Sweaty and Savoury
Mmmmm sounds like a good combo doesn’t it?
Not really? Well, these two words pretty much sum up the lovely day I had
It all began with a hearty breakfast of oats, eggs, and a Pink Lady apple followed by an incredible weight lifting session at the gym!
I definitely unleashed the beast today and it felt gooooooood
Some day. Someday day…
Today I began week 3 of the LIVEFIT trainer and loved it because I lifted heavier today Week 3 goes from doing 12 reps to 10. I did some of my exercises at 8 reps, just so I could up my weights from the first two weeks I really enjoyed this chest and triceps workout. I challenged myself and it felt good
After the last rep of one-arm cable pulldowns I was off to the change room to refuel on a wonderful PWO shake that tasted like Christmas
Blueberries, cranberries, cinnamon swirl About Time protein powder, and a ton of ice went into the mix!)
Cranberries always remind me of Christmas So, the cinnamon flavoured protein powder and cranberries made this shake even more excited for Christmas
Once I got home from the gym, a shower was next on the list.
But a good stinky. You know you work hard when…
Once I was smelling back to normal (not stinky!) I cozied up on my couch to some eggs, sweet potato with cinnamon, and my text book for a few hours!
(Not the prettiest picture, but boy did it taste good after that workout!)
I have a hard time doing “savoury” for breakfast. I often think up of some really great combo’s for a breakfast sandwiches or frittatas using sweet potato, but if I don’t have oats with some fruit or something else that is nice and sweet I don’t know what I’d do I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but apparently it decides to come out when it’s breakfast time
So, I decided to go savoury for lunch seeing as how my breakfasts are never of the savoury type
Lunch was something completely new to me!
Savoury oats! I was a “savoury oats” newbie until today, but I am glad I ended that streak!
New found love?
Savoury oats. Definitely.
I began with 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup water, and 1 serving steel cut oats. This is how I make my steel cut oats in the morning I love the addition of almond milk to the water. It makes a much creamier bowl of oats
For savoury oats; however, I added 1 TBSP nutritional yeast once my oats were almost fully cooked!
Stir, stir, stir until the nooch is all melty and wonderful
Remove from heat and pour into bowl
A nice cheesy bowl of oats ready to be enjoyed
What about the toppings?!?
I topped my oats off with the perfect amount of chopped cherry tomatoes and a big hunk of avocado.
My savoury oats were accompanied with a chicken breast
Can you say perfection?
I will definitely be making these again Very soon I might add.
Have you had savoury oats before? How did you top them?
Do you like having savoury breakfasts?
Does anyone have an amazing frittata recipe for me to try?
Adios amigos! More studying must take place!
