The award for most filling + delicious breakfast combo of the week goes to:

Corny Oats!!  Flavor, texture, volume, toppings.  This bowl has it all!

(1 of 5)

Using just over 1/2c grains + 2c of liquid definitely helped with the fullness factor.  I’m also loving ground flax as a topping, instead of a mix in.  And ohhh that coconut butter

A chaise…

And now the most exciting…

My lunch!

Take Thursday’s 7 Spice Bread

  • toast it
  • top it with tomato paste
  • then add on sauteed, thinly sliced tempeh with coconut oil, cumin, garlic, cayenne, smoked paprika, s+p
  • topped with 1/2 an avocado
  • s+p
  • drizzle of hemp oil

…and what do you get?

A pile of chewy, crunchy, toasty, creamy, salty, spicy deliciouness.

Sippin’ on my favorite brew, Eclipse Brown Ale.  Yes, I have a different shirt on.  I had to change after Chris pointed out the 3” hole in my armpit.  {hot}

A HUGE congrats to Melissa, Matt + big brother Jake, and their new bundle of joy, Samantha Ann.  She was born Friday afternoon, weighing in at 7lbs 8oz and 21” long.  Melissa and I have been best of friends since 6th grade, and I could not be more excited for their newest addition.  They didn’t know the sex, so it was quite the surprise, as she was convinced it was a boy!!
