Hope everyone is partying it up because it is Friday!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I just wanted to say thank you for all the positive feedback I got from my last post. It’s nice to know I’m not the only indecisive one out there. It’s such a terrible trait that I have which I’m definitely trying to work on everyday. You guys are such an inspiration, love you all! ๐Ÿ˜€

In case you wondering the recipe for my cheesecake froyo I posted it here (let me know if you make it!)

I started off the day with a fantastic workout consisting of:

  • Leg presses: 5 reps with 220 lbs
  • Push ups: 15
  • Step ups: 8 reps with 20 lb dumbbells in each hand
  • Lat pulldowns
  • Hyperextensions
  • Cable Crunches
  • Wood Choppers

I love my weight lifting days, gives me so much energy throughout the day.

After I got my muscles pumping I was ready to give them some major fuel ๐Ÿ˜‰

Breakfast was as follows:

Chocolate Nanner Oats

I made them stove top today ๐Ÿ˜‰

In the mix: 1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup water, cocoa powder, cinnamon, 9g chia seeds,1/4 nanner

Topped with: 1/4 nanner, peanuts, cinnamon raisin pb, apricot jam, and organic bunny graham crackers!!



As soon as I saw these I knew they had to be in my possession. They were so yummy! And only 130 calories for 30 grams. Perfect finish to my oats ๐Ÿ™‚





Lunch was a simple but delicious Egg McMuffin ๐Ÿ˜‰ Watch out McDonalds!!


If you were wondering about the title of my post it was because of these oats that I made the other day

My fabulous pumpkin pie oats

Mmmm yummm ๐Ÿ˜€

Battle of the oats!

  • Which do you prefer? Pumpkin oats or Banana?

(Nanners will always be my number 1 choice ;))

    I have never tried pumpkin oats. I’m still forever yoked to my banana oats! Maybe I can cheat and sneak a little pumpkin in there sometime. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 2. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:00 pm

      Banana and pumpkin are a great combo ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 3. This Italian Family  |  03/25/2011 at 2:25 pm

    Ooh I love egg mcmuffins at home! I totally make these too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 4. Colleen @ The Lunchbox Diaries  |  03/25/2011 at 2:44 pm

    I’ve had egg sandwiches on mind since I had one last weekend! And for the oats? My vote is with banana! Have a great weekend, girl!! xoxo

    • 5. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:01 pm

      Always a winner with banana ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 6. Cara @ Chic Meets Healthy  |  03/25/2011 at 2:49 pm

    I love making pumpkin pie oats and yours looks amaazing!!

    I always buy the cheddar bunnies for our snacks! So much better for you than the goldfish!

    • 7. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:01 pm

      Cheddar bunnies? I have to look for those!

  • 8. Sophia @ Raven Waves  |  03/25/2011 at 3:06 pm

    Definitely nanners!! Happy Friday to you too! Have a fun weekend!

  • 9. Ellie  |  03/25/2011 at 3:28 pm

    Ohhhh such a hard question! I’ll go with nanners!! but then the TREAT of punkin ones are awesome from time to time.

  • 10. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  03/25/2011 at 3:53 pm

    I would go with pumpkin-only because I’m addicted to pumpkin. Both are seriously nom though! YUMMOOO.

  • 11. Shanna, like Banana  |  03/25/2011 at 4:09 pm

    Gotta go with pumpkin on this one Jenny. Anything pumpkin trumps bananas in my world ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 12. Kate (What Kate is Cooking)  |  03/25/2011 at 4:20 pm

    Pumpkin is my favorite food, so I will always choose pumpkin oats ๐Ÿ™‚ I do love bananas in my oats though!

  • 13. Faith @ lovelyascharged  |  03/25/2011 at 4:28 pm

    Of the two, I’d have to choose banana, but I’m a sucker for oats with chocolate and berries in them!

    • 14. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:02 pm

      I still haven’t really added berries to mine. Gotta do that ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 15. Maryann (The Balanced Bean)  |  03/25/2011 at 4:45 pm

    I think I prefer banana, although I LOVE the volume that pumpkin adds to oats!

    • 16. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:32 pm

      I think banana adds volume haha I might just be biased ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 17. Alexa @ Simple Eats  |  03/25/2011 at 5:26 pm

    Your oats always look delish. I can’t eat a whole bowl of oats, idk what it is, I always crave something salty after. I could definitely take a few tips from you, though!

