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. ;)
