Hello all! How was everyones weekend?
It still continues for us over in Canada land, since it’s Family Day. Yes, this is a very random holiday, but at least we get an extra day off:)
I hope all of you who got a plethora of snow are keeping safe and sound. No snow over here. Sad. Actually, over the weekend we had almost spring weather, it was so very pretty.
Let’s focus on the marvelous things I’ve been doing and making the past few days.
This weekend was pretty spectacular in the dream department. Waking up with a clear mind and a beautiful day ahead is just the perfect way to start the weekend off right. Enjoying a sleep filled night has been so pleasant after suffering from those pestering sleep problems I’ve grown accustomed to.
It’s been a little weird though, I’ve gotten a good 7-9 hours of sleep the past 4 days!!!! Yet, I seem to be running on coffee. I’ve never felt so exhausted during the day.
Before the weekend got kicked off, I stopped by Starbucks to pick up some much needed caffeine. Anything below 0 cups and I simply don’t function a notch above lazy.
No matter how tired I am, I’ll always be able to make a delicious Breakfast…
A huge bowl of oat bran with almond butter.
Banana Coconut Oat Bran
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1 cup water
- 2 tablespoons coconut flour (SO good)
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tablespoon ground chia seed
- a pinch of stevia
Cooked up the night before in a sauce pan, and in the morning added the finishing touches: strawberries and almond butter. It was seriously like dessert in a bowl. The coconut flour brought out such a tropical taste.
Usually people are making “faux oatmeal” with just coconut flour and no oat bran, but I like to combine the two to make an ultimate bowl;)
The couch was getting a little too much action, so I agreed to meet my friend for more coffee. Yes, I sometimes go to Starbucks twice a day. When you’re looking insanely tired, red lips really distract from that fact. They are the perfect accessory for tired eyes.
Before more caffeine action, my hunger had to be satisfied.
Roasted kabocha plus coconut butter.
Nothing new here.
Did I mention the fact that this Spring I’m going to plant my own squashes?! So excited for this! Hopefully they will turn out, but I kind of have a black thumb so probably not, but I might as well try, right?
After coffee, it felt right to have some chocolate before I made Dinner.
This chocolate is delicious. I’ve been loving my consumption of chocolate and ever since introducing it regularly, I’m no longer plagued with a side of guilt. Sure, it wasn’t easy at first, but now I’ve gotten so used to it, it’s less anxiety inducing each time.
Sunday, I decided to completely unplug from the computer and enjoyed one of my ultimate favorite movies, once again. Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
I can watch this over and over and never get sick of it, Audrey Hepburn is amazing.
Tell me something about your weekend!
