Something Different

Happy Thursday to you!

I think we are headed into yet another rainy day over here. I don’t even remember the last time I saw the sun!

I was excited to dive into my new cereal this morning; as summer comes I crave hot breakfasts like oatmeal less and less and cooling meals like cereal more and more!


It had great stats—per serving, this cereal contains 200 calories, 3.5 grams of fat and a whopping 9 grams of protein!

I served myself about 1.5 servings in almond milk with a sliced naner in my pretty new bowl!


And had another grapefruit with agave on the side + yerba mate tea!


I LOVED this cereal. Crunchy and filling and sweet, but not overally so. It had little dried blueberries and lots of twigs and flakes. Yum!

I love my pretty bowl (and purple milk)!


Off to get ready for my hot yoga flow class~~see ya in a bit!

    me too. i crave cereal with a bite to it. not mushy cereal during the warm/hot mornings. Sometimes i even add an ice cube to my ‘cereal milk’. u know there’s a restaurant in NYC that sells cereal milk? it’s a best-seller!

    Once the summer hits I definitely find myself craving cereal or cold breakfast foods…and “with bite”, just like Kim said! Have a great yoga class!

    I am so jealous that you have hot flow classes near you. The only Hot yoga we have is Bikram 🙁 Have fun for me too 😀

    Will definitely have to try this. I must have some protein in the morning or I get hungry in 2 hours.

    Yes, these last four days are long one long continuum with all of this rain! I sorta like it though =)

    I agree, cereal sounds amazing right now in the beginning of these summer months. I need to stock up!

    Have a great time at yoga!

    cereal sounds so good right now! I’ve been having smoothies every morning because it’s been so warm. i love it, but i get hungry so soon, so i always have to bring a snack to work – normally cereal! 🙂

    Isn’t that cereal great? I have it regularly now. It tends to keep me full much longer then most other cereals which is great, and I love the flavor. 😀

    i love blueberries and cinnamon together in oatmeal, so I bet that cereal is great.

    enjoy yoga!

    I’ve always eyed that cereal in the store. Good to know you like it….maybe now I’ll finally pick up a box. It’s pretty pricey, thought, isn’t it?

    I miss hot yoga so much. The gym I belong to does not offer it. Instead, I do a class called “Body Balance” which is a fusion of tai chi, yoga, and pilates. Unfortunately, it is not geared for intermediate or high level students due to the fact that it is all over the place. I’m like you–I prefer the power yogas where I can really push myself.

    Please send your rain down here! 😉

    Have a great day, Jenna.

      Not yet! They said I wouldn’t be hearing from them for probably the next few weeks as they conduct preliminary interviews for the top 50!

    I definitely crave cereal in the warmer months! Wait, who am I kidding. I crave it year-round and round-the-clock. I’ve had that one before, and while it is super crunchy, yummy and has great nutritionals, I didn’t taste much cinnamon! That didn’t stop me from finishing a box in approximately three/four days. Have a fab morning!

    That cereal looks great! I will have to try it. I too get out of the oatmeal mode once the weather warms up so I’ll be looking for some new cold cereals soon 🙂 Have a great day!

      It is completely different. Hot yoga flow is a class performed in a room heated to about 95 degrees or so and is just…whatever! There’s vinyasas and well as both seated and standing asana. Lots of deep stretches, downward dogs, chatarungas, planks and standing splits!

    Blueberry cereal is so good. Not sure how much cinnamon is in the cereal, but did you know that a teaspoon of cinnamon has as many antioxidants as a half cup of blueberries! That’s why I add it to my smoothies now. I add spinach too, thanks to this blog!

    Optimum power cereal + soy milk is so delicious! I’ve been taking hot vinyasa yoga classes for the past couple of weeks and I love it! I hardly ever sweat (even while running!), but these hot yoga classes leave me soaked. I’ve started re-hydrating afterwards with coconut water – gotta replace those electrolytes 🙂

    I also start to crave cereal in warm weather. Most cereal tastes like cardboard to me and Nature’s Path is definitely a happy exception.

    I love blueberries in my cereal and I love the purple milk it leaves behind! Yum!
