2.75 on the move!

June 30, 2012


Family of 2.75 up and at ‘em!


I had a quick bowl of cereal – Whole Foods brand frosted mini wheats – with blueberries, banana, PB and milk


And then we headed to the market where we picked up pounds and pounds of potatoes, 25 ears of corn and a whole lotta local Rock Barn kielbasa for our party tonight! [As Conan would say, “Early morning sausage party!!”]

We said our hellos to Ellen at the GH tent!

It took the two of us loaded back and front to walk home with the loot – and flowers in hand!

We are VERY lucky to still have power this morning. Late last night our power flickered on and off several times and had me shaking in my PJs that we were going to lose the AC overnight! Thankfully we still have it, but it seems the other half of town is out from the buzz at the market.

I was planning to swim today, but I have a lot to do and plus that walk to and from the market wore me out! I’m also very pleased to say my upper body is sore from lifting weights yesterday – meaning I must have done something right!

Party prep continues!

When I read the part where you said “Or as Conan would say…” I got a little thrown. I was like, Kath knows my husband? Huh? How? Then it clicked you probably meant Conan O’brian, not the man I married 😉

Haha indeed

That storm last night was insane!!! There were trees and powerlines down everywhere here

That looks like a lovely farmer’s market morning! :) PS I had overnight oats for the first time yesterday morning – wow!! I can’t see getting sick of those anytime soon!!!


7 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats June 30, 2012 at 10:10 am

have a great Saturday, Kath!

Down in Georgia with 102 degree heat our power went off for the whole evening! It was like an oven!!

I feel like I’ve been gone for ages! Your belly definitely hit a growth spurt this week – you look amazing! :) That bread sounds soo perfectly crunchy and yummy… it begs to be slathered in butter. Mmmm 😉

I thought that you should know that there was a Great Harvest run this week at work. One coworker picked up the star spangled bread for a bunch of us! Cardiac rehab never tasted so good! 😉

You had quite the haul this morning- including carrying around the “.75” of the family. Week 32 was a brick wall for me-everything became 1,000 times harder; instantly….. Those flowers brightened my day- even through the screen. Beautiful!
Happy Saturday family of 2.75!

just wondering…do you guys have a car?


14 Amanda @ flecksofgreen June 30, 2012 at 11:51 am

I just recently started a dabble of nut butter here and there with cereal. I am loving it :)

Good luck with the party and really hope your power holds out..nothing like being hot, pregnant, and with a party to throw that it would decide to go on the fritz…ugh!


16 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count June 30, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Enjoy your party!!


17 Liz @ Tip Top Shape June 30, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Wow, that sounds like quite a party you’ve got later tonight!! Good luck with the party preparations!


18 Angela @ Happy Fit Mama June 30, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Sounds like it will be a delicious party! I hope you get some time to relax before the fun begins.


19 Alyssa (pb and oatmeal) June 30, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Have fun!


20 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles June 30, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Our power went out sometime in the night and came back on too! I woke to my clock flashing and had to grab my watch to check the time! Dinner sounds delish with all your market finds…those flowers are beautiful!

Ha. “Family of 2.75” is too cute :) Enjoy the party tonight!

Hey Kath,

I find that cereal doesn’t fill me up as much as oatmeal or vegan overnight oats.

What do you add to your cereal to get it to be more filling? (I don’t drink milk and I usually have almond milk in the house which doesn’t have as much protein as milk or soy). I also find that I eat it fast (10 minutes) compared to when I eat oats (20-25 min).

Thanks! Hope you’re having a great weekend :)


24 KathEats June 30, 2012 at 9:23 pm

I add a little fat and definitely the milk protein – fat + protein + whole grains make the best combo for me.

Enjoying Matt wearing an “eat tofu” t-shirt while holding a huge package of sausage 😉
