Awake + Gloing

October 9, 2009

Morning!! I was up at 5:32 this morning ready to go but convinced my mind to sleep for another hour. Alarm did go off at 6:26 and we were off to the gym on our bikes by 7:05. I stopped for 2 bites of banana along the way.

Workout was great. In addition to our biking, I did 30 hard minutes on the Stairmaster. GOSH that machine is tough! I thought I was almost done and I peeked and still had 7 minutes left. I survived and we were on our way back home (more downhill than up!) in no time.

We are in a bit of a rush now because Larbs + Matt’s flight is landing sooner than scheduled!

We decided on yogurt bowls for breakfast to save time with cooking and dishes –

But by the time I was done assembling mine and photographing, Matt was already done!

There was a new surprise ingredient in the bowl: GLO-NOLA!!

In honor of her debut to ship to the USA, Angela sent a package of goodies from the Glo Bakery!

A sampling of Glo Bars and some Glo-nola! I cant’ wait to try some of these out –

All stashed for eating!

Cranberry Pumpkin Raisin Almond Spice –

So my yogurt bowl contained:

  • 1 container Oikos plain
  • The last of pumpkin – about 1/4 cup
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tiny banana
  • 2 tbsp wheatberries
  • ~1/3 cup Glo-nola 
  • Few drops Costco PB
  • 1 tbsp flax

I’m a little teacup, short and stout!

We were out of milk this morning so I used a little chocolate milk in my coffee! I got this sample of choco from Organic Valley + Nature’s Path granola  in honor of their Organic Heroes campaign. The choco combo was great!

Good luck with the video – I can’t wait to check it out!

I hate packing – the worst part of traveling. I love adding hot chocolate to coffee – I bet chocolate milk is even better.


2 kay (eating machine) October 9, 2009 at 8:44 am

mmm i love those little chocolate milks! i get them as a snack sometimes when i’m craving sweet


3 Beth @ DiningAndDishing October 9, 2009 at 8:46 am

Chocolate milk is supposed to be one of the best recovery drinks… or at least that is what I tell myself when I’m drinking it. Have a great trip!


8 Food Makes Fun Fuel October 9, 2009 at 9:03 am

All those glo products look delicious
Today I was definitely feeling a SIAB but not blender in my dorm :-( some creamy yogurt hit the spot though


9 Melissa October 9, 2009 at 9:04 am

Everything from the Glo Bakery looks delicious!

Seems like you’re super busy right now…but I’m waiting to see what you thought of Jim and Pam’s wedding on last night’s episode of the Office. It’s beyond cute and left me in a super sappy mood. :)


10 Erica October 9, 2009 at 9:05 am

Sounds like a great morning so far! All of Angela’s products always look incredible. Have fun with the sister this weekend.


11 Lizzy October 9, 2009 at 9:07 am

18 Tammy October 9, 2009 at 9:29 am

Yogurt bowls are my favorite quick, everyday breakfast, especially with granola! I’m so excited that Angela is now shipping to the U.S.! Thanks for letting us know!


19 brandi October 9, 2009 at 9:37 am

26 Cynthia (It All Changes) October 9, 2009 at 10:03 am

I can’t wait til Angela has more available and I can order. It looks great.

I like you combo for oatmeal. I never know how to make instant oatmeal interesting. Sounds good!


27 Sarah October 9, 2009 at 10:07 am

Great video Kath! I love how oatmeal can literally have endless combinations. Good luck with the contest, I hope your charity does win :)

Perfect way to start out your Friday with a nice workout. And I’m totally jealous of the Glo Bakery Goods!!! Angela is quite the amazing baker. :)

I def had to check out the glo bar site now that they can make it to the US, they look so yummy!


42 AnnQ October 9, 2009 at 12:54 pm

I always put hot chocolate in coffee, and I’m sure chocolate milk would be great, too!

Tha Glo-nola looks yum! :-)

Have a great vaca!!!


43 Hallie (Healthy Twists) October 9, 2009 at 12:55 pm

Angela’s products look so good! And I know what you mean about the stairmaster…I haven’t done it in awhile and it’s TOUGH. But it’s good for you (me?) mentally as well. I think I’m dying and I can’t do those last 10 or whatever minutes, but I push those thoughts out of my head and power through. Feels so good when you’re done!


44 Anne [email protected] Weigh of Life October 9, 2009 at 1:15 pm

I love the video! I’m off too vote!


45 Sheila | Live Well 360° October 9, 2009 at 1:26 pm

YAY for Angela!! We also went to oh, about at least 7 different cake tastings for our wedding cake, and… we ALSO choose a vanilla bean cake with a raspberry preserve filling. Haha.

Thanks for stopping by the empty pb jar oat post. It made it onto both tastespotting and foodgawker. Woohoo! Have a great weekend Kath!

PS Did you watch The Office yet??? My favorite part: Gives me chills…


46 Shannon (The Daily Balance) October 9, 2009 at 1:40 pm

47 Following Julie October 9, 2009 at 2:33 pm

Mmmmmm, glonola! Lucky girl.


48 Allison October 9, 2009 at 2:57 pm

Thats a whooole lotta Glo-bars!! Very jealous over here… that breakfast looks awesome with the glo-nola addition too :)

Oh and RANDOM question, is that dress you’re wearing in your pic from H&M?? I swear I tried on its’ twin the other day if not and it fit like a dream! It looks SO cute on you!!!! :)


49 Funky Lady October 9, 2009 at 3:22 pm

I am loving pumpkin season, but Ohio has a serious pumpkin shortage! I did find some pumpkin butter at TJ’s which is heavenly mixed with yogurt!!

Good job on the video!


50 Diana October 9, 2009 at 3:57 pm

Good luck with the contest! Let me know if you need any help eating those Glo bars! 😉


51 Naomi (onefitfoodie) October 9, 2009 at 4:05 pm

54 Ashley October 9, 2009 at 5:27 pm

Voted!! Good luck….off to cleveland for the week! Enjoy your vaca as well =)


55 Pamela October 9, 2009 at 5:42 pm

Have fun on Bald Head. I live in Wilmington and it was 85 degrees today, sunny, cool breeze — hope the weather sticks all weekend for you. Was thinking of places you might stop for some good sounthern eats if you venture off the island…
In Southport – Live Oak Cafe or Taylors (the later, not so healthy, but yummy).
In Wilmington – downtown on Front Street, Basics is very yummy, fresh, local food – but still southern. Jesters, on Castle (close to downtown) has fresh, local breakfast and lunch. Caprice Bistro, downtown on Market, has a fun sofa lounge, good martini specials, and a $5 bar menu.


56 Nicole October 9, 2009 at 6:04 pm

I missed the Quaker post but what a neat video and concept! I will definitely check it out and vote for yours. I love seeing how so many Americans and our national companies are pulling together to help those in need. Especially in these hard times.

Those Glo products look delicious! Have a great weekend with your company!


57 maria October 9, 2009 at 7:26 pm

I’ve never thought about adding chocolate milk to my coffee… what a brilliant switch for a special day. :)


58 BroccoliHut October 9, 2009 at 10:18 pm

Totally craving chocolate milk now!
Have a fab trip:)


59 Kath October 10, 2009 at 11:01 pm

Didn’t get a chance to watch it!! Will on Monday :)

Can you please be more specific!? I don’t know what granola you mean.

Aww thanks.


We’re staying on the island, but we often do lunch in Wilmington on our way out. Love the waterfront!
