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’m the girl who would rather sit and read a book than go out to a party. I’m the girl that feels most herself when she’s out in nature. I’m the girl who loves to get engulfed in a good TV series. I’m the girl who’s in love with superhero movies as much as she is chick flicks. I’m the girl who uses music to escape, I’m the girl that lives with anxiety every single day, but is always fighting. I believe that climate change is real, I believe in protecting the environment and all animals, domestic and wild. I believe that my vegetarian diet makes a difference in the world. I believe that a pencil can change the world. If any single bit of the above speaks to you, you've come to the right place. I'm still getting the hang of this blog thing, so bear with me.
