Naptime in the A.M.

Thursday, August 27, 2009

Yes, I took a NAP this morning! Totally not mormal for me at all. I usually can never fall asleep during the day when I actually want to, I just feel like my body always has to be awake during the day. But this morning was different! I ate some breakfast and then went downstairs to snuggle up on the couch and then you know it 2 hours had past! Whoops, well I guess I was a bit sleepy. Maybe going to bed last night at midnight and not being able to fall asleep did not really help all that much :/ But now I am fully awake and ready for the day :)

For breakfast I had a yogurt mess. It was OKAY. Can you believe I said my yogurt mess was just okay?! Well the only reason I say it was okay was because the peanut butter did not go with the yogurt mess at all! I used Naturally More peanut butter, I tried this peanut butter in my breakfast cookie yesterday and it tasted fine because it was mixed together with the oats and banana so I couldn't really get the full taste of it. But today I put it on top of my yogurt mess to really be able to taste the peanut butter, and blah! It was definitely not my favorite peanut butter and I don't think I will be using it in the near future, perhaps I will try out the other flavors some day.

The Naturally More peanut butter contains flax seed and flax oil, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, wheat germ, and egg whites. So overall it is a very nutritional peanut butter but I just did not like the overall taste to it. The naturally More peanut butter had oil seperation so it had to be stirred. I am not a big fan of oil on the top of my peanut butter. Though the oil separation was much less noticeable compared to other natural peanut butters with seperation. The texture of the peanut butter was very "grainy" and I could definitely taste the flax seeds. I feel as though this peanut butter was very bland and it didn't seem like I was eating peanut butter. I like my peanut butter to be tasty, creamy, and smooth and I really like the real peanut butter taste!
My yogurt mess!
After my 2 hour nap I woke up and it was already time for a snack! So I showered first and then had a Nature Valley Fruit & Nut Bar with a Strawberry Boost outside on the screen porch!
Last night I went to the store to pick up some milk and came home with a bunch of other goodies!

Milk, Oikos yogurt, PB & Co. Smooth Operator peanut butter (for school!), Luna Bars, and a Clif Bar.

I bought these two Luna Bars to try out!

I love napping! It's so relaxing and just cozy!

Hope your yogurt mess is better tomorrow! I actually ADORE Naturally More - but I totally agree, it's not very peanutty - so I know exactly what ya mean about that. Smuckers Natural Creamy will always be my fave.

Enjoy your day - those bars are awesome!

The iced oatmeal raisin Luna bar is really good. Sort of like a big cookie!
