Simple Sunday

in All Posts

More acupuncture, more sleep!  And it feels so, so good.


Happy Sunday.  We have a fun, relaxing day planned, and I’m very much looking forward to getting it started.


You know, I think this yogurt mess is my absolute favorite combination.




Raw oats

Vanilla Greek yogurt

Sliced banana

Sesame-seed covered cashews


Do you love yogurt messes too?  What is your favorite combination?  Maybe I should branch out a little bit!



  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs January 22, 2012, 9:57 am

    Have a great, relaxing Sunday! Enjoy!

  • Khushboo January 22, 2012, 10:00 am

    Love yogurt messes with strawberries, banana, raw oats, almonds and honey!

  • Karlee @olivewineandfood January 22, 2012, 10:01 am

    i’ve been on a yogurt, chia seed, granola and banana kick.

  • Alex @ Raw Recovery January 22, 2012, 10:10 am

    I am really liking the Amande brand of almond milk yogurt with dried cherries and granola.

  • kathleen @ the daily crumb January 22, 2012, 10:10 am

    my favorite combo is greek yogurt + pumpkin topped with PB puffins, almonds and a drizzle of almond butter. the best!

  • Alett January 22, 2012, 10:13 am

    Happy Sunday Caitlin!

    re branching out…how about warming up some frozen cherries and adding that? (my close friend LOVES warmed cherries on her yogurt).

    I’m trying to get inspired to go out to do a long run in *gulp* 18F crisp weather.


    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:30 pm

      Cherries sound awesome.

  • Julianna @ Julianna Bananna January 22, 2012, 10:15 am

    my current favorite yogurt mess is vanilla greek yogurt, raspberries, crumbled homemade pumpkin protein bar, and a drizzle of apple butter from TJs.

  • Debbie January 22, 2012, 10:18 am

    Are raw oats just uncooked oats?

  • Kim January 22, 2012, 10:19 am

    Where do u get sesame covered cashews?

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:30 pm

      Trader Joes!

  • Natalie @fitjamericangirl January 22, 2012, 10:25 am

    I like to do my yogurt parfait style. No matter the variation, it aways includes chocolate chips. Yum!

  • Lindsey January 22, 2012, 10:28 am

    Plain Greek yogurt, 1T peanut butter, 1/2 sliced banana, a few chopped strawberries and 1/2 cup Multigrain Cheerios – soo good!

  • Kristen@Change of Pace January 22, 2012, 10:36 am

    I call it loaded yogurt. Like a loaded baked potato 🙂 My favorite is vanilla greek yogurt, chias, banana, and a scoop of pb or almond butter. It’s so fresh and keeps me full!

  • Ali January 22, 2012, 10:47 am

    My current obsession is a mix of plain fat free Greek yogurt, honey, blueberries, and chia seeds. So good!

  • Jill January 22, 2012, 10:50 am

    I like chobani yogurt (plain or lemon) with slightly defrosted frozen strawberries, chia seeds, Grape Nuts or Ezekial cereal (basically not-sweet crunchy cereal), and maybe some honey if I’m using plain yogurt. Yum!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) January 22, 2012, 10:56 am

    I miss yogurt dearly. Dairy free is just not the same. My boys are now into yogurt and I love it! They even like the greek stuff so I’m super happy about that!

    Question, do you have to get the sleep acupuncture right before bed or can you get it anytime of day? I’m asking because my husband is working long hours at the computer and having a hard time getting a restful sleep. I was considering talking him in to this method to help him out.

    Have a great day Caitlin!

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:31 pm

      I get it right before bed but you don’t have to – anytime of day will help you sleep later, if you get treated for sleep.

  • Lauren January 22, 2012, 10:57 am

    I just started eating these since I’ve been prego as well. I love Greek yogurt, raw oats, chia seeds, almonds, pb, strawberries, blueberries and banana. Cooked oats are good in this mess also. Now I’m hungry 🙂

  • Jolene ( January 22, 2012, 11:00 am

    My favourite yogurt combination EVER is Source brand, vanilla yogurt with maple PB in it.

  • Ari @ Ari's Menu January 22, 2012, 11:13 am

    Vanilla Greek yogurt + pumpkin puree + chopped apple + chia seeds + any cinnamony cereal + extra cinnamon.

  • Anna Crouch January 22, 2012, 11:16 am

    Do you get those cashews from Trader Joes? I know I’ve seen them somewhere but I can’t figure it out!!

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:31 pm

      Yes soooo good too!

  • Sarah January 22, 2012, 11:34 am

    I am obsessed with yogurt messes! Must haves: greek yogurt and peanut butter plus FRUIT.. banana blueberry strawberry.. then oats or granola.. maple syrup doesnt hurt either!

  • Lindsay @ Running the Windy City January 22, 2012, 11:40 am

    I love crumbling a muffin into yogurt, the texture is so delicious!

  • Chelsea January 22, 2012, 11:43 am

    I wish I was having a relaxing Sunday 🙁 I missed yesterdays long run so I’m going to make up for it today. I’ll be relaxing afterr my run though!

  • Rachel January 22, 2012, 11:44 am

    So glad to hear you got some more sleep! It was so nice meeting you yesterday at the book club meet up 🙂

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin January 22, 2012, 12:00 pm

    I am obsessed with yogurt messes! My favourite combination is vanilla Greek yogurt, Kashi Honey Almond Flax cereal, banana, blueberries and raspberries. That combination never gets old! 😀

  • Christine @ BookishlyB January 22, 2012, 12:16 pm

    Just finished vanilla nonfat yogurt (I cannot stand Greek… I really wanted to love it but couldn’t), some Honey Bunches of Oats and a banana. It’s also my lunch every work day!

