Anyway, at the moment I'm writing during a slow work period and hoping that I can make good work on the upcoming buffet lunch, especially since after a heavy weekend of eating, my stomach STILL feels kind of bad, as if it's scolding me for making it work so hard! I ran 7.5 miles yesterday despite a low level of cramping and am still waiting for the weekend weight to begin to drop. I'm also heading into work early for the next few days so I'm eating breakfast on site instead of waking up early to eat it at home.
Today could have used a little help but I blame the fruit.
Peaches N' Cream Overnight Oats
1/3 cup oats
1/4 cup Fage 0% Greek Yogurt (just because I had to use it up)
1/4 cup Dannon Light N' Fit Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 cup skim milk
100g (2/3 cup?) frozen peaches (microwaved, cut into little slices)
1 tsp chia seeds
1.5 tsp vanilla
Topped with 1/2 cup puffed millet
The consistency (made thicker by the Fage?) was amazing. Thick and creamy.
The millet gave it a nice porridge thickness once mixed in.
The peaches were eh....
Maybe if I had pureed them the flavor would have infused? Maybe if I had used the fresh stuff? I guess they were a little hard and just didn't give up their flavor as easily as blueberries/cranberries and didnt' have as strong a flavor as apples.
For the future I will A) use all vanilla yogurt
B) Vanilla Almond Breeze milk C) Will consider sweetener D) possibly puree the peaches
Either way, 300 calories of pure enjoyment (well usually, this could have been more dessert-y)
Wish me luck at lunch and hopefully my stomach will feel better so I don't hate the gym so much tonight!
