I started today with 45 minutes of Power Vinyasa #1. I liked it just OK compared to some of the others. It was intermediate and some of the poses were very tricky. I prefer to be challenged in strength and flow these days, but I’m not into the impossible balancing poses like flying eagle! Perhaps someday, but definitely not yet. I still enjoyed it though.
I followed yoga with this pile of pumpkin oats fit for a king! I was licking my lips taking these photos
- 1/3 cup oats, 1% milk, water, a whole medium banana, pinch salt, splash vanilla
- 1/3 cup pumpkin, stirred in at end
- 2 tbsp wheatberries
- 1 tbsp ground flax
- 1/4 Apple Ginger Spice Country Square
- ~7 butterscotch chips
- DOUBLE spoonfuls of PB (I ran out way too early!)
A filled-to-the-brim cuppa French press
This should keep me full early afternoon! I am planning to go running outside when I feel my stomach is empty enough not to feel sloshy.

Beadie @ What I Ate Yesterday says
Gorgeous oats!!! Pumpkin seems to be popular in blogland today!!
Be sure to check out my blog today for this week’s BSI ingredient!
Looks great Kath. I just tried pumpkin oats for the first time and they came out dry. Is the key stirring them in at the end? I’ll try it next time 🙂
Wow that Country Bob’s is everywhere. Brent and I just got a bottle, but I really don’t know what to do with it.
Kath: Do you think plain old syrup would just as well as molasses in the coconut tofu recipe?
Tasty oats! The orange candle is cute!

So much pumpkin lovin! Have a good run Kath.
i just saw this article on nutritiondata.com linking french press coffee with increased cholesterol levels.
i thought it might interest you — but i wouldn’t be overly concerned about it.
love the oats! I bought butterscotch chips last weekend and forgot to use them this morning! harumph 🙂 tomorrow, I guess.
coffee looks so great today!
congrats to kelly!
have a great run!
Sarah (lovINmytummy) says

Mmmm, that pile of orange oats are making me drool!
I never win anything! Argh, oh well, I’m going to keep trying. Those oats look scrumptious!
seelee live (for the love of peanut butter) says
oatmeal looks delicious as always! this bowl really does look like heaven.
I hope you have a relaxing day-despite the workload!!
Thanks for all the links! I wish I had some of your oats right now!
Christin S says
Wow your oats look especially delicious today!! Good luck on those tougher yoga poses…stick with it, once you are able to get them you get such a great sense of accomplishment! When I finally got the crow pose (The one where you put your knees on your arms and balance on your hands) I was ecstatic!
Butterscotch chips? Seriously drooling here. I just started using dark chocolate chips. Decadent goodness that makes my pms very happy.
wish you could have been there!
i think i will have to go buy some bananas and oats tonight and go back to eating oatmeal every morning. your breakfast posts just tease me too much!
Thanks for all those links to the contests!
That bowl of oats is definitely fit for a king!
Hey Kath I have a giveaway this week too!!!!
yay for a second spoonful of PB 🙂
French Press coffee is the best 🙂 I never make it any other way now.
those oats look completely divine!
i hear you on the flying eagle pose…it completely breaks my concentration every time because i have such a hard time balancing myself
Lovely oats! Random question…….what kind of coffee do you use and what kind of creamer?? It always looks so delish!
I’m interested in downloading some of the videos from yogadownload as I am a yoga instructor and always looking for new ideas and to learn from other instructors – I figured I need to take advantage of the 50% off sale. Just wondering if when you download the videos if they go right onto your computer or if they are just loaded into your account?
Nice to see you are hooked on yoga – its a wonderful addiction. 🙂
oooh I’m loving the Asian-inspired bowl. I feel like my parents TOTALLY have the same one back at home in Hong Kong!! It’s probably just me, but I’m so intruiged by the “fusion” of Western food in an Asian bowl. It’s sorta….really cool.
Sounds like you might have overcooked them? I’d add more liquid if they are dry. Did you use 2:1 liquid to oats?
Definitely. I just used regular Grade A maple.
Interesting! But it doesn’t affect women. Hmm.
Missy (Missy Maintains) says
The oats look soo good! Thanks for the contest info!
All different kinds of coffee, but currently Dilworth Coffeehouse’s Butterscotch Toffee. I always just put milk in and we usually have 1% for the touch of fat.
You actually download the file as an MP3 onto your computer so it’s yours for life.
I love me some oatmeal with pumpkin!!!
Yours looks so good!!!
I’m having a giveaway on my blog today until Wed. at 9 p.m. CST. Check it out.
