Sweet Potato Pie Breakfast

Posted on

This morning was another early start because I began teaching my own spinning class this morning.  That’s right, my own.  Finally, I am not just subbing for another instructor…this is my class and I can do what I want with it!  I am so excited 🙂

Because I knew I was going to lift some weights and run a couple of errands after spin, I knew it would be in my best interest to eat breakfast before the class, so last night I prepped a batch of overnight oats with a new-to-me ingredient….sweet potatoes.

Last night I mixed:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 2 oz of sweet potato baby food
  • 1 scoop vanilla Plant Fusion protein powder
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • stevia powder

This morning I added 1 tablespoon of nonfat plain Greek yogurt and 1/3 of a banana.  These oats were delicious and reminded me of sweet potato casserole on Thanksgiving.  Sweet potatoes are a great source of beta-carotene which is good for your eyes, skin, and immune system and vitamin A.

I had plenty of energy without feeling too full for my spinning class.  I simply ate them early enough to allow about an hour for digestion.

Workout

After spin, I lifted weights focusing on my arms.

This is the perfect workout to do either right before or right after your cardio session.  The whole set of exercises takes between 20 and 30 minutes, but the supersetting  of exercises definitely saves time.

Hitting the Road

Later today, Brian and I are heading to Fort Wayne for a fun and unique opportunity…here is a hint as to what I will be up to tomorrow morning.

Have a great Tuesday!
