Home-Work

One of the benefits of working from home is comfort. I can wake up, head to the gym, eat and prepare a well-balanced meal and sit in comfortable clothes all day--which is why I have been slacking in the OOTD posts recently. To be honest, I've become obsessed with food blogs! O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D! I can't get enough of the pictures of melty, mouth-watering HEALTHY concoctions, and now I just love posting my own attempts (key word being attempts).
For breakfast today I put another spin on my oatmeal:
1 serving size oats // 1/2 cup blueberries // 1/4 banana (cut) // 1 spoonful of chunky peanut butter // 1 spoonful of grape jelly // tons of cinnamon
Ohhh so delicious!
I found the secret: microwaving my oats, then adding about 1/4 c. of blueberries in, mixing it around, microwaving for another minute then adding everything else in. The result was like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich...brought out the little kid in me :)

Today will be filled with work, heading to Whole Foods to buy Xantham Gum (to make my smoothies THICK! Inspired by Julie GoLean and Peanut Butter Fingers). Weirdly enough, Trader Joe's doesn't carry it. Oh and check out this video for a really great laugh- Happy Monday!
