Wake Up San Francisco

February 8, 2010

Someone please come wake me up!! Trying to fend off the grump today. Monday + lack of sleep + winter.

But something to be really happy about:

Overnight oats :mrgreen:

Last night I combined the rest of a TJ’s greek container (maybe 1/3 to 1/2 a cup left total?) with:

  • 1/3 cup raw Quaker Old Fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup 1% milk
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin

And this morning:

I’m a little tea cup, short and stout

More Tea Spot samples! I’m really enjoying the variety, and their black tea is excellent. Strong and not bitter.

“wake up san francisco” = ha! haven’t heard that one in a while :)

good morning!!!!!!! have a fabulous day =D


2 Jessica @ How Sweet It Is February 8, 2010 at 6:33 am

Those oats would wake me up, too! :)


3 Kristen @ Change of Pace February 8, 2010 at 6:50 am

Looks like someone has a case of the Monday’s πŸ˜‰ Give it another month or so and you’ll be wishing it was cold again :)


4 Stacey February 8, 2010 at 7:00 am

That oatmeal alone would start my day off on the right foot! Hope you have an un-grumpy day πŸ˜€


5 christie @ honoring health February 8, 2010 at 7:30 am

Ah, the Monday blues. Common around these parts πŸ˜€ I have them, today, too. I was so hoping for a message that there was too much ice on the roads at work to go in. No such luck. Going to make it a good day anyway :)


6 Marisa (Loser for Life) February 8, 2010 at 7:37 am

I love that TJ’s plain greek yogurt. I have to try overnight oats again!

Great deal at OpenSky!!!


7 Freya @ foodfitnessandfreya.wordpress.com February 8, 2010 at 7:48 am

No matter what time of day or how full I am, everytime I read about your oats, I get that little bit more hungry…maybe it’s lunchtime now :)
Have a good day!


8 Annie @ stronghealthyfit February 8, 2010 at 7:50 am

I hear you on being tired or winter… February seems to just drag on. It will be over soon! Your oats look delicious, i might try something similar tomorrow.


9 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg February 8, 2010 at 8:08 am

lol…Wake Up San Francisco! Gotta love Aunt Becky :-)

Have a great day– I always feel a lot slower and more tired in the winter months. Luckily spring is right around the corner!


10 Simply Life February 8, 2010 at 8:11 am

wow what a great way to raise money for such an important cause!


11 zestycook February 8, 2010 at 8:21 am

These overnight oats are looking good Kath…. Now wake up and get movin’!



12 Estela @ Weekly Bite February 8, 2010 at 8:22 am

YUM! Delicious looking oats!! Have a great day!


13 Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) February 8, 2010 at 8:32 am

Oats making getting out of bed worth it! πŸ˜€


14 Sam (Merit to the Carrot) February 8, 2010 at 8:38 am

Overnight oats on the menu this week for me! You got me with this one. Too bad I don’t have any chia seeds :(


15 Lindsay February 8, 2010 at 8:43 am

Hi Kath,
those overnight oats look so fantastic! Do you eat them cold, or do you heat them up in the microwave before you eat them?


16 Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) February 8, 2010 at 8:50 am

At least you had a brilliant start to your day!! I can relate to the Monday morning grumps. Gotta keep reminding myself that spring is on the way!! πŸ˜€

Hope you have a wonderful Monday, Kath!


17 Jessica @ The Process of Healing February 8, 2010 at 9:14 am

Yum yum those oats look fantastic!! I have not tried pumpkin in overnight oats yet.. hm…

I was too late for the coupon but I still ordered Naturally Nutty Peanut Butter. I’ve been wanting to for a while now but I keep putting it off… I figured this was a sign haha


18 Lauren @ Eater not a runner February 8, 2010 at 9:35 am

I need someone to wake me up as well!! I’m sleeping at my desk πŸ˜‰


19 Nutritious Foodie February 8, 2010 at 9:38 am

hmmm tea… I am a big tea drinker.. I average at about 8 cups a day…


20 [email protected] February 8, 2010 at 9:41 am

I drink tea every morning…religiously. I always get it screaming hot (literally, the tea kettle screaming) then I let it steep for five min (in the meantime I am fixing breakfast) then take the tea bag out and by the time I finish eating my tea is the perfect temperature….everytime :-)


21 Katie February 8, 2010 at 9:48 am

Those TeaSpots look really interesting. Strong, black tea is my favorite. I always let mine steep way beyond the recommended time.


22 Cait (Cait's Plate) February 8, 2010 at 9:49 am

Geez it really is everyone’s birthday today! It’s my 25th birthday today too!!

So funny you highlighted that Create Your Day thing because I JUST saw it yesterday and meant to call it out on my blog as well! It was so cute!

That breakfast looks delish :)


23 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:03 pm



24 Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope February 8, 2010 at 9:50 am

Loving the overnight oats! Hope the Monday-itis goes away soon. πŸ˜‰


25 ellen eats beets February 8, 2010 at 9:51 am

LOVE eating my oats out of the almost empty TJ’s yogurt container. Not the prettiest bowl, but it leaves no dishes to clean!!

