Where does your blog title come from?
Well, I originally came up with the title “Catch More Flies With Honey” because I thought it was a cute phrase that captured the idea that your body can gain more from eating less refined sugar and more of the alternatives. It’s now “Kaitlin With Honey” because it’s a bit more cohesive and it’s easier to find me that way.
Any tricks on heating up food?
At this point in my kitchen experimenting, I’m getting a pretty good handle on how long things take to cook, at what temperature, and in which source of heat (oven, toaster oven, stove, microwave). I think it’s all a matter of trial and error. It’s always smart to play it safe and check your food halfway into the time you think it will take to heat something. If it’s getting close to hot enough, just lower your time. If it still seems colder than it should be at halfway, add more time!
Oh, and if it’s the kind of item you can or would want to stir, definitely stop it to stir at least once (more if it’s a long heating process) so you can distribute the heat and avoid those weird hot and cold spots. This applies to heating in all heating appliances but is especially true for microwaving.
How many hours of sleep do you get per night?
I get 6-7 hours of sleep a night (usually closer to 7). I’ve found that if I get more (except when my body needs it – and it tells me when it does!), I get kind of lethargic. Everybody is different, though, and you have to do what feels right for your body.
I think, with me, it’s just genetics. My mom and grandma both get about that much and are both early risers. This kicked in for me in my early 20s and I don’t really see it ever changing.
Can you taste the spinach you put in your smoothies?
I cannot! Spinach is virtually tasteless in these smoothies (or, if I can taste it and don’t realize it, I love the taste). What it really does is add a great source of protein and bulk the smoothies up quite a bit.
Do you eat the overnight oats cold in the morning? How does that taste?
I do! I know some bloggers out there warm their overnight oats in the microwave for 15 or so seconds to take the chill off, but I honestly like them cold.
I find that the actual oats aren’t really a separate ingredient in the morning after they’ve soaked into the milk and yogurt. It really tastes more like a cohesive custard.
It’s DELICIOUS! It makes me happy every single time I eat it.
