gimme the juice!

Today I woke up on the wrong side of the bed.  I felt like I had a hangover, but there was no alcohol consumed the night before.  I’ve been eating well + drinking enough water, but just stretching myself a little thin.  Pretty common around here, but never a good thing!  I’m trying to take it easier today and even got in a much needed nap.

I did something different for breakfast today.

I made oatmeal!  It’s been awhile.

This bowl was super tasty, but I’ve realized I’m not a big fan of chia seeds cooked into oats.  It’s a little too gummy for me!

In the bowl:

  • 1/3c rounded oats
  • 1 1/4c almond milk + water
  • 1 small banana
  • 1T chia seeds
  • 1t cinnamon
  • 1t vanilla
  • a lot of frozen blueberries

Piled on top:

  • chocolate chip cookie dough almond butter
  • almonds
  • Love Grown Foods simply oats granola
  • toasted coconut

Here is a sneak peak of the new wood color!!  Ignore the yellow glow coming from the back of the photo.  There is a big yellow compressor in the closet, casting a lovely glow. ;) 

I love how every single wood strip looks different!!  The color is nice + light, which will also help hide scratches.  SO EXCITED!

After my nap, I realized I needed a pick me up.  I didn’t want to slurp down coffee, because I felt like that might make me feel worse.  So, it was time to bust out the juicer.  I haven’t been juicing or smoothie-ing lately at all, and I really need to get back into it.

This was not the tastiest of juices, by any means.

But it was exactly what I needed.  I’m actually feeling much more alert and not as foggy in the head!

I have literally had to stop this post 4 times because of ordering related phone calls.  Eek!

Off to walk the dogs and soak up some sun!  Yesterday we got a dusting of snow, but today it’s in the 50’s and tomorrow in the 60’s!
