Milestone 1: Well folks, it happened: it’s been two months and I finally finished my first jar of peanut butter in New Orleans!
Milestone 2: First overnight oats!!
If you follow the healthy living blogworld, you are probably thinking to yourself: has this girl been living under a rock??? And to that I say, almost. But no. I have just been content with my oatmeal and oat bran as they are. However, last night I decided that my peanut butter jar was a sign from the heavens. It was time.
I decided to make enough for at least two days and added:
– 2/3 cup oatmeal
– 2/3 cup milk
– 2/3 cup yogurt (eyeballed that one)
– ground flax
– cinnamon and nutmeg
and let it all sit in the refrigerator over night. This is what I had in the morning:
In comparison to regular oats, they’re cold, softer/mushier, and creamier. Obviously there is a bunch of dairy in there that I don’t normally add, but it had a very mild and creamy flavor that was really pretty nice. And sometimes I don’t need the warmth of my typical oatmeal, especially when it’s in the 80s outside. The verdict? I liked it and I’ll do it again!
