I hope all of your weekends were as great as mine. The sun was shining and it was hot, it’s hard to believe that it was only two months ago when it was 8 degrees.


Just goes to show that we Canadians really don’t live in Igloos, otherwise my house would be a melted puddle

What made my weekend great? Family time, friend time, and alone time. My alone time usually comes along with breakfast, since I’m the early bird in the family.

Strawberry Chocolate Cheesecake Oatbran

It was my first time making oatbran but it turned out to be satisfying and…slimy. It was only slimy because I added chia seeds. The night before I used Katie’s method for volumptious oats using:

  • oatbran
  • cocoa powder
  • cold strawberry tea
  • egg whites
  • chia seeds
  • sweetener, and a pinch of salt
I tried to follow the volumptious oats trick as closely as possible, but I think I may have left it in the microwave a bit too long because most of the water was already evaporated by the time I put it in the fridge.
In the morning I melted two laughing cow cheeses on top… …and dug in.

To you what makes the perfect weekend? Do you have your meals alone or with the company of others?
