatmeal!
I read food blogs for about a year before I started my own, and I remember Upside Down Pineapple Oatmeal was one of the first â€œcoolâ€ oatmeal dishes I created (inspired by Kath, obviously). I remember serving it to the Husband and he said, â€œYum! I could get used to this.â€ Hehe.
I love the mix of banana, grilled pineapple, and creamy oatmeal.
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 banana
- Toppings: flax, cinnamon, brown sugar, almonds, and one grilled pineapple ring.
I grilled the pineapple ring on the George Foreman!
An Arm Update
A lot of people have asked about my arm. Thanks for the concern! 🙂 As you might know, I strained my deltoid, but Iâ€™m suppose to be swimming in an Olympic Triathlon THIS Sunday (ahh). I strained it on February 27, and itâ€™s gotten a lot better in the last 9 days, but not enough.
Since itâ€™s not an acute injury, I know that all I need to do is rest my arm and give it time. Unfortunately, because of the race, I have a bit of a deadline! So, the Husband has been pulling out all the Chinese medicine stops. Acupuncture cannot instantaneously heal a strained muscle, but it can help it heal faster.
Beginning on last Thursday, weâ€™ve done an every-other-day regimen of acupuncture and cupping. Last night, he did a crazy technique called Surround the Dragon, when he stuck 5 needles all around the sore spot. Then, we put the heating lamp near my arm for about 30 minutes.
It didnâ€™t hurt (actually, it felt great). My arm ended up being all red and splotchy, which the Husband says it a GOOD thing because it means blood is moving around.
It looks better today!
So â€“ thereâ€™s my arm update. I know a lot of you are interested in alternative treatments so I thought Iâ€™d share. I donâ€™t expect to be cured overnight, but Iâ€™ve got 5 days to get in tip-top shape (Iâ€™m sure it will be fine, so Iâ€™m not panicking).
Also, since I am the Queen of Injuries, I find it hysterical that I injured myself swimming. Isnâ€™t swimming suppose to be the ultimate injury-free sport?! If anyone could injure themselves swimming, itâ€™s me!
