H-Oly-Oikos!

Happy Monday all!

I enjoyed some deelish muesli (aka overnight oats) for breakfast. I really prefer hot foods in the morning, but I had some yogurt about to expire and thought this would be the best of both worlds.

Boy this stuff was thick!

In the bowl: one plain chobani greek yogurt, 1/3 cup rolled oats, 1 tsp chia seeds, 1 tsp flaxseeds, 1/4 cup 2% organic milk, and 1 tsp agave. Stirred in today: 1 sliced banana. On top: sliced almonds.

(I left my ninja camera at home so I used my iPhone today)

I got gussied up today and wore a suit. I had my one-year review today. I love reviews because I love getting feedback and learning how to best approach the oncoming year. My review went really well…yay! :)

Because I was short on time this morning, I had a frozen meal – Kashi Black Bean Mango. It was pretty good, but much spicier than I thought (in some bites).

I tried my hand at marinated kale. It was ok, but I’m not ready to reveal the recipe yet. It needs tweaking.

Hot green tea and a GIANT organic navel orange (on sale at Earthfare).

I tried a new bar today – Ruth’s CranNut Flaxpower. It was really good. I’d definitely get it again. I liked the diverse mix of nuts and other ingredients.

Since I’m still not 100% from being sick this past weekend, I skipped zumba tonight. :cry:

Instead, I hit up the grocery store.

Everything but pickles were on sale: some new blue tortilla chips with flaxseed to try, nutella, Wild Blueberry Preserves (one of Dad’s fave brands)…

And H-Oly Oikos! The Oikos was on sale for $1 each!!!! Squeeeeee! I loaded up. :D

After getting a tip from Kath that the Harris Teeter had chocolate oikos, I decided to swoop up a box, even though they weren’t on sale.

Then, I had dinner with the girls:

Low-lighting food photography tip: The lighting was terrible. I had a tough time getting photos, but I turned my ISO up to 1600 (pictures are surprisingly not too grainy) and I opened my aperture wide open (f2.8) to get the fastest shutter speed.

We all 3 shared some table-side prepped guac (my new love…ahh!) and a pitcher of white sangria (the Monday special!)

Megan and I split a chicken chimichanga, which came with cole slaw and rice and beans. So tasty!

I had two of those yogurts about to go bad (ok, it expired today), so I prepped another batch of muesli tonight. I have an idea for an interesting twist that I’m going to try out tomorrow…wish me luck.

Bailey is a big fan of the overnight oats simply because he gets to lick the empty yogurt container.
