How I Do Mornings + Chocolate Protein Oats from Oh, Ladycakes
So it should come as no surprise that the first thing I do when I get out of bed each morning is walk downstairs, fill the electric kettle (I’m not one to promote unnecessary consumption but if you haven’t upgraded your stovetop kettle to the adjustable temperature pour-over kettle— WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?) (not only do you get to control the water temperature (!) but the body and handle design make for a super smooth pour), and drink a big glass of room temperature water while I wait for the other water to boil. Once the water is ready, I make my favorite cup of pour-over and savor it from the comfort of our couch (or bed). I do this every single morning of every single day and it’s been my routine for as long as I can remember. Even on days when we have to be out of the house by 6AM, I’ll wake up an hour before Thom just to ensure I get that little chunk of quiet time to myself.

My Favorite Cup of Pour-Over + Homemade Soy Creamer by Oh, Lady Cakes
If it wasn’t clear from my old radiator shelfie lined with coffee-making devices, I like coffee. A lot. So much that I drink two or three big mugs of it a day. At one point I tried reducing my coffee intake (you might remember this) but I quickly realized that I feel pretty miserable when I don’t start my day with copious amounts of coffee (and then Thom informed me that I’m also a miserable person to be around when I’m trying to lay off the coffees). Thankfully, a switch flipped and I realized coffee wasn’t entirely to blame – it was the fact that I would drink three mugs of the stuff on an empty stomach. One mug on an empty stomach? Ok. Three? Not a good idea. For anyone. Ever. (more…)
