Tofu Shirataki Noodles, frozen stir fry vegetables, baby spinach, 1 serving lite firm tofu, and Bragg Liquid Aminos
Which became this:
I love me some aminos :) I spritzed some Bragg Liquid Aminos on my veggies, tofu, and noodles. I did not miss sodium packed soy sauce plus I definitely consumed the 10 amino acids that I can't produce plus the extra 6 aminos that I can produce. I hope my proteins are happy!
Now I can eat a bowl of oats and banana every single day especially with some chia seeds and dark chocolate dreams (it's like dessert for breakfast). But I've been getting hungry less than an hour later. I drink plenty of water (and coffee...trust me, don't come between me and my coffee) so I don't think hydration has been the problem. So I decided to experiment with protein powder so I searched my blogs and discovered on Jarrow Brown Rice Protein Powder from the Fitnessita:
I added 2.5 T (55 calories, 12 grams protein) plus 1 tsp chia seeds to my oatmeal mixture along with a huge banana for some fructose sweetness and potassium. I'll keep y'all posted how the protein powder effects my morning hunger.
Do you ever fall into a food rut and how do you climb out? Any suggestions for filling additions to my oatmeal?
