HAPPY NATIONAL OATMEAL DAY!

Ahhh, if I had only known October 29th was National Oatmeal Day my whole life, I would have enjoyed this wondrous bowl of goodness so much sooner.

Today, I tried out a bowl of oats I’ve never had before: Mexican Hot Chocolate Protein Oats a la Janetha!

1/2 cup oats
1 cup water + 1/2 cup skim milk
pinch of salt
1 packet Tera’s Whey Fair Trade Dark Chocolate Protein Powder
Lots of cinnamon
drizzle of agave
Dark Chocolate Dreams PB

Chocolate + cinnamon = GLORIOUSLY DELICIOUS.

Look at these beautiful stats + facts…

That would be about 30 grams total of filling protein. Not to mention, 90% of the bowl is organic, locally-made and natural.

Lunch was a yog mess made with homemade Greek yog.  If you haven’t been keeping up with the joneses – yes, you CAN make your own Greek yog for cheap!

1 cup nonfat organic homemade Greek yog
3/4 cup Kashi Heart2Heart
apple pie spice
1 sliced naner
glob o’ Bees Knees PB

That would be another 30 grams of protein in mi estomago (ahem, stomach).

Instead of snacking on the carrots I brought, I instead turned to a big ol’ handful of trail mix.  Watch out all you female bodybuilders, The Healthy Everythingtarian is on a protein binge!

Eight more grams.  Just not enough if I am going to win the Ms. Universe title!

After work, I snarfed down some PB+J toast (12 more grams) before hitting up Target Pharmacy before their 7pm closing time.  Now, I am home sipping on Pumpkin Spice Tea, making carrot fries a la mi maestra de espanol (carrots have protein, right? ;)) and getting down to business.

And by business, I mean turning myself into this…

Well if that body building photo isn’t startling, I don’t know what is. I used to have cheer+dance competitions at the Arnold Shwarzneger(sp?? I’m being a bad journalist and not fact-checking that right now) Classic, which is a body building competition thang. It’s WILD to walk around that place. Definitely interesting.

Please stop making me want Greek yogurt. I really really really miss it :*( Da messes look so good, and they work so well with that Greeky tang…shooooo homie be CRAVING.

Anyway, still no word from you know who. Crazy, right?

Please have a joyous weekend, my love XOXO

I’ve only had one experience with whey protein and it wasn’t edible. But dark chocolate protein powder sounds like something I can love.

You are just THE BEST for giving me homemade greek yog shoutouts! SO HAPPY you’re enjoying it!

I think you would make a fabulous Ms. Universe for Halloween!

Holy Canoli. That is insane!

It’s oat day and I’m not even having oats?! Hmm. Can one have oats for dinner? ;)

PROTEIN POWER!!!!!!! I just got a new chocolate protein powder and it’s amaaaaazing. I might take on the Ms Unverse challenge ;) Though that pic is a little intimidating.

Did the magazine come?..

Oats are magical! I eat them daily and have never considered adding some yummy chocolate. Oddly enough I just read another blog that said the same day was National Chocolate Day! Thank you for the great idea, I will be sure to indulge in such a nice way.
