Happy Thursday! I always look forward to Thursday posts because it’s a time to just let the stream of consciousness do its thing. I’ve got a lot kicking around in my head today, so let’s get down to it, shall we?

*Maybe this is a weird food blogger thing, but there are fewer food-things better than oats eaten out of a near-empty peanut butter jar. Best way to deal with that last tablespoon ever. Tuesday morning, I made a batch of zucchini bread oats (with egg white for extra protein) for the next few days and poured a serving into this jar. Perfection. zucchini bread oats in a jar keeping it real food

*Starting this weekend I’m going to take a break from blogging on Saturdays. I have a lot of exciting projects in the works that I’ll continue to share with you guys, but I need to make time to focus on those things. And you, know, practice having a life. Besides, the weather is starting to get nicer out, so my hope is that you would all be out enjoying each other instead of inside reading nutrition blogs ; )

*Speaking of nutrition blogs, an article I contributed to on coconut oil cooking hacks is now up on Shape.  I mention some of my fave uses for coconut oil and talk about granola clusters and Magic Shell for grown-ups.

*This is funny because it’s true. “Hi, my name is Steven. I’m in accounting, and I love man-made lakes.” Ah, speed dating…So bad, it’s good.

*Not funny: Diet pills. In this Yahoo Health article, I voice a few of my concerns.

What’s on your mind this Thursday? 

This post has been part of another Running with Spoons Thinking Out Loud link party, where randomness is the o of the game. Thanks to Amanda for hosting.
