I have a cavity :(
It will be filled next Friday.
Until then, I will be paranoid about making it bigger.
But you know that won’t stop me from satisfying my sweet tooth.
I just need to remember, floss every night.
(Side note: I didn’t admit to my dentist that I had froyo 95% of my days at college this past year, for he wouldn’t have been too proud of me.)
On the way back from the dentist I stopped by Whole Foods, because grocery shopping is therapeutic to me. I didn’t buy anything, even though Lauren was trying to persuade me to buy her some roasted peanut butter. Their machines that manually grind the actual peanuts are SO awesome. We always try to sneak little swipes of peanut butter from the dispensers… We spread germs, sorry ’bout it!
Honoring my sweet tooth, last night I decided to have a sweet snack.
This. Was. Great.
Berry Egg Oats
- 1/4 cup oats
- 1/8 cup oat bran
- 1/4 cup egg whites
- ~1 cup hot water
- 1 Nature Valley Oats ‘n Honey bar
- 1/3 cup frozen raspberries
- 1/3 cup fresh strawberries
- 1 T SugarFree Chocolate Syrup
- 1 T SugarFree Maple Syrup
The egg whites added SO much volume, and you couldn’t even taste them. More protein for my muscles, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!
In other news, I developed a wonderful incline workout that somehow makes time FLY by! It’s for those days when running isn’t gonna happen…

Speed can be increased or decreased accordingly.
While at Whole Foods, I did happen to pick up a copy of their free “deliciousliving” June 2011 publication. I read it while completing the above workout and found lots of great info that I will be sharing over the next few days.
In honor of my berry packed oatmeal, here are some of the noteworthy facts about berries I found in the magazine.
“Berry Benefits per 1 cup” (Source: Lisa Turner)
|Blackberries||62||31% DV||31% DV||9% DV||Guard against cancer|
|Raspberries||64||54% DV||32% DV||6% DV||Inhibit colon cancer|
|Blueberries||84||24% DV||14% DV||2% DV||Protect brain from aging|
|Strawberries||49||149% DV||12% DV||9% DV||Help prevent atherosclerosis|
Q4U: Which of the berries listed above (black, rasp, blue, straw) is your favorite?
If I’m eating them raw, I think blueberries are my favorite. However, in oatmeal, I have been loving frozen raspberries that defrost to perfection!!!
