I was very excited to start of my Monday morning thanks to a little something I had sitting in my fridge, overnight oats. I was excited because this was was first ever bowl of overnight oats and I loved that they were so simple to make.
In the mix:
equal parts skim milk, vanilla yogurt, oats
1 teaspoon Goji berries
1 tablespoon granola
The verdict: They were okay but not as good as I had thought they would be. I think I probably messed up the milk, yogurt mixture, next time I will try it with less milk and more toppings. One thing is for sure, it was VERY filling!
And of course I had a coffee/cocoa mix to wash down the oats:
I ate all the broccoli and about half the pasta noodles in the picture below:
1 cup of turkey broth. Turkey was in the mix as well but for some reason I don’t like to eat the meat in the soup. So I just have the broth:)
After my lunch had digested I did my 3rd week, 1st workout of the Couch to 5K workout. I was nervous for this one because within the workout I would have to run 3 minutes straight. Okay, all you runner out there try not to laugh, this is something that is hard for me;) I’m happy to report that it was not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. I was able to get through the workout and am even thinking I will up the speed on my Wednesday run!
Needless to say the little bit of pasta and the turkey broth was not very filling. After my workout I dug around in my snack drawer and pulled out a Larabar – Chocolate Coconut Chew:
I was really expecting this to be more flavorful. So far the only bar that I’ve liked from the company has been the Cinnamon Roll flavor. I haven’t tried all of the flavors, actually I’ve only had about 4 of them. I have 1 more in my stash to try out and I’m hoping it is as tasty as the Cinnamon Roll. Fingers crossed!
My husband was meeting friends at Ceres so after I was done with work I met up with him.
I ordered my usual of Captain and Coke:
We munched on a bowl of Chili with Cheddar cheese. I like to dip tortilla chips in the Chili as a sort of appetizer. So good!
When we got home I was firmly planted on the couch to watch the Bachelor. It was really fun to watch it and comment with all the people on twitter!
I was so involved in the show I didn’t even take a photo of my dinner. No worries, it was just angel hair pasta and tomato sauce. Nothing fancy!
Well, I hope everyone made it through Monday okay! I did.
Do you like overnight oats and if yes how do you make them?
