Coconut Butter

Hello all!  I’m all rested from the long/busy event at the museum!

Tomorrow is Election Day (Get out and Vote!) so I have the day off!  I’m going in for a half a day anyway (for a random reason that can’t be avoided!) but I still have half a day off.   I’ve saved a lot of my errands for tomorrow, including going to the grocery store! Today was spent relaxing, GRE prep, and running!


I bought some coconut butter from Kath’s Halloween Open Sky promotion!  I waited for it to arrive for about a week.  I was excited to see the package.

I decided to use it in my breakfast!

I don’t have a microwave, so I melted the butter on the stove.

It took me about 10 minutes to melt it!

Twix approved of the coconut butter.

At someone is using the microwave.

I topped my oat bran with the coconut butter.

I also added bananas!

The coconut butter was tasty!!  I think I undercooked the oatbran, but otherwise it was great.

Lunch was quick and easy.

A scrambled egg with Laughing Cow on a WW bagel thin.  Paired with the last of my spinach mix.


I ran 6 miles in 69 minutes.  I have a half marathon on Sunday, so I kept it a little lighter than a normal long run.

I ate a Strawberry Banana Gel at mile 3.

I liked this flavor!  The PowerBar Gel seemed to be a little more liquid than the Gu brand.  Good, but it was also in a bigger package.  It was fine in the Camelbak, but I think it would be annoying carrying it!

Here is a cute picture of my cats.

I think they were cold.  They sleep together when they are cold.  Or when Phantom is sleeping somewhere Twix wants to sleep.  Twix is a little bossy.

I’m trying to get more creative with what I eat this week!

Do you have any favorite easy recipes?

    Ohh I’ve never seen those PowerBar Gels before. Glad to hear you liked it! I do think the GUs are a little thick, so I might give these a try!
