WIAW: Kabocha Luscious Bowl

Hey guys! Hope you all had a happy humpy day!

I can’t believe the week is halfway over already. One more day of work before Move Day! Eek! I’m so excited/nervous/tired already! 😉

I like having a plan. A plan helps to calm nerves. A plan helps to give you an idea of what to expect. Right now, there is NO plan and I’m trying my best not to faaaareeek out!

All I know is that I have a little over 24 hours before the big move (9 of which I will be stuck in the four concrete walls of the hospital and 14-16 hours reserved for z’s) and I still need to:

  • Finish packing the living room, my bedroom and closet.
  • Run a load of laundry…Wait, again? Didn’t I just do that?!
  • Forward my mail, oh and speaking of mail, I kinda I need to go get the new house a mailbox!
  • Call the rental truck company and sign over my unborn child for a gas-guzzling moving-machine

Oh, well, now that I’ve seen it in bullet format, it doesn’t seem so bad after all…NOT!

Ok, enough about that! Let’s move on to happier things…things that HAVE a plan! How about another edition of What I Ate Wednesday?!

Hop on over to Jen’s blog at peasandcrayons.com and check out all the link-ups for this week! And if you are a blogger, you should totally think about linking up yourself in the future! All the cool kids are doing it! 😉

Breakfast (7:00am)
Perfect Protein Oats in a Jar + 1/2 caf of Meet Joe Black

I’m getting a little desperate for ingredients now in the final days of the Clean Out the Fridge/Pantry Challenge. I was forced to get a little creative with my oats this morning since I happen to be out of my “oatmeal making staples” (bananas and milk).

Perfect Protein Oats: (serves 1)

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons egg whites

1. Combine oats, water, and protein powder in a pot on the stove and cook over medium-     high heat until boiling.
2. Add egg whites and whisk until cooked through (it will form little egg white swirls in         the oats)

I enjoyed my oats in a waning jar of one of my favorite peanut butters (about 1 tablespoon left in jar) and topped with a small handful of Kashi Autumn Wheat cereal and a half cup of thawed frozen peaches.

And of course I had my morning dose of candy vitamins!

Lunch (12:30pm)
Kabocha Luscious Bowl: millet, aduki beans, and roasted kabocha squash
topped with a sunflower butter/nooch drizzle

I finally got around to making a bowl inspired by Carrie’s “Luscious Bowls.” I loved EVERYTHING about this meal! I honestly don’t prepare millet enough! It is such a fabulous grain and only takes minutes to cook!

The aduki beans were something new for me. Have you ever tried them? They remind me of black-eyed peas but with a little more flavor. Definitely a great combo with the sweet squash and nutty/cheesy sauce!

Dinner (7:30pm)
1 cup plain yogurt (strained overnight), 1/2 cup mixed berries,
and a handful of more Autumn Wheat cereal

Wanna know why dinner was so light?

Well, you see, it seems as if my lovely home state of Tennessee has decided that it hates me. Never in my 23 years of living in this state, have I EVER had a problem with allergies…until now!

I didn’t have much of an appetite for dinner, after my afternoon/evening of this:

Yep, that’s right…sick again!

Just be glad this is a vlog post since I totally sound like death warmed over! Rawr!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to toss down a few more cough drops, rub Vicks all over my body, take a Benedryl and hope that this will all be gone by Friday! *fingers crossed*

Question of the day:

Who wants to help me move?! 😉
