Just a quick note before heading out the door to yet another 5k race this morning. My sister and I have half-jokingly stated that we’re becoming obsessed with these 5ks, but they’re just so fun. It’s a little like waking up on Christmas morning. You know. Rolling out of bed. No makeup. Excitement, adrenaline in the air.
Of course, without breakfast, there is no race.
Along with being obsessed with 5k races, I’m also obsessed with blueberries.
They’re in season right now…grab ‘em while you still can!
1/4 cup oatbran
1 cup silk coconut milk
1/2 c. blueberries
Oatbran + Milk + Cinnamon: cook in microwave for 5 minutes, stir, and top with blueberries
I like to keep my 5k breakfasts semi-light feeling, and then follow it with a heavier snack post-race. But if you’re looking for a breakfast to keep you full all morning long, add in some almond butter or sunflower seeds or walnuts.
And there you have it. A breakfast of champions. Or at least a breakfast worthy of running a 5k.
