This is my last week of summer, although my first class starts Wednesday night so really last week was!! I hate to say it because I know the grass is greener, but I’m really looking forward to having a structured life again. That said, I hope to get the most out of this week as I can – and with a trip to Boston on Thursday, that shouldn’t be too hard.
Today was blueberry + speltberry oats. We also bought soy milk yesterday (Harris Teeter Vanilla is my favorite) so that was a fun change. I think it changes the taste of the oats just slightly.
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup soy milk, 1/3 cup water
- 1/4 cup speltberries
- Salt + vanilla bean paste
- Handful blueberries
- Walnut-Pom Granola Plank
- Spoonful AB
I just ordered a 3-pack of Blueberry Vanilla Crackle granola planks!! Can’t wait for them to arrive! I checked for them in EarthFare yesterday with no luck. I went to customer service and asked if they would consider carrying them. She said they’d check and get back to me but it’s a matter of shelf space. I also requested the Peanut Butter Cookie LaraBar. I think they will definitely order some of those. I’ve checked at TJ’s, HT, Lowes and EF now for the new flavor and can’t find it anywhere! If anyone wants to coordinate an exchange program – PB LaraBar for a bread product, send me an email!
I also had a small cup of Tiramisu coffee with soymilk (no sweetener). I missed the splenda, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. I’ve been drinking my tea with just milk and have learned to like that fine. That’s 2 days in a row of coffee, so tomorrow I’m going to skip it to avoid getting addicted again.
Race For The Cure: Team KERF
I have decided to run in Race for the Cure this year – and form a KERF team while I’m at it! Breast cancer has affected many people in my life. My Grandma Younger and mother-in-law Karen are both survivors, and several family friends have recently been diagnosed. The husband and I are hoping to raise $1,026 (my birthday!) as a gift from KathEats.com to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. We would love even the smallest contribution. Or better yet, join us on race day as part of the KERF Team!
The race is on October 4, and that afternoon is the Great Grapes Wine Festival. I’ll be running and wine tasting I would LOVE for any of you within reasonable traveling distance to join the KERF Team and run with us! So far we have two participants: the husband and me!
