Pumpkin Oats and Tea!


I feel like crap… my Dad shared his cold with me!  Nice parting gift Dad!!

Since my throat is on fire, and I am cold… a smoothie wouldn’t do!

Oatmeal is my other soft favourite for breakfast, and since the leaves are turning, and and I feel like it is Fall (I know, I know…it isn’t the 23rd yet) I went ahead and had me some PUMPKIN!!

Pumpkin oats pre-water and chia seeds

In the Oats I put some canned pumpkin puree, a scoop of chia seeds, and some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.  I also added 6 drops of vanilla stevia.  I made about 3 servings of oats that I can heat up at a later time :)

I topped the oats with some Nature’s Path Pumpkin Granola, and a teaspoon of Marantha Almond butter. 

On the side I had some Tim Hortons’s Pumpkin Spice tea… 


Goal post will be posted later today!



Coffee and Oats…

Aquafit last night was cancelled due to weather :(  Which means I better get my butt in gear at home, and bring a DVD with me when we go to the wedding as I am feeling BLAH! After the cancelled aquafit disappointment and procrastinating about packing, I stayed up WAY too late!  I needed COFFEE this morning!!

Donut Shop k-cup

Protein Oats were my eats of choice this morning… I honestly didn’t know what to have.  I’m not that hungry, and I didn’t want to wake up my family with the hum of the vitamix…

All the mix-ins

In the bowl:

  • Quaker 100% Whole Grain Oats packet
  • 1 scoop Chocolate Protein powder
  • 1 t Chia Seeds
  • Boiled Water
I put it all in a bowl, and microwaved it for an additional 30 seconds so it had the wonderful souffle like texture.  Topped it with some Coco-Loco, and a tiny bit of almond butter and dove right in…. I guess I was hungrier than I thought?
I’m off to the hairdresser today… hopefully for just a trim, and colour.  I had a not so great experience there this spring when my Hairdresser was off work for a couple of months, and I used her replacement.  I have been putting off an appointment as long as I can, as leopard print dye job is not what I want to be sporting at my cousin’s wedding next week… will keep you updated 😉

Warm and Yummy!

Overnight Oats in a Jar (OOIAJ)

For once I planned ahead, and finally made overnight oats in a jar again.  I have been thinking of them a lot lately, however, it is usually when it is too late to make them for the meal I want! … like 9am when I am wanting something to eat NOW!

Overnight Oats in a jar mixSo last night I got out a mason jar, as I didn’t have any nut butter jars empty, no worries, as I faked it!  Marantha Dark Chocolate Almond Butter… sigh… true love!

Into the Jar went:

  • 1/3 cup Large Oat Flakes
  • 2/3 Almond Milk
  • 1 scoop Chia Seeds
  • Dark Chocolate Almond Butter

Ready for the Fridge...

I spent the night dreaming about all the wonderful flavours of peanut butter from Peanut Butter and Co.  I had bid on a sampler The Big Six at #TGFA… only to be outbid at the last minute :(  I then frantically spent the evening trying to find things to bid on that were still going AND shipping to Canada.  I did end up winning an auction in the end.  It was an amazing fundraiser, and Janetha G deserves a round of applause!!  In the end with her guidance the online community raised $26,432, through auctions and monetary donations.

…and I woke up to this! :)

YUM!  I love Overnight Oats in a Jar!  After adding a little Peanut Butter Granola, and a diced apricot, I dived right in!

Cool Morning Deliciousness!