  • Marla January 22, 2012, 12:16 pm

    Every time you write “raw “oats
    my silly inner proofreader wants to shout
    out , no , they aren’t raw !
    Rolled oats have been steamed and
    also often toasted before you buy them .
    ( silly word rant over 😉
    Anyone else ever have these silly irritations when
    they are reading their daily blogs? Ah,
    human nature!!

  • Katie @ Peace Love & Oats January 22, 2012, 12:17 pm

    I’m not a big yogurt mess person, I like my oats cooked!

  • Marla January 22, 2012, 12:18 pm

    PS Sorry for my poor typing skills-
    trying to get used to my new iPod !

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:32 pm

      Ooo fun! I love new gadgets.

  • Sneakers2sandals January 22, 2012, 1:01 pm

    Yummm I think any time some naners are added to yogurt its good )

  • kate January 22, 2012, 1:18 pm

    where do you get those sesame seed covered cashews? they always look so good!

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:32 pm

      Trader Joe’s 🙂 They are delicious. They also have almonds.

  • Greta @ Staying Lost January 22, 2012, 1:32 pm

    Vanilla yogurt + defrosted blueberries + raw oats + almond butter. I ate it for breakfast all last week!

    (And the cashews are from Trader Joe’s, I believe. I love the almonds with the same coating.)

  • Army Amy* January 22, 2012, 2:16 pm

    Looks yummy! I don’t do oats; waffles with pb is my breakfast of choice.*

  • Amber K January 22, 2012, 2:19 pm

    I love my yogurt with oats and cinnamon. With chocolate peanut butter and an apple on the side 🙂

  • TeenyLittleSuperChef January 22, 2012, 2:23 pm

    My all-time favorite yogurt mess is Greek yogurt with pumpkin, cinnamon, peanut butter and banana slices. I could probably eat that every day for the rest of my life and never get sick of it. I tried to branch out a couple times but each time I always wished I had just stuck with my favorite and not worried about trying to be different. If ain’t broke, keep eating it, right?

  • Keri January 22, 2012, 2:35 pm

    Yogurt messes are one of the things I miss most since going vegan. Almond and soy yogurts are not the same. Oh well….On another note, are those roses growing where you live right now?!

    • CaitlinHTP January 22, 2012, 6:33 pm

      No 🙂 I wish. All the roses are dead. It’s just a pretty old picture!

  • Sarah January 22, 2012, 3:13 pm

    I love yogurt messes! I use vanilla soy yogurt, pumpkin, cinnamon, raspberries, and nut butter. Sooo good!!!

  • Claire January 22, 2012, 3:30 pm

    Yoghurt mess is the best – my fav combo is natural greek yoghurt, raw oats, raspberries, raw almonds and chopped dates. I have it nearly every day for breakfast.

  • Linz @ ItzLinz January 22, 2012, 3:57 pm

    i do love yogurt messages! i typically do yogurt, fiber one/raw oats (thanks to you!)/granola, raw almonds, fruit, and chia seeds! so many ways, so many options!

  • Rachel January 22, 2012, 4:12 pm

    Yummy yogurt messes! My favorite is defrosted and warmed frozen mixed berries and cherries, plain greek yogurt, raw oats, chia seeds, walnuts, and cinnamon. I’m too lazy to branch out though…

  • Amber @ Bold, Busy, Blessed January 22, 2012, 4:23 pm

    I love granola in my yogurt messes. My fave is probably some strawberry banana Chobani with some chocolate chunk granola, with some banana chunks. Tastes like dessert 😀

  • Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie January 22, 2012, 5:21 pm

    I love the combo of bananas and blueberries 🙂

  • Brittnie (A Joy Renewed) January 22, 2012, 5:35 pm

    Yes I love a good yogurt mess! My favorite combo is Fage 2% greek yogurt, banana, some type of cereal (depends on my mood!) and a nice scoop of nut butter. 🙂

  • Maria (RealFitMama) January 22, 2012, 5:39 pm

    My absolute favorite yogurt mess is crunchy peanut butter and dark chocolate chips melted in a bowl then topped with banana slices and either black cherry or pineapple chobani. So yummy!!

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey January 22, 2012, 7:50 pm

    I enjoy yogurt messes but not for breakfast actually – I love them for snacks! I’m an always oatmeal kind of girl in the morning!

  • nancy January 22, 2012, 9:09 pm

    LOVE plain nonfat greek yogurt mixed with walnuts, flax, Ezekial cereal, banana and blueberries covered in a huge amount of cinnamon. Mmmmmmmmmmm 🙂

  • ritika January 23, 2012, 3:48 am

    hey i am not sure it’s just in here but, grannies in india say, we got to avoid sesame during pregnancy… also, papaya and pineapple, i don’t know the source but everyone says so.
    you might just wanna check.

  • Anna January 23, 2012, 7:34 am

    My FAVORITE combination (and #2 breakfast – oatmeal still wins) is Fage 0& Greek Yogurt, banana, walnuts, and wheat berries. So good.

  • Life's a Bowl January 23, 2012, 9:44 am

    Love yogurt bowls! My fave is… Greek yogurt + splash of Silk Light Vanilla soy milk + cinnamon + cereal + a crumbled VitaTop [or something fluffy] + sliced banana 😀 Banana bread in a bowl!
