Swapping Rest Days

by Meghann on December 4, 2009

Good Morning Lovelies!

I have a product kick off meeting to get to at 9:00 am and need to make this quick!

I traded in my usual Friday rest day this morning for a 4 mile run. The run was originally planned for tomorrow, but due to the early start of my family’s christmas caravan I knew I wouldn’t have time.

The 4 miles was great. It was pretty cool and a little rainy – perfect running weather.

Last night I had prepped a bowl of overnight oats that was waiting for me when I finished making myself pretty.


My overnight oats consisted of

  • 1/2 cup of Oats
  • Plain Oikos
  • A big scoop of Almond Butter
  • Crushed Hazel Nuts
  • Raisins
  • Cinnamons


I topped my oats with 1/2 an Apple, a touch of Cranberry Sauce, and a sprinkle of Flax.



Don’t Forget…

I have a question about overnight oats – do you cook them?? Or are they quick oats mixed with everything and put in the fridge overnight and heated in the morning? They look so good!

14 Mel December 4, 2009 at 11:15 am

I can never get overnight oats right, but yours look super yummy after you added all the toppings.

I’ve never tried overnight oats, I guess I hadn’t really realized that it’s uncooked. Could be delicious!

Hey–what is your job?? I saw you were talking about pasta–is it related to food? You’re SO lucky you can go home for lunch too!

22 Sarah December 4, 2009 at 8:14 pm

Those oats look amazing! I have a question about overnight oats….do you typically eat them cold, right out of the fridge? Or do you heat them up in the microwave? Just curious! I have not tried overnight oats that are cold, I just can’t part with the warm stickiness!
