Every week when I go grocery shopping, I look at the cocoa-roasted almonds, think about how good they would be and how much I want them, and then move on because I can't bear the thought of spending $5 on nuts. And the weird thing is, I really don't even like nuts. Don't even think about putting them in my salads, food, cookies, brownies, etc. But I told ya, I've been craving protein like crazy... beans, nuts, peanut butter... I think about protein more than anything else these days. Isn't that bizarre?
Anyway, Sunday I finally broke down and bought myself some dang nuts.
They taste even better than I could have dreamed.
I got these, too. Yum!!!
Moral of the story? Nuts are worth $5. But please don't mix them in my other food.
Also, I've been on a quest for the perfect oatmeal/breakfast. One that keeps me full and satisfied and doesn't make me want to shove hamburgers and fries in my face by lunchtime. I've tried a few different kinds of things, and I think I've stumbled upon the answer.
Normally, I don't like any of Kashi's products. It tastes like sticks and gravel to me. But this stuff is just incredible. I stir in a little extra honey and cinnamon, top with half a banana and just a bit of peanut butter and I have the perfect breakfast. Protein, whole grains AND fruits! And I am more than full until lunch time.
If you like oatmeal/hot cereal, try it!
Another thing I am obsessed with (the idea of) right now and reading a lot about is nutritional yeast. Supposedly it has a flavor similar to parmesan, is a complete protein and super high in B vitamins. I ordered some yesterday and can't wait to start putting it on my veggies. I hope I love it!
