Hello from my new phone!!!! This is awesome! I’m excited!
(This was from my Instagram story I posted immediately after leaving the store.)
The other first pictures on my new fancy Pixel Phone include Vegas sleeping through me telling him about my new phone. I guess he’s all about the iphone?
And my first food photo… dark chocolate. The black wrapper ones are where it’s at. They are super dark, but not bitter.
This morning I hit the road for an 8 mile run. Something is seriously wrong in the world because Southern California has gotten more rain than I remember in my entire life. Is it El Nino or what?? This is crazy. Global warming and stuff I guess…
It was sprinkling when I started running, which is no big deal because it wasn’t really that cold just wet.
But half way through it started to rain harder and I tried to rush home. Usually I switch from podcasts to music when I need to run faster but I didn’t want to pull out my phone and mess with it when it was raining hard.
So, I just tried to get it together and Gooooooo! It actually worked well since I kept in mind all the stuff I needed to get back home to do.
My breakfast was speedy too…
I made a new and improved version of Overnight Oats this morning. You don’t really need to let oats sit overnight to soak up the liquid and get soft and chewy – you can just let them set while you run. And so… Over RUN Oats were born.
How to make Over Run Oats
Ingredients: 1/2 cup quick cooking oats (or 2 packets of instant oats), 3/4 cup milk (or soy/almond), dash: salt, cinnamon, vanilla
Optional add-ins: blueberries, chia seeds, raisins, cranberries, banana, apples, flaxseeds, slivered almonds, honey, peanut butter… basically anything and everything you want.
This is a super easy ‘recipe’ you can put together before you run. Mix your favorite oatmeal ingredients together. Place in the fridge to ‘marinate’.
Go for a run.
When you get back – stir and add toppings and sweetener. Enjoy!
I mixed up the base. Placed in fridge. Ran. Came home and stirred and then added apple, almond slivers and a drizzle of honey.
