Before going to bed last night, I made breakfast: overnight oats.
Here’s what they looked like before bed.
In the bowl:
- 4 oz. low-fat raspberry Lucerne yogurt
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 mashed banana
- chia seeds
- sliced almonds
- sliced frozen strawberries
Can you believe I took this picture at almost 10:00 p.m.?!?! (Well, of course those of who live in Alaska can.)
When I was choosing a flavor at the grocery store, I immediately checked the sugar content of the yogurt. Most of them had 32-33 grams of sugar!! That’s way too much–even for my sweet tooth, so I settled on the raspberry which had 25 grams. Better, but still not great.
In the morning, I added fresh nectarine, shredded coconut, and Kashi Heart-to-Heart Cinnamon Oat Cereal.
I am still not sure how I feel about overnight oats. It is really nice that breakfast is already made when I wake up because I usually pretty hungry right away, but it is kind of mushy. So many other bloggers love their overnight oats which makes me think I am doing something wrong. Who knows.
Review: Short-sleeve Running Shirts
I reviewed my running shorts a while back and thought it was only fit to do the same with my short-sleeved running tops.
(Oh, wow, when I just went to create the link above for the review on my running shorts, I had nearly the EXACT same breakfast as I did this morning!!–overnight oats with strawberries and nectarines. Weird!!)
First up . . . .one of my favorites. This Nike top has a great fit. It is not too baggy and has a fitted cut. You can also see that the back is slightly longer which is nice for some gluteus maximus coverage. (We’ve got to be technical here!!)
I am not a fan of this shirt. The length is too short and the sleeves are short and wide. On the plus side, it is made of a nice dry-wicking material.
The phrase on the front is cute. However, shouldn’t it be on the back? Just a thought.
This shirt would be my second favorite. I love the feel of the material and the fit is excellent. The only downside is that it is white.
Time to lace up my running shoes and go on my run for the day!
