tomato basil omelette

tomato basil omelette || Journey for JessiYes.  Yes, this is another breakfast post.  I make a lot of omelettes, but this is by far one of my best yet– the tomato basil omelette!  Oh yum!  Last week week when my parents came for a visit, we went to a local diner.  The wait was long, but well worth it.  Everything was so fresh and tasty to give that homey feel.  I ordered an egg white omelette there (surprise), but I got the most unique one on their menu; it had spinach, tomatoes, almonds with a drizzle of vinegar.  It was delicious!  That is where I got my inspiration for this morning’s creation.

applesauce oats

Here was my breakfast from the other day.  It consisted of 1/3 cup of liquid egg whites, raw almonds and Applesauce Oats.  

Ingredients

♦ 1/3 c oats (can be old-fashioned or quick; I use a combo of both)

♦ 1/3 c unsweetened applesauce

♦ cinnamon to taste 

Just mix all ingredients together and microwave for 1:30-2 minutes.  Top with more cinnamon if desired and enjoy!  

Here is my breakfast from the other morning.

Really??  Oh well, even random snow storms can’t dull my Spring spirit.

the beauty in choice

Everyone else can see beauty in you, except for you.  Why is that?  I challenge you to reflect on your beauty everyday–your physical beauty or even the beauty you hold within your soul.

easter feels

easter feels || Journey for JessiEaster is beyond my favorite holiday.  The spring season, the meaning, the feeling it brings inside me–everything about it just cleanses me and gives me an ignited appreciation for life and all the little things it brings.  I love Easter with all my heart, and why wouldn’t I when this holiday reminds people of new life and rebirth and hope?  I must admit to feeling emotional on Easter.  It’s embarrassing to admit, but I usually tear up in Church.  This Easter I have even more “feels” in me.  One of my favorite Easters was a few years back to my freshman year when I was warmly invited to spend Easter with Jessi and her wonderful family.
