Good morning Lovelies.
Sorry about the delayed post, I had an early morning Doctor’s appointment that I needed to attend. The best thing about 8:00am Doctors appointments? No wait! I was in and out in 30 minutes!
Since I had the early appointment I woke up extra early so I could squeeze in a 30 minute speed run on the treadmill. I waivered between 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5 the whole run and felt great.
Too make breakfast quick and easy this morning, I prepared it last night.
I have been wanting to try Gina’s Famous Breakfast Cookie for a while now, but with an aversion to bananas and oatmeal I have been putting it on hold. In the spirit of trying something new for breakfast I decided today was the perfect time to try one.
Last night I mixed together 1/2 cup of Oats, 2 Tablespoons of Applesauce, 2 Tablespoons Cashew Butter, 1/8 cup Non-Fat Milk, Cinnamon, Blueberries and mini Chocolate Chips. I put it in the fridge over night and topped it with a ripe Plum this morning.
I was a little wary because it didn’t harden as much as I was hoping, but after one bite I was sold (I think it was the chocolate chips) It was really tasty and a wonderful new addition to my morning routine. I think next time I would use less milk and hope that it would get a little harder, but all in all I approve!
Since my appointment was so quick I realized I had time to stop at the Starbucks on the way to work to pick up an addictive Tea Latte. I ordered the Non-Fat Vanilla Roobios and asked for no sugar to be added.
Once I got in the car on my merry way and took my first sip I realized this drink was way to sweet to be sugar free. After a quick glance on the cup I realized they had added the Classic Syrup to the drink.
I am so paranoid about messed up drink and food orders I was so bummed to realize my drink had a ton of extra sugar to it. I could feel the sugar coating the back of my throat and leaving a sweet residue. yuck!
As I hate to waste food and had paid close to $3.00 for the drink I finished it at work, but I was not a happy Starbucks customer this morning. Now I will just have to pay extra attention to the drinks I order to make sure I get them the way I like.
Is anyone else paranoid about not getting what they want when they order food or drinks?
Ok I have quite a load of meetings today and tomorrow. Wish me luck!
