Who Replaced My Oats With Cake?!

I was up early this morning for a change! It’s amazing how when you have something you actually want to do (leave work to head out of town), your body cooperates for once and gets up on time. I was at work a whole hour early, and left a whole hour early. And I got everything done that I needed to while I was there. I’m on fire!

This morning I decided to channel my inner pasty chef and make up a breakfast based on a favourite cake of mine.

Carrot Cake Kamut Flakes!

  • 1/2 cup kamut flakes, milk, water
  • 1/2 carrot, grated
  • 1 tbsp flax seed
  • splash of vanilla
  • raisins
  • pineapple tidbits
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • walnuts
  • shredded coconut
  • coconut butter
  • drizzle of maple syrup

If only I’d had a little cream cheese to make a true “frosting”. Oh well, coconut & coconut butter is a very acceptable substitute 🙂

Check all those colours and flavours out up close!

With a glass of Happy Planet Mango Peach Party, of course.

It was pretty awesome, I must say. I lucked out that I had a little bit of pineapple left in my fridge that needed to be used up, so it was the perfect time to try it out. And it definitely seems more like you are eating cake that veggies for breakfast 🙂

My lunch pales in comparison to breakfast, mostly because it wouldn’t play nice with the camera. I grabbed a couple of slices of leftover bison sausage pizza from the freezer, made a side caesar salad, and grabbed the nectarine I didn’t eat yesterday, and some plain popcorn I found in the cupboard.

I guess the fact that the pizza is in the Ziploc bag doesn’t help it’s photogenic-ness, eh? HA! At least it tasted good!

So now, it’s 5 pm, and I need to be outta here by 6 to catch the 7 pm ferry. Things I still need to do:

  • dishes
  • take out garbage
  • pack(!)

Guess I better get on that! Hope everyone has a great weekend, and I will see you all Sunday night 😎

    That is one fully loaded and fully lovely bowl of oats going on right there. I’ve done carrot cake oats before but they weren’t nearly as much of a stunner as that. I’m all over the idea of carrot cake for breakfast.
