Breakfast/ Lunch

Yeast Makes The Bread

Happy Wednesday! Although, THURSDAY is MY new humpday! 😉

This morning the store was all in a tizzy because we ran out of yeast. No yeast, no bread. Get it?! The yeast came in a couple hours late and as a result, we were rushing for certain all morning long. We managed to get everything done but not with a second to spare! I’m naturally a pretty fast worker though so I didn’t mind at all. I like being super busy and working quickly!

I had a lovely cashew larabar (my favorite!) before heading in:


And then more overnight oats for breakfast! This was sadly the last tiny bit of my pumpkin seed butter though….so sad! I love this stuff and 2 tbsp contain a whopping 10.5 grams of protein!!! Tomorrow I will be moving on to chocolate almond butter though so its all good 🙂


I ate a rather rushed lunch today since I had another dentist appointment. However, not too rushed that I couldn’t enjoy the oh-so-soft english muffin bread that my mom bought last night from Greenwise and that I baked yesterday at Greenwise! Check it out!


This bread is SOOOO soft and toastable. Hence the name, english toasting bread. I cut two rather thick slices and made a delicious grilled cheese and tomato sammie


I used 2 slices of boar’s head provolone and one thinly sliced tomato for this. A couple grapies on the side because they were on their last leg. The sandwich was heaven. SO soft and gooey with all that cheese. Love it!

Today I am doing another Dave Farmar power yoga podcast. I downloaded a whole load of them last night (I think there were 15 in total on itunes) and loved the one I did yesterday. Folks, if you have itunes, they are FREE! Such a great deal and that way there is NO excuse not to do yoga! I’m going to do a 75 minute one this afternoon and will let you know how it goes. I have to say, I am a little sore from all those chatarungas yesterday!

I was feelin’ a little snacky still after the dentist so I ate an orange and I’m about to walk Mikan and hit the mat! See you for dinner!

    Your loaf of bread is beautiful! Every time I try to make bread, or anything with yeast for that matter, it never turns out right! You have an amazing talent! What does the store do with bread that doesn’t get sold that day? Do you get to take home much? That would def be a huge perk!

    I LOVE pumpkin seed butter! I have been laughed at at work while eating it on rice cakes though. haha I guess the greeny-brown colour doesnt look appetizing to most people! So tasty though and higher in protein and zinc! than other butters.

    Question: When you do yoga at home how do you focus? Can you take us through a set-up of your home-yoga studio?

    Thank you!

      Hmmmm well I really just throw my mat down in the living room, where the is the largest area of space. And then I set my laptop right in front of me and zone out. I don’t usually light candles or dim lights because I practice more of a power style class. I love that you can do it anywhere! It gets a little annoying though when the dog or cat comes a lickin’!

    oh Jenna that sandwich looks soooo YUMMY!!!!!

    I love yoga at home… just throw down your mat, enjoy the space and maybe even light a candle. A non-smelly candle, that is. 😉

    Have a sweet night, my friend!! I need to read my Corinthians today! XOXO

    I like being busy at work too. It makes the day go by soo much faster!

    chocolate almond butter?? that sounds heavenly! I have yet to try a flavored nut butter. Maybe I need to rectify that situation

    That bread…WOW! I’m amazed, reading your blog and KERF that ya’ll can eat so much by way of grains and still stay so small. Lucky (hard working) gals.

    What brands do you like in the butters you get? And are any readily available online for shipping? We live on Guam and only have one tiny little organic/health food store with slim pickings. I have a spread from there I love made of coconut butter, acai, goji berry and nibs but its lower in protein than I’d like.

    I’m going to check out the yoga podcasts right now. Thanks for the heads up! I just got a Wii Fit last week and it has a nice yoga section…I have really been liking it a lot! So now I definitely want to expand into more yoga. Can’t wait to try these out now!

    Wow that bread looks delicous.
    Would you recommend the podcasts for someone who is pretty new to yoga? I would love to get more into it but a studio is just not in my budget right now.

    Hi! I love fresh bread, looks great! If your still looking for a good oatmeal recipe, I posted one on my blog for my take on baked oatmeal, which you make and set overnight and then cut into triangles and bake until crispy in the morning. Then I serve it with creamy yogurt and fruit. . .Yum!
