I slept for 12.5 hours last night.
Perhaps my epic sleep sesh was due to all the fun I had on Saturday. I woke up and ran a 10K race, braved a womenâ€™s show and sat on a panel about cyberbullying, and partied until 3AM for Nicoleâ€™s bachelorette. AKA I behaved like I had the energy of a teenager again. And paid for it dearly.
Every night, I pray that Iâ€™ll wake up to more autumn weather! Itâ€™s been so cold here and I really donâ€™t want to go back to steamy hot temps anytime soon.
In fact, I have the heater on!
And, of course, colder temps require warm breakfasts. I did some experimenting with teff today. The package recommends using it as a hot breakfast grain, so I gave it a whirl with some Irish style oats.
I was a little surprised when I opened the oats container and saw they werenâ€™t â€˜normalâ€™ oats. Whoops. And this brand is actually known for being contaminated with gluten â€“ double whoops.
Good thing I wasnâ€™t too crazy about the Irish style oats!
On the stovetop:
1/4 cup teff
1/4 cup Irish style oats
1 ripe banana
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup soy milk
I let everything simmer for 10 minutes and then scooped into a bowl with some strawberries. It was tasty, just not amazing.
Time to catch up on work. My work To-Do list is a mile long!
