Let’s Talk About Oatmeal + Recent Meals + Purple Sweet Potatoes


  I spoke with two separate people over the last few days about eating oatmeal. I’ve been eating oatmeal for breakfast, every single morning, for years now.

Heat Wave Appetite (Recent What I Ate Wednesday Meals)


My appetite is definitely feeling affected by the heat. It’s not noticeable every day but some days, I’m noticing that I’m not as hungry. The thought of eating sometimes feels like too much in my stomach. I’ve even had a few moments where I think a smoothie sounds good and if you know me, you […]

Just a really quick look at what I ate yesterday! Obviously no breakfast pictures since I gave up remembering to take them! Maybe worth reporting is that I add organic strawberries in the summer to my post run bowl of oatmeal with the blueberries in place of diced apples. My breakfast is very similar to this recipe, […]

  Another Nor’Easter of snow on its way here to New York today. I’m not going to complain, just going to hope this is the last of it! They can’t even figure out if they should close the schools yet. It’s not supposed to get bad until later AND if they close a full day, […]
