Today I was all about some good ol’ spring cleaning.  I desperately needed to go through my closet to “purge” (remove any clothes I haven’t worn in the past year, and thus will never likely wear again).  From there, I was inspired to do the same with all of my costume jewelry and the clothes in my dresser.  I ended up with a huge garbage bag full-o-stuff for Goodwill.  It felt good to de-clutter my life a bit!  🙂  Then, it was time to sit and do some work at the computer…

…with my delicious Sun Warrior protein shake!  Followed by some carrots and hummus.

I kept the veggie train going with a delicious Green Giant mix this evening.

Overall, I stuck to my plan yet again today, but I did swap out the evening chocolatey overnight oats for my old recipe (oats, almond butter, banana, almond milk).  I think having the blueberry/chocolate smoothie in the afternoon and then the chocolate overnight oats was making me a little tired of my Hershey’s powdered dark chocolate, so it was a good switch-up.

    • Haha I started reading all about them on other bloggers’ sites (look here for a more thorough explanation: http://www.pbfingers.com/2012/01/09/how-to-make-overnight-oats/), so I decided to give them a try myself. Basically, the night before you want to eat this treat, you mix your ingredients of choice in a container (for example, I had 1/3 C old fashioned oats, 1/3 C almond milk, 1/2 mashed banana, 1 TBSP almond butter) and you simply store the container in your refrigerator overnight. Most people eat it for breakfast the next morning, but I think it’s so delicious that it actually serves as my “dessert” many evenings. It’s as simple as that–cold oatmeal! No cooking or baking necessary, just a little mixing. It sounded so strange to me at first, but I’ve grown to love my overnight oats mixtures!
