Overnight Oats & 5 Miles On The Horizon

Last night I decided to make overnight oats.  I've seen a few people post about it.  I looked up some recipes online and came up with this one (I used flax seeds instead of chia seeds).

3/4 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 TBSP natural peanut butter (I use Smucker's)
1 TBSP raw honey (I use Trader Joe's)
1 tsp flax seed

Mix and refrigerate over night.  This morning, I added about 2 more TBSP almond milk and warmed up the oatmeal.  It came out really good!  This made enough for 3-4 servings.  I had one egg also.

I haven't food shopped in a couple of weeks!  Well a BIG shop, anyway.  Last night we ate out and tonight, well, I took some ground beef out of the freezer so maybe a burger with whatever frozen vegetables we have, lol.  Sometimes it's good to clean out the fridge/freezer/pantry I guess.

I'm still pretty sore from Sunday's run but tonight is 5 miles.  Seems easy but we'll see.  My legs are real stiff.  Then 5 miles again on Thursday but we might do it Friday. 

On a side note, do you have a favorite all inclusive resort you like to go to, in the Caribbean or Mexico?  Feel free to share!  Thanks  and enjoy your day... I just went out at lunch time and it's 85 degrees here 20 miles west of NYC.  Nice!!


  1. Are we going on vacation soon? I'm going to crash your vacation if you are. :)
