Mornin’. I woke up at 8 this morning with a slight headache and lots of stiffness. I of course turned to my remedies: yoga + oatmeal. I did 45 minutes Yoga For Runners, which I like a lot. My stiffness is gone, headache pending.
By the time I was finished with yoga it was 9:00. Since I’ve got lunch and a movie with my girlfriends today, I knew time would be tight. I asked the husband if he’d rather make breakfast or go for a short run. He chose breakfast. The run can wait 🙂 I’m planning to bike to the movie and walk to the grocery store, so I might just skip a run to avoid taking a second shower.
The topping spotlight today was on this Cocoa Pistachio ProBar. I like these more and more with each new flavor I tried. I love how they are like a bunch of seeds compressed together – they crumble easily and have lots of fun little pieces to chew.
- 1/3 cup oats, vanilla soy milk, water, 1/2 small banana, 2 tbsp wheatberries, pinch salt, splash vanilla, 1.5-ish tbsp raisins
- ~1/4 ProBar
- 1/2 tbsp flax
- A few butterscotch chips
- Spoonful EF PB
We shared a French press, so I had about 3/4 a cup of cafe –
Off to shower, walk to HT, bike to movie and Dean & Deluca. Have a super Sunday 😎
What kind of butterscotch chips do you use? I checked some out at my grocery store and they all had trans fat (partially hydrogenated oil) in them…
Looks like another busy day Kath! Enjoy your Sunday! What movie are you going to?
Hope your headache goes away soon!!

Hi KATH ! What movie are you seeing today? Whatever it is, enjoy it and have a leisurely day! Are probars available @ WF?
you breakfast setup is so pretty and sunny. enjoy the rest of your day 🙂
It looks like a flower is growing out of your oatmeal!
Skip the run… seriously, you get enough cardio!
That ProBar flavor sounds great. I love pistachios and they are in far too few things!
Enjoy your movie!

Happy Sunday 🙂 Hope you get rid of that pesky headache.
Your oatmeal bowls are always a source of inspiration for me! I never thought to stick a flower in the middle though… should try it next time 😉
Have a great Sunday!

Interesting ProBar flavor… I’ve tried a few but not that one. I haven’t been too crazy about them, but I can see how they’d be good in small doses as a topper.
Kath, why do you add salt to your oatmeal? Can anyone tell me the effect of salt, and if we can skip it.
Hope you feel better, and I love your bowl and place-mat.
Oh, I’m so jealous of Dean &Deluca! I’ve never been.
Beadie @ What I Ate Yesterday says
I hope you are having a glorious Sunday!
Your probar sounds yummy!! I’m gonna have to check those out.
I love the idea of butterscotch chips on oatmeal- they’re so flavorful that I bet a couple morsels really goes a long way!
Speaking of oatmeal..I gave you an oatmeal shout-out in my post today- check it out! 🙂
Enjoy your day and the movie! Love the oats!

Yum-o! Hope you enjoyed your girl’s day!
Unfortunately my butterscotch chips have partially hydrogenated.. in them too. I didn’t realize this until I had opened them! I’ll finish the bag, but not sure I’ll buy them again.
You can definitely skip the salt. It’s more to bring out the flavor, as salt is known as a flavor enhancer. I don’t really taste it, but I notice my oats are blander when it’s missing.
