I’m having a very relaxing Saturday here in Columbus. I just finished dominating this bowl of spaghetti squash for lunch…
About 1/4 of a spaghetti squash, Classico Tomato & Basil marinara sauce, Lightlife’s Gimme Lean sausage style crumbles, fat free mozzarella & a sprinkle of parmesan. So good.
(Side Note: Spaghetti and marinara sauces tend to be high in sugar. Classico Tomato & Basil sauce is delicious and only has 4g sugar per 1/2 cup serving. )
What I’m really excited to share with you though, is what I ate for breakfast this morning…
Berry Cobbler Baked Oatmeal
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 t cinnamon
- 1 packet sweetener (I used Sun Crystals)
- 1 cup of frozen fruit (I used a combination of: blackberries, sliced peaches, tart cherries and blueberries.)
- 3 egg whites
- Sugar free maple syrup: optional.
- Preheat oven to 350*
- Mix oats, water, cinnamon and sweetener and microwave for about 1 minute.
- Defrost berries in microwave.
- Add egg whites to oatmeal mixture and stir well.
- Spray a small glass ramekin with non-stick spray.
- Add berries and top with oatmeal.
- Bake for 30 minutes.
- Top with sugar free maple syrup if desired.
It reminded me of a cross between berry cobbler and french toast. And it is my new favorite way to eat oatmeal. Too bad I’m about to be oven-less in a couple of weeks at school…I guess this will have to be reserved for weekend breakfasts at home!
After breakfast I lounged around my house until deciding I needed to do something with myself. I threw on my workout clothes, drove to my gym and then….got sidetracked.
That’s right folks, my gym is conveniently located next to Target. For my spending pleasure…
I perused the aisles for quite some time. I found leggings to work out in for $5 each…score! Compared to $21.99 a pair for the leggings in the workout section. Call me cheap, I prefer resourceful.
And don’t worry (I know you were) after Target, I made it to my original destination. I kept my workout easy today and just did some cardio. It matched yesterday’s cardio workout exactly except I did 40 minutes instead of 30 and called it good.
I’ll be going now, I have a few episodes of The Secret Life of the American Teenager to finish watching on Hulu. I personally can’t think of anything that would make this Saturday any better.
…Okay, maybe some more french toast/berry cobbler oats…
Enjoy your Saturday!
What is your favorite weekend breakfast?
