New Old Bowl. Doga?

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Maybe this is a food blogger thing, but every time I buy a new bowl/plate/dish, I get so excited because I can use it on the blog! 😀 This morning’s “new” bowl is actually almost as old as me. My grandparents lived in Switzerland for many years, and shortly after I was born, they purchased this bowl (below) from Chamonix for me. It has the name “Christine” painted on the side, which I guess was the closest they could find to my actual name “Christina.” It’s funny because my mom still occasionally calls me “Christine” instead of my actual name. Inside the bowl are three hand-painted blue flowers. It’s very pretty and the perfect size for oatmeal! :mrgreen:

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup dry oats
  • 1/4 cup wheat bran
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
  • 1 tbsp hemp protein
  • 1/2 cup of vanilla hemp milk
  • Splash of water
  • Golden raisins
  • 2 big-ass scoops of Barney Butter

Here’s my new bowl full of oats with iced coffee and organic strawberries that are going bad faster than I can eat them!

Question of the Day

What do you think of this: Doga: Just What It Sounds Like?



  1. can i just say, i love that you wrote “2 big-ass scoops of barney butter”– that made my morning!

  2. Lovely bowl, Tina. I know what you mean about strawberries going bad too quickly – I’ve also been disappointed by their taste (or lack thereof) lately.

  3. Ha. I’ve heard of that before. Although, I have to say, I think my dogs already do yoga. There’s a reason it’s called downward face dog, right?

  4. I imagine my poor dog would freak out if I ever tried to put her in a pose… 🙁

    I like your bowl!

  5. It sounds a little wacky, but my Boston terrier would LOVE it. Gentle stretching combined with attention–he’d be all over it!

  6. Before your strawberries go bad- freeze them! They are great in smoothies and such. Love the bowl obsession- I love new dishes as well!

  7. Great looking bowl. Love the placemat too! I want to start buying a variety of dishes too. I think I’ll check out garage sales this summer.

  8. my dog is mental and would never ever sit still in a doga class..we tried doggy obedience school and she and my dad both failed…the teacher said “he gave into her too much and she wouldn’t listen to him because she had him wrapped around her little paw”..actual quote haha

  9. Oh it is a toooooootal foodie thing! My friends will laugh hysterically @ me b/c we’ll go to something like the Container Store or IKEA and I’ll always get giddy when we reach the dishes;)

    OK this may be a really stupid question….and I think it may have been you that said what it was b/f??? But what exactly is wheat bran??? Like is it a meal-consistency powder? Do you microwave it? oy.

  10. I get super excited about new dishes too! I actually picked up some awesome new ones in Vancouver and I can’t wait to blog with them! haha I know, huge nerd! I love the story behind your bowl 🙂
    Your breakfast looks soooo good!
    Doga? haha My Layla would get kicked out of that in a hurry!

  11. I read about this a couple of weeks ago and was interested. I don’t see my cockapoo being chill enough to stay still during all of this. I think he’d be more interested in jumping on people and playing with other dogs.

  12. That first picture on that article is hilarious! I understand about the strawberries. I bought 8 pounds of strawberries last week and made a bunch of jam and syrups. I saved a bunch out to eat but they went bad within a few days! I finished the last of them this morning!

  13. My dog loves to stretch and I encourage it. Whenever she stretches I repeat stretch, stretch, stretch and she seems to get further into it. I bought a Doga DVD online within the last 6 months, but can’t say I use it all to often.

  14. I just bought a recycled glass bowl from Target and it was the highlight of my shopping trip. My boyfriend thinks I’m nuts, hehe. And I second the motion to freeze the strawberries before they go bad – they’ll make the perfect smoothie addition 🙂
