Challenge: Day 1


Today my breakfast was most blogger like. Thanks to getting groceries yesterday I actually had peanut butter.

Yum, the chop stick worked awesome for mixing up my peanut butter.

And the main event: IMG_2628

Into Pot:
1/3 cup oatmeal
3/4cup water/milk
1/2 banana thinly sliced

3-4dates chopped
1 tbsp raisins
peanut butter. Don’t know how much. 😉

I then went for a 10k run with  my friend Ally. We’re actually planning to do a race in November (10k) and then a half-marathon in February. Awesome right? The run today was amazing, perfect autumn weather; sunny, colourful, crispy, cool, but not frosty or anything. Just lovely. So I’m pretty sure we did 10k, but my garmin wouldn’t start right away so it only recorded part of the distance…

Then I showered, blah blah. Then I had lunch:

Mack’s Flax, Silver Hills Bread
1/2 advocado
cheddar cheese

Notice the closed laptop, and the faraway remotes? Yep, this was my technology free meal of the day. Although tonight will also be technology free; I’ll be eating a free thanksgiving dinner at my friend’s residence. Hopefully there’s lots of vegetarian options! 🙂

Well I’m basically procrastinating doing school work, so I’ll say so long for now! But I’ll try and snap some shots of tonight’s meal.

    Yay for peanut butter. I’ve been out for almost 4 days now! I’m going crazy. Love the breakfast. Dates are awesome in oats. Have a great Thanksgiving!

    • Thanks!

      I know, how can you stand it? I think I had no peanut butter (or other nut butters) for all of 2 days and it was horrible!

      PS is it happy thanksgiving for you? Or are you in the states.

  3. Silver Hills! My bread of choice. Locally made, sprouted grain bread – how can you go wrong? I want to try their Hemptation bread, but apparently they only sell it at their store in Abbotsford 😦
