Ever hear “Iâ€™m trying to be good”, in reference to eating? Ya I hear it all the time. I say it all the time too. I feel like my diet has gotten away from me a bit, and I need to get back on track. So now, I am trying to be good. Here are some of the “good” things I ate today.
Breakfast was overnight Oats. In fact, it has been every single day for about a month. I love how easy and fast it is. I also like my oats chewy and cold…weird? Maybe. Awesome? YUP
Lunch was a gorgeous kale and romaine salad with heirloom tomatoes, Beets, artichokes, pistachios, and capers….YUM
Dinner was roasted Butternut Squash and string beans! I always love roasted veggies. They remind me of french fries. I canâ€™t help but feel like Iâ€™m cheating the system when I make something that is astronomically healthier than its original.
Now, here is where it gets GOOD.
One “Free Brownie”, and my very own: Pumpkin Spice Late!
I have a confession to make…
I have never had a Starbucks pumpkin spice late. Â There I SAID IT!!!!
Here is the recipe I came up with. It is pretty much a Pumpkin Spice Creamer.
Pumpkin Spice Creamer
- 1 Cup SoDelicious Coconut Creamer
- 1/4 cup milk of choice (I used coconut milk)
- 1/4 cup plus 2 TBS canned pumpkin
- 2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 8 drops liquid stevia (you can use packets too..I would use 2-3)
In a sauce pan, heatÂ creamer and milk to a simmer. Add the remaining ingredients and stir completely. Allow all ingredients to dissolve into each other. Add to your coffee and ENJOY!!
