Is it just me, or did mother nature miss the memo that...
Or maybe she's a little confused,
because this weather is definitely more fall-like than summer.
But, alas, it is what it is.
This cold weather has meant i'm back to eating my fall and winter favourites,
piping hot oatmeal sprinkled with warming spices like cinnamon,
hot chocolates instead of ice cream for dessert,
and steamed vegetables instead of summer salads.
My wardrobe even had to revert itself back to winter mode
and my cute summery skirts and dresses are right back in the wardrobe.
I've also realised that studying in the sun makes it 100x more bearable than studying inside.
and studying inside when the skies are dark, miserable and gray and the heavens seem to be streaming from the clouds? yeah, hardly motivating is it?
But hey, I'm not a study bug
so I get to do other fun things,
like reviewing products,
their signature flavour of warming cinnamon is perfect for this cold weather.
The Apricot and Almond bar is soft and chewy
with a perfect balance of crunchy almonds and soft apricot pieces.
The deluxe muesli bars could quite possibly be my favourite.
They're chewy with a slight crunchy from the puffed rice and nut pieces.
These bars are perfect for those with coeliac disease or gluten intolerances
and they don't taste horrible like some other alternatives available.
Don't like dried fruit but still want to enjoy the chewy oat-y goodness?
Well, Carman's solves that problem too with their Fruit-free muesli bar.
You won't find any fruit here! Just oats, honey, cinnamon and nuts.
Not my favourite because I'm a big dried fruit fan
but this was the favourite of one of my fussy mini taste testers!
Sometimes its good to stick with the tried and true,
and that's exactly what classic muesli bar is.
Sultanas, currants and dried apricots are the perfect addition to the honey oat base.
They're soft and chewy and definitely taste more home-made than other store bought bars.
the best thing about Carman's muesli bars is what they're made of.
All natural, Australian made, GM free, Preservative free and REAL.
Carman's believe that food should come from the kitchen and not the chemist
and this is something I agree with, 110 percent!
and they're not going to cost you a fortune
- you can buy them in supermarkets Australia wide!
So this cold weather has me thinking,
does the weather affect what you choose to eat?
what's your favourite comfort food?
For me, when it's cold, I tend to seek the comfort of a warm bowl of oatmeal
or a hot cup of tea or hot chocolate.
When i'm feeling sick, I crave salad vegetables - why? I have no idea!
For some reason, the freshness of crisp fresh vegetables seems to do the trick every time.
