EASY like overnight oats …

Overnight oats are so freakin’ easy and so freakin’ delicious, so you oat (bahahahahaha) to try them real freakin’ soon. You will love them. I promise.

For my first attempt, I used a recipe from the blog spinach4breakfast. Since then, I have altered the recipe a million times to try new taste sensations and/or to use what I have on hand and/or to add my own ingredient ideas. When I cook, I use a whole lot of ingredients. You’d never know it, but there are 10 ingredients in that bowl of goodness above. But, you can start simple. When you get the hang of it, go CRAZY and be CREATIVE!!!

By the way, you can eat them cold right from the fridge (if that doesn’t weird you out). See, easy easy easy! Let me know how your oats go!!!

SUUUPERfood …

 

I hope you all read that title the way you would’ve said Superman’s name back in the day.

How deliciously beautiful does this look? Seriously, tell me. Weirdly, this is my first food creation post … weird because I create food (as in cooking, not growing … I’ve killed cactus so I have A LOT of work in the growing department) quite often. I suppose I’ve been holding out on you all, maybe so you don’t get jealous of the healthy goodness I eat [almost] every day. Well, now you can get jealous looking at this photo as this is what I ate for breakfast today. On the very bottom is kasha (roasted buckwheat – OMG the smell and taste of this stuff is just amazing … how does it entice my senses so?) cooked with cashew milk. Then that delectable pile on top of the grain consists of a banana, peanuts, raisins, cocoa nibs, hemp seeds, chia seeds,¬†coconut oil and cinnamon. And yes, it tastes as good as it sounds.

For serious, if you eat grains, you aren’t allergic to buckwheat (Jen, I’m talking to you), and you know what’s good for you, then you NEED to try kasha. Follow the directions on the package and if desired, replace the water with your choice of milk (I’ve also made it with ‘Thai Kitchen’ canned coconut milk). The rest of the ingredients I just sprinkle on top, no measuring necessary.

Enjoy gettin’ your kasha on !!!
