Everyone relaxes differently. Parrish’s ideal day would involve a magically clean house, a Chelsea game on TV, and a bowl full of gummi worms. Max enjoys a nice patch of sun:

I call this “baking his gingerbread”.

For me relaxation is less tangible. Maybe it’s going to the movies or a tough yoga class, but if asked to pin point an ideal day…I struggle. Maybe I need more practice at relaxing :) BUT I do know that it would start with a bangin’ bowl of oats! Like this one:

Strawberry Whipped Oats topped with Enjoy Life Mountain Mambo trail mix

In the mix: 1/3 cup water, 1/3 cup LF milk, 1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill GF oats, slivered strawberries whipped into submission, 1/2 tsp. chia powder, and nut free trail mix

When Enjoy Life asked me if I could give them feedback on their trail mixes I jumped at the chance! I could see the oatmeal toppings :) I really liked this trail mix. The apple bits were my favorite…or maybe the chocolate chips :)

And I loved the strawberry in the oats!

Blueberry I think would end up my favorite, but strawberry always tends to be good. Honey vanilla is one I have not tried, greek or not.. so maybe that would be interesting. Like a dessert huh? :)

Ok time to wish I was relaxing & get back to work.
