Simply Delicious

Wow-wee!

What I Ate Wednesday already?!

I still can’t believe it! Feels like just last week, I was getting “pumped up” for the latest WIAW theme Jenn threw our way! Speaking of, be sure to pop on over to Peas & Crayons and show our beautiful host some love in the form of a comment…without her, Wednesdays just wouldn’t be the same!

So let’s get this party started, shall we?

Once I made it home after my night shift, I whipped up something quick for “breakfast.” My level of consciousness had been slowly declining from the moment I swiped my badge at the time clock so there was no time to waste!

A quicker variation of my protein wheat cake pizza…just crumble it up, throw it in a bowl and grab a spoon!

I used carob instead of chocolate this time just in case my body decided it wanted to get sensitive to the effects of caffeine. ;)

Minutes later, I crawled into my bed, donned my new lavender-scented sleep mask, and pulled the covers up to my chin…

Ahhh, sleep at last!

When I woke up about five hours later, I really wanted to roll over and go back to sleep, but, the tummy rumblings would not be ignored so I shuffled to the kitchen and realized all I wanted was a big bowl of creamy oats!

Egg White Oats topped with blueberries, coconut, chia seeds, and a drizzle of peanut flour sauce (PB2 mixed with a little water).

Blueberries + peanut butter = HEAVEN!

After I finished my “lunch”, I figured I’d wait an hour or two to let my food digest, but I knew I had big plans for later…plans for a nice sweaty workout at the gym guaranteed to get my heart pumping and bring the life back into me!

That plan died minutes later when I found myself crawling back into bed, donning my lavender-scented sleep mask and pulling the covers up to my chin.

Sleep is good! ;)

And you know what? I didn’t feel the slightest bit of guilt about it either. Sometimes you just have to listen and give your body rest when it needs it.

After snoozing for about 4 more hours, I knew it was finally time to get up and start my day. As I was getting ready for my shift, I brewed some coffee and made sure I gave myself enough time to sit and enjoy it with a little snack before heading to the hospital.

You guys know me…I’m a born dipper…so tell me, WHY have I never thought of this before?!

The little crispies soak up the coffee and literally MELT in your mouth…which actually reminds me of–

I interrupt this regularly scheduled What I Ate Wednesday for something of a very important nature!!!

  37. First I will comment on your post, then get around to entering the giveaway. [I have won two Simply Bar giveaways already...so maybe I shouldn't enter. Whatever. I am obsessed with them so I'm going to anyway. :)]

    I think I’m going to go to our Asian market today and look for those wheat cake things. I fear that the one here in town is too small to carry them…next time I’m up in DC though….

    Also, I’m glad you told everyone to comment on Jenn’s blog. I sometimes feel like people just go to post over there and then don’t even care about HER. [Sorry, that was probably a little intense this morning. LOVE all around!!!]

    I just want tokeep writing random thoughts but maybe I should just e-mail you instead of taking up your comment space. :)

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Awww! Darlin, you can feel free to fill up my comment space ANY time! I have to agree with you on the thing about Jenn…it’s ridiculous how much effort she puts into it each and every week…the LEAST people could do is leave an appreciative comment!

      And funny you should mention the wheat cakes, because there are ALREADY some in your box-o-goodies that’s waiting to be shipped off! ;)

      You’ve won TWO giveaways already?! Umm, mind rubbing some of that luck off on me??

  38. Meg says:

    Now for my comment – ahhhhh Heather! So proud of you for not feeling guilty for taking a nap :) So so proud of you! That’s awesome, babe!

    I also really like simply bars, but kiiiiind of found your fav (lemon coconut) a wee bit sweet for my liking. I did; however, LOVE the cocoa coffee one, but not too many seem to be trying this one in the blogworld! Have you tried it yet, lovie? It’s seriously so so good! Like a mocha :)

    Have a great Wednesday xo

    • kissmybroccoli says:

      Thanks love! No, that is THE one I’ve been dying to try though! You’re actually the first one I’ve heard say anything about how the flavor is and now I’m most definitely sold! Have you tried the cocoa raspberry? That’s another I’ve been curious about.
