After nutrition class this morning I was successful at my walk + study session. I walked at the indoor track for about an hour while memorizing my last few flashcards for today’s midterm. I am able to focus more when walking and studying because there is less distraction than when I sit at a table and people walk. My leggins are a little tired, so I’m guessing it was a good workout too.
I ventured back up to my academic building’s lounge to dine and catch up on blogs around noon.
The lunch centerpiece was half an amazing Pumpkin Bagel from my Aunt Donna’s Hot Bagel Company in Oakridge, TN. If you’re ever in Tennessee, you must stop in and say hello! They make the best chewy bagels. And this pumpkin one did not disappoint! (Karen brought us a few back from her weekend trip there).
I topped the half with pumpkin butter (which was mostly absorbed overnight) and AB.
My friend and carpool buddy Kelsey raves about Nancy’s yogurt and brought me some to try this morning. I swapped out my Chobani to give it a taste test with lunch.
It was good, but I still like greek and TJ’s Euro more!
Here’s my overall yogurt ranking if I had to live off one kind for the rest of my life (all are plain except Chobani, which I feel is worth its own sugar, and Stonyfield FOTB for it’s Costco price)
- TJ’s Greek
- Chobani (first plain, then peach, then blueberry, then strawberry, then vanilla)
- TJ’s European
- Emmi Swiss
- Brown Cow
- Stonyfield Fruit on the Bottom
- Stonyfield plain
I also packed some leftover roasted veggies, which I ate cold –
And an orange, which I peeled on site –
I write with the very exciting news that I have been invited to join The Quaker Oatmeal Living Proof Weekend, an all expenses paid trip to Quaker’s National Headquarters in Chicago with 15 other health and food bloggers (including Jenna!!) November 7-9.
Weekend highlights include: interviews with the Quaker staff and an R.D., roundtable discussions, dinner with the other bloggers and an Oatmealpalooza Breakfast Bar!! I’ll be asking for your ideas and questions about all-things-Quaker oats before the trip. You can only imagine how excited I am considering my love for oatmeal.
In celebration of the upcoming weekend, Quaker has offered to giveaway a goodie pack to 3 KERF readers. The products include Old Fashioned Quaker Oats (the best!), Quaker Instant Oatmeal, Quaker Oatmeal To Go and Quaker Oatmeal Squares (and old favorite of mine I haven’t had in years).
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this post by my dinner post tonight and I’ll draw 3 comment numbers from a hat this evening to announce sometime tomorrow.
Off to spit out Foodservice information!
