Made in Canada & Please Come to Canada

Hey all! Have you been enjoying a wonderful day? Mine’s been good! A tasty breakfast always helps things along. IMG_0968

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Old Wessex 5 Grain Oats
  • cinnamon
  • blueberries (with melted apple cinnamon honey)
  • kefir IMG_0967

No meeting to help move the morning along today, but it ended up doing pretty well on its own. I tried another (new to me)bar before the gym today: IMG_0970

This was awesome!! WOW! I didn’t see any banana listed in the ingredients, but it tasted like a chocolate banana treat to me! IMG_0974

And I liked to see this on the packaging, too: IMG_0973

BAM! I’ll be buying this gem again for sure. Thanks Jessica!

I huffed through a nice fast paced incline walk at the gym today. My speed was 4mph and the incline was at 7%.

Lunch came in 3 parts today. I started out with a strawberry Chobani topped with granola. IMG_0975 IMG_0976

About an hour later I ate some almonds; IMG_0977

And another hour later came a great tasting apple. IMG_0978

I wish I knew what type of apple this was because I really liked it. Usually the little sticker will say, but this one didn’t…of course! HA!

The fam had taco pasta tonight so I pulled out a Kashi Harvest Bake that I bought at Wegman’s. IMG_0979

I really wish Kashi would get a move on and start selling more products….like this one….in Canada! I love this meal!!! I would typically bulk this up with steamed vegetables, but I realized while digging into the freezer that we’re all out. After some humming and hawing I decided to toast an Ezekiel English muffin as a side “filler”. IMG_0980

Perfect!!! I just brewed a mug of coffee which will be my sweet end. It’s tiramisu flavoured and mixed with a little agave and USVAB makes it taste awesome.

Anybody up to no good this weekend???

Bye for now!!


  1. That Kashi meal looks fabulous! I will totally be keeping an eye out for that one. Great job (as per usual) on the workout. Weekend = teaching, having friends over for dinner Saturday, blogger brunch on Sunday!!

  2. Looks like Jessica spoiled you good! Haha! I've never tried Kashi meals but they always look so good!

  3. Hey Krista! Thanks for the note on my blog.

    I make my oats with: 1/3 cup oats, 1/3 cup milk, and 1/3 cup water + 1/2 banana stirred in while cooking - they turn out perfectly every time.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Mmm I just love the way your blueberries look in your breakfast bowl! So plump and juicy!
    And I have never tried that Kashi dish, it looks great! I can't get enough of the Ezekiel english muffins either! They're so much denser and more filling than any other brand.
    I don't have any major plans this weekend. I hope you have a great night Krista!!

  5. The Kashi meal looks great!

    Have a great weekend! No exciting plans here... :)

  6. I love that entree too! For frozen meals though, I have a trick - while it's still completely frozen (straight out of the freezer), I "lift" the entire meal out of the tray it's in (it just pops right out) and put it on a real plate -- microwave and voila; the dish comes out totally neat and restaurant-looking!

  7. your 3 course of lunch sounds fun to me... during spring/summer days, all I want is fresh food!
    tiramisu flvored coffee? really? that would be my kind of coffee!! hahaha.... which brand is that? would you post a picture of it?

  8. It's always nice to see anything that is made in either Canada or the US instead of overseas. Even better when things are made right in your area--yay for local!

  9. i remember having that kashi meal and thinking it was so sweet! but i'm not a sweet savory person so that's probably why...glad you liked it though!

  10. I'd love it if Kashi expanded their product range in Canada. I'd definately try things.

    Glad the bar was good Krista! HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

  11. that's too funny it tasted like nanner, but didnt have any in it ;)

    tonight im going to a potluck with my friends.. should be fun!

  12. That bar looks SOOO good! Yum!! I assume it has nuts in it? That apple looks like a "Pink Lady" to me! I'm hanging out at home this weekend, hoping to play with my new lens! Have a fabulous weekend, Krista!!

  13. Kashi meals are one of my favorite frozen go-to meals, and that kind looks delicious! The granola on your yogurt looks delicious! I hope you're having a great weekend, Krista!

  14. thanks for your kind comment to me and sorry there have been some commenting glitches lately but you're awesome for keeping on trying!

    enjoy your trip, and your coffee :)

  15. Kashi is so slow at bringing their products up here. I actually don't expect to ever see the full range in Canada, mostly due to labelling costs (since they have to redo all their packaging in French & English).

    What I'd really like to see is some Canadian companies create some innovative products themselves, so we don't feel the need to get all these things from the States. But our market just isn't as lucrative.

    Wow...didn't mean to go on a little rant there. LOL.


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
