Delicious Morning

Good Morning! I’m happy to report that I actually did go to bed around 11pm last night and slept until a few minutes after 8. The sleeping until after 8 was unintentional, but I was proud of getting myself in bed early and clearly I needed the sleep. I’m feeling really refreshed and well rested today which is definitely a good way to approach the day. Plus, its Thursday, which means tomorrow is Friday aka start of the weekend!

Today’s breakfast was not too shabby, either. I threw together ingredients for one of Gina’s breakfast cookies last night and it turned out fabulous.

Into the mix went:

  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 scoop protein powder
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 2 tbsp light soy milk

What made this breakfast cookie so special was the mix-ins!

  • 1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 tbsp dark chocolate chunks
  • 5 dried strawberries, rough chopped

Presenting… The Chocolate Coconut Breakfast Cookie with Strawberries!

Ohhhh man was this good. I actually leave it in the fridge uncovered overnight because I think it dries it out a bit more and makes it more cookie like. I could pick pieces of this off the plate rather than having to spoon it up (obviously because I’m classy like that ;)). I looove this combo. Plus, if the chia seeds work the same as they did yesterday, I will be full for hours.

I also made an iced green tea to have with my breakfast cookie.

This is just as good as the ones at Starbucks and so much cheaper. I just did 2 green tea bags in a cup of hot water for 5 minutes, and then poured it over ice. Such a nice pick-me-up in the morning!

We have a team lunch today at Teaism because its our interns last day! Should be fun and this time I don’t have to shy away from snapping some pictures.

Have an awesome Tuesday!!

    I’ve had “prep a breakfast cookie” on my to-do list for the past 2 weeks and I still haven’t gotten around to it. Maybe today will be the day. Yours sure looks delicious 🙂

    I would LOVE to go to bed that early. I tend to stay up tiill 1 for no reason sometimes. Such a good idea with the homemade tea. I spend so much money on tea!

    I need to get some chia seeds! I have really been in to the iced tea lately too. I had an iced green tea at Starbucks this weekend. It was so tasty! I agree, it is so much cheaper at home!
