Cookies for breakfast. Does it get any better?! I gave Gina’s breakfast cookie a try for the first time this morning. I’ve been meaning to try it for months, but planning ahead the night before has eluded me. Not lastnight. I remembered! I hopped down to the kitchen right before bed and mixed up the “batter”, pressed it onto a plate, and stuck it in the fridge. I thought about it all during my 60 minute treadmill/bike workout and was happy to find it ready and waiting when I returned.
Along with a cup of coffee, this slightly sweet, protein-packed, oaty, nutty goodness was a hit! I’m a fan for sure. I just made the basic recipe with the oats, almondbutter, cinnamon, almond milk, and 1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds. Protein, grains, and healthy fats. Go go balanced breakfast!

Day 3- The five songs you would have with you on a desert island and why.
- Crazy Love by Van Morrison – this was our first dance at our wedding and it always brings back memories of one of the happiest days of my life
- I Know What I Know by Paul Simon – I love Paul Simon’s Graceland album and this is my favorite song from it. He used an African group called Ladysmith Black Mombazo on this album and they added a really great sound to a lot of the songs. It’s upbeat and fun to listen to.
- If Your Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band) by Alabama – It’s a great song and would remind me of home. Classic country.
- Honky Tonk Man by Marty Robbins – My dad used to sing and play this on his guitar when I was little. There is a line that says “Throw your arms round this honky tonk man.” and I would run over and throw my arms around his neck and give him a big hug. It one of my happiest and most vivid memories from childhood.
- Anything by Bob Marley – Love Bob Marley! Plus, I’m stuck on an island, so Bob Marley is a requirement. Really any song of his would do.
