Oats for Two

by Brittany on October 7, 2011

This morning I was up bright & early with the sun, and was glad to see that Stephanie is an early-riser too. Nothin’ like having a partner to enjoy a big bowl of oats with in the morning ;)


Stephanie requested plain oats with almond butter for breakfast, but I asked if I could have a little more leeway with her meal. Luckily for her, her breakfast was in very good hands.

I used Coach’s oats and my chia seed method to make a thick double batch for the both of us. Major kudos to Stephanie for being so open-minded with my giant cauldron of oats because from the way I was scurrying around the kitchen, who knows what kind of stuff I was throwing inside :D


Into the mix (for two) :

  • 2/3 cup Coach’s Oats
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Sliced banana
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

Naturally, I set out an assortment of nut butters for topping purposes.


Sunbutter & PB & Co. chocolate peanut butter, please & thank you :D

Today it looks like I’ll be introducing Stephanie to Bodyrock, and a dog park visit may also be on the agenda. We’ve got two fur babies that we need to keep entertained–

I’ve never had chia seeds before… seems like I need to change that. Looks like the doggies are having as much fun as you ladies :)

Ha! I love the picture of the dogs playing tug. My dog weighs 120 pounds. He “played tug” with a jack russell once. Basically: my dog ran around with a big stick, and the jack hung by the teeth to one side of the stick. Funniest thing I’ve ever seen.
