What a day! Let’s start with Breakfast. It was all about the cinnamon this morning! Here’s what I came up with:
Overnight Apple Cinnamon Oats
3/4 cup of oats
1/2 cup of milk ( I chose vanilla almond of course!)
1 1/2 tablespoon of apple butter
2 teaspoons of brown sugar ( I used honey as a substitute)
mix ingredients all together and leave in fridge overnight
In the morning:
splash oats with a little more milk to get everything moving
Cut up 1/2 an apple, add as topping
sprinkle cinnamon to finish!
The apple butter really gave the oats a nice flavor, I would also suggest using peanut butter! The oats were yummy and filling! I paired the oats with a delicious cup of coffee topped with foamy almond milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon (to go with my cinnamon kick!).
Oats will definitely be a regular breakfast food- you can do so much with them!
I spent the entire afternoon in class so an on-the-go lunch was necessary. I packed my beautiful new almond milk yogurt vanilla flavored.
I was really surprised at how filling this was. I paired it with some organic banana chips and a protein smoothie.
The protein smoothie was really simple:
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 cup vanilla almond milk
lots and lots of ice
It was more of a slushy!
For my afternoon workout, I wanted to work my upper body to give my legs a rest! They have been doing a lot of work these last few days! Especially after my Abs Glutes and Thighs workout!
My workout started with 30 minutes on the elliptical and then a nice S-T-R-E-T-C-H. I followed with this:
It was quick but it did what I needed it to- to work out the arms!
Hope your day was productive!
I have been thinking about making a Facebook for Short and Healthy. Do other bloggers find it very helpful? Or should I just stick with Twitter??
