Yesterday all I seemed to want to eat was soygurt- Whole Soy of course- I had it for breakfast and lunch. I would have had it for dinner as well but hubby stopped me. Yesterday a.m. I had a big beige bowl of vanilla soygurt with cashews, flax sprinkles, oatmeal (not cooked) and a banana. I had seen on Caitlin’s blog about using uncooked oats in her oatmeal and I was skeptical at first but decided to give it a try. It is actually really good and makes the yogurt have a little more body and makes it filling. I even got the hubby to try it since to his disappointment I did not make granola as I had intended.

Since hubby decided to work from home/day a half PTO I didn’t go to the coffee shop like I usually do, we both commute to work right now and I have to be to work later than him so I hang out at Speeder and Earl’s sipping coffee and doing school work or blog posts. Anyways, since he didn’t go into work I didn’t have to leave early so I enjoyed some of my “weekend coffee” which lately has been from Paramount Coffee who was kind enough to send me a few samples of their coffee (I recently spotted some ground flavors at the local TJMaxx). My favorite of the three I received has been this Fair Trade Organic Community Blend which is a medium roast and is “A combination of Asian and South American coffees in a medium-dark roast. A very rich cup with low acidity and pleasant flavor. (source).” I have also been enjoying the Fair Trade Organic Swiss Water House Blend (Decaf) which I like to sometimes mix with my caffeinated beans to cut back on the caffeine. Both of these have been really tasty and I can’t wait to try the third one I received which is a Fair Trade Organic Music Morning- sounds uplifting eh?
Following work I headed straight home to get something to eat since all I had at the office were some veggie sticks, pretzels and Tribe Forty Spice Hummus which is my absolute favorite! However I was super hungry when I got home and to my disappointment the wonderful smell of food that I came home to was non existent, hubby had made himself lunch and it smelled amazing! So I turned to the soygurt this time mixed berry and added a little oats and flax sprinkles. I also made hubby and I a green smoothie to share that included a frozen banana, a packet of chocolate Amazing Grass, unsweetened chocolate Almond Dream, a small spoon of Sunbutter and lots of spinach. I also enjoyed a tangerine and some water out of my new water bottle from Earthlust. Isn’t this water bottle so cute? GUESS WHAT! I have one to give away to you all as well so keep your eyes peeled for a post tonight about how you can enter to win your own stainless steel water bottle from Earthlust.
I forgot to take a picture of dinner but don’t worry it wasn’t very appealing to the eyes however it was delicious! We had a mix of onions, peppers, celery, cabbage, mushrooms, broccoli and tofu all stirfried up with BBQ sauce, soy sauce, chili flakes, garlic powder, and a little brown rice syrup and I served it over greens. It was really delicious but I was hungry later so I had a small banana with Sunbutter as we caught up on an episode of House and The Amazing Race- I forgot how much I love this show, GO COWBOYS! Haha.
This morning I am just hanging out at the coffee shop sipping on some decaf maple french toast coffee and I ate a bagel with hummus and tomato that I had picked up before we left home. You’re probably saying why not just get a bagel at Speeders? Well I would but they have Montreal style bagels which have eggs in them! I know right BOOO! So they are usually pretty good and don’t say anything if I eat outside food- love Speeders.
Oh and P.S. I found the charger for my camera battery so no more mediocre iPhone shots!
Question of the Morning: What is your favorite soygurt brand and flavor?
