Three months, two days, one hour, fifty-seven minutes…
Not that I’m counting or anything.
It’s been a long time in the making. A long time.
But as of this morning, I am thrilled to announce…
OIAJ are BACK!
Wahooo!! C’mon, let’s all do the happy dance, shall we??
Ever since finding out that I have a slight food allergy to oats, I have not once touched a bowl of oats. Not overnight, or in a jar, or even off the stovetop. Thankfully, I was lucky enough to find a fantastic replacement and was able to keep my sanity. But it still just wasn’t the same…
The more I thought about it, it’s not like I haven’t been eating oats at all. I eat them in granola, I bake with them in quick breads, and I devour them in oatmeal raisin chocolate chunk cookies. I could never banish them forever! And to be honest, I really didn’t notice much of a difference in how I’ve been feeling anyways.
So when the oats and I were reunited this morning for breakfast, it was pure bliss. And on top of all that, this was the first time I’ve had my OIAJ with chia seeds added to the mix. Talk about a #winning combo.
It’s pretty likely I’ll be on Cloud 9 all day now.
AND doing that happy dance.
Question for the Morning:
Have you ever eliminated a food/food group/etc and ended up bringing it back?
