What I ate Wednesday

Ever hear “I’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 can’t help but feel like I’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.  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, heat 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!!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 1 cup fresh brewed hot coffee
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 packets stevia
  • 2-3 TBS Pumpkin spice Creamer
  • 1 TBS canned pumpkin

**When Brewing coffee, add 1/2 tsp of Pumpkin pie spice to the grounds. Mix the spice and grounds together. You get fresh brewed coffee with a hint of pumpkin spice flavor!

Put all ingredients in a large mason jar and shake well to combine. Pour in your favorite Mug and ENJOY!!!!

Yum… pumpkin
