Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in mommyhood, adulthood, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Healthy Eats: Overnight Oats

I hate getting comfortable in bed, iPad in hand and ready to read my book, when I realize I haven't made my breakfast for the following day.

This is where overnight oats comes in. Just a few simple ingredients thrown together in my cute little (perfect-for-breakfast-sized) food container from Ichiban, put it in the fridge overnight. The next morning I pop it in the microwave for a minute, and its ready to go!

(I forget where I picked up the original recipe, but I made my own variation anyway)
Ingredients:
Rolled Oats
Almond Milk (or any milk of your choice)
Flaxseed Meal (or just regular Flaxseeds)
Chia seeds
Cinnamon
*Optional: Stevia or other sugar substitute, or agave

Unfortunately I don't have exact measurements, I just eyeballed it because my container is pretty small. I do remember most recipes called for at least 1/3 C of the rolled oats and the almond milk.

This breakfast is great because it's very high in fiber, contains protein and the good carbs to get you going, but I still eat two hard boiled eggs with it because I definitely need the protein. But that's it! You can add some granola or sliced almonds (like I do) the next day, some berries too if you like. It's so simple and you just can't go wrong with whatever you make. Enjoy!
