Can you guess what I had for breakfast?
Last night is your hint…
Root Stoup Oats!
As I was eating my stoup last night I thought This would make a good breakfast. Had there been garlic or onion involved, I never would have combined them, but it was mild enough and sweet to the taste that I thought it would be good in oats.
I was only half right. It was too "dinnery" for breakfast. It didn’t taste bad, but it was a bit too savory for me first thing in the AM. It was no pumpkin!
- 1/3 cup oats, water, 1/2 banana,1 tbsp chia seeds, pinch salt
- 1/3 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese + 1/3 cup stoup, stirred in at end
- Cinnamon + vanilla
- Barney Butter blobs
- Drizzle maple syrup for sweetness
Sure was filling though!
I opened my last Marley Coffee packet today: Jammin Java: Bold Full City Roast.
I store my freshly ground coffee batches in tupperwares in the freezer door with the label stuck on top:
Half Jammin’, half decaf, splash of half and half
Real Food For You?
I am all caught up on my Real Food Consultations que, so if you were holding off, now’s your chance 🙂
Remember the Mary Kay products I received to sample? Here’s an update:
The Timewise has been fun to use. My favorite part is the smell of the day solution serum – it’s like buttercream icing! I also have been pleasantly pleased with the absorbance time. My other facial lotion (Neutrogena) used to take a long time to soak in and with the Timewise my face is ready for make up in less than 5 minutes. On the
wrinkle fine line front, I haven’t really noticed any changes. I’ll keep checking though!
LOVING the body washes. I am a bar soap girl and have really enjoyed the scents of these. I’m not quite sure how to use the scrubs – no part of my body is really that rough? But I still use it maybe once a week simply for the smell 🙂
The tinted moisturizers are fun. Love the colors, but they have been drying my lips out a bit after a while so I’ve been putting gloss on top. I’d give them a B+.
I’ve worn the eye shadow in this guy a few times and liked it, but not as much as my Cover Girl sparkly one. The Mary Kay shadow is quite…..potent? The bronzer is a bit hard to apply with that tiny brush so I’ve been using my bigger make-up brush, and like it when I use that.
On to another fun sample – something I’ve wanted for YEARS –
A sonic toothbrush!!!
Waterpik asked me to try their Sensonic Professional Toothbrush out and I was more than excited. My sister has had a sonic toothbrush for years and swears by them. My dentist has told me I need one too but I’ve been too lazy to save up $80+ for a toothbrush when I can get one for $1.99 that should do the trick of plaque removal! I had a sonic one on my birthday/Christmas list, but now I can take it back off 🙂 I brush + floss frequently, but I am not that great of a brusher in terms of quality. Hopefully this will do it for me!
So here’s me testing it out… shicha shicha (*brushing sounds*)
It vibrates! There are two speeds. I put it on the lower one because the higher one is ca-razy fast + wild! I was surprised that it does not have any circular features that I’ve seen on the other sonic toothbrushes, however, my teeth felt INCREDIBLY clean afterwards. Just like I’d been to the dentist.
Loved that it stutters every 30 seconds to remind you to move to another quadrant and ends after 2 minutes. I definitely do not currently brush long enough or spend enough time in each quadrant, so this is really going to improve my brushing.
There is also this "interdental" attachment, that I think is used to stimulate the gums. I LOVE having my gums massaged (especially when the dental hygienist pokes them with the prodder), I think because it stimulates blood flow or something, so this felt really good on my gums and between my teeth. Not sure I will use it daily, but at least when I want a good time 😉
- Replacement heads are $5 each, but assuming this pays off in good dental health, that’s not too bad.
- It’s a $79 investment (and Amazon and Costco have them) but from what I’ve heard that’s on the lower end of the higher quality sonic brushes
- Hard for traveling. I might just bring my old fashioned when I travel. But that’s not really a reflection of the company, just sonics in general.
No comment on how long the batteries hold without a charge because I’ve only used it for a few days.
So that’s that!
I considered running first thing today but I know I always have more energy around 11AM so since I am lucky to have the flexibility, I put it off till later. My day is wide open, but I do have a lot to do in anticipation of a really busy next week, so it won’t be a free day by far. Tomorrow will be though! I’ve got a date with Matt to watch The Office at lunchtime!
