Thanks to some warm air and the fact that it’s Saturday and no one is rushing off to work at 8 AM, I got to head out for my run well after the sun was up this morning. Some where around the 9 o’clock hour I hit the pavement and had a glorious 54 minutes and 6.25 miles to all myself. Well, good old Jillian was with me too, but she doesn’t count.
Before I left I put together some pumpkin overnight oats knowing they’d be ready to eat by the time I got back. Given I put them together this morning, I guess I should technically call these Over Run Pumpkin Pie Oats.
1/3 smashed banana with about a half cup of pumpkin puree, a tablespoon of almond butter, 1/2 c rolled oats and about a 1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla hemp milk. A little cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger and into the fridge for the duration of my run and clothes changing.
Oops I meant to add ground flax!
The oats were still a little chewy and it probably would have been better to stick with “Over Night” instead of “Over Run” but I managed. The pumpkin added a lot of volume. By the time I was out of banana and flax I tossed the remaining 1/3 of over run oat mixture into the compost bucket. It was good but I’m working a little harder these days to pay attention to how I’m feeling at the end of a meal and remind myself that I don’t have to clean my plate or bowl if I’m no longer hungry.
A Fun Announcement!