    • 18. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:33 pm

      Haha I would definitely make you oats anytime ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 19. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  03/25/2011 at 6:37 pm

    Both! I love all kinds of oats with banana but pumpkin oats will always hold a place in my heart. Might as well combine them. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • 20. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:33 pm

      Things are always better in pairs ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 21. Christina @ Food.Fun.Fabulous.  |  03/25/2011 at 6:38 pm

    i love pumpkin oats but banana will always have my heart ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 22. movesnmunchies  |  03/25/2011 at 6:57 pm

    ooo banana wins for me!! but pumpking gives such a creamier texture!! doesnt matter for you though-yours are always DELICIOUS!

    • 23. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:34 pm

      Thank you Carrie! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 24. paijery  |  03/25/2011 at 7:54 pm

    Hahaa I love that little guy dancin!
    Banana always wins for me! I have actually never tried pumpkin in my oats!
    What is in your egg mcmuffin??

    • 25. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:34 pm

      It’s an english muffin with an egg over easy and a turkey sausage patty! Gah so good ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 26. Christina  |  03/25/2011 at 11:18 pm

    Banana, apple or blueberry oatmeal are my favorite oatmeal flavors. I usually have oatmeal for breakfast everyday…i will have to give your pumpkin oats a try! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • 27. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:35 pm

      I haven’t done blueberry oats in awhile. Gotta give that a go again ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 28. paoang  |  03/26/2011 at 12:24 am

    AHHH so hard! Hmm…what about pum[kin AND banana?! Would that work out? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • 34. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:36 pm

  • 35. Gina  |  03/26/2011 at 12:43 pm

    Tough call! I love pumpkin oats when TJ’s pumpkin butter is on shelves (sooo good), but the banana is great all year round!

    • 36. Jenny  |  03/26/2011 at 7:37 pm

      I need to find pumpkin butter. I’ve never tried it ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • 37. Megan @ oatmealwithsprinkles  |  03/26/2011 at 3:36 pm

    Oh man! Such a tough choice – I couldn’t choose! I really love both banana oats AND pumpkin oats!


  • 38. BrittFit  |  03/26/2011 at 4:37 pm

    tough call…it depends on the time of year for me…summer and spring? definitely banana

  • 39. kissmybroccoli  |  03/26/2011 at 8:25 pm

    I don’t know why, but I haven’t made pumpkin oats in forever! Since I’m out of bananas right now, I think that will be changing in the NEAR future!

    And I’m right there with you on the indecisiveness. If I’m shopping and can’t make up my mind about something, I usually give up and buy them both! Haha!

    • 40. Jenny  |  03/27/2011 at 11:09 am

      Haha that way you’re never missing out ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 41. simplynutritiouskate  |  03/27/2011 at 12:05 am

    wow your oats look amazing. I love mine loaded with almond butter, chocolate, and coconut yum!

    • 42. Jenny  |  03/27/2011 at 11:09 am

      I have yet to add coconut! =/

  • 43. Tara  |  03/27/2011 at 10:24 am

    I like both types. I feel like banana oats are more versatile and you can combine it with more flavors. I still love my pumpkin though! Actually they’re reallly good when you have pumpkin banana oats.

    • 44. Jenny  |  03/27/2011 at 11:10 am

      I love mixing them ๐Ÿ˜€

  • 45. Parita @ myinnershakti  |  03/27/2011 at 10:53 am

    Banana all the way – a little PB and chocolate is great too!

    • 46. Jenny  |  03/27/2011 at 11:10 am

      I can’t have oats without pb ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 47. leashieloo  |  03/27/2011 at 1:41 pm

    I love Annies Bunnies, I am about to get all over that flavor! I heart Annie’s in general, you’re making me want to make the mac n cheese. Blue box has nothing on it!

  • 48. mindrunningwild  |  03/27/2011 at 1:51 pm

    um yes. please to the bunny grahams. have you had the “friends” ones? THE BEST
    I like both pumpkin and banana. can’t ever choose ; )

  • 49. katshealthcorner  |  03/27/2011 at 11:26 pm

    I love pumking oats! If I want something more suttle sweet, then I go with pumpkin. If I want something that’s a little more sweet, then I go with banana. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • 50. livinglearningeating  |  07/22/2011 at 5:05 pm

    WHOA GIRL! That work out? You are fit!

    But I can’t stomach eggs – in cookies? Sure. French toast? Pushing it. But in recognizable egg form? YECH. Maybe I got an overload back when my parents used to make me eat two fried eggs a day, because they thought that vegetarian = will get kwashikor (spelling?) if not force-fed eggs ๐Ÿ˜›

    Thank goodness nut butters, yogurt, beans, tempeh, and tofu taste waaaaay better ๐Ÿ™‚ Gotta love that chobani…
