During the long winter months, I savor bowls of warm, thick and creamy homemade oats.
They are filling, stick to your ribs, and warm your body and soul. I can think of nothing better to have for breakfast on a cold winter morning.
Now that the temperature is rising, and I am sweating by the time I finish blow drying my hair, hot oatmeal just does not sound appealing.
This is why I was so happy to find a recipe for Easy Overnight Vegan Oats on Oh She Glows.
I’ve tried Overnight Oats in a jar, and rather liked them 🙂
Now, it may be that I am blonde, or just plain dumb, but I’ve never thought to just make the oats overnight in a bowl! 😉
It really is easy. Mix the above listed ingredients in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge overnight. Peeking is acceptable and strongly encouraged 😉
In the morning, open fridge, pull out bowl, remove plastic wrap, top with favorite toppings, stir (if you wish), and enjoy!
These oats were topped with a tablespoon of Organic MarnaNantha Organic Raw Almond Butter and maple syrup.
This breakfast was FILLING! I couldn’t even finish eating it, and it kept me full from about 6:30 AM to around noon time.
I have a funny feeling that these oats and I will be wonderful companions this summer.
Now the great debate begins.
I have been following an every other day workout type pattern this week. Last night, before my Cinco de Mayo celebration with Larry and Brian (here’s your shout out boys! 😉 ), I did about 15 minutes of light cardio followed by an hour long BodyPump class that rocked pretty much every muscle in my body.
I hate that I’m in a workout rut, but my body is s-o-r-e. I’m thinking I’ll probably take the dogs for a walk after dinner tonight when it’s a little cooler. That way I’m not totally missing a workout, but I’m giving my poor musk-les a chance to rest.
We shall see. I may convince myself to do a thirty minute video on ExerciseTV. Who knows? 😉
Happy Almost Friday!
What is your favorite hot summer morning breakfast?
