Simply Breakfast

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

cinnamon

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. ;)

QUESTION: What is your favorite summer-time fruit?

  1. “Rolling out of bed. No makeup.” What if I was really bad and rolled out of bed ‘with’ my makeup? Ha! It’s just that I was too tired to wash my face before bed last night. Ugh, I know, SO bad! But that being said I’M SO EXCITED! :)

  2. What are the chances I can convince you and your sister to do the Hot Chocolate 5k/15k in Chicago in November? I haven’t registered yet, but I’m about 99% sure my sister and I are doing it. It looks like lots of fun. You need an excuse to go to Chicago right?
