Fried Oatmeal!?

There are probably about 101 things to do with oatmeal. This one happened on accident! I give you Fried Oatmeal:

  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1/2 tbsp of Smart Balance butter
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp Almond Butter to top

So I set out to make some "Oatmeal Pancakes" for dinner. Now, they're not really pancakes, 'cause they do not require wheat flour. How I usually make them is...Place the oats in a circle in a small non stick coated pan fry pan. Beat the egg whites and poor over the top. Heat through, and flip once. Top with fruit, butter, sugar and other toppings.

But here's what really happened...I started out cooking the oats with the eggs, but then DUN DUN DUN they stuck! So I just stirred them up in a sort of scramble, and added the blueberries to the fry pan.

I made my own "syrup." By melting the butter and sugar in the microwave and pouring it over the top. I also added almond butter.

This made a pretty good dinner last night.

After dinner I counted a 1/2 hour long water balloon fight with our youth group as my workout.

I must confess that I ate 3 Oreos and two pop tarts yesterday. :( That is not so helpful for the healthy eating. But I am not going to stress out about it. I'm just going to do better today! Oh and I lost a pound! Woo Hoo. I am back down to 170.4. YAY!

My stomach is feeling a little better today. It at least didn't wake me up last night. Thank you, both for caring :) LOL.

Well folks, tonight I leave for my best friend's house in Roseburg. She's planning a little mini escape for us. I'm excited.
