Hey there! I hope your weekend is going great! It was 68 degrees yesterday in my neck of the woods, so you can betcha I was outdoors for a run! I ended up doing 5 miles, and can you believe I was wearing a tank top and shorts? In February? Love it!
After all of my Saturday chores were done and I finished my run, I spent some time outside enjoying a book and some coffee.
I’m really enjoying this book so far. I’m only about 100 pages in and have found myself laughing out loud at some parts, crying at other moments.
Another thing I did yesterday was start out the day with a healthy breakfast. Most days, I’ll have a smoothie made with greens and various fruits, or I’ll have oatmeal that’s either warm or soaked overnight. Yesterday I made oatmeal:
For this oatmeal, I took about 1/2 cup oats, 1 Tbsp of ground flaxseed, 1/2 Tbsp of chia seeds and covered it with water and microwaved for 2 minutes. I then added a Tbsp of peanut butter and then topped with fresh blueberries and banana.
This is a very hearty breakfast that will keep you full throughout the morning.
The great thing about oatmeal is that you can use various nut butters and fruit for toppings. You can spice it up with cinnamon. You can add a splash of non-dairy milk. It’s quick, easy, healthy and filling.
We are set for another beautiful day here, so I will be enjoying some more nice weather! I hope that you’ll have a beautiful day where you’re at as well!
Tell me in the comments: what’s for breakfast?
