It’s not you at all! I’m just anxious about stuff for my new job that I have to do in about an hour and that spread over into everything else bc apparently my brain is Extra like that. I’m feeling better now that I’ve slept and eaten (pb and j overnight oats…. It’s so good!)

Anywho, thank you so much for this nice message 💚💚💚 it means so much. Have a lovely day!

Go-To Breakfast For Running: Pb & J Oats!

Peanut butter and jelly have been the light of my taste buds lately. This morning, I made a quick breakfast while I got ready for the gym. And you better believe it consisted of peanut butter and jelly! I usually use dark chocolate chips with my peanut butter, but decided to change things up! 

This is one of the easiest and quickest breakfasts you can make! (Other than milk and cereal) I prepared a one cup of whole grain oats with 1 ½ cups of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I added 1 packet of Stevia for a sweet kick. I made a couple hard boiled eggs on the side to add in more protein. 

I transferred the oats to a mug and topped it with 2 tbsp of grape jelly and 2 tbsp of all natural creamy peanut butter. 

The melted peanut butter and jelly mixed in with the oats tasted decadent. It’s crazy how the simplest food combinations can taste incredible. Oatmeal is my go-to breakfast before running long distance. (7.5 mi) The complex carbohydrates provide the perfect amount of energy to keep me going.

“But I find at this point in my life that I really value the finite, the particular, the personal, the quirky, the secular. I don’t want “eternity”—I want time. Whatever is, is. I don’t care if it’s right or wrong or vulgar or pointless or even healthy. I want it simply because it is; and because it won’t last.”         -Joyce Carol Oates
