I used to hate the idea of overnight oats. I thought they’d just be horrible, cold, soggy, mush in the morning. Then, I came up with a recipe I actually adored (see it here), and I was so wrong! They’re now my favourite thing to have for breakfast. I love to make a big batch of oats to last me a few days, and it saves so much effort in the morning which is great because I am NOT a morning person!
I wanted to share my favourite combinations of ingredients to make great overnight oats, but I never follow a recipe, so it’s more of a ‘chuck everything in, hope for the best’ situation. Hope that’s cool with you.
I’ve included approximate measurements next to each ingredient but, like I said, I never measure or use a recipe, so it’s just down to you and how much of each ingredient you think you’ll like.
Remember the time I tried to give up dairy? Well, one of the things I struggled with was thinking of yummy things to eat which didn’t contain cow’s milk. If I didn’t plan ahead, I ended up eating dry toast for lunch.
So, I decided to create a Pinterest board (which you can see & follow here) to help me with my meal planning. As well as that, I thought I’d do a little round-up of some of my favourite dairy-free recipes here on the blog.
You may not know, because I’ve been incredibly cool about the fact that it’s been MY BIRTHDAY recently. Everyone knows that, with each passing year in your 20s, you have some kind of crazy cocktail of emotions about getting older. I am so weird about my birthday. Like, on the one hand I really hate to be centre of attention. But, on the other hand, I like to celebrate it and feel special and be a little self-indulgent. Just the one day a year, I swear.
B and I are fans of the UK city break, so he decided to surprise me with a night in Chester for my birthday. Chester is one of my favourite cities to visit, and I’m about to explain why. Fair warning, most of this is about stuff I ate that day. What’s new, really?
