Summer is finally here :)

So school ended yesterday, and to celebrate, i ran 5 miles, then i rode bikes with a friend for four miles, and then, we swam a bunch.  I basically passed out last night lol.  So, we’ve sort of started the gluten-free thing (it’s really more of a low-gluten thing), and so far, i think it’s good.  I’ve started drinking more smoothies (that inevitably have coconut milk and peanut butter in them), eating more salads, and eating plenty of larabars 🙂 (as well as more delicious stuff).

Yesterday, for breakfast, I had something I’ve been wanting to try for a long while:

Overnight Oats 🙂

Yummy 🙂 Great for a hot day

Ingredients included:

-1/2 cup of oats
-1 cup of non-dairy milk (I used coconut :P)
-Any ingredients you so desire in your oatmeal (I put in peanut butter and flax seed).
Steps:
1. Mix up the oats and milk
2. Put a little plastic bag over it, and set it in the fridge overnight
3. Finally, in the morning, take it out and put in your favorite oatmeal toppings.
Our airconditioning is broken so i really wanted something cool for breakfast as well as oatmeal, but how to solve this problem?
Overnight Oats 🙂
Soon, I’m gonna try my hand at gluten-free bread and other such desserts, and if gluten turns out to be the problem, then, we’ll just eat low-gluten and not give it up completely because, I mean, it’s difficult enough to find vegan items, not to mention gluten-free.
Well, I have an eventful summer in my midst– running 300 miles, going to Kings Island, swimming, cross country camp… I’m so excited!
What do you have planned for summer?
