After being on vacation for 10 days sometimes it’s hard to get back into the groove of things. Monday morning actually went smoother than I thought it would.
I enjoyed a leisurely walk with Joe and a cup of joe in the early morning. Since Jacob was kind enough to endure my crazy early morning workout scheduled for the first half of P90X, I compromised and agreed to workout in the evenings when I get home from work. We are the opposites. I have more energy in the morning to exercise and he has more in the evening.
I hope this new schedule works out well for us. We’ll see how it goes for the next few weeks. I know Joe will enjoy it because he will get even more morning walks now lucky dog.
When we were home for a couple days during our vacation I made time for some prettier and super tasty breakfasts. Here’s one I really enjoyed.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Parfait
I layered chocolate oats and vanilla peanut butter goat yogurt. The decadent breakfast was topped off with some cocoa nibs for more chocolately goodness.
Chocolate oats: 1/3 cup oatmeal cooked in 2/3 cup water with 1/2 a frozen banana then 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder stirred in
Vanilla peanut butter goat yogurt: 3/4 cup plain goat yogurt mixed with 1 tsp vanilla extract + 1/2 tbsp agave + 1 tbsp peanut butter
There is something about having chocolate for breakfast that makes my day start out great. This breakfast kept me full from the awesome carb (oats), protein (yogurt) and fat (peanut butter) combo!
I also attempted to make goat yogurt in my crock pot following these directions from Nicole, but had a complete fail. The yogurt froze in my fridge while I was straining it! Boo! Maybe I will attempt this again sometime with better success.
