This is it folks – it’s the big “First Day of School!” If only I had some snazzy Lisa Frank folders to tote along with me.
I’m always pretty good at prepping food ahead of time towards the beginning of the year. It’s actually scary how organized I got myself last night:
- Clothes ironed and outfit + shoes laid out
- Bags packed
- Lunch made and packed
- Breakfast prepped and ready to go
- Coffee maker set to brew
- Blog post half ready to go
In preparation for my early morning, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to make some overnight oats.
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup vanilla almond milk
- 1/4 water
- 1/2 mashed banana
- Golden raisins
- Cinnamon Date Manna Bread
- Cinnamon & Pumpkin Pie Spice (it IS that time of year now!)
Along with my overnight oats, I’m enjoying another delicious mug of Pumpkin Spice coffee. I still can’t get over the “amazingness” of this stuff. SO GOOD.
I prepped everything last night, making this morning’s lunch packing ridiculously easy. I wish I could say I know I’ll stick with this kind of on-the-ball routine all year long!
I put together a fresh mixed-veggie salad, complete with spring mix, cukes, grape tomatoes, red onion, carrots, & corn off the cob.
A slice of my whole wheat bread from The Fresh Market.
A pear, also from The Fresh Market (I really wish I could remember the name of this thing – does anyone else have an idea???)
I’m also packing a Pecan Pie Larabar with me, as I’m planning a trip to the gym after work and will definitely need a pre-workout snack.
Question for the Day:
Ask Me Anything!!
With the start of the new school year, it’s likely that my meal posts are probably going to be a little less frequent than they have been all summer. With that being said, I’m definitely going to be looking for some other topics that I’ll be able to schedule ahead of time.
So to start things off, I figured that now would be a great time to do another “Ask Me Anything” compilation. Feel free to comment on this post or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions you may have. *If you haven’t already checked out the Q&A’s page, go ahead and give it a peek!*
I’ll work on answering your questions throughout the week and post the answers periodically. Let’s have some FUN!
