The bad news is, I’ve been a bad blogger lately.
The good news is, I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to be a good employee, wife, cook, and workout queen. All of those are good, but I don’t want to neglect my little blog!
While I’m focusing on the things I’ve done well, I’d like to mention that I was very successful at eating a healthy breakfast for dinner tonight.
This morning, when I nearly emptied out the last of my peanut butter for breakfast, I decided to pre-soak some oats for an evening twist of overnight oats in a jar.
I took this jar. (Note the splatter of blackberry jam).
I added 3/4 cup of oats
Some golden ground flax meal that harvested right next door in Minnesota
Some pumpkin pie spice
And, some milk
Shake! You might just get a little tired. Especially if you are shaking your oats after an intense weights session.
I let my oats soak in the refrigerator all day long, and when I came home from work they were a creamy and cool peanut buttery treat. My best friend Colleen doesn’t like overnight oats, but I’m convinced she’s not making them right. : )
I paired my oats with egg whites, spinach and a Babybel cheese. It was a healthy and filling, breakfast for dinner. The perfect mix of savory and sweet.
Is there anything better than eating right out of a peanut butter jar? I don’t think so.
I’m cutting tonight a little short. I’m getting packed up for a work trip in the morning.
Something to do: I’ve been receiving a lot of great questions from my wonderful readers on topics like food, workouts, recipes, careers, marriage and happiness. I’d love to start addressing those questions on the blog. Please send me any questions or requests for posts. Leave your quesions in the comments section below, or send me an e-mail (email@example.com), if you’d like to go incognito. : )
Have a great night!
