Icy toes

Brrrrr, my toes feel like they’re about to fall off! Why is it sooo cold again?! I had to return to all the layers for my jog to the gym this morning. Once there, I just did 25 minutes on the Stepmill since I got the strength out of the way in MA yesterday. Then, it was time to come home for breakfast!

img_7853I had a perfect breakfast cookie waiting in the fridge this morning. No need to freeze this one! The cookie included 1/3 cup of Bob’s Red Mill extra thick oats, 1/3 mashed banana, 1 tbsp almond-cashew butter, 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 tbsp Newman’s dried berry blend, and the teeniest splash of soymilk. On top, I spread 2 tbsp PB2 (reconstituted with a splash of soymilk) and some nuts from the Easter candy my step-uncle gave me yesterday:

For extra staying power, I had a boat egg on the side with spray butter and freshly ground black pepper:

Plus another exciting new tea! I emailed Celential Seasonings a while back to say that I couldn’t find their dessert teas anywhere, so they sent me an entire box of Almond Sunset. I know this is breakfast time and not dessert time, but I had to try it out right away. I’m glad I did!

And now, it’s time to head back to work. I always feel so out of sorts after extra days off. It’s hard to re-adjust! Plus, I’m fuh-reeeeeeeeeeeezing.

Do you go out in search of day-after-Easter candy sales?

Last chance for safe pistachios! Get your entry in by 6pm tonight.

    That breks cookie looks really good, and normally I don’t think they do. Must be addition of cocoa. Smart! Maybe I’ll get up the courage to make one…someday.

    Nope, I do not go searching for Easter candy sales. In fact, last year I vowed that I would only buy things like cards, wrapping paper, decorations on post holiday sale! πŸ™‚ I hope you’re feeling better. Do you know anything about the Brooklyn half course? Bo and I are considering it but may opt out since that is the weekend after I move here so we’ll probably be busy painting, moving, etc.

    I hope your toes are warmer now. That tea should have helped. It sounds completely yummy, by the way. πŸ™‚

    I stopped by CVS just because it was on the way, but I wasn’t tempted by what they had left. No, Cadbury Creme Eggs or Mini Eggs? No thanks!

    OH MY GOODNESS! That breakfast cookie looks about 10x better than any one I’ve ever made!!! I’m cooking up a batch of hot pink steel cut oats as we speak… dark cherry and cinnamon!

    Sarah,
    I think you’ve definitely perfected the Breakfast Cookie. I’ve never made one that did not have to be placed in the freezer.

    Nashville was cold this weekend but it warmed up today. I’m sending warm rays northeast just for you. πŸ™‚

    Have a good week!

    I was planning on going for Easter sales today, but I ate a few too many Cadbury mini-eggs and decided it was better for me to stay away from the candy. We’ll see how long that lasts!

    Love the breakfast cookie!
