Ever since joining the lifestyle/foodie blogging world, I have been more and more enticed with breakfast. Before reading food blogs, I never knew how many meals one could make with oats, greek yogurt, and eggs. I now have a brand spankin’ new perspective of breakfast and how wonderful it can be. Yesterday I had one of those ‘I’m really, really sad this breakfast is over’ type of feeling once I was finished with my delicious creation. I knew I had to share it–I can’t keep something this good to myself. It’s just not right.
I call it Strawberry Shortcake in a Bowl and it couldn’t be easier to make:
-3/4 cup 0% plain greek yogurt
-about 5 sliced strawberries
-3 tbsp plain oats
-heaping tbsp light maple syrup (plus an extra drizzle on top)
Directions: Simply mix all ingredients together and drizzle some extra maple syrup on top. You only really need to put this in the fridge for an hour or two, so all of the ingredients can combine together.
This was soooo yummy and such a nice way to start the day! I also think it would be good to have some crumbled angel food cake.
Taking a different spin… this morning, I saw two young girls, and I mean like 10 years old, on the elliptical at my gym. I was kind of struck by this and found it so strange to see such young girls on a machine that seemed to dwarf them even more. Something about it just didn’t feel right. I’m a big advocate for having children run around in sports and play outside in order to keep their bodies moving, but on an elliptical? It just doesn’t seem right… what do you think?
Question of the Day: Have you ever seen young kids working out at the gym? What are your feelings about it?
