Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal is the best way to start off your day. This easy, healthy breakfast will keep you full throughout the day! This post is sponsored by PB8 but all opinions are my own.
Raise your hand if you think that morning routines are 100% necessary. Is your hand raised? I’m practically coming out of my seat with both hands held high! I’m such a routine-oriented person. I have my set methods/processes, and I like to stick to them. My mornings usually go something like this…
Alarm goes off. I hit snooze (twice… I’ll admit) before finally dragging my butt out of bed. From there, I get my cup of coffee (auto-brew is the best thing EVER), and then I’ll go one of two routes. If I’m working out, it’s work out clothes on + straight to the gym.
If I’m not working out, it’s right to my computer + get to work. My mind is always fresh when I first wake up, and over the past few months I’ve noticed I do my best work first thing in the morning as opposed to later in the evening when I’m burnt out.
Whether I work out or not, before I leave the house, I have to drink my water + take my supplements. It’s so engrained in my routine that it’s weird if I don’t take them! Depending on the season and how I’m feeling I take various supplements. Right now I’ve been taking Vitamin C since I’ve been getting over being sick, and it seems like everyone around me is coughing away!
Even though my supplement line up tends to vary – there are a few things that I always take. Vitamin D (I’m low in it regardless of what I do, it’s a genetic thing), Magnesium (also deficient + I believe that it helps me to relax/sleep), Beef Liver Capsules (they’re filled with the good stuff), and Probiotics (Because.. Hi, digestive health is important!!)
I didn’t really know much about probiotics until I was getting severely bloated a year or so ago. I felt like junk, and didn’t know why. After working with a trainer, I narrowed it down, adjusted my diet and added probiotics to the mix. I was like a new person!
Now, I’m really interested in gut health + digestion. I eat a lot of fermented foods which helps my digestion (kombucha is my favorite!), and probiotics are a necessity. I’ve tried a lot of brands, so when PB8 reached out and asked if we wanted to test theirs out I was eager to see how they worked.
I was super impressed with the ingredients in these because they have all the things that I was familiar with which I really liked. After using them for 3 weeks, I can confidently say that these are some of the best probiotics I’ve tried. They’re awesome!
Now… one other thing that is vital to my morning routines are delish breakfasts! This Chocolate Peanut Butter Baked Oatmeal is my latest baked oatmeal creation, and I think it’s my best one yet (with this Healthy Coffee Chocolate Baked Oatmeal coming in at a close second). Chocolate and peanut butter is just the best combination, and when you bake it with oats it almost makes breakfast feel like dessert!
