You’re probably thinking…pancakes? Again?
Yep, that’s right. No shame.
Another batch of Kath’s Whole Wheat Yogurt Pancakes…with a twist! Can you guess the twist?
If you guessed PUMPKIN…bada bing bada boom, you win! I substituted 1/2 cup of yogurt for 1/2 cup canned pumpkin. Not only did it make for a pair of jaundiced ‘cakes, but with the addition of cinnamon, almond butter + syrup, these were EVEN BETTER THAN LAST TIME. No lie.
You’re probably thinking…what the heel is on that wrap?
The simple answer to that: almond butter, cinnamon, carob chips + raisins.
All wrapped up + microwaved for 45 seconds. Plated with some cheetahs + BBQ sauce. Lunch is served.
You’re probably thinking…what else did you eat today?
(Perhaps you are not. I just couldn’t think of a better question.)
3/4 cup Yoplait Strawberry Mango Pineapple frozen fruit
1/4 cup organic plain yog
1/2 cup organic skim milk
1/2 small banana
1 handful (about 1 cup) baby spinach
You’re probably thinking…but Holly, how could you possible make a homemade green smoothie? You don’t have a blender!
Au contraire my dear bloggy friends, au contraire.
Thank you so much My BlogSpark and Yoplait for providing this gift pack (including the blender and coupon) – you have no idea how happy this package made me, especially because I have been yearning for some kind of blender!
I chose the strawberry-mango-pineapple blend, which was delicious. My only issue with it was it had sucralose. I don’t care it contained artificial sweeteners (reference my last two posts), but it was just TOO SWEET. Plus, there was nonfat milk powder added to it as well, and the whole thing tasted just a lil’ funky. However, definitely not funky enough that I didn’t guzzle down that sucker.
You’re probably thinking…but how was the blender?
Perfect. Just perfect.
You’re probably thinking…did you do anything else besides eat today?
Why yes, yes I did.
I re-watched Sasha Cohen yet again fall apart in the U.S. championships, cozied up to watch An American in Paris at 4:30am this morning (with my cross-generational eternal love Gene Kelly), did a killer 60-minute Dave Farmar yoga podcast, went grocery shopping, cozied up yet again to watch Last Chance Harvey (adorable!) this afternoon, took a bath, finished some freelance writing, cleaned some thangs up, ate dinner…
You’re probably thinking…what is this classy dinner spread before us?
Well, I am glad you asked! That would be 1 cup broccoli slaw + drizzle of ranch dressing, carrots + baba ghanoush alongside a blueberry Chobani + whole wheat graham crackers. Slightly random, yet totally delicious.
You’re probably thinking…when is this lady going to shut up once and for all?
Right now. Promise.
After you answer perhaps a question or two?
What was the highlight of your weekend? ANTHONY BOURDAIN. I love him even more now. I didn’t think that was possible.
Pancakes or French toast? As much as I love pancakes, I love French toast more. It happens to be one of my top 3 fave foods ever.
And perhaps stay tuned tomorrow for just maybe a giveaway or something…ya know…just sayin’…
