Did ya know? 346 million bowls of oatmeal are consumed every year!
Backtracking to this AM….
I was so excited about today (and I have that killer body clock) that I woke up at 5:45 this morning with my mind racing. I figured I’d make my way down to the gym and use the time wisely. I found MizFit and Roni already on the ellipticals! The gym was really nice for a hotel. I spent about 40 minutes on the elliptical watching TV. It was great to sweat and I chugged water too.
I was cleansed inside and out this morning. First with my workout, and then with fabulous Aveda products in my fabulous bathroom! I sashayed around my hotel room in my robe looking at the city scape. So fun!
While I was getting ready I made some hot water for tea in the coffee pot. I found a really good Earl Gray tea bag too.
I didn’t think I could wait until 9:30 to eat so I snacked on some trail mix that I brought from home as well –
Then we arrived at the Pepsi-Co Headquarters for the day to begin.
And arrived to the Oatmealpalooza Bar!
- 1/2 packet Pumpkin Spice oatmeal (on the bottom – it’s good! Available only at Wal-Mart for a limited time)
- Rolled oats
- Steel cut oats
- Splash soy milk
- Golden raisins
- A few walnuts
- A few blueberries
- Organic PB!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks to the event organizers for making my day!
Plus coffee. I’m stuffed now!
We started the day with a talk by a food scientist who reminded us that steel cut, old fashioned, and instant oats all have identical nutritional stats. All are great for you!
