Great Quote

The new tea I bought at Trader Joe's this past weekend has these great little quotes on each tea bag.  I particularly loved this one.  It goes something like this, "The trust that others place in you is grace."  The quote had no author it was simply that tiny message.  I really liked it because I try to be as caring and kind to everyone that I come in contact with.  

I seriously debated having oatmeal for dinner tonight, that would have been the 3rd time today!  I opted for a loaded bowl of yogurt and some left over baked beans.  I know odd combination!  But they both tasted great, from what I could tell!

I have no real big recipes for you today, since all I have eaten is oatmeal!  Although this afternoons oatmeal was particularly yummy!  

I had a bowl of oats (steel cut) with blueberries, raspberries, a half a banana, peanut butter  puffins and a tablespoon of Better n' peanut butter.  I am seriously in love with that stuff!  

This peanut butter is lower in fat and sodium then normal peanut butter, and has about half the calories.  Better n' Peanut butter also has a smooth creamy texture.  Better N' Peanut Butter also isn't very salty which I enjoy.  This peanut butter melts perfectly over a warm bowl of oats! So good!  I added a little splenda to this bowl, the berries seemed a bit tart to me!

I have been thinking up a few recipes in my head, including Mediterranean Stuffed Peppers (with Cous Cous) and fillings to go inside Crepes.  I also want to come up with a great green bean recipe, since I bought a giant bag of green beans at Trader Joe's!  This is what I thought about most of the day.  I can't wait to be able to taste things again! 

Stay tuned for more, and remember to live Happily Ever Healthy
