We had the same breakfast (big shock! haha). Layered yogurt bowls are so good. I wish I had that actual bowl though – I’m totally swooning over it!

I was thinking about a yogurt bowl this morning, but they just don’t keep me feeling that full like oatmeal or even a smoothie does. So, I had toast and a little leftover of Ashley’s egg/quinoa bake. Hope that keeps me full until lunch! I work in an office, so sometimes I get boredom hunger. It can be tough to ignore.

It’s the magic of sunflower butter. That is all.

32 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey August 25, 2011 at 8:39 am

I can’t seem to get on the blueberries and nut (or seed) butter train. Bananas? Definitely. Apples? Yep. But berries? It just doesn’t appeal. Perhaps I am missing something fantastic? ;)

Can’t wait to hear the news!

I absolutely love the colors on that mason jar linen… seriously orange and turquoise are my two favorite colors right now… I currently have orange flowers and turquoise place mats on our kitchen table :-D

I love the idea of freezing those sunflower balls and using them as oatmeal toppers later… it looks like a great recipe!

Kath,

I have recently started reading your blog each day! I lovvvvee it! I was wondering (as someone as obsessed with the wonders of oatmeal as you are) how many calories do you aim for for breakfast? I am a runner as well, so I was curious to compare with you. Thanks for your help!

Reply

69 KathEats August 25, 2011 at 12:39 pm

Melissa,
I don’t aim for a calorie amount, but I know my breakfasts are usually between 400-600. They often last me 4-5 hours to lunchtime without needing a snack.
