So what better way to start the day than a nice hearty bowl of oatmeal. No one appreciates a grumbling stomach when they're trying to focus on finishing their exam! However, today I switched it up a little...instead of stewing chopped apple into the blend, I used banana! And boy, let me tell you, was it ever a switch up. The taste was incredible...the sliced banana literally melted into the warm oats --- but not entirely; just enough to really saturate each bite with a burst of banana!
With a full stomach, I felt as prepared as I was ever going to be for my final... so off I went.
(But on a side note...I seriously recommend putting countless hours into food blogging rather than studying. It pays off! I killllllled that exam.)
By the time I got home today, I still wasn't absolutely sure about what I was going to whip up. But after perusing my cupboards, I decided on a nice bowl of quinoa [a tasty rice-like staple that is also a complete protein] with an array of roasted vegetables [sweet potato, broccoli, orange pepper, and onion] and steamed spinach!
Mmmm... it was super yummy!!! I ended up adding some tamari sauce too...because well, I like salt. Enjoy!
