I think I am onto a new “breakfast phase” friends! As I have mentioned in previous posts, I often go through a phase where I eat the same thing for breakfast every morning. For awhile, it was PB&J on whole wheat toast. (Original, but obviously delicious.) Now it is definitely overnight oats. I discovered overnight oats (can also be known as oats in a jar) a few weeks back from some fellow healthy living bloggers. I made a Peanut Butter Cup version that was so yummy. I then became disappointed because (so I thought) I could only have my oats in a jar when I was close to an empty peanut butter jar (not often enough!). Then I realized I could put a dollop of peanut butter (or any nut butter) at the bottom of a big coffee mug or small bowl, pour my oats and some milk in it, put it in the fridge overnight, and there ya go! (duh Ashley!) Just like an original oats in a jar! When I discovered this fabulous idea, I was overjoyed! I can have my oats (in a jar) any time I want. Woohoo!
So who can take a guess on what breakfast was this morning? Ding ding! Oats in a
jar mug…you got it! Last night I put a tablespoon or two of Adam’s Natural Crunch Peanut Butter at the bottom of a wide rimmed coffee mug along with a packet of low sugar maple brown sugar oatmeal and about 1/4 cup of vanilla soymilk. I took it out this morning and topped it with a chopped up ripe banana, and it was de-lish! I think I might even like it better than my peanut butter cup version. (gasp!)
I paired it with a nice hot cup of coffee (in my signature “A” mug, of course), and I was a happy woman!
Have a great morning everyone! See ya in a few hours!
- Do you go through “breakfast phases”? Or any other “food phases”?
- What do you usually have for breakfast? Is it usually the same thing or do you mix it up?
