With my December goals in mind I decided to stop being such a baby and take my run outside. That bright blue sky and sunshine can be deceiving though… it was only 12°F out there! I guess that’s a great way to trick yourself into running faster (faster= warmer)! As soon as I walked through the door I was stripping off all those layers to put on some dry, warm clothes and started a pot of tea to warm me up.
If you’re intimidated by running in low temps check out Teri’s post over at A Foodie Stays Fit for some good winter running tips 🙂
Then it was time to feed my rumbling tummy with some clean eats.
Just what I needed! Something warm, filling and so delicious: Cinnamon Sweet Potato Oatcakes!
Makes 1 serving
1/3 cup oats
1 egg + 1 egg white
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp mashed, cooked sweet potato
Dash of cinnamon and tiny dash of sea salt
Mix it all up. Let it sit for about 5 minutes then cook in hot skillet over medium heat, flip and cook through. Top as desired.
Today I added a sprinkle of chia seeds to the batter, cooked them in coconut oil, then topped ’em with a few slices of banana, coconut butter, cinnamon and a yummy pumpkin mixture (pumpkin puree, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, stevia and vanilla).
Who knew eating clean could taste sooooo good?!
