Awake + Hazed

July 30, 2009

Morning! It was so nice to wake up to a sparking house :) I didn’t get to do yoga last night because I ended up talking to my mom on the phone for an hour. But I am going to hot yoga today with Kelsey!! Long time, no see or do!

I wanted a no-cook breakfast this morning so I made a yogurt mess -

  • 1 container of Oikos (couponed!)IMG_9948 (1024x768)
  • Handful blueberries
  • Half banana
  • Tbsp flax
  • Few tbsp Mix My Granola
  • Handful Quaker Oatmeal Squares
  • Tbsp malted barley
  • Drizzle Almond Haze compliments of VeggieGirl – Liz, it’s delicious!!!!!!

The only way I can get nut butters to drizzle about is with a knife. And it’s still hard to get it off! [That’s what she said.] Any other tips?

Meghann mentioned that Quinn mentioned that Old Navy, Gap + Banana are having 30% of for the next four days with this coupon. I think that’s a reason to shop! Sweet!

I’ve got a meeting with Mary this morning, then I’m going to yoga, then I need to cut the grass before we have the Great Harvest crew over for a party on Saturday night. Tonight we’re meeting up with our long lost friends for drinks! Better soak up all the summertime fun while we can

To get my nut butter offf my spoon or knife I lick it off because it’s to good to just wash off!

I would put it in a ziplock baggie and cut one of the corners out and squeeze it through! FUN!! :)

I put my portion on a small plate and nuke it for 10-15 seconds in the microwave and it melts it to make it drizzly.

Hot yoga is the best! I always feel so detoxed afterwards. I’m headed to a pilates class tonight, haven’t been in years – eek! Mmm….melty nut butter!

It’s so tempting to lick the spoon or knife that you use for nut butters!! hehe

Cereal and nut butter is SUCH a good combo! I think all nut butters are different when it comes to drizzling since they all have different textures. In my experience, natural nut butters are more runny than ones with added sugars/oils. Constant stirring helps too! :)

Spray your knife with a little bit of cooking spray.

Yogurt mess looks great! I love just throwing lots of things in with my greek yogurt and eating. So filling and feels like a treat.

Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you. Can’t wait to hear how the hot yoga session goes. It’s always fun to get out and do a group session every once in a while!

if it’s in a glass jar, stick it in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir with your knife, and drizzle away! be sure to lick the knife :)

cooking spray helps honey slid right off of a spoon, so it might help with your nut butter dilemma as well.

Aw, love that Liz! She’s so awesome! :)

That nut butter looks totally amazing and I love the mix of cereals you put together.

Have fun yoga-ing! :)

I do what others have suggested – heat it up for a few seconds in the microwave :-) My peanut butter is the easiest to drizzle, it’s the Whole Foods 365 Natural :-)

Hi Kath and everyone,

Hoping to get your thoughts, and unnoficial advice on something…a co-worker friend of mine went to her regular MD becuase she wanted to lose some weight, and he put her on a pretty restrictive diet along wiht diet pills…she wasn’t necessarily very overweight to begin with, but now she is so thin I can see her bones in her arms and chest…she looks almost skeletal, and I am worried about her health! She says she consumes 1200 calories a day, but I am a little skeptical.

I want to approach her gently with my concerns…but not sure how to go about it without offending her or upsetting her. Her son and her brother have shown concern and she’s not listening…also some people have made comments at work to her, which she shrugs off and seems offended by.

Any ideas??? Please let me know!

I’m so excited about the coupons- a friend works for Gap corporate and I look forward receiving to those every year. 30% is a great deal!!!

Bahah good TWSS reference!!

Just wanted to tell you that I made an oatmeal pancake this am – I was getting bored of my normal breakfasts!! I Topped it with ABU (half almond butter, half almond milk mixture) and sliced banana and it was AWESOME!!!

I don’t really know how to get PB to drizzle. It’s something that still baffles me!! Let us know if you figure out a great PB drizzling technique! lol

i really want to try malter barley, i hope i can find it somewhere! i think i would like it, because i love cereals and bars that use malted barley! i never tried it on its own before … does it taste anything like malt syrup ??

that almond haze looks dreeaammmy

Great looking breakfast. I’m in the States visiting and I have some Oikos coupons waiting for me–very excited to use them! If you’re ever in the Dallas area, go to a grocery store called Central Market–I went this morning–it’s amazing! Like a Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market, and Whole Foods all in one!

42 Kath July 30, 2009 at 5:59 pm

Great tips on the cooking spray!

Christin S ,
That’s a tough situation. I’m not sure what I would do since I am not you, but it sounds like her health is at risk.

Amanda ,
YUM! I haven’t made them in ages.

Denise ,
I’ve never had malt syrup so I don’t know! It tastes like Grape Nuts.

I love Oikos yogurt! Have you ever tried Cultural Revolution yogurt? It is my absolute favorite. It’s very low in sugar which is so nice because sometimes yogurts, even the plain ones, are full of sugar. Anyways you should try it sometime. I get it at Whole Foods!

Blair ,
I haven’t tried that kind and we don’t have a whole foods here, but I’ll keep my eye out!
