Due to my frugal Saturday night…I got 10 hours of sleep!
Last night, I just kind of hung around the house and got some little things done. Cleaning? Check. Laundry? Check. Job applications? Check. Trashy TV? Check.
For some reason, I wasn’t very hungry last night. Since this happens like NEVER, I took advantage and munched on my last Heart Thrive vegan energy bar in Raisin Spice. These bars were good – dense, chewy and flavorful, if not a little bit dry. Paired with tea or coffee however, they are really good. I think my favorite flavor was the Raisin Spice…
I took a short brain-break walk later in the night, then came back and made Green Monster #2! This recipe was much simpler and basic than my first one but still good!
1 cup Oat Dream oat milk
1 large handful baby spinach
2 handfuls of ice
Now that is one green monster! With all the banana-ness going on, I don’t think I could really taste the oat milk. I might have to have it with some cereal or something to give a proper review. Didn’t hurt the smoothie though, so far so good!
I made three slight modifications: organic nonfat plain yogurt (for Greek yogurt); 1 tbsp. raw cane sugar (for the brown sugar); and 1 tsp. of cinnamon (instead of 1/2 – I LOVE my cinnamon!). Served with some joe & skim milk, and smothered with about 1 tbsp. raw almond butter, 1/2 sliced banana and a drizzle of maple syrup: HEAVEN! Seriously, these pancakes are my new favorite. Try. them. now.
Does getting lots of sleep sometimes make other people MORE tired? I think that is what’s happening to me right now. I need to wake up, scoot my buns outside and enjoy another glorious, sunny Sunday. Enjoy!
