========================================

Up an hour later this morning. Cut a banana in 1/2 and spread on 1 TBS of Naturally Nutty Vanilla Almond Butter then set off on a long, brisk walk, about 4 1/2 miles.  It’s very mild today and about 55 degrees.

For breakfast, I felt like oatmeal but with a little “chew”. That called for Bob’s Red Mill G/F Steel Cut Oats. I took 1/4 of the left over 1/2 of a banana and chopped it into the 1/4 cup dry oats with about 1/2 TBS of Natural Peanut Butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1 cup water.  Let it boil (we had spill over because I forgot about it while getting Shane’s breakfast) then let simmer while cleaning up for work/school/play…, about 20 minutes.  I don’t make my oatmeal creamy because sometimes my stomach doesn’t like creamy. So I flavor my oats with spices…1/2 tsp cinnamon and fruit, either dried or fresh.  I use water and make them more watery than most people.    Back to this mornings breakfast, the oats were accompanied by 1/2 a grapefruit and a Met-RX chocolate shake with the 1/4 of a banana remaining, added in.  Truly satisfying!

I must be feeling a bit “nutty” today because along with the AB on my banana, and the PB in my oats, I have 1TBS Naturally More Peanut Butter w/Flax to accompany my mid morning apple.  Hopefully the “nutty” doesn’t go to my brain but there is a good chance being that its Friday.   Have a great day!
