Michelle, my best friend from New York, also met up with us. And the two of them bonded immediately…over funny stories about me. Shocking.
Can you guess which fro yo mixture was mine?
Which one is Sometimes Healthy Girl's
I may or may not received a couple of “You’re not going to eat all of that” looks from other customers. But I just turned my nose. In a land of 16 flavors and endless choices of delicious toppings, you must always go big or go home. Plus, in typical Sometimes Healthy fashion, this was sort of my dinner…oops. Sorry for partying.
But Back to the Oats
But let’s get back to the “his and her OIAJ.” Of course, one of the main topics of our fro yo convo was my dear old blog. As I detailed to Emily anything and everything that I write about, I noticed her face scrunch up in disgust as I described the concept of Overnight Oats in a Jar and how I made this incredible concoction for the first time last week. Apparently, Emily doesn’t understand nor appreciate the idea of cold oatmeal. “But it’s amazing!,” I said. “All you do is throw some stuff in a jar, put it in the fridge and BOOM, a nutritious breakfast.”
She still wasn’t convinced.
So, like the diligent little blogger that I am, I insisted on making her some Overnight OIAJ for breakfast this morning. Unfortunately, I didn’t have two empty jars of PB. So, I used an empty jar of jelly. Why not? I threw about 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of oats, 1 tbsp of PB, raisins and mashed bananas in both jars.
This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship
This morning, they came out looking creamy and delicious. I couldn’t WAIT for Emily to try this baby! It took a bit of coaxing for me to get her to dip that spoon into the jar. I was sure she would have her best friend to thank for a new favorite breakfast!
PB & J OIAJ and Sunshine. A winning combo
Sadly, I was wrong. One bite and she was done. She switched to regular, boring ol’ oatmeal.
Emily, you're missin' out with that boring bowl of oatmeal!
Well, guess you can’t win them all Once I finish this post and my OIAJ, Emily and I are going to run through Central Park to the Today Show to watch it live for a bit. Then, we’re going to play in the city ALL day.
Blogging and OIAJ = happiness
It’s a holiday: Bring Your Best Friend to New York Day. Therefore, I am playing hooky…okay not really, I took an approved vacation day – you know I’m not that crazy! Have a great Thursday – we’re almost to the holiday!
Do you have a tough time convincing your significant others/best friend to like your weird/wacky healthy creations? What are some of the foods they absolutely will not try/enjoy?
