Practically bounded out of bed this morning with the temptation of two wonderful things: Gossip Girl and oatmeal!
Knocked out breakfast with a fab combo of munch + crunch texture:
- 1/3 cup oats, soy milk, water, pinch salt
- Half banana
- Splash vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 2 tbsp cooked wheatberries
- 1/4 cup Daisy Cottage Cheese
- Sprinkle Mix My Granola
- Spoonful MaraNatha AB
Plus some of Maggie‘s green tea. I’m saving up my coffee fix for a morning study date with Victoria!
But the best part was the awesome episode of Gossip Girl topping!
Alison of Mama’s Weeds interviewed me for the Health Blog Helper site! Thanks Alison!

I watched Gossip Girl for the first time last night! I know, I;m so behind on the times.
Ohhh good ol’ metab…. I think I’m in the same boat as you. I studied for that class all yesterday! I have a test on proteins next Tuesday… what are you all talking about in class at the moment?
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says

Barbara(Blood, Sweat and Heels) says
I watched GG last night. Is it me or does Jenny look ultra trashy this season? Still..it’s my fav guilty pleasure show:)
Oatmeal looks great! Good luck on the book grazing.

GG in the am is a real treat!
Good luck studying!
Oatmeal + Gossip Girls sounds like the perfect way to start the day!! Although, I could do without Dan’s mega sideburns this season 😛
I have never seen Gossip Girl before, but you are certainly motivating me to check it out! I wonder if I can get the dvd’s from the library…
I love cottage cheese in oatmeal. It adds tons of protein and nice creamy texture.
Have a great day
You are making me more and more excited about getting Gossip girl in the mail, woot woot!
Oh and I find it funny that you guys are right along with my class all of the time, haha 🙂 We are on Metabolism this week too!

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope says
What a perfect way to start out your morning. I haven’t had a chance to watch this week’s episode yet, but I’m hoping to tonight! I have to admit that I’m not liking the new addition of Hilary Duff to the cast, but we’ll see how she does!
Ahh, MaraNatha AB is my favorite, I seriously need to re-stock. Great article on Health Blog Helper, thanks for your tips!

ive never seen a single episode of GG but after reading this post i feel like i should!!
ahhh i love gossip girl! it’s so hard having to wait a week for each episode though!
Hehe, today you had tea with breakfast and I actually had coffee! I almost always have tea but decided to switch it up today 🙂
We’re in the middle of lipids 🙂
Yes, I preferred her so much more in Season 1!!
Poor Nate. I’d be happy to cheer him up 😉
Haha – I think they were still in the previews before it had started 🙂
Cynthia (It All Changes) says
I actually woke up early to eat some more Oatmeal Brulee with raw almond butter some LOST 🙂
What an amazing morning. You’ve got me hooked on GG lady. 😉 Decided to try it after hearing you rave about it… and now I can’t quit watching!
