I finally discovered a breakfast that had me feeling full and energized hours later when I decided to go for a run. I made a lowfat granola recipe that I got from my fabulous friend Jenny. Just google 'low fat granola recipe' and you'll have a million to choose from, just add a combination of whatever seeds, nuts or dried fruits you like. I used almonds, coconut and flax seed - yummo!
For the ultimate breakfast, send your freshly-wakened moppets out to pick some raspberries fresh from the garden. Sweeten the fruit with a tiny bit of sugar. Alternately layer fruit with non-fat yogurt. Top with your granola and viola! Who doesn't love them some parfait?
Oh and I ran 2.5 miles on the canal trail below our house. The first mile felt great - loose, easy and my heart rate stayed low. The second mile was my turn to push 90+ pounds of kids and jog stroller and it was more of a beating. I was totally feeling it the next day in my back and triceps.
And of course Joe had to make me feel like a wimp by running 5 more miles after I stopped and making it look like a stroll in the park.
PS: speaking of getting out this summer, Vanilla Joy is giving away a Shade swimsuit this week. Head on over and enter to win!
