Today was all about chai. The spice of life!
I came downstairs after getting ready and had my hand on the oatmeal when the Great Harvest bread caught my eye. Something about doughy bread hit a craving deep down inside! I also had a deep down craving to NOT wash any dishes for a change.
Game plan change!
I prepped up two mini slices of Great Harvest Whole Grain Goodness and topped them with 1/4 a mashed banana each, Nuttzo PF and coconut butter. I seriously could not live without these two products these days!!
I knew if I wanted to be full all morning I needed something to go with my toast. Since I had carbs and fats on my plate, I decided on something with protein.
Again, I went to open the fridge for a yogurt when the Vega sparked my mind. I considering making a lite green smoothie but didn’t want to clean the blender. At the Brendan Brazier event last week they had mixed the Vega Vanilla Chai just with water, so I decided that would be a good option for my no-wash breakfast.
1 scoop of Vega Vanilla Chai with 1/2 a cup of organic cow’s milk and half a cup of water. It was not all that different from a Carnation Instant Breakfast and tasted pretty good! I think the Vega powder is a little too sweet for plain mixing – I like it best in smoothies -but this did the trick for today.
Guess what!? I DIDN’T GET A COFFEE HEADACHE!!! So thrilled. Guess my step down to caf tea worked!
Today I blended Green + Chai tea from Golden Moon basket. Going into OpenSky this week!
Delish! Today I used a make-your-own teabag bag (see the white ghost in there?) but I really need a better infuser. It’s messier than my French press to make loose leaf tea and I’m not happy about that!
Since this was a new breakfast for me considered the nutrient value – I think it’s about 500 calories with a good amount of PRO + CHO + FAT so it should hold me over as well as any other breakfast I have. We’ll see about that!
Looks like I’m a finalist for the NC Sweet Potato Sweet Bytes Blogger Recipe Contest! Goooooo gnocchi!
And I also wrote a guest post about sweet potatoes that I missed: Sweet Orange 🙂
A few days left on the Auroae yoga mat coupon (Code = 5forYoga) and the Danskos 15% off at Clogs Central goes through the end of April (Code = kerf). (Going on day 3 of my Danskos and am still amazed!!)
Look what Matt’s been up to this AM:
Have a great day!
