tomato basil omelette

tomato basil omelette || Journey for JessiYes.  Yes, this is another breakfast post.  I make a lot of omelettes, but this is by far one of my best yet– the tomato basil omelette!  Oh yum!  Last week week when my parents came for a visit, we went to a local diner.  The wait was long, but well worth it.  Everything was so fresh and tasty to give that homey feel.  I ordered an egg white omelette there (surprise), but I got the most unique one on their menu; it had spinach, tomatoes, almonds with a drizzle of vinegar.  It was delicious!  That is where I got my inspiration for this morning’s creation.

applesauce oats

Here was my breakfast from the other day.  It consisted of 1/3 cup of liquid egg whites, raw almonds and Applesauce Oats.  

Ingredients

♦ 1/3 c oats (can be old-fashioned or quick; I use a combo of both)

♦ 1/3 c unsweetened applesauce

♦ cinnamon to taste 

Just mix all ingredients together and microwave for 1:30-2 minutes.  Top with more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!  

Here is my breakfast from the other morning.

hearts, hearts and more hearts

hearts, hearts and more hearts || Journey for JessiI have been both single and in relationships for Valentine’s day, so I speak from experience when I say that Valentine’s Day is a very weird holiday on both parts.  V-day has always just be eh for me.  I don’t hate it, I am not its number one fan.  In my opinion, it is just a holiday in which everyone gets all stressed out and–more often times than not–just straight up sad on the 14th.  Please people.  Calm down.  If you have a significant other, just relax.  Spend the day together.  Do not build these huge expectations of grandeur.  My best Valentine’s day with my boyfriend at the time was a night spend at home making dinner together and watching Scrubs.  If you are single, oh my gosh!  Enjoy it!  Once I embraced being single (and happy) this Valentine’s Day, I am more in favor of this day of love than I used to be.

sunday relaxation

sunday relaxation||Journey for JessiI cannot tell you how nice of a Sunday I had–okay well maybe I can.  It was a beautiful day!  Sunny skies, melting snow, warm temperatures…sigh.  It is glorious.  For breakfast, I had half a grapefruit sprinkled with stevia and cantaloupe with ¼ cup cashews (not pictured).  I always pair my fruit with a nut or fat of some sort to prevent drastic blood sugar spikes.

the breakfast or brunch burrito

the breakfast or brunch burrito--Journey for JessiBack in Colorado, but my breakfast (brunch) game is stronger than ever.  Maybe it is just because classes haven’t started yet and I am feeling energized and creative!  Yesterday, I woke up late and decided to wait for lunch, but I was still craving breakfast foods.  As a compromise, I made gluten-free, Veggie Brunch Burritos!   Continue reading

like mother like daughter

like mother like daughter--Journey for JessiSince I am heading back to Colorado on Saturday, my mom and I spent the day together yesterday.  We spent the day exploring and shopping our backyard–meaning Houston.  We do not really venture into the city too terribly much, but when we do, when always have a blast!   Continue reading
