As soon as I am done stretching I make a big glass of 1% milk with Ovaltine. Then I whip up a bowl of this wonderful concoction. :)
|Erin's fabulous post-run oatmeal|
-one whole banana, chopped up
-about half a cup of berries (blueberries are my favorite, today was a mix). In the winter I use frozen berries.
- about a 1/4 cup of raisins
- a handful of some kind of chopped nuts (today was pecans)
- a handful of chocolate chips (because come on... chocolate chips make everything better, right?)
Josh contends that it is no longer oatmeal by the time I get done adding everything to it, but I love it. I crave it when I am done running. It keeps me full for quite a while and it is pretty darn yummy too. The only time I eat "plain" oatmeal is before a marathon.
So what do you think? Does it look good? Gross? What is your "breakfast of champions"?
PS I got 8 miles done this morning and have 17 to do tomorrow. Fingers and toes are crossed that the roads will be clear enough to run outside!!
