Oatmeal Love

in All Posts

Catching up on the weekend?


Happy Valentine’s Day.  🙂


Wheatberry and oats, anyone?


In the mix, all prepared on the stovetop:


  • 1/2 cup cooked wheatberries
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 banana
  • Frozen strawberries
  • Chia seeds


Other fun things:


I posted the Mushroom Noodle Bowl recipe here!


And if you click the image below, you can print off two Operation Beautiful Eye Charts to post in public places.  Spread the love on Valentine’s Day!


If you post the Eye Chart somewhere today, will you take a picture and e-mail it to me at OperationBeautiful@gmail.com?  Thanks!


And… I’m off!

    beautiful roses! And that eye chart thing is so cute! I’m working from home today, otherwise I’d be all over that!

  • Kara February 14, 2011, 10:47 am

    You know, if you had like an Operational Beautiful store (like some people do that Open Sky stuff) with things like that chart, but framed, I bet people would buy it. I for one would get something like that for my baby’s room so she could grow up seeing it everyday 🙂

    • Caitlin February 14, 2011, 12:28 pm

      Hmm I really need to do merchandise. It’s just so hard because I’m not good at design stuff.

  • skinnyrunner February 14, 2011, 10:56 am

    after seeing your gorgeous ones, i think its high time i got some flowers around here… where is my husband when i need him?!

  • Faith @ lovelyascharged February 14, 2011, 11:22 am

    Will this post be my Valentine? Between the recipe, the wheatberry breakfast and those awesome creative OBs, I think I’m in loooove 😉

  • Caroline February 14, 2011, 11:32 am

    I have a class near the optometry school this week – I’ll try to post it up there, I’m sure the OD students would get a kick out of it!

  • monicanelsonfitness February 14, 2011, 11:33 am

    Happy V-day!

    I am eyeing those scones, they look easy and super tasty!

  • Melissa February 14, 2011, 11:42 am

    Random, but just wanted to share: someone had a “You are Beautiful” sign at the Mercedes Marathon yesterday 🙂

    • Caitlin February 14, 2011, 12:28 pm

      That is so awesome! Did you snag a pic?

      • Melissa February 14, 2011, 1:09 pm

        Unfortunately since I was running with a friend, I decided to run without my phone…so no picture 🙁

    That eye-chart is SOOO neat!!! I wish I had my camera with me because I am totally printing this off and putting it up in the locker room at the Y. I hope the janitor ladies let it stay up… they’re super strict about stuff like that!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin February 14, 2011, 7:24 pm
