Raspberry Cheescake Oats

Today I've been letting stress get to me when it really should just be rolling off my back. It's just a lot of little things that have been getting me down, but I'm trying my best to see the positive side of everything. Easier said than done.

Anyway, I did make some yummy eats today for school and work! I made another OIAJ (oats in a jar) and it turned out really well. I think this tastes very reminiscent of raspberry cheesecake, so that's what I'm naming it!

I love that I can just stick this in my bag and not worry about it spilling! Mason jars are my favorite!

This is the recipe:

6 ounces nonfat, plain yogurt
1 scoop vanilla protein powder, mixed in the yogurt
1/2 cup old fashioned oats, also mixed into the yogurt
1/2 cup frozen raspberries on top

put in the fridge overnight, and when you're ready to eat just stir! It turns pink and it is so yummy! It's a heavy breakfast at 400 calories, but full of protein, and healthy carbs! As a college student, this is a great option for me because I don't have to worry about having a growly stomach half way through class! I ate breakfast at 9am this morning and didn't have to eat again until 1pm!

For lunch I just had a turkey sammie, but I'm so excited for dinner here at work!

I made SlimKatie's Ziti! Click the link for the recipe, the only thing I didn't do (mainly because the recipe ingredients were so easy, I didn't think to look at the recipe again) was bake it, I just stirred everything in the pot with some spinach! It cracks me up because the recipe name is actually baked ziti! Oh boy. I added some broccoli too cause I'm a good girl that eats her veggies :)

Marc LOVED this recipe, it calls for four servings, but after I made a serving for myself, he ate the rest. He kept saying, ummm Czesia? Can I have some more?!? This is when I know it's a good recipe! Thanks Katie, next time I'm actually going to follow directions and not be a space cadet!

Have a good night! Biology and Chemistry tomorrow, my first true full day. Eek!

I have got to try the rasperry thing. Yummm. Also, I tried wasabi peas the other day and thought of you.

Czesia said...

This breakfast is BOSS! I'm eating it again tomorrow! Did you like Wasabi Peas?! I almost bought them but our grocery budget was at the limit! They are tooo good!

Mollie said...

the are really good...strange, but good. haha.
I understand the grocery limit. I get pretty much the same stuff from the store everytime because I know what I can afford on our budget.

Czesia said...

I need to work harder on our budget. I like buying roceries at Walmart, and Pick n Save (kind of like a mix between winn dixie and publix) because I can get special diet products and healthy produce but I should go to Aldi more because it's cheaper but whenever I go there I get fruit flies! Plus the environment suxs...all the crazies go to Aldi.

Mollie said...

fruit flies? seriously??? gross. haha. I go to winn dixie mostly, and food lion(which i hate but it was close until they shut down) or I go to the dollar store which is cheap on everything but frozen foods...but they don't really have the diet stuff that you're into. you could save on spices though. haha

Czesia said...

I know right.. BLEGH! I didn't know food lion shut down!!! I miss Winn Dixie!

SlimKatie said...

I love the idea of adding spinach to the baked ziti!! I'm going to try that next time I make it.

Czesia said...

Man, that recipe was so good we're making it again this week!! So easy!

I'm gonna have to try this! It looks super yummy! What kind of protein powder do you get???

Czesia said...

I get the Eat good, Look Great Whey Protein from walmart, it's like 17.50 for a huge tub in the pharmacy section!
