As promised, today I am delivering the blueberry oatmeal smoothie from the Runner’s World Cookbook. You know I love my smoothies and this one ranks up high in my book! I like that itz packed with protein even though it uses no protein powder. Since I haven’t been working out, I haven’t been using protein powder like I used to, so I welcomed this recipe with
open arms an open mouth. Here you go, friends!
Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie
- 1 cup milk (I used 2% dairy)
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon flaxseed
Tastes like a blueberry muffin without all the added fat and sugar. Fabulous breakfast!

I love Dave & Tony’s because you can build your own salad and add lots of goodness!
Dinner included a tuna melt. I simply toasted a piece of bread with Wild Planet tuna and topped it with cheese. It was mighty tasty. This was the first time I’d tried Wild Planet and Jonny and I both agreed that the tuna was noticeably better than other canned brands. Itz more expensive (though I received mine free to review), but itz for good reason. Wild Planet is huge on sustainability and claim their tuna has the highest Omega-3 and low levels of mercury. They add no water or oil to their tuna.
I had a head of cauliflower that needed to be used, so I decided to make mashed cauliflower. You know, like the fake, healthier version of mashed potatoes? Well, I also tried to take a shortcut and use my blender instead of my mini food processor. This caused me to add way more milk than I normally would have and we wound up with cauliflower soup.
No complaints from me or Jonny! I literally steamed the head of cauliflower and threw it in the blender with almost two cups of milk, a dash of salt, garlic, and pepper. After blending, I topped our bowls with some cheese. Winner winner
chicken cauliflower dinner!
