It’s that time of week again- What I Ate Wednesday!
Breakfast was pretty epic, if I do say so myself. It was supposed to be pretty warm today, so I knew that overnight oats would sound good this morning. I wanted a huge portion, though, so I decided to combine voluminous oats and overnight oats!
Big Bad Mama Jama Overnight Oats
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 1/3 cup water (or almond / soy / regular milk)
- 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp honey (or agave or maple syrup)
- 1 tbsp nut butter
- 1/2 plum, chopped
- Cook oats according to voluminous oat directions. I combined the water and oats, microwaved for three minutes, and let sit for a few minutes until most of the water is absorbed.
- Stir in chia seeds and let oats cool.
- When oats are cool, stir in cinnamon and yogurt and stick in the fridge overnight.
- The next morning, top with nut butter and plum. (Or whatever other toppings!)
All the goodness of creamy overnight oats, but the portion size of voluminous oats! It was delicious and satisfying. If you don’t like sweet oats, I would leave out the honey. I used white chocolate peanut butter and the whole bowl was very sweet!
I was home by 10 this morning because I got out of class early and
ditched my other class decided to come home so I had a little snack.
I made chocolate peanut butter out of peanut flour and cocoa powder and dipped an apple in it. Finger lickin’ good!
My other eats were sprinkled throughout the afternoon. Instead of catching up on homework, I decided to try to change the theme of my blog. It was a mess! I don’t know if anyone saw the monstrosity it became for about an hour, but I switched it back until I can figure it out.
I guess there are worse things to stress eat than strawberries, right? Look how big this one is!
May I present- my lunch every day for the past week and a half!
Spinach pancake, refried beans, and ricotta cheese on spinach.
Tofu mousse may or may not have made an appearance. I scored this cereal for really cheap! I don’t recall the brand, but it’s normally really expensive because it’s organic… and it happens to be a kid’s cereal, hehe.
Dinner involved the Swiss chard I picked up from the farmer’s market on Sunday.
Stuffed with grains and dried fruit- it was amazing. I’ll post the recipe soon! Perfect to eat on a warm-ish night.
Pumpkin yogurt in the pumpkin can with more cinnamon cereal! Deeee-lish. There goes the rest of my yogurt!
Do your tastes change with the weather? As soon as it heats up, I forget all about hot oatmeal and start drinking more smoothies!
