Find out at the end of this post! Moving on to today’s post, breakfast today was some lovely homemade granola with a chopped up banana. This honey nut granola was made a bit different and the recipe will be coming out later this week for it. It’s a bit less ingredients, more fiber and easier than ever!
I did a mini grocery shopping since some of my staples were out like oats, bananas, sugar snap peas, string cheese and bars of course! You all know I love the Cliff kids and the Luna Protein bars. But, I’ve also been loving these Odwalla ones I tried last week; Choco-Walla and White Chocolate Macadamia. The Choco-Walla has a brownie-like texture and chocolate chips! Perfect for satisfying my sweet tooth.
For new things to try I got Van’s wheat and gluten-free waffles in natural instead of the usual buckwheat with berries that I have with my blueberry maple syrup. I also picked up barley! I tried barley in a beef stew before and since I have been quinoa and brown riced out, I decided to use it as a substitution. It works perfect and has a whopping 8 grams of fiber per serving. The only con is that it takes long to cook but that’s what a freezer and containers are for right?
I just wanted to show you my “dinner” for school today. I had some low-sodium turkey rolled up with mozzarella cheese, a side of grapes and Nut-Thins (which are in the tiny container) and a Choco-Walla bar (sorry I had the wrong picture up before). This has lots of protein to get me through 5 hours of class. It’s all about planning ahead! I know there is no veggies, but I make sure to get a double dose at lunch since I’m not a fan of raw/ cold veggies.
Now what is this great surprise? I found BAGELS that are corn and wheat free! I found this gluten-free, low carb and sugar-free store around my job and I decided, since I finally had the time, to stop in. I’ve been craving bread so I was hoping to find one that was corn and wheat free since it has been quite a challenge.
I did manage to find one at the supermarket but it was like $7.00 and change for only four rolls. These millet and flax bagels are by Sami’s Bakery and were $6.50 for 6 bagels!
Not too shabby and each bagel is only 225 calories, 9 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber. They are also low sodium too. It really can’t get any better than that! On Sami’s website, they have cookies, brownies, croutons, wraps, pizza crusts and more. The taste verdict? Super delicious! Tasted like a real bagel and now I am officially in heaven.
