Protein Eggy Oats

Once upon a time, there was a girl who tried to write her blog post. She was about 2 minutes away from publishing it on her blog…AND THEN (dun dun dun) her laptop CRASHED!

Can you guess what happened?

She slammed her laptop lid and didn’t touch it for a whole day.

The end.

So that is why I have not blogged this week. My patience with technology can only last so long.

Anyone else have problems like this?

And my laptop is running out of storage space…and I really don’t want to delete anything. So…I need a new laptop, something awful.

Suggestions? (Anything but Apple, I’m a Windows girl for life)

I’m just going to start over today, fresh and new. Shall we?

This morning I wanted to eat egg whites and oats but I didn’t want to eat them separate. So I combined them! A lot of people do this, so I thought, “Why not?”

Protein Eggy Oats

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup liquid egg whites or 4 egg whites
  • A few shakes of cinnamon
  • A dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 or more tsp of Stevia/Truvia/Sweetener of choice

 

Directions:

  • Put the water in a sauce pan and turn it on high heat. When it starts to boil, turn it to medium heat. Then add the 1/2 cup oats. Stir for about 2 minutes. Oats will fluff up a little bit.
  • Add the egg whites
  • For 3-4 minutes, stir the oats and egg whites in a figure 8 motion because you don’t want the egg whites clumping together.
  • Finally, add the cinnamon, vanilla, and sweetener of choice.
  • Top with nutbutters, fruit, nuts, granola, or whatever you’d like!
  • This breakfast is filled with protein! Enjoy!

    When I first started blogging I didn’t know how to use WordPress and I kept losing posts. So frustrating! I usually post at night, just because it’s more convenient for me.

      Same here…its really the only time for me to post, but I would love to post in the morning so people have all day to read it. Maybe if I write the post the night before…hmm, an idea.

    I type up my posts with Windows Live Writer! It’s free and makes it sooooo much easier. I usually publish posts at the same time just to make it consistent but I’m not chained to that schedule. I blog during my down time! Which is sometimes first thing in the morning, sometimes at midnight 😉 my dad is a photographer and he has external hard drives to hold all his pictures and data, so maybe that could work for you?

    Honestly, I just blog when I feel like it. Sometimes I’ll blog twice a day, other times, I’ll skip 2 days in between. I don’t want to post anything unless it’s worth posting, you know? Also, I’m a big time morning post-er. I wake up super early in the mornings (not sure why, but I do), so I’m done blogging by about 7am.

    • Audrey says:

      Yeah, I’m the same way…if it’s nothing worthy, I usually don’t post it. I would love to have the extra time to write up posts in the morning

    Ugg. Don’t you hate it when that happens?! It’s happened to me three times I think now. And the next three/four times I post afterwards I end up pressing ‘Save’ every minute until I publish my post. And then I get bored of doing that so think it will all be OK – my computer won’t crash on me and BAM! It does it again!

    I get what you mean. I have a hard time posting consistently with my crazy schedule. Most of my posting occurs at night when I finally finish my homework. Oh and those eggy oats look sooo good 🙂
