Ahh what a great shirt! Luckily I think carb-phobia is on the way out. You are definitely the queen of oats. ;)

Have a great weekend!

I remember you saying a couple times that you only drank cool coffee, not iced. When did you become a convert?

Reply

15 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 10:42 am

Well this is still cool because the ice melts quickly and becomes cool coffee. I still like it cool!

16 Baking 'n' Books May 27, 2011 at 7:45 am

Does the cottage cheese make it thicker versus milk or yogurt? What kind do you buy?

Great start to a friday, even if it isn’t real cheesecake:-) Have a great day!

Hilarious shirt!

I’d love a piece of cheesecake for breakfast — although I’d probably want to go back to bed after the sugar crash.

Kath I have a question- do you ever add ricotta cheese to any of your oatmeal creations (SIAB or regular oat bowls)? I have some leftover for a recipe and I’m trying to figure out what to do with it…. Thanks!

Reply

35 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 10:44 am

I have never really been fond of ricotta. Until I found a grass-fed kind at Whole Foods. It was AMAZING but it was also $6 a container, so I don’t really buy it because it’s super expensive. But since my cottage cheese is $5 I should switch it up sometime!

37 Lindsay May 27, 2011 at 9:02 am

Hey Kath!
Have you ever tried eating oats that you’ve cooked in a crock pot over night? It’s my favorite way to eat them and was just wondering if you’ve ever given that method a shot. I have yet to try your overnight oats, but plan to soon! :)
Have a good day,
Lindsay

38 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 10:44 am

No mostly because my crockpot is a PAIN to clean!! I’ve done huge dutch oven servings, but not crockpot. Sometime when I have a brunch I’ll try it.

Hi Kath! Can you recommend a good scale? I think the one I have is finally dying. I don’t need anything fancy – just one for weight. There are so many out there, it’s confusing!

Reply

54 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 10:45 am

Food scale? I have an Eat Smart brand one that I like a lot. It’s little and lightweight.

If you mean Body scale, I’d just go to Bed, Bath + Beyond and pick one. I don’t own one of those anymore.

I still need the kale shirt!

60 Lindsey May 27, 2011 at 12:01 pm

I tried to make your dough boy smoothie a couple weeks ago but didn’t have any chia seeds on hand and the smoothie was a disaster. I noticed that this recipe calls for them too. Do they make a big difference in making the smoothie thick? Any substitution ideas?

Reply

61 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 12:33 pm

What was disastrous about it? They are not required.

Great Harvest birthday….
I met some friends for breakfast this morning to celebrate a close friends birthday. (had the most amazing oatmeal topped with creme brulee but that’s beside the point). I found a book to give her for her birthday called “friendship bread”. Looked like a good book so I bought it and added two loaves of Great Harvest. She loved it!

oh yes. this is an amazing breakfast I can tell. so do you really feel like you’re eating more carbs b/c of the bakery Kath? for some people, I hear that when they’re in a bakery all day, they eat less of it. But when I worked at one years ago, all I did was eat pastries muuahhaha.

66 KathEats May 27, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Well the bakery isn’t open yet, and this week of training was an anomaly. Wait for today’s lunch – back to normal!

I made it this morning. YUM!!! I see that you say that its for 2 servings, but I took 2 servings out of the blender and STILL have 2 cups of yumminess left over. How big are your servings??

75 KathEats May 28, 2011 at 7:50 am

What you see in the photo – a big bowl’s worth. Maybe 1.75 – 2 cups?

76 Laura May 28, 2011 at 8:03 am

Ah – that’s why. lol I have been on a super restrictive diet, so that is a huge amount of food at once right now.

Thanks for posting all your yummy breakfasts! I look forward to trying more. I just discovered your site a few days ago.

Do you do anything special to keep your smoothies from separating?? Last time I tried the Dough Boy smoothie it separated before I could eat it the next day :-(

Reply

79 KathEats May 28, 2011 at 10:47 am

Oh you should never blend it ahead of time! It will definitely separate. You are supposed to mix it, let it sit overnight, and blend in the morning.

80 Nikki May 31, 2011 at 9:19 am

Hey, quick question – what type of chia seeds do you use? I was at Whole Foods and found a bag, but it was a small one for $21 wow! I was looking online, but there are so many options. Do you have any preference or guidance? Is there a big difference between brands?

Do you use milled ones or just whole ones?

Reply

81 KathEats May 31, 2011 at 1:24 pm

I think chiaseedsdirect.com is the cheapest. I like them whole only!

Reply

82 Nikki May 31, 2011 at 1:53 pm

You’re wonderful! I just ordered some and can’t wait to give some of your smoothies a whirl, among other things!
