Cookies and more!!!

Yeah I know your thinking wasn't one of her goals continue to eat healthy despite having a crazy month and a kitchen under construction. Don't worry these cookies are healthy!

One of my morning meals is 1/2 cup of oatmeal and 4 egg whites. As you might of guessed this doesn't really work when my job gets crazy. For example today I had to be out of the office, so I need a way to eat oatmeal and egg whites without the use of an oven or microwave. My first thought was that sounds like the making of a cookie!

So I took some oats, added in egg whites, added cinnamon, and stirred it up. I felt like it was still to "watery" so I add a few more oats and a little protein powder. Stirred it again. It was beginning to look like cookie dough, so I added some raisins in. Into the toaster oven at 400 degrees and out comes a cookie.

I'm still working on the recipe, so you'll have to wait a few more days- but it's sure to amaze you. It tastes great and gave me a filling mid-morning snack.

In other food news, we did some work on the kitchen tonight. Matt is working on some sanding- so I started to build two cabinets. We want to make sure that we get the right measurements for the tiles and such, so I built one upper and one lower. Here's what the progression looks like:

They weren't too bad to assemble. The first one takes some extra time to understand the diagram, but after a few fixable errors it was all done. Yeah.!!!!

After working for about 3 hours we were on the verge of calling in a Chinese food order for dinner, when I decide to instead to stay on the healthy road and make dinner. We aren't going vegetarian, but I have been finding that veggie based meals are a quick option. I had a bunch of lentils in the fridge so I decide to create a wrap with a sweet potato!

I was focused on a Mediterranean theme for the lentils, so after cooked them I added some paprika, garlic salt, and Greek yogurt to flavor them. I also cut up some black olives, roasted red peppers, and artichoke hearts. Combine all in a sundried tomato wrap- and you have a great creation.

Next time you need a great meal, I think you should consider lentils!
