Happy Monday Morning!
I kicked off my morning with a quick treadmill run. I need to recommit to getting my 5k time back under 30 minutes. Today I used the couch to 5k app for a little kick in the butt. I’m working on a monthly plan for June that will concentrate on building my core (mine needs LOTS of work) and speed. Although I’ve been doing much better with daily workouts I haven’t really been pushing myself the way I should. My philosophy is feeling the BURN this month. If you missed all the new transitions going on in my life this month you can read more here. One of the many changes will be having more AM time for workouts.
After the sweaty run I enjoyed this fabulous breakfast. Chobani Vanilla, blueberries, strawberries and some granola.
All mixed up in my favorite Mackenzie Child’s bowl! Doesn’t that granola look Delish? I made it myself! Last night I was combing through the grocery store looking for some new granola. When my search left me without any new options I decided to venture and make my own from what I had lying about the ole’ pantry.
Renee’s Easy Granola:
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 table spoon brown sugar
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons olive oil
Set aside the raisins. I mixed these all ingredients together in a large bowl. Make sure all the oats are covered.
Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Stir the mixture after 5 minutes and continue baking. Once removed from the oven add in the raisins stir and let cool.
Making granola was much easier that I thought. I’m going to have to try out some other granola recipes there is a peanut butter one out there that looks to die for!
