Today is the day of my first half marathon. My nerves are running rampant so hopefully by the time you read this, I will have FINISHED the half. That’s my goal- to finish. I don’t need to set any records, because quite frankly just finishing it is record enough for me.
So anyway, today’s challenge is Make a New Breakfast Recipe. I will be making mine AFTER the half and here is the recipe I will use:
- 1 1/2 tablespoons nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh or dried pomegranate seeds
- 1 tablespoon dark chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
Prepare 1 cup of steel-cut oatmeal and then add the toppings above. I found this recipe in Self magazine in February of last year and have been wanting to try it ever since. Today is the day! Although I may have more than one serving, because I anticipate I will be starving after the race. I cannot run on a full stomach so will be having a very light bite before.
What new breakfast recipe will you try? Don’t feel like you have to spend hours upon hours in the kitchen. Play around with your favorite breakfast recipe and tweak it a tad. Or make a breakfast casserole that you have been eyeing lately. Ever wanted to try a healthier version of cinnamon rolls? Take a look at this recipe from the Nutrition Twins. Yum! I will have to try these someday.
