As it turns out, it’s ME who is filling the OpenSky bags by hand Winking smile

But I don’t mind because I <3 you guys!

I was thinking on my [hot] bike ride in that on days when I run I eat breakfast much later (like 8:30 vs. 7) but still eat lunch at the same time.

However, I proved myself wrong today! I didn’t even want to think about eating until well after 1 and had lunch at 2. I still wasn’t even that hungry. So odd!

IMG_3567 (640x427)

I had a Monticello Garden on Dakota. The hummus was extra lemony and thick today – love it!

IMG_3570 (640x427)

Watermelon jello shots on the side

IMG_3568 (640x427)

[just kidding – not jello at all! No idea why they look so cubed!]

Had a few clusters for dessert. They are hopefully shipping out tomorrow to OpenSky’s warehouse to ship to you!

Until the evening…

That hat looks adorable on you!


2 Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles July 13, 2011 at 1:47 pm

Dang, that watermelon has such deep color! It’s the perfect summer treat. :)

I know~haha I was wanting to grab it off the screen!!


4 Cait's Plate July 13, 2011 at 1:47 pm

Yaaaaaaaay! So excited for those babies – I hope you made my bag extra clustery 😉

Thank you for filling them all up for us! I don’t know whether to say “hopefully there aren’t too many to fill!” or “hopefully there are A LOT!” – both could be good things but I’m assuming a lot will be the better of the two options so I’m going with that.

I’m so happy I get to support Great Harvest and what you guys are doing (even if from afar) – but I DO still hope to make it down there one day for a visit :)

Also – I had hummus for lunch today too, but yours just totally trumped mine…


5 Nikki T July 13, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Must.convince.OpenSky.to ship to Canadaaaaa!!!!! I want that granola!


6 Baking 'n' Books July 13, 2011 at 2:31 pm

Yeah that would be nice.

Hunger is weird – if I’m ‘hungry’ but get stuck in a meeting for an extra hour, then afterwards I may not feel hungry at all. I still eat though 😉


7 Lisa @ Sunny Seed Stories July 13, 2011 at 1:49 pm

Maybe it’s just getting too hot to eat (gasp). You should make sure to keep your A/C on just in case! 😉


8 Andrea @ Onion in My Hair July 13, 2011 at 1:50 pm

You are gorgeous in all these pics! 😀

10 Freya (Brit Chick Runs) July 13, 2011 at 1:50 pm

I find the same thing with running! I can have breakfast 2hrs later than normal after a long run, but still eat lunch at the same time- although sometimes I NEVER get hungry after a run. It’s weird :/
Have a lovely afternoon!


11 Hillary July 13, 2011 at 1:51 pm

Your hat is downright adorable. Love it.


12 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) July 13, 2011 at 1:52 pm

Yum, that granola is so chunky and delicious looking!


13 birdie to be July 13, 2011 at 1:55 pm

Just ordered!!! :)


14 Holly @ The Runny Egg July 13, 2011 at 1:57 pm

The watermelon is cut into such perfect cubes — it does almost look like jello.

And those hunks of granola — I love the big chunks like that.


15 Lesley Lifting Life July 13, 2011 at 1:58 pm

Love the hat!


16 Maria July 13, 2011 at 1:59 pm

Just placed my order. I can’t wait for that cluster granola! :) Thanks, Kath.


17 Kim @ Life Analytical July 13, 2011 at 2:12 pm

That sandwich looks tasty! I love my hummus extra lemony. And you’re so freakin’ cute.


18 [email protected] July 13, 2011 at 2:13 pm

LOVE the hat! Where did you get it!?


19 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Thanks, it’s from Loehmann’s


20 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat July 13, 2011 at 2:14 pm

I think you need some stickers that say “hand-scooped by Kath” on them!


21 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey July 13, 2011 at 2:23 pm

I ate breakfast later today but still ate lunch at the same time. I kind of liked it because I didn’t get hungry in the middle of the morning!


