Eggnog Overnight Oats

Oh my gosh do I have an amazing breakfast to share with you this morning!

Last night after dinner, a package was delivered to our house that included a bottle of eggnog from the wonderful people at Bolthouse Farms.

The eggnog is all natural and has less fat and calories than typical eggnog, yet somehow still tastes as rich and delicious as full-fat eggnog. I’m sold!

After taking a big gulp of the eggnog last night, I had an idea.

Eggnog overnight oats!

Before going to bed I combined the following ingredients in a Tupperware container and let them soak in the fridge overnight:

  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 6 ounces 2 percent Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup eggnog

This morning I added a sliced banana to the mix, poured a bit of almond milk overtop of the oats to make them a little less thick and sprinkled them with nutmeg before digging in.

What a winner! This breakfast tasted like the holidays in a bowl.

I am a little tempted to make another batch right now so I can enjoy them again for lunch.

Workout

Before breakfast, Ryan and I tackled a Friday morning workout that began with 20 minutes on the adaptive motion trainer.

I followed up my little cardio session with an upper body workout that resembled last Friday’s workout

The real excitement happened on our way home from the gym.

We saw a coyote!

This is actually the second coyote I’ve seen since we moved to Ocala. (I saw my first one on the way to my friend Carrie’s baby shower.)

They are such beautiful animals, but seeing them so close to our house makes me feel even more grateful that nothing happened to Sadie the morning that she went missing and I nearly had a heart attack.

Question of the Morning

  • What is the coolest animal you’ve seen in the wild?
