Peaches and Creamy Oatmeal

I woke up this morning and hopped on the elliptical for 45 minutes.  I watched my DVRed Biggest Loser while working out- I love working out to that show!  After working out, I whipped up some breakfast.

Oats, peaches, and flax oatmeal

Mayan Cocoa Spiced Tea- the best tea!

Breakfast was 239 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 8 grams of fiber.

I’m off to go shower since I have lunch with Kath at Cupps today!

    I just clicked on your link from Kath’s page, and I love your blog! I am a college sophomore and vegan as well, so we’re kind of in the same boat! Mind if I add you to my blog roll? (I just started my own about a week ago!)

    what a delicious combo! can’t wait to try it!. if you don’t mind me asking… do you find that you’re usually satisfied after a smaller sized bfast (as opposed to kath’s usual 400-500 cal meals)? also, i know you are trying to lose weight (so am i) do you have a target BMI or weight or something? what is your main goal, besides eating healthier. i’d love to hear your input . have fun with KATH!!!!!!!

    trustmyintuition- I don’t mind at all! Thanks so much 🙂

    Andrea- I am satisfied with my breakfast, oatmeal really fills me up! I don’t post everything I eat though. For example, today I had a handful of grapes that I didn’t take a picture of. After my vacation this weekend, I am going to start posting more so people can see EXACTLY what I eat 🙂

    I have a ‘special’ weight I would like to see but it really comes down to what I look like and how I feel about myself. I think the way you look and feel is better than a number on the scale!

    Thanks for reading, Ally

    (and sorry, for some reason both of your comments went into my spam folder! I de-spammed you!)

    Your oatmeal looks so good and creamy! how exactly did you make it?

  6. veganseat said

    Thanks April! Here are the steps to my oatmeal

    -In a nonstick pot, add 1/2 cup quick cook oats, 1 tbs milled flax seeds, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk.
    -Turn the stove onto medium-high heat.
    -While the oats start to cook, I cut up the peach (if using banana, I put it in with step one)
    -Stir the oatmeal and throw the peaches in. At this point, I usually turn down the burners to about medium-low.
    -Continue to cook for a good 5-8 minutes, stirring every now and then to make sure your oats don’t stick

    Pour into your bowl and enjoy!

  8. veganseat said

    Ah! Sorry, I must have had oatmeal on the brain! I meant to type unsweetened almond milk.

    Hi! I just discovered your blog today through Kath’s post…I am so excited that I have another blog to follow! I think we could exchange some great ideas. Are you a college sophomore as well?

  11. veganseat said

    Hi Caroline! I’m actually a senior in High School! I would love to exchange ideas some time soon 🙂

    April- I don’t find it hard since I’ll make the food regardless to rather I have a blog or not. I actually find this blog quite fun, not difficult!
