Yoga Fail, Granola Experiment and Buffalo Jerky Giveaway

 

Wednesday Workout:

Elliptical 60 minutes at home while catching up with my friends Kelly and Michael

 

So, um, yeah, I’m so darn anxious to get back into running. I’m not letting myself run for a couple more days though. I think Sunday might be the day where I experiment with running a couple slow miles. We shall see.

Yesterday we attempted a little pre dinner yoga/stretching session, but that didn’t turn out so well.

IMG_1558IMG_1570

Yeah, either did our picture taking.

 

You know what did work out well though? Some kitchen experiments.

My coffee creation of the morning is this today.

IMG_1581

A new little “STUFT” twist on the café Americano. I posted it on instagram, but here’s what I did: I brewed my Starbucks espresso with my stovetop espresso maker added a little coconut oil (1/2 teaspoon), cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar free hazelnut syrup and then more hot water.

Pretty good. Even better in that mug. He he. I think it might be my new thing if I’m not in the mood for my usual mocha.

Okay, so I’ve admitted in the past I have a little moderation problem when it comes to Love Grown Foods granola. Particularly the Cocoa Goodness.

Come to think of it I really have a problem with all cereals. Who the heck can have just one serving? It’s too easy to fill up your bowl again, isn’t it?

Anyhoo……

I attempted to make a single serving of my own little granola type clusters. They didn’t come out too shabby so I thought I’d share.

It’s kind of a mix between coconut cookie dough crumble, protein cookie dough crumble, and the healthy oatmeal cookie. Pretty much just all sorts of goodness in one and I even added a little of that psyllium husk in there just for fun.

 

Here you go.

 

Here’s some shots of the process.

IMG_8071IMG_8073IMG_8077IMG_8080

Look at this cute little protein cluster.

IMG_8081

Don’t you just want to pop it in your mouth?

Or make a big mess and add some to protein cake batter ice cream?

Smile

 

And……. since I promised a giveaway, I have a little something for you.

 

Things have been quite over here because I’ve been busting my bootie with taxes and working on getting things set up so we can sell our buffalo jerky here on the blog.

Yeah, that’s right, we have our own buffalo jerky. Who knew?

 

Not only is it delicious, but it’s good for you too.

You know, high in protein, 99% fat free, no preservatives, etc..

IMG_8093IMG_8091

Good stuff.

I want to give some to you.

GIVEAWAY TIME!

Two winners will get 3 of our 1 oz. packs of buffalo jerky.

IMG_8094

 

Just leave me a comment here telling me your favorite type or flavor of jerky. Just because I’m curious.

Or you can tell me if you too have a moderation problem with granola or cereal. Then I won’t feel as bad. Ha.

 

*Giveaway open to US residents only.

I’ll choose a winner Saturday night at 8 pm PST and announce in Sunday morning’s post.

    Teresa M. says:

    I can’t have any kind of cereal that I like in the house. I would eat the whole box in a day or 2. It’s a real problem. I feel like cereal just doesn’t fill me, and I always want more.

  9. 9

    My favorites are black pepper or teryaki! I’m part Japanese so the teryaki flavor should come as no surprise.

    Congrats on the business venture with the buffalo jerky!

  10. 10
    Anna says:

    I would LOVE to try some of the jerky! Jerky is a favorite in our house and buffalo would make it more lean. I have a huge cereal problem as in I can finish a whole box in a day. I can just zone out and stuff my face. Its a problem.

Granola bars are something I can’t keep in the house because ill eat the whole box just opening one and Munching on part of it until its all gone. Hope I win buffalo jerky :)

    Any and all kinds of jerky. Perfect salty snack after working out!

  26. 26

    I have only ever had beef jerky, so trying venison would be awesome! I’d have to go with the regular black pepper flavor as my fave.
    Cereal moderation is unheard of in my household… I mean, who eats 3/4 cup of anything? Let alone crunchy goodness?!
    Good luck on your trial run on Sunday!

    I have a huge problem with granola moderation! I make a batch of it every week and its all I can do to not eat more than 2 or 3 servings a day. I recently tried the buffalo jerky from TJ’s and was surprised how tasty it was.

  35. 35
    Emily says:

    Amy says:

Is it for sale online? Oh…yes I do have a major problem with good granola and cereal it just calls my name :)

  65. 65

    Oh the HUBS would love some jerky! It would be nice of me to win something of him! Pinned your granola recipe and going to make some

  66. 66
    LK says:

    I have never had jerky but why not buffalo?!?!? Also, do you plan for “rest days”? I have a really hard time letting myself actually take a day off without doing something! (ie long walk, pure barre, etc) without feeling anxious.

