They’re Back

Overnight oats are back!

Woo Hoo!  It’s been a little while since I’ve had this breakfast, so I whipped up a batch in prep for tomorrow morning’s track workout.  I am meeting a coworker at the indoor track near work, so it was an early morning…perfect for breakfast in the car.  I convinced my coworker to try one of my new favorite interval workouts, so we’ll see how it goes.  With breakfast and a friend waiting, it will be hard to sleep in…even if it is another grey day!

 

Not yet back…the sun!

This stuff is amazing!  But even better with a tiny cookie dough ball.

It’s about as close to a homemade DQ blizzard as you can get!

Although my workouts are going well (I ran 9.5 miles this weekend), my eating has been a bit overboard.  It’s really time to get that BACK on track!

 

 

What’s back in your world???

  1. I WISH overnight oats were back in my life! I used to eat them so often.. but just not feeling it lately (aka..months). Smoothies are rocking my world though – I have one almost everyday.. probably because spring is here (west coast living) and it’s sunny out! I hope you guys get some sun soon soon soon! Those cookie dough balls look amazing…

    • They are the BEST! You should make a batch and store them in the freezer! We don’t have anything like spring yet, so I a not getting into my smoothies, but can’t wait for the farmer’s markets to open!

  2. Chia seeds are back in my world and I have you to thank! You mentioned them to me last week and had completely forgotten about them. I found a bag in the pantry and gave them the love they deserve. Thanks for the reminder 😉

    I’ve never tried overnight oats, but I feel like I need to. Muesli is one of my favorite breakfasts in Europe. Is it like that?

  3. I have a bunch of frozen bananas, and this is the perfect way to use ’em. My bf and I both have a serious sweet tooth, so this is a great alternative to ice cream!

  4. Hope the track workout went well!
    Those cookie dough balls look so good!
    OUTSIDE CYCLING is back in my world! Well, I got in my first ride today, but I think that’ll be it for a while. We’re in for rain/snow mix tomorrow and Saturday.

    • I hope that your storm is nothing like what we got today…it was some of the worst flooding I’ve ever seen! I may not be getting out for a LONG time, but glad you fit in a ride!

  5. I’ve been debating whether to make overnight oats my go-to breakfast again! I haven’t decided if it’s quite warm enough out yet to have a cold breakfast, especially after the snow today. 😦 Soon though, soon the overnight oats will be back in my life!
