Happy Friday. Do your Friday dance!
I am the type of person who gets into food ruts. Hello, Mmmm Sauce, Panda Puffs cereal, and â€“ um â€“ everything else I eat. Variation is important, of course, but man â€“ I know what I like, and I like what I like, and I wanna eat it over and over again.
Havenâ€™t seen this meal in a while!
I had to stop eating dairy while breastfeeding, and when I stopped breastfeeding and could return to yogurt, cheese, and ice cream, I thought Iâ€™d go dairy rampant. But no. I added it back into my diet, but itâ€™s a once-a-day kind of thing now â€“ if that. I used to be the type of vegetarian who would say, â€œI can never go vegan â€“ what about cheeeeeese?!â€ but now I see that itâ€™s not really so hard to give it up when you have to (or really want to, I suppose). You get used to it.
Anyways, I â€˜rememberedâ€™ Greek yogurt the other day. MAN! I have not had yogurt in forever â€“ nearly a year. And that means I havenâ€™t had my beloved yogurt and raw oatmeal in forever, either. Itâ€™s my favorite way to eat yogurt, itâ€™s cheaper than granola (and has no added sugar), and itâ€™s oh-so-good. Try it! I swear â€“ itâ€™s great. I know it looks weird, though.
Vanilla yogurt with raw oats, banana, and canned pumpkin puree.
Oh, I have a great book to share with you! So many readers recommended that I read this one because I love The Hunger Games, and you were all right â€“ it did not disappoint!
The Maze Runner is about a group of boys stuck in the middle of a massive maze. They have no idea how they got there, who they are, or whatâ€™s happened to the rest of the world, but they do know they need to find an exit â€“ and fast. This book sucked me in and kept me on the indoor bike trainer for a whole hour. It was great â€“ canâ€™t wait to read the second book in the series (and see the movie when it comes out next year!
So â€“ what about you? Any forgotten foods? Or great books?
