tropical flavor~~

Early dinner strategy worked out. I slept for 8.30 without interruption!!! wooooo......that's a marathon of sleeping for me.

As you can imagine, how happy and energized I am now. So, I made myself the tropical oatmeal inspired by Jennifer. Although I forgot to put cinnamon and flax and added my new favorite oatmeal topping: cottage cheese! So, mine was made with
  • 1/3 cup of pre-made steel cut oats
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 tbsp egg white
  • 2-3 chunk of frozen pineapples
  • 1 tbsp of coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp of grounded almond (I want to finish it ASAP so I can get almond butter)

It was so unique flavor, the mix of citrus fruit and coconut! Banana and cottage just gave it the creamy consistency. I enjoyed it so much~~~ (and I'm happy because I'm skipping sweetener to sweet my oatmeal, it lets me taste better others ingredients)

And my cup of coffee (with splenda unfortunately), hopefully one day I can enjoy it plain too.

Sounds yummy. This reminds me of a healthy, oatmeal version of a dessert I love called "Hawaiian Cream Cake." I bet this would be amazing with some macadamias in place of the almonds.
