Overnight Oats

I am officially back from my lovely trip to Toronto and while I was gone things have changed. Starbucks has their red cups now, it seems to be Christmas in all the stores, I am now 25 and It seems to be a lot colder in Vancouver. I am happy to be back in Vancouver and see the mountains and the ocean but I am missing Toronto at the same time. My trip consisted of visiting with family and friends, checking out the new Aquarium, going to numerous Halloween parties, having a wonderful dinner on the top of the CN Tower and I could go on forever but I will stop there.

While I was gone I ate out quite a bit and was also spoiled to have someone cook a few delicious meals for me. But now that I am back in Vancouver I am trying to get back to my usual eating habits. One of my favourite things to have for breakfast is Overnight Oats. This is a great meal if you don’t have time to make something in the morning because most of it is made the night before. This meal is full of fibre and protein and it is a great meal to start off a busy day. The best thing about overnight oats is that you can change it up every morning if you wanted to.

  • Combine the oats, greek yogurt, milk, and chia seeds into a bowl. Cover with a lid or plastic wrap. Let the mixture to sit in the refrigerator overnight.
