Ira Glass Loves Oatmeal

Okay so I can’t say that with any authority. But I offer you this as evidence:

I love oatmeal. And I love listening to Ira Glass in the morning while I eat my oatmeal. So my 6am powers of deductive reasoning tell me that Ira Glass must love oatmeal. Why else would he spend so much of his time recording episodes of This American Life just to entertain me during the hours that I’m wide awake on weekend mornings but no one else has even kicked off their covers? Riddle me that.

Crockpot Steel Cut Oats

  • 3 cups water, 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
Combine ingredients in your slow cooker and cook on low overnight. Makes 4 thick, creamy, delicious servings.

My breakkie today: 1 big cup of oats mixed with 1 scoop of sun warrior protein powder and topped with a bit of maple syrup, frozen berries, cinnamon granola and drippy almond butter.

This morning as I was eating the above bowl of deliciousness, I stumbled across this quote from the man himself and I thought it was worth sharing. Whether you’re a writer, an artist, a mother, a teacher or an espresso slinging barista I think that the struggle to live up to your own high expectations is something we’ve all experienced. It’s certainly something I’m coming up against now as I’m smack dab in the middle of my quarter-life-crisis.


Swoon. Have a lovely Saturday!

    Fantastic quote!! I think the DO A LOT OF WORK line really rings true. You cant expect to succeed without putting in consistent effort. Hm, I need to take this advice!

    Also I like your conclusion that Ira Glass likes oatmeal…heh heh.
