Somebody stole the last banana!
= a Pumpkin Oats Day!
With my current favorite oatmeal ingredient: mission fig! I just love the little crackly seeds in them.
- 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup 1% milk, 1/3 cup+ water, pinch salt
- 1/2 cup pumpkin, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tbsp+ wheatberries, all stirred in at end
- 1 tbsp pumpkin butter
- 1 tbsp flax
- 1/3 Quaker Simple Harvest Choco Bar
- Happy Serving of Barney Butter
It was interesting to note how FAST the oats cooked without a banana! Guess the sugar, starch, fiber really slows down the cooking process.
I am buzzzzzing after this cup of joe
This bowl was SUPER filling!
This morning I implemented a new AM plan. I told myself I’d wake up early but I didn’t have to get up. I took my laptop in bed with me and knocked out one of my smaller assignments from bed. Worked perfectly because my attention span was ready for a change after that hour.
I hopped out of bed and did yoga – right there in my room. The other night I did it in the serene guest room. I’m loving switching up the location! And it’s cozier to do it near my bed than down in the hard-core spacious living room. I did 20 minutes of Detox yoga this AM. My shoulders are really feelin’ the stress of these past 2 (and upcoming 4) weeks and I felt great to stretch ‘em out with some twists. I might do more yoga tonight – I need the stretch.
Then came breakfast.
Now comes an online Psych test.
From Laptop To Kitchen
