I got up this morning feeling refreshed… but with no voice. This cold is bugging me. I went for more of the Firm: Cardio Dance video (on Exercise TV; 25 minutes) and followed it up with YogaDownload’s Detox Yoga #1. It felt amazing.
Then I got adventurous with breakfast – pumpkin oat bran! I have never actually mixed pumpkin into oats/oat bran before and I was really excited… until I tried it. It was boring and blah. The peanut butter partially salvaged this bowl, but I will not be making pumpkin oat bran again.
- 2/3 cup oat bran, 1.5 cups water
- 1/2 cup pumpkin
- 1 tablespoon natural peanut butter
- pumpkin pie spice, sea salt
- almond milk (added post-picture)
I’m headed out to Lite for Life in Santa Clara. It’s a specialty shop that has lots of cool products, like PB2, which I have been dying to try. I’ll let you know what other goodies I get!
Bobby found this really interesting article last night and I thought I would share it with you. A new Cornell study (my alma mater) found that over the past 70 years, the Joy of Cooking’s average calories per serving has jumped 63%!

The other night I looked up to see this:
Couscous hiding under my yoga mat I have no idea how he managed to make himself a little fort like that. Happy Wednesday! I’ll be back later with a lentil recipe, a fun new yoga store, and other yums.
