Recipe: Overnight Oats

SAMSUNG CSC

My hands were itching for something to do in the kitchen when I arrived home a few days ago so I decided to makes these little parfaits to last me throughout the week. Some people asked me about them after I posted a picture of them on my Instagram story so I wanted to share with you guys what exactly went into these. overnight-oats

You can add pretty much anything to these (I added more blueberries and some bee pollen), but I would keep the base as is, just so the thick consistency isn’t thrown off. Time-wise, it took me about 10 minutes to make 6 of these in mason jars. Just make the base, add in the rest, pop the top on, and let them sit in the fridge overnight and you’re good to go! Easy peasy.SAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSCSAMSUNG CSC

Recipe: Turmeric Oatmeal

SAMSUNG CSC

I came back from Mammoth on Sunday and woke up Monday with a hor.ri.ble cold, so I was trying to figure out something that was both warming and anti-inflammatory that I could eat for breakfast. First thing that came to mind was of course oatmeal, and then regarding something with inflammatory-fighting powers I thought duh, turmeric. At first it sounded super weird to me but then I thought about how good I could make this with some added honey and other spices to tone down the intensity of the turmeric.

I ended up adding some adaptogens to manage any unwanted stress, as well as chia seeds, bee pollen, and almond butter for some protein. ANYWAYS, it turned out being SO bombbb and I highly recommend trying it out especially for those colder days!
