Good Morning! Happy Tuesday!

I don’t know about you, but this morning I decided to forego a workout in favor of a few lovely extra ZZZ’s. I’ve got eight hours of sleep under my belt now, which is a good thing, because I’ve got a long day ahead of me!

To kick start the morning, I decided to make a breakfast switcheroo. As much as I’ve been enjoying my egg, cheese, and jam sandwiches lately, I was feeling the need for a little extra variety this morning.


I prepped a batch of Voluminous Pumpkin Oats, added it to my almost empty peanut butter jar, and topped it with some Love Grown Foods granola. This breakfast will never, ever get old.


I’ll tell ya, you know you’ve definitely got some volume in your breakfast when it can fill an entire (almost empty) peanut butter jar. That’s what I’m talkin’ about!


Sorry to make this morning’s post such a quickie (which is the reason for the post title…dirty minds if you thought something different!) – I’m running a little behind schedule and don’t want to be late, which I’m pretty sure is messing with my writing mojo. I am having total writers block this morning!

Questions for the Morning:

WOULD YOU RATHER (icky food addition!):

  • Sticky oatmeal –OR- runny scrambled eggs?
  • Week-old cheese –OR- super brown lettuce?
  • A cup of freezer-burned ice cream –OR- a piece of your favorite candy that fell on the sidewalk for 10 seconds?

Your oats look great! What kind of peanut butter is that?

I would go for the sticky oatmeal, I hate runny eggs!
Depending on what kind of cheese, a week may not make it so old, so I think I’ll choose the cheese.
I would take the candy. There’s a 5 second rule, why not extend it a little as long as the sidewalk looks relatively clean.

Sticky oatmeal is how I like my oatmeal anyway! haha!!


3 Jenny November 8, 2011 at 9:23 am

Freezer burned ice-cream. It’s still ice cream which means it’s still going to be delicious :)


4 Mallory @ It's Only Life November 8, 2011 at 9:25 am

runny eggs (i’m strange like that)
week-old cheese (considering cheese is just mold anyway!)
and candy (i’m not a germaphobe!)

have a fabulous day!

7 Courtney November 8, 2011 at 9:36 am

Haha, should I change it to month long maybe? ;)


8 Lauren B. November 8, 2011 at 9:36 am

Runny scrambled eggs! I only like oatmeal when it is just right!

Freezer-burned ice cream is the worst!

I agree – OIAJ will never get old!

I’d rather have sticky oats.
I think I’d rather have week old cheese. Although both options sound so gross to me!
I’d definitely rather have a piece of my candy that fell on the sidewalk for 10 seconds. That stuff doesn’t really bother me. ;)

Ah I also slept in today… til 11:30am (live in Europe)! It feels so good letting your body get the sleep it craves :)

Sticky oats – don’t mind them like that actually!
Cheese – hey, I’m sire it’s still good!
Ice cream – it should still taste good, if not add toppings!

Enjoy your day :)


14 Lena @Fit on the Rocks November 8, 2011 at 9:54 am

I would most definitely roll with the oatmeal, cheese, and ice cream…not that I’ve eaten them like that *cough cough*. I haven’t gotten sick yet lol :)

Oatmeal, cheese, and ice cream – you can scrape off the freezer burn!

Hope your day goes smoothly! :)

Yeah, you girls are right – I should have made it MONTH old cheese. ;)

I love when my oatmeal fills up the entire jar. I haven’t been able to stomach oatmeal or pumpkin since getting pregnant, but I’m thinking I need to try some OOIAJ tomorrow.

Help! My peanut butter jar is almost empty. I have not yet attempted OIAJ and am dying to. What do I do? =)


30 Courtney November 8, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Ohhhh, OIAJ is a wonderful thing! Just make your oats like you normally would (I make mine on the stovetop) and then just add ‘em to your jar. That’s it! :)
