Good morning friends. I am currently sipping on my second cup of tea (decaf of course – too much caffeine makes me shaky). It is a cool day here in MA so a nice warm cup of tea or two is just what my chilly body needs.
I ventured to the gym this morning. I was unsure what the weather was going to be like this morning. There is rain in the forecast and I was not in the mood for another soggy run.
As I was on the treadmill, zoning out and enjoying my 7 mile run, the flavor of coconut kept entering my mind. I then started to daydream about my perfect bowl of goodness that I would make for breakfast this morning. After hitting the weight room and lots of stretches (using the foam roller), I headed home to make my creation. Well I took a much needed shower before actually making breakfast.
This bowl was filled to the brim with all things delicious.
I started by cooking a batch of stovetop oats – oh so fluffy and creamy, like cake batter. After the oats were cooked I started doing some layering. First came Organic Shredded Unsweetened Coconut, then a dollop of Plain Greek Yogurt – they are under there somewhere.
I then added chunks of banana around the edge of the bowl, 2 crumbled Chocolate Cashew Cupola Clouds and a little more coconut over the top.
Every bite had so much flavor and texture – so delicious!!! This was definitely the oatmeal bowl of my daydreams.
Today is family dentist day. It is actually D’s very first appointment. I am going to be the cheesy mommy taking pictures of him in the dentist chair.
I hope you all have a great day.
