Even though the holidays are officially over, I still crave the reminiscent flavors of eggnog, gingerbread, and sugar cookies. Which inspired quite a scrumptious breakfast this morning. I ate mine cold, but a quick minute in the microwave would do the trick for a warming bowl of gingerbread oats. I just think warming up overnight oats makes the flavor a little off for me, so I stick to their cold counterparts and warm up with a cuppa tea instead. But to each his own...
Overnight Gingerbread Oats
1/2 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
pinch ground clove
1 tsp stevia (or preferred sweetener)
1 tsp ground flax seed (optional)
1/3 cup plain low-fat yogurt
1/3 cup soy milk ( or milk of choice)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl (or in my case a near empty pb jar!) and place in the fridge overnight.
The next morning I 'loosen everything up' by adding a couple tablespoons of some hot water from the teapot. Topped with some raw oats and dash of cinnamon and your ready to relive the holiday goodness with out the guilt!
post, you probably think I'm cray-cray) with an upper body workout from Glamour magazine, and a heart-pumping cardio circuit I made up. Here's what it looked like:
15 reps, 3 sets of each circuit. Complete 3 sets of each circuit before moving to the next.
Bent over rows
Single bent over rows
I then completed this cardio circuit which was a killer!
Perform each exercise for 30 seconds. Complete entire circuit 2 times, resting in between for a total of 10 minutes.
Now off for roomie movie night, or as I just renamed it roovie night!
