thanks for the support, guys. i'm indeed truckin' along. i did OK yesterday-- a couple extra snacks probably made up for the lack of a real breakfast.

i went on a run, somewhat sleepily this morning, but it ended up feeling great. i stole a fabulous oat bran concoction from lauren of food for living. thanks, lauren! here's what i did:

in the pot:
  • 1/3 c oat bran
  • 1/3 c vanilla soymilk, 2/3 c water (i usually do 1/3 c - thought i'd experiment)
  • 1/2 banana (wish it was riper, but at least it wasn't green!)
  • 2 T dried cranberries
mixed-in after cooking:
  • 1 T flaxmeal
  • a couple drops lemon extract
  • 1/2 honest foods cran lemon zest bar (inspiration for the bowl!)
  • spoonful almond butter
the lemon extract was awesome. i added just enough to add a fresh lemonyness, but not too much to overpower the oat bran/other flavors.

today's plan: appointment, work, teaching, home by 9:15...
