Breakfast this morning was quick and easy Vegan Overnight Oats. Last night, I mixed 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup almond milk, and 1 Tbsp of chia seeds in a bowl and let it sit in the fridge over night. This morning, I topped it with 1/2 a sliced banana, a handful of blueberries, a small handful of Kashi Go Lean for “crunch”, a small spoonful of peanut butter, and a small spoonful of coconut butter. Of course, the “butters” MADE this meal. Just leave me alone with a jar of coconut butter and shut the door on your way out, ok? 😉
I’m not sure if Kashi Go Lean is vegan, but I am hoping it is, because I always feel a sense of righteousness when I eat a vegan meal. Alicia Silverstone would be proud.
Yesterday, while I was on the phone at work, a coworker handed me a MAC lipstick and eyeshadow. I never had the chance to properly thank her, but I am thinking they were “free gifts with purchase”. She is a very generous coworker, but still, a very random gift! I tried the MAC lipstick this morning and I have to say I know why people are such MAC-lovers. Everything from the texture of the lipstick gliding on to the weight of the actual tube is so much more luxurious than my cheapo Cover Girl or Maybelline. The bonus to this is that the colour is perfect. When does that EVER happen? I like to think that the frugal gods are looking down on me, helping me out, one free lipstick at a time.
Is it time to go home yet?
