Morning { 5 } Friday Start

by Healthy Diva on September 2, 2011


Good Morning!

Love that you guys really love the diva approved posts, it was just a little idea I had a few weeks back, and Im glad I thought of it, a lot of you are finding new things to try! Thanks for the feedback!

Im so happy it’s Friday , well except for the HUGE packing party that will be going down, due to the move!

It will all get done!

There were  5 things that started off my Friday……

1. This little future Chris Brown missed the bus today, so I was awaken out of bed and had to drive his dancing booty to school

2. I got to see the beautiful sun coming up and shining, that made my crabby mood go away  :-D

3. McDOnald’s Coffee for the win , I actually love their coffee and figured since Im out, might as well get some

4. Lovegrown Granola can be a fabulous way to start any day

I see you little granola chunk  creeping out  :-D

5. A pumpkin oatmeal pancake makes Friday breakfast a winner  :-D

Glad I had breakfast prepared for this morning  8-O

Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancake

1/2 cup oats

2 tbsp pumpkin

1/2 cup almond milk

1 packet of stevia

pinch of cinnamon and pumpkin spice

1 tbsp flaxseeds

Mix all ingredients together and cook on the skillet

* this was a little hard to keep together, the pumpkin I think made it that way, just a warning!

Topped with Sunwarrior Protein Frosting, Lovegrown Apple Pecan, and Maple Syrup

A crazy start to my day but now its better  :-D

Mike and I have to get my car from the shop, so Im running out the door!

How did your Friday morning start off?! Highlight so far?

Mine was the sunshine and coffee  :-D

Be back soon!

Katie xoxo

Mmm…amazing breakfast (your pancake looks so delicious, girl!) and beautiful sunset! <3 So glad you got to have your fave coffee to make the early start better ;-) The highlight of my morning has been waking up to make breakfast with my man, having a wicked lower body workout, and reading some wonderful comments on my blog….the blog community makes my heart happy! :-D

Your morning sounds beautiful : ) hope the rest of your day is just as beautiful! xoxo

I said the same thing about McDonalds coffee on my blog yesterday! Love it!! <3


9 Healthy Diva September 3, 2011 at 7:24 am

So funny! It is great coffee!!! My mom used to drink it everyday before there was starbucks, thats how I first started loving it, that was SO long ago! haha!


10 Amanda @ Running with Spoons September 2, 2011 at 9:45 am

I have no idea what it is, but McD’s really does make some of the tastiest things. Their coffee. Their fries. Their chicken nuggets. Their ice cream… I think they add crack or something ;)

My Friday has been anything BUT amazing so far, but surprisingly, I feel awesome lol. I woke up super early (uhm… hello 4:30 AM :shock: ), the weather is cooooooold and wet, and I have a bunch of work that needs to get done. But I’m still smiling, so hooray :D



11 Healthy Diva September 3, 2011 at 7:24 am

That is a early start! I thought I woke up early!

McDonalds chicken nuggets and sweet n sour sauce rock! My fave , and their Shamrock Shake that they have in March, best shake EVER! I love it!!!

Happy Weekend love! Hope you get a lot done for the move! xoxo <3

My Friday morning has been great! It has been crazy busy but all that is over now! The best part of my day has been getting in a great strength workout early this am! I”m glad its over!


13 Healthy Diva September 3, 2011 at 7:22 am

Woot Woot for a great workout!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! xoxo


14 Sara @ Nourish and Flourish September 2, 2011 at 2:58 pm

Mmm, I’m loving the return of pumpkin in recipes! We’ve both been on pancake kicks lately! I think blending the oats helps…It creates more of a flour-like substance that holds everything together. That’s what I did with the banana macadamia pancakes I made recently, and it worked quite nicely!

Haha, great pic of Anthony! He’s totally going to be a rockstar (just like his mama!) :-p

Hope you’re having a beautiful Friday, love!! Good luck packing! xoxoxo <3


15 Healthy Diva September 3, 2011 at 7:18 am

I know, we have been , loved yours!!!! Yeah maybe I will do that next time, good idea! It was falling apart so bad : p

Anthony believes that he is a rockstar, lol, so funny! Love him!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and hope the movie was good! Love you! xoxo

my morning started a little too early for me for a Friday haha but coffee and good eats all day long sure has helped and knowing that I am going to be seeing my baby tomorrow makes it all better :)


17 Healthy Diva September 3, 2011 at 7:15 am

YAY for seeing your baby tomorrow ; ) Hope you girls both have a happy holiday weekend!! xoxo

Chris Brown maybe isn’t the best role model for a young boy…


19 Healthy Diva September 4, 2011 at 7:34 am

I agree, I am a fan of Chris Brown’s music and his dancing, as is my son, Anthony has no idea what Chris Brown even did, he is a young child and if he wants to dance like chris brown , there is nothing wrong with that, thank you for the comment though, I appreciate it, and like I said, yes Chris Brown is a bad person for what he did, but Im not going to tell my son he can not watch his music video to or listen to his music.
