Lazy Thursday

I didn't feel like doing much today except sit around in a sweat shirt and eat. I went for a run at the resivior instead of trekking my ass to the gym and it was the change of pace I needed in my workout routine. When I got home I was ready for a hearty bowl of oatmeal to appease my belly and a piping hot shower to relax my muscles. 

I call this bowl of deliciousness Berry Almond Oatmeal. I added a tablespoon of freshly ground flaxseed, blueberries, and a small handful of almonds. And as per usual, a large dash of cinnamon for extra sweetness. The flaxseed and almonds provide a solid nut flavor, which is a nice balance to the delicately sweet blueberries. This bowl of oatmeal comes in at about 330 calories. 

When lunch time rolled around I knew I had to make something with my tortillas because they will be expiring soon, but I did not want to make a wrap. I decided to try something completely different and make a Hummus Pizza. Instead of pizza sauce and cheese, I spread a quarter cup of hummus on top of the tortilla, covered it with my favorite pizza-topping vegetables and baked it in the oven. 

The hummus gives the pizza that creamy texture you would normally get from the cheese, but without the unhealthy fats and cholesterol. I only baked it in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes, but it could have used another 5 minutes to finish cooking the peppers and onions. What can I say, sometimes I'm too hungry for my food to finish cooking. My pizza was only about 250 calories, so I also ate this with a small side of black beans and steamed broccoli. 

My stomach was very satisfied! For dinner tonight I'm making something a little more complicated. I will post the recipe tomorrow. :)
