Wow, I predicted it yesterday but I am SO SORE today. The chest flyes have my armpits screaming and the curtsy lunges and deadlifts have my thighs and hammies a bit sore as well. But like the poster says, I’d rather be sore than sorry.
On a more exciting note (food!), t’s no surprise that I am a fan of oatmeal. If you have seen my Daily Eats posts from the past week, you know oatmeal is a reoccurring theme. I love hot oats right now as it is still very cold in the mornings here, but I also really enjoy a bowl of cold overnight oats now and then. I try to mix up my oatmeal flavors so as not to get bored from day-to-day. I have previously made apple-cinnamon overnight oats (like apple crisp!), carrot cake overnight oats, and even pumpkin pie overnight oats. Needless to say, I let baked goods be an inspiration for new creations and this morning’s oats were inspired by one of my most beloved baked goods…banana bread. You can serve these cold as the recipe calls for or I do believe they would make a delicious warm bowl of oats as well. E
Banana Bread Overnight Oats
- 1/3 cup rolled oats
- 1-2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I use vegan+raw)
- Packet stevia, optional
- A few dashes of cinnamon
- Dash of nutmeg
- 1 cup almond milk
- Drop vanilla extract
- 1 banana, sliced
- 1-2 tbsp walnuts, chopped
- Combine dry ingredients in a mason jar, mix well.
- Add almond milk and vanilla, close the lid, and shake vigorously until everything is blended together (or you can whisk together in tupperware, but I have found it is so much easier and quicker to shake in a jar…the protein powder takes forever to whisk!)
- Add in sliced banana and walnuts and refrigerate overnight.
Combine ingredients and shake well
Store overnight in fridge
Eat straight out of the jar if you are on-the-go
Or serve with extra walnuts and a splash of almond milk
Back tonight with a new Daily Eats posts…I’m sure you can guess what I had for breakfast today!
