Carob Banana Oats n' Quotes


OIAJ for Breakfast! Yay!


This morning's version of Oats in a Jar: 1/2 cup Quick 
Oats cooked with 1.5 cups Water and 1/3 cup Egg Whites


Mixed with 1/2 cup Blueberries and poured into an 


Topped with 1 sliced Banana and 2 Tbsp Unsweetened Carob Chips


Although I usually make my own Wild Salmon Salad 
to save money, I decided to treat myself to the real deal...


Wild Salmon Salad from Planet Organic


Scooped the Salmon into a Whole Wheat Pita with some Lettuce


Who knew Omega 3's could look this good ;)


While blog reading this morning, I saw that Sara 
Nourish and Flourish has the same 2011 Agenda! 


Her Journal has different cover artwork, but we both
 ironically use our books to fill with inspirational quotes!


I bought mine from Bolen Books, but they are 
also sold in select bookstores and online here

and a single courageous step would carry 
us clear through them" - Brendan Francis

Love your oat in a jar recipe (because it includes carob!).

That's a great quote and so true. Our fears, little or bit, unfounded or completely rational can be conquered with just a little bit of courage and a little trust in ourselves.

I love journals :) And those oats sound yummy!!! At first I was going to say it looked like you had mashed bananas mixed into the oats, kind of like softserve, but warm! That sounds like something fun to try.....!

I love salmon sandwiches!! I'm just bummed that I can't get Veganaise in my town, I prefer it moreso than regular mayonnaise. Can't get much better than wild salmon, celery, peppercorn, vegansise, and sea salt. Yum yum!

Ameena said... [reply]

I've always known that you are a beautiful person inside and out...and now your handwriting just confirms that! Gorgeous!

I've never had carob before but I think I might have to go out and buy! Love your OIAJ :D I've never added egg whites to my oats before, I didn't know it made that much of a difference :D

Mandiee said... [reply]

i love the combination of blueberries, oats, and banana. i haven't had carob chips on their own before (only in one of my favorite gf baked goods) so i'd really like to try them. sounds yummy!
