With the time change and my hectic to do list a big glass of water and a cup of coffee has been my friend lately. I have to say though I have been a lazy friend to coffee and rather than taking out the french press and making myself a cup I have been turning to our Mount Hagan Organic Instant Coffee packets that I found on sale at the natural food store a few weeks ago. As much as I love my french press coffee I just don’t have the time or patience to clean it and baby sit it while I wait for my cup of coffee. We are actually thinking about getting a coffee maker- a whole new thing for us- any suggestions?
With my coffee I have been enjoying a big bowl of hot oatmeal with flax seeds, wild blueberries, cashew butter and Bee-Free Honee (giveaway coming later today so keep your eyes peeled.) I have been loving this combination of creamy nutbutter, sweet fruit and a drizzle of honee.
Also wanted to share a tip I learned (by actually reading the label on the nut butter); when you have natural nut butters that require stirring- stir them up real well until it is all combined and then stick it in the fridge and it will come out looking so good (see below). No longer will you have to spend hours stirring your nut butter before you can eat it and you won’t end up with an oily top and dry bottom.
Before I head to the kitchen to make myself a bowl of oats I’ll leave you with a mini updated about our new furry companion; he is settling right in and seems to love being with us. He has the funniest little squeak he makes and when he wants you to give him love and attention he hisses – strange right? He also has come to love to spend his nights sleeping with us.
