Another INVINCIBLE saturday.

RUN: 10+ miles outside (-3 windchill. brr. but SO worth it)

EAT: After my run, all I wanted was something WARM.

So I hit up Einstein’s and got a Winter Roast Coffee. Or Two. Or three? That’s what I love about the place- you get free refills! So as I sat there catching up with some friends, I kept going back for more! If you have never had the Winter Blend there, OH MY., you MUST try it. (Assuming that you like coffee, of course)

Here’s a description:

Winter Blend Coffee –One of our special seasonal coffees with a
special mix of vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg flavors.

P.S. I’m a wimp and mixed each cup with sugar and milk. I was tempted to try putting honey in my coffee but had never done that before so opted not to. Anyone try this before?

Delicious, no? I think I got so wired on the caffeine though, no sleep tonight!. Haha 🙂

Do you guys go to Einstein’s Bagel Co. too? What is your favorite??

OK , so Matt wanted to know how I made the Super Chewy, Super Hearty Oatmeal Pancake from the other day and this is how:

3/4 C. Oats

4 Egg Whites (Or Two Eggs)

1 Tsp. Cinnamon

1 T. Ground Flaxseed

Splash of 2% Milk

1 Tsp. Baking Powder

Mix together in a bowl (WELL), Pour into a hot Nonstick pan, flip after lightly browned-a few minutes, then transfer to plate. Top with your choice of Warmed berries, some more cinnamon, and my favorite: A little bit of Full Fat plain yogurt!

I also like to mix about 1/2 diced apple into the batter for more sweetness. (PS: THIS MAKES ONE HUGE, HEARTY PANCAKE, which I’ve grown to like better than a ton of wimpy small ones)

Here’s another favorite concoction of the past few days:

Lowfat cottage cheese, ground flaxseed, canned pumpkin, cinnamon, honey, fresh strawberries, ezekiel original cereal, and my FAVORITE, kashi heart to heart honey toasted cereal.
