Ice Is Nice

I have watched many hours of ice sports on TV this weekend. It was a hockey & figure skating extravaganza! It’s making me long to get back out there myself. Oh skating, why you gotta be so expensive?

I started my Sunday morning…well….with very little morning left. Oops! Breakfast basically turned into lunch.

I went with a bowl of Matcha Green Tea Goji Oatmeal.

  • 1/3 cup oats, almond milk, water
  • 1 tbsp Ruth’s Chia Goodness cereal
  • 1 tbsp dried goji berries
  • 3/4 tsp matcha powder
  • Artisana Coconut Butter
  • sliced almonds

And a glass of cranberry pomegranate juice.

Dining on the living room rug? Nah, it was just for photography purposes 😉

After enjoy breakfast, figure skating, and catching up on blogging, I made my way outside for a walk with my mom. We only had to endure a short rain storm, and made it home relatively dry. I was needing a little snack by then – bring on the yogurt mess!

Plain, non-fat yogurt, quince compote, pomegranate seeds, and the end of a jar of macadamia nut butter.

Oh, how I’d forgotten how amazing that macadamia nut butter is. I may have to break down and shell out the dough for a new jar one day soon.

Then I had a date with Jillian Michaels and her No More Trouble Zones. I just needed to get some serious sweat on. By the time I was done that, dinner was on the table.

Starting with a wee pour of red wine, leftover from my parent’s social evening last night.

We had baked pork chops with stuffing.

A baked potato with sour cream, a little bit of buttah, and pepper.

And steamed asparagus.

Fun Sunday night dinner.

I followed dinner with a (blurry) piece of dark chocolate.

Then it was time to watch hockey, be disappointed in my team’s loss, and watch the rest of the skating I had taped. So good – I’m excited for Canada’s chances for some figure skating hardware at the Olympics.

Snacky hunger came a calling, and I answered with a piece of cinnamon toastSilver Hills Squirrelly bread, buttah, brown sugar, and a crap ton of cinnamon.

Plus a mug of Stash Decaf Vanilla Creme Nut tea with almond milk.

Cinnamon toast totally reminds me of being a kid.

And now my mom is watching the skating I taped, so I’m going to go enjoy it again – it was just that good! Night!

    I love cinnamon toast too, it was one of the only breakfasts my mom could successfully force me to eat before school.

    I love watching figure skating, but I was at the hockey rink 3 days in a row! Guess I got my ice in this weekend, too!!

    I was watching Skate Canada all weekend, looking forward to the Grand Prix final. Figure Skating > all other winter sports (actually most sports in general). Not that I don’t love me some good skiing of course.

    Your food looks divine, especially that oatmeal and then the cinnamon toast. Mmmm, cinnamon and butter on bread is one of the best things. I grew up a few miles from one of the biggest fairs in the country…so cinnamon sugar elephant ears were common, though when I make them at home I don’t deep fry them.

    I must know how the Jillian Michael’s No More Trouble Zones is. I have been meaning to try it but do not know if it is worth the money.

    Great food 🙂
