and eat!

To paraphrase my husband, everybody starts out their blogging adventure with all these great ideas about what to write, and then they end up saying what they had for breakfast.

Well I say, “why wait?” – I’m going to tell you about my new favorite breakfast NOW!  Well, not so new:  a friend of mine turned me onto this delicious, nutritious (?) Overnight, No-Cook, Refrigerator Oatmeal a couple months ago and I’ve been hooked every since.  Although I’m not vegan, I’m not that crazy about milk, so I veganize the recipe by substituting soy yogurt for the greek yogurt , and I use soymilk instead of regular milk.  AND since I recently made cranberry-applesauce, I’m using that in place of the jam for now.  I don’t add fruit – it’s a mouthfeel thing, I think – but I’m sure that would be tasty.  The basic recipe is extremely adaptable; I pretty much follow the Raspberry Vanilla one with some variations.   Play w/the add-ins!  Enjoy.

Swim:  I made it through 3500 yds of masters practice last night.  Got out a little early.  I’m hoping my shoulder can tolerate shorter workouts more often, better than longer practices less often.

Bike:  Wimp that I am, it’s getting too cold for me to ride outdoors, so I’m planning to go to at least a couple spin classes every week.  If that fails, I guess I could get on my trainer…

Run:  I actually ran yesterday!  I might even do it again someday.

Happy Thanksgiving!
