My { Labor } of a Day

by Healthy Diva on September 5, 2011


If you guys missed out, please check out my Negativity Post, got some really great comments from you guys and I think we should all live a positive and negative free life, AMEN!

Today has been full of Packing and I accomplished a lot

I was proud and looking like a bum, I don’t care, I have no one to impress  ;-)

*anyone else a member of the bony neck club, my neck has ALWAYS been so long and bony  8-O

Breakfast was a PUMPKIN theme today , and I loved it!

I ventured out to get my Pumpkin Coffee Fix

Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Coffee, the BEST!

I love Starbucks for the Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but can’t drink those every day, but Pumpkin Coffee I can  ;-)

I get it black, add my own So Delicious Coconut Creamer and Stevia to it

I had Pumpkin in my breakfast as well to roll with the pumpkin theme  :-D

Overnight Pumpkin Oat Bran

1/2 cup oat bran, 1 cup water, 1 tbsp chia seeds, Sprinkles of cinnamon and pumpkin spice, Stevia

Topped with Sunwarrior Protein Frosting, Maple Syrup, and Sweet Potato and Cinnamon Rice Krisps

And a grocery run for Milk led to A cereal splurge and new to me yum splurge…

Silk  Unsweetened  Almond Milk * the Best* was needed

Two Splurges

Original Puffins , LOVE, I actually love them all  :-D

Vita Top Apple Crumb Flavor, Been wanting to try these!

Apple Crumb Top + Protein Frosting = match made in heaven  :mrgreen:

That is my day so far friends! I will be back later with lunch and dinner and maybe something more fun than packing  ;-)

What are you doing on this lovely Labor Day?

Katie xoxo

You know, at this rate, you’ll just turn into a pumpkin. Then I’ll make a delicious bread out of you.

But real talk: SO loving this pumpkin season, only thing getting me through the sadness of the end of the summer! I’m en route to a friend’s house to whip up a buffalo chicken dip for a labor day bbq. Yummy!


6 Healthy Diva September 5, 2011 at 1:44 pm

Haha! Mmmmmmm now I want pumpkin bread!!

Oh have fun at the party! Wish I was going somewhere , but nope, lol, and that dip sounds amazing! xoxo

I love the apple crumb flavor. The first time I got vitatops I did the online offer and got them and was always sad they didn’t sell them in stores. I still do most of my vitatop purchases online because it typically ends up cheaper. those things are just so expensive!

glad you got a lot of packing done! yay for accomplishments! haha.
have a great rest of your day doll ♥


8 Healthy Diva September 5, 2011 at 1:45 pm

Love your heart you left at the end!

Yes they are very expensive, I really don’t get them often, so I never order online, because I don’t need that many! They are good though! Excited to eat the apple crumb one! xoxo

I love Dunkin Donuts! We don’t have enough of them in the south, if ya ask me. ;) I’ve been baking and cooking ALL DAY! It is very gloomy outside, so it is a perfect day to whip up some masterpieces in the kitchen. :)


12 Healthy Diva September 5, 2011 at 6:52 pm

Gloomy here too! I bet you baked up some goodies! Happy monday! xoxo <3


13 Meredith @ food, shoes, and booze September 5, 2011 at 2:22 pm

I had pumpkin spice coffee this morning yummm :) I haven’t had a starbucks pumpkin spice latte yet this year.. I wasn’t sure if they had them yet or not! I’m obsessed with them! My labor day has involved sitting on the couch doing homework/watching movies. Its nasty and rainy out where I am!


14 Healthy Diva September 5, 2011 at 6:52 pm

It was a gloomy day here too : p

When you say “overnight” oats, what does that mean? Do you pre-mix everything the night before to let the oats soak it in?
Thanks!!! Can’t wait to try this.


20 Healthy Diva March 29, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Hi Janessa!

I cook the oats the night before and let then sit in the fridge overnight!

You can also just do it with oats, chia seeds, almond milk, protein powder, fruit, almond butter, stevia and just mix it all together and let sit overnight without cooking!
