Running in NYC

I ran the loop in #prospectpark for the first time in a long time. It was hard. It was sweaty. But I loved it. Your body will withstand just about anything you throw at it. Good or bad. It is a machine. Be good to your body and it will be good to you right back. (at Prospect Park)

Overnight Oats Recipe

If anyone follows me on my Instagram, you already saw this picture. Sorry, not sorry. I could look at (and eat) these overnight oats all day. Sometimes, I need to take a break from smoothies and try something new for breakfast. One of the reasons why I love smoothies so much is because they are so fast and easy to make. You literally can just roll out of bed and blend something up in less than 5 minutes. 

I was looking around the interwebs, as you do, to find something else to spice up my breakfast life. I stumbled upon a lot of amazing overnight oat recipes. The food porn that is dedicated to this breakfast is truly out of control. So I decided to give it a shot and contribute my own food porn.

overnight oats recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. 1/4 cup oats - I use Bob’s Red Mill
  2. 1 tablespoon chia seeds - again, Bob’s Red Mill
  3. 3/4 cup almond milk (vanilla or regular, unsweetened)
  4. Fresh fruit of choice

What you’ll do:

  1. Mix the oats, chia seeds and almond milk together and put in a glass jar with lid. 
  2. Put in your fridge overnight (thus the name). You could probably eat it after 3 hours but it just gets better the longer it sits.
  3. In the morning, top with your favorite fresh fruit and local honey.

P.S. If you want to make it vegan, just omit the honey :)

This was so good! Not super sweet (which I like). I’ve also seen people put frozen fruit  in the overnight oats during the prep. The fruit melts overnight and adds a lot of great flavor. 

It would be great to make 5 of these on a Sunday night for your meal prep

What’s your favorite breakfast food?

Up to 60% of the human adult body is water. It takes quite a bit of H2O to stay hydrated throughout the year, but it becomes even more important during the summer months. Here are 3 of my favorite hydrating smoothies. Sip on one of these each day for a fun, tasty way to rehydrate!

Endurance Sport - Back in the Saddle

runningmyownrace and exitrowiron just finished a 4 hour bike ride. On their trainers. In doors. Did I say it was a 4 hour training ride?

Well, they inspired me to dust off my bike, which was collecting dust and had very flat tires, and take it for a spin. 2 loops in Prospect Park later let me know how very out of endurance shape I am in. It’s crazy how endurance leaves you so quickly! It’s definitely something I want to start working on again. I really love it.

Maybe I’ll work up to a 1 hour cycling routine soon… 

Here was my workout

P.S. If you’re on Strava, let’s be friends!

Onward!

How did you workout this weekend?

Dark Chocolate Cherry Smoothie

I have a special weakness for chocolate. There just isn’t anything like it, am I right?! Adding raw cacao nibs or cacao powder to smoothies is a great way to satisfy any sweet tooth. Here is one I really love. Now that it’s cherry season, instead of dried cherries, use fresh!
