Outstanding Overnight Oats

This morning I enjoyed my first-ever bowl of overnight oats that I’ve been meaning to try ever since I’ve read such wonderful things about them on many different foodie blogs, including Kath’s beautiful post on the yummy creation.

To make my oats, I combined old fashioned oats, a cup of Greek yogurt, canned pumpkin, sweetener and pumpkin pie spice and let the mixture sit overnight.

After spending the night in the fridge, the mix became extra thick and very creamy. Yum.

This is a creation I will definitely be trying again soon. Very, very tasty!

I love thick, creamy and super-filling breakfasts after a good ol’ workout. Since today is a cardio-only day for me, I completed a hodge-podge of cardio activities to keep my heart rate up. Here’s my morning cardio workout from today:

  • 5 min. warm up (incline walking, 4.2 pace, 4.0 incline)
  • 20 min. intervals on the treadmill (alternating sprinting one minute, walking two minutes)
  • 10 min. incline walking (4.2 pace, 7.0 incline)
  • 15 min. elliptical

Happy Tuesday everyone! :)

    I wish I liked oats a lot…I’ve never been THAT big of a fan! Glad you enjoyed them though–and your hair–always so jealous! :)

    Oh, and I heard on GMA this morning–back in the 80′s in Orlando! :(

    Ah, I love overnight oats! I cannot wait to have dairy back in my life (currently 2 weeks out on my contest diet). I wish I would have found your blog sooner! Love it! Have a great day!
