Let’s take a look at what I ate yesterday, as in, the day my son went back to school.
I usually make four servings of oatmeal at a time and store them in the refrigerator so that they are ready to eat each day. I noticed I was down to my last serving so I made a fresh pot super early in the morning.
Before I covered the oatmeal to cool, it boiled over for the first time in a really long time! I am typically real good at keeping the oats contained in the pot, I don’t know how it happened.
Early morning first breakfast bowl of oatmeal with bananas and cinnamon.
If you missed my post on the health benefits of cinnamon last week, check it out here.
After completing the Pure Barre Pure Results workout from the comforts of my suddenly dim in the morning living room because the sun is rising later and later, my son was up and ready for breakfast.
He knew right away why I took the picture of his plate. #firstdayofschoolbreakfast
He doesn’t let me stand at the bus stop anymore but just like last year, I watched the bus stop from the gym while on the elliptical.
Can you see the bus through the blinds?
I felt like something cold after my workout so I blended up my second breakfast into smoothie bowl form.
In the mix:
- Cooked (cold) oatmeal
- Frozen blueberries
- Frozen pineapple
- Skoop B-Strong
- Almond Milk
- Extra peanut butter on top
I worked from Panera for the first time in a while.
That is until they cut off my WiFi (so annoying) at which point I went home for lunch.
I am just realizing that I don’t think I had a snack between eating lunch and preparing dinner (I snack on dinner as I make it).
I have really been enjoying my spiralizer by the way.
It’s really easy to do and only take a minute or so to spiralize one zucchini.
For dinner I made a zucchini primavera with roasted sweet potatoes thrown in too with a little mozzarella cheese and nutritional yeast on top <- good source of B vitamins for us meatless eaters.
So I had the first day of school banana chocolate chip cookies all planned in my head as my son’s dessert last night but then he wanted to go for frozen yogurt and I couldn’t say no because he had the “best first day ever” and I needed the 411 on it all.
Do the cool kids still say the 411 or do kids today not even know what 411 is because they just ask Siri for information?
Don’t worry, the cookies didn’t go to waste. I had enough for both of us– beyond addicting.

Do you use the Siri button on your phone often? I never ever do!
Are you a spiralizer? What do you make the most with it?
If you have kids, do they buy lunch at school or do they bring from home?
