Ahead Of The Curve

November 30, 2012

The Opposite Of Fail

November 29, 2012

Such a delicious day!!! I started the morning with pumpkin oats mixed in with cottage cheese and topped with melted coconut butter and Barney Butter.

Our yard is so pretty 3 seasons […]

Farewell Thanksgiving

November 25, 2012

This bowl was filled with Coach’s Oats, milk and water, plus chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla and about 1/2 a cup of pumpkin. Topped with coconut and melted Barney Butter (<—BB melts […]

Life is so festive when visitors are in town! Our Thanksgiving weekend continued with a hike, a picnic and a dinner at our place. Oatmeal for breakfast – with cooked wheatberries and cottage cheese stirred in! Sunbutter and pecans on top.   We headed out after breakfast to hike the Old Mills Trail that just […]
