Easy Eats

20 Jul

We’re half-way through the week (& 17 days from the wedding, in case you’re wondering ;-))!

I’m going to share with you two different “easy eats” I enjoyed today!

First thing this morning, I headed to the gym & completed 45 minutes on the elliptical that looked very similar to Monday’s workout.

When I came home, it was time to get crackin’ on breakfast. I decided to whip up some chocolate chip oatmeal! First, I cooked the oatmeal in milk.

Cooking After about 5 minutes, I added in the following mix-ins:

  • Chopped walnuts
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Chia seeds

Ingredients Toppings

The mini chocolate chips started melting into the oatmeal & tasted delicious!

After getting ready to run some errands (what I do pretty much every day!) I decided to blend up a quick smoothie to take with me on the road.

I blended together:

  • 1/2 a banana
  • About 3/4 c. frozen pineapples
  • About 1/2-3/4 c. plain Chobani
  • Splash of milk

I loved the banana/pineapple flavor combo; very refreshing in the oppressive heat we’ve been experiencing here in PA!

My first errand was to pick up our ceremony program covers from our graphic designer, Kristin! Kristin has put together beautiful invitations & other extras for our wedding, & I’ll definitely be showing off some of her work after the big day!

Next, it was over to the apartment to continue the never-ending set-up! I think I’m finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel! Next up is to start moving some of my clothes there. Look! I finally got some of those decorations hung:

What’s your favorite oatmeal mix-in? OR What’s your favorite breakfast?

    I love fruit in my oatmeal! Lately it has been peaches and blackberries 🙂 But usually it is blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.

    Oh my I don’t know that I could ever choose a favorite breakfast – it’s my FAVORITE meal of the day!

    As for oatmeal mix-ins my must-haves are fruit, nut butters and extra clustery granola! But a muffin on top is pretty darn good as well 🙂 Your bowl looks incredible.
