Today I had my first yoatgurt experience.
I took inspiration from The Healthy Everythingtarian’s yoatgurt recipe but gave it my own little twist.
I have to say this breakfast was perfect after a hard workout. It was comforting like oatmeal but the yogurt cooled it down and gave the oats a smooth texture. Yum!
Pb & J Yoatgurt
1/3 cup oats
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp chia seeds
2 tsp raisins
1/2 banana, sliced thinly
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 T cinnamon
1/3 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup warmed frozen strawberries + juice
1 T sunflower seed butter
Heat oats, water, almond milk, chia seeds, and raisins over medium high heat until they start to boil. Whisk in banana, vanilla, and cinnamon and cook until oats reach desired consistency. Pour into bowl and top with yogurt, strawberries, and sunflower seed butter.
Mix, mix, mix and then eat .
Have you ever tried yoatgurt? What did you think? Honestly, this is one of my favorite new breakfasts. I am already thinking of all of the different variations I could create!
When I woke up this morning and saw this, I knew I’d have to bring my run inside today.
I was really bummed, both of my outdoor runs got moved inside this week. That means I won’t be able to run outside until Saturday. Grrrr….
My run was tough, 10 miles on the treadmill is never fun. I tried to switch it up by starting at an 8 min/mile and then increasing the speed after every 2.5 miles. I felt really weak and towards the end I almost felt like I was bonking.
I guess not every run can be great but I don’t think I fueled well enough for this run. While a date with peanut butter is usually enough, I don’t normally eat dinner as early as I did last night and my body had gone 12+ hours without a true meal or snack. Live and learn.
How do you normally fuel for workouts? Does it depend on how you ate the night before or do you always fuel the same way?
