No, I wasn’t drinking a cocktail with breakfast
But our MILK is BAD! Not in the sour clumpy way, but in a really, really bitter chemically way. I must have drank 1/4 a cup of it before realizing that the taste wasn’t my imagination. BLARG! My tongue has not recovered. The date on the carton says 10/16/10 and we did buy it from a really small store that probably has a low turnover. Perhaps we just bought it on the old side? I’m not too quick to blame the grass-fed brand.
Ironically, today’s breakfast was all about making my PERFECT bowl of oatmeal!
If I had to list my very favorite components in addition to a whipped banana chia base, they would be:
- Cottage cheese
- Sticky peanut butter
- Pumpkin butter (or a jam)
For the first time in ages, I have them all on hand!
The Superb Mix
- 1/4 cup homemade scottish oats
- 2 tbsp rolled oats
- 1/4 cup milk (yes, it was added, but the bitter taste was hidden enough to be OK)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 banana
- Pinch salt
- Splash vanilla
- Sprinkle cinnamon
- 1/4 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end
- 1/4 cup cottage cheese, stirred in at end
- The above mentioned toppings!
We used a drop of heavy cream in our coffees because the milk is now off limits. It was good!
Today is an active rest day. Meaning I’m not doing any kind of formal workout – just probably some biking for transportation or a walk for the scenery. Probably yoga too! I was going to go to an Ashtanga class, but I think I’ll just do some stretching here instead to save time.
We’re going to see my sister’s boyfriend’s sister’s soccer game too!