22 Robyn @ Blueberries and Oats July 13, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Very sweet of your to bag all that oatmeal personally! ~.^


23 Christine (The Raw Project) July 13, 2011 at 2:47 pm

Cute pics, how fun! I always seem to be hungry for lunch at the same time even when I have early vs. later breakfasts.


24 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 13, 2011 at 2:50 pm

that sandwich looks TO die for!! I never eat lunch or b-fast the same every day…gotta go with when I am hungry! (But it is never a larger gap than 4 hours. heh) 😉


25 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen July 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

The hummus almost looks like egg salad. I barely ate lunch, this is looking really good right now :)


26 Joanne July 13, 2011 at 2:53 pm

I didn’t know what Open Sky was so I opened the page and low and behold, a picture of you and your clusters popped up. Very cool.


27 Krystina (Organically Me) July 13, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Kath, your body looks rockin’ lately. All the body pump must be paying off. 😉


28 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 3:05 pm

Well thanks!


29 Heather P July 13, 2011 at 3:19 pm

Now I’m even more excited to get my GH goodies knowing who filled them :). Thanks Kath!


30 Kristen @ Change of Pace July 13, 2011 at 3:19 pm

You really do look super cute in the hat! Plus I think periwinkle is your color 😉


31 Vanessa July 13, 2011 at 3:37 pm

Yay!! Can’t wait to get some GH C’ville goodies!! I’ve had the pancake mix before and loved it! I’m really looking forward to the granola though!! Hope you made it extra clustery :-)


32 Brittany @ Ittybitsofbalance July 13, 2011 at 3:42 pm

oo! Gotta get one of those bags now that I know they were packed by hand 😉


33 Angel7 July 13, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Everyone gets a little love in every bag of oatmeal. Maybe you should also put your signature on each bag :) I mean… You are a cele-bread-y (LOL) :)



34 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 3:56 pm



35 katie @KatieDid July 13, 2011 at 4:17 pm

you rock the hat so well! It’s adorable! So much love into the granola, I’m sure it’ll sell out super fast!


36 Karin July 13, 2011 at 4:33 pm


I AM SO excited that you are offering the C-ville bundle on opensky. What a wonderful surprise to wake up to. I am can NOT wait to get mine in the mail. I love reading your blog and can’t wait to try the items you love so much!

P.S. That hat is absolutely adorable on you :)


37 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 4:35 pm
38 Karen July 13, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Could you and Matt be any cuter in these granola-posing photos?! Your pride in sharing with us your hand-made creations – real, simple, delicious food that you believe in – just warms my heart! :)


39 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes July 13, 2011 at 5:01 pm

I love the watermelon in a jar! looks so perfect. ps-I got soo excited when I got my open sky email today 😉


40 rumfunandsun July 13, 2011 at 5:06 pm

OMG that watermelon looks so yummy!!! I almost had a heart attack when I saw that watermelons are 7.49 each down here! When I left Indiana I think they were like 2.99! So sad, I can’t at this time feel comfortable paying that!


41 Dana July 13, 2011 at 5:08 pm

Hey Kath!
Are your bags recyclable/biodegradable? I’m always searching to buy products packaged in this way..can be tricky though.


42 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 5:17 pm

Unfortunately no


43 Molly @ RDexposed July 13, 2011 at 5:44 pm

I’m loving the hat! Where can I find it?


44 Khushboo July 13, 2011 at 5:54 pm

That watermelon looks like perfect summer dessert! So juicy!


45 Stef July 13, 2011 at 5:56 pm

Do you ever go for a run after getting home from your bike commute? I often bike for transportation and prefer to run at night, but can’t seem to do both on the same day after long slogs up hills on my bike. Are morning runs before the commute what you’ve found to work best?


