I finally did get to the grocery store on Tuesday!

It was doing this outside….blah……

I decided we needed at least a few staples….Eggs, Chicken, Turkey, Fruits and Veggies!

Before the store…..

Would you believe that after all of that grocery shopping, I still ended up having the last 1/2 of a Turkey Burger for lunch, and I pulled Chili out of the freezer for my dinner last night!

While shopping, I was grabbing things and not really planning out any meals in my head. At least we won’t go hungry!

Here are yesterday’s eats….

Pre-Breakfast

Frothy Coffee

1 PPV

Breakfast

Berry Berry Oatmeal

4 PPV

This satisfied my sweet tooth and carb cravings! I will be making this a lot!

I made my oatmeal following my Blueberry Oatmeal recipe…….

Ingredients

1/2 C Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats (Any Quick Cooking Oats will do.)

1 packet Raw Stevia (or sweetener of your choice)

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

1 C. Frozen Blueberries

3/4 Boiling Water

(Additional 1/2 cup of mixed berries for the Berry Berry Oatmeal. I used Blackberries and Raspberries)

 

Directions

Put Oatmeal, sweetener and cinnamon in a bowl.

Cook frozen blueberries in the microwave in a microwave safe dish for 1-2 minutes. This gets them warm and juicy! Add the additional 1/2 cup of mixed berries to the blueberries and stir. This will heat them up just a bit.

Add the berries and the boiling water to the oatmeal mixture and stir. Let set for about 2 minutes, then give it all a good stir. The raspberries seemed to melt nicely and made this beautiful jam in my oatmeal!

It was Berry Berry Delicious!
