I rarely eat oatmeal but this morning I was in the mood for something warm and comforting: Choco-vanilla banana oats!

Choco-vanilla banana oats

I made this with:

  • 1/3C rolled oats
  • 1/2C 1% milk
  • ~1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp flaxseed
  • 1/2 banana
  • mixed in 1 TB Stonyfield vanilla yogurt once cooked to make it all creamy!

Lunch was just leftover soup. Still too spicy! I added 2TB light sour cream and chives for a garnish.

Soup + Pita

Snack was one of my all time favourite fruits. A persimmon!

These take me back to when I was a little girl visiting my grandparents in northern Italy. My grandfather had persimmon and fig trees and in the autumn, I would climb the trees and sit up on the branches eating them! 🙂

The easiest way to eat a persimmon is (when ripe) pinch the top of the fruit and split it open:

Stick your face in there and MANGIA! 🙂 Eat all the gooey stuff, discarding any stiff bits. You can eat the skin as well, up to you. Just don’t eat the centre core, as it is very gritty!

Hope you’re having a great afternoon! See you later!
