I set the alarm for 5:30 this morning so I could get out early and beat the heat. It was still dark I ended up tinkering around and didn’t get my butt out the door until 7.
I spent what felt like an hour sawing my slightly more ripe peach off it’s pit.
A muggy but not-too-hot run this morning for 6.24 miles in 53 minutes – just a nice and easy pace considering the distance and air thickness today.
Back home, Zak asked if I was going to make juice. I think he’s hooked.
Hers and His.
Yes, that’s mine on the left. I got the The Look and filled his glass to the top from my giant glass. Alright, alright settle down! I suppose I don’t really need to drink a gallon of it.
Today’s juice would be one of the giant heads of romaine I scored on Saturday, plus one and a half cucumbers, two lemons, an apple and a boat load of ginger. Ginger makes it SPICY!
Our green lemonade traveled to the deck where we sat and were able to chat in child free peace and serenity like two normal adults.
Now the man is off to work and the children are up and it’s time for an official breakfast.
Chocolate Overnight Oats – or maybe I should call them Chocolate While I Run Oats since I threw these together this morning before I left. I find that they really only need to soak for an hour to soften up.
Or maybe we could just call them the Adult Version of Cocoa Crispies – I loved that cereal as a kid! Although I’d hate for that to come off sounding pornographic. X-Rated Oatmeal? Nice.
Today’s mix was my standard:
- 1/2 c rolled oats
- 1 tsp of cocoa powder
- 1/4 c LF vanilla Stonyfield Farm yogurt
- About a 1/2 c of unsweetened chocolate almond milk.
Stirred and popped in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Or better yet let’s just call it an Oat Mess because that’s exactly what I made with the toppings this morning. Ground flax, sliced bananas, almond butter and granola. For once a mess I don’t mind cleaning up!
