Rainy Day

by Meghann on June 7, 2012

Good Morning!

I’m going to make this short and sweet. Lots to do today and very little time to do it in. The good news is we have a big announcement coming this afternoon for Healthy Living Summit, so stay tuned! πŸ˜‰

I planned to get up super early for the 5:15am spinning class, but failed miserably. Setting my clock for 4:30 just seemed unnatural when I went to bed at 11:30 last night. Ugh. Not cool. So I hit canceled and just woke up at my regularly scheduled 6:00am alarm instead. I need to work on going to bed at a decent time again, I’ve fallen into a habit of staying up late and it’s a habit I desperately need to break.

So instead of spinning, I just went for a quick 4 mile run around the block. Next week I plan to start my faster 5k/10k training plan, so I’m soaking up the casual, easy runs while I can. πŸ™‚

Post-breakfast I made a bowl of hot apples for breakfast. It was raining and hot apples just seemed like the best comfort food for a rainy morning.


The base was a large fuji apple that I heated up with cinnamon in the microwave, then I topped it with the last of a bag of Kashi Go Lean Crisp, PB2, Walnuts, and a dollop of Vanilla Chobani as my “whipped cream.”


Kinda, sorta like an apple crumble?


What’s your favorite comfort breakfast food when it’s raining outside? Hot apples are great, but a big bowl of oatmeal is amazing while it’s raining as well. πŸ™‚

And I’m off!

Hmm, I would say a bowl of hot oatmeal with brown sugar and cinnamon screams comfort food to me. Anything warm on a rainy morning is the perfect way to go!

If it’s rainy and cold we usually go the oatmeal or eggs and grits route. Man, I wish it was cold and rainy. 90* in Los Angeles today.

Anything warm and toasty on a rainy day. However I like hot oatmeal even when it’s 90 degrees!

Can’t wait for the HLS announcement!

your breakfast looks delicious! I can’t wait to hear more about the HLS, I really want to go (and go ahead and book a flight since it’s only in a bit over 2 months!!!) but I want to get registered first!

When it’s chilly outside, oatmeal is my go-to breakfast. I tend to drink more coffee during a cold morning, too πŸ™‚
