Hey All –
I cannot believe that I have time to do a morning post – sweet! 🙂
Last night I realized that I really wanted overnight oats, thankfully I realized it while there was still time to prepare them. I had never actually made overnight oats so I quickly went to Kath’s blog and got the instructions for summer oats!
I used 1/2 a cup of rolled oats 1/2 a cup of low fat Stoneyfield yogurt and 1/2 a cup of light vanilla soy milk.
I covered the oats and put them in the refrigerator for the night. I have to say the excitement over my oats really helped me wake up early today! Along with the overnight oats, I had a glass of iced coffee with light soy milk and a half scoop of protein powder.
Breakfast with the new New Yorker:

Well, I really love overnight oats! I love that this is a great way to eat oats in the summer when it is really too hot to eat oatmeal. I also love that most of the prep work is done the night before! Breakfast was a snap this morning. The toppings are:
- Teddie Peanut butter (just under a tablespoon)
- blue berries
- sprinkle of Chappaqua Crunch Granola
- last night I added nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin spices along with a small splash of vanilla – the flavor made everything taste great this morning!
OK – I’ve got to get to work and then the gym after work. I’ve already packed my gym bag – a new Vineyard Vines bag that I picked up at Union this weekend. I love it because Union College had these bags custome made with the Nott Memorial on them:
Packed for the gym:
I also hope to get a walk in during my lunch time today.
Ok – hope you all have a great Thursday! See you later tonight. 🙂
