A Pom Wonderful Start

by Joanne on September 29, 2009

Today’s workout was a good one.  It was THIS weight routine preceded by 30 minutes on the Elliptical and 4 miles of sprints with Shane. It was cool and breezy outside, but the best part was the clean, leafy smell of Fall.  Approximately 630 calories burned.

The other day, I received a new product from POM (the site is TOO CUTE!), POM ICED COFFEE.  As always with POM products, the ingredients are all natural and offers a healthy dose of antioxidants (Pom Wonderful Pomegranate Antioxidant Extract).  I tried the Chocolate flavor.  I was given two flavors to sample: Chocolate (fat free) and Cafe au Lait (low fat).

The oats were toasted on the stove with a teaspoon of cinnamon for about 4 minutes over medium high.

This gave them a really nutty flavor.  About 1/2 cup or so of water was then added to the oats, brought to a boil, reduced to simmer and left to cook for about 20 minutes.I added 1 tablespoon of protein powder just before eating  to bring my protein for this breakfast upto 25 grams.

You have to try this POM Iced coffee.  What a treat!
