Savory vs. Sweet

Posted on February 9, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I FINALLY made savory oats last night and man were they delicious. This is definitely going to be another dinner staple moving forward. It was super easy and quick to make, healthy and delicious. My bowl contained sauteed onions, wilted spinach, 1/4 cup quick-cooked oats, nutritional yeast, red pepper flakes, some Annie’s Organic BBQ sauce and a sunny-side up egg. All of that combined was full of flavor and felt like I was eating a decadent bowl of comfort food. Who says you can only eat sweet oatmeal for breakfast? Actually, I think no one. Dinner win!

Right before I dug in!

Even though it was a cold, rainy night my co-worker and I pushed ourselves out the door and managed to get in a nice 5.5 mile run. We originally wanted to do 6 miles and then were feeling so blah we decided on 5, so we ended up meeting right in the middle! We weren’t speedy but we did some good mileage and got a run in on a crappy night when we were tired.

While we were running on the mall, it was dark and quiet and we passed three people running and one woman shouted at us, “Great job, ladies!” We both gave our own quick responses and I felt like gained a pep in our step. It’s a great reminder that we are really part of a community when it comes to running and training for races and I love it.

I finished the night with some hot chocolate and a great episode of L&O:SVU.
