about 3/4 of the way through my 10-mile run, my stomach started to rumble. i always spend the last portion of long-runs planning my breakfast. today, i knew exactly what i wanted to eat: overnight oats. i find a lot of recipes on this blog, but i often tweak them just a bit. for my version of overnight oats, i simply cook a serving of oats as instructed on the canister (these are my favorite).
after they're cooked, i add a 1/2 cup of cold almond milk to the hot oats, stir, and stick them in the refrigerator overnight. in the morning, the oats have absorbed all the milk and you're left with a large bowl of creamy, cold oats.
now you're ready to add anything your heart desires... this morning, i added pureed pumpkin (ever since i read this book i've tried to increase my pumpkin consumption... it's a great source of carotenoids). i also added some vanilla, lots of cinnamon, chia seeds, and some truvia (but honey or maple syrup would be great, too). some other nice add-ins are bananas, blueberries, greek yogurt, roasted almonds, and granola.
how great are these milly dresses? i've always had a soft-spot for milly... the line often looks as if it was plucked from the closet of blair waldorf or charlotte york goldenblatt. i'm particularly fond of the ecru number.
