Revitalize Part 2

{This week I'm giving you my tried & true, tested, specific ideas for getting out of a slump!}

Tuesday:
Overnight Oats//Solid Breakfast

{overnight oats with banana, sunflower nut butter, and chocolate-covered cacoa nibs for the win!}

A solid breakfast in the morning consistently really helps me when I'm feeling out of sorts. It takes a teeny tiny bit of effort, but the results are so worth it. I actually enjoy the routine of making my overnight oats at night and relishing the fact that I will have a refreshing, healthy breakfast to grab while I read my #HelloMornings. I wake up, start my tea water, and check in with HelloMornings. Then I top my oats, make my tea, and settle in to read scripture for awhile. Such a good way to bring light back to your heart. To get in the habit of making my oats, I made a fridge chart and made them every weekday for a week. Then I did it the next week. Now it's second nature!

Overnight Oats

In a bowl combine: 

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats (gluten-free if need be)
1/2 cup yogurt (I like banana or raspberry)
1/2 cup milk (I've been doing coconut milk or almond milk)
Glug of maple syrup
1 tsp. flax seeds

Mix well, cover, and refrigerate overnight. It's that easy, and it uses one measuring cup and one spoon. In the morning, top it up! I usually do banana, chocolate-covered cacao nibs, and sunflower nut butter, but I switch it up sometimes. Try adding jam or dried fruit, fresh berries, or anything else you can come up with! I fiddle the first week with several overnight oats recipes with different ratios, and this was my personal favorite. But feel free to add more or less liquid as you please.

Enjoy!

I love overnight oats! Thanks for the reminder to add it to my breakfast repertoire :) blueberries are a favorite mix in for me!

I tried a receipe similar to this and it had a bitter taste. Any ideas why :)

My first guess would be that your oats weren't the freshest...put one on the tip of your tongue and see if it tastes rancid or not. If not, I'm not sure? I've had one batch taste a bit off, but other than that, every other (of dozens) have turned out fine. Could just be a fluke! :-)

Could also be the flax or chia seeds being rancid if you used those...
