This week, I started eating before I run more often than I have been in the last few weeks.The first day I ate before my morning run (cereal and 1/2 banana), I noticed that I didn't have the usual heavy legs in my first or second mile. After having the same thing happen many times, I think that eating first makes me feel better. I've been enjoying my small pre-run breakfasts and my morning runs without heavy legs!
Food I Ate This Week
I have a Pinterest board for recipes that I want to try in the future. I have almost 100 recipes on my Pinterest "Recipes to Try" board. After I try a recipe that I like, I put it on one of my other boards like "Cookies" or "Salads & Vegetables". Here are some foods that I enjoyed this week. You could eat them for breakfast or any time you like!
Single Serving Microwave Granola - Good when you'd like a small amount of granola in a hurry.

Spiced Pumpkin & Oats
I wanted to use up the small amount of pumpkin I had left so I stirred together: 1/4 cup each canned pumpkin and oats and a little bit of pumpkin pie spices, raisins, pecans, orange juice and maple syrup. The orange flavor with the pumpkin tastes surprisingly good.
After making that, I saw this: Pumpkin Bread in a Bowl. That sounds good, too, so I pinned it. It looks like I'll never whittle away all of the recipes on my "Recipes to Try" Board!
