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.

It’s starting to look a lot more like winter!

So there was this strange “Warm” Phase that we just went through and I thought winter was OVER…until today. That’s right, snow storms left and right. I don’t even feel safe leaving my house!

But i did.

RUN:

TWO A DAY!!!!!! (Another one of my “i feel invincible” days)

AM: 6 Miles @ 7:15/mi pace. Abs & Other Strength Work.

PM: 5.6 Miles @ 7:20/mi pace. Stretching

EAT:

Okay today during class I made the best discovery in the WORLD. So Kashi sends an e-mail saying that some free goodies are coming in the mail and all that runs through my head for the next few weeks is “free kashi samples. free kashi samples. free kashi samples.” I swear to god, I could LIVE off of that brand…I have not found ONE kashi product that I will not eat.

SO HERE IT CAME, YESTERDAY IN THE MAIL. (a little too excited)

A blackberry graham SOFT-BAKED bar. I always see these in the grocery store but have never picked them up. WOW. Can you say tasty??

Of course, Kashi sends me great coupons to go along with (which I may be using and sharing VERY soon…)

And an “ingredient decoder”.

Pocket sized…perfect!

I’d say this bar has the soft texture of a Nutrigrain bar, and overall taste of one too. It is much sweeter than other Kashi products that I have tasted before, but the nutrition and ingredient profile still are just as impressive. What I especially liked is that they did not skimp on the “fruit filling” at all. There is a layer that runs through the entire width of the bar. This flavor is very good! If you are looking to a healthier alternative to Nutrigrains, this is your route to go. They also come in Apple & Strawberry flavors too.

What a perfect mid-morning pick-me-up that’s light yet filling!

This is my second Kashi sample that I’ve received in the mail. I first actually got a tote bag from them, then a VIVE sample (keeps the digestion regular.), and now this. Super!
