Tag Archives: oatmeal pancakes

I really enjoyed WIAW last week and I have made it a goal to try to incorporate more of them over the summer. It’s really hard though because I am not used to taking a picture of every meal I eat throughout my day (especially snacks) and I keep missing them! Oh well. . at least you can get the gist of yesterday’s meals 🙂

Not pictured: Coffee and a handful of Kashi Go Lean Honey Almond Crunch earlier in the morning before going to the gym

I woke up craving pancakes. They just sounded so good and warm and fluffy. Since I had some leftover canned pumpkin in the fridge from making the cookie pie again for dessert last Friday night, I decided to incorporate it into my pancakes. So I followed Kath Younger’s recipe for pumpkin oatmeal pancakes. They were delicious. Soft and fluffy! I topped mine with a little greek yogurt, chopped apple and a drizzle of peanut butter.

The pancakes kept me full until around 2 pm! Even then I wasn’t very hungry so I threw together my usual greek salad with a boca burger. It was the same lunch I had last week so I didn’t bother taking a new picture

A few hours later I snacked on some of the leftover roasted red pepper feta dip and a few honey whole-wheat pretzels

Dinner was thrown together from ingredients we had on hand because we hadn’t gone grocery shopping yet. I made salads with shredded carrot, red bell pepper and a homemade carrot ginger dressing. Then I topped them with thai frozen salmon burgers that I threw under the broiler until they got crispy and brown. On the side we had mixed brown rice (not pictured).

Later in the evening I had a small glass of wine with some snap pea crisps (from TJ’s, not pictured) and a handful of Belly Flops (did you know that you can be malformed jelly beans at Big Lots?). I love Belly Flops because usually they are stuck together so if most of the “beans” are actually three or four jelly beans stuck together.

If I had to pick a favorite meal of the day it would have to be the pancakes. I was pleasantly surprised at how good and filling they were (though an argument could be made for the Belly Flops as well 🙂 ).
