My legs were really feeling tight this morning during my 5 mile run. I kept the pace easy and tried not to push it too hard. I also spent a good 10 minutes stretching out my legs back at the apartment before jumping into some crunches and other core work.
Let’s hope a day of rest tomorrow and a nice long yoga session will help heal my aching muscles for their 20 mile run on Saturday!
After stretching and showering a nice big breakfast cookie was waiting for me in the fridge. Yum!
This is a very special breakfast cookie made possible by the wonderful people at Blue Mountain Organics who sent me a plethora of raw treats to sample.
Blue Mountain Organics is an importer, manufacturer & wholesale distributor of raw, organic, and whole foods. We are founded on the principles of promoting fair trade while providing premium quality organic and natural products to our customers.
Their three brands: Better Than Roasted, The Raw Bakery and love Raw Food all promote organic, raw food that all look and sound amazing.
When I got the package and saw the many trail mixes, nut butters and raw nuts I immediately thought how wonderful these would all be incorporated into a breakfast cookie so I selected the two that jumped out at me the most for this morning’s creation.
First up: Mystic Mountain Trail Mix
This mix is a combination of Almonds, Pecans, Cranberries, Golden Hunza Raisins, & Mulberries. I took a tablespoon from the mix and broke up the nuts for easy blending in the cookie.
Second: 4 Nuts Butter
A nut butter with four nuts? I’m sold! This one contained Almonds, Cashews, Pecans & Walnuts. I admit the taste gets buried in the cookie, so I can’t wait to try this on the own.
Here is the breakdown of all the breakfast cookie ingredients
- 1/2 cup Country Organic Multigrain Cereal
- 1 oz Mystic Mountain Trail Mix
- 1 spoonful 4 Nuts Butter
- Sprinkle Chocolate Chips
- 2 spoonfuls Apple Sauce
I combined all of the above and let it come together in the fridge over night.
This morning I then spread a generous layer of Vanilla Non-Fat Yogurt on top with some Strawberries and Blueberries.
I seriously love these breakfast cookies and thanks to the additional Blue Mountain Organic ingredients this one was another winner. 🙂
Wait… what was that? You want to try some of these products too?!?!
hmmmm…… well ok!
