Hold on kiddos…first things first! The Bachelorette is tonight…woowoo! I am hoping for some major drama tonight, because quite frankly, my life is boring. I am really a 70-year-old lady who likes drinking tea, eating prunes and going to bed by 10pm in the body of a 24-year old. Therefore, I must live vicariously through Jillian and her men.
The lovely bowl included:
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 (4-oz.) container Stonyfield Yo Baby peach yogurt
1/2 cup vanilla almond milk
1 cup blueberries
1/4 cup Zoe’s Honey Almond granola
scoop TJ’s raw AB
After seeing these oats almost everywhere in the blogosphere, I am soooo glad I finally gave them a whirl. They were the perfect bowl of oats for summer – cool, refreshing and seriously delicious (especially with all those toppings!). Next time, the only thing I would change is to add 1/4 cup milk (instead of 1/2) and buy grown-up girl yogurt (I didn’t know the Yo Baby was whole milk yogurt. However, I did know that I had an awesome coupon).
Who am I kidding? It was more like my 1,423,096th PB+B sammie.
Aren’t these juicy gems gorgeous? I picked these lovelies up as soon as I saw them – everyone needs a little extra color in their lives. Especially in tomato form.
After lunch, I took a lovely 1/2 hour walk taking a new route for the FIRST time. It was absolutely marvelous out today – 70’s, sunny and extremely pleasant. Glo-ho-ho-horious (to the tune of Notorious, of course)!
That one’s not technically a first yet; I haven’t had my second handful. However, I stand by my word because I am sure that 2nd handful will come during an ABC commercial break this evening.
Ummm…hello? Why haven’t I seen this on more blogs? It is absolutely, ridiculously chocolatey deliciousness at it’s finest healthiest. My dear co-worked Lori brought it for me today, because she was eating it last week and this gal was intrigued. Shout-out to Lori T. for being such a thoughtful, fun cubicle friend (and for reading my blog) :)! Topped with some raisins, it was good. I am thinking it might even be better frozen…chocolate froyo, anyone?
I won’t lie to you – this might be one of my best junk salad concoctions yet, including:
2 cups spinach
1/4 cup carrots
1/4 cup alfalfa sprouts
1/8 steamed kabocha squash
1/2 cup chickpeas (roasted in EVOO, honey + cinnamon)
drizzle of EVOO + honey
sprinkle of cinnamon
I knew I had to finish off dinner with a bit of this, and oh my – NEW FAVORITE COMBO ALERT! And that is saying a lot from a girl who loves her combos. You bet your buns kabocha + AB will be making an appearance tomorrow morning for breakfast. Mark my words.
Agenda for this evening…
The Bachelorette + Yoga for Runners from Polly (during commercials) + snack (most likely, another handful of AB+PB+J trail mix and some grapes) + job apps + early bedtime. I’m channeling Matt and getting out the door early in the AM for a 3-mile run!
Happy Monday night to y’all, especially to all you Bachelorette watchers ;).
