I woke up this morning and did a 1 hour Yoga Download Power Vinyasa class. It was awesome! I forget how amazing yoga is and when I go back to doing it, I remember. I always finish yoga feeling not only like I got a great full- body workout, but that I stretched and balanced my entire body. It is also really powerful for me in times of stress, because it brings me to the present moment, to my body and my breath- and helps me to release both physical and mental tension.
YogaDownload.com is a great site, too! You can buy all kinds of classes and download them onto different computers (itunes or something like it) for up to six months after you purchase them.
After yoga, I decided to make a batch of “fall oats”, using hot multi-grain cereal that Loren bought at TJ’s.
Organic and great for you!
I made one serving of cereal with water on the stove, and at the end, added all of my “fall ingredients”: a splash of Almond Milk, a scoop of canned Pumpkin (!), cinnamon, a drizzle of maple syrup, a tablespoon of Peanut Butter, and half a banana. I also mixed in half of my Heart Thrive cookie leftover from yesterday.
I’m not a huge oats person because I grew up in Miami and we never had hot breakfasts. But I really loved this hot cereal- and the flavor combinations. Creamy peanut butter goes really well with pumpkin! I will definitely make this again- very soon :).
If you have never tried canned pumpkin in your oats, you must give it a try. You don’t need much- just a big spoonful. Mix it in while the oats are cooking in water and it will get nice and creamy!
Alright guys, the week has just gotten started and I’m already running late/ behind!
See you all this afternoon- have a great Monday!
