Happy Friday! Today we’re going to talk about quirks.
One of the “exciting” things about new relationships is discovering the little quirks about a person that make he or she special. (Ok, let’s be honest, sometimes these “quirks” are just strange and not as endearing as one would hope). Well, I happen to be a very unique individual, so I know my BF has had a wonderful time discovering all of my quirks. He’s still not done yet…there’s plenty more.
I shall make you do many weird things…like take pictures of us and our food everywhere we go…
For example, he is “fascinated”by my propensity to eat foods that a five-year-old consumes. Each time he looks at me in pure shock, I say to him, “Hey, you’re never too old!” Plus, when I become a mother, I can save on groceries by just eating whatever my toddler eats.
Anyway, I thought it might be fun to do some semi-regular posts on these foods and why I enjoy them. Call it nostalgia, call it Peter Pan Syndrome, call it whatever you want. All I know is that it is fun to let loose and enjoy a Dunkaroo every now and then! Continue reading
Ever since I started reading healthy living blogs, I’ve noticed a recurring theme: Oatmeal. Lots and lots and LOTS of Oatmeal. Healthy people love oatmeal – This is not a subjective statement: it is a fact that has been proven by countless healthy living blogs and magazines. Luckily, I too am a fan of this magical grain. And always have been (although it was generally in instant packet form). I am always so impressed with the oatmeal creations that you people come up with. Continue reading
I can do better than that, Mr. Quaker!
Last night, I couldn’t sleep SO I decided to sleep in, skip the morning workout and make a tasty breakfast instead. I have been craving cinnamon rolls ever since I took the train to the National Marathon and walked past the tempting Cinnabon store in Penn Station. The smell alone is enough to make a girl swoon! Perhaps I could have justified purchasing one after I returned from DC. After all, I had just run 26.2 miles! BUT, I think it is a bad idea to reward myself with food all the time: I eat to run. I don’t run to eat (Again, don’t always follow this logic but I try…)
So, today, instead of having UNhealthy cinnamon rolls for breakfast. I satisfied my cravings with Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal. I knew that boxed oatmeal just wouldn’t do the trick. I picked up the recipe from LiveStrong, but made a few substitutions and swirled in a little “healthy” cream cheese icing: Continue reading
Sometimes I have to pinch myself !
For those of you lookin for a little something different for breakfast tomorrow, I think I have a winner….
This morning, I needed a pick-me-up from a long week at work…so I went for a short 4 mile run in beautiful Central Park. Great ideas often come to me when I’m running. It must be my amazing playlists. Anyway, I thought of the oatmeal waiting for me back in the fridge. I made it last night using Almond Breeze to give it a calcium kick and some creaminess. I was feeling very blah about the breakfast that awaited me.
