God bless refrigerators.
Some of you might know how much I love overnight oats (<— I need to update that recipe a little!), but in the past couple years I’ve discovered some other overnight breakfasts that are making me dance before I’m fully cognizant in the morning.
Not only are these breakfasts delicious (thanks to the breakfast trifecta), but they require little to no effort in the morning when you’re
running late so ready to eat breakfast. Here’s a look at some of the overnight breakfasts I’ve been loving lately.
“Banana Pudding for Breakfast” via Yeah…Imma Eat That
One of the most ingenious and impressive-looking breakfasts ever. It’s basically a peanut butter oatmeal cookie – yogurt parfait. Praaaaise.
Next up is this banana bread “custard” oatmeal, inspired by The Big Man’s World.
Get this: You cook oatmeal on the stovetop the night before, and you add a whole egg and some coconut flour to make it the most doughy, fluffy oatmeal ever. Then you chill it in the fridge overnight, which makes it this dense, cake-like dish.
The night before, I cooked 1/2 c. rolled oats in 1/2 c. water and 1/2 c. milk. Then I stirred in half a very ripe banana, 1 tbsp. coconut flour, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, a pinch of salt, and a drizzle of honey. Once it was thickened, I turned off the heat and whisked in a whole egg.
Optional: eat with a side of plain Greek yogurt for some more texture and creamy dreaminess.
Last one is something you’ve often seen: overnight oat smoothies, inspired by Kath Eats.
This is what I ate this morning, and it was the most luscious smoothie ever. I’m sad it’s gone.
In the blender last night:
- 1/2 c. milk
- 1/3 c. oats
- 1/3 c. plain greek yogurt
- cinnamon and nutmeg
- 1-2 tbsp. peanut butter
- 1 tbsp. chia seeds
- pinch of salt
Pop it in the fridge. Then in the morning, add half a frozen banana and half a frozen peach (~1.5 c. frozen fruit total). Add more milk as needed to blend your concoction into a magical cloud of peachy, peanut buttery goodness.
The chia seeds and frozen fruit MAKE this smoothie.
I’m done fan-girling over my breakfasts.
Now onto Weekly Moves and Grooves! I’m still keeping workouts low-key and feeling pretty awesome. I’ve loved working on mobility and skills such as handstands this summer.
- Friday: handstands and mobility in the hotel
- Saturday: Rest
- Sunday: Rest
- Monday: 8 minute abs
- Tuesday: 45 minute yoga
- Wednesday: 1 mile walk, (probably too many) air squats and other bodyweight leg exercises, handstands
- Thursday: Rest
Today is my last day at my physical therapy internship! It’s been an amazing learning experience, and I’m grateful for the people with whom I’ve worked.
Tomorrow starts early for Dad and I, since we’re driving up to Ontariooooo. It’s been a hot minute since we visited our relatives in Canada, so I’m stoked!
Happy Friday! Let your hair loose, let your foot loose, don’t let your dog loose.
