10 Hour Night

Due to my frugal Saturday night…I got 10 hours of sleep!

Last night, I just kind of hung around the house and got some little things done.  Cleaning? Check.  Laundry? Check.  Job applications? Check.  Trashy TV?  Check.

For some reason, I wasn’t very hungry last night.  Since this happens like NEVER, I took advantage and munched on my last Heart Thrive vegan energy bar in Raisin Spice.  These bars were good – dense, chewy and flavorful, if not a little bit dry.  Paired with tea or coffee however, they are really good.  I think my favorite flavor was the Raisin Spice…

I took a short brain-break walk later in the night, then came back and made Green Monster #2!  This recipe was much simpler and basic than my first one but still good!

1 cup Oat Dream oat milk
1 banana
1 large handful baby spinach
2 handfuls of ice

Now that is one green monster!  With all the banana-ness going on, I don’t think I could really taste the oat milk.  I might have to have it with some cereal or something to give a proper review.  Didn’t hurt the smoothie though, so far so good!

This morning, after a luxurious 10 hours of sleep, I relied on one of my FAVORITE blogger recipes to make for breakfast.  Enter Oaty Cakes from Yoga is Yummy…

I made three slight modifications: organic nonfat plain yogurt (for Greek yogurt); 1 tbsp. raw cane sugar (for the brown sugar); and 1 tsp. of cinnamon (instead of 1/2 – I LOVE my cinnamon!).  Served with some joe & skim milk, and smothered with about 1 tbsp. raw almond butter, 1/2 sliced banana and a drizzle of maple syrup: HEAVEN!  Seriously, these pancakes are my new favorite.  Try.  them.  now.

Does getting lots of sleep sometimes make other people MORE tired?  I think that is what’s happening to me right now.  I need to wake up, scoot my buns outside and enjoy another glorious, sunny Sunday.  Enjoy!

The oaty cakes look amazing! I know I definitely feel more tired if I sleep more than 8 hours.

Too much sleep makes me super drowsy. Ugh..hate that feeling!

Oaty cakes? I’m going to try those this week! :D And I’m the same way with cinnamon…the more the merrier! :D
