I was up at 6:15 this morning after a little bit of a rough night’s sleep to see my guests on their way to Asheville. I offered Great Harvest bread and oatmeal, but they settled on LaraBars instead. Once they’d left after 7, I went back to bed for a nap! 45 minutes later I got back up and was ready for a delicious breakfast.
And I was ecstatic to try this after seeing Heather use an almost-empty nut butter jar as an oatmeal receptacle – GENIOUS!
I waited until I had < 2 tbsp left and today was the day.
The oatmeal mix:
- 1/3 cup oats, 2/3 cup water, 1/3 cup soy milk, pinch salt, 1 small super-ripe banana
Stirred in at end:
- 2 tbsp wheatberries, cinnamon, vanilla, 1 tbsp flax, small handful blueberries
I took a scoop off the bottom to plunge into the top layer before adding the oats –
But the bottom was heavenly too!
Peppermint green tea
Can’t wait to do this again! I have 2 more jars that are a few servings away from being ready. Of course I could go ahead and eat them now, which would be amazing, but I don’t think 400-500 calories in nut butter plus oats is the most moderate way to start the day 😉
I think I’m headed out on a biking adventure to Great Harvest + Trader Joe’s (next door neighbors) to pick up a few more groceries to supplement the farmer’s market veggies. I’ll probably take some ice packs in a lunchbox in my backpack to bring home some chilled things.
Other than that, I’ve got some fun errands to run (Old Navy, Best Buy) and not much else on the agenda.
