I had plans to make myself a yogurt bowl this morning with Greek yogurt. But when I went to make it I realized that I had purchased the full fat Greek yogurt and decided to return it to Trader Joe’s later today. I opted for the second batch of oats that I had made yesterday, reheated in the microwave with a bit of milk and half of a small banana.
The bowl on the right is my breakfast consisting of:
- Oats made yesterday
- 1/2 of a small banana
- about 1/4 of a piece of gingerbread I made on Friday night (more about that later)
- Natural PB
In retrospect I should have put in the entire banana. My oatmeal was a bit bland at the end so I didn’t finish the last two to three spoonfuls. Rascal had no problem eating it for me. He loves finishing our food which I usually only let him do if it’s just leftover residue or something really healthy like veggies.
Brad’s breakfast is on the left. He likes vanilla yogurt while I prefer Greek unless I’m making a smoothie. His breakfast consisted of:
- 3/4 cups of organic vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
- about 1/4 of leftover gingerbread
- Natural PB
He didn’t care for the PB/blueberry combination. I in turn, will eat PB on anything that will stand still long enough. Although he did like the PB/gingerbread combo.
We also had coffee which is a morning staple for me. I usually have two cups but only wanted one this morning
Brad bought me french vanilla coffee once thinking I would like it. Usually the flavor in flavored coffees are way too strong for me. However, last Christmas I learned a trick for his mom. I mix the two making the flavored coffee way more subtle. Currently we’re drinking the free trade breakfast blend from Trader Joe’s. I mix the two using two parts regular coffee and one part flavored. The mixture is just right. Not too vanilla-y.
Now we’re off to try a new church. Since moving here the only church we have attended is the church I grew up in which is a good 45 minutes away. Hopefully we can find a place we like with the same laid back atmosphere.
