Is that a creepy title or what? I’ll get to that in a second, but first let’s cover breakfast!
This morning was a hot and delicious bowl of banana bread protein oatmeal.
I changed up my original recipe a bit by adding liquid egg whites to increase the volume, fluffiness, and protein content of my oats. My modified recipe included:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- ~3 Tbsp liquid egg whites
- 1 serving Vanilla protein powder
- 1 frozen banana (3/4 of banana sliced finely and stirred into the oats so it melts, the other 1/4 sliced on top after cooking)
- 2 generous shakes of cinnamon
- 1 Tbsp peanut butter
It never fails to amaze me how only 1/3 cup of oats can be amplified so much by the addition of egg whits and a banana. The oatmeal becomes light and fluffy, yet super filling!
Yesterday my friend, Hadley sent me this internet quiz which only takes 5 minutes and is supposedly able to predict “who you are” in only 20 questions. I was skeptical, and so I completed the quiz on my phone while walking down to squash yesterday afternoon. The questions were pretty easy, ranging from “how long does it typically take you to get ready in the morning?” to, “do you cook more than twice a week?“.
I think the hardest question for me was, “pick a Pixar character”. I originally put down Merida from Brave, but then decided I should probably actually watch that movie before assuming I would like her character. I ended up picking Boo from Monsters Inc :D. (I also look a lot more like Boo than Merida).
The end result of my 20-question quiz was fairly accurate:
Okay, I guess it’s pretty generic, but they only got a couple things that are dead wrong: I don’t own a pet (yet), and I am not balancing a promising career (yet). As for the “cute nose”, and “smart, calculated, funny and imaginative”, well I can’t really say, since that’s up to interpretation.
Later today I’m going to Unite Fitness for their free trial! I’m really excited and also nervous, since it’s supposed to be one of the best group fitness functional training centres in Philadelphia. Stay tuned for that!
Anyway, I’ve been snacking on carrots and hummus now, and the bag is nearly gone, so I think it’s time to make some lunch!
