Reclaim & Revolt, Day 25

Reclaim & Revolt, Day 25

It was cake day today! But more on that in a few. This morning, I woke up, had another no-bake oat bar, and ran 4 miles. It was warmer today, and the run was lovely. After my run, I had this awesome bowl of Warm Oats & Nice Cream — banana soft serve with chocolate hemp protein powder topped with oats (sweetened with maple), chocolate PB2 sauce, and cacao nibs. The PB2 sauce and nice cream were the same color, so you can't really see the sauce. I love how the hot oats made the soft serve all melty.
