Turn The Heat Back On

February 20, 2011

8 hours of sleep and a lazy Sunday morning going on here. And the heat still turned off from yesterday’s warmth! I woke up to a chilly 59 degrees in the house.

Something this can’t fix:

I wanted breakfast to involve a smoothie and a muffin. But it was too cold for smoothies so I settled on yogurt instead. Voskos now makes YoGreek, and they sent me a few to try out. What I love: the side of granola! It was good granola too. Very vanilla. I sampled the honey flavor in today’s bowl and liked it a lot. Although I wish these came in plain flavor because I just prefer plain yogurt.

Paired with banana, chia seeds, Faith’s muffin and sunflower butter.

Matt and I are planning some kind of biking today since I have huge blisters on both pinky toes from 6 miles of walking in crappy shoes :( Hoping it’s warmer outside than it is in here!

I was just thinking the same thing. We spent the (very windy) day in Williamsburg yesterday and it was so lovely. Today, it is freezing and my little toes don’t know what to do!! Hope your feet feel better. I’m headed to a vinyasa workshop with my fav teacher – she’ll take care of me :D

59 is cold! I love Voskos yogurt. I must try that YoGreek.

Brrrr! Your morning sounds a bit like mine! I’m trying not to turn the heat on, and a smoothie was my first pick to but I’m kinda rethinking that one ;)
Hope you have a good day!
Love that the yogurt comes with granola on the side, that’s so convenient!

We had a small heat wave in New York on Friday and it got up to 67! Of course, that only lasted a day and now it’s cold again — and really windy! It was still nice to get a glimpse of spring though.

The wind is crazy here – apparently it was hurricane force in some areas!! It was a lovely 60+ degrees just a few days ago but we’re back to 18 degree weather. Love the idea of having the yogurt and granola packed together like that – very easy for packing!

I have only ever had plain yogurt and lemon yogurt. My favorite is the plain as well, because I can jazz it up how I like. I should try new flavors, though, just to expand my horizons!

Hopefully it will warm up – at least it looks like the sun is out!

Vanilla yogurt is my favorite – I love vanilla everything.

Enjoy your bike ride!

We woke up to it being 55 without the heat! Wish we didn’t have to turn it back on either.

A new kind of yogurt? How exciting!

15 Natalia - a side of simple February 20, 2011 at 9:33 am

I prefer plain yogurt, too. I’m not too big on the flavored ones. I think it gives you more room for mix-ins (which, obviously I’m ALL about!).

I want to try that yogurt! It’s like a healthier kind of Yo Crunch… the kind that comes with candy or Oreos to mix in :)

23 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table February 20, 2011 at 10:04 am

I haven’t seen that kind of yogurt yet! Totally agree on the plain flavor – I prefer to add my own. Wouldn’t it be amazing if someone made one with PB sauce on the side?!

24 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) February 20, 2011 at 10:09 am

I prefer plain yogurt, too! Then if I need it on something savory, I have it. Vanilla and berry don’t taste good on chili. :lol:

25 Holly @ Couch Potato Athlete February 20, 2011 at 10:12 am

That yogurt/granola pack is really cute!

We almost turned the heat off a few days ago but I’m glad we didn’t — it is back to being super cold and we’re expecting snow tonight :(

26 Alaina February 20, 2011 at 10:14 am

I miss the warm weather we had! It was in the 60s on Friday and then last night there were flurries! What I wouldn’t give for it to be spring already. Where can I live where it’s spring, summer, fall, then spring again? :-P

I thought coffee could fix everything! :-p. Your breakfast looks delicious this morning. I’m in need of a little healthy comfort. I suppose a bowl of yogurt will simply have to wait until I get home.

I hear you on the blisters. My sneakers are old and my almost 4 mile walk yesterday gave me blisters. I need to upgrade my sneakers – it’s been a long time.

I love chia seeds and can tell a big difference when I have them with breakfast, however I can’t seem to get them down raw. I like them when they are mixed into a smoothie or used for baking. I’m guessing like lots of food, they are more nutritious when eaten raw??

Reply

44 KathEats February 20, 2011 at 2:34 pm

I don’t think their nutritional value would change all that much from raw to in a smoothie or soaked

It’s never too cold for a smoothie ;)

When I have blisters I find that the gel-pad type band aids work best. I dab a bit of neosporin on the pad then leave the band aid on for 2-3 days straight – works every time.

54 Jillian Bean February 20, 2011 at 4:49 pm

Just had to say thank you-totally unrelated to this post-well, maybe a little related with the blister part..;P Read your advice about running a half marathon-time for getting up and eating before and all that. Helped me figure out timing for my first half marathon:) Thanks!

I have a weird question regarding chia seeds. When you first started eating them, did they make your stomach hurt? I like them, but they don’t seem to like me back.

Reply

59 KathEats February 20, 2011 at 8:37 pm

I didn’t notice anything different. Maybe go a little easier at first? They do gel and maybe it’s just an increase in soluble fiber?

I miss Greek yogurt… silly dairy-sensitive tummy!

61 Hannah February 20, 2011 at 8:40 pm

I’d happily accept all the flavoured greek yoghurts in America so that you could have just the plain, as I haven’t found a single greek yoghurt comparable to fage/oikos/voskos here in Australia.

It randomly got cold and rainy here in SoCal, and I am not a fan. Not at all.
