I have been craving oats lately, maybe because they’re helpful with lactation…? (which I’ll be needing soon!), so I’ve been playing with different ways of using them…
These soaked oatmeal pancakes were a big hit at our house! My husband couldn’t believe how good they were, and the kids gobbled them up too. Made simply with oats, water, baking powder/soda, eggs, and honey, these were also really nutritious and filling!
Later this morning, I ate a delicious papaya…
My favorite kind, taste-wise, is the Hawaiian papaya, which are typically kind of pricey, but worth it if you enjoy the fruit! I just slice mine down the center, scoop out the seeds, and eat it like I would a grapefruit.
Lunch was a two-parter…
I made a twice-baked potato, adding in some of my Lemon-Oregano Vinaigrette and raw white cheddar cheese and topping it with some non-fat plain yogurt and chopped scallions.
A bit later, I made a huge salad filled with a dark green salad mix, green leaf lettuce, red bell pepper, red cabbage, sliced fennel, radishes, cucumbers, grated carrot, raw pumpkin seeds, feta cheese, and raisins. I topped it with a creamy basil cucumber dressing that is literally making my salads crave-able!
This night, I made my Better Than Take-Out Fried Rice for dinner, topping it with a handful of toasted sesame seeds.
This makes a great, quick meal, especially when I have the rice already made!
Not really in the mood for dessert, I made myself a cup of tea to end the night…
I like mixing peppermint and ginger and then topping it with a few sprinkles of cinnamon for flavor and digestive properties.
