Humpday Oats

Look at that face! That was the look I got all night while I was doing my reading. Sometimes he plops down right on my chest, and I can barely see over the book! Our old cats, Spotty and Sasha, used to sit right down on the newspaper or whatever else we were doing. Cats are very demanding of attention!

I had another sleepless night; I got up a little after I turned out the light and had this Clif Nectar bar. I used to eat these a lot sophmore year... they definitely taste more like a dessert, but they're a lighter form of Larabar. I think they're pretty good!

Warm bowl of oats to combat the 60 degree thermostat I woke up to:

1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/2 banana
1 tsp flax
small handful raisins
1 tsp brown sugar
1/3 cup skim milk

There's going to be some kind of parking drama (something about a crane somewhere near the parking lots?) so I'm going to get to school early so I don't have to walk a mile to get to class... Happy Humpday!

Aww my little siamese does the exact same thing! Eventually he starts licking my fac/neck though so if it's a good book he must be removed and placed next to me. Sooo cute though!

Katie... I'm TOTALLY with you on the Clif Nectars! But the Cocoa ones are totally Mcnasty. For me, at least. Chocolate + Fruit should never be in the same vicinity, let alone, COMBINED in a bar! It's mad funky.

You should totally contact Rob at Kardea Nutrition and ask him to send you a sample of his bars. IMHO (I'm not a big fan of Larabars and their Nutritional Stats are a little ridiculous to me... Read, SCARY. Haha- I'd so much rather eat something bigger and yummier than such a tiny minced-up-bar. ***DON'T HATE ME, PLZ.*** hehe). Anyways, the Kardea bars ARE INCREDIBLE, especially the Banana Nut and the Cranberry Almond! They are INCREDIBLY moist and their nutritional stats, phenomenal. 150 kcals with 7 grams EACH, of Protein and Fiber and they are DREAMY when eaten with greek yogurt in between bites and some tea. JUST PHENOM. I swear I don't work for Kardea, I just think they are incredible and you would adore them!

Happy Humpday!

(I didn't sleep too well, myself. But I'm feelin good today, anyway!)
