Five on Friday: Recipes, Plans, and More

This week's 5 on Friday is related (mostly) to food! And, let's be honest here, who doesn't love food? No one raises hand. Let's get right to it, shall we?

-ONE-

It's been pumpkin central in my kitchen lately. The past two mornings I have had Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal for breakfast. Here's the recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
Directions:
Cook oats according to package instructions. After cooking, stir in pumpkin puree, brown sugar and cinnamon.


This breakfast is so yummy, and it's hearty so it keeps me full for a long time. Plus, it's less than 200 calories!

-TWO-

I have another pumpkin recipe for you! Like I said, pumpkin central.... This time though for a Pumpkin Protein Shake.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 scoops sweet cream protein powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice
Directions:
Add ingredients to a blender. Blend and enjoy!


Again, so yummy! It's a great snack, or meal replacement if that's your thing. I used the same can of pumpkin puree for both these recipes, and I still have some left. Yay for fall flavors!

-THREE-

I'm thinking about doing the AdvoCare cleanse with Holly and Mel. I've heard great things about it, but I am hesitating on pulling the trigger for some reason. It's not so much that I think I won't be able to stick to it, but cooking and preparing all of the food to keep me on track with eating clean. With that being said, I should be eating clean(er) anyway.

Thoughts on the AdvoCare cleanse? Yay or nay?

-FOUR-



I started making my Halloween costume last night! I am super excited about it. I was inspired by this owl costume, but I am going to put my own spin on it and be a black bird. I got a bunch of different black and gray fabrics with different textures and weights, plus I am going to add some iridescent purple fabric and black feathers. If I can execute my vision, I think it's going to be really cool!

I am also going to be helping my sister make my niece and nephew's costumes. They are going as a princess and a dragon. Too cute!

-FIVE-

And, of course not Five on Friday would be complete without a little #backthatazzup action!
