Night Shift Hangover

Hello. And I mean no exclamation point with that. Sorry folks, I am hanging on by a thread here. I have been battling my night shift hangover since first thing this morning. After 8 hours of sleep, it took everything in me to get out of bed and get moving and as the (lonnnnnnnng) day progressed, I faded bit by bit.

It’s been a while since I’ve done a night shift and I guess since I wasn’t feeling too bad after my nap yesterday that it made me forget about the second day…it’s like DOMS for your internal clock! Most of my day has been spent downing ginger tea like its my job to ease my sensitive stomach and trying not to fall asleep standing up!

I should have known when it took me nearly 20 minutes this morning to decide on breakfast, though I have to say that the final decision was spot on! I’ve been wanting to try adding peanut flour to my oats like I’ve seen so many other bloggers do and I just happened to have a sad little banana that decided to jump in on the action too!

Creamy Peanutty Oats with Banana & Flax: (serves 1)

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons peanut flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 banana, halved and separated
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon flax seeds

1. Combine oats, milk, peanut flour and extract water in a saucepan and cook over                   medium heat until mixture starts to bubble.
2. Slice 1/2 a banana into thin slices and whisk into oat mixture and cook for an                       additional 3-4 minutes.
3. Remove from heat and stir in chia seeds and allow to set for 10 minutes or so to give         the chia seeds time to do their thickening thang!
4. Pour oats into a bowl, add sliced banana and top with flax seeds.

This was one of the creamiest bowls of oats that I’ve made! I loved how the peanut flour came through without overpowering the taste of the sweet banana! Mmm!

Now, before I pass out and end up with “asdf jkl;” stamped on my forehead, let me show you my quick, easy, and perfectly yummy dinner!

1 slice whole wheat naan topped with spinach and artichoke hummus, sautéed spinach, and Daiya cheddar! Light on the “hangover” tummy, easy and quick for the foggy brain!

Alright, I’m off to go find my normalcy in the form of head to pillow! Nite everybody!

What’s your favorite fix-it-fast dinner when you don’t want to think?
