I woke up yesterday morning to a broken Keurig Machine. If you ask me, a broken coffee machine in the early am is the meanest thing that can happen when you first wake up.
Like, I don’t want to drive to Dunkin Donuts in my pajamas for coffee because I am too cranky without having my coffee to make it there and I don’t want to text my friend Meaghan to tell her I am walking over for coffee at 5:00 am because I can’t even speak yet to say thanks for the cup because I haven’t had a cup yet to make me friendly enough to do that even though she accepts me as I am to know there’s no way I can be nice at such an hour even though I call myself a morning person.
Didn’t my Keurig just break last year?! Why yes it did, here’s the post to prove it.
They certainly do not make these coffee machines like they used to, that’s for sure.
I had a small bowl of oatmeal with banana while I pounded on the dumb Keurig machine as if that was going to do something until I gave up and made a cup of instant coffee to hold me over until after my run when I would drive to Dunkin Donuts.
Post-run bowl of oatmeal with lots of blueberries. I mixed in Skoop B-Strong after taking the picture. The vanilla flavored Skoop combined with the blueberries, cinnamon and oatmeal is really a winning combination. It’s my blueberry pie protein oatmeal recipe. So simple and satisfying!
I headed over to Dunkin Donuts which was so beyond crowded that I decided everyone else had a broken Keurig machine too.
When I picked up the bagels at Stew Leonard’s the other day, I grabbed a fresh cauliflower too because they looked so nice on the display and it had been a while since I roasted a fresh vegetable in my house. Isn’t that crazy?! But you know, sometimes it’s nice to mix things up and not eat the same foods all of the time even if it means skipping the healthier nutrient dense stuff like vegetables.
I made a basic salad with roasted cauliflower on top plus chick peas which I added after taking the picture.
These days if I have dinner at home, I usually just make roasted potato wedges with tomato soup.
However, since I had chick peas left over from opening the can at lunch, I added them to a plate of brown rice and broccoli with tomato sauce and nutritional yeast. I really liked this random and quick combination!
By the way, my son caught wind of the bottle of nutritional yeast in the refrigerator and has made fun of me about it ever since. Why is it so funny? So what if it’s a vegan sub for parmesan cheese? Why must the kid make fun of everything I do? I know, it’s the age. One day he will appreciate me.
I am extremely bored with apples and peanut butter. It was really bound to happen and although I do still dice up the apples and dip them in the peanut butter jar, it’s not the nighttime snack that I crave anymore.
I don’t know what I crave anymore so I just had a few of my cupcake truffles that I hid from my son.
Be sure to check out what everyone else is eating today. 🙂
If you have a Keurig, how often do you end up replacing it? I once had a Keurig that lasted seven years!
Do you like to have coffee when you first wake up? Does it make you a nicer person?
We don’t need to discuss the election but I want to know if you were up late watching for the results?!
