Meatless Monday: Breakfast!

Meatless Monday: Overnight Oats

 

I’ve been dying to try making overnight oats for a while, and a couple weeks ago I didn’t have much breakfast food laying around, and I was up early, and hungry. So I made one of my normal protein shakes, and as I’m putting the blender away, I see I still have a container of Oats on the shelf. So my mind got to thinking. I’ve seen a ton of recipes before I just wasn’t sure if it’d be worth it because I do have a love/hate relationship with oatmeal. I already had everything I would need to make this, so I decided to give it a shot.

Ingredients

1/3 cup of oatmeal

2 tbsp of chia seeds

1/2 cup of strawberries

1/2 of a banana

1 cup of unsweetened almond milk

1tsp of vanilla extract

a drizzle of maple syrup

Directions.

  1. Place oatmeal, chia seeds, banana, and strawberries together in a bowl.

2. In a smaller separate bowl put together milk and vanilla and then pour that mixture over the oat chia mixture.

3. I placed the oat-chia mixture in the fridge overnight.

4. You could always add extra strawberries, or add nuts. You could also add a little more milk if it’s too thick, but I thought the texture of mine came out just right!

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
