Overnight oats: success! Planning well for workout: fail!

Last night I made overnight oats for the first time.  I'd been reading about them for forever and never had the nerve to try them but last night I decided I was bored of granola, yogurt and frozen blueberries.  I wanted to keep it simple my first time but I took the plunge and now see speedy breakfasts in my future!

My Plain Jane Overnight Oats had:
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1/2 cup of plain Horizon yogurt (just can't seem to join the Greek fan club!)
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 of a super ripe banana
4 or 5 strawberries

I have to admit when first looking at this mixture I thought I should add more oats and maybe a squirt of agave but resisted.  So glad!  These turned out so good!  The texture was perfect and the fruit was just sweet enough.  I used regular milk cause that's the only thing I had but I think I should try some almond milk next time.  And I want to try it with pumpkin!  Possibilities...

Last night my friend that I'm doing the training group with and I made a plan to meet up before the group.  I'm in a training all week that keeps me later than normal so I told him I would bring my stuff with me to work and go straight there.  Well...  I got all my stuff together last night, looped the bag on my front door knob, and left it there!  I mean, I touched it as I was leaving!  So now I'll be having a nice workout at home sans friend.  It's ok, I'm sure CutCut will appreciate the company...

  1. Yay for a success on the oats! I still have not tried those b/c I think I would hate the consistency. Is it as ultra mushy as I think or more like cold creamy oatmeal? The ingredients list make it seem really yummy, I may just have to give in!
