For some reason today I could barely finish my oatmeal I was SO full!! Maybe it was the mug of with it coffee? Although during my run this morning my stomach was kind of cramping. Hmmm.
Speaking of my run, we got up early to run before we left. It was hard getting up, but as always, 2 minutes into the run I was happy. We did about 4 miles or so. It’s amazing the difference in running in the summertime before the sun rises. Too bad the summer is sleep-in season as well!
So today’s oatmeal is titled Nutty Oats. There was an emphasis on nuts today. The husband put some peanuts on his so I put a few on mine. A lovely addition. A few walnuts too and I went a little heavy on the spoonful of PB as well.
- 1/3 cup dry rolled oats, 1/3 cup 1% milk, 1/3 cup water
- 1/2 banana
- Pinch salt
- Vanilla bean paste
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 tbsp flax
- Sprinkle peanuts, walnuts
- Touch of brown sugar
- Spoonful PB – probably a full tbsp today
Plus Coconut Cupcake Coffee! It was good, but not out-of-this-world good like the Spring Blend. I think it needs lots of milk + splenda to be out of this world and I didn’t want to over do the mix-ins. The husband made his iced and it was really good – I think because it was half milk! Can’t wait to try the Tiramisu!
I need to catch up on my Olympic watching – the men’s gymnastics final was last night and we’ve got it DVRed but I won’t get to watch it until we get back. Do you think I can stand not to cheat and look at the results online!? I hope we can watch some of the women’s in the mountains tonight.
The husband ran to the grocery store while I blog for our dinner ingredients we’re cooking for my parents. You’ll have to wait and see what we come up with! We’re leaving soon for our mountain trip. I’m not sure when my next post will be, but I’ll make an effort to put something up tonight, or tomorrow at the latest.
