Coffee, Oatmeal & Long Trail Plans

This morning had a pretty lazy start to it but now that I am looking at the clock I realize I have to make this quick and get ready for work.

I made the Hubz and I some oatmeal and coffee to start our day.  In today’s mix there was Scottish Style Oats, chia seeds (which you can now buy in my OpenSky shop), cinnamon, stevia, banana and Justins Chocolate Almond Butter.  I love almond butter and what a treat it was to have some a touch of chocolate with it!


To go with our oatmeal I made some of my favorite Kicking Horse Coffee in my Bodum Brazil French Press which is another item that is available in my new OpenSky store. In my last post I went through my process of making coffee using a french press but if you have any questions let me know!

The Hubz and I spent the remainder of the morning looking over this:

We have been trying to get out and do a few day hikes here and there so we were trying to decide where we would go the next two weekends. This turned into a discussion about where we should go for our week long hike next summer; yes I have been convinced to do a week long hike and I’m pretty excited about it. At this point it is a matter of picking up the supplies that we need over the next 9-10 months.

Q: Have you ever done a week long backpacking adventure?

Also a reminder that from now until August 16th when you use coupon code EXCITE25 you’ll receive 25% off any product on OpenSky.


  1. I ONLY use a French press for my coffee now. I couldn’t go back to using a pot. It’s soooo much better with a press. I took a backpacking course in college that culminated in a weekend long trip in the Ozarks. It was fun, but I doubt I’d do it again. It was an ROTC course and we had to practice our survival skills and eat MREs (which are very un-vegan friendly…).

  2. I want to go on a backpacking adventure! Love the breakfast bowls – looks like my usual: oats with Justin’s + a french press of coffee 🙂
