So I'm down in Florida for the Duramed Future's Tour Qualifying. I've been here since last Saturday and will be here until this coming Friday and we have rented a house with a team mate of mine who's also playing. So all this time and a kitchen of course I'm cooking some things!

Berry Oats- just my new version of my staple breakfast
1/2c regular oats (or i love oat bran or cream of wheat)
1c skim milk/ soy milk
1c berries (frozen is good since the juices make for some sweetness)
a pinch of cinnamon and some times added sweetener like truvia (a stevia blend)
2 tbsp ground flax and wheat germ

bam mix all on the stove top for some berry yumminess!

last night i made a yummy vegetarian friendly lentil vegetable stoup (a lil thicker than a soup more like a stew)

Lentil Vegetable Soup
2- 2 1/2c of lentils
2 chopped carrots
1/2 red onion
2-3 cloves garlic
2-3 stocks celery
6-7 chopped cherry tomatoes
1/2 bag frozen veg soup mix (carrots, tomatoes, lima beans, okra, corn...etc)
1 can unsalted diced tomatoes
1 can tomato paste
seasonings to taste: fresh sage, oregano, basil, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, rosemary, sea salt
1 cube of vegetarian beef broth (found in your local organic store/ whole foods market its a great alternative to using canned broth and you avoid all the added sodium)

1) First start a large pan with a lil extra virgin olive oil and throw in the chopped carrots, celery, garlic, onion, tomatoes and some water and let it simmer until carrots and everything cook down.
2) add in the diced tomatoes

3) at the same time as you're simmering the broth. Put lentils and water in a big pot and boil for about 15 minutes
4) add in the pan of aromatic veggies! then add frozen veggies and tomato paste and seasonings all to taste. I went for a more brothy tomato base if you want more tomato paste or could add more veg stock for more broth

5) let cook for about another 45 min the lentils should get bigger and there you have it so delicious and a complete meal. (oh i also had some sweet potatoes cooking in the oven so i add 1/2 of one in my bowl for a complete dinner)

Thanks to my fellow blogger Brittney ( I was inspired to cook something with pumpkin.
Pumpkin Bars
1 can organic pumpkin
1 cup oats
1/2 egg whites
2 tbsp agave nectar
6 tbsp wheat germ
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4c unsweetened apple sauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda and baking powder
1/2c whole wheat flour
pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg

also great to add maybe nuts like pecans or raisins. And this recipe wasn't quite as sweet as most bars/cookies etc so you could up the brown sugar a lil or add stevia
1) what could be more simple.... I just mixed all the ingredients in a big bowl and popped into the oven a 350 degrees for about 20 minutes where i forked the middle and no wetness came on the fork...bam it was done!
