Power Packed Cereal

This past weekend Joe and I headed down south to New Orleans! We went to Jazz Fest and listened to really good music, drank some cold beers and ate really good (not healthy) food. My favorite was probably the Crawfish Bread. It was pretty much a pizza dough stuffed with cheese, crawfish and creole seasoning. YUM. See the amazing-ness below.  The other picture was taken after standing all day. Sitting in a lawn chair was all we wanted to do. I always forget how tiring it can be to stand outside in the sun!




We also had a crawfish boil, which was both Joe and my first time peeling and eating crawfish. That stuffs hard work! Naturally, as the Top Chef junkie that I am, I knew you were supposed to suck the juice out of the head. Sometimes it worked and other times it didn't. I also learned there are about 50 variations on the "right" way to peel crawfish. All in all it was really messy but really delicious.



Before we flew home on Sunday night we went on a swamp walk. I really wanted to see an alligator...but no such luck. Just a bunch of snakes (gross), spiders (even more gross), frogs (cute) and lizards (the cutest!!). The scenery was beautiful!




On to the recipe!! Joe’s Aunt makes this amazing cereal that I had for breakfast while I was down there. So naturally I had to imitate it immediately when I got back. I also figured out its 21 Day Fix Approved!!
Power Packed Cereal

  • 9 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 ½ cups Walnuts
  • ½ + 1/8 cup Chia Seeds
