Drinkable Sprinkles

August 4, 2011


Whole lotta packing going on!


Whole lotta running!

I ran a different this morning downtown and back and ended up doing 5 miles. I think that’s the most I’ve ran all summer!? It was kind of hard, but a good run overall. I had to stop and walk at the top of 2 big hills!

Back at home overnight oats were waiting for me after a cold shower


The Usual Mix

  • 1/3 cup raw oats
  • 1/3 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch cinnamon

–> Fridge overnight

This morning: Cville Cluster, Jam According to Daniel and Smucker’s Natural


Also on the menu: Adagio Tea. I blog reader told me the coconut was amazing and I ended up ordering three of their vanillay flavors, including BIRTHDAY CAKE!


I tried the birthday this morning – it has actual sprinkles in it!


It was a nice smooth black tea, but I wish it had had a slightly sweeter taste (it wasn’t sweet at all). Very good though! Can’t wait to try the coconut!


Karen is taking me to the airport in an hour, so I’ve got to gather the 1,000 little things I need for my trip like my cell phone charger and snacks. I hate this part of packing!

Still listening to movie tunes

Cool teas! I love fun and creative tea blends.


2 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat August 4, 2011 at 8:45 am

I’m the worst packer ever, no matter how many lists I make… I still need to try the PB&J combo for my oats. Have a great day!


3 Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing August 4, 2011 at 8:47 am

Packing is my least favorite… but at least you got some sprinkles in to start your day! 😉 Smooth travels!


4 Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance August 4, 2011 at 8:50 am

I hate packing too :( Have a good time!


5 Cait's Plate August 4, 2011 at 8:53 am

Ah good luck and safe travels! Have SO MUCH fun!

Congrats on the run – there’s no better way to kick off a day of travel :)

PS – Sometimes it scares me how similar our brain seems to work in terms of food. ALL I wanted this morning was peanut butter and jelly (regular) oats. I didn’t get to have them, but I’ve literally been dreaming about it for days! I feel like a part of me got to have it since you did for breakfast so thank you for helping squash that craving 😉


6 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table August 4, 2011 at 8:54 am

Birthday tea?! The sprinkles in that are awesome. Maybe some appropriately flavored creamer would be in order?


7 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey August 4, 2011 at 8:54 am

Packing goes so much more smoothly for me with a list. Otherwise I’m likely to forget something super-important – like a charger or the like.
Good luck, and safe travels to BlogHer. :)



8 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes August 4, 2011 at 8:58 am

Wow! those teas sound so cool! have fun on your trip :)


9 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) August 4, 2011 at 8:58 am

Ugh I hate packing! Have a good flight :)


10 Freya (Brit Chick Runs) August 4, 2011 at 8:58 am

Birthday cake tea!!?? You guys have the craziest flavours! I saw chilli flavour tea today..it sounded foul :/


11 Angel7 August 4, 2011 at 8:59 am

Coconut tea? … I have never heard of or tried coconut tea. Now that sounds amazing!!!



12 Holly @ The Runny Egg August 4, 2011 at 9:00 am

Those teas sound really good — I love that it has sprinkles in there!

Yep, the things you pack last are what you use every day and are probably some of the most important things to bring with you!


13 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife August 4, 2011 at 9:00 am

Yeah, the end of packing is the worst, b/c I tend to forget the little things!!

I did a little over 4 miles today (HIIT intervals)–running, and it felt amazing!!! I love how a good, fast run can perk up the day. ENJOY your trip :)


14 rumfunandsun August 4, 2011 at 9:01 am

I am an overpacker which makes it way worse! Have lots of fun on your trip!!!


15 Lauren August 4, 2011 at 9:03 am

Have a great trip!! 😀 My grandma told me you said hi, and thanks for the tip about the muffin too…..I’m sure we’ll be back very soon! That tea is so cool, I love the actual sprinkles in it. So funny!


16 Hilliary @ Happily Ever Healthy August 4, 2011 at 9:06 am

Have a great trip! I always over pack, and put off packing till the last minute! I am so bad at that!


17 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat August 4, 2011 at 9:08 am

That is so cool about the sprinkles! I love anything that’s vanilla scented/flavoured.. I think I’ll be checking these out!


18 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs August 4, 2011 at 10:24 am

Persimmon Tree Tea has this Earl Grey Creme that is the best vanilla tea I’ve ever had! http://www.persimmontreetea.com/black-tea/earl-grey-creme-tea.html <3


19 Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews August 4, 2011 at 9:10 am

Thanks a lot for sharing these teas! I definitely want to try these yummy flavors.


20 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio August 4, 2011 at 9:23 am

I love loose tea. I need to buy some for the fall/winter, so it’s fun to read your reviews!! Have a great trip.


21 Karin (allpointswhole) August 4, 2011 at 9:31 am

That tea looks awesome!


22 Khushboo August 4, 2011 at 9:37 am

Birthday cake tea- say whaaaaaat! Tip: I have a permanent memo in my Blackberry with last minute packing essentials like charger, toothbrush etc…saves so much stress each time i travel!


23 Haleigh August 4, 2011 at 9:41 am

Overnight oats are the perfect breakfast during the summer! I’ve never been much of a morning tea drinker. I always drink a few cups before going to bed though.


24 Lexi @ A Spoonful of Sunshine August 4, 2011 at 9:42 am

Sprinkles..in tea? Wow that’s awesome!

And I hate packing all the little gadgets + snacks to…Grrr!


25 Nikita August 4, 2011 at 9:59 am

What a cute idea for those teas! I’m switching up my morning overnight oats for some overnight chia pudding this morning. Do you ever have just plain chia pudding?


