Behind The Butter

Still Full

Hi guys!

Happy Friday to you!

I decided to combine lunch and dinner in one post today because I got home from lunch rather late (since we had lunch near Ryan’s office in St.Pete) and then had to rush and do laundry before finally settling down for some yoga. I hope yall don’t mind!

I slept like a baby last night and when the alarm went off at 3, I had these deep sleeping lines everywhere on my body. That’s when you know you slept well! haha 🙂 I had a yummy lemon bar this morning—


And then my usual oats around 7:45 with chocolate almond butter (holy yum!!!) and brown sugar. I’ve eaten almost an entire cannister of oats in one week. Can you believe it?!


When I got off work around 12:30 I rushed to change out of my uniform and jump in the car to meet the boy. We ate at my favorite deli over in St. Pete—-City Cafe. I LOVE this place! Its definitely worth the 20-ish minute drive. I always order the exact same thing—the grilled turkey, gouda and tomato sandwich on rye with honey mustard.


It seriously might be the best sandwich in the entire world. Seriously.



This time I did the half sandwich/soup combo because its dropped about 20 degrees today outside and I was really feelin’ the tomato soup! My lunch also came with a little fruit bowl and I also had more than a couple of Ryan’s fries. 😉 After lunch they brought us cookies! How cute is that??!! They were very very thin and crispy and Ryan and I split one of them for dessert.


Yep, I stuffed myself. I didn’t know how full I was until 5:00 rolled around and I wasn’t hungry AT ALL for dinner. 🙁

I got home around 2:30 and decided to do a 60 minute Dave Farmar power yoga podcast after I let my food digest a little bit. It was a great class. Dave actually taped it from when he went to teach in Singapore for the weekend so that was very cool. I love these classes because they really focus on form. Just when you thought you couldn’t stay in reverse half moon for a second longer, he says “3 more breathes here”. Definitely humbling!

As I said, I was totally NOT HUNGRY for dinner. It was a real problem! I didn’t want to just not eat (even though I felt like it!) because I knew if I did that I would either be super hungry around 7:30 when I’m trying to fall asleep or be famished at 3 in the morning when I go to work. So, I decided to just have something light—pb& j and a fage.


I had my pb&j on the new bread I brought home from work—-oatmeal!


This is a very unique bread that we bake daily at Greenwise. It actually contains cooked steel cut oats right in the dough! Along with honey and then we coat the outside with toasted oats before baking. It is very soft and good for you!


It makes pretty much the world’s best peanut butter sandwich. SO good.

Sarah and I decided to do Beth Moore’s Esther bible study. We are SO excited! I ordered the book today on Amazon and we are splitting the cost of the videos so every week we will watch the video together and then do the homework on our own. I can hardly wait to start. And guess what I just found out (Erica, get ready to be SUPER jealous!)—-Beth Moore is coming to Orlando in September!!!!!! I freaked out when I found out actually! She’s going to be at the Deeper Still event and I HAVE to go. I’m already excited about it!

I’m off to fold my uniforms, take a bath and read. Have a GREAT Friday night and I’ll catch you tomorrow—-on MY friday! =)

    happy friday, jenna! there’s no way i could get the recipe for that bread, is there??? it looks like heaven– and so healthy!
    after reading your post about dave kicking your booty, i decided to try it today and did half of a 60 minute podcast. i absolutely loved it!! I THINK I MIGHT ACTUALLY LIKE YOGA NOW 😀 i love that he goes quickly from one post to the next– i think maybe the reason i haven’t like yoga before is because i’ve been doing hatha yoga this whole time??
    have a wonderful night <3

      I KNEW you would love power yoga!!!! I just KNEW it! 🙂 Unfortunately I don’t have the recipe for the bread—Publix is super secretive about their recipes…they don’t even allow photos in the stores! Crazy!!!

    Your PB&J looks delicious! Have a great Friday, on Saturday! I love the tiny container your have for your chocolate almond butter. That is a great idea. I always have to take the Barney Butter tubes with me to work if I want almond butter, b/c I hadn’t figured out another way to transport it. Great idea!

    I think your PB&J just might look better than your “world’s best sandwich,” but I wouldn’t turn that one down either =)

    Have a great weekend!

    Is that oatmeal bread just at Greenwise or can it be found in regular Publix bakeries? It looks so good! And the Lifeway Deeper Still event with Beth Moore looks like an amazing 24 hours! If I’m still in Florida, I will definitely have to keep that in the back of my mind!

      Just Greenwise! Its a special bread 🙂 Organic, also.


      Its actually cooked oatmeal inside of the bread! Crazy how it works.

    steel cut oats IN the bread? Be still my heart.

    I’m glad you guys decided – and yay for her being in Orlando in a few months! i’ve heard she’s amazing in person – she’s next on my list to see 🙂


    Jenna – have you ever read any of Angela Thomas’ books (Do you think I’m beautiful, When Wallflowers Dance, etc)? She is SO great in her books AND in person. I’ve seen/met her a few times, and she is just wonderful.

    ALSO – if you need some new books to read (and if you haven’t already read these), check out the O’Malley Series by Dee Henderson. Not counting Redeeming Love, these are my FAVORITE books. they’re so good!

    Mmmm… that bread looks so good. I just wanted to let you know that and that your blog is one of my favorites! It might be because of all the bread, I would have to say its probably my favorite food. 🙂 That sandwich also looks great. There’s an Italian place near me that makes great oven fired calzones and pizzas with smoked Gouda. They’re great!

    Also your lunch looked absolutely fabulous!

    You’re making me hungry!

    About that bread, do you have to soak or cook the steel cut oats, or do they soften up enough when baking?

    Chocolate almond butter *drool*… where do you guys all these crazy nut butters? All I can find in Toronto or Ottawa is peanut butter.
