Acid Washed Oats

October 4, 2009

Good morning! I am happy to be feeling good this morning after a ton of good sleep last night.

I kicked off Sunday with a bowl of rockin acid washed oats! [Just discovered this effect in Windows Live Photo Gallery]

Today’s agenda is actually pretty wide open!! I have a handful of things to do, but I also have most of this week open to do them, so I can spread out the time. For exercise we’re thinking a combo of walking, sports and yard work. I’d like to do yoga too, but I’m not sure if I have the patience. Ironically.

Rock on!

Are you still feeling as into yoga as you used to be? I find I go through stages with it.

Enjoy your Sunday!

Hm. I find when I don’t want to do yoga is when I need it the most. Just some yogi food for thought.

Have a great day!

LOVE the acid washed look.

I was very curious about what acid washed oats were! Sounded pretty gross, haha! 😉

I just started a yoga/pilates challenge for the month of October. I have to do it every other day for the entire month and if I stick with it, I’m rewarding myself with either a facial or massage. It’s the only way I can motivate myself to do it!! And if I fail, I’m donating my facial or massage to a fellow teacher.

Have a lovely Sunday!!

Have a fantastic Sunday! Those photo effects are pretty fun… there are even more in the photo editor program!

I’ve never tried yoga, I may try a lesson or two when I feel more comfortable at the gym. Have an awesome day! :)

Hey Kath,
I was wondering, what photo editing software do you use? I assume your camera gives you very large pictures, and you have to resize them. Do you do it in batches?


8 AnnQ October 4, 2009 at 9:47 am

I hear you….when I’ve done Yoga and am in a more Type A Exercise Mood, I’m thinking “Hurry up!!!”. Sort of defeats the purpose. :-)


9 Sarah @ The Foodie Diaries October 4, 2009 at 11:01 am

I’ve never seen that in Live Photo! I need to play with it soon; wheatberries in oats sounds like aaamazing texture love


10 Katelyn October 4, 2009 at 11:04 am

Love acid washed look! I was wondering at first what you had begun eating?!!

Make a great day!


11 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is October 4, 2009 at 11:16 am

The oats look so much cooler acid washed. :)


12 Daria @ Daria Can Cook October 4, 2009 at 11:17 am

Haha I was wracking my brain trying to think of what acids you could put in oatmeal. Lemon juice? Vinegar? That’s such a cool photo effect – everything looks so vibrant!


13 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope October 4, 2009 at 11:32 am

What a neat feature on the camera! Probably not the best for food blogging, but it sure adds a nice effect. 😉

Sounds like a wonderful day ahead of you – enjoy it!


14 Lizzy October 4, 2009 at 11:38 am

What an awesome feature on your camera. i love finding out new things that you never new about! :)


15 sue October 4, 2009 at 11:49 am

16 Nicole of Raspberry Stethoscope October 4, 2009 at 11:51 am

Aw, I say YES TO THE YOGA!!:)


17 Wendy October 4, 2009 at 11:55 am

At first glance, I thought your spoonful of PB was a raw egg yolk in the acid washed picture!

I haven’t had the patience for yoga in quite sometime, although my body felt soooo much better when I was doing it. Sounds like you have a nice relaxing day/week ahead of you!

I love doing yard work on crisp fall days! It’s a great form of exercise!


21 Julia October 4, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I know I’ve said it before, but you always make me crave breakfast in the evenings (with the time difference, because I’m in Europe)!

Hope you’ll have a great week!

26 Karina (Like Some Cat from Japan) October 4, 2009 at 1:58 pm

I always look forward to looking at your breakfasts!
They look so beautiful all the time


27 coco October 4, 2009 at 2:28 pm

this combo looks yummy and this effect very exotic!
Kath, I have two questions:
1) when do you add chia seed when you cook the oatmeal? at the beginning?
2) how long does wheat berries last in fridge once it’s cooked?


28 Tina October 4, 2009 at 2:29 pm

I’ve been wanting to try wheatberries for the longest time!! Your oatmeal bowls are always so varied and look so good. I think I’m gonna have to start looking to yours for breakfast inspiration.


29 Jenna October 4, 2009 at 2:30 pm

Awesome photo Kath! It looks so cool!

Enjoy your lazy Sunday!


30 Kath October 4, 2009 at 7:41 pm

Yes, I’m going through a stage. I think it’s more fun in the winter when it’s cozy and cold. I’m in a going-to-a-class stage, but no one has been able to go.

Windows Live Photo Gallery. I shoot in 3000 resolution and resize to 640 – WLPG does it in bulk and it’s a great organization system.

At the beginning

7-10 days



31 Whit October 4, 2009 at 9:16 pm

I like the acid wash feature…veddy interesting. Perhaps I should check into this windows live photo gallery. You like it better than Picasa?


32 Kath October 5, 2009 at 9:50 am

i haven’t used picasa for much more than a test, so I’m not 100% sure, but I do like it.
