Do you ever have those days where you just do not feel like yourself? I am having one of those such days today! I think part of it has to do with me not sleeping well. I tossed and turned all night! I also think I am coming down with something!
When I am having these types of days I always reach for comfort food! And as mentioned in the earlier post steel cut oats are my new comfort food. So it is now 11:30 and I have had steel cut oats twice today! Once for breakfast, and once for lunch and let me just say that both times they were amazing!
Here is what went into my lunch!
My lunch oats consisted of one cup Steel Cut Oats, 1/2 Banana, 2 strawberries sliced, a tablespoon of Granola, and one heaping tablespoon of peanut butter!
Here the oats are up close! And yes that is a duck bowl! I fell in love with these bowls the minute I saw them at Sur La Table. The duck bowl instantly takes me back to my child hood. When I was younger I had a plastic bowl with my name on it and 3 painted ducks, now that I am 24 I have a sophisticated all grown up duck bowl! Don't those oats look yummy?
Before I go I need to tell you that I am obsessed with the new granola I tried! I went out on a whim at the grocery store and bought a different brand granola. This was hard for me because usually I am pretty set in my ways when it comes to granola. I always buy the Bake House Granola. It is made in Bloomington Indiana and I have to say that nothing compares to it, unless I am at Cafe Patachou! Anyways the granola I bought was Udi's Natural Artisan Granola. They have a few different flavors but I decided to go with their Hawaiian blend!
This granola has great flavor, and great mix ins! Not only is the granola crunchy but there are huge chunks of pineapple, coconut and ginger toasted macadamia nuts! So good!
Now if you will excuse me I have to g make more oatmeal for the rest of my week! I seem to have eatin it all!
I hope you all have a fabulous day! Tonight Mark and I are making creamy spinach pasta! Stay tuned for the recipe, and remember to live Happily Ever Healthy!
