After 30 years of standing at the sidelines of my own life, I am ready to "Pick Me!" first. Follow me on my journey of finding health and happiness in my every day...

Need to Catch Up?

We had a great long weekend at Buffalo Lake this year,
From eating s’mores
To building Sandcastles…
To Green Protein Smoothies on the Beach…
To trying a Tim Tam Slam!! (read about it on Susan’s Blog, and had to try it when we found some in a small grocery nearby!)
Trying to eat healthier while away… (when we weren’t trying Tim Tam’s :P)
Kayaking on Buffalo Lake…
(pics to follow, wrong camera at home)
It was a great weekend! For the most part we ate healthy, and kayaked many miles around the lake checking out beaver dams, and cabins we wished we owned!
Well I better go, so I can get back out there!
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!
Into the Jar went:
- 1/3 cup Large Oat Flakes
- 2/3 Almond Milk
- 1 scoop Chia Seeds
- Dark Chocolate Almond Butter
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!
