Happy Ground Hog Day!  I love these crazy American holidays to break up the week!  Phil has a lot of pressure on his little furry shoulders.  I wonder what number Phil they are on by now?

I don’t know if it was Phil that inspired my oats this morning or the fact that I got in another round of core and arms before getting dressed, but they were amazing!


  • 1/3 cup oat bran, 1/3 cup h20, 1/3 cup skim
  • 1 large drop of almond extract (again crucial!)
  • 1 tsp chia
  • 1 tbs vanilla hemp protein
  • 1 tbs flax
  • cinnamon
  • 1 banana – 1/2 cooked in 1/2 sliced on top
  • 1 small handful vanilla almond crunch granola
  • 1 small handful of TJs fiber cereal
  • 1 tsp pumpkin butter
  • 1 tbs almond butter
  • 1 tbs orange cranberries

002 003 Drool!

And now for my favorite part of my morning posts! Food Rule of the Day brought to you by Michael Pollan! Rule #Eat Only Fruits That Will Eventually Rot.  “Food Processing began as a way to extend shelf life of food by protecting it from natural competitors.  This is often done by removing the nutrients that fungi, bacteria and insects are attracted to ie. omega 3 fatty acids.  The more processed a food is, the longer the shelf life, and the less nutritious it typically is.”

Time to get a move on.

Cheers to Phil!
