I did not sleep well last night. Well, I take that back. I slept okay once I fell asleep but it took me about two and a half hours to get to that point! I’ve always been a weird sleeper and wish I was one of those people that can just fall right asleep as their head hits the pillow…but no. Oh well. I slept in till 7:30 so I’ll be fine.
Today’s oats featured chia seeds!
I used to play a lot with these little nutrient dense seeds but don’t think I’ve ever put them in my oatmeal! So today I used 1/3 c oats, 1/2 c soymilk, 1/4 c water, 1 T chia seeds, 1 banana and 1 T almond butter:
I liked the end result…the chia seeds sort of “fluffed up” the oatmeal and gave it a nice little crunchie crunch.
I also had some new tea that the lovely Cynthia
sent me! Thank you, Cynthia
, I LOVED it! I miss Teavana
I have this neat little teapot that I got at a spa out in Arizona when I was 18. I rarely use it but really should more often because it rocks and makes the perfect cup of tea!
It has a little basket where you put the loose tea and then you just add the water, set a timer (or not) and let it brew! If you fill up the whole teapot it equals one mug of tea…perfect for one person! I really need to expand my loose tea collection. I have about a million tea bags (Anne
thought I was running a tea salon out of my kitchen) but no loose tea…and I LOVE loose tea. Especially from Teavana.
I have an important (and exciting!) phone call at 9:00 then I think I’m going to hang out on my mat with Dave
for awhile. Random question: is anyone going to the Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco
at the end of the month?! I’m dying to go and practice with Shiva Rea and Seane Corne. It would be aaamazing!
