Metabolism Booster Breakfast & Lunch Salad

Okay, so after a long day of a "Cooking Sunday" this is my result!
Well, at least the salad is!

Metabolism Booster Breakfast

1/2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
1/8-1/4 Cup Homemade Granola
1 TBS Regular PB2
Enough Water To Get Desired Texture
Cinnamon To Taste
1/2 Grapefruit
1 Teaspoon Brown Sugar

Fill a coffee mug with the 1/2 cup oats, 1 TBS PB2 (<-- Click and check it out! AMAZING!), & Cinnamon, stir around to get it all incorporated. Add enough water to cover at least the top of the oats, if not a little more (you can always add more later). Microwave for 1 minute on high, stir to check consistency and water level. Now is the time to add more if it is too dry, or milk for a creamier texture. Microwave for an additional minute if needed. Top with 1/8-1/4 cup of homemade granola. I will be posting my homemade granola this weekend, YUM! But seriously..I could eat the whole mason jar of it!!

Preheat the oven to broil while prepping the grapefruit.   I think it's terribly bitter so I add 1 Teaspoon of brown sugar to cut some of the tartness, then broil until the edges of the fruit start to burn.  The actual fruit itself will not burn, but it will come out a lot sweeter!

Oven Roasted Chicken Salad

1 Cup Spinach
1/2 Cup Tomatoes
1/2 Cup Cucumber
1/8 Cup Black Olives
1/2 Cup Roasted Chicken
(from previous recipe)
Feta Cheese To Taste
Blueberry 0% Chobani

Tossing or layering is up to you! I always put the Cucumbers & Tomatoes down first to prevent my Spinach from wilting too bad overnight and until lunch, then I add a few more on top with the Chicken, Olives & Feta!
