When I was in college there was a semester my junior year when I didn’t have class until 11:30am. As a result, I slept in – getting 9-10 hours of sleep each night.
Ironically, I could not keep my eyes open come mid-afternoon and I felt even more tired than I used to! Finally I decided I was wasting too much time sleeping and set an alarm clock for 8.5 hours max. And all of a sudden I felt like my old self again. I was perky and energized all afternoon.
I’m telling you this because I think there is most definitely such a thing as too much sleep! It’s hard to realize because you feel tired, but for me, getting more than 8.5 hours is not ideal! And the past few nights I think I have gotten too much. I have felt so tired in the afternoons, yet I’ve slept plenty of hours. Time to set an alarm again!
I also had a raging headache last night – I think those few days of coffee got me BACK on caffeine!
Eggy chia seed OIAJ.
I think this jar has been heated in water way too many times!
The Coconut Butter Mix
- 1/3 cup oats, milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 banana
- Pinch salt
- Splash vanilla
- 1/2 egg (half because I made a double pot with Matt), whisked in at end of cooking
- Toppings: Ambrosial orange granola (CHEW!), Grandma Candy’s Black Cap Jam, coconut butter residue, Sunflower butter ( <—couldn’t resist! I haven’t had a good drippy nut butter in days)
Chai tea + peppermint tea. Mixing is my new thing!
Have a great day!
