Bob’s your uncle – giveaway!
helloooo! and happy humpday!
Yesterday was a good day! It started off with a lovely bowl of oats 🙂 Haven’t had one in a while and it was good to be back! I returned to my raw maranatha almond butter and devoured every bite. Can’t get any better than a hot bowl of oatmeal.
For lunch I went home and was in the mood for eggs. I made a breakfast scramble of 2 eggs, morningstar sausage patty, sauteed onions, black beans, and a little sprinkle of cumin. I heated up a TJs ww tortilla and had it on the side. Of course I couldn’t eat my eggs without dousing it with some Franks red hot 🙂 and some grapes on the side.
Oh, and I also had one of Jasmine’s homemade granola bars for a snack… didn’t snap a pic, I was too in love with it haha.
When I got home from work I had 2 dates with some maranatha as a little fuel to get me going and I went on a 3 mile run. I was planning on going to Bikram again but my hamstrings were so sore from the night before so I decided to switch on and off with running and bikram. Running loosened up my legs nicely, and I got back just in time before the storm came.
For dinner I made a smoothie with kale, TJs frozen fruit (mangos, blueberries, raspberries) half a canned peach and some almond milk. I also threw a scoop of protein powder in there and it turned out thick like a milkshake.
Then I decided I wanted to make snobby joesss! I split the recipe in half and saved the other half of what I made for lunch today. These are so so good. Next up on my list is to make beanballs, and falafels.
This morning came quickly and I threw together a bowl of cereal. Kashi H2H with a small sliced banana and a newbie ingredient. Hulled hemp seed from Bob’s Red Mill. I’ve never tried this before but was excited to test it out.
Here’s the description on the back of the bag
“Hemp Seed may be one of nature’s most perfect foods. With a pleasant nut-like flavor and creamy texture, our hulled hemp seed is a nutritious and delightful addition to cereals, salads, and baked goods. Hulled hemp seed is high in Omega-3 and Omega-6 essential fatty acids and an excellent source of protein, containing all of the essential amino acids.”
It was a light flavor that I hardly noticed but I felt the extra little crunch in my cereal. I really liked it and want to incorporate it into more meals for sure. Oatmeal topping? yes please! and I also found out that you can make your own hempmilk from the hulled hemp seeds so that will definitely be an experiment in the near future.
Now getting into my title of the post…. Bob’s your uncle. I used to live in England and people used to say this all the time. Here’s the wikipedia definition for ya:
Bob’s your uncle is a commonly used expression known mainly in Britain, Ireland and Commonwealth countries. It is often used immediately following a set of simple instructions and carries roughly the same meaning as the phrase “and there you have it”; for example, “Simply put a piece of ham between two slices of bread, and Bob’s your uncle.” haha random tidbit of info there for ya.
Well who i’m refering to is the people at Bob’s Red Mill. They were so generous to send me a package of some of their goodies! The hulled hemp seed being one of them, some organic whole grain quinoa, organic whole grain steel cut oats, organic 7 grain pancake and waffle mix, and some muesli. I LOVE this company so much and they have so much to offer. I can’t wait to try out all of these other products!
They also went out of their way to be so generous and offer a giveaway to 4 lucky readers. yes 4 of you! 🙂 4 winners will each receive a bag of their organic steel cut oats!
Here’s the difference between steel cut oats vs regular rolled oats:
All you have to do is post a comment telling me your favorite oatmeal combo and you’re in the drawing! For an additional entry you can link back to the giveaway in your blog. Good luck 🙂 I’ll post the winners at 4 PM EST on Friday!
I’ve only ever made steel cut oats once, and I didn’t do a very good job. They turned out extremely dry. I have been told that making steel cut oats overnight is the best way since they take a while to make. Does anyone have any tips for me? I can’t wait to try them!
Have a wonderful day loves!!!
