5 Overnight Oats Recipes To Try This Week

Yesterday I posted a picture on my Instagram (follow here) of some Sunday prepartions I did for my busy work week. I am trying to get into the habit of preparing meals, setting out clothes, and planning activites each Sunday to make life much easier during the week. One of the things I always do is prepare breakfasts for the week. Last week I made the health muffins and this week I prepped Overnight Oats.

If you are a Tone It Up girl then you will be very familiar with this recipe. It is so easy to make and personalize with the ingredients you like. The base is 1/4-1/2 cup of quick oats and unsweetend almond milk (you can use any milk you like). To prepare you just add your ingredients to a mason jar or small container and then cover everything with your milk,sti, and leave it in the fridge while you sleep. I would add a generous amount of milk because the oats will soak it up overnight. Hence, Overnight Oats. Some people like to eat them cold straight out of the jar but I like to heat mine up in the morning. It’s all up to you.

Here are 5 of my favorite Overnight Oats recipes:

Double Almond
1/4 cup of  oats
1 scoop protein powder
Dash of cinnamon
1 pkt of stevia
1 Tbsp of almond butter
Almond milk to cover oats

Chocolate Covered Coconut
1/4 cup of oats
1 scoop PB2 chocolate OR any chocolate nut butter
1 pkt stevia
Coconut flakes
Coconut milk to cover oats

Blueberry Muffin
1/4 cup oats
1 Tbsp protien powder
Dash of cinnamon
2 tsbp of agave nectar
Handful of blueberries
Almond milk to cover

Chia Strawberry
1/4 cup of oats
3 strawberries, sliced

1 pkt of stevia
Almond milk to cover

Banana Nut 
1/4 cup of oats
1 pkt of stevia
1/2 banana, sliced
1 handful of walnuts

These are just 5 of my favorite recipes but the possibilites are endless! Let me know your favorite quick morning recipes.

Quick and Delicious Miracle Noodle Soup

Hey there!

I just wanted to share with you a recipe I tried out today. I was searching around my fridge for a healthy, but tasty, dinner option for work and came up with this soup. It turned out to be delicious!

Ingredients:

~1 Package of the Miracle Noodle, Shirataki macaroni.
~ 1/2 diced green pepper
~2 Tbsp of hemp seed hearts
~ 2 stalks of chopped celery
~Ground black pepper to taste
~A pinch of oregano for good health
~About 20-24 oz of Chicken broth (you could use veggie broth too). I just filled it up until all the other ingredients were covered and floating.
That’s it! You could also add in any favorite seasonings you like.

Before adding the noodles to the jar you want to rinse them off. Then I just added the rest of the ingredients to this big mason jar and shook it to mix everything together. When I got to work I transferred some into a small bowl and heated it in the microwave for 2 minutes. You could heat it right in the jar if you wanted.  (take the lid off, of course).

The Miracle Noodles take the flavor of whatever you cook them in so it tasted like a warm chicken noodle soup. Yum!

Bon Appetit!
