I’m VERY happy to tell you that I had a MUCH better day than yesterday. Thank goodness! Last night I went to bed at 6:45 (!!!) and felt very refreshed this morning after a good 8 hours of sleep. How crazy is that…I go to bed before most of you even eat dinner! I am 95 years old. Anyways! This morning I had another banana and peanut butter before work:
And more blueberry chocolate oatmeal AT work =)
My, how I just loooove those blueberries in my oatmeal! And I love that my bowl of oatmeal is so BIG and takes me my entire “lunch break” (how ironic haha) to eat! My boss calls me the oatmeal girl 🙂
After work I hung out for awhile and did some grocery shopping—nothing terribly exciting—just yogurts, veggie burgers and bread (of course!). When I got home, I made a grilled cheese sammie with my 100% whole wheat sunflower flax bread and one slice of pepperjack cheese. I had a cup of my favorite tomato soup on the side as well as a big ol’ cluster of grapes.
Mmm I love this bread that we make! It is LOADED with ground flax, whole flax seeds, sunflower seeds, honey and, of course, whole wheat goodness. It is a smaller loaf, which means smaller slices, but it is totally worth it because of the grainy crunch you get with every bite! Smaller slices = thicker slices in my book! 😉
This afternoon I’m going to run and then probably do a little yoga to ward off any sore muscles! Thank goodness tomorrow is FRIDAY!

I love bread like that! Around NY you see “health nut bread” that reminds me of this. It is SO good.

Am I the only one having problems seeing the images, other than the tomato soup? Oh well, I’m just happy to hear you’re having a better day today!

I’ve yet to find a Pacific Foods soup I don’t love. I’m just finishing a cup of the Butternut Squash! Mmmm!

Thrilled to hear today went significantly better! That grilled cheese looks great! I need to consider buying real bread soon 🙂
NatalieFebruary 12, 2009 at 2:56 pm
Glad today is better! The bread sounds delish!

There’s nothing like a grilled cheese with tomato soup to brighten your day! 🙂 Hope you enjoy your yoga!

hi jenna! (or anyone!)
just wondering, how do you feel about fage 0% vs. fage 2%? i accidentally bought the 2% yesterday instead of the 0 and LOVED IT but i’m not sure if the 0 is a better pick nutrition-wise?
MurphFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:06 pm
I don’t think you’re an “old person” for going to bed early – you get up at 3 a.m. for pete’s sake!
meganFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:18 pm
You would probably the love the sunflower seed cookies I buy at Whole Foods! Gracie’s Best is the brand. They are small and sweet and sunflower-y! yum 🙂
I love your grilled cheese and soup combo…perfect!
Have a good day, Jenna!

That bread sounds amazing. I often add flax seeds to my no knead loaf but have never tried grinding them first. How much do you add to a loaf?
jennaFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:58 pm
I honestly don’t know because I don’t do it! We have mixers that mix the bread and I form and bake the bread. We make about 50-100 lbs of dough at a time though so its on a huge scale!
I honestly like the 2% better because its creamier! I think it has about 50 more calories but is definitely veryyyyy creamy! Nutritionally, either are great. One is just made with reduced fat milk and the other made with skim.
AmeliaFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:23 pm
Wow now I’m seriously craving soup and a sandwich. I think I know what I’m doing for dinner. Thanks!!! 🙂
ShelbyFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:27 pm
The oatmeal girl…haha
Sarah (Tales of Expansion)February 12, 2009 at 3:31 pm
8 hours of sleep makes all the difference in the world! and that bread sounds amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing …
brandiFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:41 pm
Glad today was better – that bread sounds awesome
EmilyFebruary 12, 2009 at 3:48 pm
So glad you had a better day! Getting enough sleep is definitely worth the early bedtime!! 🙂
Have a great run!
BecFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:06 pm
Mmm, soup and a grill cheese sandwich is one of my favorite meals.
Mara @ What's For Dinner?February 12, 2009 at 4:40 pm
I’m so glad you got some sleep! That bread looks absolutely FANTASTIC!
KFebruary 12, 2009 at 4:48 pm
Glad you got some rest!! Pepper jack in grilled cheese is the best 🙂
CarolineFebruary 12, 2009 at 11:49 pm
Yum! Nothing says comfort quite like tomato soup and grilled cheese!
JessFebruary 13, 2009 at 11:09 am
I tried that soup last week and it is really good.
