oats in a jar = overrated.

Am I the only one who thinks oats in a jar are overrated?

I don’t think I like them *that* much as other people rave about them. Duh, you get lots of almond butter in each bite (see #4) but here’s my reasons why I think the damn jar is annoying:

  1. it’s so hard to stick your spoon in there without getting oats on your hand every time
  2. it’s also hard to pull the oats out of the tiny jar without spilling them – balance required <- not easy in the morning
  3. you loose all the toppings you put in ie: they sink to the bottom… that maple syrup? sunken like the titanic. I like to add it on top and then with each bite “dip” into it
  4. my dumbass always leaves like none in the jar so it’s basically like scrapping for a year to get a tiny little bit of almond butter
  5. just annoying… heh

So. That’s my dealio with the jar. I like bowls better and then add my toppings. Bowls > jars, FTW.

I realized this because this morning I had oats in a jar. Thumbs down

In the demon jar:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • not enough almond butter
  • too much milk
  • cinnamon, vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • 1 tsp agave maple syrup

BTW: I finished this jar in like… a week. LOL.

Coffee. Thumbs up

Now for a little motivation, because I’m all about that. I love seeing pictures of things/quotes that motivate me and mentally prep me for the week.

Off to hang with my Cat face & Dog face (because I’m cool) then do this School which makes me feel like this Devil and wish I were doing this Island with a palm tree.
