I’m back with lotsss of pics for ya so hang tight!
I found these new bowls as we were unpacking and I was actually estatic! I know you guys understand 🙂
Closeups of my 3 piece breakie
Even with the extreme heat wave, I can’t seem to stop making my creamy, steamy oats for breakfast!
Frozen strawberries cool them down though,
These handpicked strawberries still tasted soo delicious after being frozen. Seriously guys, go pick some if you can!!
as does chilled, tart yogurt,
A more appropriate heat wave bowl of oats
For cool, rainy days, regular plain jane oats are needed,
Oh yes, I started making my oats using Silk DHA plus soy milk and boy, does it make a silky, creamy bowl of oats or what?? Guys, I was completely amazed (my mom was too!). I’m thinking maybe that’s the reason for my oat cravings despite all this heat! If you haven’t tried making oats with Silk soy milk, do it please.
Oh yes, and top with Smuckers Natural PB.
Breakfast I packed to eat at work one day was a fruit filled tupperware (chopped organic pear, strawbs and bloobs!), cup of plain yogurt and a forgotten about Kashi Toasted Berry Crisp sample!
I have a little obsession with tupperware and I would honestly love to have a tupperware party. (Raising Helen anyone??) When I see a new shape or colour of tupperware, I feel like I have to buy it because you never know when you will need that particular size of container to put stuff in you know? Anyway, I have A LOT and my friend even knew to buy my tupperware as part of my 19th birthday present. And I’m not gonna lie, it was my favourite present 🙂
I also really love cute little packages and boxes like this Kashi sample and I literally have it sitting on desk in my room. I didn’t think it was that weird, but writing it out now, I’ll admit, I’m a little crazy.
Moving on though! The cereal smelled amazing and fruity and tasted good, like a light granola. It was very sweet though and looking at the ingredients and nutrition label, there is definitely a lot of added sugar. To me, cane sugar is still sugar and dried fruit is plenty sweet and delish on its own.
As you know, I love Kashi’s Go Lean Crunch! cereal (despite the fact that the crunch seriously kills my jaws and mouth after a while) but it too, contains lots of sugar (13 grams per 1 cup serving). Kashi Crisp! contains 12 grams per serving size of only 3/4 cup. They contain the same 9 grams of protein as well as the same 190 calories per serving. So overall, I choose the wayy more delicious and filling Crunch! for my sugar serving and a little more cereal!
But, Nature’s Path Blueberry Optimum is still number 1. Always.
Another reason I like Crunch! and Optimum more: it keeps me full! This breakfast did not hold me over well and I needed lunch just a couple hours later! I made a gigantic sandwich at work and it was AMAZING. I haven’t had deli meat with real cheddar in ages and so it was extra good.
This thing was huge, fresh and delicious and just what I needed to settle my growling tum. Sometimes, I’m pretty sure my stomach is a bottomless pit. And usually, I love it.
So simple and so good. And eaten outside while driving my beer cart! It was tough but I was hungry so I demolished it 🙂
Lunches at home have been snacky, build-your-own plates:
I love having the option of making a mini sandwich with all the fixings or eating them seperately so plates like this work for me! Another snack plate lunch:
Fact: I always finish my meals with something sweet. Be it in fruit form,
cookies form clif z bar-form, which is a perfectly sized dessert!
ice cream because hey, there’s a heat wave goin’ on!
It just has to be sweet.
Wow, another monster post, but what else is new?? Do you guys mind these super long posts? I wish I could do shorter, more regular posts but I just can’t seem to fit it all into my day. Which one are you – everyday-every meal blogger or random-when-you-can blogger? I think you know which one I fit under!
Oh yeah, I went downtown with my friend last week and got a haircut! I used to HATE getting haircuts and would cry every. single. time I got it cut. But now I love it! It’s nice to have all the straggly ends cut off and have silky, healthy, bouncy hair! My hair used to be really long and dry but the pb and extra fats I’ve been eating has really done amazing things for my hair!
I love having my bangs back! But I know they will get annoying soon, especially when they start growing out. Oh well, I love them now 🙂
Have you had bad experiences getting your hair cut? And do you get the same cut everytime?? I am guilty of getting the same cut (more or less) every single time I get it cut even though I always say I am going to do something different! I just can’t seem to part with my long(er) hair. One day!
Have a great day!! and I will really really try to post more regularly!
