I recently went on a kick of Oatmeal and fresh berries. I add Cinnamon, Honey, fresh Berries and Almonds and dig in. Sometimes I don’t have time to make this in the morning but luckily theres a spot on the way to work were I can get the same thing in Quinoa form. I took a chance and tried it, now I’m in trouble, I fell in love and want it everyday! Sometimes I order it for lunch and even dinner. Their’s contains Cinnamon, agave nectar, quinoa, strawberries, blueberries and almond slivers. Mmmm, I must try this with Pecans!!!! This even works as desert, or a snack!

Sharing is caring [Healthy Desert]

I sampled this the other day and loved it…

My New Treat [Starbucks]

I’m not a Starbucks groupie. I don’t like coffee, but if I had to choose a coffee house club it woulda been The Noble Tree. They closed 😦 The fireplace and fresh homemade pies  had me driving 40 min in the cold weather for a simple Ginger Peach Tea then I would proceed to use half their bottle of honey. Yum. I miss there bookshelf full of white coffee cups that were covered in interesting designs done in black marker and their old Atari or was it Pac-Man? There are a few other local coffee shoppes in Chicago that I love but I’m not naming names. They will stay my secret. As for chain coffee shoppes I do prefer Caribou Coffee over starbucks. That being said, I found myself at Starbucks in a study group and can’t stop thinking about the Green Tea Latte with Soy milk. But I better stop thinking about it soon, a medium has 50 g of sugar! Yikes! Too good to be true. click the links!

Some had bananas and Pumpkin spice, Nutmeg & Cinnamon and others had Blueberries, Honey and Cinnamon.

Whatever combo you like, use it.

Sweeten with honey or stevia and add a splash of almond or soy milk.

* Bananas used were Hard & Green, those are the best. Stay away from those soft Bananas.

Funny how your body starts craving very specific things.
