WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips). Peanut Butter, Banana, and Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies 2-3 Personal Points per serving  Serves: 16 Serving size: 1 cookie Ingredients Banana(s):   3 small, ripe Uncooked old fashioned oats: 1.5 cups Powdered peanut butter: 1⁄3 cup Table salt: 1⁄4 tsp   Mini semisweet chocolate chips: 1⁄3 cup Instructions Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.

Quarantine Survival: 4 Netflix Canada Shows to Binge Watch

I'm not going to sit here and pretend that I am using this self-isolation/quarantine time wisely. I haven't started any new hobbies, nor do I have any interest in learning a new language (thanks for the tip Gwyneth).

Basically, my quarantine survival kit consists of wifi, social media, screen time for the kids, and Netflix. Lots of Netflix.

If you're looking for new shows to binge-watch...here are a few of my faves that I will probably rewatch soon!

Workin' Moms

OK, so I love this show. Not just because it's a Canadian original, but because I think every mom during different stages of parenting can relate to these characters and struggles at various points. It's hilarious, some parts are uncomfortable, and some storylines hit a little too close to home. But trust me, it's an easy and fast show to breeze through if you're quarantining yourself during this pandemic.

GOOP Lab

GOOP has a pretty comprehensive synopsis of what their Netflix docuseries is about (https://goop.com/the-goop-lab-netflix/). But what I found most interesting is how the ideas come to fruition and how the team really uses themselves as guinea pigs to get to the bottom of the research. My favourite episodes were Cold Comfort (ep. 2), and The Energy Experience (ep. 5).

Cable Girls

I needed an exciting go-to period drama to lose myself in, and this one did the trick. 5 whole seasons of how the lives of four young women in the 1920s are connected as they delve deep into their careers at the cable company in Madrid. Love, mystery, crime, drama...it's all there, and it's spectacular! 

Love is Blind

I'm not going to lie, I miss the Bachelor! And this show got me out of my Bachelor slump! There are people you may want to slap, there are budding love stories that may make you weep....all I'm gonna say is that you will love some...hate some....and then you'll stalk them on Instagram to see if they're still together or not! Come on...you know you want to come over to the dark side with me!


What are your go-to binge-worthy shows?
