I don’t know how it is in your area, but in beginning to FEEL a lot like Christmas in mine…in other words, BRRRRR!
I have spent the majority of this morning happily internet browsing in bed, underneath my nice warm heated blanket. If you don’t have a heated blanket, GET ONE! They will change your life. 😉
Snuggies don’t have nothin’ on heated blankies!
I did, however, rise out of bed at one point for what other than…
Oats in a jar. 🙂
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup oatbran
- 1/4 cup old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 cups of water
- 1/2 smashed banana
- vanilla extract
- ridiculous amounts of nut butter 😉
So as the title of this post states, I am feeling the holiday love. 😀 One thing that is missing in my house though, is the Christmas music…and that is where I need your help!
What is your favorite Christmas album?
What is your all time favorite Christmas song?
A little Rudolph, perhaps?
Or maybe you prefer some decking of the halls?
Me, I love it ALL. But I have been known to belt out some Jingle Bell Rock lovin’.
I recently received a wonderful package in the mail, courtesy of NuNaturals:
NuNaturals graciously sent me some of their products since I have been dying to them after repeatedly seeing them around the blog world.
They also sent me an abundance of recipes that I will be diving into in the near future!
I decided to make a little smoothie action to test out the first of the products:
Into the blended went:
- 1 cup Almond Breeze
- 1 packet NuNaturals Stevia
- 1 banana
- a few strawberries
- vanilla extract
I wanted to keep it simple so I could really taste the Stevia.
It LOOKS pretty…but how did it TASTE?
Delicious! I have used stevia before, but it always had a bit of an aftertaste that I didn’t love. Well NuNatural’s stevia did not have any aftertaste that I could pick up…just sweet and delicious flavor, without any sugar or artificial sweetener. Just the way I like it! I can’t wait to try out the rest of the loot. Thanks so much Ron!
Even though it’s cold outside doesn’t mean I don’t still like my smoothies!
Tonight we on the agenda is the following:
- Get Christmas tree!!!
- make Fitnessista’s Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili
- watch Elf
Sounds like a pretty spankin’ good time to me. 😀
