For breakfast yesterday, I had oatmeal with sliced banana, blueberries and almond butter. I have further perfected my oatmeal preparation technique by adding one final step: adding an extra splash of almond milk at the end. It makes it extra creamy and cools it down a bit.
For lunch, I had a tropical green smoothie. I blended together the following ingredients and pretended like I was on a beach instead of stuck in below-zero weather:
- 1 6-oz container pineapple Chobani Greek yogurt
- 1 cup frozen pineapple
- 2/3 cup frozen mango
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1-2 big handfuls spinach
