lava flow

I don’t know what happens some morning….but today my oatmeal was PERfection.  It’s always good.  But this was beyond good.  Sometimes I think it’s weird how much I talk about oatmeal…but come over and I’ll make you a bowl + then you’ll get it.

Peanut Butter + Coconut Butter melted lava flow

(1 of 8)


  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • vanilla splash

Topped with:

  • 1 tablespoon pnut butter + 1 teaspoon coconut butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon Heather’s jam
  • other 1/2 of the banana
  • about 2T Bob's Red Mill coconut granola

It filled me up…but was so good I considered making another bowl.  I think I really liked the banana on top.  I also liked melting the pnut butter over top with the coconut butter.  I usually use 1/2 water 1/2 almond milk but today I used all almond milk.

I was feeling a bit sluggish…a little cloudy in my head.  This smoothie really helped perk me up..for real!!  I went to the gym, awhile after lunch, and rode the stationary bike for 45min.  I had the new issue of Real Simple, which kept me busy and I read another 20 pages in the book Born To Run. 

Tomorrow morning I’m meeting with my friend Lauren and going to the farmer’s market.  Super excited about that!!  More tomorrow :)
