Hello loves and happy Wednesday!

♥ ♥ ♥

Usually I say time has been flying, but boy has time been dragging!

Not in an all bad way, but since I am not as busy, I actually get to enjoy my time and not worry about everything getting done.

I’ve mentioned a few times about my battle with boredom, but as of late (and of course as things are about to change again) I am embracing my time off.

Getting a little crafty. Cleaning. Just getting things done and not rushing.

If you read my baking adventures post, you know I’ve had some free time in the kitchen. Time to actually prepare meals.

So I know the theme for What I Ate Wednesday is sensible snacking, I thought I would show you some of the lovely things I’ve been able to create with my extra time.

This really isn’t a new dish, more of a twist on an old favorite.

I haven’t really had oatmeal in forever. I don’t know. I just got in a rut of other things. And with it being so hot oatmeal didn’t always pop in my mind for breakfast. Solution? Over night oats of course.

And this was one tasty batch.

No really. It was pretty amazing.

Chocolate Pumpkin Protein Overnight Oats

1/2 cup rolled oats

1 cup almond milk (I used Almond Breeze Unsweetened Chocolate)

1/2 cup pumpkin

1 tbsp protein powder

1 tbsp cocoa

vanilla extract to taste (I used about 1/2 tbsp)

sweetener of choice to taste (stevia, sugar, maple syrup, agave)

Um yea. Tasty.

If you like thicker overnight oats  you can add greek yogurt as well.

Topped with banana and the local granola I picked up at the farmers market.

This will probably happen again soon. Very soon.

To stay on the snacking theme. I did whip up a batch of these puppies.

I got the idea from Lindsay at The Lean Green Bean.

Now mine aren’t as pretty, but I promise you they were just as tasty.

I didn’t have chocolate on hand, so I did the next best thing.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting.

I took some PB2 and Sun Warrior chocolate protein powder, made a little frosting and dipped the yogurt bites into it and let it freeze some more.

In my frozen bites were Chobani Pomegranate greek yogurt, local granola, dipped in the above mentioned concoction.

These were an awesome little snack to grab.

Another not so pretty, but delicious recent adventure?

Super simple. Super delish.

Buffalo Chicken Wrap.

Ok honestly, I had no intentions of taking a picture of this, but it was so good and I knew I wanted to share it, that I took this mid-eating.

I’m sorry. And a bit embarrassed. But I will tell you, it was delicious.

I’m just going to leave it at that.

(ps I tried Trader Joe’s rice tortilla’s for the first time. Ah-mazing. What don’t I love at Trader Joe’s? Seriously.)

I whipped up some ranch dressing using a plain Chobani and ranch mix. Oh. Amazing.

I love ranch.

Yea. Secret fat kid right here.

I hope everyone has a lovely rest of their week. I am going to enjoy the rest of my time off, because in a week. Things will be crazy again.
