We were up and freezing this morning to a 62* house. Heat? I’d love to wait until November! Perhaps I should break out the space heater. Despite the cold, we dressed warmly and set out on a 4ish mile run. It was actually a pretty good run. I wore just the right clothes (just typed close!) to not be cold but not be too sweaty inside either: long sleeves, thin fleece, spandex pants.
They are a mix of oats, flax seeds, bulgur, rye, grits, corn meal, millet meal and seeds. Yum! Really they were mostly just oats with flax, but the consistency and flavor were quite different. The nutritionals are almost the same as regular oats.
They seemed to cook quicker than our normal oats and were definitely thicker – which I liked for a change!
My bowl included:
- 1/3 cup flax oat porridge, 1/3 cup milk, 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 large banana
- Salt, vanilla
- 1 tbsp wheatberries
- Trail mix parts (choco chips, raspberries, a few peanuts)
- Pumpkin butter for sweetness
- AB on a spoon
Plus a serving of chandelier coffee with half and half splashed in –
I love our new placemats! Why did it take me so long to get some in my favorite color green?
Thanks to Charlie at Back to the Fridge, I now have a cool Favicon for KathEats.com in my site’s colors!! You know the little icon that shows up on the tab and when you bookmark it? If you are still seeing the navy blue squares, try clearing your computer’s cache and refreshing the page. Thanks Charlie!!!
I’m off to take this exam, then home for a relaxing day of working on long-term final projects.
And I hear one of my best friends from college (and the husband’s frat brother and my former boyfriend!) SNAKE might be in the area. I hope we get to see him!
