I still want to eat cookies but my abs have been actually hanging in there pretty good. I was thinking about New Year's Resolutions and possibly more of a lifestyle change focusing on stress management (while still getting my Master's). This past year had a lot of financial worries: car, wedding, tuition, etc. It drove me nuts just spending, fretting, and not doing a lot of things that made me particularly happy.
This oatmeal came from a few of those things: it's cheap (as $$ makes me anxious), fast (as I don't need to fret about it), and its happy carbs will up my ever seasonally lagging serotonin (why is it raining this much in December?!).
2 cups of old fashioned oatmeal
1 Tablespoon of Peanut Butter
2 cups of Silk Coconut Milk (unsweetened vanilla)
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 Tablespoon of brown sugar
In a sauce pot, heat over medium high for 2 minutes, spritz with non-stick spray and add oatmeal, cook for 1 minute and add milk, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla. Cook for about 5 minutes. Can be made the night before.
