The problem with living in a summer vacation destination is that it becomes over run with people. That’s why I love september…less tourists and less traffic, Cape Cod is ours to enjoy again! We spent the weekend enjoying the crisp blue skies and visiting with friends and family.
I also managed to sneak in a little running. I completed my “long run” for the week, 11 miles! I’m feeling ready for the Cape Cod Zooma Half Marathon coming up on Sept. 28! Originally, I set a goal for myself of averaging 9:30 minute miles. On this past run, I surprisingly broke my goal and ran an average of 9:10 minute miles! I have a new goal now of completing the half marathon with 9 minute miles…wish me luck!
I had a Zico Chocolate Coconut water waiting for me at the end of the run, which tasted so good! I also had a bowl of coconut yogurt with a blueberry chiapod and cashews for a recovery snack.
This combo led me to the idea of making blueberry overnight oats…
I used dates and vanilla to give the oats a sweet flavor without added sugar. They tasted pretty good! Just like my pumpkin pie overnight oats, I don’t mind having pie for breakfast

1/2 cup fresh blueberries

-Add almond milk, blueberries, dates, vanilla and cinnamon to a blender and blend until blueberries are pureed.
-In a large bowl, stir together oats, chia seeds and almond milk mixture.

Hoping you all had a great weekend too!
