Back and at ’em!

Whew! Back to school this year was a rough one. It took me almost a month to get back into the swing of things. In early August I started three huge things all at the same time: teaching, grad school, and Cross Fit.

Before I started eating Paleo (weekdays), I made the most amazing oat parfait I have ever made.

Behold, Carrot Cake Oat Partfait:

What you’ll need:

 1/3 c Oats

1 c Water

1/4 c Shredded Carrots

1 tsp Cinnamon

2 Egg Whites

2 tsp Vanilla

1 T Chia Seeds

Stevia

1Plain Greek Yogurt

Pecans

Directions: In a pot bring water to a boil. Add oats, cinnamon, and carrots. Let cook. Once oats are cooked, removed from heat for 2 minutes. Add egg whites and return to low heat to allow egg whites to cook. Depending on how sweet you like it, add stevia to taste ( I used 5 drops), 1 tsp Vanilla, and chia seeds. For the yogurt, mix greek yogurt (I used Fage), 1 tsp Vanilla, and Stevia to taste. You may want to add more Vanilla depending on how you like it. Layer oats and yogurt in a container and let chill overnight. Top with pecans in the morning. You’re in for a treat!

It was like having cake for breakfast!
