You read the title of this post correctly – I did not have one spoonful of oatmeal on Sunday which may be the first time in easily one year, if not two, that I missed a day of oatmeal.
I don’t even know why or how this lack of oatmeal happened! Oh wait, yes I do. I woke up Sunday morning not overly hungry yet craving a toasted English muffin.
It’s always interesting to me how the day after a long run I am either waking up nauseous starving or barely hungry. I didn’t even eat a ton on Saturday which made it more surprising to wake up Sunday morning satisfied with just half a toasted English muffin with peanut butter and blueberries.
I was up early so I had half when I woke up and then the other half two hours later, right before leaving for kickboxing. What’s funny is that I didn’t even want the second half because I wasn’t hungry but I ate it anyway because I knew that I needed more food in me in order to work out.
After kickboxing, I still wasn’t my starving self but we went for a late breakfast/brunch/early lunch at the Fuel Your Body Café which serves lots of healthy options.
I have eaten at the Fuel Your Body Café once before during which time I ordered the oatmeal but this time around, I went with the cranberry walnut salad topped with avocado which I showed you in Monday’s weekend recap post.
Since this cranberry walnut salad was technically my lunch but eaten kind of early, I was a little confused in the early afternoon. I wasn’t overly hungry but felt like I was supposed to eat something so I had a small diced apple with peanut butter, cinnamon and blueberries.
I have had been enjoying organic blueberries this week, by the way, because they were the same price as the conventional berries.
Sunday evening I made an easy power bowl of sweet potato wedges, roasted broccoli, spinach and chick peas (at bottom of bowl) topped with avocado and barbeque sauce.
After dinner I felt like another apple + peanut butter + blueberries combination. I diced up my largest granny smith apple and enjoyed every crisp bite.
And then the craving for watermelon hit, right before I sat down to watch I Am Cait. I had none left in the house, no time to get to Trader Joe’s for a giant $3.99 watermelon so a quick drive over to 7 Eleven was the only thing left to do.
A full day without oatmeal. Hmm. I can’t say I missed it but I did go right back to eating it by Monday at lunch time 🙂

Is there a specific food you eat every single day for a really long time? Oatmeal and peanut butter are my daily foods!
Are you typically hungry the day after a long run or does it hit sooner/later?
Which fruit is top of your list at the moment?
