After drinking some seltzer water to calm my tummy down and a good night’s sleep I was up roaring and ready to go for my longer run this morning. I was itching to do some distance and planned a 7 mile run before work.
The whole 7 miles I felt great. I kept it at an easy pace and finished in 1:08:36. I just went with the flow of the morning and took the time to hash out life in my head. I always find the ‘thump, thump, thump’ of my feet on the pavement so soothing and therapeutic. If I had the time I felt I could have kept running for hours.
I am crossing my fingers I can squeeze a 10 miler in this weekend. After taking a break from the longer distances since my marathon, I forgot how much I really enjoy them and that great runner’s high I get afterwards. Even now at my work desk I feel calm, cool & collected thanks to my morning run. 🙂
I hit the bottom of my almond butter jar yesterday.
Normally this would have been a heart breaking tragedy, but ever since I saw Heather’s Almond Jar Oats the other month I have been waiting to get just the right amount to try it out my self.
Last night I made a muesli mix of
- 1/2 cup Hot Multigrain Cereal
- Almond Milk
- Plain Oikos Yogurt
- Chia Seeds
- Dried Goji Berries
- Crushed Almonds
- Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
I then placed the mix in the Almond Butter Jar and let it sit over night.
I know it doesn’t necessarily look appealing, but trust me it’s good. I like my muesli extra thick, but if you prefer it thinner just add more milk.
I did add a Kiwi and some Blueberries to the mix as well. I think that helped make it prettier. 🙂
The results were amazing!! I loved scraping a little almond butter off the side of the jar with each bite. If you’re getting to a bottom of a jar I would suggest trying this out yourself.
I polished the jar off, not leaving any almond butter to waste. 🙂
Now all I need to do is restock my almond butter supply. I have a fridge full of various nut butters but there is something about my Whole Foods Chunky Roasted Almond Butter that I always gravitate too. It’s too good!
