G’ morning. I had a twinge of a feeling that this morning was not going to be the easiest of all mornings to wake up especially considering we had such a great weekend getaway. I am trying to stay positive though. I did a little food prep last night and got my breakfast in the fridge so that I would have one less thing to worry about in the morning.
Last night, I mixed together 1/4 cup oats, 1/4 cup non-fat greek yogurt, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1 tsp chia seeds, 3 Tbsp frozen blueberries and a little bit of stevia for added sweetness. I stirred until combined, covered, and set in the fridge to work together overnight.
This morning I simply removed the oats from the fridge, added a dash of almond milk, gave it one last good stir, topped it with some blackberries, and dug right in. I got this idea from reading other health blogs like Julie @pbfingers. Great idea!
My last attempt at “overnight oats” failed miserably. I must not have gotten the proportions wrong or something because it tasted just blah to me. This time however, it was so creamy, sweet but not too sweet, and wonderful. It was a cool and refreshing way to start the day. I redeemed myself.
I have decided that on Mondays, I want to post something positive, because I have a really bad relationship with Mondays. So, my positive for today is that I had a great healthy breakfast this morning, and even better, it was prepared the night before!
Let’s get through Monday together. What is something positive you can say about your Monday? Sharing is caring!
