Working With Bloobs (WIAW)

04/13/2011 at 10:57 am 90 comments

Good Morning Bloggies!!

Hope you’re having a fabulous Wednesday 🙂

I woke up at 8am today and headed straight to the gym for an intense workout which consisted of:

  • Bench Press
  • Arnold  Press
  • Push Ups

My arms are about to give out on me, I am incredibly sore (but in a good way ;))

After my workout, breakfast was calling my name. Nothing better than some oatmeal, especially blueberry banana oatmeal!

It’s been a long time since I used up some bloobs and today was the day 🙂

I made my oats with a ratio of:

1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup almond milk, 5g flax and pb2. You can never have too much pb 😉 I stirred in 1/3 nanner and 1 oz of bloobs towards the end of cooking.

I topped it with peanuts, granola, and cinnamon raisin pb 😀 Happy tummy

In continuation of WIAW I’ll give you some more picture of some noms I made…Yes I used nom…It wasn’t a typo 😉

Chicken and Cheese quesadilla! On the side there is a cherry hot pepper sauce which is amazing and cilantro which my bf put on the plate for pretty effect. I didn’t touch it lol

A little dessert must always follow

Frozen strawberries and bananas blended up with a little yogurt, topped with Emerald Cocoa Roasted Almonds. This is how you do almonds right 😉

If you haven’t check out Jenn’s WIAW do it now! 😀

Peas and Crayons

 

  • Have you tried Emerald Cocoa Almonds? If you haven’t I suggest you run out now to get some 😉
