Overnight Oats

It has been far too long since I last blogged. That’s what an extremely busy career will do to a person. I haven’t even had time to Brunch! Oh, the horror!  I jotted down a few notes, so I may go back and fill in a few days of events if I ever get a chance.

Anyway, I just enjoyed a glorious bowl of Overnight Oats for breakfast. I didn’t think I was going to blog about it, so I didn’t take a picture. In case you are wondering, Overnight Oats are a mixture of raw oats, liquid (milk, almond milk, greek yogurt), sweetener (sugar, honey, agave, stevia), and whatever else you want (banana, chia seeds, etc.). Mix these all together in a bowl (or an almost-empty nut butter jar), cover, and refrigerate the oats overnight.  Hence, Overnight Oats.  In the morning you can add toppings: nut butter, granola, nuts, crumbled up muffin, etc. Then you eat it, cold.

Last night I mixed a bowl of oats, chia seeds, two small dashes of pumpkin pie spice, two tiny drops of almond essence, and honey.  This morning I topped it with a dollop of almond butter. Did I mention it was glorious?

In other news, I have had my Vitamix for 21 days, and I have used it 18 days. I love it! So happy I purchased one. It may be the placebo effect, but I think the increase in my consumption of greens and fruits is giving me more energy. I hardly eat fruits and veggies, even though I like them. Usually the fruit at the store looks uber gross (blemishes, etc.) and the veggies spoil in the fridge before I have time to cook them (work gets in the way). Buying a few fruits and veggies a few times a week and quickly blending them into a green smoothie works best for my schedule, and allows me to have fruit and veggies every single day.

That’s all for now. Off to start a very busy Saturday.
