Sometimes I run and run and run, and crave something after that is sweet. But I just ran, so yes I could have chocolate cake for breakfast…but that would just undo everything I just did. So, I filled the “I’m starving, I want something a little sweeter and I am maybe a little lazy right now” void with a Banana-Nut Smoothie. It was quick, filling, fairly healthy, and good post-run refueling material. Protein, grain, carb, potassium…aaaallllll gooooood.
Not as good as chocolate cake. But good. This is definitely going in my weekday breakfast rotation!
1/2 cup quick oats
1/4 cup pecans
6 oz vanilla yogurt (Chobani is my absolute favorite!)
1 cup soy milk
makes 2 servings…or one if you ran really far.
