We’re moving house this weekend so it’s fair to say I am feeling a little bit stressed! You know the drill, stuff everywhere, clothes you need are already packed and the cat thinks the boxes scattered on the floor are purely for his pleasure (That is until they all crash on top of his head!).
I took a day off the gym yesterday following a fun filled late night of packing! I’m not even sure how I have accumulated so much stuff. I moved to Dubai a year and a half ago with only one suitcase and one hand luggage! Anyway I am going waaaaay off track…. As I was saying, I physically couldn’t get out of bed to go to the gym before work and I knew we were spending our evening moving the first load of ‘stuff’ to the new place (which went incredibly smoothly surprisingly! I put it down to the fact I have moved a GAZILLION times, so I am practically a Pro now). I made a conscious effort to stay out of the kitchen last night, which ain’t easy for me! Food was prepped for lunches and we enjoyed a well deserved meal out after dropping our things off at the new pad (I had baked Ricotta Salmon and vegetable quinoa in case you were wondering!)
I attempted to relax (something I am not great at), got into bed early and annoyingly had the WORST nights sleep ever. Tossing and turning, really anxious but excited at the same time. Kind of like the feeling you have on Christmas Eve as a kid… You know if you don’t go to sleep Santa might not come but you kindaaaa wanna catch him in the act! Yeah, that feeling. I’m babbling again aren’t I? SO the point I’m trying to make is that, I went to the gym this morning on next to no sleep and did a very brutal leg session, which instantly made me feel better. I swear the gym is like a drug to me, I released all that nervous energy and have been bouncing around ALL day!
As you may or may not of realised, breakfast is one of my FAVE meals of the day. If I only had time to either do my hair or eat breakfast I would ALWAYS choose breakfast, hands down! Especially if breakfast means Paleo Noatmeal… (I have had them every morning this week…. officially ADDICTED!)
So here is what you will need for the ‘Noats’:
- 3 eggs (2 egg whites 1 full egg)
- 1/2 cup of Flax Meal
- 1 large Banana (only put half in the ‘Noats’ mixture, other half is to go on top)
- 250ml almond milk
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
- A dollop of nut butter (I used around 2 and a 1/2 tsps)
How to make:
- Blend all the ingredients together remembering to leave half of the banana out of the blender.
- Heat in a pan, continuously stirring for 3-5 minutes until it forms a ‘oatmeal’ texture.
It really is as simple as that! The toppings used are pretty self explanatory, I used Gojiberries, fresh blueberries, half a banana, Chia Seeds, Sunflower seeds and pomegranate. Basically making this already delicious bowl of Noatmeal SUPER delicious and even more nutritionally awesome! Get in my bellyyyyyy!
Peace out Paleo peeps! J xx
Ps. Here is some past Paleo Noats inspiration for y’all!
Like I said… It is an addiction!