  67. 67
    Chelsea says:

    Ugh, cereal obsessed sister right here! I have to eat it and think of it as dessert, otherwise I feel like I could easily down at entire box, especially if it’s chocolate or has marshmallows in it :) I’m all about the black pepper jerky, the spicier the better :)

  68. 68
    Deb E. says:

    Buffalo jerky was pretty popular around the house when I lived in Colorado. Now I just add the smoke flavoring to my soups and pretend!! Love your oats recipe. I use a protein powder/coconut four/ instant oat mix too. I just don’t bother to bake it. I know, ugh.. Coffee washes it right down though! Good luck with the jerky venture.

  69. 69
    Abbi says:

    Hello!!

    I can definitely relate to your cereal addiction!! I ate an entire box of cereal in one day (not proud of it). My excuse? Your last semester of college is more stressful than anyone can imagine!!!! Maybe if I win your giveaway it will distract me from the cereal for a while ;)
    Your jerky looks amazing! Would love to try it! My favorite kind is teriyaki, but really, any jerky is so tasty!

    We love the Ostim Jerky in terryakki flavor for store bought & home made caribou or moose when we have time to make our own but yours looks way better (we don’t have cool packaging- it’s a ziplock Baggie around here) :)

    I have to say my husband’s homemade jerky is the best-he uses a black pepper seasoning.

    Moderation and cereal SHOULD NOT be in the same sentence!!! ;) It just doesn’t happen…….

    I’ve recently tried and started liking Turkey Jerky after reading a post by SR. I always ate beef jerky before that.

    Ashley Laliberte says:

    Generally in our house we eat Cattaneo Brothers peppered jerky. However, I must share that the best jerky I have ever eaten was Marlin jerky! During two trips to Hawaii (Maui & Kauaii) we had Marlin jerky and it is absolutely amazing! If your ever in Hawaii you must pick some up!
    Jerky is our families favorite snack, and we would love to try your buffalo jerky too!

    maggie says:

    OH MY GOSH, I am so excited about your buffalo jerky! 1. I am obsessed with buffalo (both eating them, and I just think they’re so adorable) 2. I am obsessed with jerky, but it’s so expensive! I keep buying new kinds that just aren’t worth the money, and then I’m stuck with the whole bag – I’d love to try yours first! my favorite flavor is anything peppery, soy-saucey, teriyaki-y. yum :)

    Christy says:

    I am a weirdo and like any non spicy jerky. In the summer I really crave it. Looooove jerky.

    Emily says:

    Teriyaki is my favorite! I haven’t had it in so long! I’ve never had buffalo before!

  84. 84

    Sweet & spicy, but probably more spicy. Then I’m less likely to have to share with the fam bam. No shame in my game, I love my jerky. ;)

  85. 85
    Krissi Vanderpool says:

    I love sweet and hot jerky! I love your blog!

    I have a moderation problem with cereal. Love it so much. I only allow myself to eat it on weekends because it is too easy to go overboard. Would love to try the Buffalo Jerky. Thank you.

    Susan Nutter says:

    I kind of favor spicy jerky if I can find it. And I am a cereal addict, so don’t feel bad. I hope I never have a gluten issue. I’d be very sad…ds

    Lauren says:

    I’ve never had buffalo jerky! It sounds great though. I do love a buffalo burger. I enjoy regular old “original” or “plain” jerky and teriyaki the most.

  92. 92

    My favorite is teriyaki, mainly ’cause I’m a total baby about hot stuff and teriyaki is always safe.

    April says:

    Ok. So funny… So I have a moderation problem with JERKY. I have always said, if I could only have one food for the rest of my life, it would be jerky( take out of the equation the unhealthiness of that and just factor in yumminess- oh and the fact that my jaw would be 10x bigger). Hmm… Ya. My favorite flavor is teriyaki. Hands down, although if I could only eat jerky I would need some variety. :-)

    I personally am not a fan of jerky, but my husband loves it. His favorite is teriyaki flavored- usually turkey jerky.

    Jordan D. says:

    I haven’t actually tried real meat jerky…I’ve only ever had this vegan brand my friend had made from seitan. I really liked the teriyaki flavor. I’ve had buffalo meat before and loved it, so I’m pumped about this giveaway!

    kerry says:

    teriyaki is the best flavor!

  102. 102
    Missy says:

    I definitely have a cereal moderation problem. My only consolation is the fact that they have shrunk the boxes by about 8-10 ounces over the years! 9 ounce box of cereal? That’s pushing to get 2 bowls out of it!!

    I like peppered jerky! Any is fine just not real sweet

  103. 103
    Susan Lynch says:

    I love jerky it’s one of my favorite go to / on the go snacks. I like all flavors normally but prefer spicy ones! Can’t wait to try some buffalo jerky, it sounds awesome!