I am an avid tea drinker and that tea looks yum!


26 Chelsea (Chelsea's Chew and Run Fun) February 8, 2010 at 9:53 am

Those overnight oats look fabulous! Once I make a dent in my already huge nut butter collection, I have to get my hands on some of this magical Nutzo stuff.

Have a great week!


27 Emily February 8, 2010 at 10:01 am

I’m just catching up on your posts from over the weekend and saw your 1/2 Marathon training plan. I was wondering why – in all of your training runs – you are never planning on running further than 11 miles? I too am training for a 1/2 marathon and had planned to gradually up the milage of my weekly long run so that I run 13 miles at least once or twice prior to the race so that my body is used to the distance. I’m curious to hear your thoughts?


28 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:04 pm

That’s just how Sarah designed my plan. I’m not sure which plan she modeled it on, but that’s how it was. I might end up doing 13 – I’m not sure!


29 Amanda (Two Boos Who Eat) February 8, 2010 at 10:03 am

I love your overnight oat combo this am!


30 Paige(Running Around Normal) February 8, 2010 at 10:10 am

Mmm overnight oats! Haven’t had those in a few days (too long! haha)
Hoep your mood improves as your day goes on :)


31 Allison K February 8, 2010 at 10:19 am

“wake up San Francisco” reminds me of Full House! I loved that show.


32 Ally (Exercise and Pies) February 8, 2010 at 10:22 am

Love overnight oats :)

Happy monday everybody… i’m already dragging


33 skinnyrunner February 8, 2010 at 10:25 am

im liking that tea spot thing. happy monday!


34 Sarah R February 8, 2010 at 10:38 am

Happy Monday! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Quick question–did Matt take down his blog? I was thinking of getting some home brew stuff for my husband and was going to see if he had any posts about it, but couldn’t get to his site!


35 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Yes, sadly, it’s all gone :(


36 Heather February 8, 2010 at 10:41 am

thanks to you I am going to try greek yogurt for the first time! Is it weird I am nervous about it?


37 Beth @ DiningAndDishing February 8, 2010 at 10:51 am

February really is a major birthday month!! Which is funny since it’s the shortest month. My bday is in February and I sure have to share the spotlight with a lot of people. hehe.


38 Jenn (www.j3nn.net) February 8, 2010 at 10:53 am

Those overnight oats look very filling! I wish I loved pumpkin as much as you do, I get tired of it quickly lol. :)



39 Lauren February 8, 2010 at 10:58 am

Mmm I love greek yogurt in my oats, but I think it’s even better hot! :)


40 Lara February 8, 2010 at 11:03 am

Try looking at 20+ inches of snow out your window. Talk about grumpy :)
Nuttzo is ah-mazing. Not usually a crunch nut butter fan but totally in love with this stuff.


41 Stef February 8, 2010 at 11:48 am

i’m trying to fend off the grump today too. ogling your yummy breakfast is certainly helping!


42 Cynthia (It All Changes) February 8, 2010 at 12:11 pm

I think overnight oats in the yogurt container is my favorite way to do it.


43 Foy Update - Cook. Garden. Write. Repeat. February 8, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Put on some good music that always seems to be one of the best mood lifters.


44 Cole February 8, 2010 at 12:22 pm

The oats. Oh my goodness. You need to come make breakfast for me!


45 Hannah February 8, 2010 at 12:42 pm

Hope you’re already feeling wonderfully bright and bubbly again! Overnight oats must help a little bit with the grumpiness, surely :) Delicious eats always do for me! (Says she, eating chocolate while waiting for yet another delayed flight to start boarding hours after it was meant to!)


46 Light Delight with TouTou February 8, 2010 at 12:48 pm

The tea cup looks really cool πŸ˜€ Like it!


47 Angela (The Lady Loves to Eat) February 8, 2010 at 1:02 pm

Your breakfast looks awesome! I hope it helped the grumpiness!


48 Chelsea February 8, 2010 at 1:03 pm

I thought maybe you were going to say that you were coming out here again. A girl can hope, right?


49 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:04 pm

Haha – I wish!!


50 lynn (The Actors Diet) February 8, 2010 at 1:20 pm

is your title in reference to “full house?!?!”

and, if not…um…no, kath, i do not watch “full house,” what do you mean?!


51 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Of course!!! <3 Danny Tanner


52 Heather (Heather's Dish) February 8, 2010 at 2:22 pm

those overnight oats look great…any tips for warming them? i’m not the biggest fan of cold oats… :)


53 Kath February 8, 2010 at 8:05 pm

I eat them chilled. If you want warm oats, I wouldn’t put yogurt in it.


54 tiffany February 9, 2010 at 6:07 am

wondering how many calories is in the breakfast combo? (overnight oats above)


55 Kath February 9, 2010 at 6:09 am

I don’t know, I don’t count anymore! You could tally up the ingredients in a nutrition calculator
