Homeroom

January 8, 2010

I had breakfast in my homeroom today before I head off to first period :mrgreen:

The Mix:

  • 1 container Stonyfield Pumpkin yogurt
  • ~1/3 cup pumpkin
  • Cinnamon
  • 1/2 banana
  • TJ’s pumpkin butter
  • ~1/3 cup Kashi Warm Cinnamon
  • ~1/4 cup Mix My Granola
  • NUTTZO!

My honda with no wheels [hope that isn't a bad omen!] floating in Christmas Blend Decaf and a new flavor I was sent to review: Caftea Chocolate Cherry Cordial. So far, delish!

Re. brushing my teeth. I always brush them first thing! Wouldn’t leave the house without that. But I usually brush them again after breakfast. I’ve used those Wisps before and LOVE them, but they are so expensive that I can’t see using one everyday! I think I will just finish my coffee and then swish with water a bit. I don’t chew gum (the sugar alcohols mess up my GI tract) so I could also pop an Altoid if I need it :)

I’m off!

Ah i keep forgetting how good pumpkin is in oatmeal. Although i think i’ll have to get a little further from the holidays to try that.

Also wish that My My Granola company shipped outside of the states.

Anyways, your breakfast looks delicious, and i wish i could coax myself out of bed as early as you do.

Hmmmp. I live in Alaska, which is in the states, and many places, including Amazon, won’t ship “grocery” products here. Found this out when I wanted to buy coffee pods for my new Keurig coffee maker.

I do the same thing with brushing my teeth, I need to brush them again! That coffee sounds divine…

Have a great day, Kath!

I normally brush in the am and then rinse with mouthwash after. Works pretty well. I also keep a toothbrush at work and am thankful to work in a place that has toothbrushes and mouthwash on hand when needed :D

That coffee looks good! Can you taste the cherry flavor? I have a 30 minute commute to work and I always drink my coffee in the car. I have started keeping a toothbrush at work just for that reason! Of course, it sounds like you guys hit the ground running so that might not be a possibility for you.

I learned this one from my mom but we both keep toothbrushes in our desks and I keep floss in my purse. People don’t look at me too funny when I brush my teeth in the public restroom at work ;). Good luck with your busy busy days!

20 Foy Update - Cook. Garden. Write. Repeat. January 8, 2010 at 1:47 pm

Flossing in public always makes me think of the movie “Pretty Woman” when Julia Robert’s character won’t tell what she was doing in the restroom or what she is hiding in her hand. When he finally gets her to open her hand all she has is floss. It’s funny that people feel uncomfortable brushing and flossing in front of others. Maybe I’ve shared too many small spaces with groups of people, but I don’t really think twice about it.

One of the woman at my work brushes her teeth after every meal! So just stash a travel toothbrush and tooth paste in a baggie in your purse and brush when you get to the nearest bathroom. I have one in my desk just in case. Happy Friday!!!!

The sugar alcohols mess up your GI tract? What does that mean? I chew LOADS of gum, I’m addicted and I’d love to stop (it’s exspensive :p), would that be a good reason to lol?
Oh my, your breakfast looks amazing!! All the granola and yogurt and nut butter…a bowl of deliciousness :) Have a good day!

I have the same issue with gum! It actually also gives me migraines, probably as a combination of the tension/pressure caused by chewing and the artificial sweeteners. I can’t even have artificial sweeteners in my coffee anymore (though I suppose that’s probably a good thing, right?!).

I carry around a mini-bottle of mouth-wash and some water. That way your breath will be fresh!

I see a lot of women brushing their teeth in the bathroom – you could just try that?

Reply

36 Amanda @ Cakes and Ale January 8, 2010 at 10:10 am

I try not to brush my teeth more than three times max in a day because doing so can erode your enamel, which leads to cavities and other issues. Some people are more senstive to this than others (have thinner enamel) so I don’t know whether or not it matters for everyone…

Are those cheerios in your oats? Looks delicious!

38 Cathy P January 8, 2010 at 10:25 am

I keep some mouthwash in the downstairs bathroom to get the coffee stain and coffeee breath out. I don’t like gum b/c it’s too sweet and the mouthwash helps clean the teeth a bit more, plus it’s fast!

Reply

39 Beth @ DiningAndDishing January 8, 2010 at 10:29 am

I am like you and like to brush my teeth right away! Then I usually have a mint after my morning coffee at work and pack a little toothbrush to freshen up after lunch. Works for me!

I love the fact that you post so early! I’m a teacher and I love checking your blog first thing in the morning. As for brushing, I keep a toothbrush in my desk. I used to be embarrassed to brush my teeth in the middle of the day in the faculty bathroom but I realized that I was being silly. It’s a healthy habit and more people should do it! And, on the embarrassing topic…gum gives me gas. :( I hear that’s fairly common.

This is kind of a bizarre question and not at all trying to offend anyone. but I was wondering about the hubby’s weight loss. It seems that you two eat SO healthfully, but over the course of your blog it looks like hes lost maybe a little more than he needed? I hope this isnt uncalled for, but should we be a lil worried? I think its important to recognize insecurities/body image with the male population as well.

I don’t think you should be worried :) You should see how much bread he eats. And he’s at a perfectly healthy weight for his height.

I brush my teeth before and after too. I wish those wisp things were cheaper because I love them! Maybe Costco sells them in bulk?

61 mrs. smith January 8, 2010 at 12:50 pm

Gum has always made my stomach hurt too! No one else every understands that, but I’m glad to know someone else who both feels the same and has a technical explanation for why!

Hi Kath! I’ve found that sugar alcohols bother me too. but tons of bars have them! Arg! do you know of any yummy bars that don’t have sugar alcohols? i like the doughy kinds, not a big lara bar fan.

Beautiful breakfast bowl, Kath. I’ve been searching high and low for that Stonyfield Pumpkin yogurt, but always end up empty handed at the store. You’d think in a city like New York, with all of its vast excesses I would find it…but alas, no dice.

Have a great day at school! :)

Hey Kath. I am working on my business plan this week. Since its a living document (changes as your biz grows), I revise it every 3-6 months. Even though I have yet to release my product, it’s changed a ton already over the past year when I originally wrote it!

Anyway, wanted to let you know that your RSS feed isn’t working (the one at the top of your home page).

Take care and have a great weekend!
