This is exactly how I felt getting out of bed this morning:
Don’t you ever have those days where its an epic battle to wake up? I swear I hit the snooze button 5 times today. I just couldn’t bring myself to getting out of the sublime comfort of my sheets to face the reality of a workday. But then I remembered two things:
1) Its the Friday before a long weekend! Which means that before I know it I’ll be heading up to my friend’s cottage where you can sleep as much as you want…even if its just in a lawn chair 🙂
2) I had put something special in the fridge for breakfast.
After hearing about these so-called Overnight Oats everywhere on blogs, I decided to give them a try.
Before I went to bed last night, I mixed together:
1/3 cup Oats
1/3 cup Skim Milk
1/3 cup Non-Fat Plain Yogurt
1 ripe Banana, sliced.
When I finally dragged myself out of bed this morning, I found that it was a big bowl of creamy deliciousness just waiting from me in the fridge. Then it was just a matter of washing some fresh raspberries, drizzling on some honey and sprinkling on a bit of Special K Satisfaction (one of my favorite cereals).
