Yesterday I cooked up some pearled barley and refrigerated it to toss into my Greek yogurt this morning.
WOW! This combination was amazing! I loved the chewy, almost nutty flavor the cold barley added to my yogurt.
I topped the concoction with an Almondina Choconut almond cookie.
The choconut cookie added a little crunch and a nice touch of chocolatey sweetness. Add a hot cup of Yogi Mayan Cocoa Spice tea, and my breakfast was complete!
This bowl was surprisingly quite filling and should have no trouble holding me over until my mid-morning snack.
I love eating a filling whole-grain after a good workout. 🙂 This morning I woke up to the lovely beeps of my alarm and hit the gym bright and early for a 5:45 a.m. BodyPump (total-body weights) class, followed by 25 minutes on the elliptical and my daily 2.5 mile walk with the puppers.
I think Sadie is still a little pooped from yesterday’s run in the heat because she didn’t bring me any toys to throw for her as I was getting ready for work… highly unusual.
