Overnight (x2) Oats

Morning and happy hump day! πŸ™‚

I’m still feeling a little bit sick, but I think I’m on the road to recovery. I slept hard last night and woke up in the exact position I went to sleep in, so hopefully that helped. Yesterday, I skipped doing yoga in the AM because I was fasting for my blood work, and I didn’t want to do anything that would potentially make me hungrier than I naturally am in the morning. But today, I did it again (yay!!) and it really felt so good. It’s only 10 minutes and you don’t even break a sweat, but it definitely wakes me up and makes me feel looser and ready to take on the day.

I had made overnight oats on Monday night for yesterday, but I didn’t end up eating them because of skipping breakfast yesterday, so I dove into them today and they were delicious. Note to self it’s ok to eat overnight oats two days later.

And I also tried some new-to-me toppings.

This bowl had:

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup light soy milk
  • 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 sliced banana
  • Toppings: almond butter, sliced almonds, and chopped dates

Yum! These toppings really made the bowl delicious, so I’m happy to have found/tried something new. There was a bit more almond butter in the jar than I thought, so I have to wait until tomorrow for oats in a jar. It should be worth it!

Have a fabulous day and I’ll be back!

  1. I’ve actually used my overnight oats for up to five days with no problem. πŸ˜€

    Happy Hump Day!

  2. I hope you are feeling better!! That is just not fun when you are sick, is it?

    Mmmm I have never made over night oats, but I will give it a try after seeing how delicious yours look!

    Have a great day!

  3. I bet the longer they sit in the fridge the better your overnight oats taste! I hope to get on the road for recovery soon too, being sick is no fun.
