We Are The Champions

December 22, 2012


Good morning fellow humans! Glad you’re all still here.


Guess it turns out that a yogurt bowl became my first meal in the new world – Greek yogurt topped with banana, cranberry sauce, Cville Cluster granola, chia seeds and Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter.


I just love breakfasts that don’t require doing dishes : )


Lunch today was a deconstructed sandwich on a bowl. I was thinking about having a herby turkey + cheese sandwich on Mediterranean Olive bread, but something about eating it with a fork was more appealing, so I just put all of the ingredients on a salad.


Greens and veggies dressed in olive oil and salt plus Applegate herbed turkey, marcona almonds, cheddar cheese cubes, white bean hummus and olive bread on top



After lunch I had a mug of Pero and then much later, a mug of microwaved apple with raisins, raw oats and sunbutter on top.


Matt and I took the little raccoon out this evening to celebrate Champion Brewing’s Grand Opening!




We shared this sampler of their latest (two are different from the one’s I had last time)


We walked back home in the freezing cold. It’s like Montana out there! (=coldest experience of my life being there in January)


For dinner we kept things simple and reheated the black bean soup from Monday night (I really didn’t care for this soup). The avocado and Greek yogurt topping with a little hot sauce made it tastier. Olive bread hunk on the side.


It’s almost Christmas!! Nite!

I’ve never tried those grain drinks before. Do you add anything to the Pero, or just drink it plain?

Usually about 1/3 milk, 2/3 water and sometimes a little stevia in the raw

Hey Kath,
So yesterday I went to GH Temecula, and got to meet Alisha the owner she, and her staff are so nice! You can tell what a wonderful GH community you all have. I live in San Diego but my family and, i are visiting family in Palm Springs this weekend, so it was a real treat going in there and having lunch, and grabbing 3 loafs of bread, 1 cinnamon roll, a scone , and Fig butter :) I know I went a little crazy but that’s the closest one to me. This was my second time in that GH and everything was equally delish. Hopefully one day I will be able to visit you at your Great Harvest! I can see why you love it so much!
P.S. Your little Coon sure is a cutie pie! Truly just a beautiful little baby his daily glamour shots always put a smile on my face.

So fun! I got to visit their store and home at convention last year and they are so cool!


5 heidi December 22, 2012 at 12:07 pm

I remember that reading your older post when you guys were here for your GH convention! That’s how I knew her name! :)

Things are cooling down here too…woke up to snow! Hope it sticks around for Christmas morning! :) Enjoy your weekend! :)

I love that Boba carrier. How do you think it would work for an older (1+) baby?


8 KathEats December 22, 2012 at 10:20 am

Comparable to the other carrier brands. I think the weight limit is pretty high, and you can put it on your back

We still use ours occasionally with our almost 3 year old. We took it to the beach this year to carry her across the dunes so we could also have our hands free to carry stuff. We use it also when we’re doing a lot of walking but don’t want to take a stroller. Sometimes we use it at home if she’s really sleepy or cranky and I need to get other things done too, and I’ll even use it on the front for that so it’s more like me holding her. We’ve been really happy with ours. I hope to get lots of use out of it for our next baby too!

That almond butter looks like brown sugar! I’ve gotta find it :)


11 mary @ minutes per mile December 22, 2012 at 10:20 am

Ah, bummer that you didn’t like the soup. Once I made a massive pot of black bean soup and it turned out horribly — but like any soup, I had to deal with 10+ servings of it! I was so sick of it by the 7th meal that I ended up throwing the rest of it out.


12 Katie @ Real Food Katie's Way December 22, 2012 at 10:23 am

I don’t know where I’ve been but I didn’t realize the world was supposed to end until yesterday afternoon 😉

I love the little man’s toque!!

I emailed you out of desperation just now, about Kelsey’s pimento cheese dip recipe! I really hope you will be a peach and help me! Thanks!!


13 Averie @ Averie Cooks December 22, 2012 at 10:53 am

Mazen is adorable all bundled up and didn’t realize the weather was that cold & gnarly where you are…gosh, stay warm!

The beer tasting looks like a good way to start!


14 Sara @ fitcupcaker December 22, 2012 at 10:55 am

I love all your food!! Yum


15 kristen @ verbs and vignettes December 22, 2012 at 10:58 am

hahahahaha. first breakfast in the new world. gotta love it. at least we get to have the holiday season in the new world, too!


16 Michaela December 22, 2012 at 11:54 am

you know what really makes your posts these days? a pic of Mazen :) seriously!


17 Mom December 22, 2012 at 3:28 pm

Yep. No argument from this grandma!


18 Melissa December 22, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Really silly question – when you go to places like that, do you keep Maze in the carrier all the time? Is it comfortable to hold him that long?


19 KathEats December 22, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Sorry it has taken me all day to respond! We generally wear him the whole time – he’s usually either happy or sleeping! It does wear on the back after a while. Last night Matt and I argued over who got to wear him and Matt won because his back is stronger than mine : )


20 Eating 4 Balance December 22, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Too bad the soup wasn’t very good…. At least you always have some bakery bread to look forward to!


21 Allison k December 22, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Well..it’s currently 11 degrees in my part of Montana…at 10:30 am. Too cold to take the baby out!


22 Avery Hudson December 22, 2012 at 1:14 pm

The table in your yogurt bowl pictures is just gorgeous. I love how you made the pictures look so warm and inviting. The contrast between the bright blue of the bowl, the rustic wood, the deep ruby red of the cranberry sauce and the green mug really makes a beautiful picture! I think I’ll try to recreate that delicious breakfast! I really enjoy reading this blog everyday! You inspire me!

Microwaved apple…now that I much try!!! Happy Christmas in case I forget to say it :)


24 Lynn @ the actor's diet December 22, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Coldest I ever was in the Czech Republic a week ago where it was negative degrees in Celcius! I still haven’t warmed up, even in LA!


25 Errign December 22, 2012 at 6:06 pm

My brother lives in Big Sky, MT and I had to laugh at your comment – I go there every year in January specifically! :)


26 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More December 22, 2012 at 8:15 pm

I LOVE cranberry sauce on yogurt – YUM!


27 Ttrockwood December 22, 2012 at 11:35 pm

I am a huuugggeee fan of the microwaved apple thing- my magic mix is a chopped apple with a good two TB of applesauce to give it moisture, and a handful of oats all nuked together and drizzled with some maple syrup and chopped pecans or glob of nut butter.

I have rescued not great or leftover beany soup by using it to make veggie burgers- just drain most of the liquid, mash together with oats/breadcrumbs/crackers whatever, and an egg. Usually works best to refrigerate the “dough” before making patties or meatless balls.


28 Cherleen @ My Personal Finance Journey December 23, 2012 at 1:23 am

I love the title of this post. We are the champions indeed! We survived the “end of the world”! 😀 As a reward to myself, I am going to have microwaved apple and cranberry sauce on yogurt for lunch today. :)


29 Brittany @ Proteinandpumps December 23, 2012 at 1:31 am

Why is it that deconstructed anything is better than the constructed version? Breakfast looks amazing!

Try switching from coffee to coca tea.

Coca Tea (Mate de Coca) is known as the national drink of the Andean Countries, and is consumed by millions of South Americans as a healthful alternative to coffee. Mate de Coca consumption has many benefits: Energize The Body, Stimulate Mental Alertness, Aid Weight Loss, Gentle Diuretic, Relieve Stress, Calm Allergies, Help the Immune System.