26 KathEats August 4, 2011 at 4:50 pm

I haven’t made any basic chia puddings yet. I guess because I really enjoy yogurt!


27 lynn @ the actor's diet August 4, 2011 at 10:12 am

no matter how hot it gets, i can never take a cold shower – brrrrr!


28 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs August 4, 2011 at 10:21 am

I love Adagio teas – Foxtrot is my favorite!! They have the best fruit teas I’ve had anywhere – raspberry patch and wild strawberry are regular cold brews in my fridge :)


29 Suzanne August 4, 2011 at 10:33 am

I love tea! I just emailed them and asked for some samples. Lets hope they send me some. :)

Have a safe trip!


30 Stacy @ Say It With Sprinkles August 4, 2011 at 10:34 am

I love the idea of birthday cake tea! Or birthday cake anything, for that matter! Have an amazing & safe trip, Kath!


31 Amanda August 4, 2011 at 10:36 am

Congrats on the run! Have a good flight!


32 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles August 4, 2011 at 10:44 am

I love your butterfly print in the background. Very festive. The tea looks great too!


33 Cait @ Cait hates Cake August 4, 2011 at 10:49 am

Safe travels! Bet it felt nice to get in a solid run before your trip!


34 Hillary August 4, 2011 at 10:50 am

Birthday cake TEA?! Shut the front door!

Safe travels, Kath. I’m flying today, too!


35 Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites August 4, 2011 at 11:01 am

LOVE the jewel-toned butterflies.

Yay for the 5 mile run!! Last week I mapped a 4 mile route I had never run before. About 2 miles in where I had to make a right the street was essentially a complete vertical incline! Haha At least that’s how my brain interpreted it at the time. I was like ‘no way am I running up that hill!!!’ It would have killed the rest of the run.

Have a safe trip and good luck packing!


36 kaila @ healthy helper! August 4, 2011 at 11:05 am

that is so cool that the tea has sprinkles in it!!! haha I have never seen anything like that before!


37 Aine @ Something to Chew Over August 4, 2011 at 11:14 am

Yum those teas look delish!

Safe trip :)


38 Kelley August 4, 2011 at 11:24 am

Oh wow, that sounds awesome. Yum. Safe flight! See you in San Diego!


39 Kristen, Sweetly August 4, 2011 at 11:27 am

I love Adagio. They have awesome deals for samples, so you can just get a little bit to try new teas. I love the blueberry black tea, but Valentine’s is my favorite! Black tea with dried strawberries and chocolate chips. It’s totally worth the mess in the mesh afterward.


40 Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats August 4, 2011 at 11:28 am

Yum! Those oats look tasty! I have never tried jelly on my overnight oats. Safe travels!


41 Maria August 4, 2011 at 11:28 am

Your overnight oats always look so delicious!


42 kris (everyday oats) August 4, 2011 at 11:30 am

woah birthday tea?? Thats pretty sweet! And coconut sounds awesome!


43 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) August 4, 2011 at 11:31 am

Have an excellent trip, Kath!! :)


44 RhodeyGirl August 4, 2011 at 11:31 am

Have fun at BlogHer!

I love that tablecloth/kitchen towel/placemat!


45 Margo @ peanut butter trees August 4, 2011 at 12:31 pm

Those teas sound really neat! And I love all the toppings on your oatmeal, and that spoon is one of my favorites :)


46 Kerry August 4, 2011 at 12:47 pm

Have a fab time! Wish I could attend but maybe one day!


47 daphna August 4, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Looks great! Are you still shipping out C-Ville cluster? I’d love to order some.


48 KathEats August 4, 2011 at 4:51 pm

I am not yet selling it individually. We are hoping to do another OpenSky order soon with our two granolas


49 Danielle September 16, 2013 at 8:10 pm

What is a comparison brand to C-Ville Clusters. They seem like the perfect topping for overnight oats! I can’t seem to find them online. I am new to your blog and I assume it’s only sold where you live. Love your blog by the way! But I would really love to know what I could get to have the same C-Ville Cluster taste. Do you know if I could possible make my own at home? Thank you so much!


50 KathEats September 17, 2013 at 11:42 am

You can actually order them from our website, http://greatharvestcville.com/bread-gifts


51 Jacqui August 4, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I love these teas, they are some of my favorites!


52 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen August 4, 2011 at 1:45 pm

Those teas sound delicious, especially the coconut. Portsmouth Tea Company has a sweet almond tea which is probably the most delicious tea I’ve ever had. They sell it in a local restaurant and I loved it so much I ordered it online. It’s super pricey though so it’s only used as a treat 😉 Enjoy your trip!


53 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin August 4, 2011 at 2:18 pm

Those are some awesome tea flavours! It’s too bad the birthday tea didn’t taste like actual cake. 😛 I bet the coconut one will be delicious though!


54 Molly @ RDexposed August 4, 2011 at 6:49 pm

I now have my boy wanting eating either overnight oats, oatmeal, or oat smoothies with me. Another point for team oats.


55 Jen @familyfoodfitnessandfun August 4, 2011 at 7:25 pm

mmm…your oats look so good! Those teas sound great too…may have to try them :)


56 Hannah August 4, 2011 at 7:43 pm

Can’t wait to hear how the coconut tea is!


57 Dana S August 5, 2011 at 11:02 am

Love the blue bowl for your oatmeal. Where can I find one like that? Thanks.


58 Kath August 5, 2011 at 11:11 am

It’s a Buddha Bowl and was a former OpenSky special


59 Susan August 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm

You can find them at Uncommon Goods. I noticed them a loooooong time ago when I was looking through the catalog. They’re still available.
