I love being consistent with what I eat. I'm at a point where I know what I like, so why not stick to it? I've noticed the food I makes or breaks my day, it shows how I'm feeling about myself or how I'd like to feel.
A great food day for me starts off with a green juice (before my work out), overnight oats after my workout, a salad at work, trail mix & fruits as a snack, and a vegan dinner that I cooked. I'm nowhere near perfect, so those days don't ALWAYS happen for me but I love knowing I can at least count on those foods to make my day better.
My overnight oats recipe is SO simple, it's not even funny. You just need 3 ingredients to make it, and add as many toppings as you'd like. Are you ready?
1. Rolled oats
2. Milk (I mostly use coconut milk)
3. Yogurt (I use coconut milk yogurt)
My toppings vary on the day but it usually includes chia seeds, hemp heart seeds, goji berries, craisins, apples or bananas, walnuts, sliced almonds, cinnamon, maple syrup or agave or honey, almond butter... your options are endless!
I start (at night) by picking a square, clear food container, add 1/2 cup rolled oats, 1/2 cup milk, 1/3 cup yogurt. I mix all 3 ingredients until I see the right consistency (not too watery, not too dry- the oats should "cook" properly with the right amount of each) and add my toppings. I cover the container, put it in my fridge and enjoy in the morning!
My goal is to start my day on a full belly, here's a picture of my Overnight Oats Breakfast!
I normally don't use measurements for this because by now I know how I like mine. Try this recipe & tell me how you like your overnight oats! What are your favorite toppings?
