Ruhu's Journal, 26 January 2013

Had a nice time with the other bachelorette wives, but we've become too tame a group in our old age! Had sushi, sashimi, seaweed salad & a few tastes of their Szechuan & Thai dishes -- all yummy! But, again, upon coming home to an empty house, wanted something sweet. As I'm my own lab rat in the midst of a diet experiment & eating sugar, dairy & wheat free, I satisfied it with a few dates & went on to read/watch tv in bed. Have to come up with a way instead to just go to bed, so am thinking about strategies to help me do so. But, am grateful that I didn't get into hubby's chocolate covered almonds or ice cream (way too cold here for that, luckily!).

Up early this morning & feeling good, already have been to spin class & the grocery store, & have a tennis match late this afternoon. Had a new great breakfast that I have to tell you about. I posted in the forums asking for suggestions of ways to add protein to oatmeal (found gluten-free steel cut oatmeal which i'm eating while I'm staying wheat free). One suggestion was to add eggs or egg whites, so today added egg whites which makes the oatmeal a fluffy consistency that I really liked! Has anyone else ever tried it?

Yesterday, I got a lot done on the work front & today until match time, will get caught up on household stuff. Thinking I'm going to try one of Panera Bread's new Power Foods menu choices from their "hidden menu" for dinner. Have you heard of it? If you're a Panera fan like I am, check it out. Here's one link to info about it --

So, off I go on my day asking first for serenity

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

And, praying, breathing, logging, posting & expressing again on this one day, meal, moment, bite & emotion at a time! xoxox

Angel Ruth~ good for you to hear to you still have the lab up & running! Have never put the eggwhite IN the oatmeal - it's an interesting thought. I do poach eggs and put on top of the oatmeal, like a layer. I guess I like the ability to taste it 'alone' OR mix it ~ maybe I'm still a 5 year old when it comes to food? LOVED the link to Panera - thank you. No, we don't have anything like that here but the photos were great ideas for my morning breakfast bowl. Hey, when you think about it, I've been doing Panera all along (putting all my food in one bowl!) Continue to enjoy your day and bachelorette weekend. I know you'll do well.

Thanks - just added two raw egg whites into my hot oatmeal so they cooked from the heat. It was fluffy and yummy!

Hmmm... i might have to try eggs in my oats. I like brown rice in my scrambled eggs.
