Kobi made a new friend! At first, he was a bit scared. Cubby’s tail kept whacking him but I’m glad there were no hard feelings. The two spent some quality time playing outside and enjoying the first day of spring!
Kobi learned some good social skills from Cubby, but thankfully he didn’t start eating sticks (see Cubby above). I don’t think his little body would have handled it very well.
Later in the day, I made granola for tomorrow morning! It is protein packed, and perfectly portioned to give you just the right amounts of healthy fats, proteins, and fiber! I didn’t add any dried fruits, but feel free to add some after you finish baking or else they will burn.
1/2 cup oats (We only had quick oats, but I would use rolled/steel cut if possible)
1/3 cup quinoa, uncooked
1.5 tbsp whole flax seed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 scoop protein powder
1/ tsp vanilla
2 tbsp almonds, chopped
2 tbsp pecans, chopped
1/2 tbsp agave
>>Preheat oven to 350F. Rinse the oats and quinoa. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and push down/spread the mixture onto a pan. Bake for about 30 mins, stirring halfway through. [Makes 5 servings]
