Up and at ’em

Breakfast, as my father used to remind me every morning, is the most important meal of the day.  It is also a meal I have yet to address in my (limited) food posts.  This is probably because most mornings I am up at 4:45 and out the door by 5am to coach.  No time to cook.  What to do?

Meet the Pursuit of Healthfulness blog and this recipe, which is a step up from a Luna bar.

1 container non-fat vanilla yogurt
1/4 C oats
1 apple
1 T peanut butter

Night before:  Wash and dice the apple. Place in microwave-safe bowl and mix with sprinkle of cinnamon and dash of vanilla. Microwave for about 2 minutes, or until apple is at desired tenderness. Allow to cool slightly.
In another bowl, mix yogurt and oats. Stir in cooled apples. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Morning:  Remove oats from refrigerator, stir in peanut butter and sprinkle with a bit more cinnamon.  The peanut butter and oats give it some weight, it’s a nice pasty, filling combo.  Two thumbs up.
