June 18, 2012

Must come down.

We’re dropping rain from the sky this morning. But in exchange for a rain-free wedding weekend, I’ll get my toes wet today.

I went from insomnia to accidental oversleeping today. All I had time for was a bowl of cereal and lots of fresh berries. Fortunately I might have chosen this breakfast anyways it was so good!

Honey Bunches and Morning Ohs (the last of each) with blueberries and blackberries, milk and sunbutter.

Happy Monday! I’m so confused what week it is I’ve been traveling so much. But I’m home for a month now!

Your breakfast looks great! I’ve been wanting fresh berries lately. I must pick them up from the grocery store today :)

I haven’t had cereal in so long! Sometimes it just hits the spot!

You passed your insomnia to me! Thanks for the reminder that I got that bowl on clearance a year ago and still haven’t used it yet.

I love combining different cereals together, especially when they are almost gone!

I had blackberries this morning too. They are so massive and juicy in ATL right now. I think this is one of the best fruit seasons we’ve had in a while!

Logistics question out of curiosity: when you put a nut butter with a bowl of cereal or yogurt, do you mix it in to the milk/yogurt? Does it taste good like that? Random question, I know :)

15 KathEats June 18, 2012 at 6:51 pm

Well first I lick some off, then I pile on some berries and get some more in another bite….it’s probably all gone in the first 10 bites :) Then I just eat the cereal normally!

I’d take rain for a rain-free wedding weekend any time. Heck, around here- we’d just take rain!!!! ….Those berries would make my baby kick up a storm- the little one loves fruit!!!!

19 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat June 18, 2012 at 8:57 am

Yum, I’m loving blackberries right now too! I just had a whole bunch in a smoothie this morning… and I don’t even know how many were consumed in the smoothie making process straight out of the container! Enjoy being back at home. I love traveling but it’s always nice to come back to your own bed!

I’ve started putting protein powder or peanut flour in my cereal with fruit on top…it is such a great treat! Sorry you’re running behind today. Hopefully you are at least getting some much needed rest!

Beautiful berries! I love berries with Cheerios and milk–such a perfect combination!

Mmm those berries look delish! I just picked up a carton of bloobs and blackberries for a dollar each from the Minneapolis Farmer’s Market! #whatadeal Happy Monday!

Because of you I have recentlyy purchased almond butter and sunflower butter. I am in love. So, so much better than regular peanut butter.

25 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More June 18, 2012 at 10:27 am

YUM! All those berries look so delicious! And thanks for reminding me I need to get some more sun butter… ;)

It really always is so confusing when you get back from traveling a lot to figure out what day is what and to get back on a regular schedule. Glad you got a couple extra zzz’s in – you probably needed them!

Wow, those berries look beautiful. There’s nothing better than good berries, and they are so hard to find these days!

Hi, Kath!

I’m a relatively new follower, but you (and my blood test results) have inspired me to buy some chia seeds. I tried them for the first time this morning – I put some in my cereal. The texture that was created, however…not so good. Any suggestions? I’d like to get them into my diet, but would definitely prefer if they didn’t get all slimy on the outside by the time they reach my mouth. I was thinking maybe yogurt…

Reply

29 KathEats June 18, 2012 at 11:10 am

Unfortunately that’s the nature of chia seeds – and the very reason why I love them!! I love the slime. If you put them in a smoothie they would be ground up better and you probably wouldn’t notice the slime

Reply

30 Maria@Sinfully Nutritious June 19, 2012 at 5:31 am

If you can get over the chia texture, I love the slime too, try hempseeds.

Reply

31 Erin June 20, 2012 at 1:44 am

I notice the texture in smoothies and cereal (although I like it), but I do NOT notice it at all when I put chia seeds into oatmeal. Try that way.

I’m visiting Charlottesville from CA and I’m currently wearing a dress in this rain. Feeling a bit silly because it’s pouring :) Love this city though!

Very antioxidant friendly breakfast! It looks very good. I am glad the wedding was rain free! I am one to have the attitude of “bring on the rain” during the week–as long as it means a beautiful weekend :)

Jealous of your berry-ful breakfast! Lots of antioxidants this AM!

I love blue and blackberries. Perfect summer breakfast!

Hi Kath!

I have been dying to try this breakfast but struggle with proportions and feeling like I have gotten enough of my needed nutrients.

When your make your unreliable looking cereal breakfasts, how much of each ingredient do you use?

I know weird question but been dying to know!

Reply

39 KathEats June 18, 2012 at 12:22 pm

I don’t actually measure anything…and my needs right now are probably different than yours! I’d go with 1 to 1.5 cups of a whole grain cereal with a real food ingredient list and then 1 cup of milk, 1/2-1 cup fruit and a little fat in the form of nut butter, nuts, seeds, etc.

40 Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 18, 2012 at 12:20 pm

At first I thought you just had a bowl of berries in milk there! I’ve been so into cereal lately. For the longest time, my breakfast was usually greek yogurt with cereal or oats mixed in, but for the past couple of months, I’ve only wanted cereal in milk (with sliced bananas, of course!) every morning. So strange…I’m going through cereal like a machine!

YUM YUM. Berries on top of cereal is my breakfast of choice! Unless it’s freezing out and then it’s oatmeal!

Mmmmm mouthwatering berries. LOOKS so good!

Looking at your bowl from the top, it looks so big. Then the side view it looks small. I need a small bowl for cereal. I use a Pho sized bowl. I measure the cereal and milk, but think that I need a smaller bowl to feel like I am eating alot.

I’ve been consuming large amounts of fresh fruit lately as well, I’ve been so busy it’s so easy to have bunches laying around the snack on!

Love nut butter on cereal! I always seem to have trouble making sure that it doesn’t sink to the bottom though :(
