For breakfast this morning, I had one of my absolute favorites – overnight oats in a peanut butter jar. So delicious!! I love using a nearly empty peanut butter jar as my overnight oat container. It’s really not that much different from a bowl but for some reason, oats just taste better when they are in a peanut butter jar.
For those of you who are not familiar with “oats in a jar”, allow me to introduce you to a tasty breakfast. It’s so easy. When you get to the end of a peanut butter jar (about one tablespoon of peanut butter remaining in the bottom), make your overnight oats in the jar.
I know that there are tons of overnight oat recipes floating around the internet but in case you’re curious, here’s how I make my oats:
Yesterday I completed my second 10 mile run. As my half marathon approaches, I’m trying to make sure my legs get used to longer distances while leaving enough time to taper right before the race. I’m realizing that fuel makes a huge difference in my ability to run longer distances. Making sure that I stretch, foam roll and consume protein after my run also helps a ton with my recovery.
Have you tried overnight oats?
If you’ve done a half marathon, what was your longest training run prior to the race?
