Just Call Me Ms. Universe

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…


“I’ll be back…”

Until then, go show my gal Ruthie some love by welcoming her back to the blogworld and entering to win some of her homemade inspirational magnets!

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.
