A new breakfast and some leftovers...

I wanted something new for breakfast, so I combined the oatmeal recipes at Kath Eats and The Fitnessista for some Pumpkin Oats. I used 1/2 c. each water, milk, rolled oats, and canned pure pumpkin along with a dash of salt, 1 T. ground flax, a splash of vanilla extract, two packets of Splenda, and cinnamon to taste. I also added 1 T. soy protein powder since I wasn't going to have an egg this morning. Just cook it all in a pot on medium until it the oats soak up the liquid, somewhere between 5-10 minutes, stirring about once a minute.

It was so filling, I actually didn't finish the bowl. I covered it and put it in the fridge for tomorrow morning.

Today was my last day at my old job, but I didn't pack my lunch because I only had to work until 1:30. I did slice two kiwis to take with me for a snack:

I also had a piece of string cheese with my kiwi. When I got home, I had leftover potato soup from yesterday with an orange:

It was every bit as good as yesterday. I did have to add a little extra broth before reheating because the soup became very thick in the refrigerator overnight.

I have a trip to Whole Foods planned for this afternoon. I'm excited because I've never been there before, but it won't be a regular thing since it takes over 30 minutes to drive there, and I have the Fresh Market and EarthFare both within five miles.

I will also be experimenting with breakfast ideas this evening. I start my new job next week, and I need some pre-made items that I can either grab on the way out or just warm up in the mornings.