46 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 8:42 pm

I can’t run in the evenings – I’m either too hungry or too full! And you’re right that after biking I would probably be too tired too


47 Mary (What's Cookin' with Mary) July 13, 2011 at 6:03 pm

Loving that hat on you Kath. 😉


48 Jessica @ The Process of Healing July 13, 2011 at 6:33 pm

Even with my super tight budget, I am for SURE debating ordering.. I’ve been dying to have the granola, the oatmeal sounds amazing, and well, I love pancakes. 16 hours to decide…


49 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 8:42 pm

It might sell out before then!


50 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles July 13, 2011 at 6:36 pm

I love that you are dusted with flour. The sign of a true baker! I’m loving your entrepreneurial spirit!


51 Nadine July 13, 2011 at 6:44 pm

It took me as long as it took to push ORDER to decide! SO excited…!! Thanks for making this happen!!


52 Erika White July 13, 2011 at 6:47 pm

Just wanted to say that you’re an inspiration and a constant reminder to enjoy life :)


53 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Aw thanks :)


54 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga July 13, 2011 at 6:57 pm

Watermelon jello shots on the side = do they have rum or vodka or something in them? I could use some. Just finished moving. Omg. Long day!

You look awesome in lavender. That shirt just looks stellar on you!


55 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) July 13, 2011 at 7:23 pm

You look so cute in a hat! :)

Signed, sealed, and delivered granola. Very cool.


56 Sarah July 13, 2011 at 7:28 pm

The hat looks super cute on you Kath!

I totally feel you on the change in meal times and how it totally can throw us for a loop! I eat Bfast at 745 every day…. If I eat later than that…even an hour later… it takes me forever to be hungry for lunch and I usually want something much lighter.

Again, The super perfectly cubed watermelon is totally epic! Haha cheers!


57 lynn @ the actor's diet July 13, 2011 at 7:48 pm

you’re gonna need one of those machines like you see on “unwrapped”


58 Chetney (Czesia's Adventures) July 13, 2011 at 8:09 pm

I love that hat, I bought one just like that today! I saw you this morning on my Sparkpeople.com homepage!


59 Mary Legare Whaley July 13, 2011 at 8:24 pm

I LOVE this sandwich creation! I made a similar compilation for lunch every day last week. I used whole grain bread, sliced cucumber, tomatoes, romaine, and this really great edamame hummus. Thanks, as always, for these delicious inspirational meals!


60 Paula July 13, 2011 at 8:33 pm

You are selling your own granola??? I am going to check it out right now!! WIll you be considering any other items? You make some fantastic looking stuff like that bread pudding. They don’t have that at my local GH.


61 Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out July 13, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Wahoo, Kath!! Thanks for filling the bags. And there is no shame in jell-o shots in the daytime. Party on, Wayne. 😉


62 Hilary July 13, 2011 at 8:57 pm

Very cute in your hat!


63 Margo @ peanut butter trees July 13, 2011 at 9:08 pm

Isn’t is strange how occasionally you’ll have a suuuper hungry day, and then one like you had when you’re not so hungry? I’ve been on a two day very hungry streak, don’t know why?! Wonder if it had to do with weight training cuz I stepped mine up this week, so maybe I need to feed my muscles! Who knows…


64 KathEats July 13, 2011 at 9:09 pm

I think it’s 100% hormonal!


65 Aine @ Something to Chew Over July 14, 2011 at 3:23 am

I want those clusters! :)


66 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs July 14, 2011 at 6:50 am

If you had watermelon jello shots on the side of your sandwich for lunch I’d have to kiss you 😛 I just went on a 3 day cookie-monster esque rampage where I seemingly ate all day but the past 2 days haven’t been able to eat anything… our bodies do weird things!


67 Hope July 14, 2011 at 7:29 am

I love your hat! It looks so cute on you! Looks like you had a very busy day but it’s totally worth it! :)


68 SillySavage July 15, 2011 at 11:16 am

That hat is so cute. It’s proof that you could totally rock some bangs.
