There were definitely oats under these toppings!  It’s a really small bowl so the toppings covered the steel cut oats :)  I’m loving the homemade granola.  The flavors are sooo delicious and not too sweet.

Heather picked me up today and we went to the farmer’s market.  I had to get more eggs!!  I’ll probably be buying some seeds in the next week or so.  Chris and I are going to try to build planter boxes and get our garden on.  We’re really excited to grow our own food and hope to not kill everything ;)

Cutest seed packets ever.

I munched on a fresh mango before the gym.

Along with this Peach Chobani.  There were 19g of sugar and it was WAY too sweet for me.  I wish they would just add the fruit and not the extra sugar.  I won’t buy this again.  Chris had a strawberry Chobani, which I thought was also way too sweet.

I did a little lifting today and 30min on the stationary bike doing high intensity intervals.  I rode at about 60-70% for 5min and then would go 100% for 60sec.  I really like incorporating these types of workouts into my routine.

When I came home I made a swampy green monster.  It was my FAVorite GM as of late and definitely one of the best I’ve ever made.  The texture was perfection.  Thick + creamy thanks to the avocado.  About 1/4 of an avocado in a GM is THEE best thing ever.  You must try it.

Swamp Green Monster

  • few icecubes
  • 3/4c frozen strawberries
  • ~4-5” piece of banana
  • 1 scoop chocolate Amazing Grass
  • 1/2t unsweet. cocoa powder
  • 2c spinach
  • 1/2T hemp seeds
  • 1/2T chia seeds
  • 1/3c coconut kefir
  • 1/2-3/4c almond milk
  • 1/4 avocado

Hemp seeds have a really nutty smell almost like peanuts.  This smoothie had the perfect blend of flavors.  A little strawberry a good amount of banana and a smooth cocoa flavor too.  Again, the avocado makes GM’s amazing in the texture department!!

Avery!!!  So good to see Chris, Alicia and baby Avery.  He has gotten so big since I last saw him.  Crazy how time flies in baby-land.  He is just over 1yr, walking and talking.  Last time I saw him he was just crawlin’ around everywhere.
