This week is just F-L-Y-I-N-G by. Can’t believe tomorrow is Friday already!
This morning I was craving something warm and peanut-buttery for breakfast. I pulled a Mama lupe low carb tortilla out of the freezer to let it thaw out. Then I topped it with 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s Crunchy Almond Butter and some sliced strawberries.
I wrapped it up into a little burrito and put on the george foreman grill until it was hot and the shell was crispy. Then I wrapped the little guy up in foil and stuck him in my purse.
I got to work about 20 minutes later, and the wrap was still nice and hot and gooey.
This was just delicious. So simple, and so delicious!
Side note: If you are obsessed with freezing things like me, before you freeze the tortillas put a piece of parchment paper or wax paper between each one. That way you can easily grab 1 tortilla from the freezer at a time (and they won’t all be frozen into one tortilla blob).

OO! That’s right, Overnight Oats!
I typically use quick oats when I make overnight oats, but this time I tried them with Bob’s Red Mill Thick Rolled Oats instead. Last night I threw the following into a bowl in the fridge:
- 1/2 cup Bob’s red mill thick oats (uncooked)
- 1/2 cup Almond breeze unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tsp brown sugar
This morning, I topped the oats with strawberries and blueberries:
The rolled oats have a different consistency than quick oats. They really keep their oat texture and are somewhat chewy:
These were sooooo yummmy. If I had to choose, I’d pick quick oats over rolled oats, but I’d be happy to eat either one 🙂

Healthified Tuna Salad Lettuce Wrap! This was one of those times were I just kept adding things to the bowl until I found something tasty:
- 1 can tuna
- s&P, rpf, celery seed, dill weed
- 3 tbsp greek oikos
- 1 big squirt wasabi mustard
- couple drops lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped white onion
- 1 chopped pickle (that’s how my dad makes it!)
I made a lettuce wrap out of the tuna salad and also had some cucumber salad on the side, which was leftover from last night’s gyro dinner.

For dessert, I had a little unsweetened applesauce with some cinnamon. When I say little, I mean about 2 spoonfuls.. 🙂 (Leftovers from the big fat flop protein cakes I made)
Good news! I think my phone is almost fully recovered! 🙂
