Let’s get real with each other. The less we have to cook, the better, right?
It’s no secret that as an EoE mom, or food blogger, or just a person trying eat REAL foods, I have too many dishes.
With my switch to a full-time working mom (outside of the home), I know it’s about to get crazy, so I’m trying to develop some on-the-go type recipes. While I’ll be working at Whole Foods, I’ll still probably be bringing a lot of my own food. I know salads will be my go-to, and for breakfast, I’ll be grabbing a smoothie or a green drink and these overnight oats.
For this recipe, you really do just throw all the ingredients in a mason jar, stir it up, put the top on, and leave it in the fridge overnight. You never cook it. And yes, it tastes amazing!
Another thing I love about this recipe is that it is very inexpensive…a bag of rolled oats are only around $6 and will last a long time..plus they are versatile!!!
This would be a great recipe to start building routines around…after you make them, you’ll see how easy it is (LESS THAN 5 MINUTES TO MAKE), and since it’s a cheap meal, there really is no excuse as to why we can’t have hearty, protein filled, whole food, plant strong meals!
