I want to start off this post by saying that I don't know why I have been so tired lately. I would love to say that I am getting to bed early and getting a full eight hours of sleep, that I am not stressed out, that I am taking care of myself. Truth is? I am exhausted. In the last month I haven't gone to bed before midnight. My to-do list continues to grow; as I cross off one item, two take its place.
I admit that the tone thus far has been rather blah. While I am tired, I am so thrilled and excited with the things that are keeping me busy. None of it is bad. In fact, it is quite the opposite. I have been able to work on some incredible projects to continue bringing you, the reader, exciting content.
I'm not sure about you, but when I get stressed out and am busy, I sometimes forget to eat. It's not a good thing, I know. That is why I have been making overnight oats lately. My thought process is this: Tommy, you at least have the eat something for breakfast. Then you can go to town on your cups of coffee. For the most part, I've been successful in my attempts. And to make matters even better, the overnight oats are delicious!
Imagine this: mix up a few ingredients before bed, throw it in the fridge, wake up to a delicious healthy breakfast. Sounds a-okay to me!
2 cups rolled oats
1.5 cups almond milk
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp of chia seeds
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp of coconut flakes
1 handful of sliced almond
1 handful of dried cranberries
- Mix all the ingredients in a fridge-safe bowl and let sit overnight.
- The chia seeds and oats absorb the almond milk and make a great early morning breakfast.
- Top with sliced almonds and dried cranberries.
