I have recently become obsessed with making overnight oats. As you may have gathered I try to do all my prep work at night because I need as much sleep and snooze button hits as I can in the morning. I prepare this the night before…throw it in my lunch traveller
(that’s a good post read it) and eat it when I get to the office. It seriously keeps me full until lunchtime. It has lots of protein from the greek yogurt and tons of fiber from the oatmeal and Chia seeds
. Where do I get the Chia seeds from? Do you even have to guess?….yes you are correct Costco sells a huge pouch of it for like $14. Check it the next time you are there.
My “recipe” for Overnight Oats
#1Pour some oatmeal in a to go plastic container because honestly who has fancy glass jars like this….we are eating this at the office….nobody to impress. If you want me to be technical let’s say 1/2 a cup of oats.
#2What kind of Oats?…wow you are being very specific now. Don’t buy the fancy stuff…like steel cut…buy the tub of quick Quaker Oats that your parents use to make you growing up. It’s like $3 for that huge cylinder. I bought the Publix brand because it was buy one get one (BOGO if you will).
#3 Take a spoon and cut down the middle and scoop out half the container of whatever Greek yogurt is on sale or you had a coupon for.
#4 Dump it on top of the oats.
#5Pour enough almond milk (I use Original) over the top so that you can mix it all together. If you want to dirty and clean a measuring cup it’s around 2/3 of a cup. I like to eyeball it…less cleanup.
#6Stir all the together..you will start to figure out what ratio you like. I like a little more milk less yogurt.
#7 With a clean spoon (made that mistake once….maybe twice). Drop a tablespoon of Chia seeds in.
#8 Stir it around.
#9 Put on the lid and give that a shake.
#10Pop it in the fridge and in the morning enjoy
One more for good luck
In the morning drop in a spoonful of peanut butter
or like I did the other day with Biscoff Spread
Taking it back to the Barre for you. I mean you could even do this on your lunch break at your office. Print this out and try it. There are a lot of moves that are taking right from class. If you have any questions on the technique please feel free to ask me! Here is the original pin link
I absolutely adore this quote. It seems to fit perfectly for how I feel about this little niche of a space I have here. Blogging has been such a creative outlet for me and getting to know so many amazing women around the country and world. Okay I’ll stop gushing but I really mean it!
I thought this was so appropriate after my fashion post this week. I absolutely have to agree.
I feel this way every time I read a serving size on a Trader Joe’s package. “Serves 6″….I mean I think…well I know what it just served and the whole package was just me.
Do you do this at all? I am constantly sending Pins to my girlfriends..and then we comment on them…texting is so 2013.
How I felt when Bravo was premiering my potential new favorite guilty pleasure Southern Charm.
then 15 minutes into it I heard one of the guys say something about not having a problem with cocaine he “just liked the way it smelled”
I immediately took it off my DVR list. No thanks I’ll just stick with Party Down South from now on.
